Dreamers Stage Gop 'Funeral' In Congress: 'Republican Party Is Dead To Us'
Breitbart ^ | 07/22/2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 07/22/2014 7:12:15 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

On Monday, DREAMers stormed the halls of Congress to stage a "GOP funeral" in front of the offices of Republican senators, some of whom have expressed concerns that President Barack Obama's unilateral grants of temporary amnesty have caused the current border crisis.

Pro-amnesty activists from United We Dream dressed in black and marched around with a mock casket that had these words emblazoned on it: "RIP GOP." They held flowers and started chanting and singing, "We shall overcome."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has said Obama should not award temporary amnesty to DREAMers in the future because the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program only encourages smugglers and cartels to exploit more illegal immigrant children. And the DREAMers targeted his office, along with those of other senators, while yelling, "Enough is enough!"

"We are here to say the Republican Party is dead to us," a spokesperson for United We Dream declared in the halls of Congress. "We can't let DACA disappear for our community."

I want my English language back. These are not “Dreamers”, they are not even “undocumented immigrants” - they are illegal aliens.

And while it doesn’t seem likely, this could be the rebirth of the Republican party, not its funeral.

DREAMERS STAGE GOP 'FUNERAL' IN CONGRESS: 'REPUBLICAN PARTY IS DEAD TO US'

So F*****g what! These "Dreamers" should not be voting and should be deported! If the GOP wants to survive they will do that instead of kowtowing to king Hussein!

Exactly. I yell that every time I read a story about immigration. Stop using loaded BS terms like "Dreamers." Send them the "f" back to Mexico or where ever they came from. Stop asking me to pay for all kinds of government benes for them out of my taxes. Enough is enough.

You are assuming that the GOPe is willing to enforce the immigration laws and not just try to out-pander the Rats.

Sadly, the GOP is more or less dead to us conservatives too. But even more sad is the GOP Establishment probably sees this ridiculous “mock funeral” put on by the pro-illegal alien crowd and tell each other behind closed doors: “OMG! We’re losing the illegals!! We’ve got to do SOMETHING!!”

I said it didn’t seem likely. Unfortunately most of the Republican party is swimming in cash from Chamber-of-Commerce and corporate interests who want our nation flooded with cheap workers.

Some voters are waking up, the fall midterms could be a chance to at least slow the bleeding.

RE: Isn’t it amazing they could get all that past security?

Let us remind ourselves that there is a Filipino illegal immigrant ( who won the Pulitzer by the way ) named Jose Antonio Vargas who OPENLY TELLS THE WORLD that he is here illegally.

Guess what? NOTHING HAPPENS TO HIM.

Given how popular the "Dreamers" are becoming across the country this may to be the best thing to happen to the GOP in years.

Which they really don't deserve.

Our local news radio this morning reported that “several state residents are protesting today an effort to relocate some migrant children to their area, counter protesters say blah blah blah...”

No spokesperson from the state residents got to have a say in the report, no location mentioned in case anyone was interested in getting involved.

Sanitized news, so only one side gets attention, just like this story.

There were hundreds of protests this past weekend, did any of it make the news? I don’t know, because I refuse to watch any of them now.

The joke is on the illegal aliens if they think I’m going to continue working and paying taxes to clean up the mess they are making of this country. How much it will take to ‘restore’ this country to the 2006 level? That’s just more than I’m willing to ‘invest’ just to put it back just for them to ‘reclaim’ largess they believe they are due.

The Dreamers are going to have to work a lot harder than that. In fact, they're "dreaming" if they think I'll just roll over and vote for anyone with an "R" after their name.

So if by “dreamers” we mean illegal aliens, they are not citizens of this country, they are not theoretically allowed to vote, why should anyone care what they think?
If this is supposed to be some threat concerning the latino vote, they have always block voted Democrat so why should anyone care what they think?

Ahhh there’s the word — THEORETICALLY.

But what about IN PRACTICE?

New York City has just passed a law to allow undocumented aliens to get MUNICIPAL ID’s so that they will become documented.

And no, we don’t have a voter ID requirement

So, What comes after that?

THE HATE-AMERICA FIESTA CONTINUES "Third World president Obama" praised his buddies in Mexico and Guatemala for forging an agreement that would facilitate emptying out their villages---allowing even more of the haters into the US.

The hate-filled Dreamers have no other aspiration but to board the US gravy train----they don't even mind sucking off the backs of the Republicans they despise.

Obama's gonna tap out our Treasury and send Mexico even more foreign aid" to help the federales guide more Dreamers over the border. In fact the entire US govt is sucking up---lining up the Dreamer for a fellate-a-thon on the Capitol steps.

At a Senate hearing WRT the swarm at the border, US Ambassador Thomas A. Shannon, Dept of State counsellor sucked-up bigtime----he told US senators "Mexico's Southern border strategy with Guatemala was a welcome step towards improving Mexico’s ability to exercise greater control along its border with Guatemala and Belize."

(waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)

Hugo Chavez taught Obama a little trick---if you dont have the votes to win, you import them from neighboring countries.

All you have to do is promise the greedy honchos foreign aid and "remittances"...... and they'll glady empty out their villages.

Yup.

The important thing about a stunt like this is that the underlying premise has to be believable.

In this case the underlying premise is that the activists would vote, or even consider voting, Republican.

They won’t. Ever. And exit polls from 2012 showed that the larger Hispanic community’s #1 issue wasn’t immigration. It was their support for Obamacare.

IOW this protest is just obnoxious and irrelevant noise.
