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.
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.
