Schumer predicts (will organize) mass demonstrations if House blocks path to citizenship
thehill.com ^ | 6/23/13 | Alexander Bolton

Posted on 06/23/2013 4:26:09 PM PDT by cotton1706

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 there’s no path to citizenship, there’s 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 CNN’s “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.

Arrest any illegal participating in a mass demonstration, Frog march them to a bus and take them immediately over the border to where they came from.

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.

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.

"This has the potential of becoming the next major civil rights movement."

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)?

“This has the potential of becoming the next major civil rights movement.

Civil rights? They're illegal. They're not being discriminated against.....they're being allowed to stay. They broke the law! This bill actually discriminates against those trying to immigrate legally.

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.

Civil rights? They're illegal

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.

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!

about 67 votes for the Senate immigration bill and believes close to 70 will support final passage later this week

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!

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
