Key House committee to hold hearing on DREAM amnesty for young illegals tomorrow; Update: DREAM groups oppose

posted at 8:01 pm on July 22, 2013 by Allahpundit

Looks like it’s pretty pro-DREAM on balance, too:

2 p.m. The House Judiciary Committee holds a hearing in 2141 Rayburn entitled “Addressing the Immigration Status of Illegal Immigrants Brought to the U.S. as Children.” On the first panel will be Representatives Jeff Denham, Mike Coffman, Cory Gardner and Luis Gutierrez.

Speakers on the second panel include Barrett Duke, vice president for public policy and research and director of the research institute at The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention; Margie McHugh, MPI co-director at the National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy; Pam Rivera, U.S. citizen sister of a Dreamer; and Rosa Velazquez, executive director of Arkansas Coalition for DREAM.

The guy to watch there is the verrry amnesty-friendly Luis Gutierrez, as he’s a a member of the House’s “Gang of Seven.” Democrats don’t want to be put on the spot by having the House pass a path to citizenship for DREAMers but not for anyone else, since that would force Reid and Schumer to choose between killing DREAM themselves in the Senate or accepting half a loaf on legalization instead of the whole loaf they want. That’s what makes Gutierrez an X factor. If he testifies in favor of DREAM, it gives the GOP some extra cover to go small on amnesty.

I’m convinced that Republicans are going to line up for some sort of targeted legalization like this, if only to deny the left an easy “they screwed Latinos again!” talking point for the midterms, but I was surprised by how much pushback there was last week to Boehner saying that it’s time to do something for young illegals. Apparently there’s pushback in the caucus too:

“While I think there’s a lot of folks over here that are sympathetic to that notion,” [Rep. Matt Salmon] said of the Kids Act, “it’s also not going to come without a lot of political angst, and I don’t know why we would go through that if Reid says and the president says it’s dead on arrival, and they’re not interested in us doing it.”

Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) said he would not support legislation that grants legal status to any illegal immigrants before border security bills are not just passed by the House but fully enacted into law.

“My position is, first things first,” he said. “Again, we have not fixed a broken border system that has been broken for decades, and to me, our focus needs be on solving that problem first. And then we’ve got plenty of time to get around to those other issues.”

Conservative Reps. Tom Price (R-Ga.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) said they’d have to read the proposal but put themselves in the “border security first” camps.

If nothing else, calling it the “Kids Act” is some shrewd branding by Cantor. His chief obstacle isn’t that the caucus is intractably opposed on the merits, I think, but rather that some of them are suspicious that if they pass anything, the conference with the Senate is going to produce a compromise bill that somehow reeks even worse than the Schumer/Rubio concoction in the Senate. There’s no way the Dems will agree to a truly limited amnesty; they might agree to something like “DREAM Plus,” let’s call it, where younger illegals gain a path to citizenship after some border improvements are made and then there are separate triggers down the line to amnestize the rest of the population. Would the House GOP agree to that? No. Would Boehner agree to that and decide to break the Hastert Rule one last time in order to bring the bill to the floor? He was scrupulously vague about the prospects for reform in the House on CBS yesterday. Assume nothing, my friends.

In other news, McCain’s decided that co-drafting a terrible bill isn’t enough and therefore it’s his duty to rally amnesty lobbyists to spend the next few weeks leaning on House Republicans to come up with something nearly as terrible as he did. Exit quotation: “Here is a fact: We are not winning.”

Update: No dice, say DREAM advocates. They want a total amnesty, not something for the kids.

“We will not stand for anything that separates our families,” said Greisa Martinez, an organizer with United We Dream, the largest group representing young unauthorized immigrants who have lived in America since they were children. Martinez’s mother crossed over to Texas from Mexico illegally to seek work when Martinez was just 2 months old. “For someone to ask me to leave [my mother] behind, to say she’s unworthy of citizenship, it’s un-American,” Martinez said…

United We Dream voted as a group in September to reject any immigration reform bill that does not offer a pathway to citizenship to most of the country’s undocumented, saying it will take all or nothing. Cristina Jimenez, United We Dream’s managing director, told reporters on a conference call on Monday that she was “outraged” by the Kids Act, which she said would “condemn our parents and our families to second-class status.”

Is that what Gutierrez is planning to say tomorrow?

“For someone to ask me to leave [my mother] behind, to say she’s unworthy of citizenship, it’s un-American,” Martinez said…

I wonder if Ms. Martinez’ mother would feel the same way if she knew her daughter had a chance to achieve US citizenship now? Wouldn’t she willingly sacrifice to see her daughter safely converted to a US citizen? Wouldn’t she be willing to wait to see if something was done for her since she was already willing to risk breaking the law to bring her daughter here years ago? Technically, this whole “DREAMER” thing is a recognition that the parents broke the law while the kids just came along. Plus it’s not like someone is saying that the Mother has to be sent back for the Daughter to become a citizen.

This just shows that there is nothing to be done to satisfy these folks other than wiping away all the crimes committed in violating the immigration laws and handing them their voter ID cards with the big “D” on it.

