Boehner to Obama: Immigration reform might still be on the table next year, you know

posted at 4:21 pm on September 3, 2014 by Allahpundit

Via Breitbart and DrewM, who notes that Hugh Hewitt’s guest host here is Rep. John Campbell — i.e. Boehner had one of his own guys pitching him this question, presumably because he wanted it to be asked. You can read that one of two ways, either as a threat to O not to go ahead with the executive amnesty he’s been planning if he wants comprehensive immigration reform to happen or as begging O not to go ahead with it. I read it as the latter, just because Obama holds all the cards once the midterms have passed. He’s leery of amnesty now because he fears a backlash at the polls, but come the morning after election day, those worries will melt away. Instead, at that point, he has every reason to do it and get Latinos jazzed about 2016. And once he does, Boehner will be in a terrible bind: Conservatives will be furious at O’s power grab and resolved not to reward him by passing any amnesty bills while moderates and the business lobby will be terrified that O just locked up the Latino vote for Democrats for decades to come unless Republicans pass an amnesty bill before 2016 themselves. If I were a pro-amnesty centrist like Boehner, my instinct after Obama called my bluff and issued his order would be to pass a bill ASAP next year, or even in the lame-duck session this year. That’ll reassure the donor class while giving conservatives the maximum possible time to get over their anger at him and the GOP leadership for selling them out. Again.

Something to chew on while you listen:

p

Either way, I hope we have some resolution soon. This endless amnesty flirtation between Boehner and Obama has dragged on longer than the David-and-Maddie build-up on “Moonlighting.” Which, of course, only makes it sexier.

“Immigration reform” is a sneaky way to use a positive-sounding term without saying what it really is: illegal alien amnesty.

McCain, Rubio, Graham and even Obama also deny they were ever for illegal alien amnesty, just for “immigration reform.”

NM Gov Martinez gives away part of the game that pro-amnesty Republicans are playing. They are avoiding the word “amnesty” (in favor of vague, positive sounding language like “reform”) and are even denying that they are for amnesty.
http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2012/11/16/susana-martinez-mitt-romney-comments/

The governor [Martinez] also said she hopes the party can change their tone, eliminating words like “amnesty” from the debate.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83960_Page2.html

After chatting with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer a few minutes before, she [Martinez] said that Arizona’s restrictive immigration law is not the type she would implement in her state.

“And it can be tackled without using the word amnesty,” she said. “People can be in this country legally and contributing, and they can come here to do all kinds of jobs, not just jobs Americans don’t want, all kinds of jobs, get educated, the whole nine yards, but be here legally. And there’s a variety of ways of receiving that kind of status.”

Every candidate for office at the Federal, State, and Local level needs to be asked to explain their positions on ILLEGAL immigration very specifically, AT EVERY SINGLE CAMPAIGN STOP between now and November.

Voters need to make it very clear that they will not vote for any candidate who puts the interests of ILLEGAL aliens ahead of the interests of U.S. Citizens and Legal Residents.

Schadenfreude on September 3, 2014 at 4:47 PM

I have been disgusted to see supposed conservative media allies avoid using the term “illegal alien amnesty.” Instead we get vague and even positive sounding terms like “immigration reform.” There’s an effort to blur the line between legal and illegal illegal immigration.

Most Americans oppose illegal alien amnesty. Don’t let anyone tell you that there is a strong desire out there among voters for amnesty or that immigration law enforcement is merely a concern of the conservative “base.”

That’s why pro-amnesty supporters have to lie to voters, hide their true intentions and pay for ads like this:

VIDEO: http://youtu.be/ecrUDjMlf5s. (Gives impression Graham and Rubio are for getting “tough” on illegal aliens)

And here’s a Zuckerberg-funded, fake “conservative” ad that tries to trick voters into thinking the Republican sellout amnesty proposal was what was needed to “get tough” on illegals:

VIDEO: http://youtu.be/l9XRF_kqIN4

Politicians like Martinez, Ryan, Rubio and Paul are all on the same page with this.

The Chamber of Commerce and others are putting a lot of money towards trying to convince conservatives that these amnesty programs are the opposite of what they are.

faraway on September 3, 2014 at 4:41 PM

I appreciate the question – let me try with a personal – real life example:

I use the following example – I personally experienced:

– I hire someone from England to come to the U.S. and work for my company for 1 year
– I get him a 1 year work visa

Now

- Explain the law and the procedure to get his family (a wife and 2 kids) over here for that 1 year.
- How many agencies must you involve?
- How many British agencies must you involve?
- What issues might stop his family from coming over for that 1 year
- What issues might indirect family members play in gaining those visas

If you can honestly answer just those – then you know how completely screwed up our immigration system is.

See – there is much much more to this issue than just amnesty.

Fight the Amnesty issue with all you might – you are right to – but don’t argue the need for reform.

Add – the news today about how we cannot track student visa’s – we cannot track people who go fight for ISIL and them fly back to the USA on their own passport.

We have massive issues.

jake-the-goose on September 3, 2014 at 4:53 PM

This back and forth charade is silly.

1) Republicans are successfully and openly campaigning on border enforcement first and against any form of amnesty.
2) Democrats are not campaigning openly on open borders, amnesty, and legalization. They are instead hoping Obama waits until after the election to do it through executive action.

