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.
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.
No doubt whatsoever. The fellow is BONKERS.
Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result.
Albert was describing Chucky and his insane obsession with trying to disarm us.

Commonly known as attempted blackmail.
Maybe someone should counterorganize and show up wearing US Border Patrol and ICE uniforms, and escort their illegal asses back across the border.
Oh...wait...I forgot... that would be like, you know, like, the government actually doing it’s job, like, and umm, well, actually enforcing the law.
Against criminals, I mean... instead of, you know, eavesdropping and spying on Citizens...
I’m jus’ sayin’....
Schumer is taking lessons from Al Sharpton, if you don’t get what you want start a riot.
