Skip to comments.PAUL RYAN SUGGESTS GOP CANDIDATES IN MIDTERMS SHOULD RUN ON GIVING ILLEGALS CITIZENSHIP
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.

I don’t think these morons want to have a majority. What the hell is this?
No wonder Mitt chose him.
So they could turn around and vote your ass out.
LOL yeah that’s a sure fire winner.
He had potential but I forgot what is was...
Now, he’s just an annoyance.
“...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....”
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.
Mitt Romney: Illegal immigrants should have path to citizenship
Running on giving the illegals Mexican Citizenship?
Of course he does
this is one reason Willard picked him to be VP
Willard pushed AMNESTY for years...
“We cant send them all back”
“We must find a pathway for citizenship”
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.
The GOP has no shortage of fools, I see.
Ryan can take a permanent hike.
the GOP must be SOS....stuck on stupid.
For crying out loud . When is the GOP going to understand why they lose ?
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....
Please sit down, shut up, and go away, Paul Ryan!
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.
Since I’m 1/4 Irish, Paul Ryan has left me no choice but to substitute “Labrador retriever” for “Irish” from now on.
Right after they all return to their home countries and get in line.
Has Ryan been taking some of Rand Paul’s crazy pills?
Not one dime’s worth of difference.
“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.”
Well Bless his Little Heart!!! He can Kiss my A** and go to Hell.
How about a pathway to citizenship for him in Mexico!!
Yes...what you said.
It seems like a million years ago that we were all excited by the Romney’s choice of a running mate. It seems so surreal now.
I suggest that PR srould fix the budget.
I suggest that PR should fix the budget.
Paul Ryan (D) Unicorn Land
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.
—How is that different from current law on the books?
Ryan didn’t lose to Joe Biden... To be more precise, he lost to Joe Biden’s white teeth.

see Senore’ Ryan,
the optimum word here is ILLEGALS.
Course you and baboso’s like you only want to keep wages down so you want a never ending supply of cheep labor.
Senore’ Ryan, I was fooled in to voting for my Senator Rubio.
I will NOT be fooled by clowns and RINO’s like you again.
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.
Bye bye, Ron.
Don’t let the door hit you in the ass as you GET THE HELL OUT!!
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.
Process, not prices.
“How about a pathway to citizenship for him in Mexico!!”
Agreed but what abaou tthe corporatists who arwe supporting Ryan
Maybe it is time we supported taxes on them. Maybe a lot of them. You sell out and stab us in the bck then you shell out.
Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory again
Paul ryan now in the ranks of Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Rand Paul.
People who looked like promising conservatives at one time but turned into horrible disappointments that people like me could never ever vote for.
Put a fork in Ryan. He’s done.
But I thought there were already democrats running for the mid terms? Why don’t these wanna be’s just go ahead and officially change their party affiliation to demonrat, I mean who do they think they are fooling?
By the same token, can Americans import undocumented firearms from a foreign country... and receive amnesty?
Dear GOP, please lose this next election.
