Pelosi:Passing Immigration Reform is More Important Than Democrats' Winning in November
The Hill ^ | March 27, 2014 | Mike Lillis

Full Title:Passing Comprehensive Immigration Reform is More Important Than Democrats' Success at the Polls in November, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Passing comprehensive immigration reform is more important than Democrats' success at the polls in November, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday.

A number of Republicans and other conservative voices have accused Pelosi and the Democrats of using the immigration reform issue as a political crutch, suggesting the Democrats would rather keep the issue alive for campaign purposes than actually pass a bill.

But Pelosi on Thursday rejected that notion outright, and she didn't mince words.

"I believe, and I say this with all the sincerity I have, that it is more important to pass comprehensive immigration reform — to me and to my caucus — than to win the election in November," Pelosi said at a Washington gathering of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Passing “Immigration reform” ensures that the Democrats win in November. That’s what it’s all about.

Anytime a politician says an issue is more important than winning an election - they are lying.

Let Nancy keep saying stupid things for the next 8 months. Best advertising we have that a change is needed.

Woman is certifiable.

Actually, she’s right.

Get “reform” passed. Maybe they lose this next election. But think of the millions of new Democratic voters that they will create.

They may never lose again after that. You gotta give before you get.

Obama's done everything he can to suckup to illegals except fellate a latino on the Capitol steps. Obama is hopping like a jack rabbit to enroll illegals at Mexican consulates---healthcare.gov is also a voter registration site---all those illegal enrollees can be plugged into Democrat rolls.

JUST FOR THE RECORD Obama's elevated latinos to the USSC, cabinet positions, admin jobs, absolved illegals of all culpability for falsifying official documents, welfare fraud, EITC fraud, murders, border violations, arms trafficking, drug trafficking. He stopped deportations, gave 'em jobs taken away from Americans, free healthcare, education, financed every other whim w/ tax dollars.

Obama is illegally giving out work permits, refusing to deport most captured illegals and he has illegitimately created a DREAM ACT by fiat. This is a man who has made absolutely clear that he has no intention of enforcing immigration law; so how do you make any kind of deal that relies on his implementing even tougher rules?

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

GRAB A TOWEL Vote-crazed Dummycrats are salivating at the chance of passing amnesty....and foisting these people on America.

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

Meet the new Dummycrats---voting several times each under several identities. Quoting America hater Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridge’s MEChA chapter: “The ultimate MECha ideology is the liberation of Aztlan (taking back the SW USA). Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established on US soil, ethnic cleansing (of Americans) would commence: Non-Chicanos (Americans) would have to be expelled — opposition groups (that's us) would be quashed because latinos have to keep power.”

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

Hmmmmmm.....Pelosi, Schumer and Gutierrez are awfully close-mouthed about federal Tax dollars flowing to race-based, blood-thirsty "La Raza." The amnesty bill would gift LaRaza w/ a neverending per annum $100 million to conduct its hate-America activites.

NOTE Violence-filled La Raza was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its mortgage activities. La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the lowering mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards. La Raza aided and abetted risky federal and private-home loans to latinos over the last decade thanks to the lending industry’s version of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” In addition to millions of federal tax dollars, La Raza also collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling." (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down).

-===============================================

Republican Sen Charles Grassley tried to assist Americans w/ an amendment to the amnesty bill "Congress should not thumb its nose at the millions of Americans who are victims of identity theft, often perpetrated by an undocumented person who steals Social Security numbers to get jobs, govt benefits, driver's licenses and more. This amendment will simply require the person applying for RPI status to disclose any previously used Social Security numbers," said Grassley. "It's the first step to helping clean up the mess that's been created for the victim of identity theft. The amendment also authorizes certain federal agencies, upon receipt of this information, to notify individuals who were the victims."

SEN SCHUMER CHIMED IN: Dismissing Sen Grassley's proposal, ranking Dem member Sen Schumer (Dimwit-NY) said: "When people are living in undocumented status, there are times, I suppose, when they've made up identities, made up Social Security numbers. How are they going to remember all that? (The) purpose of this bill is to bring people out of the shadows. We all know when they lived in the shadows, they had to forge documents, forge Social Security numbers, et cetera. I just don't see how, when you've lived here 10 years, and you've had many different identities, many different numbers, you're going to remember them all," said Schumer.

Minority Madam Nancy Pelosi (Dimwit-CA) has said that amnesty legislation would pass by June if it passes this year, -----vote-crazed Dems are desperate----the clock is ticking ---- 2014 looms and the votes arent there for the lock-stepping party loyalists.

FACTS ON FILE---The Senate Immigration "Reform" Bill
Protects corrupt Latino Public Officials from US laws and from prosecution.

Vote-crazed Dems' amnesty law absolves elected/appointed latinos holding US public office from prosecution for wrongdoing---for crimes like government fraud, graft, bribery, selling votes for cash....(the usual politician crimes).

There really is a Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials organized for govt fraud.

Of course, because that will be the last time Democrats lose until the nation collapses in bankruptcy and ruin. The clueless Republicans will never win another election when all of Mexico is casting US ballots for freebies.

She's great. I love this chick. She would ask for the entire democrat party to commit actual, physical suicide for a $0.50 increase in the minimum wage, and declare it to be a bold stroke for a glorious future.

She puts the bat-shit in bat-shit-crazy, that one.

You guys only get HALF OF THE STORY.

What made 2006 so terrible for Republicans was President Bush and McCain pushing Amnesty so damn hard. It simply depressed and aready-depressed base.

So, for 2014, if the Dems want to really depress the Republican base - which is their ONLY HOPE to prevent a bloodbath, they have to get Amnesty through - THAT SIMPLE. And they are close, as there may be enough REPUBLICAN IDIOTS to help her along.

So, not only does the Republican Party end up joining the Soviet Communists in the Ash Heap of History, in a decade or so, if Amnesty passes, we also end up DESTROYING our chances to clean house this year.

This MUST BE STOPPED.

Read a report this A.M. of Hispanics not signing up for obamacare. I’ll leave my opinion, at that first sentence, for the time being. I think I know why Hispanics are not signing up, as does everyone else here knows also.

RE :”Read a report this A.M. of Hispanics not signing up for obamacare. I’ll leave my opinion, at that first sentence, for the time being. I think I know why Hispanics are not signing up, as does everyone else here knows also.”

One theory floating around is that they are scared to sign up because they live with illegal friends or relatives and don't want to get them in trouble.

Another one is that the Spanish language website isn't working yet.

"Passing Immigration Reform is More Important Than Democrats' Winning in November"

Precisely because the Demmunists will never have to expend any energy or time to steal another election from that moment onward.

Passing comprehensive immigration reform is more important than Democrats' success at the polls in November, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday.

She's right.

Just like LBJ's "Great Society" programs ensuring the black vote for Dems in perpetuity, giving citizenship (and voting rights) to millions of Hispanics in 2014 will ensure that the Dems will win in 2016, and forever after that.

If this passes, then the US that we grew up in, will forever be dead.
