    All undeclared and declared Republican presidential candidates are on record as to having supported or still supporting "comprehensive immigration reform" or a "pathway to citizenship", which is of course, AMNESTY: - Ted Cruz: Sen. Ted Cruz also supports temporary legalization status in the immigration bill - Sarah Palin, 2008: When asked if she supported “a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants,” Palin responded that she did. - Scott Walker: Yes, Gov. Walker supported a path to citizenship - Mike Huckabee: Mike Huckabee supports amnesty for illegal aliens - Chris Christie: Chris Christie supports amnesty for illegal aliens - Marco Rubio:...

    Now that a federal judge has held Obama's illegal executive amnesty unconstitutional, perhaps U.S. senators will remember that they swore to uphold the Constitution, too. Back when they needed our votes before the last election, Republicans were hairy-chested warriors, vowing to block Obama's unconstitutional "executive amnesty" -- if only voters gave them a Senate majority. The resulting Republican landslide suggested some opposition to amnesty. Heading into the election, college professor Dave Brat took out the sitting House majority leader and amnesty supporter Eric Cantor in a primary, despite being outspent 40-1. It was the greatest upset in history since the...
  • ‘Hard-liner’ Rep. Steve King becomes GOP’s voice on immigration

    UK Progressive ^ | December 7, 2014
    Prominently featured on Representative Steve King’s congressional website are what he calls “illegal immigration stories” that tell of undocumented people, mainly Hispanics, wreaking havoc in America: killing, robbing, kidnapping, trafficking in sex and drugs. As the face of the opposition to comprehensive immigration legislation in Congress, King has long used fiery rhetoric to argue for deporting all 12 million undocumented residents and fortifying U.S. borders. Now, the Iowa congressman’s high-profile role in the debate over President Barack Obama’s executive order on immigration threatens Republican leaders’ efforts to rebrand the party as more friendly to Hispanics, while his effort to block...

    In a lengthy interview on Friday afternoon, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) exposed how House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise strengthened President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty with procedural trickery former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber would envy—and they did it all in the name of pushing a bill that they told Republicans would block Obama’s executive amnesty. What’s more is that a series of interviews and recent developments indicate that Boehner’s gambit here is placing several of his top lieutenants—including at least two committee chairmen—at political risk of serious primary challenges...
  • John Boehner: Screwing the American People

    Now that he feels secure that he will have another term as Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner is going full liberal on America. He is preparing to push an Amnesty bill through the House next year. He has completely abandoned any attempt to repeal, replace or even reduce Obamacare. And he is spending money like a drunken Democrat. From The Hill: House conservatives are griping that Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is putting the squeeze on them by rushing through a $1 trillion spending bill in Congress’s last week in session. Appropriators are expected to roll out the...

    House Republicans, coming up with every excuse under the sun to avoid stopping President Obama, are letting slip the real reason. Congressman Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX)69%69%, chairman of the House Rules Committee, is telling Democratic lawmakers he wants total amnesty. The Daily Caller reports Sessions met with Democratic lawmakers telling them how expansive his vision of immigration is before Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)N/AN/A announced the GOP would give up the fight on immigration. More details are here. It is more and more obvious the only way the GOP will stop Obama is if House conservatives hold the line and oppose...

    The House on Thursday voted to bar the executive branch from deferring the deportation of undocumented workers, taking its first direct action against President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. The 219-197 vote was largely symbolic as the measure is headed for certain death in the Senate, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has said he won't take up the legislation. The White House has also threatened to veto the measure. The vote on legislation sponsored by Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) is intended to help Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) move a bill next week that would fund most of the...

    The Yoho bill is not designed to block Obama's use of federal monies to carry out his unlawful amnesty. The Yoho bill is designed to dupe Republicans into thinking Boehner has attempted to block Obama's use of federal monies to carry out his unlawful amnesty. It is designed to trick the Stupid American Voter. As usual. This has court implications as well. Boehner supposedly will sue the Administration over its power-grabs. However, Congress has the power itself to delimit executive overrreach -- through its power of the purse, of course. The Supreme Court may very well decline to hear any...

    Press reports say House Speaker John Boehner will ask Rep. Nancy Pelosi to help him overcome “snowballing” GOP opposition to the GOP leadership’s draft 2015 government budget bill.Boehner’s draft bill funds the entire government for 2015, but makes merely token efforts to stop President Barack Obama’s agencies from implementing his unpopular amnesty, according to rank-and-file GOP legislators.That claim of snowballing opposition was boosted early Wednesday evening, when aides to House Speaker John Boehner said they would change their funding bill to reduce the number of months of funding for Obama’s immigration agencies.Late Wednesday night, the Washington Post reported that top...

