Skip to comments.Boehner voices support for emerging House immigration deal
Posted on 03/19/2013 11:42:24 AM PDT by AuntB
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday voiced support for the work of a secretive bipartisan immigration coalition in the House, but he said Republican lawmakers must be educated on the issue before legislation can advance.
A group of eight lawmakers four Republicans and four Democrats has been meeting privately for years to craft a comprehensive immigration overhaul, and they told Boehner and other Republican leaders last week that they were close to a deal.
He also refused, as he has before, to weigh in on the contentious question of a path to citizenship for the illegal immigrants now in the U.S.
The House group has received less attention than its counterpart in the Senate, which announced an agreement on principles for immigration reform in January and is hoping to release a full legislative text in the coming weeks.
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) on Tuesday said the negotiators were very close to a deal, which he said would include a pathway to citizenship.
"I don't want to go into specifics, that's for them to announce," Hoyer added, saying he expected them to share the plan in the near term.[SNIP}

I assure you, I will support his ouster.
Add to that no free schooling for their kids and no healthcare or any kind of welfare assistance. If you don’t do that they will keep coming because the border will never be secured. Its not going to happen.
I am more than familiar with LBJ and old George Parr for all of that back then happened at Box 13 here in Alice when I was a youth. As a matter of fact, my dad was an assistant DA here back then and was very active on the case.
We lived in the better part of town and one day we were all amazed to see the Texas Rangers come and arrest our neighbor across the street one day. He was the county registrar for Jim Wells County. Mr. Martins....I will never forget the day.
Old LBJ changed the welfare program from rice and beans to top of the line Angus Rib-eye steaks.
Agree completely. You didnt mention that family chain migration which will be a part of any reform despite what is touted will allow half of Mexico to colonize us. All by design in the works for decades. Americans have been played for suckers. My generation and the youth will have to learn the hard way - gonna end up with an American Gulag courtesy of treasonous so called conservatives in politics and media whom I hold in more contempt than the openly anti-American contingent. At this point and for a long while merely controlled opposition.
We are all things to all people. We are diversity. We are open-minded. We are anti-racist. We are no values. We are all values. We are evolution. We deny evil. We are hope change and vision. We are fools and we are finished. Do you doubt? 10 years should help. The length of standard sentence.
We are so close its unbelievable. The tales Solzhenitsyn described in his massive work of the cruelties and absurdities of the 20th Century Soviet state are soon to replay themselves here. Dont be found to be the first to stop clapping or adoring the leader. That story almost me me laugh and cry. Their legislature would have to clap at the end of their messiah speaking and the old would have heart attacks after standing and clapping for 10 minutes; 20 minutes; 30 minutes. No one wanted to be the first to openly stop because they would be noted and they and their families might be rewarded later that evening with a little vacation. If you survive - 10 more how dare you.
Let me guess: It won’t be supported by a majority of Republicans, but Boehner will bring it to the floor for a vote, where it will pass with Democrat votes and a handful of Rinos. Is that accurate?
Sounds about right.
Can’t we get a majority of Republicans to agree that Boehner has to go? Or would he have Dems vote to keep him where he is with a handful of Rinos, just as he is doing on every other key issue? Pelosi probably likes letting the Republicans do her bidding, it deflects her from the blame.
They re-elected Speaker and it wasn’t even close
that was before he joined the Democrats in passing lots of legislation against his own caucus.
I don’t care anymore If its bi-paradson its probably better than anything we will get out of the white house or senate.
In any even im quite convinced there is no way either the white house or senate will even consister the offer. It is not in their interest for their to be a solution, the way things are with effective aministy is the way they want things to be.
We tried to get rid of him in 2012, hes in one of those rigged districts.
Yes,Paul Shot himself politically in the head today and Rino Rubio is finished. THERE WILL BE NO AMNESTY. These jack asses will soon know their mistake. Ain’t gonna happen. When next year emerges, we will have 100 Tea Party candidates spending these bozo’s into oblivion. I assure you.the government let them in and the government can get them out!!
Get after it boys.
human nature is so risk averse. however, the only available solution to all of this is to form a third party. essentially the anti-republican party and run our own conservatives against any republican party annointed candidate. what is the worst that can happen? our representation as conservatives stays at zero percent.
Oh yeah. They and their supporters are so stupid they place all Mexicans together, thinking everyone is a racist as they.
We don’t care about immigration if it’s legal and the immigrants assimilate into the country.
The law abiding immigrants hate this and they’ll NEVER become a republican voting bloc.
Geeze, half of Catholics still won’t vote for them to save their souls, and, yes, it is considered a mortal sin to promote abortion by supporting a pro abortion candidate, yes, it is.
We can have a vote on this forum:
Which is the dumbest:
(a) John Boehner
(b) Republican primary voters in OH
A likely tossup!
c) go along, to get along. Or a/b. Kinda, seems like a wrap around vote. No biggie; the lose has already, enacted.
Hard to voice support clearly through tears...
