As House Republican lawmakers scramble  to pass an "emergency border spending bill" to address the so-called "immigration crisis"  the border, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid indicated he would likely try to convert any House-passed legislation into an amnesty billThe Hill reported.

Reid said that if the House passes the $659 million bill -- which is up for a vote Thursday afternoon -- which will include changes to the law to speed up deportation of illegal minors, he may tie it to the "Gang of Eight" package passed in the Senate last year that would grant amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens already in the country.

"If they pass that, maybe it's an opening for us to have a conference on our comprehensive immigration reform. If they're finally sending us something on immigration, maybe we can do that," Reid told reporters Tuesday, according to The Hill.

Hopefully that Ebola epidemic ends up in DC. It’s already a disease ridden cesspool. It’s overrun by cockroaches and disgusting vermin.

Reid is a criminal. Whoever protects him are criminals. Everyone who works for him are criminals. Arrest all of them.

I continue to wonder if Harry isn’t purposely poisoning the well in a manner that makes it look like he is supporting Obama even though the reality is he’s thwarting him.

By saying what Harry said now, he is pretty much guaranteeing the House won’t send anything..

Brilliant.

He is playing to the illegal aliens. He tells them that the Rats are going to give them amnesty but the mean old Republicans won’t go along.

Has to go back to the House.
Process is that the Senate will amend the bill with Immigration “Reform” (amnesty), pass it, NS send it to the Conference Committee.
From there the revised bill will go back to the House. Bonehead won’t be able to keep the House from voting on it. The RINOs and Democrats will vote for it and *ping* we have amnesty.

That’s exactly what Harry wants. That way, it will give Obama cover to issue executive orders on legalization of millions of illegals, since we have a “do nothing congress”

Is there not a real life Mitch Rapp that could pay a visit to Harry’s suite in the D.C. Ritz-Carleton some night?

Poor Harry...so much to do and so little brain power to devote to the task. Go back to Searchlight Harry. There is a hooker or two who still remembers how you gave her a start and maybe will throw in a freebie if you ask her nicely.

Check this photo of Woody Allen (another jerk) - he and Harry Reid look like twin toads;)

I also find that John Boehner resembles Humphrey Bogart - wish he were as tough as Bogey.... not dead:(
