PAUL RYAN SUGGESTS GOP CANDIDATES IN MIDTERMS SHOULD RUN ON GIVING ILLEGALS CITIZENSHIP
Breitbart ^ | Aug 21, 2014 | By Tony Lee

Posted on 08/21/2014 10:13:39 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) suggested that Republican candidates in this year's midterm elections should run on granting a pathway to citizenship for all of the country's illegal immigrants.

Ryan, who had reportedly been working behind the scenes with Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) to get House Republicans to support a broader immigration bill, said that he was "having problems" convincing conservatives to support immigration reform, which he said was "very important."

In a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg News, Ryan said he supported a "path to legalization" for all of the country's illegal immigrants. He said illegal immigrants should be able to "earn citizenship" after they go to the back of the line and not cut in front of legal immigrants.

When asked if he was saying that if illegal immigrants "do a series of things," they "can stay here legally forever," Ryan replied, "They can always get a work permit that is renewed indefinitely." When asked if he would "like to see Republican candidates run on that in this election cycle," Ryan replied, "I'm putting it right here in my book."

A plurality of Americans in multiple national polls have said they would be less likely to vote for candidates who support amnesty legislation.

*****************************************************************************************

Ryan is a duplicitous useful idiot of the GOPe. Guess what Paul, the “line” begins in the illegal aliens’ home countries at the US embassy. And there are certain rules/laws that must be met. Let the illegals go to the back of those lines; no change in the law is needed for that.

Does Paul Ryan really want to add this to his resume considering his most recent accomplishments?

Namely:

  1. Snookered into making a deal with the dumbest member of the U.S. Senate, Patty Bin Murray.
  2. Lost a vice-presidential debate to Joe Biden.

The “path to citizenship” leads to a bridge going south over the Rio Grande.

Paul Ryan needs a pathway to and citizenship in someplace like Bolivia where he can enjoy diversity and cheap labor instead of inflicting it on the rest of us.

Just when you think they can’t say anything more idiotic, they prove us wrong. I hope he runs in 2016, right alongside Romney, Christie, Jeb and any other delusional moderate. Split their money and votes.......seems to work....

Thank you for your input, Mr. Ryan, now please return to the faceless grey world of economists and bean counters, where you obviously feel comfortable in. We need your brains for math, but we don’t need your advice on how to run the country.

I don't know for sure, but I think people, including myself, saw him as a policy wonk with a youthful energy that could bring about some conservative reforms.

But he just stinks.

Right after they all return to their home countries and get in line.

You think Paul Ryan is going to lose? He’s a permanent member of the ruling class. If conservatives win, and government shrinks, his people will be out of power.

When I read something like this it makes me wonder whether the person saying it is being an idiot by trying to be too smart by a half.

A “go to the back of the line” path to citizenship is a poison pill non-starter for the Democrats. Makes me think that Ryan is suggesting something he knows will never happen in order to peel off certain ethnic groups (Indians, Asians, legal Hispanics) who support immigration reform so long as the illegals don’t get to cut to the front of the line of a long, difficult and expensive prices.

That would seeming be a political win-win, use a poison pill to reposition the Democrats as being the extremists who are killing “reasonable” immigration reform.
