GOP Congresswoman: ‘Immigration Is Really a Woman Issue’ (Ros-Lehtinen)
Cybercast News Service ^ | December 5, 2013 - 1:11 PM | Melanie Hunter

Posted on 12/05/2013 7:16:29 PM PST by Olog-hai

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), speaking at a forum on women leadership on Wednesday, said immigration is a woman issue, because the male has either been deported or the father “is not present.”

“I think that folks who have dealt with refugees and immigrant families see how much it impacts women, because so often many times, the male is not there. Either he’s been deported or the dad is not present. And immigration is really a woman issue. It’s a family-centered issue,” Ros-Lehtinen said at the forum sponsored by Politico. …

Is she talking about Illegal immigrants or ghetto blacks.

I don’t think she knows the difference.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,

Does your push for amnesty apply to the couple of hundred thousand illegal aliens from Russia, the approximately half million illegal aliens from Europe, the over one million illegal aliens from Africa, and the millions of illegal aliens from Asia or is this only for “Latinos.” Yeah, thought so.

“Not that there are women issues – I agree with Ann – there are no women issues, but this issue of immigration directly impacts women, and it’s usually the mom and the kids,” she said.

Doesn’t make up for the RINO activity.

And it reminds me of Peter King going after Islamic terrorists in word while supporting their allies the IRA in deed.

Liberal nonsequitur.

George Washington was as impure as any human, but he didn’t compromise on his vision for the country. IOW, he did not fight God. These politicians do. And the results are plain to see.

You’re good at falling to liberal invective when things aren’t going your way. Either Washington or God was what you called the “strawman”, because I mentioned nobody else. And the fact remains that Ros-Lehtinen is not a conservative. Any politician that fights God leads the country down the bad path.

Were you trying to say something else? Please don’t be cryptic and presume I know what you’re saying.

AFAICR, Washington’s dentures were made of different materials (usually metal or ivory), but not wood per the myth.

Your point is perfect and on target, naturally. That’s why the goal posts keep being moved by our fellow freeper, here.

Ros sees the obvious, and more of it in Florida than many other states. She is spot on and it will sell, especially among more informed women voters.

I made the point some time ago that it was the US government who first baited the ever increasing numbers of Mexicans to cross over, for labor interests, while conveniently dumping over our own border law enforcement in the process, and what’s more, we all know it.

Now that it is gotten out of hand, decades later, we think we will round up millions whose very children know no other home but America, and run them out.

It is so never going to happen, but you can not convince a wooden Indian that his foot is on fire. He just has no ability to care.

Either you are being coy (ie disingenuous) or you are ignorant of the meanings of both 'non-sequitur' and 'straw man.' I suspect the latter.

Ros-Lehtinen is rock solid on pro-life issues. That's an issue you could equate with following or fighting God. Only an idiot would equate the immigration/illegal alien issue with that.

That’s like saying Peter King is “rock solid on anti-terrorism issues” while he supports the IRA.

There are lots of nominal Catholics (including nominal clergy) that are also “rock solid on anti-abortion issues” yet are demanding “immigration reform” and other liberal causes. Forgot that breaking one of the commandments is breaking them all? That’s God’s word, and standing up for gays negates the so-called “rock solid” stance against abortion per that word. The endorsement by the LCR says it all, too.

That is just a flat out lie. It is not like that at all. Your example is one of someone who pays lip service to an issue and acts in direct opposition to his words. That is utterly false when applied to Ros-Lehtinen's pro-life stance and record. When you can figure out how to debate without lying out your arse get back to me.

You appear very desperate to defend hypocrisy. The Log Cabin Republicans’ endorsement says enough, never mind the pro-illegal stance in spite of that stance wounding honest Cubans. I don’t have to lie about anything obviously (and did not), especially what’s part of the record and cannot be denied.
Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. — Matthew 5:19

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. — James 2:10
That includes those that hurl false accusations.

Lies can be debunked, if they are indeed lies. By all means, go for it instead of being petulant.

But using the example of Ros-Lehtinen, how can being conservative on one issue yet liberal on several others make one all conservative? To say that it does leads to the logical conclusion that all in the GOP are then conservative save the ones that are totally liberal and are ready to “jump ship” as it were. These are your words, not mine.

That's true. Here it is...

I said "Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is pretty conservative for the most part."

Not "all conservative." Now you've been proved with absolute evidence to be a liar. Worse you seem utterly incapable of telling the truth at all. Reminds me of someone. Someone well versed in the Alinsky tactics you keep employing here.

There is no such thing as “conservative for the most part”. Goes back to those Bible verses that you insist on ignoring.

You’re defending a RINO. That’s all that needs to be said. Satan quotes scripture out of context (like when he used Psalm 91:12 in Matthew 4:6 and Luke 4:9), but the context I provide seems to be frightening you rather than making you think.

It’s politicians that have been nominally “conservative for the most part” (the definition of a RINO) with the little leaven of liberalism starting to leaven the whole lump that have damaged the USA a great deal. And may even deal the fatal blow. This thread is about exactly that problem.

You seem to be a bit confused. I never lied about anything you said. I merely said that it pointed towards a certain logical end, which was not a direct quote from you but my conclusion. Sorry if you thought that to be offensive.

But hey, if you think that being “conservative for the most part” is going to save us in the face of what God is telling us, then cling to that and witness what results. I can only go by God’s own word, and He doesn’t lie.

I never said you said “all conservative”, though. You are mistaking my conclusion about what you said as my misquoting you, but I never did misquote you (which is the definition of lying about something you said). It is more fair to say that you believe I have an incorrect opinion about what you said.

My opinion about the meaninglessness of one allegedly being “pretty conservative for the most part” stands, and you are free to disagree with it at your own peril—but unfortunately, it is also the peril of the country.

Bump

To both of you

When TE went personal you knew he knew he was ill prepared to argue

Mrs Dexter Lehtinen is simply showing she places more priority on her Hispanic self identification than on American cultural integrity and immigration laws

Very very rare is any immigrant group minority that does not prostitute their values and ideal for their DNA kin

And they will outnumber us soon enough

Tonight Mandela is a hero to so called conservatives

In 20 years it might be Hugo Chavez or another Ortega or Castro

And short of violence I’m doubtful we can stop it

If you mean this post, then I certainly apologize for saying “your words” when that was not a direct quote from you.

But here, I was expressing my opinion. But you called my opinion a “lie” when an opinion by its nature cannot be. It is right, though, to say that paying lip service to a single issue is not the same as being consistent with one issue, and I do agree with that; so I will retract that too.

Notwithstanding, I will have to stand against this. We have had too many double agents already.
