Posted on 07/16/2014 2:34:11 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
A Democratic congressman accused Republicans of trying to reinstitute the whole issue of fear and drag that bloody flag of amnesty in the border crisis.
Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) told MSNBC that today President Obama will sit down with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus for the first time since the influx of illegal immigrants coming over the border reached crisis proportions and overwhelmed authorities.
I really believe there is the purpose of the meeting is now much more than original. Originally, it was to talk about our recommendations to the president that we had forward to him regarding what he can do with executive action to move forward on comprehensive immigration reform, Grijalva said. That will be discussed and thats the vitally important issue that he has constitutional and legal authority to do.
The issue of the children at the border, the children that are with us in this country right now and being taking care of, that issue and the supplemental that the president requested are tied together unfortunately, he added. And, you know, Republicans in the House and in the Senate are trying to milk this for as much of political advantage as they can.
Grijalva said the GOP is attacking Obama for imperial powers that he doesnt follow the law, then wants to change the 2008 law that allows illegal immigrants from non-contiguous countries special processing rights.
He added that Republicans arent paying attention to the problem of drug cartels in Central America because it doesnt play to tune that theyre playing out there.
Theyre trying to rave up people, reinstitute the whole issue of fear, drag that bloody flag of amnesty, the border is not secure, theres sorts of people coming over, and its a consequence, see what political advantage they get in the midterms and going it to 2016, Grijalva said.
I think the president needs to be firm, CHC, the Hispanic Caucus is going to be firm and protect these children because after all theyre children and theres a moral and legal imperative that we do that.
Too bad Butler later became a Democrat himself.
This hack thinks he’s bilingual, but he isn’t.
The Democrats are trying to hang the bloody flag of amnesty up among the rainbow-colored drapes and hoping nobody notices.
If it ISN’T amnesty, then what the hell is it?
Close the border. All it does is provide drugz.
The only Crisis the United States has is , There Is No President
What’s he complaining about?
They have de facto amnesty..................
Careful, such things are investigated as a hate crime in Maryland.
Grijalva is a despicable human being and a crappy congressman for the US but an rabid pimp for Estados Unidos Mexicanos
Grijalva is vile Hispanic Ku Klux Klan Racist.
Screw it. Let them all move into rat districts. We should encourage it.
Grijalva is one of the most despicable human beings in congress.
I have an idea! Let’s secure the border and the drugs won’t get through either!/sarc
