Posted on 06/28/2014 5:07:39 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
House Speaker John Boehner and House Republican inaction on immigration reform has been an invitation for President Obama to take executive action on the matter, Democrats argued Thursday.
Since the Speaker has not brought immigration reform to the floor, he invites, clearly, the actions of the executive branch to try to do that which the Congress seems to be incapable of doing, New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez argued at a gathering of House and Senate Democrats marking the year anniversary of the passage of the Senate immigration reform bill.
Boehner and House Republicans have balked at the idea of immigration reform this year, saying they do not trust Obama to enforce any law they pass.
According to the Democratic lawmakers and the Obama administration, however, there is one month left for the House to take action on immigration reform.
A year has gone by. I dont know how much more time he thinks he needs. But I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today, and if he does not, the President will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration and he shouldn't be sued as a result of it, Illinois Sen. Richard Durbin said....

If Boehner and the Republicans are smart, they’ll force the boy’s hand and make him do it. The commie ‘RATS will never see the inside of the White Hut again.
“You must give in to my every whim and allow me to rule as a dictator. If you refuse, I shall have no other choice than to rule as a dictator.”
Yes let Obama do it. It won’t be law and they won’t be legally in the country.
The rule of law is optional with this White Hut. Unless and until congress reasserts it’s authority of the purse, I wouldn’t do a damned thing.
Our southern border is being invaded and the regime prohibits congress from taking pictures or talking to the illegal aliens, and they won’t even provide head counts or where the invaders are being shipped. It’s all out tyranny.
Uh, dimwits? From your policy "work", it's obvious you haven't read the Constitution, so I shouldn't be too hard on you, but The Won's blatherings and pen scratchings are not actually the law of the land, Paul Begala notwithstanding.
Yes, if the house doesn’t pass an amnesty bill, the prez will usurp their power and grant amnesty himself.
There can only be one outcome of this illegal alien invasion and it isn’t going to be pretty. The GOP needs to insure that Barry and the ‘RATS get ALL of the credit for what is going to happen. This is why we are hearing all of these ‘RAT threats like this. They are afraid to grant amnesty to the alien invaders. They know it’s going to get ugly.
He’s not enforcing the laws that are on the books now.
It getting ugly is good for the left, the lying propaganda media is on their side.
I guess women are raped, too, by inviting it when they show too much leg or arm or whatever else ...
That’s Democrat thinking for you.
Boehner is a jellyfish its true but the democrats can’t blame their child trafficking on him.
F**k you, Dims.
Thats not how it works, A-holes.
The Capital Wasteland.

This is the GOP’s ace in the hole. Make the Kenyan do it!
Basically, that’s exactly what this freak is saying.
i wish boner would put an immigration bill up that says ‘in honor of mexico, we think their immigration laws and enforcement of those laws are correct, and the us’govt’willadopt the current immigration laws of mexico,’and their current enforcement tactics, immediately.’
then let’s have barry sign the damn bill.
why emperor mom jeans would even think republicans would draft a bill on immigration that gives him all he wants is’arrogant lunacy. congress is not the handmaid of the executive branch.
I wonder if they want him to, since so many of them support it. This would take the heat off them, they must think. I wouldn’t put collusion past them anymore.
Sorry, you must be smokin' dope. The press would praise the action although it would be illegal as hell.
The GOP will be fine with letting the rats take the blame, that’s a win/win for them, because so many of them want it also, but it’s an election year.
No, it’s a toy light sabre. Surely you jest. But my daughter has the same exact one.
Does this mean the next Republican president gets to impose anything a democratic congress doesn’t enact? I’d start with shifting Social Security to investment accounts, and move on from there.
Exactly. The GOP need to hold their ground and let the Kenyan and his ‘RAT comrades take all the credit for this alien invasion. The illegals are going to vote for the ‘RATS anyway. That’s why the ‘RATS started their Kiddie Krusade Invasion in the first place.
Hissein doesn’t care about “legal” , he only cares about forcing his will down the nation’s throat, on any and every issue.
I wasn’t clear, I meant the the Rs would see this as a “win/win” because they want amnesty too, but this way Hussein gets the blame. That’s why I said I don’t put collusion past them.
As I said on the other thread...
Well thank God we elected a lot of lesser evils over they years who stand idly by and let him rule as a king.
Thank god that rather than fight like madmen for people of principle who would have impeached the prick years ago, we took the easy way out, made excuses to anyone who would listen and elected Democrats in GOP clothing no matter what.
Well folks, this is what what looks like when all the excuses melt away under the hot lights of reality and youre left with impotent cowards that, more likely than not, ARE democrats in DC solely to protect Dear Reader.
This is right out of the F’n Alinsky playbook.
Create a crisis and then blame your opponents.
This is F’n TREASON!
IMPEACH THIS BASTARD!
Agreed ! ..." Its all out tyranny." .. but it's being done by the Executive Branch .
Since ICE was advertizing for "ESCORTS" for unocumented aliens back in January 2014, they knew about it and implemented it.
Since Homeland INSECURITY refuses to do their job, or even track the illegals, take all expenses out of thier budget.
Since Dept. of " JUST-US" refuses to support the Law of the Land , as presently constituted, they should share the financial burden.
Please note that all of these three Departments exist out of the EXECUTIVE BRANCH
then let them financially suffer from the 'CLOWARD-PIVEN' condition that they created , and implemented !
Criminal actions demand Criminal justice.
Let them tough it out financially

