Schumer predicts mass demonstrations if House blocks path to citizenship By Alexander Bolton - 06/23/13 10:00 AM ET
A senior Democratic senator predicted Sunday there could be massive demonstrations in Washington if House Republicans try to block a bill to grant legal status to millions of immigrants.
Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the lead Democratic sponsor of the Senate immigration reform bill, said House Republicans would likely spark massive civil rights rallies if they try to quash measures to create a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country.
This has the potential of becoming the next major civil rights movement. I could envision in the late summer or early fall if Boehner tries to bottle the bill up or put something in without a path to citizenship if theres no path to citizenship, theres not a bill but if he tries to bottle it up or do things like that, I could see a million people on the Mall in Washington, Schumer said on CNNs State of the Union.
Schumer said business leaders, evangelical leaders and CEOs of high tech companies would join the public call for action by the House on immigration.
Schumer has counted about 67 votes for the Senate immigration bill and believes close to 70 will support final passage later this week.
I do believe that having a significant number of Republicans will change the dynamic in the House. Individual Congress members from red districts, if they see their senators voted for it and they decide to do the right thing, there will be huge pressure on [Speaker John] Boehner [R-Ohio] not to block immigration reform, said Schumer.
Schumer predicted that Boehner will have to bring legislation very similar to the Senate bill to the House floor, even if a majority of his conference would not support it.
He will have no choice as the pressure mounts over the summer, Schumer added.
He said Boehner would have to abandon the so-called Hastert Rule and bring legislation granting legal status to millions of illegal immigrants even if less than half of the House GOP conference is willing to vote for it.
Let the bill burn...............
Are foreigners allowed to invade any other country and break the law or demonstrate?
What a great opportunity to arrest and deport all of the illegals at the demonstration.
That’s OK, they don’t scare me.
Apparently he knows the commie organizers are setting up their phony demonstrations.
Pray for America to Wake Up
The surest way to predict the future is to make it happen. He probably has the rent-a-mobs on speed dial
That’s why God invented the water cannon’s!!!
Ok let them protest or demonstrate, so what. No one there seems to care when US citizens object to policy.
Mass demonstrations would be great - it would show how big the invasion problem is.

Foreign nationals don't have civil rights, by definition. Under the Fourteenth Amendment, their God-given, unalienable rights are protected when they're within our jurisdictions, but the immunities and privileges of citizenship, ie "civil rights," are reserved solely to citizens.
Schumer is a poster boy for what you get when you combine arrogance and ignorance and governmental power.
Sounds like he is sending out an invitation.
Schumer is a thug of the highest order, congress is full of them.
Intimidation .... threats .... maybe violence .... it’s official, Mafia tactics are now the main strategy of the Obama Administration.
Lies and nonsense! The illegal aliens are all in the shadows! They don’t to engage in society, hold jobs, report crimes to the police, or commit crimes! They certainly wouldn’t dare to expose themselves by demonstrating in the streets!
Is he not suggesting a demo with his "prediction" here?
Is this not "inciting"?
Are foreigners allowed to invade any other country and break the law or demonstrate?
No, just ours.
Let’s hope they bring out the Mex flags again.
The Left always predicts mass unrest if they don’t get their way. Al Gore has predicted it many times, as has Barak Obama. It’s part of their toolkit. To my knowledge the only times this has happed were LA riots. You don’t need much to set off an LA riot.
I say, fine. We’re all armed now, thanks to the World’s Best Gun Salesman, Barak Obama. Let the unrest begin.
As soon as they pull that one off, they will control everything this country does and everyone they elect.
Schumer knows it, Rubio knows it ...AMERICA KNOWS IT!
“Schumer predicted that Boehner will have to bring legislation very similar to the Senate bill to the House floor, even if a majority of his conference would not support it. “
This miserable bastard has the political calculation down pat. All Democrats vote for it in the House with a few RINOs and he has it passed.
Actually EVERY illegal alien in the country is committing at least one crime.
Good! Let’s have at it!
An GOP that votes for this POS had best be ready to run as a Rat in the next go round.
Visitors, who refuse to return back to their Country, is a civil rights issue??? LOL
Response: Now an illegal Mexican is allowed to pressure American government officials. Further, the Mexican frankly wants the American taxpayer to support them and succeed in doing just that!
Congress is totally corrupt. They run for their office for money, perks, sex with whores and little boys and girls at taxpayer expense. Free meals, a free mortgage, free clothes, free medical care, free utilities and the ability to lie without penalty. They want the Mexican vote and will move heaven and earth to get it.
The real disgust is reserved for the American people who allow these so called "demonstrations," allow the Mexican to vote, collect welfare. Human nothings! Can't even stand up for their own country. How different is the American of the 1840's from the American of 2013.
So what, upChuck? What is is it like livng and dying by bogey men? Is it scawy?
“Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the lead Democratic sponsor of the Senate immigration reform bill, said House Republicans would likely spark massive civil rights rallies”
“Sen Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the lead Democratic sponsor of the Senate immigration bill, said that International ANSWER, the Communist Party USA, other Marxist groups and various Liberal and Progressive groups have assured Senator Schumer that they will make sure that blockage of any bill that grants amnesty will see the mass protests THEY have planned to follow such an event.”
Just maybe, chucky, the next big demonstration will be of American citizens, surrounding congress and...
in other words “we have coordinated with pro-immigration groups to stage mass rallys if the house doesn’t give a illegals citizenship”
Threat of MOB ACTION (if they do not get their way) by a TRAITOR to the United States Government, who, with this kind of provocative talk and tyrannical, unconstitutional behavior if in power in most countries which had any general concern about their Rule of Established Law, their Border Control, and their National Sovereignty, would most likely be summarily taken out to the nearest soccer stadium and
Fine, Chuckie, just have ICE agents and lost of arrest vans ready for the demonstrating illegals, and the problem will take care of itself.
Mass demonstrations by who? Illegals organized by Schumer maybe.
I would hope so. However it will never happen as the American seems devoted only to eating, drinking, drugging, copulating, having a good bowel movement, snoring and attending “The Games.” With all the aforementioned the Average American is too busy and trivial to attend to government.
payed for by the IRS ,with all those millions going to same addresses
ah...Schumer issued the marching orders for this one...
Let them ignore the protest rally and discount them as they did the Tea Party March on Washington. Or is schumer threatening civil unrest? otherwise known as extortion. Kill the bill let them do what the believe they need to do and nature will take it’s course. Cursed be any Republican who votes for this bill.
Round ‘em up, ship ‘em back.
If the people of New Yarkansas had any brains they’d march on Scmuckie’s palace and tar and feather his putrid arse.
His staff is working with LaRaza as we speak.
“Nice country you got there. Wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to it...”
Is he just dreaming or is that a threat?
Hell, the way they have things set up now, everyone one of us is committing at least one crime.
Schumer is going to give a physics demonstration? That should be interesting. He could just show everyone that mass of crap in his head he calls a brain.
Schumer’s wishful thinking!
