Schumer helping GOP: House Will Pass Senate Immigration Bill or Face Minority Status 'For a Decade'
breitbart ^ | 6/30/13

Posted on 06/30/2013 4:45:51 PM PDT by bestintxas

On Fox News Sunday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) predicted that the House Republican resistance to bringing up the Senate’s immigration reform would be overcome. “I believe that by the end of this year,” said Schumer, “the House will pass the Senate bill.” That would be a shocking development, given the fact that Boehner has already said that the Senate bill will not see the light of day in the House.

Schumer said that the Republicans would force Speaker of the House John Boehner to take up the bill to prevent the party from becoming demographically obsolete. “The national Republican leadership will tell John Boehner, if you don’t pass a bill, we’re going to be a minority party for a decade,” Schumer stated. He also added that Democrats would not sign off on any approach to immigration reform that was not comprehensive.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) made no such prediction. “It’s not going to be easy,” he stated, “but I really hesitate to tell Speaker Boehner how he should do this.”

Advice from Schumer...who surely worries ceaselessly about the viability of the GOP.

I am sure that Schumer is simply looking out for the best interests of the Republican Party.

Only chance to stop the Amnesty bill is for the House not to consider any immigration related bill at all.

Michelle Bachman explained it. ANY House bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.

Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway.

Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives won’t vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.

Tom Tancredo echos what Michelle Bachmann said.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3036438/posts

call congress . no bill at all from the House

Just a few things in this horrible Amnesty bill.

1. Amnesty for 30 million illegals
2. those 30 million new citizens will be allowed to bring in their extended family members from the 3rd world = 50 million more NEW 3rd world immigrants.
3. Amnesty forever to any 3rd world liar who claims political asylum (any Muslim). Michelle Bachman said this alone could bring in another 50 million 3rd world immigrants. total count 130 million new democrat voters so they can turn the USA into a socialist state.
4. all these new citizens will have more rights than Americans. a $5000 penalty for employers if they hire An American over an amnestied 3rd world immigrant
5. democrats import All these 130 million new democrat voters from the 3rd world so that democrats can turn the USA into a socialist/communist state where they will give all your property and money to these immigrants
6. a massive increase in work visas for many many occupations in many fields ,even professional ones
7. The democrats know if they can destroy liberty in the USA then the rest of the world will follow. this is the plan to destroy liberty in the world and install communism worldwide
8. Massive amounts of $ to community organizations to register these immigrants as democrats
9 .A 1200 page obamacare like bill doling out billions to democrat organizations

There are many more but I don’t have time to post them all

what are these Senators thinking voting for 1200 pages of communist evil?

Why aren’t we out in the street protesting this bill or at least melting the phone lines?

Looks like they’re screwed either way then. If they pass it they’ll alienate their base. This could be the demise of the Republican Party.

On the other hand, maybe Schumer is just a self serving POS.

Schumer is a pathological liar. Just like Pelosi, Obama, and all of their ilk.

The House was voted into the majority for opposing just these measures. If they continue to oppose them, their majority will grow. Schumer knows this, and is trying all in his power to change it.

Sorry, Chucky boy, that do don’t hunt.

Domestic terrorist Schumer is at it again.. What happened to his threats of civil unrest by illegal aliens in the United States? All the Republicans need to do is the following:

House Speaker Boehner, surrounded by House Republicans calls a press conference and says "The House of Representatives will not consider ANY Bills sent by the Democrat-controlled Senate UNLESS AND UNTIL their elected officials and their subordinates STOP PLEADING THE 5TH OR STONEWALLING INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE IRS TARGETING OF CONSERVATIVES, THE DOJ SPYING ON FOX NEWS, OR ACCOUNTABILITY FOR WHAT REALLY HAPPENED LEADING UP TO, DURING, AND AFTER THE 9/11 ATTACK IN BENGHAZI. The House cannot, in all good conscience forward the agenda of a party whose constituents are possibly guilty of serious criminal acts pertaining to these scandals. If the Democrats are SERIOUS about immigration reform then it's time for them to get SERIOUS about 'accountability in government'. NINE MONTHS have passed since Benghazi and America is STILL waiting for answers. The ball is in your court, Democrats. It's time to get serious about accountability for these scandals."

The House putting out ANY immigration bill is political suicide.

Amnesty is a poison pill that will kill the GOP, dead. Not in 20 years. In 2014.

It’s. Just. That. Simple.

Memo to Republicans: A significant portion of your base will refuse to continue to stand with you after this betrayal. At the point you so blatantly sell out our nation, our principles, and our founding ideas, you become worse than the opposition party.

You are turning the answer to “Where else are conservatives going to go?” into something far different than the rhetorical question you intended.

If the House passes any sort of immigration bill, it’ll be conferenced into amnesty. That will be the Fort Sumpter ring out that sounds the end of the GOP. Make no mistake, the GOP cannot survive amnesty - and not because of demographics.

Schumer, while claiming that supporting the dumb Senate bill will enable the GOP to survive and thrive, is actually trying to lure his biggest enemy into a suicide trap!

Oh, how sly he thinks he is!

Why just a decade, why not forever?

I tell people all the time I am a RINO...because what I believe and what the Republican Party seems to believe, based on the actions of it’s leaders, are miles apart. I remain registered as a Republican, but that’s it. In Name Only.

Let’s abandon this useless vehicle and build us a new one that can drive the change we need. Where is the New Conservative Party? Let’s roll!

Here’s my suggestion of the Dream Team to design it: Sarah Palin, Trey Gowdy, Scott Walker, and Dick Cheney will bring political experience and true conservative thinking. The Heritage Institute, Hillsdale College, Newt Gingrich, and Jim DeMint to bring a knowledge of history and founding principles, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin, and Mark Levin will figure out how to communicate it, and the Koch Brothers, Foster Freiss, Sherman Adelson, and Roger Ailes can figure out how to pay for it.

Limbaugh, Hannity, Ailes, and others have profited handsomely by the conservative movement, now it’s time to pay it back.

Gather these 16 people into a certain Palm Beach estate for as long as it takes. Hire some Marks to fill in, send food, iced tea and cigars - but no booze until they get the job done. I figure it should take about 2 days and then we could kiss the GOP goodbye forever.

Even Hannity asked Ryan the other day if he was worried about amnesty creating a civil war within the party. This isn’t just some sentiment on FR.

They know.

They know.

That’s the worst part.

Like a Zuckerberg commercial telling you what it means to be a conservative, they think we’re all low information voters that can be dealt with between now and 2014 (or we’ll forget by then). Or worse, even if the threat of revolt is real to them, the threat of top donations drying up scares them more (just like the recent BSA board decision).

The bottom line here is that the GOP-e is trying to thread the needle between their donors and their rank and file supporters (not the same people). They are under enormous pressure from their donors to get this done. Unless they fear the loss of their supporters more than their donors (and that’s an uphill climb), this will pass.

In warfare it helps to demonize your enemies. Sadly, many within the GOP-e already do that with their own base. When push comes to shove, between their donors and their base, they already have the mindset that the base can shove it.

The GOP will control the house until 2023.

It is impossible for them to lose. The Democrats would need a 2006 type landslide. For that to happen the GOP would need to pass amnesty or invade Syria and Iran.
