Skip to comments.GOP Establisment: Congress Should Give Obama 'Blank Check' to Address Border Crisis
Posted on 07/13/2014 9:47:41 AM PDT by Rusty0604
While liberal activists keep pushing Democrats to make more concessions regarding the flood of illegal immigrant children across the border, GOP consultants in D.C. are suggesting that Republicans roll over and approve President Barack Obama's request for $3.7 billion without any concessions.
And they are doing so to liberal outlets like the Huffington Post.
Al Cardenas, the Chairman of the American Conservative Union, told the liberal outlet that the border crisis is actually an excuse to pass comprehensive amnesty legislation. He said this is a "crisis in need of a solution, and that's what you go to Congress for."
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Republicans should just roll over and not ask for concessions because doing so would make them "get blamed for perpetuating the problem."
Frank Luntz, the establishment Republican strategist, said "being right is not enough" and Republicans have to "be for something, not just against the President." That usually is code for more government or being Democrat-lite.
Liz Mair, a Republican strategist, told the Huffington Post that Republicans cannot look "unsympathetic to a bunch of toddlers still eating from bottles and wearing diapers" and risk being "deeply offensive to Latino voters" and motivating more of them to vote for Democrats.

Why vote for the impostors when you can vote for the real thing. GOP the moderate wing of the DNC.
oh and while your worrying about the spanics not voting for you you are making people like me hate you and I dont vote for people I hate.
This is B. Hussein Obama saying that *maybe* he will “consider” following the law and enforcing protection of the border, IF he gets billions of dollars.
AND THAT’S OK WITH THE GOPe !
...should just roll over...
...and nobody knows more about ‘rolling over’ than graham.
So look sympathetic, give the little nippers their first plane ride, and send them home after you scrub them down, give them their shots and give 'em a change of clothes. Maybe some nice T shirts that say "I was given new clothes by a Republican".
Not much more can be done to get these folks to vote for Democrats. It has been done already.
Consider these little waifs managed to get from their home country to assail our borders en masse, (and that somehow, DHS let the bids for care and escorts for the little nippers in January), we know exactly what is going on. Expose the manufacturers of this Anti-American crisis, show them for exactly who and what (traitors and scofflaws) they are.
'Latino' voters who don't want their neighborhoods overrun with MS-13, who want The American Dream for their kids will vote the right way. Otherwise there will just be a bunch more who won't.
There has to be some hidden agenda or plan behind this.
Nobody, but Nobody, but Nobody could be that unmitigatedly STUPID!!!!
I’m as sympathetic as the next person as far as kids who have been abandoned and pretty much sold to coyotes by their parents for an advantage-that is clearly child abuse.
But no matter what Ms. Mair chooses to believe, the majority of those “kids” aren’t eating from bottles and wearing diapers-they are 14-17 year old MS13 members, complete with gang tats-yeah, we really need more of those in our cities...
If I were king, I’d put every border patrol, local sheriff’s department, DPS officer, and as many volunteers as I could find on that border-not 40 miles inside it.
Pick up those mojados-yes, I said mojados-before they get both feet in here, give them water and a sandwich, then put them in nice, comfy vans with A/C, drive them back, let them out at Mexico’s frontier checkpoint and sit there to make sure they keep going in a southerly direction-and I really don’t care if that sounds heartless...
