Skip to comments.Government focus shifts to immigration reform (Issa to introduce GOP Amnesty bill next week)
Posted on 10/25/2013 7:00:33 AM PDT by jimbo123
Shifting gears from the technical problems of the Affordable Care Act website, President Obama called on Congress to work on an immigration overhaul. The immigration plans of the President have been overshadowed by the government shutdown, and the launch of the new healthcare system. Some Republicans are already announcing their legislation plans.
Re. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) plans to release legislation sometime next week that would provide temporary legal status to undocumented immigrants. His legislation would provide undocumented immigrants six years of legal status in the country, according to a Politico interview.

That’s right Issa you idiot,take the focus off of Obamacare just when it is heating up you a-hole
Those traitors need to get blasted with phone calls right away.
ObamaCare? That's old news.
Quick - Look over here !!
I had such hopes for Issa. What a disappointment.
Now, we can expect the United States entire economy to collapse under the weight of more welfare illegals.
NOTHING good will come of these illegals being here. NOTHING.
Bottom line.....he's doing this for his constituents....(& the country, according to his mouthpiece)
I let him know what I think of this betrayal.
I am deeply disappointed....yet again...
..I held out hope Issa was one of the good guys.....
..and now I believe, like many here at FR, he was simply stonewalling on Benghazi, and all the others etc etc etc.
I'm also deeply disappointed to see Amash' name on this list of 28!
I just did, and got right through to a real person....
Isn’t that the truth!
Issa has destroyed himself.
Amnesty will be the knife that slits America's throat and it will be Boner and the House Republican Leadership that wields it.
While the Dems are self-destructing we vote on Amnesty for illegal aliens, further INCREASING our already 7+ % unemployment rate?
NO MORE IMMIGRATION.
Bring back American jobs first.
Bring back American jobs now.
One wonders whom he works for
Same for all of them
If this goes through it’ll be worse than BO care. And irreversible.
This is where the stereotypical republican greed monster gets his reputation
I called the RNC office yesterday and actually spoke with a young man in the Chairman’s office.
*STOP any amnesty bill intro - How Disgusted we are with this.
*ILLEGAL immigrants should NEVER EVER be allowed to vote OR become citizens. Work here, OK. Vote: NEVER
*Let Obamacare HIT the fan, as it’s JUST getting the attention it deserves, slowly
*STOP McCain, Graham from beating up on fellow Repubs.
*Why are they allowing McCain to be THE GOP spokesman??? WHY? His attack on Cruz/Lee is appalling and might as well switch to the Dem party.
*STOP beating up Tea Party folks - said I was one and start beating up on DEMS.
*Told them I was EXTREMELY disappointed in GOP lack of preserving our constitution !!!!!
*Do NOT forget Benghazi
*Told him I was NOT happy with the GOP at all and I want more conservative ideas
*Told him the old dog GOP need to get OFF the stage and let the younger peeps like Cruz and Lee take charge.
*Told him to DUMP ROVE and those moderate loser candidates that Rove pushes.
*He admitted getting LOTS of calls saying same things.
just more proof that they are all on the same side ....there is no possible way that republicans could be this politically stupid right now.....so, all it tells me is they’re all working together....they are all on the side of we’re in power, so FU ....the GOP E could give a crap about Obamacare and would love to be in the position to run it themselves
0’s goal is simply to tip the dominoes. Who cares if it works? It’s done. NEXT!
At Daniel Webster’s office...(Florida, Republican) one of 28 on the list....the ‘mouthpiece’ said... ‘this is not my area of expertise’... when I asked him pointblank if Webster was supporting Issa’s bill.
Calling Dr Cruz...Dr Cruz please report to the emergency room immediately.
Death to the GOP—now and FOREVER!!!
PING lists ALERT !
It time for us FReepers to request that Senators Cruz (TEXAS) and Lee (Utah), and Rep. Barton (TEXAS) file an INJUNCTION with Justice Scalia of the SCOTUS for a one year and one month delay of further implementation of the failed Mandatory Insurance Tax Federal Law commonly called Obamacare !
If we are to continue to be a Nation of Laws, then this Legal conflict requires resolution by the SCOTUS.
I swear to God. These idiots have no strategic notions. Table this crap after the election, keep the pressure on 0-care.
Talk about lemmings.....
