Skip to comments.GOP lawmaker to meet with Obama on immigration reform
Posted on 10/28/2013 12:29:23 PM PDT by jimbo123
Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) will meet with President Obama at the White House on Tuesday to discuss immigration reform.
Diaz-Balart is a key House Republican on the issue, and earlier this year had been working with lawmakers from both parties on a comprehensive House bill.
Other lawmakers are also expected to attend the meeting, though the precise guest list is unclear.
Obama has sought to pump up the pressure on Republicans over immigration, and won a small victory this week with Rep. Jeff Denham's (R-Calif.) decision to cosponsor a House immigration reform bill backed by Democrats.

How can you be a “key” if no one has ever heard of you.
Heres is the public Boehner-Cantor-Ryan-Issa-Denham-Diaz-Balart Gang of 28 who will vote with the RATS to pass Amnesty with a path to Citizenship.

For those FReepers who think Republicans don’t try to work with fanatical Democrats, here you go. This effort to compromise with Obama will end with Republicans doing all the compromising, because Democrats don’t compromise, and when Republicans refuse to sign onto Obama’s nonsense, he and all his Obamaphiles will scream about Republicans not working with him.
Wait til these GOP sponsored illegals sign up for ObamaCare subsidies..
Obamacare, welfare, food stamps...
This is what they really want: to continue having no reason for US citizens to learn IT.

Launched in February 2010, American Action Network is a conservative 501(c)(4) group chaired by Norm Coleman, a Republican former senator from Minnesota. The group reported spending more than $18.9 million in the 2010 congressional elections, targeting dozens of Democratic House and Senate candidates. Because it is a 501(c)(4), it is not required to release the names of its donors. American Action shares office space with Crossroads GPS/American Crossroads, one of the largest outside spending networks, which has ties to GOP operative Karl Rove. As a nonprofit organization, it does not disclose the donors to its outside spending efforts.
