Skip to comments.REPORT: 'GANG OF EIGHT' TO OPPOSE AMENDMENTS TO THEIR IMMIGRATION BILL
Posted on 04/08/2013 4:23:05 PM PDT by plain talk
All the members of the bipartisan Gang of Eight pushing immigration reform in the U.S. Senate will band together to block any efforts by other senators to offer amendments to their legislation once it is introduced, the Washington Post reported on Sunday. In response to Nakamuras article on Monday, Gang of Eight member Sen. Marco Rubios spokesman Alex Conant told Breitbart News that his description of the process being worked on is not correct.

Who do these eight morons represent????? Mexico?
The USA has been gang-of-eight-raped.
I Oppose the entire Gang of 8.
Rubio better hadn’t say we have to pass it so we can read what is in it.
I understand that a bi-partisan compromise is a very difficult thing. Perhaps they think they even have a strong border-closed-first component — its all for naught. Those we are compromising with are intent on creating more “undocumented democrats” by their every move. If border enforcement can be executive-ordered away, what is our remedy?
We are bargaining from weekness. The terrible position of the Republicans that they “were sent here it get things done.”
Up or down vote like Obamacare, that makes me sick...
The country is in pretty sad shape when gangsters write the laws.
these crazies must be defeated
What do you mean “if he screws this up?”
He’s done in my book. I won’t vote for him under any circumstance. Just another politico panderer willing to sell my country for power.
Mexicans are socialists, and they are bringing their brand of socialism with them as they invade our country. And we have a govenment that not only does NOT oppose them, but actively encourages them!
We are so screwed indeed.
The photo below is from the last immigration "reform" gang of guffawing goofballs (2007 I believe) .. what is it about immigration "reform" that does this?
Putting one over on us dummies is a kick? Well we showed 'em last time.
“Hes done in my book. I wont vote for him under any circumstance.”
Yeah, I’m with you. We’re screwed with Rubio and we’re screwed with Hillary. So, it really doesn’t much matter who wins in ‘16.
Rubio is a conservative.
Everybody says so.
He said he was a conservative. People want him to be one. So he is one.
My logic tells me he is frighteningly unknown, but that’s logic. It’s based on true facts, but it’s logic and that’s out of style.
Sonce they are a gang throw them all in prisoin for life!!!
“Rubio is a conservative.”
Only in his own mind!
Not even in his own mind, just in the minds of those desperate beyond reason who want him to be what they want him to be.
It’s no different from what people do with Obama.
But there is no reason to think that Rubio thinks he’s a conservative, or that he even has a working definition of “conservative”.
I'm calling a major BS here. Any committee of Republicans and Demnocrats that includes Juan McNutts and Linda Graham is most assuredly NOT bipartisan.
Rubio simply being "deemed" a conservative for no concrete reason it would not surpise me in the least!!!
Obama’s Ladies In Waiting.
How dare anyone else think they might have anything worthwhile to contribute !!!!
This is sounding more and more like nobamacare II. Something rammed down our throats without knowing what we’re getting into.
I hope the Republicans learned their lesson. Of course they didn’t but I still hope. If they didn’t and the RATS get 11 million more RAT voters, this country is truly done, save CWII.
Can't be good.
Also, let us remember: this is a report citing the Washington Post. And the Washington Post is NOT going to report anything that will encourage conservatives. Their mission is to demoralize us and to boost their Assclown Hero Zero.
"The legislation that the eight senators are working on is only the start of the process; we expect several committee hearings, a full debate, and an open process for other senators to offer amendments, Conant said. Its premature to speculate about what sort of amendments might be offered, but if another senator offers an amendment that improves the legislation consistent with the principles Senator Rubio has outlined, then I would expect members of the group of eight to support it.
That quote is from Rubio's office.
I also went to Rubio's site at senate.gov, and everything I see there confirms the idea that Rubio is for a fair, open, and transparent process.
I think Rubio is the best public face this legislative effort has, and if HE does not go on board with it, then Schumer and McIgnorant and the rest of the clowns know it is dead.
Rubio has been for amnesty from day one. He backed off slightly when there was a conservative backlash. He is now back on the amnesty train but “only if we tighten border security”, NOT.
Gang of Eight
“This gang of” garbage has got to stop.
He’s slimy hack. I have thought so since I first heard him speak. It is so obvious, I am surprised people were fooled by him.
If Graham and McCain are involved...
...and they are not supporting transparency...
...and they are against any amendments to their "perfect" bill...
...then you can bet that the US of A is going to get screwed.
A "delicately crafted" 1500 page immigration bill, my ass.
Bad day to a Marco Rubio Cheerleader
He has always been for Amnesty....before he even got to US Senate
” that Rubio is for a fair, open, and transparent process.”
Except, we don’t need a fair, open and transparent process. It already exists. We need the laws already on our books enforced.
The gang of eight are
Pubs: Rubio, Flake, McCain, Graham
Dems: Durbin, Menedez, Schumer, Bennet
Whatever one thinks about Rubio overall he is liberal on immigration. Therefore the “gang of eight” consists of eight liberals without any conservatives represented
We are screwed. The second I read that the bill could be 1500 pages...can anyone say Obamacare, Stimulus, etc.? We are now finding out ALL the secrets in Obama Care. As for the Stimulus Bill, who knew it had a complete infrastructure to change the Education System tucked in that little cutie?
One can only imagine what they will stick in this wonderfully crafted POS! I also would like to be charitable and say I think Rubio is a nice young man, however, charity begins at home.
Yes, by all means, lets legalize millions of people to drive down wages, add to the unemployment lines and put on the public dole.
I have a strong suspicion that Rubio is well past the IF stage in his Senate career.
Time to melt the lines again Freepers! Shut down the Congressional phone system once again.
Big time. Shut 'er down, just like we did the last time.
1-202-224-3121 Capitol Hill Switchboard.
This makes no sense whatsoever. Something horrible that I don't know about must be brewing. If amnesty is passed, every one of these rinos are TOAST! Yet, they somehow think this is funny. Color me 'confused'!
When they say its for 11 or 12 million they are lying, under existing laws once legalized they will all get to bring in extended families.
This time the guy in the WH doesn’t care. This time the senators don’t care. I think Graham is the only republican who’s up for re-election in 2014.
Just say NO to Amnesty!! Before its too late!!

I can't even remember how long they have used the 12 mil number. It's been decades. We are all about to get bit in the ass. Not that it will matter much but a few of us will at least know how it happened.
How ‘bout a full reading of the 14th. Ya’know, the part where ‘anchor baby’ logic is blown out of the water with the part that reads ‘..and subject to the jurisdiction thereof...’.
Same bunch of jack-wagons that can’t comprehend the ‘shall not be infringed’ part of the 2nd (also up for grabs in D.C.).
Where’s the GOP/RNC bringing up the quotes from Swimmer and Shyster (Oops, Schumer) how the last few amnesties would turn off the spigot and secure the border?
