LUIS GUTIERREZ CLAIMS HE'S 'NOT FOR AMNESTY'
Breitbart ^ | 15 Jun 2014 | TONY LEE

Posted on 06/16/2014 5:37:36 AM PDT by moonshinner_09

On Sunday, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) claimed that he is "not for amnesty" and has never spoken to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) about immigration issues. Discussing Cantor's shocking upset on ABC's This Week, Gutierrez, despite traveling with Cantor to New York last year on a pro-amnesty tour, said that he has "never had a conversation with Eric Cantor about immigration." Gutierrez said that any Republican who is framed as supporting "amnesty" will lose and said even he was against amnesty even though he has been the most vocal and prominent amnesty supporter. "I am not for amnesty," he said. "I am for replacing the illegal immigration system with a legal immigration system." Gutierrez not only believes all of the country's illegal immigrants should be granted citizenship, but he has also suggested that "every institution" should try to work around the country's immigration laws. The outspoken Representative has said that DREAMers should be allowed to enlist in the military, President Barack Obama should unilaterally ease deportations and expand the temporary amnesty program to include parents of DREAMers, and has praised the Senate's comprehensive amnesty bill and the House GOP leadership's "immigration principles." In fact, Gutierrez even pointed out that the House GOP's "immigration principles," which declared that one of the great "founding principles" of the nation was that illegal immigrant children should be given citizenship so they are not punished for the mistakes of their parents, leaves a path for all of the nation's illegal immigrants to eventually get citizenship. As Breitbart News reported, Cantor also tried to claim that he was an anti-amnesty warrior in the weeks leading up to the campaign, but voters in his district did not buy it.

Exactly... “amnesty” is just an administrative exercise that would formalize the invasion already happening.

"I am not for amnesty," he said. "I am for replacing the illegal immigration system with a legal immigration system."

Oh. Well why didn't you say so?

Hilarious.

Regardless of how purposefully slowly he spoke his ridiculous argument, the fact remains that they are saying “replace an illegal immigration system with a legal immigration systems”.

One is not supposed to ask nor answer the begged question here, “we already have a legal immigration system, what’s wrong with it?”

In other words, Democrats (him included) along with Cantor, Paul, Graham, McConnell, McCain, Romney, Christie, et al don’t want “deep thinking” on this. Just obfuscation, diversion and tugging on heart strings of America with BS platitudes and “the children.”

Yeah, well, Bill Clinton said he did not have sexual relations with that woman Monica Lewisnky.

You can't believe anything a 'RAT says. They're all liars.

It is weird that the communists are dumping the illegals primarily in RED STATES. Must have something to do with taking the power out of the hands of American voters.

The thing is that he defines amnesty different from the people.

He is just using his own definition of the word. It is not amnesty if the lawbreakers learn English, pay affine, and get to the back of the line.

Any legislation that allows the lawbreakers to stay and work here is amnesty.

Yup, he’s not for Amnesty, he just wants all the illegals to be able to stay here, not be punished, and continue to get lots of benefits and eventually citizenship and be allowed to vote legally (because we know they’re voting now illegally). But no, he’s not for Amnesty.

That “illegal immigration system” must be the one that does not automatically register those unregistered democrats crossing illegally into the US.

Exactly. McCain, Graham, Ryan, Corker, Alexander, Jeb Bush, etc. are pushing the same line as Gutierrez that this is not amnesty. McCain has been saying that since 2007.

Illegal aliens are undocumented workers. Amnesty is not amnesty, but rather, an earned path to citizenship. Words have meanings.

Britt Hume on Fox a week ago claimed that no one is in favor of amnesty and no politician is proposing amnesty. This Orwellian use of language is breathtaking.

The swarm at the border have no higher aspirations than to suck-off the backs of US taxpayers.

The border-violators are the advancing force of the armed insurgency, salivating to takeover the American SW.....and they plan to do it on our dime.

Illegals are notorious for using stolen SS nos and fake ID's.
We need to determine the fraudulent names and multiple identities of those:

<><> fraudulently pocketing welfare, food stamps, EITC refunds, SSI, free medical care, Section 8 housing, UI, Workmen's comp,

<><> falsely getting hefty SS checks by claiming "asylum,"

<><> falsifying apps to get fraudulent sub-prime mortgages,

<><> making false claims on IRS forms in order to get multiple EITC refunds,

<><> falsely using illegal drivers' licenses,

<><> wire-transferring money back to Mexico; the Third World,

<><> opening offshore accounts under multiple identities,

<><> getting paid as agents of foreign governments.

