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.

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.
