Sen. Durbin: ‘Fed Up’ with House GOP Criticizing Admin over Immigration (VIDEO)
Mediaite ^ | July 6 2014 | Evan McMurry

Posted on 07/06/2014 9:35:57 AM PDT by PoloSec

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) told Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer Sunday morning that he’d had enough of congressional Republicans criticizing the Obama administration over immigration policies when they’d refused to take up the bipartisan immigration reform bill passed by the Senate last year.

“I am really getting fed up with some of the critics of this administration, particularly from House Republicans,” Durbin said. “They had the opportunity for one solid year to call the immigration reform bill, and yet they refused to. Now they’re arguing we need more enforcement at the borders and a lot of other things? When are they going to accept their responsibility to govern?”

Just a few minutes before, Schieffer had asked Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) how it felt to be members of a party that refused to act; both said President Barack Obama’s alleged preference for executive actions made bringing aboard House GOP members more difficult.

Stand up GOP.

Stop the illegal immigration flood.

Now. America needs borders. Real borders.

This is a very large issue. Stand up now.

I am completely fed up with the idiot Dick Durbin thinking he is so brilliant that there’s no aspect of human activity he can’t run — from credit card fees to medical insurance and everything in between.

His support of a traitor and dictator like Obama would have earned him a richly deserved coat of tar and feathers had he lived in colonial America.

Thank goodness for gridlock with liberal dolts like Turban Durbin in office. I loathe his sanctimonious unctuousness.

I am fed up with the inability of Republicans to expose democrats and their accomplices in the media. How hard can it be? Existing laws on the books are not being followed. The administration is encouraging people to break the law and then prohibiting agents from complying with the laws. Until that is done why even discuss new laws?

When are they going to accept their responsibility to govern?”

Turn to your President Mr. Durbin and ask the same question. Rule of law or rule of man.

“Prosecutorial discretion” has been transformed into “enforcement discretion” is the reason the House will not bother to entertain any new immigration laws.

Wait.
Whatever happened to Hillary saying, “I’m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

So how many diseased children illegals has little dick Durbin taken in and treated and housed and fed, personally? ... Yeah, zero. But he would point a gun in our faces and tell us to do it in a heartbeat. Men like him are the enemy within, destroying the we the people Republic in service to the hidden oligarchs who own little dickey durbin.

“If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no concern for human beings,” Turban Durbin

Apparently, Senator Dick needs a civics class. It isn’t the job of Congress to just pass the President’s agenda because he wants it. (Remember 1981-1992 and 2001-2008, Senator Dick??)

Sen Durbin and others are themselves to blame, for refusing to vote for true “immigration reform” minus amnesty for illegal migrants, because in fact they have no interest, particularly no political interest in any true immigration reforms OTHER THAN amnesty for illegal migrants.

It is THEIR one note immigration song that has killed true immigration law reforms and killed any passage of any true immigration law reforms.

Durban has already joined with Illinois R’s to prohibit any ‘migrant centers’ in their state. Which this news source fails to mention.

Perhaps you are under the mistaken impression that the media, which has whored itself to the hidden oligarchs and works for the DNC agenda, would broadcast such a big mouth opposed to the little dickey durbin types?

I have a modest proposal for Durbin and the Democrats: Let's start actually enforcing the immigration laws currently on the books for a few years and find out whether they work. Let's close the border with Mexico and see what happens.

How can you seek reform when you don't even know if the current laws work, since they have never been implemented and enforced?

So Dick Durbin, who says President can borrow Constitutional rights from Congress, is whining about the rising tide of criticism against the Usurper in the White Hut? Cry me a river, you fascist pig anti-American Commie. And then ESAD.

OLD FAITHFUL DURBIN'S STILL IN LOCKSTEP Will his constituents fall into line with Durbin's loyalty oath to der leader?

JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER TO DURBIN VOTERS As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act:

QUOTING OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have choice of doctor.”

Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.

SEN. RICHARD DURBIN WEIGHS IN: “We Democrats believe — and we stand by this — if you like your current health insurance plan, you will be able to keep it, plain and simple, straightforward.” (Sen. Durbin, Congressional Record, S.6401, 6/10/09)

More and more proof that Abe was right.. the aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus psycho spoiled brats and their bratty ideological litters are upon us. The fault is ours. Abe explained from "the other side."

You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

Funny you should mention that. A news article yesterday reported that Durbin and a republican guy from Illinois were blocking the insertion of a load of illegal aliens into some area in their state.

He’s all for immigration “reform” as long as he can carve out a nice exemption for himself, while castigating the Supreme Court for “carving out an exemption” for religious groups slimed by obamacare.
