Posted on 11/13/2013 5:13:32 AM PST by ConservativeInPA
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), one of the most prominent supporters of comprehensive immigration reform in the House of Representatives, wants lawmakers in Congress to stay through Thanksgiving and Christmas to create a pathway to citizenship for all of the country's illegal immigrants.
"I think it's unconscionable that the Congress of the United States is going to go away for Thanksgiving with their families, we're going to go away for Christmas with our families, while our broken immigration system continues to destroy tens of thousands of families, he said on Fusion.

He’s a turkey....go and get stuffed.
Democrats aren't in total control, ala Obamacare, this time!
All the really nasty stuff gets passed the week before Christmas when nobody is looking. Not that the MSM looks anymore. These are nothing but dirty rotten POS of Shiite in congress.
There is that word again, “broken”. What part is broken?
We keep hearing you can’t round up 11 million illegals and deport them. I agree it would be very costly. My recommendation would be to pass a bill giving them 90 days to leave on their own and at the end of the 90 days have an open hunting season. I’m sure they’ll leave.
The part where deportations are supposed to occur. But that is already law. Hmmm, how do you fix that?
Let’s “table” this goofy bill until the unmemploment rates of U. S. CITIZENS return to the much lower rates of G. W. Bush’s presidency.
First, congress and the Fed Government need to assure our current immigration laws are followed. If (and this is a hge if), the most desperate and least educated amongst us is not forced (IE denied Welfare a food stamps) to do the hard work of society (pick crops etc), then a Guest Worker Program should be put in place that does not easily lead to citezenship.
Once and if this system is in place and proved to be working for a number of years, then we can discuss amnesty.....maybe. Thats the way it’s going to work Congressmen Guiterrez.
By the way, I was once very poor. I wored in the fields hoeing weeds and I also worked at canneries sorting tomatoes (I’m white..in case you were wondering). Eventually I worked my way through college etc etc. So, when I’m requesting that desperate people work in the fileds I’m talking about myself, too. This is how how you get a foot hold in society........by working hard.
So, no I don’t feel guilty about asking the least amongst us to do the hard work in the fields. I’m against a Guest Worker Policy on this rationale alone, but most Libreal Americans can’t imagine Americans working in the fields. And, supposedly, the GOP are the snobs.....
Then there's the part about "securing the border" that was supposed to happen as part of the last "amnesty", and never did.
We keep hearing you cant round up 11 million illegals and deport them. I agree it would be very costly.
Hey, they just wasted $600M on a website. It could have been spent on tickets to their homeland.
That sounds like the prayer for the dead.
Once we hit September a chance of a house amnesty reform bill reduced greatly (little time left) then the shutdown and the Obamacare fiasco took over.
A few House Republicans in heavily Hispanic districts are calling for it under pressure, but thats it.
I want to see Rep Gutierrez addressing an empty House chamber every day over the holidays.
The obamacare debacle should spend the end of any Dem legislative efforts till after the midterms. And if we win, after that too.
Also, no one believes anything Obama says so his 'great' oratory skills are useless.
Where’s the FENCE!
No patrolled fence.
The move to pass these immigration reforms is nothing more than a crude attempt to permanently stack the voting deck for the Democrat Party. If this measure passes and a permanent majority of people who care nothing about the founding principles of our nation, and who will vote themselves benefits from the Treasury, is emplaced, our Republic will be lost. There will be no option, other than secession, for preserving the freedoms bequeathed to us by our forefathers .
Distract from the Obamacare disaster by pushing immigration/amnesty.
Panic...... he sees it already fading away
I have to agree. Many US citizen families are being destroyed by the unending flood of illegals from Mexico. Jobs go to the illegals instead of citizens, tax money is squandered on welfare payments to them, they get free healthcare and preferential treatment in education. How many citizen families have been destroyed by murders done by illegals? Drunk driving deaths? Robberies? Identity theft? Drugs?
“while our broken immigration system continues to destroy tens of thousands of families,
Translation - “We need unlimited immigration to to accomplish our mission of total family destruction in the U.S.”
“I think it’s unconscionable that the Congress of the United States is going to go away for Thanksgiving with their families, we’re going to go away for Christmas with our families, while our broken immigration system continues to destroy tens of thousands of families, he said on Fusion
.....and I think it unconscionable that law breakers who entered this country illegally, and currently feast at the public trough at the expense of American taxpayers, are allowed to remain here. Say no to amnesty before they bankrupt us completely!
Kind of trick that gave us the federal reserve....
