Skip to comments.Boehner: Boost border security before legalizing immigrants (GOP Amnesty sellout is tomorrow 7/10)
Posted on 07/09/2013 5:14:19 AM PDT by jimbo123
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday said enhancements in border security must be in place before the process of granting legal status to 11 million illegal immigrants begins, laying down a new marker in the debate over immigration reform.
The House is going to do its own job on developing an immigration bill, Boehner said Monday after an event on the Capitol steps on student loans. But its real clear, from everything that Ive seen and read over the last couple of weeks, that the American people expect that well have strong border security in place before we begin the process of legalizing and fixing our legal immigration system.

But Boehner has now said that "legalization" is the end goal.
Call your REP today and tell them you will hold them responsible for Boehner, Ryan and Cantor's actions if AMNESTY is brought up for a vote in the House.
‘Boost” won’t do it, seal the damned thing!
No vote till true security is achieved.
More Kabuki theater from the pols in DC.
The money is flowing into the House from the Open Border Lobby.
....and then King Baraq I can disregard anything the Congress passes and do what he wants to do. Honestly, could Republicans be any more worthless than Boehner and his fellow liberals?
They don’t need to add border security to any new bill.
They are ALREADY supposed to be securing the border.
Why add a law they are already ignoring to a new bill?
Border Security: YES
Border Security is a GOP-e smoke screen for Legalization.
Boehner feasts and drinks with Obama under the
laughing gaze of al Qaeda/MB.
He is a sellout to any conservative, as he substitutes
procrastination for action.
As if Obama could even be trusted to enforce that.
Bachmann: Boehner will use loophole to pass immigration in the House
Daily Caller ^ | June 18, 2013 |
I dont think we have a definitive on that yet, Bachmann said. I think theres still a loophole that the speaker might allow himself that he wont hold himself to the Hastert rule. In the shorthand, this is what I think is going to happen the very bad bill is going to be in the Senate. Were going to have a Trojan Horse bill that will look very good. It will look like border security in the House. Conservatives will vote for it in the House. Both bills will go to conference committee. The guts will get pulled out of the good bill. Amnesty will get put in. The Senate will pass it. It will go to the House. Nancy Pelosi will deliver all of the Democrat votes and all John Boehner has to do is deliver the committee chairs that hold the gavel.
‘Border Security’ is only a small shiny visible part of what is needed.
What about visa entry/exit tracking? What about interior enforcement? What about having ICE respond to calls from local authorities who pick up people who are here illegally? What about enforcement of deportation orders for politically connected Kenyan aunts? ...
The United States is already obligated by the supreme law of the land, the Constitution, to secure every state against invasion.
We the People cannot allow them to use their own dereliction of duty as an excuse to further destroy our national sovereignty and the rule of law.
Make it clear to your congressman that you consider a single ounce of support for this monstrosity to be a firing offense.
Rove’s “Border Security” charade has been Boehner’s game plan to get Amnesty passed from the get-go.
The republican party is an extension of the democrat party, both support New World Oder fascist government here in America.
Sad thing is we who are against this whole idea are the ones they are going to steal more money from to pay for it all.
“Border security,” the success of which is certified by whom? Janet Napolitano, who claimed three years ago the border is already secure?
So why dont we concoct this plan where we have a quasi open border and anyone with their piggy toes over the line can be here legally...and VOTE.
The bill is so convoluted and unenforceable that the only effects will be that ANYONE in this country is here legally.
“Boost wont do it, seal the damned thing!”
Amen! If Israel can do it—so can we.
Boehner is aptly named - his specialty is slipping it to GOP voters.
To me, Immigration reform necessarily begins ends with an “Inforcible Immigration Policy.” I take this to mean an e-verifcation system in place for employers, National ID cards that can be swiped conatining status (visa holder, guest worker, naturalized citezen.....), social secuirty number, etc. Once we have this in place, I then want to see it work for a few years before I even consider any next steps with the illegals that are already here.
