Skip to comments.Ten reasons immigration reform isnít dead (RINO Talking Points...)

Conventional wisdom says there will be no movement on immigration reform this year, as the president drops hints he will move to unilaterally alter deportation rules. (Is there any law he executes as written?) Here are ten reasons why the House still might act before the year is out:
1. If the president does move unilaterally, the House will have an incentive to pass a bill on enforcement, in essence telling the president to follow the law and providing additional resources for border enforcement and visa overstay detection. At that point other provisions, including treatment of those affected by the DREAM Act, may come forward.
2. The Democrats have all but given up on a pathway to citizenship, removing a prime objection of many House Republican hardliners. Democrats realize they may lose the Senate and this is the final chance to make good on their promise to Hispanic voters. At this point, the House has the leverage.
3. Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio), in mocking his members reticence to move forward, was speaking honestly. Even though the vast majority of Republicans are in safe seats, they are cowed by anti-immigration voices. That said, the pressure to do something, even if it is not as comprehensive as previously contemplated, will increase if leadership, donors and pro-reform constituents turn up the heat
4. After GOP primaries are in the rear view mirror, but before the general election, there may be breathing space for nervous Republicans.

If automatic path to citizenship is excluded, then immigration reform becomes worth having a discussion.
Also, the automatic citizenship given to births from illegal mothers must be removed.
There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to try and tell this POTUS to “follow the law”.
He won’t do it.
YOU are too fu#king cowardly to do anything about it.
Why waste time?
Rubin is upset Steve King is getting traction.
Some of the biggest amnesty supporters are in safe districts the fabulous Schock.
Some of these candidates in swing districts will see their polling at 53-47, they aren’t going to vote on an amnesty bill months before an election when they are already winning.
Any Republican who votes for amnesty is finished, because the “rewarded” illegals will register as Dims and will never vote for the GOP, and the Dims who champion amnesty will never vote for the GOP, and the GOP base that is being sh!t upon will not vote for those who voted for amnesty.
