Pro-Amnesty GOP Rep: Boehner Planning Immigration Votes 'in Next Month or So'
Breitbart ^ | Oct. 27, 2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 10/28/2013 8:05:50 AM PDT by EternalVigilance

Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA), a Republican member of the House who supports comprehensive immigration reform, said on Sunday’s Univision Al Punto show that House Speaker John Boehner promised him there would be immigration votes in the House of Representatives soon.

Politico reported that according to an English-language translation of the interview where Denham spoke in Spanish, he said House GOP leadership has promised him that there would be more immigration hearings and floor time for immigration legislation some time in “the next month or so.”

“I’m confident he’s going to bring it to the floor,” Denham said, according to the Politico story, making a reference to Boehner. “But we’re going to continue to make sure that the entire country focuses on this, and that we actually get more Republicans that are willing to take a stand and get out there.”

Denham has also decided to publicly endorse the House Democrats' immigration bill, introduced by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and others. At a press conference where she and the House Democrats introduced the legislation, Pelosi said the intent of the bill is to get to a conference committee with the Senate's "Gang of Eight" bill.

Unless you want to see tens of millions of invading foreign nationals receive amnesty, you better fight right now. Because the media and political establishments, in both so-called “major” parties, are fixing to put on a full court press this time. Make it clear to your representatives in Congress that one ounce of support for amnesty on their part means NO political support from you EVER AGAIN.

Rubio retreats: Comprehensive immigration bill wrong way to go...

Stop it. Boehner and Rubio are in FULL retreat on this. Rep. Jeff Denham R-(CA), on Sunday’s Univision Al Punto show, is talking out of his arse.

Well, one can hope you are correct. But I refuse to believe it. We’ve been around this block too many times, and there is too much evidence of large forces right now organizing to push amnesty again. So I believe it is incumbent on us to “keep up the skeer.” The stakes are too high to do anything else.

Immigration Bypass is just another Obama Smokescreen to keep Boehner distracted from appointing Special Prosecuters for role of CIC Obama in the Benghazi Murders, the National Spy Apparatus (NSA), the IRS Gestapo Tactics, and Media confiscation tactics by AG Holder.

Only very stupid RINOs such as Boehner, Cantor, Ryan and Issa are dumb enough to be lead around by their noses by the Marxist Obamanation administration.

_________

Now that 300 million Americans are being secretly spied on by the Rouge Marxist Obamanation Administration, there are thus 300 million Americans that do not trust Obama.

Is this massive distrust enough for the US Congress to hire a Special Prosecutor to investigate this National Security Spy Apparatus?

What more does it take for our gullible, lethargic RINOs to draw up the Articles of Impeachment for Obama?

Do they not realize that the RINOs are in control of the US House of Representatives?

They have the Partisan DUTY to be a “Check and Balance” by use of their duty to Impeach a Constitutionally offending White House Resident.

Now that 70 Million French Citizens, and like number of German, and Spanish citizens have been spied on by the Rogue Marxist Obamanation Administration, there are well over 100 million European Citizens who do not trust Obama.

As head of the Rogue Marxist Obamanation Administration, this loss of trust is the sole responsibility of B. Hussein Obama.

Should Impeachment Proceedings begin in the US Congress to Impeach for Dereliction of Duty “B. Hussein Obama,” aka Barry Soetoro, a legal citizen of the Sovereign Nation of Indonesia?

If the American Citizens do not trust Obama, and our main European Allies do not trust Obama, then what more is the US Congress waiting for before starting Obama Impeachment Proceedings?

_________________________

And now for the REAL Enemy: The Democrats:

How sweet it would be to tie, in the minds of the Low Information Voter, the Democrats who voted for Nationalizing 1/6 th of the US Economy to this Democrat Cash Cow, Mandatory Insurance Tax Law!

The Leftstream Media currently controls the minds of the Low Information Voter by controlling the powerful COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION POLLING CORPORATION, commonly known as COP-O-PC, pronounced “Cop O’PC.”

Right now Obama can do anything that he wants to do because of the “White Guilt” of the Leftstream Media, and a “White Guilt” mentality of jelly-spined Congressional Democrat’s Republicans.

Thus, all of the focus is directed to the incompetence of the staff that Obama has hired to protect him from knowing anything about the signature Law that he is so proud of.

