Boehner indicates no room for Ted Cruz border plan in House bill
The Blaze ^ | Jul. 24, 2014 1:20pm | Pete Kasperowicz

Posted on 07/24/2014 3:54:00 PM PDT by SoConPubbie

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated Thursday that the House will not be considering legislative language to defund President Barack Obama’s deferred deportation policy, which some Republicans want to see as a condition of approving new funding to ease the crisis at the southern U.S. border.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has said he wants to see Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy defunded, and says that policy is precisely why about 60,000 illegal immigrant children have tried to cross into the U.S. this year.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) proposed a House version of that bill just this week. She told TheBlaze that Republicans need to use the leverage they have over Obama on immigration to push for an end to DACA.

But Boehner told reporters that he’s focused on passing proposals that a GOP working group on immigration came up with this week, which don’t include the Cruz-Blackburn idea.

“I’m focused on the recommendations of our border control working group, and we’re operating within those guidelines,” Boehner said.

Boehner’s comments indicate he could have trouble drumming up GOP support for any bill GOP leaders try to move. Many Republicans say DACA is a major cause of the flood of immigrant children, and must be reversed — otherwise, Congress will only be throwing more money at a problem that will continue to grow.

The border bill already appears to be stalled, as Boehner told reporters that Obama’s resistance to changing a key immigration law has created a real stumbling block in Congress.

The immigration principles released by Boehner’s working group include measures like changing the law to allow for faster deportations of children, sending the National Guard to the border, and several other steps.

Boehner IS the problem.

Call your Pubbie Rep about this....Cruz' idea or NOTHING!

If the cartels continue to get a foothold in the US and start chopping off heads of reporters and policemen and corrupt our police forces it will rest squarely on Boehner, Obama, Pelosi, Reed, McConnell and all the other RINO traitors in Congress. The democrats want our country to look like Mexico.

AT ALL COSTS, a conference committee on ANYTHING related to “immigration reform” must be avoided as long as the DemocRATS control the Senate and the designation of conferees.

I also wouldn’t trust the UNTRUSTWORTHY Boehner to name conferees.

I can’t put into print what I’m thinking.

Someone tell me again how the GOPe is better than the Democrats. /S

Boehner is a filthy traitor. (And that’s a heck of a ping list).

I like Mark Levin's plan, but I'd be happy with Cruz's plan to defund the DACA too.

Bite me, Boehner!

There is no, and has never been any, REASON TO SUPPORT THE
GOP. THE GOP supports Obama 110% and is complicit.

Boehner and the GOP have declared WAR on Americans
as they SLEEP with al Qaeda and terrorists,
and as they QUARTER incurable diseases in all 50 states.

THIS IS Fort Sumter X 50.

“what?”

Are you really surprised? Boehner’s waiting for haley barbour to tell him what to do. haley used to work for Mexico and probably co-opted and corrupted the Chamber of Commerce.