Also, I hate the wehn people say Illegal Immigrants are doing the jobs Americans won’t do. This is BS. Illegals are doing the jobs we don’t ask our own citezens to do. Instead of insisting on people in the lower rungs to working in the fields, we give people them welfare and other free-bees. I’m not saying field work is a life-long career, but its the perfect kind of work for a HS drop-out...until he/she gets his act together. Plus, its a great way to get introduced to work place.
American liberals are snobs...sticking their nose up in the air...and acting like field work is too good for the common American just starting out.
It’s all a sham. Obama will just choose not to enforce the parts of the law he dislikes.
"The United States shall guarantee to every state in the union a republican form of government,
AND SHALL PROTECT EACH OF THEM AGAINST INVASION."
Boehner is a deceitful cowardly traitor
This way they can load the bill up with billions in pork and still take action on a bill that is about #12 on voter priority lists.
I'm so disgusted. We ought to be able to stop paying taxes when the govt stops having anyone who represents us.
Bah. Frack it
Or it will be washed out in conference, or it will be defunded. The ways out of any bill/law are many.
Looks like the amnesty pimps are out in full force.
Screw them all!
Republicans are using “border security” as the Vasoline to pass immigration. What is it with these guys? And we all know that any border security measure would end up as a complete scam with numerous ways and reasons it will NEVER happen.
Why is it that Republican voluntarily - willingly - want to hand Democrats a permanent majority? Why? I simply cannot fathom this.
Boehner is all the evidence anyone should need to realize that the GOP is beyond salvation and undeserving of continuance.
The republicans are just looking for a way to give in without looking totally wimpish.
If they can’t find a way to do that they will just come up with some new words and phrases in an attempt to disguise their surrender.
Notice he said “enhancements” and nothing about the border actually being secure. An “enhancement” could be the addition of one more person.
If you pass this GOP, I will never vote for another of your candidates again.
How does one know that Boehner will betray conservatives?
Everytime he takes a breath
Still, the Republican National Party is a reflection of its dumb primary voters from ME to CA, from AZ to SC.
Exactly. Weasel words from speaker Weasel.
We need to march on DC with pitchforks and torches.
Agreed completely. Not only will they have written their own suicide note, but America’s as well.
And I will never forgive them for that. I will hold that grudge until the day I die.
I will most certainly join another party, and if I have to choose in an election between a dem and a repubic, I will vote dem just to help extinct the pathetic GOP.
If I have to have commmies, then I have to have commies, but I do not have to suffer my own party assisting them and acting as their scapegoat and giving them cover in the middle of the night.
I will vote them out every chance I get.
Barry and his communist Democrats said they were going to destroy the Republican Party. Making the GOOBers part of this treason against America is how they plan to do it.
Any border security bill from the House is a trap. In conference ,they will merge the Senate bill with any border security bill from the House.in conference. people don’t get this.
Tom Tancredo explains
call congress . no bill at all from the House. best thing is for the House to do nothing.
The Tanc knows
“Boost” won’t happen.
And any immigration bill the House sends to the Senate will be marked up into an amnesty bill in reconciliation.
Only chance to stop the Amnesty bill is for the House not to consider any immigration related bill at all.
Michelle Bachman explained it. ANY House bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.
Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway.
Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives wont vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.
Tom Tancredo echos what Michelle Bachmann said.
call congress . no bill at all from the House
and of course boner must not bring the Senate bill for the House to vote on. no senate bill, no border security bill from the House .nothing.
NO AMNESTY, PERIOD.
I hate them all. I won’t join any party and may very well stop participating at all and just sequester myself away for my remaining years and look at albums of a better time.
Boehner, you are a freakin’ scumbag. We already have a law to build a border fence. And the lawless aliens should NEVER be granted any legalization. You are a classic American traitor, worthless to free people. Bob
They just don’t get it. We don’t want 11 million unknowns legalized.
I confess I have thought the same, RC.
I find that I don’t really care that much anymore. I mean, what’s the point of wasting the time and effort it takes to care, when caring and even voting does nothing at all?
Sometimes I think I’d rather just spend the remainder of my time with those whom I love, and catch my ride home on the day it comes.
I don’t really fear death anymore, but I am beginning to fear this place.
