Skip to comments.Boehner spokesman to Obama: Donít mess up immigration effort
Posted on 01/29/2013 10:27:07 PM PST by Red Steel
A spokesman for House Speaker John A. Boehner warned President Obama Tuesday not to derail bipartisan efforts to overhaul immigration laws by pushing more liberal proposals than those under consideration in Congress.
There are a lot of ideas about how best to fix our broken immigration system, spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement, responding to Obamas Las Vegas speech on immigration. Any solution should be a bipartisan one, and we hope the President is careful not to drag the debate to the left and ultimately disrupt the difficult work that is ahead in the House and Senate.

I am afraid the GOPe-Dem coalition will pass this mostrosity
Don’t mess it up or else Boehner may cry!
I hope obama monkeywrenches this thing to hell and gone and I hope the pubs make him eat it when he tries to blame them...and I’ll bet a lot of pubs are hoping the same thing.
How can laws never enforced need to be overhauled?
But this is different. There is no hard deadline in passing amnesty except rushing it through before opposition can take hold.
What you are seeing with Bohner’s comment above and the Rubio comments on Obama’s plan is a deceptive scam to fool Republicans into thinking that they are opposing O while passing his plan.
In fact tonight over on the Dem channel ‘The Last Word’ they were joking about how they (Rubio, McCain, Bohner) have to play this ‘Obama’s plan is unacceptable’ act when the two plans are basically the same, to fool stupid Republicans into not opposing it.
As if Obama would veto a ‘path to voting’ bill that reaches his desk.
“ Ignore the ‘path to voting’ in the bill, keep your eye on the border instead”
If they give illegals the right to vote, even if delayed by a few years in the Rub bill, it is over,
Deficits, taxes, mandates,.... etc fights will be pointless.
Talk about convincing the voters will be meaningless.
We might as well all become Democrats at that point.
And whether illegals come here and personally collect welfare or not is small potatoes.
The key is voting.
Many illegals who are already here (from childhood) will get educations discounted college like here in Maryland and if they get amnesty will pay taxes(government jobs) .
But they will line up and vote for the welfare state and progressive values.
Rubio on Rush today (Tues) said that they will open businesses and ‘understand the cost of government.’
This is very deceptive sweet sounding talk and how they are waging this fight: to convince us that illegals are natural (business owners) conservatives and that they (Rubio, McCain, Bohner) are fighting O on this.
I believe Boehner’s comment is part of ACT ONE from Kabuki Theater.
There’s certainly no doubt that most of the nation’s illegal aliens come from socialist countries and would vote for more of the same. However, I wonder how many would even apply for citizenship. Do they even want to be Americans? I don’t know. It seems like many don’t want to adopt our culture or language, preferring instead to bring their countries here.
Businesses like the cheap labor. How large is our undocumented economy? Are these folks going to pay far more for legal employees? I don’t know. There’s a reason why companies hire illegals and pay them off the books—it’s profitable and undercuts legal competition.
Then you have this secure border nonsense. I read Senator Rubio wants a commission that includes representatives from border states to first certify the border is secure before we get an amnesty. Who will sit on this commission? Will it be composed of equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans? We know where THAT would lead, as the RINOs would join the Dems to certify the border in short order.
There’s no will to enforce current law. We would be fools to believe government will suddenly start enforcing a slew of new laws. They don’t want to round up illegal aliens now. What will they do when millions more sneak in (in spite of the “certified secure” border) after this amnesty. Again, we’d be utter fools to believe them this time. It’s been done before! We KNOW how it turns out.
Wait. Boehner doesn’t know the congress rats are already on exactly the same page as the African communist scumbag?
Drag the debate to the left? WTF?!
There’s no more room on the left!
Most of these early "supporters" of the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF were party to the Communists "spooks".
There's a great volume of history you have to go through to understand this, and it goes back to about 1850.