American Citizens have a DREAM.

We have a dream that:

republicans will actually grow a pair and oppose the wholesale destruction of our nations’ sovereign borders.

That the tens of millions that are unemployed or underemployed won’t be sold out for even cheaper labor as greedy businesses look to the politicians they own for more concessions.


And we dream of a day when we WON’T HAVE ONE PARTY PROGRESSIVE RULE in this country with two masks (Democrat and republican).

Behold the republican royal family has a new king in waiting.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — On a recent evening, George P. Bush was telling a packed room of wealthy North Texans how he got his start in politics. It was May 1979 and the then 3-year-old was in a Houston park, clutching a balloon and watching his grandfather, George H.W. Bush, announce his first campaign for president.

“It was my first memory,” Bush recalled. “I was wearing a George P. Bush, er, uh, George H.W. Bush for President T-shirt.”

Drowned out temporarily by laughter, Bush insisted it wasn’t a Freudian flub. An aide approached a reporter scribbling notes and jokingly commanded: “Stop writing!”

The light moment underscores the dilemma of the latest scion of an American political dynasty.

How does Bush keep his family’s powerful past from overwhelming his present? How can he ease into his first campaign for elected office amid lofty expectations that he will help save a Republican Party in Texas that’s endangered by the state’s booming Latino population?

Bush, 37, says he’s more than just a famous surname. Both his grandfather and uncle were presidents; his father, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, may run for the White House in 2016.

DREAM groups oppose because it’s never been about kids or opportunity or any such rhetorical nonsense. It’s about subverting the laws of the nation to legalize as many Democrat voters as possible.

Not that they aren’t already on the rolls voting Democrat… but to legalize it and finish off all pretense.

And as far as the opposition, good. Let them show these establishment GOP hacks that there is no compromise here. They want submission. If Boehner wants to yield, then force him to be gutless all the way and reap the consequences of doing so, rather than halfwaying and lying his way through a piecemeal surrender.

Mr Martinez.. I travel a lot to Asia and while I love the people I loathe how some just want to jump the line.

How are your demands any different?

As a child of a person who crossed our borders illegally we owe you nothing, but some of us want to show compassion in that you were an innocent byproduct of this illegal act. As such many of us want to open our arms for the innocence but to tie a demand about being seperated is showing you are an ingrate.

I say offer citizenship to children of illegals and the parents can then apply like others who waited in line with their children being sponsors.. but the wait is the same as everyone else’s.

So quit thinking your parents etc will be able to cut in line in front of those who used the system properly..

So, the Republicans in DC are too stupid to read the stats on how the newly legalized immigrants are going to vote.

And they are also too stupid to recognize that even if they are the ones to grant the amnesty they will never, ever get the good will for it?

IndieDogg on July 22, 2013 at 8:33 PM

In the real world, where I have no choice but to live, there are rules.

If you are here illegally, no matter your circumstances, my ranches and other businesses cannot hire you. If your parents are here illegally, and you are not somehow an American citizen (by birth here), we cannot hire you either. This has nothing to do with why or how any of you got here, it’s just the law.

If you’re from Mexico, take a look at how your country handles individuals from other countries trying to come into Mexico from Central and South America or other places. They are jailed immediately and sometimes eliminated from the planet. It’s a no tolerance policy from the get-go.

So, save your tears for someone who gives a sh!t, and go sell crazy some place else.

Well, why doesn’t Boehner wipe his eyes, and get up and keep this garbage off the docket. Or Boehner is going to be voted out of leadership and primaried and truly shamed among Republicans.

I mean shamed like Nebraska Dem Senator Ben Nelson who was the deciding vote for Obamacare. Nelson went home to the vitriolic disapproving hoots and hollering of crowds everywhere. Of course, Nelson didn’t run for reelection. Boehner’s betrayal would be as bad as Nelson’s if this “young illegals” thing gets through the gates.

A point I made before: Even amnesty pusher Jeb Bush acknowledged the fertile nature of the illegal immigrants from Mexico. There may be 10 million adult illegals ready to vote, but there’s a lot more children.

Senators cancel immigration meeting with lobbyists amid backlash http://reut.rs/14Ara4U
========================

By Rachelle Younglai and Caren Bohan

WASHINGTON | Mon Jul 22, 2013 8:33pm EDT
*****************************************

(Reuters) – Architects of the Senate’s immigration bill on Monday canceled a meeting that had been planned with business groups and other supporters to try to rally momentum for the legislation, in a sign of how difficult it will be to enact the reforms.

Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, Republican Senator John McCain and other members of the “Gang of Eight” that shepherded a sweeping immigration bill through the Senate want to enlist business, labor and religious groups to help persuade members of the House of Representatives to back reform.

All members of the bipartisan group of senators except Republican Marco Rubio held a meeting with business groups last Tuesday to talk about strategy in the Republican-dominated House, where immigration reform faces strong resistance, especially for the pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants contained in the Senate bill.

Several business representatives who participated in the meeting said they were concerned that the Senate’s involvement would not play well in the House. Republican members of the House have repeatedly rejected the Senate’s bill and are working on smaller enforcement and work-visa bills that do not include a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States.

