Boehner: GOP immigration plan isn’t ‘amnesty’
MSNBC ^ | 2/4/14 | Benjy Sarlin

Posted on 02/05/2014 6:10:27 PM PST by jimbo123

House Speaker John Boehner is defending new Republican immigration principles from critics on the right who complain it rewards illegal immigration and plays into President Obama’s hands.

On Tuesday, Boehner’s office released a Q&A explaining why the speaker had decided to pursue immigration reform and how it would address major concerns within his party.

“The focus of this Congress should be on creating jobs and growing our economy,” the document reads. “Reforms to our immigration system will accomplish those goals and address a serious national security issue.”

The immigration principles, released at the House GOP’s retreat in Maryland last week, call for a revamped legal immigration system for both high skilled and temporary workers, new border security and enforcement measures, and – most controversially – a program to legalize qualifying undocumented immigrants.

The most common issue House Republicans have raised with passing reform this year is that they fear Obama will bank the legalization part and then unilaterally refuse to enforce the security measures attached to it.

Anything that does not deport Illegal Aliens is “Amnesty”

The Amnesty Liberals in the GOP look like total morons, more and more each day. Yes, Ted Cruz is right...Schumer, Reid, are laughing their butts off over this nonsense

Hear that, mean-old nativists and right-wing extremists? This is what Boehner & the GOP thinks of you. You’re stupid because you don’t trust the wife-beaters in the GOP. They know what’s good for us!

John Boehner is just as much a liar as the bam.

A veritable tag-team of deception.

The source is MSNBC. But, in this case, they seem to just be spinning the Ryan/Zuckerberg/McCain propaganda line.

Boehner is a corrupt, lying, self-serving POS.

isn’t ‘amnesty’

They think that, if they say it enough, people will eventually believe it.

==

It gets tiresome. McCain, Bush, Rubio, Boehner, et al, all try to convince that their version is not 'amnesty'.

Loyal RINO Obamacrats Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, McConnell, Cornyn, and McCain will come to Obama’s side and rescue the highly unpopular “Obama Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico” with the even more unpopular “RINO Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico.”

Always eager to fail, the RINOs have decided at their weekend RINO hug fest that rescuing the already failed Obama Amnesty Plan is just to tempting a guaranteed failure to pass up.

Boehner’s support will guarantee that no RINOs will ever again receive any Latino votes.

Legalizing illegals is amnesty, without regard to citizenship. I'll not approve any form of amnesty, even for a bullshit promise of more border security.

Anything less than fully enforcing the laws of the United States is defacto amnesty.

Give me four years of fully enforcing the immigration laws and THEN we’ll talk about legalizing the ones that are left.

That’s the same thing Bush and McCain said in 2007 and Rubio said last year.
They never are amnesty because they pay that ‘fine’ , of course they get>> 100times that fine back in handouts, but that doesnt count.

If you don’t send these people to jail for income tax evasion, identity theft, welfare fraud, obtaining false documents and all the other crimes that go with being an illegal alien, then it is AMNESTY!

Beyond pathetic. Anything that waives the penalties for a large number of people who've broken the law is an amnesty. These low life politicians never tire of insulting the base with that long running lie and misrepresentation concering the meaning of amnesty.

It’s about time for “W” to pop up again and insult the base once more concerning this issue, the only issue that motivates him to comment despite the widespread ineptness and failures of the Obama gang.

Agree with your listing.

I would add one more.

Authorize lethal force against anyone breaching the US Southern border, just a Mexico does on their Southern border (except the Mexicans accept bribes and rape the women, as well, and let them go.)

It will be amnesty by the time Reid, Pelosi, Obama and liberal media (network news) whine about "white privilege" and what bigots republicans are for not doing the whole thing right. They want the southern border opened wide.

Impressing unemployed American workers is no longer in their greater interest, nor do they have concern about the effects of the behemoth debacle known as Obamacare upon this land or the people they were elected to represent.
