Skip to comments.GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen: Paul Ryan Works 'Every Day' toward Amnesty Bill
Posted on 08/11/2014 10:44:05 AM PDT by cotton1706
One of the 11 House Republicans La Raza praised for not voting to end President Barack Obama's temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrants revealed that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has been working "every day" behind the scenes on an amnesty bill.
In a Friday appearance on MSNBC's Jose Diaz-Balart, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) predicted that Congress is "going to be passing an immigration bill" in the future, "thanks to your brother, Mario Diaz-Balart."
"Mario and Paul Ryan and good leaders are working every day toward that, and we hope that it will happen," she said.
Ros-Lehtinen and other members of the GOP earned La Raza's praise for voting against the border bill that would have denied Obama the right to use federal funds to implement temporary amnesty.
Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), whom Ros-Lehtinen referenced, was reportedly "ready to announce to House leaders that a majority of House Republicans supported his immigration reform bill," and secured "soft commitments from at least 120 Republicans." Ryan was reportedly working with Diaz-Balart to get support for his bill, which would have allowed Republicans to bring it to the floor and then vote against it, enabling it to pass with Democrat support.
After House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted because of his support for amnesty, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told President Obama that he would not bring up an immigration bill in the House this year. Though Boehner said he wanted to get an amnesty bill through in the next Congress, Diaz-Balart asked House leaders to give his bill one more chance this year before being denied.

FReep You Paul Ryan (FUPR)!!
“Paul Ryan (R-WI) has been working “every day” behind the scenes on an amnesty bill”
Of that I have no doubt.
Do those things and illegal aliens will deport themselves and pay for the trip.
No discussion, no debate and no quarter until you do that.
of course he does. Mommy says if we be real nice to the mexicans, they will vote for us in 2016.....
They simply don’t care what we think. The gop has figured out what the democrats count on every election. “If you don’t like us, where’re you gonna’ to go?” I’m not going anywhere. That means I’m not going to the polls.
A long time ago and man told me “I don’t vote. It just encourages the sons of bitches.” He was so right.
And to think he was a vice presidential candidate!
Bought and paid for.
“...Ros-Lehtinen and other members of the GOP earned La Raza’s praise ...”
Soooo.... lemme get this straight, here...
Working against your own people, to get the praise of a radical, racist, leftwing organization like La Raza is a GOOD thing...
...While ignoring what well over 75% of your own people have said they want, ignoring the best interests of your own Country and it’s future well-being, , that’s somehow bad ...
Not to mention ignoring the fact that a Leader of your own party (Cantor) just had his byootocks and walking papers handed to him in a primary over the SAME thing...
Ok. I get it.
Dontcha just love this Brave New World?
FUPR indeed. Well said.
These people forgot who they are suppose to work for
Maybe he should run for President of Mexico
The Senators that are agreeing to amnesty have sold their souls to the Devil for 30 pieces of silver for the short term goal of being re-elected by the Latino vote. What they fail to realize is that as soon as the Latinos go to college and become attorneys on taxpayer money they will begin seeking office to replace the enablers who are viewed as weak and spineless because they caved.
The Latinos will begin replacing them at a record pace once they get started and begin removing them en masse. All of the former Congressmen will by shunned by both the people they betrayed and the people that ousted them.
Early on in the first term of the first Mexican presidency they will begin having massive deficits and realize they are truly running out of money because they are only collecting taxes from less than 35 % of the population because it is always the white man’s job to pay taxes. Many white men will have lost their jobs and have to resort to doing menial labor usually reserved for Latinos.There will be a turnaround where the white men will be doing the hard labor and the Latinos will become the supervisors.
Buildings and roads will fall into ruin due to the cash flow problems.
Chaos will result when welfare programs are suspended due to lack of funding.
The U.S. will begin descending into 3rd world country status.
All of this because of spineless traitors who sold their country out for brown votes and failed to stand up to a Muslim traitor president whose job was to intentionally bring about the destruction of United States of America.
Check out Paul Ryan’s donors (like billionaire Sheldon Adelson) and then you will know why he is an imbecile on illegal immigration. Its all about campaign donations....and Ryan tilting this way already. The donations-money solidified this predisposition
Plus his early mentor was Jack Kemp. Another idiot with a few redeeming features but big negatives on immigration/legal/illegal
I cannot stand Paul Ryan. He turned out to be a negative on the republican ticket.
He could not even stand up to Joe Biden.
“We called our baby bean because it looked like a bean.” He was an embarrassment in the debate.
Paul Ryan will never be part of the solution. He’s part of the problem.
Anyone who thinks otherwise is..., er...stupid.
Yes Ryan has turned out to be a major disappointment.
Even if the Republicans were 100% responsible for giving them everything they want, the Media would make sure the Democrats take credit for it, thus erasing any semblance of a political advantage.
All of this vote stalking while ignoring the law and the Constitution is despicable and I'm sick of it.
“These people forgot who they are suppose to work for”
They work for corporate interests and the Chamber of Amnesty. The GOPe is now fully run by special interests on K-Street.
Cut from the same cloth as the Rube. Another faux conservative turned Republican elite. How many have now crossed over to the other side? Too many to count. Cruz seems to be the One most likely when the time comes. Tis a shame out of the white hats elected, so few remain.
