Skip to comments.The House’s Foolhardy Principles
Posted on 01/31/2014 8:41:48 AM PST by jimbo123
The Republican Standards for Immigration Reform, released today by the party at its congressional retreat, are pretty much what wed been led to expect. They call for more enforcement, increasing legal immigration but orienting it away from family ties, and amnesty.
Theyre really not that different from the Senate Gang of Eights original Bipartisan Framework for Immigration Reform. And look how that turned out.
This document was prepared by Becky Tallent, Gang of Eight member John McCains former chief of staff and manager of his earlier amnesty push with Ted Kennedy. John Boehner recently hired her as an immigration liaison, and her career-long commitment to pushing amnesty and increased immigration must inform the interpretation of any ambiguous language. If it looks like a weasel word, it probably is.
With or without that context, Boehners standards present cause for concern:
The serious problems in our immigration system must be solved, and we are committed to working in a bipartisan manner to solve them. That would be pabulum except that the Gang of Eight also made a big deal of how bipartisan they were. Bipartisanship isnt any good if it means Democratic amnesty supporters teaming up with Republican amnesty supporters to screw the public.

If your House representative is Republican, call his or her office and let the rep. know you are against this reprise of the gang of 8 amnesty bill. Yes, call even if the rep. is a snarky RINO as a volume of calls may make the weasel quake.
We did not want Obamacare, and you Neo-Democrat RINOs gave it to us anyway, and we are the worse for it.
We DO want yall to enforce existing Federal Border Laws.
WE DO NOT WANT IMMIGRATION REFORM ! Yall gave us that in 1986, and we are the worse for it!
Now yall say that we need to cave in this year to Obama on Immigration Reform. Why this perversion to betray us!?
This is the same GEE OH PEE pablum that you Neo-Democrat RINOs have been always been feeding to the gullible, low information voters.
McCain, McConnell, Cornyn, Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan are always waiting for massive support from the Public before they even consider doing a pitched battle with the enemy.
The enemy is yall caving in to Obama! Just enforce existing Border Laws!
Yall go on TV to publicly beat yalls chests, and then reach across the aisle to yalls good friends in order to get something done.
You Neo-Democrat RINOs will never lead, will always wait for a groundswell of Public discontent before risking incurring the wrath of their most dreaded enemy: The Leftstream Media.
Note to all the Congressional RINO leaders: We gave yall in 2010 what yall said yall were waiting for - - - - The Massive TEA Party Rebellion, and yall fought us every step of the way, and are fighting us now more than ever!
We gave yall the support that yall asked for and yall betrayed us!
Betray us once, shame on you. Betray us twice, shame on us!
LEAD, OR GET OUT OF OUR WAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BTW, we have long memories, and just so yall know, RINO SEASON IS NOW OPEN AND THERE ARE NO BAG LIMITS !
The GOP is guarenteeing that a third party will come about as conservatives will not stand for this.
Libs win as the result.
Thank you John Boehner.
