    U.S. President Barack Obama defended his plan to use executive powers to implement some immigration reforms, saying in an interview broadcast on Sunday he had waited long enough for Congress to act. Obama told congressional leaders on Friday he would try to ease some restrictions on undocumented immigrants, despite warnings from Republican leaders that such actions would "poison the well" or would be "a red flag in front of a bull". -snip- "We don't have the capacity to deport 11 million people -- everybody agrees on that," he said.
  • Report: Boehner's Secret Amnesty Talks With Obama Revealed

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) warned President Barack Obama again against taking executive action on immigration Thursday, telling Obama he would be playing with matches and risk burning himself. “[H]e’s going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path,” the House Speaker said. The Wall Street Journal reports that there was additional subtext to Boehner’s warning, specifically a year of discussions — unreported until now by the WSJ — between the two men about achieving a legislative compromise on immigration reform. According to the report in the summer of 2013 Boehner and Obama began discussing ways to...

    NY Times ^ | 11/6/14 | NY Times Editorial Board
    President Obama said on Wednesday that he would act on his own by the end of the year to “improve” the immigration system, presumably by giving many — perhaps millions — of the country’s unauthorized immigrants temporary protection from deportation and permission to work. He has said this before, only to back off in deference to election-year politics. Now the election is over, and the only thing to say to the president is: Do it. Take executive action. Make it big. He must not give in to calls to wait. Six fruitless years is time enough for anyone to realize...

    On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said it is time for a Republican-led Congress to move an immigration bill forward, so long as President Obama doesn't "burn himself" by enacting executive amnesty before the end of the year. -snip- Referring to immigration, Boehner also said that "it is time for the Congress of the United States to deal with a very difficult issue in our society." He noted that immigration has become a "political football" over the last ten years and said it is his personal belief that "it's just time to deal with this."
  • Some in Republican Party Fear Fight With Obama on Immigration

    There is concern firebrands may alienate Latino voters. With President Barack Obama vowing to press ahead on immigration, prominent Hispanic Republicans are worried about the reaction of staunch conservatives. They fear it will harm the party's ability to win over Latinos in the next presidential election and beyond. While immigration was generally a muted issue in midterm elections dominated by the GOP, Obama promised the next day to move ahead on his own to remove the threat of deportation or grant work permits to an unspecified number of immigrants living here illegally.
  • LUIS GUTIERREZ DEMANDS OBAMA TO ENACT AMNESTY FOR 8 MILLION ILLEGALS AFTER MIDTERM SHELLACKING

    A day after voters resoundingly rejected President Barack Obama's plans for massive executive amnesty in the midterms, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said Obama's first act should be to give amnesty to eight million illegal immigrants, which would be comparable in scope to the Senate's Gang of Eight amnesty bill. Gutierrez argued that "taking action is the first step in restoring orderliness and lawfulness to our immigration system" and urged Obama to "do as much good as you can do." "The president of the United States should act swiftly and use the powers he already has under existing law to address...

    There were two messages from Republicans on the morning after their sweeping victory in the 2014 midterm elections.

Both messages are correct, and reconciling them will be the toughest task facing new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. he first, and decisive, test will be Obama's proposed executive amnesty, through which--it is suggested--he may try to defer indefinitely the deportations of millions of people who broke the law to enter...

    Politico ^ | 11/2/14 | JONATHAN TOPAZ
    Mitt Romney predicted on Sunday that a Republican Senate would break through congressional gridlock and pass legislation on immigration reform and trade. Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee warned that President Barack Obama would move after Tuesday's midterm elections towards "amnesty" on immigration reform, a reference to the White House's decision to delay executive action on immigration until after the elections. But Romney said a Republican Congress would pass a more conservative immigration bill focused on border security that the president would sign. “You’re going to see a provision, first of all,...

    Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) this week signaled his support for undocumented immigrant children to have a pathway to U.S. citizenship. “For children who came with their parents into the country and did not comply with our immigration laws, they are guilty of nothing other than coming with their family,” Cornyn said during a Tuesday night Senate debate. “We ought to provide them with an opportunity not only to go to school, but eventually serve in the military or complete a college education and earn American citizenship.” In 2003, he voted for the DREAM Act, which would have created a pathway...

    Conservatives in Congress are drawing up their wish list for a Republican Senate, including “pure” bills, like a full repeal of Obamacare, border security and approval of the Keystone XL pipeline — unlikely to win over many Democrats and sure to torment GOP leaders looking to prove they can govern. Interviews with more than a dozen conservative lawmakers and senior aides found a consensus among the right wing of the Republican Party: If Republicans take the Senate, they want to push an agenda they believe was hamstrung by the Democratic-controlled chamber, even if their bills end up getting vetoed by...

    The White House on Wednesday cautioned against making assumptions about President Barack Obama's changes to immigration rules based on a new federal contract proposal from the Homeland Security Department to buy enough supplies to make as many as 34 million immigrant work permits and residency cards over the next five years. The Associated Press reported earlier in the day the contract proposal suggested that the Obama administration appeared to be preparing for an increase in the number work permit applications form of immigrants living illegally in the country. The U.S. government produces about 3 million work permits and residency identification,...

    In a new op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Republican strategist Karl Rove warns the GOP that should they make big gains in the November midterm elections, they should focus on passing legislation rather than “score-settling” with President Barack Obama. Rove writes that he anticipates Obama to reject bills sent to him from a Republican Congress but that Obama ” deserves the chance to show he’s matured as a leader and has the energy to govern.” From the op-ed: Mr. Obama is not the only person who must decide how to proceed. Whatever path the president chooses, Republicans must settle...

    Republicans will remain focused on a security-first approach to immigration if they win control of the Senate, Sen. John Cornyn said Monday. “Our Democrat friends want to eat dessert before they eat their vegetables on immigration. I just don’t think that’s going to work,” he said. -snip- “Is a Republican-controlled Congress going to pass a quick pathway to citizenship? No,” he said. “But would there be an opportunity to vote on — once border security was addressed, once the visa overstay was addressed and an e-verify system put in place, is there way then to look at how do we...

    Most businesses offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on their goods or services. We have heard about it all time, most of us even taken advantage of this offer from time to time. In light of this, it would be interesting to ask whether the U.S. Chamber of Commerce offers the same level of guarantee to their members that the rest of us get from them. Because if they do, it is about time their members start asking for their money back. Members of the Chamber join because they need a voice in Washington to fight against the federal intrusion we...

    Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."
