Good news: Amnesty quarterback Chuck Schumer gives Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake a “pass” to oppose benefits for illegals

posted at 2:41 pm on May 21, 2013 by Allahpundit

A vignette from yesterday’s kabuki Judiciary Committee hearing, preserved for posterity by Byron York because he knows the potential for amnesty-defeating conservative outrage in watching Chuck Schumer pull Republicans’ strings on immigration reform.

In case you’ve lost track during Scandalmania, the committee is still debating, i.e. summarily voting down, amendments to the Gang of Eight bill. Yesterday Jeff Sessions proposed one that would have blocked illegals who’ve been given probationary legal status under the proposed law from receiving the Earned Income Tax Credit. That presented a dilemma for the committee’s Gang of Eight members, Schumer, Durbin, Graham, and Flake. They’ve been voting together as a bloc to kill amendments from the left and (mostly) from the right in the interest of preserving the bill’s “delicate bipartisan compromise.” If Sessions’s amendment passed, liberals might have walked away and the whole deal would have collapsed. The Gang would much rather see a crappy bill like its own pass than see the bill improved via amendment at the price of a diminished risk of passage, so Sessions’s proposal simply had to be defeated. The problem in this particular case was that Graham is up for reelection next year and will have enough headaches spinning his amnesty support without also having to defend a vote against barring illegals from receiving tax credits. So Schumer did him and Flake a little kabuki favor: Knowing full well that Sessions’s amendment was going down in flames anyway since Democrats control the committee, he magnanimously agreed to let Graham and Flake cast meaningless votes in favor of it. Turn up the volume on your computer and listen closely at 3:10 below; you’ll hear him clearly say, “Do our Republicans have a pass on this one, if they want? Yes.” (Our Republicans.) The amendment dies, but Graham gets to go back to South Carolina and announce that he’s a stalwart opponent of benefits of for newly legalized illegals. And then he’ll turn right around and head back to D.C. to twist arms in favor of the bill, despite the EITC provisions in it. It’s a total sham.

The next phase of the sham will begin soon, as the Judiciary Committee wraps up and sends the bill to the floor — under cover of Scandalmania — for a possible quick Senate vote. That’s why you’re seeing prominent conservatives, including the boss emeritus, issuing their open letter to kill the bill today: There isn’t much time left in the Senate to stop it. And it might not be just Graham and Flake on the GOP side who end up voting the bill out of committee; Democrats are also working hard to woo Orrin Hatch to vote with them in order to send it to the floor with bipartisan support beyond the Gang itself. Just as I’m writing this, news is breaking that Hatch and Schumer have reached a deal on visas for high-skilled immigrants, which should lock up his support. Now he’s one of “their Republicans” too.

And let’s not forget that Hatch was just reelected last year after posing as a staunch conservative for a short while(even Palin endorsed him). Flake pulled a similar scam, as did McCain back in 2010. At least South Carolina voters have a chance to retire Grahamnesty next year. But it’s getting to the point where we’re gonna have to get our candidates to sign pledges for a lot more than just opposing tax hikes. Cuz their word means squat given what’s going on with the amnesty bill.

Amigos – comrades – muchachos – friends, we are gathered here as an edifice of the great glory that is now vanishing and the intuitive feeling, based on the assumption as Mencken once said, “He who underestimates the American public will never go broke.” This is merely a small indication to behold and to perceive that which has gone way into the behind and to that which might project .. I mean go forward … out of the mouth … i mean .. the future…we’ve got to rip up the constitution so we can rip down those outdated borders! This is the main deterrent upon which we have gathered our strength and all the others who say, “What the hell did that get?” – We don’t yet know.

Clearly today we must all be aware that political expediency and latino ethnicity takes precedence over rule of law and constitutional procedure. However you say – WTF ! – what does this mean… in relation to the tabulation whereby we must once again realize that the great reconquesta story is now being rehearsed before our very eyes, in the rise of Marco Rubio… indicating that only a two-faced … I mean a bi-faced … I mean a bi-polar … I mean a bi-lingual hombre can receive…the award for reconquesta, unlike Kenyan Hussein Obama whose reconquesta plans don’t drink water.

And as Miller once said in one of his great novels- what did he … that language is only necessary when bilingual communication is endangered. And you sit there bewildered, and Pinter who went further said “It is not the lack of communication, but fear of communication.” That’s what the damn thing is that we fear – communication – especially all the Spanish communication that’s even on a box of Wheaties now. Damn it! And through all this Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity have attained, and have created for themselves serenity, and it is only their cognitive dissonance that is keeping them alive in their absurity.

