Skip to comments.Obama: End Shutdown So We Can Pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform (double backstab?)
Posted on 10/12/2013 2:19:42 PM PDT by amnestynone
In his weekly radio address on Saturday, President Barack Obama said the government shutdown needed to end so Congress could work on comprehensive immigration reform. Obama rejected a House Republican proposal that would have re-opened the government and raised the debt-ceiling for six-weeks in return for an agreement on a "framework" on negotiations on more long-term budgetary issues. He said "this Republican shutdown" had to end "because there is so much else we should be focusing our energies on right now" and cited immigration as one of the things the government had to "fix." "Weve got to create more jobs, and kids to educate, and an immigration system to fix," Obama said. Obama has recently said that comprehensive immigration reform was his "number-one priority." On Monday, his administration allowed thousands of pro-amnesty protesters to use the National Mall, which was supposed to be closed due to the shutdown, for their rally. The Obama administration has barricaded other open-air spaces like the World War II Memorial.

Nah. Keep it shut and default. Bambi wants it, give it to him.
if boehner mitch and the rest of the republican “leadership” does this there will be a bucket load less republicans and most likely a new party.
where do i sign up?
I would say Obama now owns the consequences.
Gads you people are tedious.
Sloooow iiiiiiit doooown!
Boner’s 6 week only lift on the debt is the right strategy,,, then maybe another 6 weeks
how did hitler win over millions of peasants....promised them everything...
Time is not on Obama's side.
> Would they dare stab us in the back twice?
Not if they thought they could get away with stabbing us three times.
Clearly an upside to the “shut-down” (which really isn’t).
Energy focused on protecting the badly mis-named “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010” is energy and concentration that is not available for promoting amnesty.
Note to the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut - you ain’t got all that much political capital left.
I wish we could SHUT DOWN our Prissydent Obummer and his nasty wife too. Of all the great people in the country we get stuck with these two jokers!
Oh, well, since you put it like THAT....why didn't you say so before?? [eyeroll]
Only if you were moving too fast for them to get you three or four times!
So he can finish the fundamental transformation of America from a free country to a communist state? No thanks! FUBO!!
Hold the line, House Reps!! Only you can save our free country!! We the people have your backs!!
They have to get this done before the 2014 mid term elections.
It’s a priority for democrats

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.
Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
[but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
I am sooo happy we have a president that supports illegal mexicans who rape 9 month old babies to DEATH and 93 year old grandmothers. Doesn’t that make you feel warm all over?
Don’t forget the ones who booze it up and run down nuns and other assorted citizens!
Happy Happy Happy!
I guess there are enough IGNORANT SLUTS in the con-gress who support it to.
Sorry to you ignorant sluts out there but I don’t want to diss whores.
Why do you congressman support the raping of babies and old women by illegal aliens who broke into this country. I bet if it was your house they broke into and raped to death one of your family members you would think differently, OR WOULD YOU? Sometimes we wonder what it would take.
Or are you just getting PAID too much to care?
A complete collapse of the German economy brought about Hitlers rise to power.
Obama and his evil party are bringing about complete collapse of our economy.
FUBO Who ya going to blame when amnesty and health care for all the illegals really effs things up? He’ll have to increase taxes and the debt limit again to pay for all that. The rest of us will be bankrupt. Throw him out!
Really? Do you think these people are going to get real jobs and pay taxes, after all these years not paying? This is going to get real ugly when they start making demands...
But the wrong question. There is no back stabbing. Obama is looking America right in the eye and stabbing us in the chest.