Read these three articles on one of my earlier post:
It's deep, it's ugly, and most people WILL NOT ... CAN NOT ... accept the truth.
humm, seems to me that the right things to do include the following:
make e-verify mandatory to end employer abuse of slave-wage, illegal immigration. i.e., why not remove the reason illegals come to America? unless of course you actually want them to come.
end the unconstitutional practice of allowing chain migration “citizenship” for the children of illegal immigrant parents. unless you think that anyone in the world has the authority to grant *themselves* citizenship in America through their children?
secure our borders by fully funding and enforcing *existing* immigration law as required of the federal government by the law of the land, The Constitution. unless you couldn’t careless about enforcing the Constitution. but then why would any politician not want to uphold their oath of office?
if you’re really serious about solving the immigration problem, one wonders why you don’t just implement this low hanging fruit. conversely, if you won’t even argue for these three preconditions before making a massive, costly, “comprehensive” effort which doesn’t include these simple things, then i submit that whether republican or democrat, you prove yourself to be an untrustworthy politician pandering for votes at the cost of an existential threat to our nation.
perhaps boehner is so busy salivating at the thought of pandering to all those latinos, that the right things to do just don’t occur to him.
I do know.
Here in Maryland we have been invaded by legal immigrants Koreans the past 10 or so years and they vote Dem, and their kids part of the cool Obama culture vote Dem. Dems recently passed about 7 tax increases here with zero opposition: sales tax, income tax, alcohol and tobacco taxes, gasoline taxes next
Many illegals were brought here as kids and graduate from HS here which is why the ‘pass nothing’ wing of the R party will lose this fight. They will always be see as victims so the Rubio-Obama side will give them the vote, for Dem of course .
I see nothing that shows me that we will do anything but lose from them voting. Sure GWB won some of their votes in 2004, but look at the massive give-away it took (tax cuts plus huge increases in spending) and he still benefited from 9/11, and by 2006 that party was over.
What will candidate Rubio promise them to vote for him in 2016?
I'm sick of this, 2014 needs a house leadership change like a three day old diaper.
Boehner has to be the dumbest a-hole to ever hold that position. He has fallen right into Obama’s trap. Obama laid out a plan so divisive and absurd it is doomed to fail. Of course, that was his intent. Obama’s plan makes the traitor’s plan look reasonable by comparison and that is exactly what he wants.
While Obama and his minions are laughing at Boner and the GOP we citizens are left to mourn or dead country.
Wish Boner showed this much backbone when it concerns American citizens.
Anyone still considering voting for GOP not only is a Liberal...but has many screws loose
They are waiting to collect Social Security. Once legalized they become eligible. Then they can retire to their cesspool of a "home country" and live high on the hog off our children's tax dollars. Also, setting up voting rights to vote free stuff for their bambinos.
I hate these traitors, invaders and quislings...
What exactly is broken about the immigration system? The main problem I see is that the current laws are not being enforced.
The problems with the current laws are never, ever mentioned. First, the law was changed to favor immigrants, putting the benefit to Americans and the United States by immigration has been lost.
Mark Levin pointed out last night how Eugene McCarthy and other liberals said that the US economy can not compete in the world on the basis of importing low cost (low wage) labor. But that's exactly what we're doing.
Allowing 10's of millions of foreigners and foreign governments determine the number of illegal aliens in our country is insane.
Boehner needs to change the template, not embrace it. He's a loser, he doesn't know what battle he's fighting. My suspicion is really that Boehner's on the other side. That he's losing on purpose, because he doesn't agree with conservative/libertarian positions.
All this smoke about Obama disagreeing on border protection is just a scam to get us to line up with Rubio, MCcain and R party leaders by making us think they are fighting Obama.
This is just a scam to change the story on FNC and talk radio aways from the drawbacks of amnesty.
Obama will gladly sign any bill with ‘path to voting ‘ in it.
So I say tell O that ‘path to voting’ is not on the table. Republicans should take that stand and see Dems scream.
Ink’s probably already dry on the bill in the backroom. You can pretty much bet on it.
Exactly, and the GOP is in on the scam just as much as Barry. They claim that they’ve we’ll have border security before we make citizens of 20 million new Democrat voters, but there is nothing in their bill to stop Barry from offering it immediately. Only a commission that can offer a ‘recommendation’—which you know was put in there only to try and fool us.
Boehner has to be the dumbest a-hole to ever hold that position.
He’s simply doing his part to maintain harmony between the free people and the communists. You just gotta give him credit where credit is due.

PARA-MILITARY DEMOCRATS A RELIC OF CIVIL WAR Carpetbaggers---Northern invaders into the South ----were prominent in politics until 1875, but nearly all left under pressure from the Red Shirts and White Liners -----white paramilitary organizations, then-described as "the military arm of the Democratic Party", working openly to violently overthrow Republican rule, using intimidation and assassination to turn Republicans out of office and suppress freedmen's (former slaves) voting.