Senors y Senoritas, Ladies and Gentlemen. The time will come when a first world America will outlive its usefulness. Marx, either Groucho or Karl, I can’t remember which, maybe it was both or maybe it was Harpo, once said that America is the opiate of the people. I say that when America outlives its usefulness and becomes a majority latino nation , then opium…will be the opiate…Ahh that’s not a bad idea… we are going to need that badly especially when the booze runs out …

And the completely unbiased and bi-partisan panel, has determined to give the grand prize to Marco Rubio for his EARNESTY’S RAINBOW. Now EARNESTY’S RAINBOW is a token of this man’s genius…he told me so himself and repeatedly … that he could change perceptions by calling his plan for knocking down those pesky borders EARNESTY …in other words, he could have been more specific, but rather than allude to an articulation of the mundane, he has come to the conclusion that brevity is the importance of our nation’s shallow first world existence. God damn!

Marco Rubio’s . EARNESTY’S RAINBOW – is a small contribution to a certain degree, since there are over seven billion people in the world today. 450 of them … million live in the United States and Mexico which is a very, very small amount compared to those who will be miserable and dying elsewhere…Well, I say that you will be on the road to new horizons, for we who live in a society where citizenship is a commodity and a politician can become a TV personality, it’s not easy to conform if you have any morality…I, I, I said that myself many years ago…

But I do want to thank la Raza…I mean the RNC … I mean the DNC and it’s subsidiary the RNC, the organization for the $1,000 in affirmative action latino scholarships they’ve given out…tonight they took in over $4,000,000, but they do have expenses for their consultants you know, and I think that I have another appointment. I would like to stay here, but for the sake of brevity I, I must leave. I do want to thank you, and I want to thank Marco Rubio – acting el Presidenta of la Raza Mexiamerica and also Mr. Obama – acting Pharaoh and Drone Commander of the World – and also I want to thank Professor Irwin Corey and thank you. …

Gotta love Schumer’s descriptive language, “Our Republicans”.

That’ll leave a mark.

The obvious solution to the immigration debate is to say that only American citizens (preferably those who have at least once filed a tax return) can qualify for ANY government payment or subsidy. That simple chage ends a lot of immigration pressure, and motivates illegals to register asap.

MTF on May 21, 2013 at 2:51 PM

Gee, that’s mighty white of Schumer.

If the thing is so ‘delicate’, then it shouldn’t be passed; we need solid laws with teeth. But this is another sham, perpetrated by career politicians who would never be caught dead in a neighborhood full of illegals. Or of any other minority, for that matter.

By the same token (no pun intended), any minority individual(s) seen in Schumer’s neighborhood would be stopped and questioned by police, if not also frisked.

Yeah — I really think highly of these guys. /

Final Destruction of America bill.

I’ll go along as long as we get this: Full future reciprocity from the rest of the world for US citizens, full $7 trillion up front funding – half from Mexico, the other half from the UN. Full healthcare, full rights to employment, property ownership, business ownership, and the right to “fly under the radar” until we so choose while US citizens are living in another country.

Think it’s crazy? This simply puts US citizens on level terms with what we are offering the rest of the world.

oldroy on May 21, 2013 at 2:54 PM

Why do illegals need welfare?
Don’t these hard working poor persecuted people come here to feed their families and do the jobs Americans don’t do ?
If these people get on welfare, who will pick our lettuce and strawberries, wash our dishes, mow our lawns and raise our kids ?
This country will collapse without the labor and financial contributions of these illegals :(

Every member of the political class who has taken a hand in this shameful amnesty will never get a vote from me for any office. IF that means that I have to write in a candidate, rather than vote for the GOP candidate, so be it.

I will not support any member of the political class who has demonstrated a complete disregard for the rule of law and a clear disdain for the rights of the citizens and LEGAL immigrants of this nation by supporting AMNESTY.

Our immigration laws were conceived and written to protect the citizens of this nation from predation by illegal aliens. Our elected officials, from police to members of congress, are duly sworn to protect the interest of the citizens of this nation, not to be concerned with the ‘plight’ of those who willfully shattered federal law, and every other law they found to be inconvenient, in their efforts to take what they wish from the citizens and legal immigrants of this nation.

I suggest that all of us take careful note of the name of every member of congress who supports AMNESTY in any way, and when they next stand for election, no matter where their state or district lies in relation to your own, be certain to volunteer your time and your money to see that they are no longer members of the polical class, but, rather, take their place in the private sector.