=========================================

Cashing multiple govt checks under several identities is generally used in these categories:

UI, SSI, Workmen's Comp,

TANF (temporary assistance to needy families),

WICS (food assistance),

subsidized Section 8 shelter,

ObamaPhone subsidies,

Utility Assistance subsidies,

School breakfasts/lunches/snacks subsidies,

$5000 a year EITC checks per identity.

Rewarding illegals with full citizenship and even more welfare government handouts is not amnesty, says Luis.

He says he is against amnesty. But he is for Obama stopping deportations and welcoming them as if they are full US citizens.

IS GUTIERREZ AN AGENT OF FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS? Gutierrez and Members of the tax-subsidized Congressioanl Hispanic Caucus (C/H/C)---including latino US Senators who voted for the Senate amnesty bill----have enormous conflicts of interests and cannot be allowed to drive the debate on this issue.

ARE LATINO LAWMAKERS AND PRESSURE GROUPS IN COLLUSION W/ FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS? The Congressional Hispanic Caucus, La Raza, "hyphenated voting rights groups" etc, should be the subjects of exhaustive investigations, to uncover possible activities coordinated w/ foreign governments.

==================================================

Taxpayers demand the Bank Secrecy Act be used to prosecute govt fraud, pronto.

SAMPLE LETTER TO LAW ENFORCEMENT
Taxpayers are urged to act now.
FBI TIPS PAGE https://tips.fbi.gov
EMAIL enforcement@SEC.gov

SUBJECT: Collusion, conspiracy, and bribery
IN RE: financial irregularities
REFERENCE: govt fraud, falsified documents, wire transfers, accounting fraud, terrorism, armed insurgency, etc.

NARRATIVE Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of multiple conspiracies by government insiders to collude in sub rosa deals to personally profit and/or to facilitate redistribution schemes.

OF INTEREST TO LAW ENFORCEMENT The FBI should interrogate individuals for evidence of multiple schemes to falsify documents to further foreign schemes. The FBI should investigate any and all official documents submitted by the C/H/C, La Raza and latino pressure groups.

Crimes might include---conspiracy, collusion, falsifying official documents (a felony), money laundering, tax evasion, extorting taxpayers, theft of govt monies, misuse of public office and government positions, financing the insurgency, funding the SW armed takeover plans, etc.

Examine C/H/C members and personnel tax returns with a fine-tooth comb.....especially entries for "interest income."

====================================================

RAMPANT CONFLICT OF INTEREST Elected officials who belong to the C/H/C have an inherent conflict of interest in the amnesty provision b/c it protects elected latinos from wrongdoing .....ergo, votes for amnesty by Gutierrez and members of The Congressional Hispanic Caucus are automatically disqualified by US law.

AMNESTY PROTECTION RACKET EMBEDDED IN US LAW the Senate amnesty bill actually protects corrupt Latino Public Officials from US laws and from prosecution.......only latino pols. Vote-crazed Dems allow amnesty to absolve elected/appointed latinos holding US public office from prosecution for wrongdoing---for crimes like government fraud, graft, bribery, selling votes for cash....(the usual politician crimes).

===============================================

There really is a Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials organized for govt fraud.

NANCY SUCKS UP at Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials Gala in DC
L-R--Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ);
Dr Salomon Melgen (under scrutiny for corrupt deals w/ Sen Menendez);
Rep Nancy Pelosi (Dimwit-CAL); Francisco
J. Sanchez, US Under Secy of Commerce for Intl Trade,
Emilio Sanchez, Pres/CEO of VOXXI.

“It is weird that the communists are dumping the illegals primarily in RED STATES. Must have something to do with taking the power out of the hands of American voters.”

They are now being flown from Texas to Mass. Its part of the plan. That way the government can claim they no longer know where any of the illegals went. That way they can’t be returned to their native country. Face it, democrats are ten steps ahead on this one. So the democrats want us to believe we can’t scoop up illegal aliens and deport them but we can scoop up illegal aliens and transport them all over this nation. Riiiiight.

Of course, he isn’t for amnesty. Neither is McCain, Graham, Cornyn, Cantor, Ryan, Boehner, Rubio, Paul, et al., wink wink nudge nudge.

Same ole canard: It really isn’t amnesty. But, no matter how much lipstick you put on it, not matter what you call it [such as regularization], it is still amnesty.

We have been going in circles over the rhetoric and definitions since 2001. Who are we going to believe? Them or our lying eyes and ears?

Ohhhh, what’s going on at our southern border now? An invasion — no matter what the politicians want to call it. It is an invasion.
