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.

Oh noes, Brigadier Boehner.
It’s a TRAP!
Speaking of "Forward"
Ever hear of FWD.US?
FWD.US is an organization started by key leaders in the tech community to promote policies to keep the United States and its citizens competitive in a global economyincluding comprehensive immigration reform and education reform. (http://www.fwd.us/about_us)
Their list of supporters is a who's who of tech companies. (http://www.fwd.us/our_supporters)
Their team in Washington DC:
FWD.US has two subsidiary organizations, Americans for a Conservative Direction, and Council for American Job Growth. (http://www.nonprofitquarterly.org/policysocial-context/22211-has-zuckerberg-gone-conservative.html)
Americans for a Conservative Direction board members are:
In May FWD.us began running ads the immigration bill pushed by the so-called Senate Gang of 8. Politico reports that Americans for a Conservative Direction will spend over $1 million to push the ad in states including Texas, Florida, Iowa, and Kentucky. (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/05/07/Republican-group-Facebook-immigration-bill)
Another group running ads is the American Action Network. The American Action Network was founded by Fred Malek, National Finance Committee co-chair of John McCains 2008 presidential campaign. AAN created the American Action Forum and the Hispanic Leadership Network. These groups share office space with the Karl Rove affiliated Crossroads GPS/American Crossroads.
These groups have overlapping leadership and membership.

I received a “survey” from Boehner. Guess which issue was missing? But he couldn’t wait to go ask Pelosi what she thought.
You are always one of the most sober opinions around here. Like me you look for bits of truth and reason in what you see, hear and read, to have some idea what is really coming.
We need a US equivalent of the UKIP party. Screw the Republicans.
Good work, Ray76.
“Pelosi points to support from Bible folks”
Nanzi’s a funny little cabin girl.
The Speaker had a cabin girl,
The dirty little nipper.
She stuffed her azz with broken glass
And circumsized the skipper.
Boner. Nanzi. It’s a Moron contest I tells ya ....
We need to identify the leaders, organizations, and foot soldiers. They must be defeated.
Not sure why people are all up in arms over immigration/amnesty. Over and over again we were told to vote for the lesser evil. Well, here is all that lesser evil people demanded here on FR and elsewhere that we vote for. We were told that purists were idiots and traitors if we refused to keep putting people into power that we KNEW were going to do exactly this and more.
Because they have told us they would. Because history showed they have done it all before.
So I just don’t get it. To this very day I see Freepers on threads telling us we must keep voting for the GOP to ‘change it from within. The same mantra we have heard for literally decades.
So unless Freepers want man the hell up and tell these little sycophantic liberal wannabees, both here and in DC to go straight to hell, I do not see anything changing for the better. Wanna know why Bhoner sodomizes his base? Because they like it.
Begin by mounting a primary challenge to Graham! That would be the Krakatoa
Interesting, my FRiend, very interesting.
Constituent feedback on illegal alien amnesty?
Boehner, we really expected nothing more from you — a reliable failure.
Traitor Boehner’s gotta go! A whole passel of damned traitors gotta go!!
(They are) Open Borders GLOBALISTS! (per your post and links) The (D) and (R) doesn’t mean jack to these chucks.
We don’t need no stinking fence, we need Democrat voters. Rubio, Boenhner,etc.
WE WILL ABANDON YOU!!!
More like slash and burn.
Hand and glove...
Why do peeps question Boner? (/rhet)
Boner is such a TEAParty playa. haha.