It is the perfect “I know nothing” do-loop designed for gullible, jelly-spined, Red Ink, Congressional, Democrat’s Republicans such as Susan Collins, McCain, Graham, McConnell, Cornyn, Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, and New York’s Peter King.

Link Democrats to Obama’care,’ and maybe the Low Information voter will remember that it was the Democrats that wrote it, voted for it, and then it was Democrat Reid shut down the US Federal Government in 2013 to keep it from being defunded by cowardly, Cave-In, Congressional RINOs.

The Democrats have wanted this ultimate-control, Marxist Law for nearly 100 years, and now that the Democrats have rammed it down our throats we Conservatives must see to it that the Democrats are clearly held responsible for the great harm that this failed Law has already done to America.

Rubio is but I am not to sure about Boner. With the entire leadership of the GOP and Issa, McCaul and Ryan all trying to write legislation to destroy us I am very leery. Call your congressman office and other congressmen as well pretending to be from his district all you can. And then hope and pray or we will lose this country. It is easy to come on here with your sour grapes but with a little more effort you can call any number of congressman’s office spill your gut and maybe make a difference which you can’t really sitting here and complaining.

Well, it matters, because if they amnesty them, they are amnestied. There’s no going back.

The Constitution gives the Congress sole power to set our policies concerning immigration and naturalization.

Executive office usurpations and derelictions are one thing. Congressional amnesty sets it all in stone.

Boehner and Rubio are in FULL retreat on this.

That simply isn't so. The Reps are pushing ahead with separate pieces of legislation on immigration. Several have already come out of committee. There is a border bill and a guest worker bill (STEM) that have been passed out of committee. The idea is to pass the bills and send them to the Senate where they will be linked to the Gang of 8 bill and go to conference or each bill will be amended and passed by the Senate and then go to conference.

The big push is on now from the GOP donors. Ryan, Goodlatte, Cantor, and Pete Sessions are pushing this big time now. It is all behind the scenes. Don't be fooled by the rhetoric.

Rubio has not changed his views on the substance of what is in the Gang of 8 bill, just the tactics. Be afraid, very afraid of what is afoot. The GOP's corporate paymasters desperately want an increase in guest workers, especially skilled ones. The GOP will trade an amnesty for this increase.

We should be pushing for no bill to come to the floor. It is a Trojan Horse.

Assuming you posted your comment in good faith and really are opposed to amnesty for illegals, you are suggesting a very, very dangerous course of action. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Too many things that we all “knew”were impossible already have occurred for reasonable people to sit back and do nothing. Other articles say many business leaders are coming to Wasjkngton to press hard for amnesty. This is the mind of law that can be slammed through before we in the opposition have the opportunity to mobilize. Think of the way Cuomo rammed his disarmament law through in Albany.

Bring what to vote. What is in the bill? Who wrote the bill and who are the sponsors. And the only thing I agree on it is proper to bring it to a vote since we should know what the members go for. That is the Democratic way.

Assuming that you have not had too much caffeine, I posted my comment primarily because I would rather train my sights on known issues and scandals of the democRATS right now. There have been a voluminous number of threads with the fire rightly aimed at the gopE. But we should prioritize; it's a time of triage. There is no question that eternal vigilance is necessary AND that it constantly happens at FR.

My post merely states that I won't take the word of CA Rep. Denham, speaking before Univision Al Punto, as dispositive.

That is a naive and dangerous strategy for someone who is opposed to amnesty for illegals to take. It is a fine strategy to be taken by someone who wants to distract us from the likely destruction of Americanthat would be caused by such an amnesty.

People opposed to amnesty for illegals should remember that a association leftist strategy is to distract and placate the opposition until they believe the time is optimal and then ram their legislation through while we are asleep.

No FReeper should let down his guard about the threat of amnesty for illegals, all the more so in light of the strong support for such an amnesty from big business, agribusiness and, therefore, the Republicans who are dependent on those groups for financial support.

The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday June 27 passed a tech-backed immigration bill from Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on a 20 to 14 vote.

The bill would increase the number of H-1B visas for highly skilled foreign workers, as well as make 55,000 green cards available to foreign graduates of U.S. universities with advanced technical degrees. But to offset making those green cards available, the bill would eliminate the diversity visa and siblings of U.S. citizens. The House bill (or at least, the Issa version) is here.
