Skip to comments.GOP Rep: Boehner Promised No Conference on Senate Immigration Bill
Posted on 10/16/2013 6:16:27 PM PDT by amnestynone
Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) said on Wednesday at the Heritage Foundation-hosted Conversations with Conservatives press event that House Speaker John Boehner has promised him that the Senates Gang of Eight immigration bill is dead in the House. I very recently had a conversation with the Speaker and if immigration reform moves, its going to move piecemeal, Salmon said in response to a question from Breitbart News. And it will go over one bill at a time and if there is any kind of conference, it will be on specific bills we send over. It will not be on the Gang of Eight bill. While Boehners spokesman Michael Steel has not immediately responded to confirm what Salmon said, if true it means the push for amnesty is dead.

This is even more important than the debt limit. Amnesty and citizenship for tens of millions of invaders means the Republic is dead forever. If it’s not already dead forever.
Forgive Boehner? Uh, no.
The Senate wants the House to send over items pertaining to immigration so they tack the Amnesty clause to it.
SEND THE SENATE NOTHING PERTAINING TO IMMIGRATION. IT AIN’T BROKE, SO IT NEEDS NO FIXIN’.
But only as long as he triple-dog, pinky swears he won’t pull the football away this time, then I suppose, yeah, sure, we can trust him not to cave THIS time ....

...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]
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? That sorry sack of sh!t is a liar!! He promised “No violation of the hastert rule” Have we all got Alzheimer here? what are you watching on tv right now?? The Demorats and RINOs ruining this country because Beohner was WEAK!!Boehner is a liar!! Dump him NOW!! or be dumped! What a crock!
Blue-slip it then, Boehner.
I’ll believe it when I see it.
Liar all! You have proven yourselves today. WE NO LONGER BELIEVE YOU!
“Boehner Promised” — the two words cannot go together and be reality. “Boehner Caved Again” it should read.
And matt Salmon says Boehner says he is not going to do that. If tha tis true that is the end of that.
Correctomundo! The DemonRats will pass ‘THE 15 MILLION NEW DEMOCRAT VOTERS ACT’ the same way they passed 0bamacare into law. The Senate took a House bill and gutted it and slapped a new title on it. Also, cheating, blackmail, bribery, lying, etc..
Why does that phrase always conjure up the image of Lucy, Charlie Brown, and a football?
Speaker John Boehner over the last few weeks has continued to talk about the importance of the House moving forward on immigration reform, McMorris Rodgers said, according to a transcript provided by Univision. I believe that we have a window here between now and the end of the year and that this is a priority. Rep. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers 10/7/13 Politico.com
NO! NO! NO!
This is more trickery!
There must be no action on any bill piecemeal or otherwise because as it has been said countless times:
ANY BILL FROM THE HOUSE WILL BE GUTTED AND INSERTED WITH THE GANG OF 8 PROVISIONS AND THEN SENT BACK TO THE HOUSE FOR CONFERENCE ALLOWING ALL DEMS TO VOTE AND 17 RINOS TO PASS WHAT OBAMA WANTS!
Boehner just caved on the debt deal and ignored the Hastert Rule. He will do the same on the immigration deal.
Get it through your heads!
BOEHNER IS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR!
They ALL are.
Poor Bohner the goat kicked by everyone. Gets to own the surrender, all of them. Just like WWI and Germans and that poor sap sent out to sign the surrender and later murdered.
I actually think the above is true and I kind of did before this, and I am not known here as any Pollyanna.
Perdogg called this first, that the clock would run out and the Senate would get nothing they would accept
And maybe the shutdown fight (with the fail ) was a positive in this amnesty fight. Lost time and hurt feelings kill it.
NOT A ******* INCH YOU **’ERS!
