Well, it appears that the Republican Establishment is determined to start pressing for incremental amnesty, in order to compete with the Democrats for the “Mexican” vote. Of course, they are couching it in the politically correct terms of “Humanitarianism” and “fairness”.
Frankly, these RINOs sound like a bunch of Democrats.
‘‘Paul Ryan says we cannot have a permanent underclass of Americans, that there needs to be a pathway to citizenship,’’ says Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., who has been working relentlessly on immigration legislation. ‘‘He is my guiding light. I know I get him in trouble every time I say it.’’
Senior White House aides often mention the Wisconsin Republican as crucial to the prospects for legislation this year, hoping the Republican with impeccable conservative credentials will sway recalcitrant House members. Ryan also is a reminder of two other powerful forces backing an overhaul of immigration laws — the Catholic Church and business.
Ryan is a practicing Catholic who made a point of attending Mass every Sunday during the jam-packed 2012 campaign; the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops strongly favors the first major changes to immigration in 27 years.
Ryan also represents a southeast Wisconsin district in a state that relies on the manufacturers of Waukesha engines, Kohler generators and numerous supply chains. The companies are counting on immigrants to fill future factory jobs.
‘‘The American economy needs immigration reform, certainly the Wisconsin economy does,’’ said Kurt Bauer, the president and CEO of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, the state’s chamber of commerce.
Ryan made his appeal at last week’s closed-door GOP meeting, urging Republicans to seize the moment and opportunity.
He ‘‘made some very good points about how immigration is part of our history, it’s made us great as a country. The diversity of America is one of its greatest strengths,’’ recalled Rep. Tom Reed, R-N.Y. ‘‘I will heartily agree with that. I think all of us in the conference accept that and believe that, and that’s where we recognize that this is a problem that has to be dealt with.’’
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday offered an endorsement for a proposal to grant citizenship to children who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.
“This is about basic fairness,” Boehner said one week after convening a two-hour meeting to discuss immigration with his conference.
“These children were brought here of no accord of their own, and frankly they’re in a very difficult position,” he said. “And I think many of our members believe that this issue needs to be addressed.”
Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) are crafting a bill to deal with children brought to the U.S. illegally. They have said it will differ from the Dream Act in the Senate, which would grant citizenship to children brought to the U.S. illegally who meet certain requirements.
Back on June 28, 2013, townhall.com reported
Speaker John A. Boehner reiterated to House Republicans this morning that he will not bring up the Senate’s immigration overhaul for a vote in the House. “Weeks ago, I — along with Eric, Kevin, Cathy and Bob Goodlatte — issued a statement making clear that the House is not going to just take up and vote on whatever the Senate passes,” Boehner told lawmakers, per a source in the room. “We’ll do our own bill, through regular order and it’ll be a bill that reflects the will of our majority and the people we represent.” … Democrats have ratcheted up pressure on Boehner to bring up the Senate’s bill even if a majority of his own conference opposes it, if the House is unable to pass legislation of its own. But the speaker last week all but guaranteed a majority of his majority would have to back any immigration bill before it would come to the floor.
What is now obvious is the fact that Boehner, Ryan, Cantor, and the rest of the Republican Establishment are the most gullible politicians on the planet.
These lunatics actually believe that, if they grant incremental amnesty to the illegal immigrants who broke into our sovereign nation, these lawbreakers will repay them by voting for RIINO Candidates in the Midterms and beyond.
Sure, they will. And, I actually resemble the late Paul Newman. Trust me.
Perhaps the GOP Elite realize that the Conservative Base will not continue to support the squishy non-Conservatives they continue presenting as viable candidates for the House, Senate, and, especially, any “Moderate” Nomination for a Presidential Candidate.
Think about it…when has a RINO actually won a Presidential Election for the GOP?
Dubya doesn’t count. Even with his lavish spending, he was waaay more Conservative than he was a RINO.
You would think that these guys would learn by now, that us “creepy a@@ crackas” living here in the Heartland actually believe in good old fashioned American Values.
We believe in morality that isn’t relative. (Just ask Hollyweird about how their Summer Box Office receipts are doing.)
Our ethics are not situational.
We include the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Our children belong to school organizations like the Fellowship of Christian Students and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
We proudly fly our nation’s flag above every other nation’s.
And finally, we Conservatives, out here in America’s Heartland, believe that Patriotism is taught as part of an American child’s upbringing, and loyalty is something that you earn.
These are not things you can buy.
And, those politicians who believe that, are not ones worthy of our support.
So, the question is, Mr. Speaker, , et al…
Can you buy off enough illegal immigrants to replace your Conservative Base?
Don’t bet on it.
I hope y’all have a trade to fall back on.
Until He Comes,
