Skip to comments.Ryan: Immigrant bill unlikely (Last week's GOP Amnesty Retreat a flop?)
Posted on 02/03/2014 6:24:26 AM PST by jimbo123
Days after House Republicans unveiled a roadmap for an overhaul of the nation's broken immigration system, one of its backers said legislation was unlikely to pass during this election year.
Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) said distrust of President Obama ran so deep in the Republican caucus that he was skeptical the GOP-led House would pass any immigration measure. He said a plan that put security first could only pass if lawmakers believed the administration would enforce it - an unlikely prospect given Republicans' deep opposition to Obama.

I don’t trust any words out of our Republican Quislings.
Ryan had gone over to the dark side, if he ever was on the conservative side to begin with.
Not a strategic victory but a tactical retreat by pro-amnesty.
To Democrats AND Republicans - Figure out ho to keep illegals from steaming in, first.
Well, the House “leadership” certainly flushed themselves out.
Remember the RINO traitors who are responsible for this mess: Rubio, Graham, Boehner, Cantor, Ryan.
Obamacrats Boehner, Cantor and Ryan are now using their leader Obama’s tactic: Always lie to create a distraction for your true intentions.
Byron York thinks the Ryan “walk back” is a head fake to get conservatives to relax.
I won’t discount that. These guys could care less about citizens wants and desires. The illegals are treated as if they were the citizens already, and we were the illegals.
Good news for the patriotic right!! But of course be vigilant always with these Congress critters
Gotta give some credit to Limbaugh, who was out there blowing the whistle loud and hard last week.
And yes, you’d have to be smoking crack at this point to believe that Obama would EVER implement a law as-passed.
Remember this idiot. He has aspirations of running for President.
So, it appears that the GOP has put a delay on their demise.
Not to worry, libs, the GOP will faithfully shoot themselves in every possible bodily organ next year.
And they will die.
And, as far as this conservative cares, good riddance.
Die, GOP, die.
And let those of us with intelligence try to save civilization from the tapeworm libs.
At this point we need to go scorched-earth on these people. That means firing them. I for one could certainly live with a Democrat in Boehner’s seat.
Ryan: “In a special offer to our caucus, this week only we are making available to you the new, improved, drug-resistant gonorrhea; which can be yours for the low-low price of surrendering your fealty to the Republican leadership, which will cost many of you your seats in the upcoming elections!
“But wait! There’s more! If you act right now, we can throw in a whopping case of syphilis, absolutely free! And a limited number of you will get a bonus case of our, not available in stores, genital herpes!
“Operators are standing by... So act now!”
All Hussein has to do is tell Attorney General Eric Holder not to enforce that part of the law that secures the border. Then, Hussein will write an executive order to give those here citizenship with no restrictions. Nothing has been done to him for changing laws and writing executive orders so nothing will be done if he gives them full citizenship with an executive order.
Hussein is a dictator/despot/self appointed King.
More disinformation from Ryan to lull the public to sleep. He wants to reduce the telephone calls and faxes to GOP offices protesting their immigration reform plans.
I'm genuinely sorry as I had much higher hopes for you.
Ryan just wants to stifle/dampen the angry calls from constituents that will/should flood every Rep in Congress saying no immigration bill period. Ryan lies and can’t be trusted.
"Byron York thinks the Ryan walk back is a head fake to get conservatives to relax."
He's spot on. What Ryan wants is to put the issue on the back-burner for awhile... while he secretly works on an updated amnesty proposal that pretends to put all of the supposed enforcement mechanisms within the sole power of the House...
He'll treat us as if we're gullible enough to believe that this is possible (and that the IRS is seriously going to go after poor illegal immigrant families with four kids for those "rigorous fines" for unpaid taxes from years ago...).
Be happy with the bailout/endless spending train that you started, Paul Ryan, and go away, fraud...
They might try again as soon as they think the public isn’t paying attention
It’s time to get the trial lawyers flowing. Permit victims of ID theft to seek redress in a court of law employers that did not utilize diligence in vetting their hires get a day in court.
Limbaugh was the most strident I have heard him in a long time. He repeatedly explained in simple words that immigrants vote Democrat. Why they vote Democrat. Why the children of illegal immigrants (anchor babies) vote Democrat
Why the GOP will never get any love, credit or votes if it goes for an AMNESTY. That only the Democrats will get the credit and votes no matter how much the GOP plays Mr. Nice Guy.
All true of course!!!! All true that Democrats will not implement enforcement provisions in any amnesty bill. It is hard enough to get Republicans to do this. Just look how awful Senate Republicans are and President George W Bush was on border enforcement. You cannot trust anyone in DC on immigration. Life is too good there in the Imperial City, we are seen as peasants to tax and ignore except at election time when they lie to us to get re-elected.
With or without the repubs, like all things since odumbo took office, if he wants amnesty for the illegals, he will get out that often used pen and sign a document saying it be done. End of story.
Simply, odumbo will go around the rubs on this like he has done on everything else, where do they think “odumbocare” came from?
The meeting wasn’t “a flop”.
It was a huge success for conservatives, who don’t want amnesty destroying Republican chances for victory this year.
The only thing about our immigration system that is broken is lack of enforcement.
No... it is based on the reality that not only is obama a liar on every level... he is anti-American and his word is that of a demon.
Byron would know... he is a charter member of the republican progressive cabal.
If the House Republicans were serious (I am just being rhetorical) they would withhold funds from the White House, specifically all the aides, secretaries, cooks, butlers, maids, etc., until Obama started to enforce current immigration law. Moochelle would have Barry on the phone to ICE instantly.
Ryan caught the stoopid disease from hangin with Patty Murray.
That is such a lie, but it's one that can be sold to the base to save their worthless hides from our wrath. The Repukes don't give a damn about enforcement of our immigration laws.
Obama's been making up immigration law by the seat of his pants since he took office, and slapping down any state that tries to do the bare minimum to stop the scourge within their own boundaries, and what have the Republicans done about it? Not a damn thing.
And I agree with Byron York... diversion. It is all about manipulating public opinion for these sick bastards and Ryan is one of the sickest to me.
We are already at war. This is just the cold stage.
