Skip to comments.Boehner: Boost border security before legalizing immigrants (GOP Amnesty sellout is tomorrow 7/10)

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.

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.
