Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) urged their House Republican colleagues to pass immigration reform legislation in a closed-door meeting Wednesday, with the Speaker arguing his conference would be in a much weaker position if it failed to act.
A divided House Republican conference met for more than two hours in the basement of the Capitol to begin hashing out a response to the sweeping immigration bill the Senate passed last month.
He (Issa) said the House would deal with the 11 million illegal immigrants, but that the conference viewed them not as a uniform block, but in three distinct categories: Those who should remain, those who should not remain, and those who would fall within guest workers or other programs.

Gawd this guy is such a weakling...
And the cheap labor pimp Bonehead will be without a leadership job if
he rams amnesty through.
The party will be much weaker because they will drive away many supporters. Independents, conservative, democrats and libertarians. Boehner is lying to us; he wants this passed. I recall him saying the House must not give Obama the bailout money. We know what happened.
Even some liberals are saying on some of their blogs that Boehner wants a done immigration bill (amnesty).
Here is how you deal with 11(20?) million illegal aliens: Pass a law fining employers $5000 for each illegal alien they hire and ENFORCE IT! The illegals will deport themselves.
The sellout and betrayal begins, led by Limp Boehner
Whatever Boehner’s mental state or condition he just can’t recognize the two sides of a coin especially the one that says the GOP is down the tubes if it gives the USA to illegal immigrants of any kind.
I detest the GOP leadership.
Boehner is such a compromised, blackmail controlled, Bohemian Grove fudge packing, moloch worshipper that this latest bend over should come as no surprise.
Boehner warns “House GOP is weaker because of my whiney azz spineless lack of leadership.” There I fixed it.
Boehner has a drinking problem. He also has a limp spaghetti spine; both are common knowledge on the hill.
Fix legal immigration first, and illegal immigration won’t be a problem.
Dump Boehner NOW
Dump Cantor too!
If Boehner believes what is quoted, if he has some 500 page, several year old, being drafted piece of garbage bill (by staffers) about "comprehensive immigration reform" he's going to destroy his majority, his party AND his country.
Then why didn’t they dump him in Jan when they had the chance? I can only imagine they don’t give a sh** and it’s all about ‘getting along’ because they all drink with him.
The GOP would be stronger without Boehner.
I’d rather see him shipped back to Ohio, covered with tar and feathers. And it’s OK with me if Toomey comes back to Pennsyltucky in the same condition.
Another reason for term limits. These politicians are too far removed from their constituents and too close to the big money and power offered to them on a daily basis.
Passing anything regarding amnesty will weaken the GOP. I’ve had it with them.
Where’s the Fence?
“I detest the GOP leadership.”
Yup. Utterly and completely.
Amnesty will destroy the GOP. For two totally separate reasons, neither of which is disputable.
‘I realize this is from “The Hill”...’
Yeah, and they’re at the fore of the nedia assault on conservatives.
RINOs have adopted an “amnesty or nothing” attitude. If the GOP establishment needs an immigration bill so bad then all they have to do is put pressure on the RINOs to drop that “amnesty or nothing” stance. ‘Party discipline’ isn’t just for conservatives.
i as well. freaking vichy republicans working for/with their democrat masters.
Any District meetings over the August recess should be as hot as possible. There should be no bill at all. Any bill will be used as a vehicle for amnesty.
Yep. Cantor must go, as well.
They’re going to play the “compassionate conservative” card to try to pass Amnesty under the disguise of a “new and improved” Dream Act. For the children...
How weak ya gonna be without a party left, Mr. Speaker?
Why don’t they just tell Odumbo No, and then wait for a Conservative Republican President to start a new bill that will ACTUALLY address the boarder first; and then secondly AFTER that fact fix a solution for the eventual legalization; once the boarder IS secure..?
this bunch likely to give that in tax credit for hiring a foreign criminal alien
where is that new party cuz we need it
Here is a group to watch and prod...this gang rode in on Tea Party "endorsement"...and ONE MORE reelection and they get that coveted 5 years of congressional service...thus the bogus retirement they give themselves..
Boehner and Ryan - “America MUST be destroyed!” These piggies can KMA!
Ok I have got to know... does this drunk pos believe what he is saying or does he just have no other defense of this idea?????????????
If they vote out a bill you will see it rise.
Thanks, I need that ;-).
The other way is to cut off, 100%, ALL gov bennies from free school to free emergency rooms to FS and anything else. And for the rest of the takers, they have to show valid ID for everything.
Of course, we need to cut off Uncle free stuff for everyone, legal or not. Welfare in all its manifestations is killing the country not just from pi**ing away money (that doesn’t even exist) to making dependent slavish fools out of millions of people. And attracting parasites.
You can’t do that unless you provide tools to figure out who’s legal, and allow employers to require extra documentation if they think someone’s illegal. Right now, they can’t fire someone if their e-verify result indicate fraud, so how can they be held responsible?
What is weaker than a grown male cry baby?
Get rid of the one party system and vote them all out.
Okay, it is high time that employers got off the hook by claiming that they didn’t know the person was illegal.
“Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) urged their House Republican colleagues to pass immigration reform legislation in a closed-door meeting Wednesday, with the Speaker arguing his conference would be in a much weaker position if it failed to act.”
Pass any of this garbage Boner and you’ll see how much weaker you are.
