A senior Democratic senator predicted Sunday there could be massive demonstrations in Washington if House Republicans try to block a bill to grant legal status to millions of immigrants.
Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the lead Democratic sponsor of the Senate immigration reform bill, said House Republicans would likely spark massive civil rights rallies if they try to quash measures to create a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country.
This has the potential of becoming the next major civil rights movement. I could envision in the late summer or early fall if Boehner tries to bottle the bill up or put something in without a path to citizenship if theres no path to citizenship, theres not a bill but if he tries to bottle it up or do things like that, I could see a million people on the Mall in Washington, Schumer said on CNNs State of the Union.
Schumer said business leaders, evangelical leaders and CEOs of high tech companies would join the public call for action by the House on immigration.
Schumer has counted about 67 votes for the Senate immigration bill and believes close to 70 will support final passage later this week.
I do believe that having a significant number of Republicans will change the dynamic in the House. Individual Congress members from red districts, if they see their senators voted for it and they decide to do the right thing, there will be huge pressure on [Speaker John] Boehner [R-Ohio] not to block immigration reform, said Schumer.
Schumer predicted that Boehner will have to bring legislation very similar to the Senate bill to the House floor, even if a majority of his conference would not support it.
He will have no choice as the pressure mounts over the summer, Schumer added.
He said Boehner would have to abandon the so-called Hastert Rule and bring legislation granting legal status to millions of illegal immigrants even if less than half of the House GOP conference is willing to vote for it.
No amnesty, no peace?
Sounds basically like an extortion attempt.
The government will be giving away the US to any and all illegals that want to come here. Contest will be what to name the new country.
You mean Rubio’s new best friend?
Is that a threat Chuckie?
Bring. It. ON.
He should call Al & Je$$e for help. Oh wait....
“Mass demonstrations” of the left are threats of violence.
Repost but it’s good news
Let the illegals invade the streets and scream demands
I agree. Shoot it down now and let them riot. Washington in rubble. Who cares.
Don't pass GO. Do Not collect possessions, Just wearing the clothes they have on.
Tell Chuck The Schmuck he can join them since he loves them so much.
Schumer has evil eyes.
Block off the rest of his face and just look at his eyes.
Get ready for La Raza to break out the Mexican flags. Or did they learn their lesson the last time illegal aliens mass-marched for citizenship?
Being ILLEGAL already means you are breaking the law and don’t give a fig; so why would they care if they have to bust a few WHITE heads to get what they think they want?
So, Schumer says the “right” thing is to grant amnesty and citizenship. Why is this the “right” thing to do? Why is it the next major civil rights issue? I thought homosexual marriage was the civil rights issue of our time. Why is an immigration policy discussion a matter of “civil rights” for people who are in this country illegally, who by definition do not have the same civil rights as American citizens?
Or do you have to be liberal to understand this reasoning??? Maybe I’m just not with it.
Bring it on!
The last push for Illegal Alien Amnesty brought out all those third world scuzballs....and it got Americans attention. And it help defeat Amnesty.
Evil and stoopid are close but not the same thing. He has stoopid eyes.
That's their talking points "civil rights movement", albeit that the Civil Rights of U.S. Citizens to "be safe in their effects and " homes are shit-canned in the process....we have ILLEGAL PEOPLE in this country, serving in jobs to lower the costs to businesses that donate HEAVILY to the Politician's Campaigns, and in turn the Quid Pro Quo is AMNESTY for their workers, and handouts on top of that from Taxpaying REAL Americans (not Foreign Invaders who broke the Law).
Firing Squads should be being assembled nationwide, to be ready to re-take the USA in the near future, because as long as the money-interests place these ass-kissers in Power, we are stuck in this dismal situation.
It sounds like Schumer wants to incite a riot, but since when does congress pass laws to avoid illegal acts by foreign invaders ( formerly known as illegal aliens)?
time to fight fire with fire...lets Freep these freeloading criminals head on....
Fomented by foreign nationals illegally on U.S. soil.
Let's just call it what it is in that case: terrorism.
An invading force has no "Constitutional Right" to demonstrate about anything.
Chuckie will do anything to get his new, unbeatable, democrat voting block.
The man is a vile demon from hell.
It's what I've been warning about here for years: the Left wants to make immigration into the United States a civil right...but only if you're non-white.
To them, the border is racist, because it prevents non-whites from coming in at will.
Invasion as a Civil Right.
The Chinese military is taking note.
Is he going to pay the Social Security taxes for his rent-a-mob?
How much would it cost Rat Headquarters to bus all 30 million wetbacks to DC? And what form of legislative...or accounting...fraud would they use to stick the productive people of this nation with the bill?
And most of the protesters will be ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. People who have BROKEN THE LAW.
If I was in prison on a felony drug charge, I’d sue the US government for not applying justice evenly. If they don’t pay for their crimes, why should anyone else?
Chuck you, Schumer!
New Yorkers should be punished for electing such Leftist scum as Schumer, Nadler and Lowey to represent them. They don’t deserve anything but our scorn.
People assembling in the capital city to protest the House defending the Constitution...oh, the horror. And it’s so expensive to get rent-a-mobs these days. That’s it, Congress can’t make any controversial decisions, ever again.
Chuck the schmuck continues acting like a big @zzhole. (that he is)
Intimate and maybe even do a little NSA to find dirt for a vote................
Bring It Chucky
Exactly. Let that city turn into a war zone. They deserve it.
Bleep you, Shmuckles. You POS.
The Washingtonians from the blue blood banker faction Republicans cannot stop the Tea Party in the House.
they threatened riots if obamacare didn’t pass too, the bastards.
When this many people who are supposed to represent the People (aka Citizens) are supporting amnesty for law-breakers to reward the law-breakers, there has to be people threatening senators with the do it or else we come for you and your family. I think the senators are nothing but chicken. I believe there are many threats being thrown at people in the senator although many are lining their pockets by supporting the law-breakers. Money and Threats is what are the driving factors (imho) plus the fact that the truth cannot be told. It would upset the Citizens if the Citizens knew a standing army was being moved into their neighborhoods. Please don't tell anyone. It's a secret!
Prayers up that you are correct. My worry is our numbers are few. Money and Threats do many things to many different types of people.
Maybe he can work with Al and Jessy and syncronize them with the Trevon shopping spree.
Schumer is BEGGING for trouble. He may well get what he asks for.
The plan all along was to make sure this bill was pure garbage ,pass it in the Senate and have it fail in the House so all the blame could go to the GOP . All the protests etc are all ready to go 5 minutes after the House kills it
And that’s the whole point of passing it in the Senate, and they can blame the racist republicans in 2014 elections. And this is the reason the Gang of Ocho are traitors for being played yet again...
