Pro-Amnesty Republicans In “Damage Control”

The Republican immigration plan we are to believe has been in place for about a year contains this sentence, “There will be no special path to citizenship for individuals who broke our nation’s immigration laws – that would be unfair to those immigrants who have played by the rules and harmful to promoting the rule of law.”

Their one page position paper on “immigration reform,” which was put together a long time ago (so we have been told) was never going to grant amnesty (again, so we have been told.) The Republican leaders are now trying to sell us the story that the poison pill of “no amnesty and no voting rights for those here illegally” was always what they intended to present. To believe this, you must believe that this document, which floated around Washington for several months, was the only major document since the Manhattan Project that was not leaked in its entirety.

What’s more believable is that because they have had the phone lines set on fire with calls demanding no amnesty, John Boehner and Paul Ryan HAD to try to float the implied story that all of this was always a Rope-A-Dope of the Democrats to box them in on the issue. They’re telling us, “We snookered the Donkeys this time because we let them believe we were for amnesty but we never were. They’ll never vote for this and we can blame them for amnesty’s failure.”

According to their happy face version of things, the Lincoln Day dinners across the country should be packed with formerly nervous rank and file Republicans saying things like, “I knew it all along,” “I knew Paul Ryan was a stand-up guy and had some secret plan,” or “They really understood all the time, they knew what they were doing.”

It is very doubtful this will happen.

It is simply not credible to believe that this was the plan from the start. Washington is way too porous to believe this.  So what is the explanation of all of this?

Boehner and his pals wanted to do everything we thought they wanted to do. They wanted to sell us out to the Chamber of Commerce and use its money to squeeze out TEA party movement candidates so they could run the House as a RINO plantation, but they didn’t figure on our fury.

They underestimated us; keep the phones and Emails coming. We will not hear about them since the media won’t report them, but something made the GOPe add the poison pill. I’m betting it was TEA party pressure.

    Why don’t democraps stop being the lying, cheating, immoral, unfair, sleazy, unethical cronies that they are. Democraps need immigration amnesty for the 11.7 million votes:
    1 The Left understand that honest elections kill them (they need people voting 8 times each to win).
    2 Democrats just can’t win without cheating (especially voter ID for illegals).
    3 They buy votes with “free” stuff (citizenship for illegals).
    With no constitutional jurisdiction in the area of states laws regarding illegal immigration, Obama sued states such as Arizona and Alabama for their laws preventing and prosecuting illegal immigration.
    Thus immigration should be part of our national security rather than state borders.
    What will happen:
    The “Gang of Eight” amnesty of 20 million illegal aliens will result in an additional 100 million within the next three decades. Those are the scientifically projected figures by Fogel/Martin in their “US Population Projections.” (Source: http://www.fairus.org). 8 senators will allow illegality by making it legal, they will increase legal immigration from 1.2 million to as high as 3.1 million annually.
    obama will rule by executive amnesty:
    A party-line vote of 224-201 was aimed at blocking implementation of Obama’s 2012 election-year order to stop deportations of many so-called DREAM Act individuals. Democrats on the House floor reacted with boos when the provision was added to a routine spending bill for the Department of Homeland Security. obama has threatened to veto the overall legislation on budgetary grounds. It nevertheless stood as a stark warning from conservatives who dominate the ranks of the Republican House majority about attempts in the Senate to grant a chance at citizenship to an estimated 11 million immigrants residing in the country illegally. And the White House reacted sharply, saying the House-passed measure would affect “Dreamers.” Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in a statement that the vote prohibits obama “from implementing executive amnesty” without congressional action.
    Is this an impeachable offense: Whereas, Obama usurped the authority of Congress by issuing an executive order in June 2012 declaring that illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. before they turned 16 and who are younger than 30 would not be deported – essentially duplicating the DREAM Act which failed to pass in Congress;