Certainly is hard to believe they are that stupid. Obama says take up amnesty and what does the gop do? Introduce an amnesty bill. Hmmmmm
FUDI x 100
FR members, Both political parties are ready to ram through the Open borders/amnesty immigration bill. No matter who your congressman is, Republican or Democrat, dont think he or she is against it and even if they are Democrat & for it, dont neglect to put pressure on him by calling & writing to say you know this is a bad bill that will further ruin America.
Unrestricted immigration and amnesty for illegals here will add to the taker, free eats masses and far outnumber we few who work & produce. How many useless mouth fools do you want to carry on your back?
The GOP are DEMOCRATS!!. They're trying to get in their digs before being kicked out of office.
I've never seen such subversion in my lifetime, and I thought Carter was bad.
Money before principle....no doubt, LOTS of money.
We can’t afford to allow the GOP and the RATs to turn our country into a cesspool.
When your opponent is failing don’t distract from the show.
The Democrats are failing spectacularly.
Have no fear, Boehner and Issa are here. Their talking about Amnesty is a diversion from the Democrats’ huge huge failure. The centerpiece of their “signature program” is blowing up in their faces, and this is when the Repubs decide to advance the Democrat agenda?
Issa has outed himself as a traitor and a snake. He joins Boehner, McConnell and McCain as confirmed Democrat Operatives.
Anyone finally figure out how killed our ambassador or IRS scandles or all the other still unknown issues? They just follow him along on any issue and he is unwilling to negation on illegals as he was with Obamacare.
I am getting through, this morning, to everyone I call.
After Issa, start with your own Congresscritters....
Nip this in the bud......don't let them obfuscate the train wreck of Obamacare with amnesty kabuki.
GOOD on you!!!
As a Florida resident of many many many years, I was forthright!
I don't have much (if any) hope for him, but still called.
I’m stunned to see Jason CHAFFETZ (R-UT) on the list.
Rubio continues to say that he’s in no mood to help Obama on immigration reform.
I just called and she didn't say that to me!!
I'm also shocked at Chaffetz AND Amash!
Cruz is my last great DC hope....I trust he has the principles he seems to exhibit.----I believe he does!
Rubio has been on Fox News programs. He’s miffed at the Marxist’s arrogance and treatment of the Republicans that caused the shutdown and his refusal to negotiate on delaying the individual mandate, so he said that he is not in the mood to entertain Obama’s immigration reform. He went onto say that he thought the House should frist have its say on immigration reform, before the senate acts -— noting that the gang of 8 in the senate was too cooperative with Obama, when in fact, Obama was not at all cooperative with Republicans when it came to Obamacare.
Yes, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Sarah Palin.
Issa is a snake.
Boehner had better stop him from introducing his traitorous bill.
Don’t believe a word out of Rubio’s mouth. He says one thing in spanish and the exact opposite in English. He’s a despicable liar.
I am not at the place to put any trust in Rubio....we will see what his actions are.
Yes, unfortunately I can’t argue otherwise.
It’s so disappointing to watch our side corrupted.
If they wore working for the American people and if they were interested in reelection or even maintaining or gaining a majority status, that’s what they would do.
I understand your point, but:
Our side is not corrupted. People who say they’re on our side are corrupted.
Take it form a Catholic who’s had to explain this about the Church NOT condoning very bad behavior, rather the corrupted people in it who say they’re Catholic.
I think you’ve got a good point, but there is a dynamic at play that your explanation misses.
We see decent people in our districts. We observe their actions and listen to what they advocate for. Okay, we elect them for office.
Then they go to Washington, D. C. and over a period of time, and we’re not talking all that much time, they morph into something else.
That can’t be seen as anything other than a corruption of our side.
If this corruption were not taking place, we would be getting some things done, making some progress. Instead these fools are acting against our wishes.
I’d love to play it off as these folks not actually ever being on our side. Sad truth is, they very much were on our side at one point.
Well, they’re weak characters, in any case. And they’ll attack strong characters just for bringing out the truth by their side by side comparison.
What they’re going to do to Ted Cruz is not going to surprise me, but I will never pay attention to anything they say against him, as it will not be constructive and 96% of it will be propaganda.
Anyone coattailing on Cruz will be recognizable.
Strong Characters will be recognizable, but they’d better get in there if they can.
