Obama Gives Boehner One More Chance to Pass Immigration
Roll Call ^ | Tuesday, May 27, 2014 | Sreve Dennis

Posted on 05/27/2014 7:10:14 PM PDT by kristinn

President Barack Obama won’t act to reduce deportations on his own until the end of the summer — giving Speaker John A. Boehner one more chance to vote on an immigration overhaul.

Two administration officials confirmed that the president has directed Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to hold off on releasing the results of his review of immigration policy in the meantime.

The hope in the White House is that once Republican primary season largely wraps up June 10, Boehner, R-Ohio, will have the political space to get something done.

Street theater for the masses so that boehner and obama can both pretend this wasn’t decided months ago.

Isn’t it the Chief Executive’s job to execute the laws?

NOT to defy them?

Won't take too much more of this nonsense until short mustaches are back in style and the American communist party (CPUSA)are going to start running for the tall grass.

These degenerate marxist assholes apparently don't understand the concept of pushing things too far.

If America “had a dream” to live prosperous and free,
Then the dream must killed, and consumed you see.
The Obamavultures continue feasting, while Boehner sits still,
“Both” parties know our pain as required collateral damage to fulfill.

What word did our Doormat Republicans not understand,
When Obama was first crowned The Tyrant of the Land?
Was it “Fundamentally” or “Transform” or “The United States of America?”

Why are these confused Leader Doormat Republicans still kept in power?
Why haven’t our TEA Party House Members sent Boehner to the back bench?
What does it take be it Benghazi, NSA, IRS, DOJ, or Delay to Death of our Vets?
Who are the Patriot House Members of “both” Parties to vote out Boehner?

When do We, the People rise up and declare that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!?
When do our elected House Members stand and deliver?
When does the well-deserved Impeachment of Obama begin?
When do our House Constitutional Checks and Balances kick in?

Back in DC, things are as calm as can be,
Obama lies, frames, blames, denies and delays,
Allowing the Obamavultures to feast as before,
While Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, Ryan, and Issa,
Hold open the race to the bottom door - - - -.

It is time, - - - - time a change in 2014.

I miss the old days when we had a Constitution. And people who swore to uphold it meant it.

Unless Boehner caves, immigration is going nowhere as an issue.

The Dems are too scared politically to pass it on their own like they did with Obamacare. Contrary to the polls, Americans DO NOT support amnesty for illegal aliens.

The Dems need the GOP to pass it so then they can say Republicans supported it too when SHTF.

well I guess misdirecting attention at Boehner is as good an excuse as any for not releasing the results

In my opinion, Obama and his regime have painted themselves into a corner and are trying to force the GOP to give them a way out.

For months/years they trumpeted that the borders were more secure than ever and that they have deported MORE illegals than Bush did. ...That mantra is not looked upon favorably by the liberals/Hispanics who want amnesty for illegals, so the Dems really want the GOP to pass some reforms for illegals so that Obama’s regime can claim credit.

Recent news, however, says they have been counting the people turned away at official border entry points as “deportations”, even though those people were never allowed to enter the US.

The regime is thus caught between admitting they have been lying all along about border security and deportations OR depending upon the GOP to bail them out by passing reform legislation. They’re pressing for the latter.

The House GOP better remain firm and not even address the issues involved. Let the Dems fend for themselves.
