Skip to comments.Paul Ryan: ‘We don’t want to push people into citizenship’
Posted on 07/18/2013 8:05:45 PM PDT by Nachum
Rep. Paul Ryan said Thursday that Republicans are taking care not to push illegal immigrants to become American citizens as part of any comprehensive immigration reform package.
We dont want to push people into citizenship, Ryan said in an interview with KFYR 550 in Bismarck, N.D.
Ryan said immigrants are more interested in finding jobs than in becoming citizens.
Most people just want to have a legal status so they can work to provide for their families, he said.

Yippee Ki-Yay M*********
And they all want to work in the melon patch —not!
Mr. Ryan, I suggest you back away, turn around, walk the **** away, and never look back.
You are out of mulligans, you stupid, little noob.
Most people just want to have a legal status so they can work to provide for their families, he said.
As to legitimate residents and citizens . . . who cares if illegals want jobs? Let them find them in their own damn countries
This guy is insane.
You would think that after a few years of sampling all of our welfare programs and free health care, and voting in a few elections, that they would already have a thorough enough sample to know if they want to sign up to pay income tax and have dual citizenship.
And I once thought you were one of the good guys.
It would be nice if Ryan would talk about how to assure illegals can’t come here and get on welfare benefits, but of course we know that will never happen. The Detroit of today is the California of tomorrow.
Even that clown Joe Biden made him look like a wuss in their debate.
I couldn’t take more after he started talking about “bean” in the debate. It was so corny and made him look like a wuss.
This immigration thing makes me never ever won’t to see him on a national ticket again. If he keeps the BS up, I wouldn’t care if another demo replaces him because he’s becoming part of the problem.
It would save BILLIONS in handouts, but business interests (the ones who push Amnesty and "Los Freebies" will get their Amnesty approved and continue using the cheap labor, with their Benefits being funded by Taxpayers, as usual).
We need to put bounties on Illegals, and that would sure solve the issue.
Paul, you are trying to obfuscate the issue.
You’re dead to me, and when the letters start bombarding me for money, I am going to send them back but not with money in them. A short note in every letter I get.
By all means, let's not FORCE anything on the criminals, those poor dear victims of our open border, anything-goes policies. Goodness, we wouldn't want them to worry that they have to **gasp** pay for some of the services we offer (which in fairness should be completely FREE to them): health care, medicine, education, housing, etc.
My gawd.... what a sorry, sad disappointment that nice boy from Wisconsin has turned out to be.
Dang, what an I-D-I-O-T.
Work to provide for their families, while they get Metro Housing, Medicaid, Food Stamps and send their wages to their families in their mother country.
What a bunch of stupid people there are in office.
Mister Ryan is expected to clarify further upon returning to the home planet.
What a dick. GFY Ryan.
Paul Ryan-—the dems’ most recent used kleenex; soon to be thrown away.
And now Ryan has picked up where Rubio left off, carrying the amnesty battle on behalf of the RAT bastard demoRATs.
SLUSH FUND to La Raza and lefty groups and lawyers, Paul—we KNOW, now. You can drop the act.
It's not only the (D)s. The (R) elites are there also. The "Two-Party Cartel" bought & owned by the same elites determine the show. 98% in CONgress are corrupt.
Both Rubio and Ryan have become the face of the immigration bill for the Republicans. Both are taking (or will take in Ryan’a instance) a beating in their popularity with the base.
Sad thing is, they don’t seem to realize it will sink their political aspirations. We are losing two rising stars in the Republican party.
I liked Mitt but Paul Ryan was a weak weak WEAK choice for VP. The Peter Principle would apply to him. He’s really gone about as far as he’s capable.
I’ll never vote for him or Rubio on a national ticket now. I held my nose and voted for McLame (really against Obama). Ryan weighed down the republican ticket this past election.
That article is chilling. Who the heck are these people and how the heck do they continue to undermine everything!
I am so livid with Ryan, never ever expected him to go so far off the rails.
I have a message for paul ryan. — Get the hell out of here. YOU ARE POLITICALLY FINISHED. YOU MAKE ME PUKE. WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT ILLEGAL STINKING ALIENS UP THERE IN WISCONSIN? YOU JACK ASS ? GO AWAY , I MEAN, GET GONE. NOW.
This is 100% correct. Most illegals do not want citizenship. It is the Democrats that want them to have citizenship.
My great grandfather on my mother’s side fled the famine in Ireland, came to America, joined the Army,fought at Manasses,
Got wounded, Got patched up, fought is a couple more battles, got wounded again, was mustered out, went home to Boston, Joined the National Guard, Fought the Great Boston Fire, became a Citizen, and died at a ripe old age from too much whiskey.
