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 Sundays 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.
Im confident hes going to bring it to the floor, Denham said, according to the Politico story, making a reference to Boehner. But were 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.
Stop it. Boehner and Rubio are in FULL retreat on this. Rep. Jeff Denham R-(CA), on Sundays Univision Al Punto show, is talking out of his arse.
If they vote any perks to illegal alien invaders then I will walk away from the republican party entirely and forever.
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 OPC.
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 Democrats 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, Democrats Republicans such as Susan Collins, McCain, Graham, McConnell, Cornyn, Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, and New Yorks Peter King.
Link Democrats to Obamacare, 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.
I don’t know what the point is. Until we get a president who wants secure the border, none of this matters.
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.
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.
Yeah. Then show it to your reps, while pointing up at the big over-hanging branch in the political tree.

The Speaker Gave to Me...
An Illegal Mexican Stampede
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.
Heres is the public Boehner-Cantor-Ryan-Issa-Denham-Diaz-Balart Gang of 28 who will vote with the RATS to pass Amnesty with a path to Citizenship.
They will also DOUBLE the number of annual H1B visas for foreign IT workers.

My post merely states that I won't take the word of CA Rep. Denham, speaking before Univision Al Punto, as dispositive.
We have to pass it to know what's in it.
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.
Not much point in another law under a regime that doesn’t obey or enforce the laws already on the books.
I used to say we had a pantomime president. Now we have a pantomime congress to match.
on the phones again. no bill to conference with the senate. period.
Better an open Dem than a fraudulent Repub. These guys are a disgrace.
-- Article One, Section 8, the U.S. Constitution
"The Congress shall have Power To...establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization..."
-- Article One, Section 8, the U.S. Constitution
The GOPe is on a suicide run
U.S. Constitution, Article Four, Section. 4.
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion..."
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.
I’m afraid I agree w/ your take on the situation.
Boehner and Cantor are not to be trusted...IMO.
Sure seems that way, doesn’t it.
“comprehensive” = 10,000 pages of legal fluff, paybacks and regulations
I want no part of it.
We have to stop it.
Any votes that Boehner brings up will be piecemeal immigration legislation, not a comprehensive bill.
“If they vote any perks to illegal alien invaders then I will walk away from the republican party entirely and forever”
Pretty much sums it up for me. If the GOP votes to allow 11 million (low estimate) illegals to gain permanent status I am done.
Well that makes two of us!
Yeah? So, what happens when it gets to the conference committee?
Boehner is probably looking out for his Jamaican, dredlock, dope dealing son in law and family.
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.
These bills are Trojan Horses. They will be sent to the Senate and amended to the point that they will be comprehensive bills. Once they are in conference, it is a fait accompli.
Thanks for pointing out the flaw in my thinking...crap.
Thanks for thinking it through!
Oh for heavens sakes....do Not pretend you are from a district if you are not. The citizens from that particular district deserve to be heard by their representative. Why would you encourage anyone to be dishonest??? That defeats the purpose. They may not agree with you.
Nah. GOP-E wants subminimum-wage workers for their real bosses, who are the only people who count.
Your daddy fought in the A Shau Valley and Khe Sanh? Sucker. Your granddaddy fought in North Africa? Yeah, well, that was a long time ago.
Any person from the other side of the world who'll work for a rich landowner or manufacturing company for 75
They're convinced that their wealth will insulate them, unlike the unfortunate plutocrats of Argos (what, never heard that story? -- wonder why) who, having angered the Argive populace with their arrogance and high-handedness, were dragged out of their houses one day and clubbed to death.
I think Barky has made a value judgement that Cracka America is uppity, and anything bad that happens to us in future is just well-deserved "blowback" </off Rat Liespeak> for our uppityness, about which he, possessing the Long Perspective and owning Political Correctness, is well-justified in standing aside with his arms folded while uppity Cracka America takes a pounding from nuclear-armed terrorists and terror-states who are expressing their fully-justified historical rage against uppityness.
Boom, there goes Des Moines. Toldja, crackas. No, historically, it's YOUR fault. Be "post-American" or die!
