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.

BS Boner. BS. Not the way the senate wants to give away the country.
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”.
So I guess the meeting was just to decide how to “trick conservatives”?
You got that right.
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 . . . . . . )
the fix has been in for a while. I think conservatives are wasting time in the GOP e
Those are unregistered democRATs! Boehner knows it too, he just doesn’t care.
why do we even both with this asshoe?
The video shows the total disrespect those foreign criminals have for American laws.
They advocate “strategic fencing”
If anyone posting on this thread has EVER cast a single vote FOR:
George W Bush
This is YOUR DOING: Stupid.
Have you learned yet?
I doubt it. You will be voting FOR Rubio because he was right and we can win the Hispanic Vote now.
Then you will be saying Madam President when Hillary crushes him in a landslide.
Fool. Fool. Fool.
That’s a great solution you have there.
Their whole schtick is a strategic con job.
I did not POST my solution in that. Thanks for being so sarcastic and stupid.
But if you WANT to see my Answer:
I am removing this mother trucker from Congress.
I promise you, he will NOT be Speaker in 2015.
What are YOU doing?
We need to identify the pro-amnesty leaders, organizations, and foot soldiers. They must be defeated.
We need to identify the issues essential to dismantling their power structures and restoring our Constitution. This might entail repeal of Amends. 16 and 17, enforcement of national sovereignty, free markets without monopolies or government subsidy, elimination of the New Deal, Great Society, and the like... the Liberty guaranteed by the Constitution.
The stranglehold of the ruling Democrat-Republican Party must be broken.

Gates are closed already... just don’t look at the big hole in the fence..