When Spector flipped, he flipped hard…and voted for lots of lefty ideas. I think that’s McCain and these other guys. They’ve live their lives in the closet…they are center left and have for various reason had to run as conservatives…as opposed to just running as Democrats. Running as Democrats would be the more honest way

if this weren’t so sad, it would be ridiculous. I am especially disappointed in Rubio, who had to hitch his wagon to this travesty when there are so many other things he could have put his name to (like the economy, budget, etc.).

these repub idiots are getting played like bush sr. after pledging no new taxes. he got talked into it and then they turned around and happily used it against him.

Marcola on May 21, 2013 at 4:52 PM

I had posted this in another thread. The timeline of how the amnesty scam unfolds
01-15-13 politico,

Rubio is working on several bills with both Democrats and Republicans that he hopes to introduce in the coming weeks. Among them: a proposal with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) dealing with migrant and seasonal agricultural workers; a measure with Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) to overhaul the visa process for high-skilled immigrants; and Rubio’s alternative to the DREAM Act to help certain undocumented young people achieve a permanent legal status.

It’s unclear which of these approaches Ryan may ultimately back, but the GOP’s 2012 vice presidential candidate gave a resounding endorsement to Rubio’s overall efforts in a statement earlier this week. And behind the scenes, the two men are quietly seeing whether they can forge a partnership rarely seen among top-level prospective political rivals from the same party.

just a couple trivial fixes. Ryans supposedly ‘tempted’ to join Rubio

02-12-13, for the SOTU, the public was massaged to expect Rubio to punch back at Obama’s amnesty schtick. Instead, Rubio surprises with an amnesty loaded sob story

Rubio joins Gang of 8 (who knows when he really joined)

04-23-13 Frontpage about Zuckerberg’s group FWD.us:

FWD.us, the organization formed to push Silicon Valley’s priorities in Washington, will advocate for a new immigration law through a subsidiary group created specifically to court conservatives. Americans for a Conservative Direction will spend seven figures to run ads in more than half a dozen states, according to strategists who sketched out the organization’s plans.

May, Pro Amnesty Ryan/Rubio ads flood talk radio from Bogus front group. Board of Americans for Conservative Direction includes Jeb aide,GW Bush aide, Ryan aide. They can buy local ad space that hosts do not control.

Now floating balloons about possible Ryan/Rubio run for office

Cruz is the only one I identify as trying to make sense of this Horror Thing called the Schumer-Rubio Amnesty.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, though: if the GOP passes this Thing, I’m re-registering Independent the next day. I won’t tolerate this mess, nor being associated with a political party that’s “bargainable” on the issue of amnesty by various degrees.

It’s a mess and the GOP needs to refuse to pass it, however, whatever works. Rubio is now disgusting to me. So are the others who are letting Schumer stick his ugly tentacles into them.

DITTO.

I see this behavior all.the.time from and by the Left but at this point, I’m not staying associated with the GOP if this now has become their method, if they pass this mess.

I can understand certain industries needing ongoing temporary workers (“guest workers”) but burning down the land to accomplish that is irrational and it’s evil — this legislation has taken the cause of one or two problems and meshed into it a nation-wide wave of destruction.

What we need to do is solve or resolve or even “repair” problems one at a time, distinctive legislation to address each issue that Congress keeps referring to as “broken”. Instead, what’s being attempted via Schumer-Rubio is a huuuuge indulgence of Leftwing, Socialist welfare-government expanding “relaxations” of restrictions, laws, ethics while calling it some “reform” measure to accommodate a few problems.

Rubio’s credibility is in ruins. Graham’s certainly is, so is McCain’s. They’re more Democrat than Republican and the rest of the GOP seems eager to be more Democrat, too.

Lourdes on May 21, 2013 at 6:19 PM

Sessions told the committee. “As these [registered provisional immigrants] are all established and get a Social Security number, they will qualify, it appears, under the law, for earned income tax credit. I’m not sure the sponsors understood that, because they’ve insisted that RPI aliens will not receive any federal benefits under the bill. But [the Gang bill] would grant such benefits to millions …”

I include Sessions with my earlier remarks supporting Ted Cruz.

But what Sessions says there is but the tip of the Amnesty Kraken — there is so much more in this legislation that spells doom for the US in order to indulge people who have broken our laws and don’t feel too badly about it, if anything, seem to think we should reward them and this bill certainly seems to be doing that.
