Boehner Appoints Anti-Amnesty Hawk Matt Salmon to Immigration ‘Working Group’
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | June 25, 2014 | Caroline May

Posted on 06/25/2014 7:03:48 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

“Let’s face it: I’ve been a thorn in leadership’s side,” says Arizona Republican Rep. Matt Salmon, sitting at his desk in the Rayburn House Office Building.

Earlier that day, Salmon had just been named by Speaker John Boehner to a special “working group” on the crisis at the southern U.S. border, where tens of thousands of unaccompanied children are streaming into the country with hopes that President Obama will grant them amnesty.

Salmon is the most conservative member of the new group, and his selection by Boehner is surprising, to say the least, given that the Arizonan has been a leading critic of House leadership.

“Probably nobody was more shocked than me, but I was pleasantly surprised,” Salmon says.

On the other side of the ledger, the group includes Florida Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, a passionate advocate for a comprehensive immigration bill, and Rep. John Carter (R-TX), who negotiated for years with liberal Democrats, including Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA), to craft an immigration bill that never saw the light of day....

This is a transparent ploy by Boner to retain support for Speaker.

Enforce existing law.

Deport illegal aliens.

Defend the border and repel invasion.

Matt is a straight shooter. He knows that this country is pretending that it is not bankrupt, and that the health, welfare and social service costs of millions and millions of illegal immigrants will only hasten the time when the reality of our national bankruptcy can no longer be hidden, but slaps this nation with a destructive force.

He is not against amnesty recently. He waffles and has become McSalmon.

Trust nothing or no one Bhoner empowers. Something goes on behind the curtain. Always. If MS checks out, great. But trust nothing blindly.

Bingo. The fix is in. It’s their last chance at amnesty.

Deport illegal aliens.

When they are found, like at a traffic stop. No need to give the Libtards talking points that we want to search out illegals.

Deport on contact. Could be a traffic stop, could be crossing the border illegally. Illegal border crossers should be thankful they are deported and not shot on sight.

Absolutely!

We just need to avoid the Torches & Pitchforks scenario the Libtards want to paint us into.

  1. secure the border in a transparently verifiable way;
  2. end the anchor-baby interpretation of the 14th Amendment;
  3. enforce eVerify without exception and with severe penalties;
  4. deportation upon contact with any law enforcement agency - federal, state or local
  5. no government benefits beyond critical emergency care (and that ought to be billed back to the home government); and
  6. NO "Path to Citizenship" - EVER - for anyone who has entered the US illegally.

Either of the above or some combo should get the job done.

Interpretation of the 14th will be difficult to change, especially with 0bama stacking the courts.

All else is fair and reasonable.

I have no problem with where they come from legally, but i think we should pick doctors and engineers, etc. rather than unskilled labors for the benefit of our country. We have plenty of documented unskilled labor as it is now.

Thank you, glad you like that. It is THE only border-illegal alien policy I will support and I will not support or discuss anything regarding legal immigration issues until that is implemented. I hope more people will join us in making that stand.

Like his election year phoney baloney lawsuit.

Its all for show while he goes along with Obama endorsing more spending, taxes and debt in the budget.

If Boehner was serious he wouldn’t waste time on a “working group”, he would be calling on Obama to repel the invasion. The House could at least pass a Resolution calling for military defense of the border.

This surrender monkey has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

Now, Flake-like reversals stain the Salmon record in Matt’s second “tour of duty” in the House. He and fellow Arizona Congressmen Paul Gosar and David Schweikert penned a mealy-mouthed missive to The Arizona Republic, chock full of poll tested bromides while keeping the door open to “Immigration Reform” —- more correctly known as amnesty.

And most recently, Salmon has become a McCain Machine Mouthpiece, calling for incumbent Attorney General Tom Horne to withdraw from the AG’s race this year, so that the hand-picked McMachine candidate — Mark Brnovich can advance, and in turn advance the establishment‘s open borders agenda.

Apart from writing the stupid oped Gosar is the most anti-amnesty of the AZ 4.

When we have an Administration that only enforces the laws that it likes and makes up new laws whenever it wants, why would any rational being think that new laws would make a difference? Laws are for the serfs. Obama and company will do whatever they want until removed from office.

Totally Agree; Please add Deport Obama, put him and all his open border democraps in a holding cell until it can be determined what country he is actually from. Then send the whole bunch with all their 5X underwear to that Country so that they can brew their own Banana Republic and 3rd world state, yes a caliphate.

Leaving it up to lawyers and judges to read simple English has caused major headaches in the (near) past; the 14th will NEVER be read ‘correctly’. Hell, the only time may vs. shall is bedrock solid is when it’s used AGAINST We the People.

As a (L), w/out the welfare state/A1S8, the rest would be moot anyway, but I guess it’s a good start....except they left out the identifying mark (tattoo??) so it’s easier to find and jail/shoot.

“Matt is a straight shooter.”

Matt was a lobbyist for the Chinese. So much so that he is supposedly fluent in Mandarin, learned in between stints as a Congressman.

He also threw a AZ Governor’s election to Napolitano in 1992. As a Mormon, McCain, and Jeff Flake collaborator, he is all for amnesty, despite anything he might be saying at the moment.
