Boehner’s Immigration Blunder
POLITISITE.com ^ | 3 February 2014 | Colonel Steven B. Vitali USMC (Ret)

Posted on 02/03/2014 8:48:56 AM PST by Col Vit

Against the rising gale sweeping towards a Republican surge in the upcoming 2014 Congressional elections, House Speaker Boehner boldly disregards the wide sentiment of the American people against the promulgation of an amnesty bill this year. Speaker Boehner proudly put forth a set of immigration principles, a fig leaf presentation to pave the road to amnesty for illegal immigrants.

In Republican country, the reception of Boehner’s amnesty embrace and his “go-it-alone” strategy during a pivotal election season rankles deep within the Republican Party and specifically questions his ability to continue as the Speaker of the House. His unconscionable decision is especially detrimentally significant since recent national polls indicated only 3% of the American population would support Congressional immigration legislation this year.

Americans are under siege by a stagnant economy; a rapidly rising national debt; abusive regulations; over taxation; a carnivorous government; and most of all, a palpable fear of Obamacare that impacts on the health and wealth of all American families. These are the great issues defined today that hinders American prosperity and liberty. Americans are also rightfully concerned over the security of the American borders and anguish at an administration and Department of Justice whose inept immigration enforcement policies appear to green light an “Open Borders” strategy to benefit future Democrats running in national elections.

Boehner’s folly to move on a path of citizenship without border security is inexcusable. Without real border security, Boehner’s proposition ensures a repeat flood of illegal immigrants surging across our porous borders. A path to citizenship will only be viable when and if our national borders become verifiably secure. As long as Obama remains in office, our borders will never be secured.

Historically, America is home to the underpinning of liberty, individualism, patriotism, exceptionalism, and entrepreneurism that drew to America the fancies and aspirations of legal immigrants from the far corners of the globe. Legal immigrants patiently waited in line and learned our standards to become American citizens. Their dream of becoming an American was built on their hope and desire to assimilate into the fabric of the American society.

Today, America increasingly is faced with a different immigration dilemma; illegal immigration. Of note, it is reported that only 50% of Illegal immigrants express a desire to learn and cultivate American history, values, traditions, and language. A number of illegal immigrants who crossed our borders and broke American laws did so only for monetary gain and openly display their allegiance to their ancestral home. America is a composite of a multitude of immigrants from all nationalities and the seal that binds us is our desire to assimilate into the fabric of an American society. Some Illegal immigrants possess no desire or willingness to assimilate and therefore, their divided allegiances create a dangerous precedent that may lead to the further “balkanization” of America. Assimilation is the key to long term health and vitality of America and not multiculturalism which strikingly failed in Eastern Europe.

Our politicians in an effort to appeal to a block of potential voters cause great harm to our American composite and a disservice to all legal immigrants who patiently follow the rules as they wait to become American citizens. Progressive Congressional Democrats and the Obama Administration have recognized the voting trends of the rapidly growing Hispanic vote. The strength of the Democrat Party is empirically fortified and sustained by a windfall amnesty program that fills the Democrat voter rolls to millions of new voters. We are witness to Latino immigrants possessed of deep roots of family, hard workers, good character, and who possess the same aspirations of a brighter future as any other legal immigrant. Yes, our nation must recognize the infeasibility of rounding up millions of illegal immigrants for deportations. That being the case, the proposition of amnesty or green cards can only be resolved once a secured border is erected and enforced.

The illegal immigrant fiscal benefit to America is in dispute. Illegal immigrants are significantly less educated and unskilled. Therefore, illegal immigrants are more likely to live at the poverty rate; and therefore, they utilize considerably more governmental welfare resources and taxpayer expenditures at the local, state, and federal levels than the taxes they produce to the government. Second, illegal immigration in a period of large economic instability that exists today seizes jobs from American citizens who are desperately searching for employment.

America’s unemployment rate in December 2013 fell to 6.7% but the increase in jobs was only 74,000 workers and half of the created jobs were unskilled part-time employment. Under these circumstances, illegal aliens are competing with American citizens for the scarcity of jobs in the market. The real unemployment figure is 10.3%, if those who gave up looking for employment are counted. Conditions for American workers are so harsh that Obama asks Congress to procure unemployment funds for those unemployed past 90 weeks. American citizens should not take second seats behind an illegal alien for the limited number of jobs created as a result of Obama’s failed economic policies. Amnesty or a path to citizenship should be placed on hold until the borders are secured and the American recession/ depression have ended. American citizen’s rights and liberties should not be negated to further a partisan political agenda. That is un-American and unpatriotic.

