Skip to comments.Schumer: Immigration reform possible in 2014 because of Boehner’s tea party break
Posted on 01/05/2014 3:55:14 PM PST by Libloather
For the first time, Speaker Boehner said he wont let the minority of his caucus the tea party minority run the show, Mr. Schumer said Sunday on ABCs This Week with George Stephanopoulos.
The Republican leadership realizes if we dont do immigration and get immigration reform done, it hurts them politically, Mr. Schumer said.

when we start letting a slimeball like schumer set off a civil war, we are doing for the democrats what they can’t do for themselves; giving them a chance to retain the senate.
I got a phone call from the ‘rat party a couple of days ago soliciting funds to fight the boogy-man TEA Party.
Boehner breaks with conservatives to join with Schumer and Reid, helping Democrats anyway he can.
Chucky cannot wait for shamnesty.
More Dems loving on Boehner.
The Dems would give anything for it.
There’s no way they’re getting it.
A solid point. But Chucky is right. I hate ever admitting a Dam is right but he is. Bhoner is well on track to sell out America to Democrat voter reform.
It’s the ugly truth.
When they wake up, the illegals will realize that signing on the dotted line has consequences...like taxes....
I hope he’s getting a reach around.
He left the GOP years ago.
It hurts the GOP politically to open the gate for undocumented Democrats.
*Republican Strategist* and McCain's ‘friend’ Ana Navarro was on ABC This Week AGAIN saying the same thing.
That the new Boehner is going to pass amnesty by ignoring House conservatives.
And why is she a Republican?
Boehner is such a weak leader, and garners such low respect from his own party the Democrats can sit back and through bombs watching the party tear itself apart. Does anyone believe a rumor about Reid pushing a conservative idea would get any traction at all? Still, I don’t think Boehner has whats best for the country at heart, and he will do the Democrats dirty work. At this point I think they are calculating how far to the left they can govern and still hold the house.
But enrolling millions of illegals as Democrat voters after amnesty is going to help the GOP? Is Boehner brain damaged? He is obviously too ignorant to be Speaker.
The GOP-e thinks amnesty will help them win more elections, here is a video of the democrat response:
Not really. Everytine he leads the GOP to yet another cave, he has his little helpers running around right wing websites and media telling the growingly pissed off base that the other guy is worse, lesser evils are needed because conservatives can’t be elected and other garbace like that.
Just read any post on this topic over the last year. You’ll find plenty of exactly what I’m talking about.
So the end result is that Bhoner gets what Obama wants, keeps getting compromising moderates and outright libs elected on the left and America is hosed.
Bhoner deserves a lot of blame. But he’d be powerless without his little helpers convincing people there is no other way but the GOP..
And his little helpers can pack a lunch on proving me wrong. They’ll need it.
Better yet, why am I still registered as one?
Maybe, just maybe John Boehner is playing the full chessboard, thinking ahead by three or four moves, I hope. Maybe he wants to have the Dems commit publicly to certain conditions, then at the last minute, do a “Barack” on them, have pen in hand, smiling and so ready to sign away the GOP, as long as X.....and Y...... conditions are kept without effecting the budget. I know, and maybe there are spiders on Mars! The Boehner Tea Bashing is so enthusiastic, and criticism from the right is so absent, that I’m starting to wonder,, it this all a set up, hoping the house of cards will fall onto the dems, crushing their dreams finally, and not ours again?
When I’m convinced that the US is enforcing its immigration laws for 3-5 years, I might (MIGHT!!!) consider Amnesty for the illegal immigrants. Anything less than that is a surrender to an invading army of Democrat voters. Aren’t Senators (Democrats included) supposed to be all about what’s best for America? Geeze this country got weird somehow. Insisting that the government live within its means is now ‘Radical’, enforcing laws already on the books is mean spirited, and being aagainst Obamacare is racists?......Uhgggg, I need a drink just thinking about the pickle we’re in!!!
Navarro is a big time amnesty shill for the usual GOPe suspects. She is a provocateur hired by Boehner to lay the groundwork.
There cannot be anything dumber than taking advice from UpChuckie.
Yes Mr. Schmucky, everyone knows how you have the best interests of the republican 'leadership' aka the GOPe in mind.
More likely you are blackmailing them; they are compromised.
You are hallucinating.
Any bets on whether there will be any immigration legislation passed out of the house, other than being tied to enforcement, before the election?
Yesterday I attended the local township Republican meeting in which our Congressman, Pete Roskam (IL-9) spoke and took questions for about 20 minutes. For those who don’t know, Pete is the Deputy Whip of the House, so he is right up there in leadership.
