Skip to comments.Obama:Amnesty Bill that Rewards Illegals Means 'Everyone Plays by the Same Rules'
Posted on 03/27/2014 5:58:06 PM PDT by lbryce
After House Democrats filed a discharge petition on Wednesday to try to force a vote on comprehensive amnesty legislation, President Barack Obama praised the bill as one that would "make sure everyone plays by the same rules," even though it would give special treatment to illegal immigrants who have broken the law.
In a White House press statement, Obama blamed "Republicans in the House" for refusing to "allow meaningful immigration reform legislation to even come up for a vote." He then applauded the "efforts of Democrats in the House to give immigration reform the yes-or-no vote it deserves."
"It would make sure everyone plays by the same rules by providing a pathway to earned citizenship for those who are living in the shadows," Obama said. "Immigration reform is the right thing to do for our economy, our security, and our future."
House Democrats need 218 signatures to force a vote, which is highly unlikely, for their H.R. 15 immigration bill that is essentially the Senate's comprehensive immigration bill with looser border security provisions. The discharge petition, at this writing, has 24 of the 218 signatures needed. Reportedly, 200 people have co-sponsored the bill, including three Republicans who have said they would not sign the discharge petition.

When Hussein says “our” — he does not mean Americans.
“what are words for”
“When no one listens”
So when somebody robs a bank you just change the law to make it legal. GOOD THINKING THERE OBUMMER !!!
They only have 150 plus signers. I hope Kirkpatrick and Barber sign it so they can be pounded by the Arizona GOP candidates.
This was Lipinski a moderate Democrat from Chicago back in 2013.
We have so many people unemployed in the country right now, responded Lipinski. We have wages that have been stagnant for decades. So, how does allowing more people in here to work legally not do more harm to that?
Tempers flared among the attendees when the Hispanic and Arab representatives disagreed with the idea that they are taking jobs away from American workers.
Amid shouting from the audience after that comment was made, the meeting ended.
Obama thinks that God doesn’t hear him.
a total contradiction...what a jerk
Is this”ObongoSpeak”for;There Are No Rules?????????????
Business men want them because they pay them MUCH LESS than minimum wage. Then to sale their guilty consciences they fight to make them citizens. When illegals become legal they STOP working for nothing because their citizens.
Then the slavery lite process starts all over. The unemployment rate among LEGAL HISPANICS - the people made legal last time - is SKY HIGH. IF this wasn't slaverylite they would hire the Hispanics already here.
With DMV offices issuing drivers licenses to illegals and Mexican Consuls signing up illegals under Obama-Care, who needs a silly immigration bill? this is just a smokescreen
“It would make sure everyone plays by the same rules by providing a pathway to earned citizenship for those who are living in the shadows,” Obama said.”
In the shadows, yeah right.
Oh, for the days when an American lived in that mansion.
funny how the Left likes to project with words. The Nazis did the same with Work brings Freedom. Of course as those words were seen one was entering a death camp!
‘Everyone Plays by the Same Rules’
The illegal aliens didn’t play by the same rules that I did to enter the US ...
Immigrants have rules to follow..illegal aliens are lawless and get away with their criminal behavior..
Illegal aliens are not immigrants
AMNESTY is not IMMIGRATION

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
Everyone plays by the same rules? So the illegal aliens who have infested our country are going to be kicked off welfare and out of the country, right?
It’s not a new Dem concept — remember Gore’s “no controlling authority” when he was taking bribes from those Asian monks?
