John Boehner forms group to address child migrant crisis
Politico ^ | SEUNG MIN KIM

Posted on 06/24/2014 3:35:38 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday that he has appointed a “working group” of House Republicans tasked to respond to the border crisis involving the surge of unaccompanied minors trying to enter the United States illegally. (SNIP) Members of the working group include Republican Reps. John Carter of Texas, Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida, Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, Kay Granger of Texas, Michael McCaul of Texas, Steve Pearce of New Mexico and Matt Salmon of Arizona. Granger chairs the subcommittee that oversees funding for the State Department and foreign operations.

Diaz-Balart voted for the Dream Act and said he would have voted against Steve King's DACA amendment. John Carter joined Labrador and Gutierrez. I wonder if Raul got punished (against McCarthy) by not being included in Boehner's immigration squish group. Goodlatte is for amnesty and Dreamers. Steve King destroyed Gowdy and Goodlatte in the 2013 Dreamer Committee. So Gowdy went and complained to a scrum of reporters. McCaul: Im not sure but I think he says close the border first. But also wants to secure Mexico's southern border. Pearce wants legal status for illegals. He admits Reagan made a mistake. So there were 3 milllion illegals. Only half of them I think applied to be citizens. The other half just got work permits. It is still a magnet to illegals.

Matt Salmon is the worst House Rep from Arizona. http://seeingredaz.wordpress.com/2013/10/29/laura-ingraham-is-the-bear-in-matt-salmons-stream/

“The problem is that it can clearly be misinterpreted, and that’s too bad,” said Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart. R-Fla., who said he would have voted against the measure. (He missed the vote.) “Folks that might otherwise vote for the ‘dreamers’ voted the other way out of frustration with an administration that is out of control. I wish they would have chosen another issue.”

What a waste of time. Use your power of the purse or exact other consequences.

Probably the same members who comprise the "Southern Border Fence" committee. Now there's a committee that gets things done!! (Do I really need a /sarc tag?)

Excellent analysis. A committee of amnesty supporters, especially for “Dreamers.” is proof positive that this is another scam to promote amnesty.

...sounds like the Open Borders Republican crowd to me.

I don’t know why I even TRY to pay attention to what’s going on anymore because I think that America’s already over and it ain’t coming back.

It seems we are witnessing the rubber meeting the road with regard to state’s rights. At some point soon, the border states mainly affected — TX, NM, AZ — need to make a stand. Whether this comes from “official” channels or just a citizen militia, who knows. But it is abundantly clear that there will be no federales stopping this invasion. To the contrary, they are aiding and abetting it.

Until and unless chain migration is halted, there will be quite a price to pay. Helping children is one thing. Turning around and letting their parents in because they are here is the motive behind this gov’t move.

The answer to all those open border traitors: Even wider borders and no immigration laws.

I don’t know if you’ve heard this before. It was said years ago but it’s most unfortunately to the continued successful functioning of this country so, so prescient.

Read and weep!

I had this probably deranged fantasy recently that maybe the Republicans are laying low until the 2014 elections to see what the results are and if they would also control the Senate. And that, if they then have both houses, they’ll finally stand up to Obama.

How fantasy land is thinking like this?

I’m so pissed off about EVERYTHING that I’m ready to revolt. But most people seem ready to shut up and shuffle along into the sunset.

I don’y get it. I never thought that America would go down without a fight.

Congress, by that I mean the people in it, know that the Ponzi schemes they have created, Social Security being one of them, requires more bodies to push-off collapse. That’s the real but hidden reason both parties are pushing amnesty and open borders.

Yeah, but since when do the people coming into the country these days, legally and illegally actually become taxpayers?

Meg Ryan, when she ran for Governor of California, had this line that the state had like 13% of the nation’s population and something like 35% of its welfare recipients. And I’m pretty sure that CA has the highest percentage of immigrants in its population. So it would sure seem to me that that immigration ain’t working too well.

“By all means, let’s have a committee.”

Well you have to do something to present a false front
of opposition. Establishing a committee makes it look
like they are trying to do something about it. In the
past 6 years, where has a republican committee done
anything to stop what Obama is doing? It’s just a show
and nothing more.

We’re are up to our waist in wetbacks now, soon we will
be over our heads. Learn Mexican border lingo quick because
that’s going to be the national language soon.

“TX, NM, AZ — need to make a stand.”

And when they do, Obama will be there to put a boot on
it. Either with the courts or the military. And I would
say with the consent of a few republicans too, no doubt.

Boehner is playing politics again, this time for his next run at the Speakership. God help us if he wins again.

You know I don’t even get excited or hopeful when I see headlines like this one. Sure enough it’s chucked full of names I never heard of, which translates to not anyone on our side, that these people, “ain’t it”. Amnesty lovers all of them, disguised as “immigration reform”.

You said it. On every point. However, even WE are not in the streets, not a force, not a threat, therefore not a chance.

Clearly we are *not* the stuff of our fathers and grandfathers.

I don’t get it either. We used to be a country full of self reliant hard working people. Now everyone just rolls over and eats the shitt sammich they are served.

If they want to do something useful, they can start pounding the regime about why the regime orchistrated this. We have proof that they've known that this was coming since at least January. That means that at minimum, the wheels were turning to initiate and facilitate this in October. If we didn't have a feral, criminal enterprise for a government, someone would be demanding emails about this from DHS and others going back to the Sept-Oct time frame. Unfortunately, the GOPe is assisting the criminal enterprise where it can, so you can expect them to give the regime plenty of time to 'sanitize' anything that might have been incriminating.

I have to hope that how Cochran won in MS (getting Dems to vote for him and accusing the Tea Party of racism) is not gonna go down well.

And so raise the level of pissed offedness a whole bunch.

This is a serious issue. I suggest two committees.
