Obama:Amnesty Bill that Rewards Illegals Means 'Everyone Plays by the Same Rules'
Breibart ^ | March 26, 2014 | Tony Lee

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.

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.

Don't care if illegals are ‘living in the shadows’ or living under a rock. NO MORE ILLEGALS.

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.

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’
___________________________________________

LIAR

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

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?

"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,"

WTF! How can he say people who break the law, scramble across our border and suck taxpayer money, play by the same rules as people like my parents who waited their turn in a war torn continent, followed all the laws and and signed a stipulation that they would take no money from the government no matter how many children of theirs were born here, for FIVE years! I don't think that even the twilight zone is bizzare enough to make this idiot seem coherent.

So is he saying that none of us have to obey the law, since he doesn’t and the illegals don’t?

(1) DMV offices issuing drivers licenses to illegals and (2) Mexican Consuls signing up illegals under Obama-Care.....is just a smokescreen.

Both of these are blatant, in-your-face voter fraud schemes.

healthcare.gov is also a voter registration site. Enrollees in Obamacare are also registered to vote under multiple identities---easily plugged into Dumbo voter rolls-----counted as voting even if they didn't show up.

MOTOR VOTER FRAUD No question, this scheme is another vote-crazed Dummycrat voter fraud. The Dum-dums fix it so that the licensee is also registered to vote. It's a good bet that these people are being licensed under several identities......easily be plugged into Democrat voter rolls and each identity counted on election day....whether they voted or not.

=================================================

NOTE Each state's Secretary of State is tasked w/ investigating voter fraud. Your state's SoS should be contacted WRT possible voter fraud. Obviously a Dem SoS will facilitate the coverup. However, many SoS's are Republicans.
