Skip to comments.Boehner’s Immigration Cojones
Posted on 01/04/2014 5:41:31 AM PST by raybbr
House Republicans are quietly making progress on overhauling the nations broken immigration system, boosting hopes that a deal might be reached in Congress this year. Despite the corrosive partisanship that has stymied congressional action in most areas, five bills attacking various components of reform have already been voted out of committee, with others in the works, confounding naysayers who said reform was dead when the House refused to take up a Senate bill that passed with strong bipartisan support early last summer.
If what we hear is as good as it sounds, its the makings of a deal, says Frank Sharry, founder and executive director of Americas Voice, a pro-immigration group.
A letter to Boehner urging no action on immigration reform circulated by Texas Rep. Steve Stockman reportedly got fewer than 20 signatures. The Hell No caucus might not be quite so strong, says Sharry. If the newfound energy for reform can withstand the assault sure to come from the right, the politics of 2014 could look very different from what had been predicted.

Total, unmitigated failure as a leader.
Surrender your principles is his motto.
I support immigration reform in 2014 - it is a must - and this what I support:
#1 is seal both north and south borders from illegal entry.
#2 remove all Obama restrictions on the Border Patrol and allow them to do their jobs.
#3. All Immigration judges are to order immediate deportation of all illegal aliens charged with crimes - all crimes.
#4. Pass legislation forbidding illegal aliens from accessing any and all welfare benefits derived from federal funds. (ditto - education)
#5. strictly enforce the law prohibiting employers from hiring illegal aliens.
#6. Pass stringent laws denying citizenship to children born of two non-citizens (legal or illegal) The Constitution does so state this but has been misinterpreted over the years per some(many?)constitutional scholars.
With the above in place self-deportation will take place. This is real immigration reform
This I support and no more!
Two step process on immigration:
1). Secure the borders (Use the DMZ in North Korea as a reference on how to do it).
2). Give all illegal immigrants 30 days to get out of the country and then use the legal process to get back in.
Anyone caught that’s illegal after the 30 days will be shot on sight.
More Soros media propaganda from the Daily Coomie Beast meant to wear down the opposition and get us to give up!
That is the K street and Soros media strategy !
Flood the Obama media oulets with storiesxlike this that its Over , Give Up, Live with it!
this Soros media pr crap has no reporter listed because it was written by K street/ soros and is a Pack of Lies full of half truth and false rumours .
Its the drip drip drip Obama media strategy !
Fight Amnesty and ignore the propaganda
I cannot wait for that POS to say that O care can be repaired.
Remember - we have two issues to fight, not one.
And current legal immigration.
We create 1 million new citizens each year.
80% of them will vote for the Democrat Party.
Massive LEGAL immigration must be stopped - today.
If we fail, the Democrats will take permanent control of the Congress, the White House, and the Supreme Court.
Shouldn’t the second word in the subject be “imaginary”?
People in OH again demonstrate their total failure in political choices. They haven’t had many good ones since John Ashbrook; though I understand there is a Jim Jordan who is very good.
Good point, but remember the failed GWB also put restrictions on the Border Patrol.
Most Americans wouldn’t know a sellout until the check stops coming.
“House Republicans are quietly making progress on overhauling the nations broken immigration system”
Someone has to accept the premise I do not it ain’t broken so don’t fix it. What’s broken is the congress, and it definitely needs fixin.
Why does the article assume that his cojones are muy grande?
That’s reform I can support.
They've been sequestered quite snugly with all the other GOP cojones lo these many years.
According to a July report from the Associated Press Donna Cassata titled Dems pin immigration hopes on GOP's Ryan, Democrats from President Obama to Gutierrez noted they were relying on Ryan to fulfill their amnesty agenda. Paul Ryan says we cannot have a permanent underclass of Americans, that there needs to be a pathway to citizenship, Gutierrez said, as the AP quoted him...(Excerpt) Read more at breitbart.com ...
SENATE AMNESTY BILL ATROCITIES
Gee, I bet struggling Americans can't wait to:
<><> (1) handover an endless $100 million per year slush fund to La Raza,
<><> (2) stand idly by and watch the US justice system corrrupted by latinos elected to US govt offices....allowed to commit crimes w/ complete impunity, absolved by the sap-happy Senate bill, and,
<><> (3) watch the invaders takeback the SW....on our dime.
