Reince Priebus: Immigration reform not dead
Politico, by Burgess Everett

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 11/10/2013 9:05:26 AM

Don’t count Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus among those who believe comprehensive immigration reform is dead this Congress. Despite exasperation among reform advocates that the House has refused to vote on any major immigration bill — particularly the Senate-passed legislation — Priebus said that his “gut” feeling is that the House will indeed pass an immigration overhaul in the next 14 months. “Something significant is going to happen because obviously mass deportation is not an option. I don’t think doing nothing is an option. And I believe most people would agree that something significant needs to take place. Now what that

This how the GOP will lose in 2016...

I will not support any RINO that votes for immigration reform! Hear that, John Boehner?

Yes, Mr. Priebus, something significant does need to take place. The southern border needs to be made 100% secure and illegal aliens need to be deported. And, the Republican Party needs to get out of bed with the traitors (Mr. Tom Donohue) at the US Chamber of Commerce. It´s only goal is a never ending supply of cheap, third-world labor for crony capitalists. Republicans are almost as anti-American and despicable as Democrats.

11 million is the government number..which means it is at least 25 million !
Start deportation, that will motivate some to go home on their own, cut off all free stuff. I don´t care if it takes 25 years to deport them all, at least the gov´t would be acting in the best interest of the American People.

Rancid pubis is full of what all of the GOP --elected and unelected, are full of: pure arrogance.

They believe that We, The Conservatives will do what we´ve been doing for the last umpteen election cycles: vote for the He´s Not As Bad As The Democrat candidate, and so far, we´ve proved them right.

We, The Conservatives have compromised our vote, and They, The GOP believe that we will keep compromising while they can just keep going down that same road: compromising with the cannibals, and they all can keep their Pure Platinum health care and retirement, and stay on the Inside The Beltway cocktail circuit.

It´s all about power, and they´ve got it.

Someone is going to have to take that power away from them.

Look at John McCain and Boehner, et al. They will sell out America for a favorable headline in the NYT.

How do we end it?

Here´s your significant immigration (invasion) reform, enforce the freaking laws, close the border (shoot to kill if you have to) then boot the invaders out when you catch them. Simple enough Rinse don´t play with the communist democrats who will benefit from Mexican votes.

Isn´t the primary purpose of an RNC Chairman top unite the party around a core set of principles in order to win elections? What core principle is Rinse & Repeat Mistales defining with his plea for amnesty? Rinse has to go, and go soon if Repubs are to have a major comeback in 2014. If Priebus doesn´t get tossed out, we will never be able to stop Obama and his band of Merry Socialists.

Would wager that RNC fundraising is doing as well as ObamaCare enrollments.

By facilitating the liberal Democrat designed so-called immigration reform bill which contains the liberal immigration advocate´s "whole enchilada" amnesty and a special path to citizenship, the Republicans will be handing the Democrats tens of millions of new foreign born voters in the years ahead. Republicans who do that are political idiots, as historically about 85% of previously legalized aliens when eventually given US voting rights become Democrat voters.

The establishment and cheap labor Republicans who support the Democrat immigration plan think that the Hispanic population will vote for them if they go along with amnesty, but ask yourself, why would those Hispanic voters vote for the Democrat lite party when they could vote instead for the real liberal Democrats, who will always promise to give them more then the Republicans can do and maintain their façade of continuing to be a relatively conservative party.

In the years ahead all those millions of new Democrat voters will make it certain that the Republicans will have no chance to win future national elections. That will probably be OK with the establishment or liberal Republicans, who would be pleased as punch to remain in the minority, as long as they can continue to suck off their share of Washington DC big political money.

they turn on their own. No way will I help the GOP generically, but I would donate to those specific individuals I hope to help win. and they are for the most part Conservatives. I will NOT help Rhinos like McCain, Graham, etc who not only refuse to help their own party but in fact help the Democrats.

I still have this question:
If the illegals become legal. They will work
minimum wage or more. They will be citizens or green card people.

The jobs they are currently doing(That American won´t do /s) are the factory or farm worker jobs that pay illegally less than minimum wage. So when they become legal who works these jobs the current illegals are working?

Seems like more illegals will come in.
This is why I hate the RNC, Bushes, Big businesses(RNC and DNC). They all basically want workers to be serfs,slaves, peons.

The 2 parties want a Middle Ages setup
with a few wealthy on top and serfs everywhere else.

Well, that didn´t take long. As my colleague Edward Malnick reports, the first gay Church of England priest – a canon, no less – today married his boyfriend. Canon Jeremy Pemberton, 58, a divorced hospital chaplain and father of five, wed his long-term partner Laurence Cunnington, 51. We´re not told where, but obviously it wasn´t in an C of E church. That´s against the law. But they may well be able to have their marriage blessed in church because that´s only "against the rules" as opposed to illegal. Campaigners predicted that Canon Pemberton would be the first of many. I think

A mention of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), a potential 2016 presidential contender, brought boos from a conservative crowd in New Hampshire on Saturday. Speaking at the New Hampshire Freedom Summit, a gathering of conservative activists and figures organized by Americans for Prosperity and Citizens United, billionaire Donald Trump said Bush’s recent comments on immigrants coming to the U.S. as an “act of love” were “out there.” “You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day,” he said, with quiet boos and angry murmurs erupting from the crowd at the mention of Bush’s name. “And he was talking about people that come

Liberals have lately been employing a political term of abuse that was once mainly a weapon of the right.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

The departure of Kathleen Sebelius from President Barack Obama’s cabinet removes a focal point for criticism over Obamacare’s troubled rollout, right at a moment when the White House can blunt attacks with enrollment numbers that exceeded targets. Senate confirmation hearings on the president’s choice to succeed Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell, will give Republicans days of media exposure for their criticism of a program that remains unpopular. Those hearings will now be held months ahead of midterm congressional elections, helping diminish the impact on voters. Sebelius’s departure also addresses demands from some Democrats for a change

BUNKERVILLE -- The gathering of rancher Cliven Bundy´s cattle in northeast Clark County has been stopped by the director of the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy is meeting this morning with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie to discuss a possible solution to his dispute with the BLM. Metro Officer Jesse Roybal confirmed that Gillespie was in the Bunkerville area this morning to meet with Bundy. The BLM had been using contract cowboys to round up Bundy´s 900 head of cattle that have been grazing over 600,000 square acres in northeast Clark County for more than 20 years without his payment of grazing fees.

Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of