Republicans are campaigning on their position. Democrats are not.

Democrats don’t want the political fallout associated with their position because they know that a majority of Americans do not agree with them.

airupthere on September 3, 2014 at 4:54 PM

Illegal alien amnesty is probably the most important issue. It would eventually transform the electorate, making it impossible to ever again elect a conservative president, affecting every other issue. Texas would turn blue in about 15 or so years, and the damage would be irreversible. If you like what has happened to California (which once elected Reagan governor) and you want to see that happen to the entire country, then vote for pro-amnesty politicians.

If single-payer, universal healthcare has been the crown jewel of liberalism, then illegal alien amnesty is the crown itself, since it would make all other liberal gains possible.

If democrats truly thought their position on amnesty and immigration was a winning issue for them, they would center their entire national campaign around the issue. They say that it is such an important issue that Obama must take executive action, yet they refuse to make it a central part of their campaign during an election in which the balance of the Senate is at risk. Gee, I wonder why.

We are not seeing the following Democrat Ads:
Republicans in the House refuse to pass the bi-partisan immigration bill from the Senate. Vote for Democrats.

We need to legalize millions who came here illegally and we can’t pass a bill doing so because of Republicans. Vote for Democrats.

Instead we get democrats urging Obama to take executive action because they know that they won’t be elected on a wide-scale if they run on doing it legislatively.

Remember that much of the pro-amnesty political activism is rooted in anti-Americanism and racism against whites.

“You old white people. It is your duty to die.” -Cebada
PRO-AMNESTY ACTIVISTS SPEAK OUT!

Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets; “Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die … Through love of having children, we are going to take over. ”

Richard Alatorre, Los Angeles City Council. “They’re afraid we’re going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They’re right. We will take them over … We are here to stay.”
Excelsior, the national newspaper of Mexico, “The American southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico without firing a single shot.”

Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez, University of Texas and La Raza founder; “We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosion is in our population … I love it. They are shitting in their pants with fear. I love it.”

Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democratic Party, “Remember 187 — proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens — was the last gasp of white America in California.”

Gloria Molina, Los Angeles County Supervisor, “We are politicizing every single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country … I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, “I’m going to go out there and vote because I want to pay them back.”

Mario Obledo, California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and California State Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Governor Jerry Brown, also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton, “California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn’t like it should leave.”

Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General , “We are practicing ‘La Reconquista’ in California.”
Professor Fernando Guerra, Loyola Marymount University; “We need to avoid a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos …”

THE U.S. VS MEXICO:
On February 15, 1998, the U.S. and Mexican soccer teams met at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The crowd was overwhelmingly pro-Mexican even though most lived in this country. They booed during the National Anthem and U.S. flags were held upside down. As the match progressed, supporters of the U.S. team were insulted, pelted with projectiles, punched and spat upon. Beer and trash were thrown at the U.S. players before and after the match. The coach of the US soccer team said, “this is the most painful experience I have had in this profession.”

jake-the-goose on April 24, 2014 at 9:18 AM

Not to argue – but the “flood” has stopped – our economy has become a deterrent for immigration.
I don’t have a solution – I don’t pretend to. But if I were smart enough to articulate a solution it would be build around making the economy explode – so that illegals could find good good work – not need welfare – want to be part of a massive upward growth model – want to become successful and make their children’s lives better.

That is all the GOP needs to say in the era of ISIS. Don’t get into Reform versus Amnesty. We can debate that issue until the cows come home after November and if we ever get something a majority of R’s in the House and Senate agree on, this administration probably would not sign it anyway. They like issues rather than results.

If the administration has decided on an executive order so that they get 100% of what they want, it does not matter what the GOP might compromise on because this administration doesn’t do compromise.

Why? We will be stuck with millions of welfare people.

This is the incredible fleet of robots helping to provide food for almost 1,000 patients at a new £430 million super hospital.

Southmead Hospital in Bristol has deployed a fleet of 12 automatic guided vehicles to deliver meals to its 950 patients.

The droids, which start work at 10.15 every morning, are capable of opening doors, operating lifts and picking up food without any human assistance.

They transfer chilled dishes to kitchens scattered around the hospital, where they are heated and then served to patients.

After completing their rounds, the machines return to their charging stations until they are called upon again for the next meal.

Catering manager Gary Wilkins said it was as simple as pressing a button and the machines did the rest.

He said: “They (the robots) are very slick and very quick. At first you are a bit worried about whether it is all going to work, but they are amazing.”

The automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are also used to transport waste, linen, supplies, sterile instruments, endoscopes and pharmacy items around the building.

They operate in designated areas, which are primarily staff only, and have safety features including the ability to stop if something gets in the way.

They are able to navigate their way along “virtual tracks” using infra-red laser scanners and comparing what they sense with an in-built map. It is hoped the machines, which measure 1,700mm x 610mm x 306mm, will soon be introduced in other parts of the hospital.

The newly built Southmead Hospital was recently criticised for its food, after one patient took pictures of poor portions. But Sharon Fortune, head of facilities for hospitality, defended the food available to patients. She said: “We never run out of food on the wards, people can always ask for extra. It is up to the staff on the ward to judge it.

“We don’t know if it is a frail old man we are serving or a large rugby player so it’s up to each ward to know their patients and serve food accordingly.”
