Posted on 10/25/2013 3:59:26 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
WASHINGTON With immigration re-emerging as the topic of focus in Washington, an unusual coalition of business executives, Republican Party activists and evangelical leaders will descend on Capitol Hill early next week to pressure House Republicans to pass their own legislation.
The debate threatens to create another schism in the Republican Party and to further alienate a major source of campaign contributions; several corporate executives interviewed this week said they were considering withholding donations from lawmakers who get in the way.
The push by conservatives will begin Tuesday morning with a news conference featuring, among others, Al Cardenas, the chairman of the American Conservative Union; Frank Keating, the former Republican governor from Oklahoma who is now president of the American Bankers Association; and Grover Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform.

That doesn't add up to a "conservative coalition". More like a narrow coalition of self-interested pretenders who expect some personal gain by supporting amnesty for illegal aliens.
I am dizzy after reading this article. It is a completely -in-between-the -lines piece and there is so much propaganda it is nauseating.
No wonder New York is in a mess. How can they think, reading this tripe?
Anyone who is supporting ‘immigration reform’ from those groups is NOT now and NEVER has been a conservative. Good old Grover is a mussie loving traitor
Oh broken glass, lesser of two evils FReepers will still vote for them....and b#tch at everyone elsethat doesn’t.
Those aren’t conservatives, they’re Collaborators!
“Conservative Coalition” of George Soros and that leftwing Facebook founder.
What Conservatives? More word games from the Slimes...
say it ain’t so!
It should all be about the 0bamacare meltdown now: It won’t go away — unless they surrender to another topic which can only hurt them. When you are near the opponent’s end zone, do you give the ball to your opponents and back peddle to your own goal post?? and then lay down flat on the ground? and then if so, how can you pretend somehow that you have accomplished or won something??
Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory . . .
A bald faced lie. Ain't none of those folks a conservative if they favor "immigration reform." Ain't nuthin to reform. We already got plenty of laws about this. Just enforce 'em.
Any sumbitch for amnesty is a traitor to this country.I don’t care what they call themselves including the clergy.
Sponsors of lobbying push are:
“Al Cardenas, the chairman of the American Conservative Union; Frank Keating, the former Republican governor from Oklahoma who is now president of the American Bankers Association; and Grover Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform.”
Consider the source: the New York Slimes.
The question to be asked of these conservative “leaders”: WHY would you trust the Clown currently occupying the Oval Office to enforce ANY reasonable law??? WHY?
NOTHING Valerie Jarrett OR her teleprompter-reading lackey has done the last five years gives one reason to believe they have any integrity.
Yeh pass a bill to send them all back to their OWN countries.
So called “conservative” Cardenas, actually endorsed Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio in the Florida primary for Senate, even though he was supposedly Rubio’s mentor. It’s speaks volumens of what has happened to official conservatism in America when we see the ACU led by an amnesty supporter and National Review led by a bunch of metrosexual big government appeasers.

...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]
...will begin Tuesday morning with a news conference featuring, among others, Al Cardenas, the chairman of the American Conservative Union; Frank Keating, the former Republican governor from Oklahoma who is now president of the American Bankers Association; and Grover Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform.
