Posted on 10/26/2013 7:03:55 AM PDT by Paine in the Neck
House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is writing a bill that would grant legal status to Americas at least 11 million illegal immigrants, The New York Times reports.
Republican Representatives Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin and Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida have been working on legislation that includes a process by which immigrants here illegally could get right with the law and eventually become citizens, the Times Eric Lipton and Ashley Parker wrote on Friday in a piece about immigration reform.
While the Times reported here, and Politico reported on Friday morning, that the Speaker and other House GOP leadership figures are privately saying they do not expect a vote on immigration measures this year, publicly they say they want to hold a vote on something on the floor of the House.

She is right sometimes...I do agree Ryan is making sure Democrats stay in all offices into the future.
But it appears, according to liberal blogger Greg Sargent, that the public appearance of immigration reform being dead may be a coordinated leak system from the House GOP leadership in order to distract conservatives.
Either GOP leaders are leaking that there will be no vote, in order to quiet fears on the right while they decide what to vote on, Sargent wrote on Friday. Or they are letting it be known that they hope to have a vote, to defer any political fallout that might come from killing reform, in the full intention of doing just that. Take your pick.
Sargent, a liberal blogger connected in Democratic Party circles, said aides to leftist lawmakers believe the House GOP leadership is faking this appearance of amnesty being dead to give them clearance to shore up supportall part of a plan to distract conservatives.
Don't usually put stock into what a *liberal blogger* has to say, but...NOTHING to do with RINO's surprises me anymore, either. Sad thing...when your party leaves you :(
Makes me wonder exactly what it was he’s afraid the NSA heard on his phone line.
I can’t decide if Ryan just went wrong or if he was always that way and its just now showing. No matter he’s killed any chance he had for 2016.
Isn’t he in a heavily Democratic district?
Well if he’s in a heavily democratic district maybe he should run as a Democrat. Just sayin.
If this bill passed it would kill any chance the GOP has of ever winning another election.
You know that and I know that but somebody needs to tell Paul Ryan and all the other RINO’s.
I think the RINOs know that too. I don’t think they care. I think RINOs are Democrats, just the same thing.
“The tool Ryan just won’t quit.”
Why should he? The Open Borders Lobby is lining his bank account. You think he gives a damn about being thrown out of office?
Nixon is still dead. Will he do?
Keep the pressure on. Contact your Representative and tell him you don't want any immigration legislation moved in this Congress. The danger of something that can be conferenced with the Senate into amnesty is too great.
NSA has nothing to do with it.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ are all that matters in Washington.
Collect some DNA from the Generalissimo and, using our modern technology, clone him.
If that fails, do Mussolini.
But who will teach them English?
Oh, sorry, Franco spoke excellent English...
Another RINO to vote out. The scum is rising to the top for all to see.
Too bad Franco wasn’t put aside like Woody Allen’s character in ‘Sleeper’.
And I want the licensing rights to the orgasmatron
And what genius.
