Skip to comments.Is Darrell Issa Insane? (Introducing Amnesty bill in House next week)
Posted on 10/24/2013 9:15:58 AM PDT by jimbo123
Politico reports that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) will introduce an immigration bill.
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is planning to release legislation next week that would provide legal status for six years to undocumented immigrants in the United States, he said in an interview Wednesday.
Issa, an influential Republican who leads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, described the legislation as a come-from-the-shadows effort that would allow the government to do a full accounting of those who are in the U.S. illegally. Immigrants in this new status would be able to travel to their native country while on this temporary visa, he said.
And so forth.
Barack Obama desperately wants to pivot to immigration now, to distract the nation from his massive Obamacare disaster and put Republicans who are winning that issue back on the defensive. He also wants to highlight an issue which divides Republicans and gives the so-called mainstream media who are uniformly in favor of comprehensive immigration reform a club to beat Republicans with.

Some one should ask Issa what happens to the illegals after 6 years of legal status? Does he deport them? And what about their offspring?
He’s Muslim —
He is a sellout.
ah yes the devil in the details
not to mention WHERE will the money come from to administer this? who oversees it etc.
ONE point though
legal staus is NOT citizenship
and they should BEVER get citizenship
so I like that Issa is offering a solution that does not give citizenship but will be hard of Dems to criticize
Sadly we conservatives can not win a fight on the hard line of deporting all the illegals even though it is the right thing to do
so this plan is a good way to stop Dems from calling for citizenships for the illegals
More evidence that the special interests who call the shots in DC haven’t lost focus on increasing their H-1B tech workers and maintaining their pool of illegal aliens. They’re also insisting on getting out of the health care business.
Bingo - from the get-go - look at all of his committe “investigations” on Benghazi, IRS, Fast & Furious - nothing goes anywhere. No contempt of Congress, nothing.
He’s a traitor.
Why does Issa bring this up now? To distract from Obama’s disaster, that’s why.
Fast and furious, IRS, Benghazi, all these opportunities have been conducted as soporifics which allowed the media and, sadly, America to sleepwalk through it all. There were so many opportunities in the last five years for the House of Representatives to aggressively conduct hearings in pursuit of its constitutional duty of oversight which just might have changed the course of American fiscal, constitutional, healthcare, and electoral history. But, with Speaker Boehner and committee chairman Issa quietly applying the brakes, not a single opportunity was explored much less exploited. One of the most corrupt administrations in American history has proceeded virtually untouched by any revelation of its misfeasance.
Perhaps the media might consider what might have been the next time they cluck and sigh over the impatience and extremism of the Tea Party.
Immediately brings to mind: live boy/dead girl.
The annual number of H1B visas will DOUBLE under the GOP Amnesty Bill and they can call a “labor emergency” and get even more.
In addition, there’s going to be a new class of work visas created to being in more low-wage invaders. This is in addition the ones already here that will be given the 6 year amnesty deal.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
All of Issa’s investigations have been for the show.
They solved nothing they found out nothing they punished no one. They let Holder slide, they let Hillary slide, they let the IRS slide, and now they let Sebilius slide>
Issa is a front for the Republicans, a façade. A false front while Republicans such as Boehner and others who are enjoying the perks of office, are allowing the Democrats to make us eat crap.
Instead of working on a bill to reward illegals, why doesn’t he deal with the scandals such as Benghazi? It’s been more than a year and we STILL don’t know who allowed four of our citizens to die.
Or were those hearings just designed to entertain and appease the masses?
It’s clear that Issa was running interference for Obama with his hearings while at the same timing drafting Amnesty bills on behalf of Mexico and India.
No He is not insane, neither are the rest of the leadership. They just decided to join in on Obama’a SUICIDE ATTACK on We the People and the United States. Just watch them snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, time and time again.
I’m beginning to think Issa is all bark and no bite. If the Dems were going after a Repub Prez for F&F, they would have indictments by now. Maybe even people in jail. And now he is trying to kiss up to the Zero King?

The GOP-E types were saying they were SOOOO UPSET that the shutdown was “distracting” from the calamitous Obamacare rollout... so now that the rollout disaster IS in the headlines, they themselves want to drop all that and change the subject... change it to amnesty.
Why does Issa bring this up now? To distract from Obamas disaster, thats why.
Actually Democrats started calling for immigration reform on Oct2.
They are the ones trying to change the subject.
Issa, by offering a plan hard for Dems to criticize, is dampening the talks
The reps are getting as bad as the dems anything for a vote.
Also called a retirement plan.
The Repubs should keep their mouths shut and watch the Dems burn.
It is exceedingly clear that most Republicans need to be exorcised from the Party. Either we succeed in removing the backstabbers or we will have to leave.
Issa been an effective false front for the Repub’s. After I watched Gowdy shred Mullen into little pieces, and not get called on to question Lerner and the others, I knew it was theatre. If the GOP was serious, it would be Gowdy or someone like him doing the questioning.
I believe the Republicans are dangling this in front of Obama. They want Obamacare dead. This might be their first trial balloon for a swap.
Of course that is still surrender.
In this era of Chicago politics, my first thought when reading of a Republicans capitulation is-what do ‘have’ on him?

He wants to be Governor or California. Nothing else makes sense. He isn't being "pressured" by business groups. He is worth $300 million - the richest man in Congress. Mark my words - he wants to be Gov Issa.
