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.

Of course it's low. 50 is about 60-days worth in Chicago.

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.

RE :”Boehner: ‘Vast majority’ of House GOP wants to act on immigration (shortened title)”

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.

From the piece, Ms. John Boehner states...

...“It’s clear from the conversation we had yesterday that the members do believe—a vast majority of our members do believe—that 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.

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.

Boehner will take one for the team, most R's will. The D&R agenda must move forward.

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 economy—including 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:

(http://www.fwd.us/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:

(http://www.americansforaconservativedirection.com/#about)

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 McCain’s 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.

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.

And circumsized the skipper.

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.

I hear those ads from “Americans for a Conservative Direction” ALL DAY LONG. Here’s the funny part: The ads talk about nothing but “border security”, the tightest border security ever. No welfare, no food stamps, no Obamacare, and on and on... So what happens when Americans find out - - and most eventually WILL find out - - it was all a bunch of lies?

The backlash will be awesome.

Of course, I certainly hope that shortly before any vote is taken on amnesty, a genuine conservatibe group will flood the market with one brutal ad calling the bill a pack of lies and exposing it for what it is - - a complete fraud.

i predicted too. this has all been kabuki theater for the conservatives. Boner has orchestrated this whole thing out all along. This was the endgame all along. I knew it, you knew it, most here knew it.

It was just good theater to get conservatives on board and placated, but it fell apart with Rubio lies and and Ryan lies and amnesty first, fence never.

There will be an accounting. The GOP-elite must lose their power and lose their seats. Then grassroots must run real conservatives and to hell with what the RNC says. We must be engaged locally to rid our areas of rinos and gop-elites, and then canvass to find good people from ALL walks of life and business - NOT JUST G-D LAWYERS - and get them in for a couple terms, BUT NOT FOREVER. WE KNOW THE PROBLEM DC HAS ON THOSE THERE “FOREVER”.

Here’s an idea for the GOP-e - why not just enforce the existing immigration laws?? They used to work pretty well when the government enforced them.

Or, is that the problem with them, today?

IMO, the push for “immigration reform” is a push to create a permanent class of low information voters who will always support the left. Why Republicans think they will attract ANY of the illegal invaders is beyond me.

(Methinks the ‘Pubbies should put down their drinks and sleep it off. Maybe tomorrow . . . . . . )
