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.
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...
Would be the stupidest thing anyone could do. White America is on edge, we area tinder box, it is best to leave us alone.
This is why the Dems want to take away guns from law abiding citizens. Can’t defend yourself if you are rendered helpless. Let these animals destroy DC, NY, Phila., Atlanta, Detroit, Chicago, etc... They won’t be rioting anywhere near the Clingers(to Religion and guns).
Bring It, Schmuckie.
Okay. Fine with me. Let ‘em demonstrate.
There is a plan as I see it. Maybe am all wet but I sense everything done by D.C. is part of a grander plan. Their plan is implemented in increments small enough that their thoughts have been ... it will go unnoticed. They may succeed with their plan but am certain this is following a script or plan. The end result will not be what the Citizens thought and are being told (imho).
So let us use them as target practice
This would be a great opportunity to round up all the criminals and deport them since they will all be in one place.
DO IT!!, DO IT!!, DO IT!!
And remember to bring those Mexican flags. Let them BURN DOWN THE CITIES.
In other words, let AMERICA see just who we’re legalizing through this process, should it pass.
Someone should remind chuckles the clown what aiding and abeiting and enemy (hoards of invading criminal aliens) is called, and what the legal punishment is.