In strategic terms, the Boehner path to citizenship (amnesty plan) is quite disturbing, especially in a run-up to a critical election year. Boehner’s ill-advised maneuver shifts the spotlight and public opinion from the titanic failures of Obamacare. For whatever reason, Boehner’s decided to hand Obama and Harry Reid a special election gift that will dampen Republican resolve, funding, and the possibility of recapturing the US Senate. Efforts to recapture the US Senate and hold the House should be Speaker Boehner’s primary concentration. Putting forth his truncated immigration principles was a potentially disastrous amateurish ploy and further divides the Republican Party when they should be unified.

Boehner’s path to citizenship plan provides for work permits, legal status, and probationary periods. His principles sound reasonable and Boehner’s mouthpieces proclaim they will ensure the government secures the border first. Truthfully, are Americans going to discard the realities of the last five years of Obama’s immigration enforcement policies and trust Obama or Boehner for that matter to enforce and secure our borders? Neither one has earned the American public trust or respect.

Congressional Republicans should unite against Speaker Boehner’s “fig leaf” amnesty plan. Americans deserved a new House Speaker who will work for justice and the rights of the common man in Middle America instead of the “fat cats’ within the Chamber of Commerce.

What Boehner and the spineless RINOs are proposing is to grant rights to illegal aliens that are not even granted to citizens who have committed equal or lesser criminal acts as illegals. Somebody here is opening a can of Equal Protection lawsuit worms here the likes of which we have never seen. Damn them.

I’m adult enough to admit that I was excited at his speakership when it happened. Having gone through several years with Pelosi at the helm, ANYTHING was an improvement, and even my wife liked him, which says a lot for someone who’s as apolitical as they come.

I think the larger issue is the corrupting nature of DC as a whole. It seems that men and women with values and conviction go there and lose their way. DC is full of the “Scylla and Charibdis” sort of situations where even a principled citizen legislator is turned into a pawn for the world body politik to which we seem to be turning.

Take Rubio for example; here’s a man who gave a rousing acceptance speech in 2010 to the point that he had me tearing up. Now that he’s been established in DC, he’s become a pandering crybaby who sides with the likes of Schumer and Reid.

I wish no man or woman the curse that is elected office, and that’s the way it should be; but with so many politicians going into office with the best of intentions and leaving 50 years later a corrupted husk of humanity, is it any wonder we’re left making the “Scylla and Charibdis” decisions and getting sucked into the maelstrom anyway?

I like boehner when he was an up an comer but he is the most ineffective Speaker in my lifetime. Hamsters was pretty close, but he had a same party president and was more of a placeholder. The House really screwed up on spending g restraint during his term.

For boehner, he’s a defacto spokesperson for the party in this role and couldn’t have done much worse. IMO, their strategic decisions in 2011 & 2012 are what cost us a chance to beat Obama. Romney’s campaigns as bad, but the guys in leadership allowed this false characteristic of obstructionists to take hold. They let Harry Reid get away wit murder and never called out what was happening,,, they created all these complicated Grand Bargain type discussions and comprehensive negotiations to take place which just created confusion and annoyance among voters. It was a terrible strategy and they let their judgement get clouded by the events of the mid 90s instead of coming up and communicating a sound forward thinking strategy.

i remember reading an article about him, or maybe it was an interview in World Magazine when he was about to become speaker... a lot of conservatives were skeptical... and in the interview he said all of the right things... and it seemed to me many were hoping and cross their fingers... giving him the benefit of the doubt... and he has turned out to be what many feared... i wish someone would oust him from the spot... he isn't just useless to us... he is harmful...

Boner has repeatedly given the American CITIZENS the finger and shown us his disregard for our interests over that of meme of "thinking he will get ILLEGALS to vote for the GOP" if he just passes something, anything. Boner is entirely paid for by the Crony Chamber of Commerce in this regard and he is looking out for his paycheck when he is thrown out of his weepership in Jan 2015, or he loses to a primary challenger in 2014.

Sorry, I just couldn't stop myself when contemplating this BUFFOON. I blame Michele Bachmann for this - she threatened to challenge Boner in Jan 2013 (IMHO she could have easily beat him), and she never followed through on her threat. No wonder she is resigning.

