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."

Another reason to keep government shut down. If only it could last three more years...........
He must be bored or trying to bring his ratings up - an interview w WABC in NY (IIRC) yesterday and Univision.
If they aired during the day the non-47% didn’t see it as we were working. That said, I flip channels when he’s on, so wouldn’t have seen/heard it anyway.
He has to try to do that. Time is running out to get a bill that both houses agree on. Holidays coming fast.
House member Lou Gomert R-Texas was on Kelly File (FNC) last night and she asked him if he understood that the House would probably pass a Senate CR that didnt have anything that House Republicans wanted put in it (no Vitter Amendment ) , after the failure to agree on an alternative house bill last night,
Lou responded that the shutdown put off the House working on immigration reform(volley of bills I assume), as a good thing.
It sure looks like the plan is unfolding. Our spoiled brat president is willing to collapse the country. If he can be stopped by congress I think he will resign and prefer a golf retirement in Hawaii. Biden becomes president, Biden appoints Hillary as VP. Ensuring her viability for 2016. Biden wanted an early taste so he got to vacation at Camp David with all his family.
Bill Bennett led a government agency that many conservatives believe is unconstitutional. While he's got a big conservative reputation, I don't take him seriously when he talks about the big picture.
Given how this SOB has treated Congress the last month regarding the budget CR and debt ceiling, he should be rewarding with no immigration reform whatsoever.
He comes out with statements that are jaw dropping for any American, much less someone who calls himself conservative.
Drug czar, right.
Endless pressure; endless crises, Cloward Piven strategy to collapse the system.
This is the Big One. It would cement the WORST aspects of O-Care, not to mention everything leftist and criminal. Gun rights? Finished. Legal voting? No more. Drug trafficking, human trafficking, you name it. Entire counties would be balkanized, and it could even spread into entire states. Checkmate.
I wouldn’t even bother posting anymore if this passes. Nor would I display the Flag. Too risky at that point. We would be done, time to lie low and consider spreading freedom to other nations and salting in freedom concepts with subtely the way communist ‘citizens’ have done it.
Unless their right to vote is actually delayed. But even then, there would be a push to speed it up and race to hispander.
Here comes the final nail in the coffin.
Hidden in that stampede will be al Qaeda terrorists and the most brutal criminal syndicate in the Western World.
He needs a lot more new voter po’ folks cuz his Unaffordable Care is about to wake up about half the taxpayers that voted for the POSresident.
Its a race for time till the next debt ceiling crisis.
[You folks on the Southern border get ready for a stampede the likes of which you have never seen.]
“Hidden in that stampede will be al Qaeda terrorists and the most brutal criminal syndicate in the Western World.”
Exactly Right. And while the TSA feel up all the women, check grandma for bombs, make wheelchair passengers get up and go through the scanner, terrorists walk across the border unfettered carrying anything they want.
“The way things are going, I am not sure I look forward to the mid-term elections.”
I understand, but at some point the only way to go is up.