Some of the business groups “were outraged,” said one lobbyist, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks were private. “Even if what (the senators) said was right, they know how unpopular they are in the House,” the lobbyist said.

Step 1:

Call your Representative to find out when they will be holding Town Hall Meetings in your area during their August Recess so you can ask them in person what their position is on allowing anybody who has disrespected our laws by being in our country ILLEGALLY to remain in the U.S.A.

Step 2:

If you don’t like the answer your Congressional Representative gives you, make sure there is a candidate in your District who is ready to run against the incumbent in 2014 and will make sure our Federal laws against ILLEGAL immigration are enforced.

I agree. I’m not asking you to leave your mother behind. So don’t separate from each other. Both of you can go home and stay together.

Your mother knowingly broke the law. Blame HER, and let her come out of the shadows of America and back into the sunlit uplands of her own country — and have her take her daughter with her.

At an open borders rally in Reno, one of the “dreamers” stood up and said that she came to America illegally because she lived in the cartel area near the border, and was “forced” to enter America illegally to escape the danger.

Why didn’t she just stay in her own country, and take a bus to Cancun, where all the American tourists go????

I don’t want to separate them from their kids either. Therefore, kids get booted with Madre and Padre. Amnesty means get the frick out and apply legally if you want to avoid prosecution. Path to citizenship is the same as it is for everyone else who wants to come here: namely by applying from one’s own country, and not showing your face until invited.

Even the notion of anchor babies is unique in the world, and based upon a perverse misreading of a footnote in a decision regarding the 14 amendment. Get this kids. You are not citizens just because your madre popped you out on this side of the border. The sooner the law recognizes that, the sooner we will begin to recover from this insanity.

Since these illegal aliens, many of whom are well over the age of legal majority and still maintain their illegal status in this nation, who were purported to have been brought to this nation by their parents, parents who were then shattering federal immigration law and who are still, to this day, shattering federal immigration law, clearly either have no understanding of, or regard for, the rule of law, have demonstrated their complete contempt for US federal law as well as a complete disdain and contempt for the rights of the American citizens and LEGAL immigrants in this nation, I say…

…give them NOTHING.

Enforce existing federal immigration law and institute nationwide mandatory E-verify, secure the borders, end subsidies and benefits for illegal aliens, and redefine ‘natural citizen’ to require that one parent must be a US citizen or legal immigrant to garner automatic citizenship for children born on US soil.

End the extortion of these special interest groups and foreign citizens who are bent on usurping the rule of law and shattering US federal law at will.

So, these ones from Mexico.

They voted over and over for the no good elite scum bags who rob every penny from every Mexican by lies and fraud via the corupt goverment in the cities, towns, states, and Central Goverment in Mexico City.

Thus the mindless ones in Washington D.C. see these ones as their path way to being able to run the U.S. just like the failed state of Mexico.

They are not dumb, they are not “out of it”, they are not just doing the easy thing for votes.

No they have greed and power in mind, a ruling class of the top elite families of the Two Party Evil Money Cult who are just the hired hands of the big bussiness and Rockafeller, Morgan, Forbes, Chase, Mellon, etal families who pay their re-election.

It is U.S. and the Constitution they intend to destroy with these newly minted useful fools of the vote for dole checks kind.

They prepare a coast to coast “reservation” that they will be the forever overseers of.

They see that many of the U.S. do not care enough to even vote, let alone fight aginst this on going crime and fraud they lust for.

Boehner is not the cause, we are by not standing up in the past, and not enough yet.

They will not let up unless we rise up and start vote, vote, vote, and doing what it takes to stop them.

Do not back down, go to any event they have, best guess they will go to ground and lay low issue misleading statments to throw U.S. off the sent of treason.

Just say no.

1. La Raza atty’s wrote the Senate Bill.

2. La Raza atty’s wrote this “Dream Act” bill Boehner lust for.

3. A vote for this will be an act of treason.

The crime of the Obama Care has gone unpunished so they think they are imortal and without any limits now.

I think that would be Jeff Dunham…Although I think you know that.

Was funny anyway.

Teehee! Caught me.

I heard one of the illegals testifying will be Mr. Jalapeno….on a steeeK.

we need a membership list of La Raza going back 40 years

That list would be an eye open deal.

Question: When they legalize the ‘dreamers’, doesn’t that effectively legalize their families as well? I think we have a policy that we don’t break up families.

A Government of Traitors.

Selling out their nation for a mess of pottage.

May they all die at the hands of the Dreamers or their spawn.

I’m so disgusted with these people.

INC on July 23, 2013 at 12:39 AM

Update: No dice, say DREAM advocates. They want a total amnesty, not something for the kids.

This is what happens when you try to negotiate with blackmailers. Once they’ve gotten you to cave, it’s pretty much open season from then on.

The “Boehner’s Gonna Cave” countdown continues….

Well then effm all. The all like being illegal? Fine. Only idiots think any sizable number of those illegal Latinos would ever vote GOP because we could never out pander the Dems. So why would the GOP ever consider supporting more than we think appropriate?
