White House preps fall immigration push
Politico ^ | Sept. 27, 2013 | REID J. EPSTEIN and JONATHAN ALLEN

Posted on 09/28/2013 4:48:37 PM PDT by SatinDoll

The White House is getting ready to launch a major fall blitz for immigration reform...

While Washington may be consumed in the latest continuing resolution crisis and debt ceiling drama, it’s also just days away from massive new push on an issue many had written off months ago.

[snip]

The political imperatives driving the latest immigration effort are clear: Obama can’t just abandon an issue that he promised to deliver on during his last campaign without suffering a major backlash from activists who helped elect him, and congressional Democrats are anxious to make sure Latino voters are motivated to punish Republicans at the polls in the 2014 mid-term election if there’s no law on the books by then.

The Commies/Dhimms never sleep. The Big Government Republicans (Eric Cantor et al.) never sleep. Therefore, we must be ever vigilant.

We’re going to have to fight amnesty off until it’s too close to the 2014 campaign for these jerks to try it anymore.

Well, knowing that there are more than 6 RINO Senators (27 to be exact at this point in time), the 'Rats can assume that what they want they will get.

(After all the RINOs strongly wish to remain in office after 2014.)

Like I said from the start: He only agenda since day one has been to destroy the US from within while helping to empower and spread radical Islam. I tell liberals all the time: Name one thing he has done besides play golf that doesn’t fall under those two things. He even parties with gangsta rappers so as to dishonor the office of the President! EVERYTHING he does is done solely to destroy the US. The ONLY good he has done is for radical muslims and THAT is it!

King, Gohmert and Smith should kill any enforcement bill by Gowdy and Goodlatte. Goodlatte must have some delusion that he will be ordering millions of deportations and only a handful will qualify for amnesty lite.

The best thing that can happen is that Obama, Pelosi and Grijalva push amnesty.

Then dare Goodlatte and Gowdy to sponsor an amnesty bill with Luis, Grijalva and Pelosi.

Hold some bipartisan press conferences with Barrow, Rahall and McIntyre to kill the amnesty.

I think she means—The president’s top immigration adviser, Felicia Escobar, has told immigration advocates that the White House will turn to their issue after the the minor incontinences on government funding and raising the nation’s debt limit..Obama already is not enforcing the immigration laws as it is and he wants us to believe..this time they are really serious about the laws...Same hype in 86.All talk no action.New laws same as the old laws.. That might well explain this.. Border Patrol Union: Feds Risking Agents' Lives to Appease 'Fringe' Groups The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) has condemned the decision by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) to "overhaul its basic training on the use of force and mandate the use of cameras in vehicles and on agents." In a blunt press release circulated on Thursday, the NBPC said that the changes have put the lives of Border Patrol (BP) agents in jeopardy in order to appease fringe groups. The border patrol union also called out the CBP for not releasing criminal histories of the illegal border crossers who make allegations against BP agents and failing to prosecute violent illegal aliens who attack agents. They also suggest that the U.S. government is not allocating enough resources to secure the U.S./Mexico border properly. The NBPC begins the press release by explaining that the Border Patrol has chosen to use the already diminished funding for the U.S. Border Patrol Agency to place cameras in BP vehicles. “The decision would cost millions of dollars at a time when Border Patrol agents are lacking basic resources to secure the border and a long-overdue pay reform package,” according to the release. “This is a knee-jerk reaction by CBP that will result in agents hesitating to use force to defend themselves, resulting in more injured and murdered agents,” said Shawn Moran, Vice President of National Border Patrol Council. “It’s wrong to place these men and women in even greater danger than they’re already in to placate the demands of a few fringe organizations.” The release also states that BP agents are unable to secure the "porous" border due to budgetary constraints. This reporter confirmed these assertions on recent tours of the U.S./Mexico border, where I witnessed miles upon miles of unsecured, wide-open border. I also witnessed solitary BP agents who had been assigned to monitor miles of the unsafe territories with no backup in sight and often in areas where no fence or barrier of any kind separated the public servant from cartel-controlled stretches of Mexico. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/09/27/Border-Patrol-Union-Border-Unsafe-U-S-Gov-Risking-Lives-To-Appease-Fringe-Groups-Refusing-to-Prosecute-Violent-Criminals Making them sitting ducks.

No, it’s a matter of conservatives and patriots not joining the fight and overwhelming the bed-wetting, gutless leftists and kicking their asses.

We have an open border. It has been that way since, at least, 1995. We can thank the Progressives for that.