The Republican sheriff of Yazoo, Mississippi, received a brief flurry of national attention when insurgent white Democrats took over the county government and forced him to flee. (WIKI)
FREEPER ACTION MEMO In 1875, Hiram Revels, a Mississippi Republican--and the first African-American US Senator--wrote to then-Pres Ulysses S. Grant denouncing Northern invaders into the post-Civil War south for manipulating the Black vote for personal benefit, and for keeping alive wartime hatreds. (WIKI)
We need to get someone with integrity----like Cong Allen West (not reelected)----- to write letters to his colleagues, and to the media.
Cong West needs to do the following:
(1) decry the agitation and intimidation tactics being used by latino groups,
(2) expose latinos using hatemongering for personal gain,
(3) emphasize the illegalities WRT threateing the US Congress, and,
(4) precpitate investigations into fraud.
Is Mexico friend or foe?
EXCERPT Scary Times in the Texas Valley: Ask old timers about the WW 11 days in South Texas and youll get assorted stories and tales, enough to fill a book.....South Texas was a hot-bed of conspiracy theories, real and present dangers, and a fear of direct war time threat. Apparently the concerns were not without foundation.
For one, the political climate in neighboring Mexico was extremely volatile. Agents of the German war machine were known to be active throughout Mexico (with the knowledge and consent of the Mexican govt?).
Nazi Germany was the leading importer of Mexican oil, taking just over half of their annual production....... To counter, American oil and gas production in Texas and Louisiana was elevated. Port Isabel's large oil refinery was a shipping point for fuel headed to the war, and was considered a possible target for German U-boat shelling or even a shore scurry. (Hat tip to FReeper Grampa Dave for posting the full article.)
I guess when Texas Gov Perry was honored by Mexico for giveaways to illegals---and when he told nay-saying Rep primary voters we didn't have a heart----he knew n-o-t-h-i-n-g about Texas-Mexico military history (/snix).
Take path to voting off the table and Dems will scream.
All this enforcement talk by Rubio and McCain is to just distract us from the path to voting that Dems demand and these RINOs caved early on.
That Darn Obama doesnt want to protect the borders. Thanks goodness we have Rubia to stand up to him
Offer no freebees and no voting and see how many sign up!
Sure would like to see Rubio's emails, cell phone records, and the like----to see who in the Third World is giving him orders.
The salivating federales see a Pres Rubio as their ticket to untold riches----as the dispenser of US tax dollars. The playbook is already in-place---Rubio hired a neocon for his campaign.
The cunning pukeneos are masters at duping US presidents and blanketing America-hating hellholes with tax dollars.
Vote-crazed pols are concerned only w/ getting entrenched in office, and achieving higher office, on the backs of mainstream Americans-—using MSM Americans for their personal gain.
We have to scare the beejezus out of ‘em-—let the creeps know WE KNOW what they’re up to.
It’s appalling that a few narcissistic pols can corrupt a Nation-—making unconscionable demands on the citizenry.
Allowing law-breakers and foreign countries to exert a stranglehold on a free country is NOT what the Founders intended.
Over at the Voto Latino websight Maria Teresa Kumar is president and she has been on MSNBC praising McCain/Rubio and politely told Ed Schulz not to criticize them on TV for their motives as long as they are working to get more(create) Latino voters, err earned legalization, justice.
Cant their families unite back in the 3rd world nations they came from?
Shut up !!!
Youre making sense...
Let’s face it, this is nothing more than a ‘pandering for votes’ campaign.
El Rushbo has an amendment to this amnesty proposal that would suit me just fine - “withhold voting rights to the illegals for 25 years”.
Yep, that will give them time to establish those businesses that Rubio claims they will create (HA-HA) after they get amnesty, before they vote.
I am not esp a Rush fan but anyone can see that this past election showed that illegals will vote D, not R as McCain and Rubio are hinting at in interviews.
Why else would Dems (O, reid, Pelosi, ..) say their voting rights is the one thing that is non -negotiable if they were not sure they would vote D??
Right on. It’s not about the bleating ... “oh, the humanity of it blah, blah, blah.” It’s 1,000% about getting the votes to keep the Rats in power. The 25 year voting exemption should be non-negotiable for the Pubs to go along with this pipe dream.