The question of amnesty came up and he responded any amnesty bill is dead in the Senate and the House will not move on anything until the border is secured. He added there must be verifiable evidence the border is secured first even if it takes years to do so. He was quite emphatic about that. So we’ll see.
By the way, also in attendance was a candidate to run against Durbin. Young, West Point grad, former Army Ranger, married with three teenagers. A solid guy. He is also a risk consultant in healthcare. His name is Doug Truax. And for you ladies, he is really good looking. He’s not going to be afraid of the slime Durbin will throw at him.
I don’t think it’ll happen either. I think the Republicans will keep saying “We’re open to it” while Obamacare continues to crater. I’d love for them to blue-slip it, but they’ll sit on it until primaries are over. If the TEA Party destroys during primaries, it’s dead.
When you reward something, you get more of it. Rewarding 11 to 20 million lawbreakers who can then sponsor tens of millions of their relatives thru chain migration, i.e., family reunification will destroy this country with the stroke of a pen.
Why would any sane person consider amnesty as a possibility? We had a one time amnesty in 1986. The proponents said this would never happen again and that our illegal immigration problem would be solved. The USG estimated that one million would apply, but the true number turned out to be 2.7 million. So is the USG estimate of 11 million illegal aliens valid or are the numbers far higher?
<><> (1) hands over a perpetual $100 million per year slush fund to La Raza,
<><> (2) allows latinos holding US govt office to commit crimes w/ complete impunity, absolved by the sap-happy Senate bill, and,
<><> (3) finances more and more invaders to take back the SW....on our dime.
LOCK-STEPPING DEMOCRAT PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1940'S ERA Europe Hooray---now we can add the Senate amnesty bill to lock-stepping Dems "straight party-line votes" (includes their historic party-line vote for the lovely Obamacare).
ANOTHER DEMOCRAT GIVEAWAY 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, 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.
Dems are aiding an abetting crimes----financing 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 a hoax---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 ne/xt 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.
"The secretary (of homeland security) may not grant registered provisional immigrant status to an alien under this section unless the alien fully discloses to the secretary all the names and Social Security account numbers that the alien has ever used to obtain employment in the United States," said Grassley's amendment.
Grassley's amendment would not have prohibited illegal aliens from being converted into legal aliens just because they had used names and Social Security numbers that did not belong to them. It would only have required that the illegal aliens make the names and numbers they used known to DHS before they could be granted the right to legally live in the United States.
Grassley said, "Congress should not thumb its nose at the millions of Americans who are victims of identity theft, often perpetrated by an undocumented person who steals Social Security numbers to get jobs, govt benefits, driver's licenses and more. This amendment will simply require the person applying for RPI status to disclose any previously used Social Security numbers," said Grassley. "It's the first step to helping clean up the mess that's been created for the victim of identity theft. The amendment also authorizes certain federal agencies, upon receipt of this information, to notify individuals who were the victims."
ON RECORD AS AIDING AND AETTING FELONIES Dismissing Sen Grassley's proposal, ranking Dem member Sen Schumer said: "When people are living in undocumented status, there are times, I suppose, when they've made up identities, made up Social Security numbers. How are they going to remember all that? (The) purpose of this bill is to bring people out of the shadows. We all know when they lived in the shadows, they had to forge documents, forge Social Security numbers, et cetera. I just don't see how, when you've lived here 10 years, and you've had many different identities, many different numbers, you're going to remember them all," said Schumer.
LOCKSTEPPING DEMS VOTE (all that was missing was the salute) The Senate Judiciary committee defeated Grassley's amendment 8 to 10 on a lock-stepping straight Dem party-line vote.
"Those Democrats leering over my shoulder owe me bigtime. This
healthcare bill insures we have a permanent Democratic majority."
"Everybody but those Tea Party types, swallowed hook, line and sinker my promises that they could:
(1) keep their existing health plans,
(2) keep their own doctors that they like,
(3) keep their 25-year-olds on the family health plan,
(4) never be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition,
(5) sign up instantly on my tech-savvy government Web site,
(6) buy insurance only after becoming seriously ill."
(7) save $2,500 in annual premiums in the bargain....
(8) All without any new taxes."
"Them sonovagun Tea Partiers will rue the day they criticized my wonderful bill...and opposed amnesty."
The 11 to 20 million lawbreakers will be able to sponsor tens of millions more legal immigrants thru chain migration, i.e., family reunification.
Yeah, Chuck-U-Schumer cares about what happens to the political fortunes of the GOP-not.