DEMOCRAT STRAIGHT PATYY-LINE VOTES----PARTY LOYALTY LOCKSTEPPING NOT SEEN SINCE 1940'S ERA Europe
Add amnesty to stupid Dems "straight party-line votes" after their historic party-line vote for the lovely Obamacare.
Now the ossified Demons want to force-feed America an immigration system that chauffers across the border foreign terrorists and mass murderers to suck-off the backs of we, the people .........
........we struggling hard-working citizenry already burdened with the costs of Boobamba's cockamamie Marxism......
THE DNC is lying in wait at the border w/ voter registration forms.....ready to register US govt parasites, welfare breeders, terrorists, mass murderers, and other mental defectives, strolling into the US---using multiple identities, falsified documents, and stolen SS nos.
MEMO TO BOOBAMBA Americans WILL NOT be forced to finance our own destruction.
THEY KNOW WHAT THEY CAN DO W/ THEIR STINKING AGIT-PROP Americans are being bombarded w/ agit-prop from Third World political pressure groups. ......Mexico and the Third World are pushing North at a a furious pace--can't wait to get their greedy hands on US foreign aid and take back the Southwest.
The Third World's so-called "fleeing to the safety of the US" is nothing more than an invasion of America-hating foreigners pushing their Third World agenda----vile, repugnant "ethnic solidarity" rearing its ugly head.
Keep in mind, these scam artists, terrorists, mass murderers and mental defectives are intent on building a Third World on US soil using our tax dollars---they want to relegate born-Americans to third class status......
That ain't gonna happen.
THIRD WORLD'S GOT B-I-G PLANS---AMNESTY IS ONLY THE BEGINNING: Mmmmmmm.....I just about lost count of the number of times US Cong Gutierrez (Dimwit tool of the Third World) said "we have the votes to pass amnesty." (cackle)
"Once Congress approves an immigration increase, minorities should demand more, said Cong Gutierrez (Dim-Third World), a leading advocate of the Senate bill giveaway.
The next day after we pass it, you know were not going to be satisfied, were going to come back, he said. Were going to have a civil rights act, were going to have a voting rights act Nobody is leaving this fight once we conclude this first chapter, he said.
"Hopefully, in 30 years, [we] can bring immigrants
from all over the world, Gutierrez said.
Muy pequeno. John is weeping once again.
He's not stupid. He works for his masters, and it isn't the American people.
Worked for Obamacare. Congress does nothing to stop the takeover, even help the tyrants, and the people learn to "live with it."
Each compromise, big or small, advances the leftist agenda and erodes the Constitution a little more.
A compromise means democrats gain something they want and republicans give up something.
"In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit."
Exactly! Along with Lyin' Paul Ryan, et al, they support illegals getting welfare over retirement benefits for our military!
They use Alinsky tactics against their base, rather than standing in opposition to the attempted socialist transformation of America.
One party two names proof that 52% of the people are to stupid to vote.
Traitors always do their work “quietly.”
To hell with the GOP.
Actually , obamacare created
the tea party revolt and people are fighting mad so don’t buy into the Soros K street pr blitz
“Can Boner be so stupid as to not realize what we all see?”
“He’s not stupid. He works for his masters, and it isn’t the American people.”
Boehner has gotten the payoff from the Chamber of Commerce, Microsoft, Google, FaceBook, the Restaurant Association, etc., all via K Street lobbyists. THOSE, not conservatives, are his constituents.
Boehner has cojones ? Who knew !
The only thing I hate worse than a Republican is a Democrat.
Boner is not a failure as a party leader. To push legislation through the House that the controlling party's voting base as well as a vast majority of Americans vehemently opposes is quite an accomplishment.
We don't need to overhaul the system. We don't need a deal.
We need some Congressmen with COJONES that are not afraid to vigorously enforce existing immigration law.
I wasn’t aware - I do know a few retired BP and they all say good things about GWB
Pushing is not leadership
Accomplishing and finishing is definition of success
He has not done that
All the bills so far are going to be stopped by Reid and Obama.
Most illegals already get amnesty from Obama, Reid wants freebies.
