RNC Chair: 'Broad Consensus' in GOP Want 'Comprehensive Immigration Reform'
Big Government ^ | 6/29/2013 | Tony Lee

Posted on 06/29/2013 7:00:48 PM PDT by markomalley

A day after the Senate passed its immigration bill, RNC Chair Reince Priebus claimed there was "broad consensus" in the Republican party for "comprehensive immigration reform."

"We need comprehensive immigration reform," Priebus told CNN's Peter Hamby on Friday. "I don't think we can continue to drift along with this mess of immigration laws that we have. And a mess that in many regards has been the results of our government not even enforcing the laws that are in place. There is plenty of blame to go around for why we are in this position, but I think it's about time that we address it."

He then asserted it was "clear that there is pretty broad consensus in the party, in the Republican Party, that we need comprehensive immigration reform" and said he knew the House leadership is "committed" to drafting a comprehensive bill. 

Republican House leaders have indicated that they will not take up the Senate's bill, but have signalled they will draft "comprehensive" legislation they hope to pass in order to go to conference with the Senate. Conservatives, though, would like a narrower approach that focuses primarily on securing--and funding--border security first.

Sounds like a Repubican to me.

When is Sarah getting this "Freedom Party" thing going anyway?

They call it “comprehensive” reform yet the bill is 1200 pages long. Probably not that easy to comprehend.

They ought to look what passing the Senate bill has done for Obama’s poll numbers— absolutely nothing, slight downward trend.

'Broad Consensus' in GOP likes going to Democrat Cocktail parties, which is what this is about.

It ain't about The People.

that’s why so many of us Conservatives are ready to leave the party! When he says a broad consensus in GOP he’s only talking about a few thousand people. I’m a American first, Conservative second. I have not called myself a Republican for some time now.

Good point. It’s astonishing how the House meekly accepts the Obama administration’s refusal to enforce the law. Don’t they have any pride or sense of institutional or constitutional responsibility? They need to reread Madison’s Federalist papers.

Um, if the government can't enforce the existing laws? So we should cave to the statists? You squat to pee too, don't you.

Where did they get this guy from?

And by the way - after thirty or more years of being treated like a red-haired stepchild by the GOP, I have finally changed my party affiliation on my voter registration. I am now officially a Conservative. I will have nothing more to do with those flaccid accomodationists who populate the Republican Party.

But to get back to the topic, Rank Prepuce has totally misstated the problem. We are not in need of immigration reform, we are in need of enforcement of existing laws. We need to secure our borders, and now. Aside from the illegals making it across the borders, who knows how many Al Qaeda operatives and other jihadists are infiltrating our society?

Our Lady of Victory, Pray for Us!

Just read Pat Buchanans’ “Day of Reckoning.” Page 245 gives us 10 ways to deal with the Third World invasion. #1 is NO AMNESTY. #2 calls for a security fence between San Diego and Brownsville. #10 calls for a timeout in LEGAL immigration-that means all. He’d make a good sec of state in a Palin administration.

Priebus should get an internship at the DNC. Because he is way too liberal to lead the RNC.

I've been wondering that myself - Big business I suppose.

If the RNC tries calling me for money again I'm going to actually pick up the phone and tell them why they aren't getting a dime from me.

‘is he not just selling his soul?’

One must have a soul before one is able to sell it.
If Priebus had any self-respect he would have resigned his position after the debacle of the last election.

Most patriots are in shock knowing/coming to terms that the republican establishment will not listen to their constituents or even to those fair-minded independents who mostly vote republican. The shock is from the betrayal of not protecting legal immigrants and Americans and those jobs first. The RNC seems to be expressing this attitude of what are you going to do; leave the party to do what. They didn’t forcefully defend traditional marriage either, did they. This amnesty thing seems to be the grand scheme. Too many politicians, have bought the lie that Rubio has illustrated. Obamacare, now this.

No. What we need is GOVERNMENT reform and not the left wing Obama kind.

You can substitute any word for the useless phrase “comprehensive immigration reform.”
Like this:
RNC Chair Reince Priebus claimed there was “broad consensus” in the Republican party for “Skittles.”

There’s ‘’broad consensus’’ for comprehensive immigration reform in the DEMOCRATIC PARTY. That’s why every Senate Democrat voted for the Immigration Bill.

On the other hand, only 15 Republicans out of 47 voted for the immigration bill. That’s a minority, NOT a ‘’broad consensus.’’ And to say that it is is a LIE.

Why doesn’t Sarah Palin announce, a la Ronald Reagan, ‘’The Republican party has left me, so I’m no longer a member of the Republican party. I’m now an Independent. If you feel the same way, join me, and we’ll start another party.’’?

Rancid Priebus? The loser who got re-hired after losing?

Here is the so-called ‘broad consensus’ that Reince managed to find.

Karl Rove wants amnesty
The Fox RINOS want amnesty
The Bush-bots want amnesty

This is the puke establishment we need to fumigate. The problem we have is all of these RNC snake-oil salesman who’ll seemingly do anything in order to lose. Why are these Bush people still hanging around? How long did it take for the Gerald Ford consultants to finally drop off the radar?
George Bush is gone. We don’t want his stupid brother ‘Hispanics are more fertile’ Jeb. We don’t want amnesty. Reince can go get a job selling vacuums. The RNC does NOT represent conservatives!
