Boehner: Boost border security before legalizing immigrants (GOP Amnesty sellout is tomorrow 7/10)
The Hill ^ | 7/7/13 | Russell Berman

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 it’s real clear, from everything that I’ve seen and read over the last couple of weeks, that the American people expect that we’ll have strong border security in place before we begin the process of legalizing and fixing our legal immigration system.”

Talking Points on "Border Security" have been issued.

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.

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?

Boehner feasts and drinks with Obama under the

He is a sellout to any conservative, as he substitutes
procrastination for action.

Bachmann: Boehner will use ‘loophole’ to pass immigration in the House
Daily Caller ^ | June 18, 2013 |

“I don’t think we have a definitive on that yet,” Bachmann said. “I think there’s still a loophole that the speaker might allow himself — that he won’t 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. We’re 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.

So why don’t 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.

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.

None of it matters. They'll do what they want. We The People is strictly a slogan with no underlining meaning at all.

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

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.

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.

The Weeper of the House had better pay attention to rather consistent polling that says Americans want border security and employer verification FIRST, before anything else pertaining to immigration.

If the GOP passes this - no matter which trick Boner uses in conference - they will have written their own suicide note. THE GOP WILL HAVE EXITED STAGE RIGHT, JUST LIKE THE WHIGS. By the time 2016 rolls around - if there are still free elections - there will be a new party to go up against the most evil party this nation has ever known in it's short 237 year history.

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.

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.

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 won’t 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.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3036438/posts

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.

Legalizing illegal immigrants should not be on the table for discussion under any circumstances. The American people need to face the real issue squarely: do we want or need several million more Mexicans working and voting in this country? That's the real question at issue here.

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.
