Posted on 07/01/2013 7:02:57 AM PDT by Resettozero
(CNSNews.com) - Joking that he was "moved almost to the point of tears by Sen. (Chuck) Schumer's concern for the future prospects of the Republican Party," Rep. Trey Gowdy said on Sunday the immigration bill passed by the Senate is dead on arrival in the House:
"The Senate bill is not going to pass in the House. It's not going to pass for myriad reasons," Gowdy told "Fox News Sunday."

We need to have criminal penalties for Federal Executive Officials who do not enforce the laws currently on the books.
He says the current system is broken. How would he know? It’s not used. The only thing broken are Oaths.
Enforce existing law.
The bill these Sinators passed borders on treason, in broad daylight. It echoes the treason voiced by their “leader” when he talked about a post-partisan America. This translates to decimating the Republican party and the American worker, by importation of a new electorate beholden to these usurpers.
Hopefully he will decide to take on Linda Graham in the primary next year.
Want on or off this ping list? Just drop me a FReep mail.
Add to that fraud convictions for US Senators and HOR reps who go traitor on their campaign promises, and we could get somewhere.
“Getting it right” = Arresting and deporting existing trespassers + building impregnable border fence + felony penalties for future trrspassers and employers of these criminals.
Anything less is unacceptable.
No, Mr. Gowdy.
Nothing needs to be done outside of secure the border and enforce current law.
If you do anything other than that, you can take a flying leap.
I - and most conservatives - can GUARANTEE that we will desert the Repulsican party should the house pass this pile of Obamstuff bill.
Plan your future carefully RINOs.
It’s not going to pass for myriad reasons,”
How about it rewards those who commit a felon by crossing into our country illegaly.
Hm, I think it'd be cheaper, and more cost effective, to deploy (at regular intervals) 144mm Howitzers and infantry.
LOVE Trey Gowdy!
I meant to say that if you have a Trey Gowdy ping list, put me on it.
NO BILL SHOULD COME OUT OF HOUSE!!
The House/Speaker Boehner need to Blue Slip the Senate bill.
Any bill the House comes up with (a Trojan horse) will go to conference. NOT GOOD!
Yep. There's no real disincentive for them to neglect enforcing established law.
I have a political crush on Gowdy. He’s got a set of brass ones and is incredibly articulate.
It is dangerous for the House to pass ANY amnesty bill because when the Senate and House bills go to committee for reconciliation, the RINOs will allow ALL enforcement to be taken out of the bill in exchange for empty promises from the Rats.
“ Virtually everyone agrees on the broad principles. Where we get ourselves into a little bit of a difference of opinion are the details.....So, you can agree in theory on border security but disagree very strongly on how it's achieved. You can agree on a path to legalization or citizenship. But whether border security is a condition precedent, which it would be in my case, is a very important distinction.”
Like the Senate RINOs he wanted to indicate that citizenship was OK with him. This is worrisome. It is like they are all scared to oppose that in public,.
They’ll also need to revise the current statutes that say that after a certain point, people who were criminals for crossing the border illegally stop being criminals and just become civil violators for being here without proper authorization. Completely ridiculous. If you were a criminal when you initially came here, you remain a criminal until you’ve gone through the justice system. I can’t think of any other situation (there may be one) where, without any remedial action on the lawbreaker’s part, he stops being a lawbreaker just by the passage of time. Limitations is different, you’re still a lawbreaker but you can’t be tried.
