Skip to comments.Tea Party groups ramp up fight against immigration bill, as August recess looms
Posted on 07/04/2013 12:08:42 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
After spending weeks dealing with the fallout from the IRS targeting scandal, Tea Party groups are starting to focus their energy on the immigration bill -- a development that could imperil President Obama's hopes for a speedy approval.
Before adjourning for the Fourth of July holiday break, the Senate easily approved its version of the legislation. The bill now rests with the House, where Republicans say they will take up their own version. Obama, during his Africa trip, called on the House to "get this done" before the August recess.
But House lawmakers already are hearing conservative calls to slow things down. And if the debate leaks into August -- when Congress takes a nearly month-long recess -- the prospects could get even more wobbly. The Tea Party, during the 2009 August recess, famously helped stall ObamaCare by storming town hall meetings and other events.
Tea Party groups may be preparing to again mount demonstrations during the summer break. And even if the House passes a bill this month, it's unlikely the two chambers would be able to agree on a unified piece of legislation by August -- leaving the work unfinished going into recess.
While Tea Partiers await that opening, they're already beginning to stir the pot.

The real horrors of this amnesty bill are the republicans in the senate who voted for it. Wanna try something fun? - See if you can find any mention of who they are are. We all know about Rubio, McCain and Graham, but can you name the other 13?
The media is working hard to shield them in every story I’ve found.
The Tea Party and Palin are the only influences that can salvage 2014 as far as I’m concerned.
Most of the people who backed, voted for and supported Obamacare are still in office.
If the Tea Party stopped gun control in the Senate, why didn’t they stop Amnesty?
Is she the blonde Fox news commentator? If so, I think she’s an intelligent, no nonsense, real deal conservative. I’ve seen her get frustrated with O’Reilly (I am too that’s why I haven’t watched his show in years.)
The process must not slow, it must stop.
If Boehner gets a bill out of the House, Obama will end up signing amnesty after the legislative process is over.
NO HOUSE BILL ON IMMIGRATION WHATSOVER OR ELSE......
Every single democrat senator voted for this country killing Amnesty bill. every single democrat senator and congressman voted for obamacare. the more tyranical the bill the more democrats vote for it
” Were sure going to try our best here, beginning with an active push tomorrow to contact all of our US Representatives and Speaker Boehner to tell each to KILL the Senates Bill.”
On it. Have 4 friends doing it too. ALL day.
Send them a pocket copy of the Constitution with a note "Read this before voting".
Went channel surfing yesterday and was briefly on PBS—Not my favorite channel except for Antiques Roadshow.
They were interviewing a man who runs a group on the east coast where he tries to move kids who are quitting school early to get back into a GED program, etc, and find something useful they can do.
One of the experts they interviewed stated that a young black- either gender- who has:
Quit school early-—
Has not got a GED——
ISN’T TRYING to get a GED———
Has never had any kind of even a part time job or summer job-—
Has not learned anything in any kind of vocational class when they were in school-—
Can barely read-—
Can barely write-—
Can barely do any kind of math——
Cannot even properly fill out an employment application-—
Don’t have much chance of ever getting a driver’s license—
Have no skills in talking to anyone more than 5 years older than themselves-———
Have no respect for elders who can pass on instruction & experience-——
IS set up for a lifetime of unemployment or underemployment.
He stated that the unemployment in this group- both genders- is 95%. ONLY 5% of them can get any kind of job.
The young blacks they interviewed who are in this program seems uninterested in actually learning any skills. Many of them stated that since they had to eat- ‘have money’ to buy things—etc—they would just have to resort to crime and TAKE WHAT THEY WANTED.
What a wonderful statement about the 5 generation results of welfare, etc.
These animals are proliferating in the USA in communities of all sizes.
They cannot work—they won’t even try to work—and they are more than willing to assault & rob to get what they think they need.
It was revealed at the tag end of the program that one of the kids they were talking to was awaiting trial for Assault & Robbery. He looked to be about 15 years old. He had pled not guilty and was about to choke the justice system in his area even further.
In 2008 I was a Tancredo supporter, and was frankly a little surprised that he went nowhere. When he dropped out I went to Thompson. When we got down to McStain, Romney and Guliani, I should have known the GOP was through.
Actually, in retrospect, I REALLY should have figured that out in 2000 when we were left with W and McStain.
Mark Levin is right about most things, but he's got a blind spot on this one - we need a Conservative Party.
He was the one person that could have saved our country the USA, by stopping the 3rd world invasion of the USA.
But we all didn't get behind him.
He is running again for governor of Colorado but many conservative don't even know or are chasing other ghosts.