    House Speaker John Boehner’s top committee chairman says he wants an immigration bill that would allow millions of foreign migrants to stay and work jobs sought by Americans. “I’m going to use my assets and resources in the new year to work with this Congress… to have a well-understood agreement about what the law should be, and how we as communities, and farm communities, and tech communities, create circumstances where we can have people be in this country and work, and where not one person is quote ‘thrown out’ or ‘deported,’” said Rep.

    Rep. Joe Barton said Friday he was close to introducing a sweeping proposal that would overhaul the nation’s immigration system. The plan will include a path to citizenship for undocumented children and a mechanism to give legal status to adults in the country illegally who have not committed other crimes. Barton, R-Arlington, said his bill would be ready in a month to six weeks.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he believes some type of amnesty legislation could pass this year. Appearing at Harvard's Institute of Politics, Paul again said that he voted against the Senate's immigration bill because there were not enough visas for construction and farm workers and said he still thought "something could be passed this year" on immigration. Legislation has stalled after Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the House GOP leadership's "immigration principles" as amnesty. Paul then told the Harvard students that about 40% of illegal immigrants came to the country legally. Though many of these now...

    A new poll by the Washington Post shows that amnesty is a vote-loser for GOP legislators. The poll of 1,002 adults shows that pluralities of independents and moderates oppose candidates who support amnesty, which was euphemistically dubbed “a path to citizenship” by the poll designers. The poll showed that 41 percent of independents and 37 percent of moderates were less likely to vote for an amnesty-backer. Read more:

    House Republicans looking to garner support for leadership's immigration-reform principles are about to get a little help from a group with ties to Mark Zuckerberg. Americans for a Conservative Direction is the GOP arm of pro-immigration reform organization, which is backed by the Facebook chief executive. And they will be airing roughly $750,000 worth of television and radio ads across the country, according to a source with knowledge of the ad buy. The ads, which will air for 10 days on radio and cable television, describe the drafted principles unveiled to the Republican Conference during their retreat as a...

    An immigrant-rights group on Tuesday escalated pressure on President Barack Obama to use his executive power to halt deportations — just days after he seemed to crack the door open on that option. The National Day Laborer Organizing Network filed a 41-page petition on Tuesday arguing that the administration has “extremely broad and virtually unreviewable discretion” on how to proceed with deportations. It urges Obama to shield undocumented immigrants who would “likely benefit from near-term congressional action on immigration” from deportation and grant them the ability to work in the United States. “Suspending the deportation of these individuals promotes the...

    Americans for a Conservative Direction, an affiliate of the Silicon Valley-backed advocacy group, on Friday launched a remarkable $750,000 ad campaign heaping praise on the House GOP for its new plan for immigration reform. President Barack Obama signaled Friday in a Google Hangout interview that he was open to the GOP terms, meaning reform is looking more likely than it did a week ago. The 10-day buy includes national broadcast TV and cable TV, plus talk radio. The ad, produced by FP1 Strategies, ends with type on the screen saying: “HOUSE REPUBLICANS WANT TO FIX IMMIGRATION – STRENGTHEN OUR...

    Culberson explains power to stop 'most illegal, unlawful president' ever The Democrat plan to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. can be thwarted, despite apparent wavering by House Republican leadership, contends a Texas congressman. In an interview with Michael Savage on his “Savage Nation” nationally syndicated show Friday, Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, insisted, furthermore, that if President Obama tries to advance amnesty or any other initiative through illegal executive orders, he can be stopped, because the House holds the purse strings and can cut off funding for actions that can’t be justified legally. “The power of...

    House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, one of the top proponents for bringing a major immigration reform bill to the House floor this year, raised serious doubts about the likelihood of such legislation in remarks on ABC's This Week. Ryan also provided greater detail about how the GOP's approach might be structured. Referring to provisions to increase border security and interior security, Ryan said “those things have to be in law, in practice, and independently verified before the rest of the law can occur. So it's a security-first non-amnesty approach.” That statement is important because it implies key details about...
  • Did Showdown Kill Boehner's Immigration Dreams?

    Immigration is the zombie of political issues--even when it is dead, it is still alive. The combination of the Democratic Party, business interests, and a GOP operative class yearning for its promise of improved standing with Hispanic voters means that you can never really count it out. That said, it is hard to imagine Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) moving forward after yesterday's closed-door showdown. According to estimates from those who were in the room--both in favor of moving forward and against--the dozens of GOP lawmakers who spoke were at least 80-20 against bringing a bill to the floor this year....