President Eisenhower deported somewhere around a million illegal aliens in the late 1950s, and millions more returned to their home countries without assistance from the U.S.Govt. If it was done over 50-years ago, it can still be done today.

I’ve said before that the only way to stop RINOs from responding to blackmail was to hire PIs to find the dirt, then make it public ourselves. Otherwise, most of the ppl we elect will turn on us.

The only alternative to becoming immune to NSA blackmail is to do what Dems do — ignore the bad behavior (the “it’s all about sex” approach.) But with a socialist media that shapes the news, is that really even an option?

I say HIRE THE PIs!

Rand Paul’s immigration speech
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)
Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2998395/posts

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

[but he’s not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]

I suspect it is really all about political donations and sweetheart deals under the table.

All politicians will tell you that money, and lots of it, is needed to run a political campaign for office. Those donations usually come with strings attached.

As for the sweetheart deals, it costs money to live in the nation’s capitol. A loan with a very low interest rate really helps a family man - until the loan organization threatens to call in the loan unless you vote a certain way!

Savez-vous?

It’s most likely both blackmail AND money. Regardless of the source of Conservative-Turned-RINOism, it’s nothing a good private investigator couldn’t find. Sex with prostitutes, money, a ménage a trios with the esteemed colleague across the aisle and HIS prostitute, money, cross-dressing in your prostitute’s lingerie, money... How hard could it be to find?

Gary Hart comes to mind here...

Bingo! What about this did the electorate not understand last November. . Sometimes I shake my head so much, it starts to ache. I just about am at the end of my rope as to what we can do. . besides RII. When I think of my kids and grandkids, I tear up and think we have to do something. . Hope the Cruz, Lee, Palin team can rally the troops as we focus on 2014. I'm excited but worried about 2014. I tell ya, if 2014 is a disappointment with rampant voter fraud, same MSM bias, same old 'machine' determining the elections, etc, I don't think we have any other choice than. . . Venting here. . Thanks for reading. Just have to tell someone what's on my mind. Appreciate Free Republic so much.

From a prior LucyT post:

NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote. Imagine that.....

In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. A mathematical and statistical impossibility.

* In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations -- and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. Another statistical impossibility.

* In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.

* In St. Lucie County Florida, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.

* The National SEAL Museum, a polling location in St. Lucie County Florida, had a 158% voter turnout.

* Palm Beach County, FL had a 141% voter turnout.

* In one Ohio county, Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.

This president is not expected to act like a U.S. President so no one is stopping his crimes... Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, Michelle, Axelrod, Cass and other (Communists/Socialists) will provide cover of riots and protests should less than the entire House demand his removal.

We have to do an all out full court press to investigate and remedy the rampant voter fraud that has infected our nation from now until November, 2014. Work with your states to require a photo ID to vote. Such a duh, but they will fight it. .

We have just begun to Fight!

Gary Hart didn’t care what people thought of him.

Not too long ago there was a party on Senator Machin’s yacht (D-WV) and Republicans were invited. The Democrats liquored up the Republicans thoroughly, then brought whores on board. The women pawed the Republicans and photos were taken.

That, my dear, is one of the ways it happens. Such photos are dynamite against a conservative Republican when used in his district. The poor slob doesn’t have a chance.

Republicans must not succumb to the seductive arguments about being friends with journalists or Democrats. They are our political enemies who will do anything to destroy reputations and lives.

Yeah, exactly HOW do they become tax PAYERS and not tax-ABSORBERS?

Aren't 99.9% of these "hard workin' folks" going to be immediately eligible for all kinds of taxpayer provided goodies?

Riddle me that please,Senator Paul.

We stand a little better now than we did last time amnesty came up in 2007. Back then we the President (GWB) allied with a Dem-controlled House and Senate. And we succeeded in thwarting the Bush legacy of annesty. This time we have engough Tea Party folks in the House to mess up the whole thing.

I though you guys might like to read this and show you what an ass we have for president compared to these men..

What did Presidents Hoover , Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?

This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. I didn’t know of this until it was pointed out to me.

Back during the great depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work.

Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII to create jobs for Returning veterans.

In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans. The program was called Operation Wetback. It was done so WWII and Korean War veterans would have a better chance at jobs. It took two years, but they deported them!

Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens back then, they could surely do it today. If you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation Wetback into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself.

Why, you might ask, can’t they do this today? Actually the answer is quite simple. Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower were men of honor, not untrustworthy politicians looking for votes!

This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. I didn’t know of this until it was pointed out to me.