Maybe folks have learned on Obamacare that pushing un-thought out bills through Congress is a bad idea at any time of the year Rep. Gutierrez....promises made and broken in Obamaland are causing distrust to run high.
I pass gas in your direction rep. gutbomb!
Take away the jobs and welfare and they will self deport in a matter of days. Hell, give them free bus rides from far away states back to Mexico.
Simply increase the penalties for hiring illegal aliens and businesses will stop that practice. Stop all the welfare programs from allowing illegals. Just like taking the bird feeder out of the yard will stop the birds from coming!
But they sure can find all 11 million (more like 50 million) and give them citizenship.
The other dirty secret is that we basically take in most of Mexico’s ghetto population now. How awesome is that for Mexico?
the hill.com reported
EXCERPT Immigration reform is widely seen as dead in this Congress, and the finger-pointing has already started.
Both parties are responsible for the efforts demise.
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), for example, refused pleas from GOP negotiators for a commitment to move the House bill. Republicans could never give Democrats a clear sense of how many GOP lawmakers might support the proposal if it ever reached the floor.
Inside the House Group of Eight, momentum toward a deal slowed as negotiations became bogged down in a dispute over healthcare. By the end of May, the group had lost its self-described conservative hardliner, Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho), who quit despite pleas from top Republicans, including Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), that he stay at the table.
The remaining seven met through the summer, but their moment had passed.
I think Raúl figured that no matter what happened, we werent going to make a deal, said Gutiérrez, one of four House Democrats in the group. When he left, everybody said we were still alive, but I didnt think we were.
The groups collapse after more than four years of talks left the House without a bipartisan immigration proposal to rival the Senate bill that passed in June, and a year after Obamas re-election, the prospects for his top second-term domestic priority are bleak.
Abandoning the legislation in September, Texas Reps. Sam Johnson and John Carter cited a growing lack of trust in the Obama administrations commitment to implementing the law.
So he wants another middle of a holiday eve vote.
4% unemployment rate-awesome.
The Senate bill was another Obamacare like monstrosity, no GOP in House wanted to vote for that as is, only house Dems did.
Obama arrogantly flaunts his ability to pick and choose what laws Justice will enforce and when, so what good is a enforcement deal in a law?
Bad vibes between GOP and Obama after shutdown fight (The one good thing from it). So why give Obama any victory after he called you a terrorist child hostage taker?
Obamacare disaster : why change the subject from that continuing drama?
And time was short to begin with, and Bohner promised to NOT put a bill up wo GOP majority support and he is not known to lie.(I repeatedly said here that he would keep this one)
Lead by example, Congressman. Stay in DeeCee while everybody else goes home to their districts. I’m sure the people in your district won’t mind.
When will this anti-American, pro-illegal-alien loser, guiterrez self-deport?
...”Wheres the FENCE!”...
What fence? I heard that trucks are now driving through unimpeded?
“We keep hearing you cant round up 11 million illegals and deport them. I agree it would be very costly.”
Build a durn Israeli-style wall. Once you catch an illegal, deport them. Might take years, but it doesn’t have to be that costly. When you catch ‘em, deport ‘em!
I saw we deport and charge the cost to the debt against the country they came from.
Much as I hate to admit it----it does seem like Boehner's do-nothing approach was a good one.
B/c the devious Boobamba's would have used Pubbies visibility to their advantage---to change the subject as Boobamba/Care was tanking.
Now they cant blame the flopola O/Care on anybody but themselves-----all of the leeming Dims are taking cover, hoping to save their seats.
It’s dead, Jim. Er...Luis.
They are down to complaining that the GOP made it difficult to make it work with all their opposition, and that they and only they are the adults in the room trying to make it work so we all can have health care, want it or not.
‘Who cares about that 2 to 5% who lost their policies?’
This is for that ‘other’ 95%
Until next year when another 20% to 60% lose theirs too.
That sounds an awful lot like the Nazis excusing the Holacaust b/c "ONLY 6 million died as a result.
here’s a thought Louie; if the criminal illegals in the US respected the rule of law the US wouldn’t have an illegal immigrant problem.
He's awful uppity for a piddly Congressman from the minority party in the House, you would think he believes he's the Speaker or something.
When the same people who assured us that we ‘all’ can keep our plans if we like them now assure us that only a few % will lose them, and most of those will get a better deal, should we believe them?
They didn't mind destroying our 10 thousand year marriage worldwide custom for just the 2 to 5% that are gay.
You see the case of photographer in NM I think who is fined massive amounts of $$$ for refusing to do gay marriage photography layouts? This is what the Civil Rights Act developed into (at the local levels)
