Skip to comments.More Cantor fallout: What happens to Obama’s executive order on deportations now?
Posted on 06/11/2014 1:46:44 PM PDT by PoloSec
Ive been trying to game this out since last night but cant find an obvious answer. For the past six months, theres been a sword hanging over the House GOPs head on immigration. Amnesty fans have put intense pressure on Obama to act within his executive authority to further relax U.S. immigration law, as thats the only way, they claim, he can shed himself of the phony but politically useful label of deporter-in-chief. So Os going to appease them. At some point this summer, hes promised them, hell issue an executive order that does something. What, precisely, is unclear.
My question is, whats left of that timeline now that Cantors been cashiered? The whole point of waiting until August was that Democrats thought there was a slim chance Boehner would bite the bullet and bring something to the floor this summer. No one thinks hell do that now, so theres no longer any reason to wait.

but, the kids rushing the border also complicates things.
The Congressional leaders may still be willing to try and push something through knowing their days are numbered. I believe the whole intent of the Republican leadership was to push this thing through, than go on to well paying jobs in the industries that would reward them.
No surprise! Eric Cantor backs Whiplash McCarthy for the post of majority leader. No thanks!
And asking for billions to take care of these children. Can’t congress ever withhold funds?
“but, the kids rushing the border also complicates things.”
Someone should interview those kids, and find out how they’re getting from South America to our Southern Border! Something ain’t right! That’s a really long trip for a kid to make. I’ll bet they’re being bused! Who’s paying for the tickets?
So now that these kids are here, how do they get back? Or, will they be more homeless people begging on street corners, like we don’t have enough as it is?
This whole shebang is a trumped up Obamabot assisted disaster of their own making. They thought that the pics of thousands of children would bring cries of anguish to help these poor wretches. They thought that this would surely speed up the immigration bill in Congress and pass it post haste. It seems that it has blown up in their faces like everything else they have tried to gin up the poll numbers: Bergdahl trade, O-care, Benghazi, F&F, the list is endless....................
100% in agreement. I’ve heard they come from as far away as 1800 miles. It’s also been stated in the past that Mexico’s sourtern border is tight. So, we’re to think that these children just walked from Central America, all the way to our southern States? No, there’s a story here if someone would look at it!
Gotta have a crisis in order it not be wasted!
But their homemade crises always blow up in their faces. It happens every time.................
How can they push anything? They lost all credibility last night, and politicians up for primary in a year will be running from them.
If you had one chance to earn a golden ticket, but had to push as hard as you could to get that ticket, what would you do?
Unfortunately, too many of the Republicans only care about their immediate future and not the future of the country. If they can earn that golden ticket, but destroy the country in the meantime, that’s all that matters.
Hope the established record continues. But it’s just sooo obvious these kids had help.. Some look like 4 YO.. Word has it, they don’t like the food given them. Reported that they’ve been throwing it in the trash. Hungry folks don’t toss their food. Food’s better then the school lunch program I’m sure!
They are riding on the tops of trains. Search for illegal train...beast train, etc. The media in Honduras, Guatemala, etc. is reporting on the fact that illegal children are to be treated special here- delayed deportation, education, likely amnesty in the end. Parents there are simply sticking their children on the train to get to Northern Mexico and then it is a short hike to US, where they are to be welcomed with open arms.
Go back? Are you kidding? We are going to treat illegal children “differently” as per the head of Homeland Security. Delayed deportation, education, etc...eventual amnesty is the idea. That along with O’s policy of ignoring immigration laws is why we have this flood of people, along with the flood of unaccompanied children.
...Obama to act within his executive authority to further relax U.S. immigration law....
Can’t get much more relaxed about it than busing in aliens and housing them at our military bases, now can you?
And, what do you do with the horde that will cross the border in 2015 and 2016?
Those kids suddenly rushing the border is completely orchestrated-—
No different than the July 4th festivities in any American town.
