California Republicans stress immigration support
Associated Press ^ | May 17, 2014 11:19 AM EDT | Kevin Freking

Republican Rep. David Valadao says he’s not worried that Congress’ failure to pass immigration legislation will hurt his prospects for re-election to a district in California’s agricultural heartland. Same goes for GOP Rep. Jeff Denham, who represents a neighboring district in the state’s San Joaquin Valley.

Still, the California congressmen are making sure voters know they support an immigration overhaul. They’re aware that Democrats will try to turn the congressional gridlock into an advantage during this year’s midterm elections.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce spent $300,000 on television ads in Valadao’s district, noting that he is the son of immigrants. […]

Sounding a lot like Democrats, some Republican members of California’s congressional delegation are making the case that changing the law is necessary to help farmers and businesses and to keep families together. …

If these clowns actually believe amnesty is going to save their GOP jobs, they probably shouldn’t be in there anyway.

The US taxpayer is tired of paying for this “act of love” insanity.

Get the city kids that are out of high school and running the streets to work in the agriculture jobs. Make them earn their keep instead of freebies and running their Gibsmedat jobs.

Send the illegals back to wherever they sneaked in from. It’s not all that complicated.

What part of ‘ILLEGAL” don’t these law makers understand?

Because of uncontrolled illegal immigration elected Republicans are irrelevant in California government anyway. Who cares what they think?

If you really area supporter of amnesty we had might as well elect a Dem as far as I am concerned. There is some reason to believe that Boehner and company know full well the negative effects of amnesty on us and everything we believe. But, they are facing massive pressure from the donor class. What they might be doing is trying to get the donors to donate and then run the clock out on them and then blame the lack of “reform” on the Dems for not enforcing the law. If that is true more power to them. But, I really think we should be very much afraid and work on the premise that they are going to stab us in the back. By election day we should know what the game plan is. As I have said before I feel like the wife who thought she had a perfect marriage and suddenly found out that she was being cheated. The marriage was over finished and done on the spot. I feel the same way with business due to amnesty and the complete failure to get any conservative reform that doesn't load thier wallet and the attiutdes of the corporate press. It is time for us to change our whole attitude. If they are going to constantly sell out then let them shell out and pay more taxes.

Any race with a pro-amnesty Republican as candidate, I’d rather see the Dem win.

Ditto any degenerate scumbag Republican candidate who is pro-fag marriage.

That makes no sense. The Dem wins, the pro-amnesty GOP wing “wins” anyway.

If the US is bound and determined to go to Hell (and it’s well on its way), the Dem might as well be in the driver’s seat, rather than a backstabbing Republican.

Not only will I never vote for any pro-amnesty or pro-fag marriage Republican, I frankly hope they all go choke to death! The bastards.

But you’re openly advocating helping it along. Which means you’ll suffer the same fate.

If both the Dem and the Republican are on the same side of the fence, then it’s an unavoidable fate, no matter what.

And both amnesty and fag-marriage spell the end of America, as far as I’m concerned. A country no longer salvageable, a country no longer ‘worth’ salvaging.

Not unavoidable. Besides, this is just California; if the rest of the country can push back, then the California Effect gets nullified.

Voting for the Dem at this point is tantamount to voluntarily receiving the Mark of the Beast. (As is voting for the RINO.)

Never said “I” would vote for a Dem. I’ve never voted for a Dem in my entire life. I said I’d rather the Dem win than have a backstabbing pro-amnesty, pro-fag marriage Republican win, and that I would never give my vote to such a Republican candidate under any circumstances. I’d leave my ballot blank.

There are no CONSERVATIVES in the ‘republican party’ in California. It is a waste land and a waste of time

More’s the shame for those who conservatives that actually live there

Certainly no question as to why the exodus to Texas is ongoing.

This is what happens when you try to be a Republican in areas that are FLOODED with immigrants - if you want to keep your job, you sure as hell better follow the agenda of their leaders, who are just itching to oust you.

Pass Amnesty, and Republicans nationally will be forced to do the same, or even be a smaller minority. That will be the end game for conservatives.

I only wish these knuckleheads would stress the rule of law and defending the Constitution and our borders, didn't they take this oath thingy about that? I think that everyone of these elected officials that choose foreigners over Americans and defending the Constitution should be immediately removed from office.

Just laugh at the CalGOP Country Club.
They pretend that they’ll work hard to get elected to public office again, but it’s just a ruse to get other people to finance their cocktail parties.
