Skip to comments.Schumer to GOP: Obama will 'curtail' deportations without immigration deal
Posted on 03/14/2014 10:09:03 AM PDT by BradtotheBone
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Friday warned that Republicans would have to watch helplessly while President Obama curbs deportations, unless the GOP helps move a comprehensive immigration package in the House.
Schumer, one of the leaders of the Senates Gang of Eight that pushed through a comprehensive immigration package last year, said it is clear where the issue of immigration reform is heading. They can either help pass comprehensive reform, which will greatly reduce the flow of illegal immigrants, grow our economy by bringing in needed workers in high-tech and agriculture areas, and provide a hard-earned path to eventual citizenship for the 11 million in the shadows, he said in a Facebook post, or they can sit idly by and watch the President greatly curtail deportations while 11 million continue to live in limbo here in America.
The comments came a day after President Obama directed the Department of Homeland Security to find a way to enforce deportation laws more humanely.
Schumer said the choice is clear.
A reform bill has the support of liberals, moderates, and conservatives and all we need is the courage of the Republican leadership to make the right and obvious choice, he said.
Obama made his direction after a meeting with leaders of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
Immigration advocates and some Democrats, in particular Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.), have been pressing the administration to use its power to slow the rate of deportations, which have reached nearly 2 million during his administration.
The president emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from the separation that comes from our broken immigration system, the White House said in a readout after the meeting Thursday.

“Schumer to GOP: Obama will ‘curtail’ deportations without immigration deal”
That you Schumer — In the spirit of bi-partisanship of course.
Scummee is just the voice of a boot licker gone wild.
Give me what I want or I will stop enforcing the law I have sworn to uphold.
This is as impeachable an offense as has ever been committed by a president of the United States.
“The president emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from the separation that comes from our broken immigration system, the White House said in a readout after the meeting Thursday.
But Obama doesn’t give a rats behind about all the other family separations that occur when other felons are convicted and carted off to prison.
Only in liberal land are illegal aliens a protected class.
This is an act of domestic terrorism. It is outright war.
a man who has never worked a day in the private sector.
Charles Ellis Schumer.
Schumer’s an idiot.
You know how Obama claims to have “deported” more people than anyone else? Like good statist liberals, it’s because they changed the definition of deported to fit their needs.
Deported NOW includes anyone “turned away at the border”. They don’t have to be in the country, get caught and sent home to be considered deported. Oh no. All they have to do now is be turned away before ever entering the country. That gets counted as a deportation.
Go to hell, Schumer.
OK, go ahead, we dare you should be the response. Meanwhile if he does, one more arrow for the quiver.
Schumer is trying to extort help from the Republicans. Extortion is part of democrats game plan.

Honestly, although infuriating, I don’t care.
1) Our economy sucks, so illegal immigration is way down anyway.
2) No immigration deal means that the Republicans can’t help Democrats turn millions of illegal immigrants into Democrat voters.
So, fine. You’re time is short upChuck and you won’t ever get the millions of new Democrats your hoping for.
Schumer’s only asking for what Rubio, Ryan, Boehner, McCain, and Grahamnesty want.
The conservatives should then run ads exposing how Obama is “blackmailing the American people” by refusing to deport “job stealing, welfare consuming illegal aliens.”
Curtail? Obama & ICE have been slowing down deportations for several years. Even those with orders to go are set free and ICE pretends they will show up later to get on the plane to go. Obama’s “curtail” must means those previously sent away get a free return ticket to our USA. Say NO to the amnesty bill.
Time for some selective enforcement against him.
That’s my thought as well. If Obama unilaterally curtailing deportations eliminates the possibility of the GOPe negotiating a path to citizenship for tens of millions of new Democrat voters, it’s an ok price to pay.
Added bonus is that any/all crime committed by those allowed to stay gets hung on Obama and the Dems.
My response would be a statistic I saw yesterday...
Under Obama and the Democrat Controlled Senate, Illegal Immigrants have a higher rate of employment than Blacks in the U.S.
Whatcha got to say about that Chuckles?
Bully Obama double-dog dares cowardly House RINOs to Impeach him.
Removal from Office by the US Senate can ONLY be accomplished AFTER a Chief Executive is Impeached by the US House of Representatives.
The House is analogous to the Police, and the Senate is analogous the Judge and Jury.
First the House must Impeach Obama.
Then the Senate determines if the Impeached Obama should be removed from office.
Most FReepers fall in the all or nothing camp, and only want to consider a clear path to Removal from Office.