My father’s side were Injuns, so they had their own ideas about illegal immigrants! LOL!
Ryan needs to wake up and realize we don’t want Congress pushing Americans into another amnesty debacle.
The establishment is playing Ryan’s ego like a fiddle.
Well and here I thought all illegal immigrants wanted to get citizenship so that they can vote Democrat.
Gawd, how did we go soooooo wrong on these guys? Either they are really good or we are really naïve and bad at character evaluations?
How about being bi-partisan and both parties pushing them out of the country but letting them come back legally a year later.
And when they can't find jobs, they will join the black underclass and the rest of the Democrat party moocher base and vote Democrat in exchange for "free stuff" handed over to them by their Democrat politicians in exchange for their votes.
Thanks, Paul Ryan, you sick scumbag.
legal immigrants must be flabberghasted to see politicians slobber all over themselves to reward the criminal element
Because they are liars.
We were fooled, conned. Whether or not we continue to allow ourselves to be lied to when we know we are being lied to is going to be the test.
And it is a pass or fail test.
I think that our government is lying to us to an extent that we cannot even begin to fathom.
I think we are deep, serious danger.
??? I was looking for some direct quotes from Ryan that contradict this (Ryan saying that illegals must have citizenship), but most of the articles say things like he is "working behind the scenes" or quote hearsay from characters such as Gutierrez. I listened to the Levin interview but didn't hear anything about citizenship vs. legalization.
"Paul Ryan says we cannot have a permanent underclass of Americans, that there needs to be a pathway to citizenship," says Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., who has been working relentlessly on immigration legislation. "He is my guiding light. I know I get him in trouble every time I say it."
Maybe Ryan is reacting to blowback? Did Gutierrez lie about Ryan?
like some smarter leftists he understands that illegals don’t want to be citizens, the last thing they want to do is draw the attention of any gov’t to themselves. they are after all the definition of lawless people.
they just want all the benefits (free access to jobs, free access to welfare, free access to education, etc.) of being here with none of the responsiblity of citizenship (taxes, becoming American, etc.)
most won’t come forward even if they are given gold plated amnesty. they just call their friends and family in mexico and say come on in. the won’t do anything to you.
how ryan can call himself a catholic and take such an immoral position is beyond me.
Oh, Don’t worry, you won’t.
They didn’t come here for citizenship.
But it's perfectly acceptable to allow them to push us into supporting them and paying for the results of their criminal activity?
What's wrong with this picture?
I prefer deporting them all, no matter how long it takes.
They can soil our nest, but have simultaneous disdain for our culture.
what's wrong with that picture?
Ryan, you are an IDIOT.
Rand Paul was using this terminology months ago, and some others too.
They explain that the wait time makes the amnesty ‘unspecial’ because they must ‘get on back of the line’ when they wait that probation period.
So do real Americans..... and immigtants here that played by the voluminous rules (THOUGHTFULLY DETAILED BY TENNESSEE NANA ELSEWHERE).
Ryan's stupidity is beyond belief....he actually believes this bullcocky.
Ryan compounded his stupidity by his sap-happy claim that reform would "take them out of the shadows, so that they can give us their real identities."
MEMO TO RYAN your sap-happy faith in human nature will not be rewarded---especially by the conniving primitive invaders sucking off taxpayers.
Using multiple identities is v-e-r-y profitable.
<><> one latino illegal (one who got caught) scammed UI for some $3.4 MILLION.
<><> The Washington state latino rapist had some 30 identities---all riding the US gravy train.
<><> $43 million IRS refunds were sent to one address---that's about 37,000 fake ids---just at one address.
HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY COME OUT OF THE SHADOWS--they already have multiple faked ID's to get drivers' licenses under different names....which also allows them to vote under different names....and collect US freebies under different names.
1. legalization forces them to get drivers' licenses under their real names.
2. state computers run a photo-match check to see if the same person has applied under different names.
3. they get investigated for ID theft and have to answer to a judge.
4. they get prosecuted under US law.
END OF STORY Ryan still fronts for legalization---with his cock and bull story about enabling illegals "to happily come out of the shadows w/ real identities."
Makes you wonder what else Gutierrez has been feeding his lapdog about this atrocious bill.
Yeah Ryan we don’t want to insult them by making them become citizens. Smoke mirrors and bull Shiite to feed the line of crap that they won’t vote. Well if they won’t vote and don’t want to be citizens they are only here to steal jobs. Send them packing!
Ryan is a lost cause. He’s on the side of the elite, social corporatists.
