Skip to comments.Boehner: GOP immigration plan isn’t ‘amnesty’
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 Obamas hands.
On Tuesday, Boehners 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 GOPs 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.

Boner triples down on killing the GOPe.
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.
Utter feckless idiots. TRAITORS!
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.
OK, John. Let’s call it Shamnesty.
Loyal RINO Obamacrats Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, McConnell, Cornyn, and McCain will come to Obamas 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.
Boehners support will guarantee that no RINOs will ever again receive any Latino votes.
It is not amnesty unless they all get free cars.
Dear Boner: Yes it is.
The guy must be on a Martini IV drip. He’s not in touch with reality.
I don’t think that wet stuff is rain.
And now even the Repubs are pissing on our shoes and telling us it’s raining.
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.