This is a fundamental and completely intentional “misunderstanding” of our constitutional republic. obama is all about “his way or the highway”. He thinks he is entitled to it. He is the most “entitled” president ever to occupy the White House. He is a narcaccistic, petulant child with big ears and a mammoth racial chip on his shoulder who was given everything in his life and believes everyone owes him. What did he ever work for? NOTHING! He plays golf then comes back, washes his balls, waves his hand and demands everybody do exactly what he wants or he will write and order.
There is serious psychological disfunction going on here!
At this point can you say unequivocally that would be good?
There's no difference between Democrat and Republican at this point — the Republican party has no intention of following up on any of its party planks and is solidly infused with statist mindset.
This is a tried and true way to avoid responsibility: the congress has done this with many issues, from Abortion to the Federal Reserve they let others implement the ideas that are too toxic for them to touch and then claim that it's the other branches job/responsibility and that they just can't do anything.
Yes they have. They certainly didn’t strain any muscles to fight CommieCare, while making sure they were exempt.
Right he does not, but they still can be deported whether it’s tomorrow or after Obama leaves the Residency.
And nothing Obama can do with his 'executive actions' can change anything!
Let’s hope so.
But it’s OK for Reid to hold up every law passed by the House.
He just wants to pass amnesty so he can use it
on it on himself.
The DemocRATS are still trying to heal from their ObamaCare beating. I don’t think they could survive if their “messiah” passes amnesty with his pen and phone.
He stole it during a 2010 visit to Chappaqua. Hillary and Huma always wondered what happened to it.
What you said kind of reminds me of the fraidy rats in Massachusetts before Romney granted gay marriage in that state. The courts, who by Mass constitution could not create law to grant gay marriage, ordered the legislature to do something. The dems who control the legislature were too afraid to do anything. Uninvited and not requested by anyone, Romney stepped in and ordered the clerks to issue licenses to gays or lose their jobs.
The democrats know they will be destroyed if they issue amnesty unilaterally. They have to have a republican take the lead in amnesty like Romney did with gay marriage. Boehner does not have the fortitude to help them in an election year especially with all the troubles the GOPe has had with the TEA party. But, maybe that is why Romney keeps sounding like he would like to run in 2016.
The dems won’t do it alone. The republicans in leadership don’t have the guts. So Romney to the rescue of the dems and the illegals. Jeb Bush may also figure he can be a slightly more conservative illegal/dem savior. I’m sure of one thing, no one who gets the republican nomination will be able to say send them all back. And if the person who becomes the nominee does happen to say that, chances are they will have a change of heart between election 2016 and inauguration 2017.
Sounds like something a wife beater would say.
Thanks for the info. I think if the GOP would only stand fast, amnesty will go nowhere. IMHO. The ‘RATS are afraid to do it and are trying to shame the GOP into passing it. I wish they’d realize that.
I sadly must agree with you.
The MSM would be shouting from the rooftops what a noble person The Won is and how unfeeling, uncaring the Pubs are. O was forced to do this...forced I tell ya.
Somehow I think we just got checkmated again.
Makes sense. Boner gets everything he wants. Obama gets everything he wants. And the whole situation gets blames on republicans. Obama doesn’t have to do anything to pin this on Republicans because the repubs are ball less cowards.
It’s one thing to use Executive Orders to fill in the gaps where things are very unclear - but he is wanting to simply have a new law granting amnesty where that issue was addressed by Reagan and Congress actually working together - a one time accommodation that was to have been followed by stricter enforcement and a more secure border.
The absolute abrogation of his oath of office to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution” is galling. He is not executing the Office of President - he has become an absolute dictator with the willing collusion of the Democrat controlled Senate. The Supreme Court has been knocking him back fairly consistently, with even the liberal Justices joining in to some degree. Let him take another unconstitutional action and let the Supreme Court provide another final decision against him. Some of the decisions have been rather narrow but it is clear that even the lib’s have had enough, and the one thing they will try to preserve is three branches of Government with some check on the Executive.

So would that be the same thing as not having enough money in my bank account being an invitation for me to rob the bank to get the amount of money I’d really like to have?
