Skip to comments.Obama to push immigration reform 'day after' budget deal
Posted on 10/16/2013 3:54:00 AM PDT by jimbo123
President Obama vowed Tuesday that he would pursue an immigration reform vote in the House the "day after" Congress reached an agreement to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling.
"Once thats done, you know, the day after -- Im going to be pushing to say, call a vote on immigration reform," Obama told Univision's Los Angeles affiliate. "And if I have to join with other advocates and continue to speak out on that, and keep pushing, Im going to do so because I think its really important for the country. And now is the time to do it."

All the more reason to leave the government shut down; in fact, when he throws down the gauntlet like that, simply announce that all talks are over until the mid-term elections are over next year.
Screw it... shut it down and let it all crash. I’d rather be abandoned and free than have to live in meximolia.
The way things are going, I am not sure I look forward to the mid-term elections.
Collapse the system, you SOB.
Open borders and an ever expanding Federal Leviathan. So what’s the point in even having a Republican Party? Is it to prune around the edges of the Federal plantation?
OBAMA: “. . .I think its really important for the country.”
Yeah, it’s important for the Republic of Mexico.
Hussein going scorched earth on the U.S.
Unemployment in Mexico is around 5%...
Creating one crisis after another, it is what Hussein does best.
You folks on the Southern border get ready for a stampede the likes of which you have never seen.
It seems to be working with a compliant media and an ignorant public. It’s up to Republicans to just say no. It’s up to us to encourage them to do just that. Ryan et al seem to be in a hurry to jump right in to this mess.
Obamacare and Amnesty are the nails in America’s coffin. His legacy in communist circle will be secure.
His opposition is pathetic. And anyone who does oppose him gets maligned by everyone, including, most notably, people who claim to be on the side of the opposition ( ‘conservatives’ and otgerwise opposed to Obama). I cannot believe what I heard from bill Bennett and savage instructing their audience. Bennett said yesterday it was crazy (crazy) to oppose McCain, as he’s on our side
A man who has studied philosophy and debate at the post graduate level instructs ‘in voting, you vote for the most conservative’
This is the learned opposition. He said McCain is 40,70,60 percent right. Can’t find the numbers? But he makes an assertion
I’d like to hear an example of one instance of McCain being right.
They ripped Cruz on the McLaughlin report citing poll numbers
They’re out to discourage. Lots and lots of big money is in play and behind the scenes
Prayer is going to be important.
I suppose Republicans ought to include money for a border fence in the new budget, with NO amnesty until it is completed and we have had seven years with no illegal crossings.
After all, a border fence IS the law.
If you find yourself in a conversation with someone bemoaning their ObamaCare costs take the opportunity to remind them that those costs will be greatly increased with tens of millions of illegals granted amnesty and added to the rolls of freeloading ObamaCare recipients.
We’ge got criminaliens chaining themselves to ICE busses now thanks to this SOB.
Dear mercy, it never ends with him.....but we have been fighting this (illegals) since the Bush
NO MORE IMMIGRATION.
First bring back American jobs.
