Posted on 01/28/2014 6:48:52 AM PST by jimbo123
House GOP leaders are expected to push for legalizing millions of undocumented workers
The controversial proposal is reigniting another identity crisis over the future of the GOP. Some on the right have begun to mobilize against House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, with hopes of quashing plans to introduce a series of bills.
Leaders of the House of Representatives are expected to release the principles at their annual retreat later this week in Cambridge, Md. Those principles are likely to include tighter border security, an expanded guest-worker program, additional visas for high-tech workers and legalization for many of those people in the country illegally.
Its the latest signal that the House leadership is taking immigration seriously. Boehner also hired a new aide last month, Rebecca Tallent, whos considered a proponent of legalization. She was the director of immigration policy at the nonprofit Bipartisan Policy Center and also worked for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., one of the proponents of a comprehensive immigration proposal that included a path to citizenship.

Stop catering, to illegal aliens.
Start building back American jobs.
When America’s unemployment rate is BELOW 5%, then we can talk about immigration.
Not one minute before then.
The goal should be to make it easier to immigrate legally, and to make it impossible to immigrate here illegally. Amnesty would wreck the rule of law.
the problem is that emotions and special interests are far to intimately involved in the issue. We’ll probably get amnesty, and it will be the usual government muck up.
At first glance, I thought it read “Toy Republicans...”
Add in some selectivity--education, for example--and the ability to support oneself (or a support guarantee from a legal resident that is enforced). Stop pandering to national or racial interest groups. Eliminate the g-damned immigration lottery!
Immigration Action Alert!
From our friends at the West Suburban Patriots:
Please call Congress Tues. 1/28..
Congress will be in session Mon. & Tues. Then the Republicans will be gone for a retreat Wed.-Fri. (1/29-1/31). During the retreat, they will be planning their strategy on how to PUSH THROUGH IMMIGRATION REFORM. Their plan is to wait until AFTER the primaries (sometime in April) so that members who vote FOR immigration reform will no longer be at risk of having a primary challenger. Instead of focusing on the Obamacare nightmare, the ruined economy & jobs, the IRS scandal, the Benghazi cover-up, etc., they are going to waste precious time on immigration reform! Let Congress know that now is NOT the time to push for immigration reform.
Congress needs to get phone calls from many, many constituents before they go on their retreat on Wednesday. Please share this message. Here are the points to emphasize:
“You’ve abdicated your responsibilities of Congress! We expect you to STOP Obamacare, STOP the IRS from persecuting conservatives & Christians, STOP the coverups of Benghazi and all the other scandals, STOP the EPA from decimating our energy resources, and STOP this lawless regime from continuing to destroy our Republic! Immigration reform is the LAST thing you should be working on right now!”
Please call TODAY. Find the number here:
synonymous. When they start using words like “legalization” they are no longer republicans. They are at best democrats in drag and are traitors to this country
No, the goal should be to drastically reduce legal immigration from the current 1.2 million a year to something approaching 300,000 or less. We should also bring in people with the skills we need and not hundreds of thousands of high school dropouts. The US brings in more legal immigrants every year than the rest of the world combined. Legal immigration is far too easy.
We have just had the two biggest decades of immigration in American history. In 1970, one in 21 was foreign born; today it is one in 8, the highest in 90 years; and within a decade it will be one in 7 the highest in our history.
IMHO, the STATE OF THE OBAMANATION IRON CURTAIN SPEECH tonight will include the following:
* An increase in Federal Wage Control regulation of increased redistribution of taxpayer wealth to the least skilled workers under Obamanation minimum wage control.
* Approval of the XL Pipeline if the evil Republicans will approve of, for an unspecified time, unlimited redistribution of taxpayer wealth as authorized by US President Valerie Jarrett.
* An increase in the total number of illegal alien invaders from Mexico that will receive an increased redistribution of taxpayer wealth and full voting rights.
* An increase in the redistribution of taxpayer wealth given away to the least qualified high school student loan candidates.
* An increase in the redistribution of taxpayer wealth to fund Republican-caused cost overruns to the following essential Obamanation Iron Curtain Programs:
****Obamacare re-education camp style advertising to the Obama-Youth;
****IRS Harassment of the evil Republican enemies of Obamanation;
****NSA spy on your neighbor;
****Benghazi Cover Up hush money to victim witnesses;
****purchase of teleprompters for all Democrat 2014 Federal Candidates;
****purchase of hollow point small arms ammunition for non-military Federal Bureaus;
****and increased manufacturing of Obamanation Barrycades.
* An increase in the redistribution of taxpayer wealth to pay for the cost of the Air Force One trips required after completion of this State of the Obamanation Iron Curtain Speech.
BTW, dont be an evil Republican and oppose the inevitable Obamanation Iron Curtain, MOVE FORWARD!
It has allowed RINO Boehner to keep his job as Obamacrat Speaker of the House, and it can also keep the food stamps flowing to more and more of the lost Middle Class.
Do not try to build the American Dream for yourself, embrace the Obamanation Iron Curtain, MOVE FORWARD!
Quoting Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridges MEChA chapter: The ultimate MECha ideology is the liberation of Aztlan (taking back the SW). Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing (of Americans) would commence: Non-Chicanos (Americans) would have to be expelled opposition groups (that's us) would be quashed because latinos have to keep power.
There was an old cartoon called “Top Cat”, much funnier than the current breed of “Top Republicans”, who are mostly traitors to the U.S. Constitution.
The Stupid Party will then commit political suicide as the GOP base fractures and crumbles.
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."
If the GOP is complicit in this amnesty fiasco, either by taking up the Senate bill or through some piecemeal slight of hand with a series of House bills such as we hear are being cooked up this week, the GOP will cease to exist. It will not survive through the 2016 elections. The people will shun the over-tanned, glad-handing, backslapping quislings and look elsewhere for leaders who actually have the spine for the fight. Make no mistake - to me and many, many others, amnesty is the GOP's Rubicon. Cross it at your electoral peril.
Are you the descendant of immigrants?
We need to scrap the welfare state, or at the very least make it available only to citizens.
The TP caucus should loudly lobby for amendments that would deny application of the law to any illegal who has used a SS# in order to work, those who have been convicted of any crime and those who have operated a motor vehicle without a license. It will force the leftists to resist and to vote against common sense proposals that no normal American could embrace. Gather the video evidence and subsequent votes for campaign ads.
Dear John Boehner,
If you want to perform political suicide on yourself, I urge you not to. But if you decide to, do not take the entire republican party with you. If you want to wear a political suicide vest and immolate yourself, do not take others with you. Legalization is just a step in the 2-step towards amnesty.
And we are not a nation of immigrants since 85% of us were born here. FYI: My wife is an immigrant.
What's the point of your question?
If you are against immigration, reverse your own and your wife’s. Go back to the place the spawned you, otherwise you’re a hypocrite.
Why? Because I want to reduce legal immigration? Immigration to the US is a privilege, not a right. Our immigration policies should serve our national interests. Surely, you are not suggesting that there should be no limits to legal immigration.
And who the Hell are you to tell me to "go back to the place that spawned you." You are a real jerk.
