Skip to comments.With Anger Building, Boehner Puts The Brakes On Amnesty
Posted on 02/17/2014 11:48:52 AM PST by preacher
In an abrupt switch from his months of work to bring immigration reform back from life support, Speaker John Boehner told reporters today that the issue cannot move forward until President Obama proves he can be a trustworthy partner to implement the law as written.
There's widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws. And it's going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes, Boehner said.
The change in tack comes after rank-and-file members pushed hard against action on the issue this year when immigration principles were unveiled at a retreat last week and top immigration hawks had begun to discuss how they could thwart Boehner in his march to bring the issue to the floor

The Speaker wants it. Prominent Republicrats want it. Industry and lobbyists have promised big rewards.
The DNC wants it because it will be a massive power shift in the electorate that will heavily favor them.
Who’s on the side of who? Is this inevitable with the current power brokers?
emergencymidnight session of Congress.
And just exactly when has this lying pile of steaming brown stuff proven to be a "trustworthy partner"? Not any time I've heard about.
He’s a snake and not to be trusted. Not for a moment. Not ever. Never turn your back on him, always watch him.
let’s bet what day no-balls boner will come forward and say barrycades has proved to him he’s trustworthy and now amnesty can move forward...
Did he start to cry?
Buh bye boner.
Last dim witted stunt.
Time for a TP guy to roll ya.
RINO taqqiyah. Don’t believe them and KEEP THE HEAT ON.
After five years of dealing with a habitual liar, Boehner has just figured this out?
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE ELITISTS?
The last Democrat president with even a scintilla of trust died in Dallas more than a half century ago.
The article is 11 days old.
None of them is on the side of normal taxpaying americans; you know, the people they are supposed to represent.
If there is a AmRev2 every one of them need to be out and never again allowed to run for even public outhouse mucker much less ever vote again. They are the loyalists of our time.
The answer to your question is contained in the question.
I already don’t trust whoever will be our next president.
The issue on its own is troublesome enough, but I'm convinced that the GOP lost those elections because a huge chunk of middle-class American voters stayed home out of disgust for a Federal government that pisses away thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars on idiotic wars halfway around the world ... while it is hell-bent on allowing millions of foreign invaders to pour through our borders here at home.
One of these days soon he’ll have a press conference and announce that he and Obama shook hands in agreement on it. Both of them are one and the same in mindset and neither has the slightest remorse about whatever consequences befall the nation and citizens because of their treachery.
There’s widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws. And it’s going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes,
...do just one thing, anything, that would rejuvenate our trust! I have ZERO trust in these ying yangs. ZERO. “Change” will hopefully, prayerfully come in November!
where did i say no-balls boner didn’t have guts on this?
I know he wants it. No-balls Boner is just his name.
This “News” is 11 days old.
Didn’t he say the exact same thing a few weeks ago?
Well, Obama being treacherous has a silver lining.
Boehner is right. Obama could turn something that at least the GOPe could swallow, into a nightmare.
A good reminder why Congress would best earn its keep right now, just sitting on its hands as much as possible.
Well, when the government fears the people, there is liberty...
And yes. Obama has shown himself enough of a wild card that congressional Republicans know they would be completely daft to feed him anything new.
We’ll see your pen and phone, and raise you a nothing doing.
That's not going to change! Trust the Obamanation? Not going to happen!

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow...

EXHIBIT ONE Amnesty will fulfill Obama's dream of a permanent Democratic majority. Obama's done everything to suck-up to illegals except fellate 'em on the steps of the Capitol.
EXHIBIT TWO Buying latino votes is the Democratic MO to stay in power.
EXHIBIT THREE---- EXTORTION, CONSPIRACY AND COLLUSION The Senate amnesty bill hands blood-thirsty La Raza an endless $100 million tax dollars per year to wage war on Americans.
EXHIBIT FOUR--THE ETHNIC SOLDARITY CAUCUS The Congressional Hispanic caucus has been quiet about its role in extorting taxpayers---by financing America-hating La Raza via secret "Congressional earmarks."
EXHIBIT FIVE--- "La Raza" got tax dollars and Congressional earmarks to finance its so-called "mortgage" activities. La Raza's "strategic partnerships with Wachovia and Bank of America facilitated the falsifying of mortgage-applications and the downgrading of mtge requirements and documentation standards.
EXHIBIT SIX--- La Raza effectively bilked taxpayers out of billions (for bailouts).....decimating the US economy for their own self-serving purposes.
EXHIBIT SEVEN--- La Raza colluded to aid and abet risky federal and private-home loans to latinos over the last decade....forcing the lending industrys ruinous dont ask, dont tell policies.
EXHIBIT EIGHT--LAUGH BREAK La Raza pocketed a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded (ahem) community-development projects. Analysts report that much of it went to La Raza's "mortgage counseling."
La Raza's ideology represents a serious threat to the survival of the United States as we know it. If they had their way they would return what is now the American Southwest and California to Mexico. And they align themselves with radical Muslim interests against western civilization around the world. No way they should be getting any US government funding whatsoever.
We’ll see how long bone head pretends to be putting the brakes on.
Imagine having to work two jobs to pay for your health insurance that is now costing more than your house payment. Then imagine all the millions of welfare slugs who get it all for free. How long can this continue?
.....the blood-thirsty latinos are colluding w/ other Third World pressure groups to loot the US Treasury and hollow us out from within (like Greece)......
....they want to takeback the American Southwest and California w/ armed conflict, if necessary......
.....they are conspiring w/ radical Muslims whose goal is the destruction of Western civilization and the decimation of Christians around the world.