“I feel pretty sure that the Republican House will back away from any Immigration legislation this year. Too toxic and divisive. The excuse for not doing anything will be distrust of Obama to carry out the law.”

Too late. Boehner has brought up the topic with his “principles”. The Dems will incessantly bang these principles over the heads of all Republicans on mistreating the unfortunate illegals all the way up to the November election.

This was great news to the Dems so they can go on offensive against GOP rather than have to defend Obamacare.

thank you Mr Speaker

Assimilation is the key to long term health and vitality of America and not multiculturalism which strikingly failed in Eastern Europe.’

This is key. A century ago Theodore Roosevelt made this point very clear in attacking what he called the ‘hyphens’. He said and it should ever be so, that a man might be an American of German or Irish descent but he was not a ‘German-American or an’Irish-American’, everyone had to be an American First and Last. Assimilation was a virtual crusade in the public schools. My mother attended a school in Washington DC heavily populated with the children of recent Italian immigrants. The rule was once on school grounds only English would be spoken, speak anything else and you got a licking. She also remembered the elementary school texts both history and reading were full of patriotic sentiment designed to inculcate both a love of the USA and pride in its glorious past and heroes and its even more glorious future. It is hard to imagine how patriotic Americans of every region (the former Confederate states made a virtual fetish out of patriotic displays and hailing the red, white and blue.) were a century ago.

Multiculturalism is true poison that seeks to make sure every group will put its group identity first before the nation. The only reason for this , other than pure hatred of the USA, is to produce a society were politicians can perpetually play groups off against each other to insure the politicians keep their highly lucrative role as gate keepers. The result of this sort of polity is what happened to Former Yugoslavia. Eventually the politicians are too lazy,corrupt, or stupid to be able to maintain the balancing act of the nationalities so they turn their various national groups on each other. In the US I believe the outcome would be trying to direct the frustration and rage of the various groups of Latinos and probably in a few decades other groups such as Sub-Saharan Africans at the mostly white middle and upper middle class block.

Many of us see the problem in realistic terms; just enforce the existing immigration law so the sovereignty of the US will not be lost through negotiations by corrupt politicians. I will admit, the one thing that needs to change in the US immigration law is the elimination of one primary reason that causes folks to want to come to America in the first place; the ANCHOR BABY citizenship clause. Get rid of it. BTW, does anyone know if that issue was even part of the Reubs failed proposal? I doubt that it was but if it was, they sure didn't speak about it.

“The House WILL NOT pass another thousand page bill when this Executive Branch (1) cannot find its arse with both its hands, (2) lies to and (3) abuses the American People each and everyday. Period.”

It's not; the GOP view every Democrat win as their own: after all, how can they fear-monger your vote unless the Democrats are really about to pass more gun-control, or loosen abortion restrictions, or slash the defense budget, or increase welfare spending — IOW, they have no intention of solving the problems they claim to be concerned about, because that would necessitate finding different issues… issues you might not care about.

In short, they are all talk and little to no action.
The reason they do not oppose the Democrats is because they really agree with their ideas.

The infamous “Potomac Fever”. I used to think that that was the main problem too. Now I have come to believe that a good many of them are infiltrators-undercover leftists-infiltrating the GOP in order to further the leftist agenda. I don’t consider that scenario the least bit paranoid, as they have done exactly that starting decades ago with the media and academia, and more recently with the military and mainstream Christian churches, and are nibbling at the edges of the Catholic church. Infiltration and either destruction from within, or takeover, works well for them, even better than outright open revolution, because one, it doesn’t hurt their gun-grabbng agenda, and two, they are able to marginalise/turn into a fringe element, such people who believe in Bible inerrancy, the Second Amendment, homeschooling, etc. Once they’re marginalised, they are easily demonised in the popular culture.

Perhaps the one good thing that will come out of this is that the gaping divide this evidences between the GOPe and conservatives will spur large turn outs of those determined to end this nightmare. It’s big money GOP-e vs grass roots Tea Party types. I sure hope we can make a difference. At least the lines have been drawn and sides have been chosen.

Why did Americans elect Obama twice?

Because conservatives were fed up with non-conservative candidates being foisted upon them, so they refused to go to the polls during the 2012 elections. Look at the numbers who chose not to vote.
