Skip to comments.New House Majority Leader: Border Security, Then Legalization
Posted on 06/29/2014 1:42:40 PM PDT by Cringing Negativism Network
Kevin McCarthy, the California Republican who replaced Virginia representative Eric Cantor as House majority leader, believes there is an opportunity to negotiate for the legalization of illegal immigrants, but not until the border is secure.

But where is the evidence of this?
Secure the border.
Secure the border.
Secure the border.
Doesn’t sound good to me.
How about border security and enforcement?
Howsabout secure the border, then send them back and tell them to get in line!!!!
3 2 1 Obama announces , THE BORDER IS SECURE ,D’oh
Well I’d be equally for that plan.
I just want someone. Anyone. Some party. Some leader. To stand up and do something about our nonexistant border security.
Neither party, is doing one thing.
Not one thing.
Wake the heck up, stand up and take a stand. Darn it.
Border security, then deportation, then prosecution of any company that hires illegals, then the army is sent to the border, then Mexico is informed that if their idiot military crosses into U.S. territory at any point we will shoot on sight.
You can bet that we will not get border security
What's wrong with simply enforcing the f*****g law? Oh yeah, that's not what the Chamber et al wants - that's what's wrong with it.
Attrition thru enforcement should be our policy.
And what is the definition of reform, pray tell?
FYI, link does not work for me. Page not found.
I think something changed.
New House Majority Leader: Border Security, Then Legalization

I still have the original article on a page, but I don’t seem to link to it anymore...
Same Old, same old...
Time to get rid of the old GOP, and replace them with new blood.
One term in office,
Two terms in JAIL!!!!
40% of illegals are those who have overstayed their visas. The largest number in this 40% group are Indians. Unless and until we have a no-holes barred deportation, al this is utterly worthless. The whole world knows if you step foot in the US, that’s enough. The Indians, in particular have turned it into an art to exploit the prospects for chain immigration aided and abetted by a large cottage industry of immigration lawyers.
Stipulate COMPLETE border security as a *pre-condition* for amnesty talks, with lots of flowers and pomp and circumstance, and then after that’s complete simply fold our arms and negotiate 0% and amnesty ZERO Mexicans..?
How about that?
And then deport ALL the illegals.
OK it seems to be back now.
“”McCarthy said. Until you secure the borders, you cannot have the conversation about anything else.””
Looks like it’s going to be a rather long wait for that “conversation.”
“”Today, according to staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5 percent of the double-layer fencing is complete, only 36.3 miles.””

I doubt if anyone is buying the BS any longer.
We need a halt to all immigration, legal and otherwise, until we can get this whole thing sorted out. We need to seal the southern border for one thing. End foreign aid to countries between Texas and Colombia until a wall gets paid for.
That 40% canard only works by understating by a factor of 3 the total number of illegals here currently.
Weasel words for the same old treason.
But does he mean it?
Anything not Deportation is Amnesty
You do not have Border Security if you let all those who previously violated stay
There is no Border Security without Deportation
No. Usually they will have a plan to have a certification process to show the border is secure, but it will be political and they will simply vote to say the border is secured whether it is or not.
I understand completely the standpoint that we should send home the 30 million or so illegals who are already here.
I am not taking issue with that, though I would go easier on those who are here already.
Not taking anything away from that however, just my own preference. However I very much take issue with not doing something to simply defend the border.
That bothers me enormously, and we need that fixed 100%.
Fence off the border. All of it.
Tell that to the Chinese (who are flooding over by the thousands from Mexico via Cuba).
Obama is encouraging and using this flood of illegal immigrants to achieve some goal, and I’m not even sure what it is.
Of COURSE there’s an opportunity.
AFTER we secure the border,
AFTER we send ALL the illegals home, AND
AFTER Hell Freezes over. . .
wanna guess what the RINO definition of “secure” is ?
The Silicon Valley interests and the Chamber of Commerce constantly keep pressuring Congress to increase limit on H1B visas. The 40% illegals are those who have overstayed their visa is demonstrable evidence that enforcement of even illegals whose identity etc are known and documented goes unenforced!
What is the definition of “eforcement”?
False Personation of a U.S. Citizen (18 U.S.C. § 911). Illegal aliens often present themselves as U.S. citizens, an act punishable by up to five years in jail, a felony. This law is often cited in immigration prosecutions and may involve, for example, an alien claiming U.S. citizenship to his employer.
Fraud and False Statements (18 U.S.C. § 1001). It is common for illegal aliens to make false statements to the government or on official documents. An illegal alien violates this law when claiming to be a U.S. citizen on an I-9 Employment Eligibility form and faces a fine and up to five years imprisonment.
Social Security Fraud (42 U.S.C. § 408). This statute has been invoked where an illegal alien provided a false Social Security number for the purpose of acquiring a job, where an illegal alien used a fraudulent Social Security number for the purpose of acquiring a driver's license, and when an illegal alien used a Social Security card belonging to a citizen in order to obtain Section 8 housing, for example. Violation of this statute can result in a fine and/or imprisonment up to five years. The court can also require violators to provide restitution to the victims.
Look at it this way. There is NO WAY the Administration can say the border is secure.
Small comfort for an ongoing invasion.
What BS! Does McCarthy think we are so stupid?
As soon as a ‘Border Security Bill’ is passed in the House and sent to the Senate, the Senate will immediately amend it with their Gang of 8 bill including full amnesty. Then the bill will go to conference whose membership is chosen by ...guess....yep, Boehner and McCarthy. Then the conference bill is brought out to the House floor for a vote and all dems and 17 republican “squishes” will vote to pass amnesty.
NO IMMIGRATION BILL! NOT ONE WORD NOT ONE IOTA OF IMMIGRATION LEGISLATION IS TO BE PASSED IN THE HOUSE UNTIL CONSERVATIVES CONTROL CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE!
Nice graphic but WON’T WORK! See post #37.
RINO translation of “now”: A bill promising to secure the border within 10 years combined with immediate legalization of illegal immigrants.
They been trying to secure the border since 1986 and here it is 2014 sounds a lot 1986 did.. As long as Obama is in office that border will remain wide open.
This is going to be a trick. A couple months from now Obama will declare the borders secure. This is also a way for the stinky RINOs to grant Ostinko his 2 billion dollars.
Trust no RINO or democrat.
I picked up on it right after I sent the message. Thanks for the clarification. I was a bit slow on that one.