Our Constitution makes it very clear: Impeach first by the House, and then have the Senate decide on Removal.
The objective is to punish Obama for his many violations of his sacred oath to defend the US Constitution.
Although bi-weekly Impeachments for at least a year of B. Hussein Obama would be required to punish him for all of his Constitutional violations over the last 5 years, just one Impeachment is an achievable goal in the summer of 2014.
Obamas Removal from Office by the US Senate would be good for America, but unlikely before 2015 as Reids US Senate has not yet demonstrated any interest in what is good for America.
Since the RINOs now have control of the US House of Representatives in 2014, then 2014 is the last year that we can be certain that Obama could be Impeached.
The RINOs assume that they will maintain control of the US House, but their usual desire to lose to Democrats is so strong, that their assumption may not be a valid one.
Thus, a reasonable plan to Remove Obama from Office would be to Impeach Obama in the Summer of 2014, hold that Impeachment during the Autumn Election Campaign, and then send the completed Impeachment of Obama to the US Senate in 2015 one week after the newly elected Republican Senators are sworn in.
The Republicans would then have a clear National Voter Referendum on what the voter loyalty is towards Obama and his past Five Year Plan:
IF YOU DONT LIKE WHAT OBAMA HAS DONE IN THE LAST 5 YEARS TO FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THEN VOTE FOR YOUR REPUBLICAN SENATOR AND HOUSE REPRESENTATIVE.
As Speaker Newt Gingrich proved to us with his Contract With America: Republicans win when they actively campaign on the basic Republican truth that All Politics are National.
Thus, the 2014 Republican Candidates for House and Senate would have the assured Removal from Office of Obama as another excellent reason to vote a straight Republican ticket, in addition to the other Campaign issues such as Obamacare, Benghazi, IRS, NSA, and all of the other Obama Scandals.
Hopefully, the Democrats and the Left Stream Media will accuse the RINOs of using the blame game by playing politics to use the Obama phony scandals as a political football to quiet their extremist TEA Party base by trying to Impeach the first Nobel Peace Prize wining Commander in Chief.
Come to think of it, their comments are EXACTLY what our Founding Fathers would have expected from supporters of those who are undergoing Constitutional Checks and Balances.
Speaker Boehner has proven himself to be incapable of protecting the US Constitution from a Lawless Chief Executive.
Speaker Boehner tried and failed, convincingly.
Boehner must resign as Speaker of the House by April 15, 2014.
Trey Gowdy, (or another strong Republican), should be the new Speaker, and then Obama could be easily Impeached in the American Summer of 2014 while the RINOs still have control of the House, and the elections are not yet completed.
Make 2014 the Summer of Constitutional Checks and Balances.
Impeach Soetoro-Obama in the Summer of 2014, PERIOD.
Exactly. If you do it on an apples to apples basis they've gone down under Obama already. See here
Lies, Damned Lies and Government Statistics.
Of course, one must also recall that as a House Member, Chucky was Janet Reno's most consistent defender over the mass killing she directed at Waco. He is not a nice man; not a compassionate fellow--rather, better described as a sociopathic thug.
When is the impeachment vote, and when does the trial start?
Giving a voice to those “voiceless”, killed by Illegal Immigrants and giving a voice to those that loved the victims.
Seems to me that chucky ought to look at, read about, speak to each and every victim of an Illegal Immigrant who broke our laws, shouldn’t have been here and killed/injured/victimized An American Citizen. Citizens whom are his constituents and fellow Americans. Heads up chucky, illegal are not your constituents nor your fellow Americans, nor are they law-abiding.
Effe Schmuckie. A turd.
I wish Obama would say this The president emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from his new healthcare law that comes from his broken affordable healthcare law.This was signed into law by Obama with payments into the millions of dollars going to contractors who in a sense Obama is giving them free money awarded to people who could not build website in the first place.. Lois Lerner Pleas the 5th again. Before her hearing.Obama boasted there’s not a smidgeon of corruption from the IRS.God only knows what he will do with immigration.
A war is being waged by Marxists and criminals on the soul of the USA.
or they can sit idly by and watch the President greatly curtail deportations while 11 million continue to live in limbo here in America.
SO, chuckie, the presidents answer is to curtail deportations, while leaving 11 million Illegals
I love that. Der Leader will deliberately violate and refuse to enforce Federal law unless the Republican Party abrogates its responsibilities. How charming.
What will it take to impeach this loser?
