Boehner: 'Vast majority' of House GOP wants to act on immigration; Pelosi points to support from 'Bible folks'
After months of being told to hurry up on immigration, it's time to wait.
House Republicans said they plan to act, but not in haste, after huddling in a closed-door meeting to discuss how to proceed on an immigration bill.
While the chamber intends to proceed on immigration, Speaker John Boehner reiterated on Thursday that the House would not take up the Senate immigration bill that passed last month with bipartisan support. Several House Republicans offered their perspectives on the issue during their meeting, Boehner said, concluding that a vast majority of the conference wants to see a bill passed that addresses border enforcement and the approximately 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.

Just throw the gates open what’s the difference.
Well do it you skunk. And and don’t whine when your base abandons you.
That pansy assed SOB, better damn well remember there are 316 million of us out here, who don’t give a fig what the people in the House think. They work for us, damn it.
Damn you, you commie bastard, Boehner!
Where’s the Fence?
he’s a liar
The source below says there was 184 by the end of June. If there were only 50 through May, June would have to have had 134. That's possible, but I don't think it happened.
According to the police department, there were 184 murders this year through the end of June, compared with 260 in 2012 and 188 in 2011.
How stupid are you Boner? The people you are pandering to will NEVER vote for you. And now neither will the people who you’re sticking your middle finger into their faces.
I am sure that is true.
‘Vast majority’ hate congress, half say its too liberal, half say its too conservative.
‘Vast majority’ hate Obama-care, half say its too liberal, half say its too conservative.
That doesnt tell you what to put in a bill. So what use is this information Bohner?
They are not going to do it. There is not enough time left this year. The bills will still have to go through the committees and amendments and so on.
Plus, the GOP says if Reid goes through with the nuclear threat, the GOP will refuse to pass any legislation in the House until 2015.
Boehner is a spineless punk. I predicted he would fold and he is proving me right.
...Its clear from the conversation we had yesterday that the members do believea vast majority of our members do believethat we have to wrestle with this problem, Boehner told reporters Thursday...
Dear Ms. Boehner.
The vast majority of the CONSTITUENTS of the members ...
1. Support an airtight and full-length physical fence, monitored by Border Patrol, with ROE to arrest, and
2. Do NOT support amnesty for illegal aliens, or the chain immigration, or any of the DEM fine print that you would know about if you ever did your homework, and
3. We will work tirelessly to PRIMARY-OUT all alleged GOPers who go wobbly on the amnesty for illegal alien issue.
Think sleeping/voting giant here.
NO, We don’t!!!!! All Republicans in Congress are now reduced to McCains!
He just playing for time. There is NO bill coming from the House. Not enough time left according to Carl Cameron.
Yes, I think we all pretty much accepted that he’s go wuss on us.
Dirty, rotten S.O.B., traitor liar.
He’s just looking for an excuse to cave and write a separate bill that will go to reconciliation.
It so gross watching these guys play the game. “Acting on immigration” can mean anything. I guess he has to wear a cup to ride the fence as much as he does. Or does he?
A couple families needs to take up residence in Boehner’s house and he can then welcome them into his family if he someday plans to build a fence around his yard. He can feed them, get them medical help, send their kids to college, and even let them vote to decide who should make the decisions in the home.
What about what We the People want? Don’t we matter? Build the damn fence and enforce the immigration laws we’ve already got on the books!!! We don’t need any more laws out of you guys!!!
