Paul Ryan Suggests GOP
Candidates In Midterms Should
Run On Giving Illegals Citizenship

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/21/2014 11:31:18 AM

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) suggested that Republican candidates in this year´s midterm elections should run on granting a pathway to citizenship for all of the country´s illegal immigrants. Ryan, who had reportedly been working behind the scenes with Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) to get House Republicans to support a broader immigration bill, said that he was "having problems" convincing conservatives to support immigration reform, which he said was "very important." In a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg News, Ryan said he supported a "path to legalization" for all of the country´s illegal immigrants. He said illegal immigrants should be able to "earn citizenship"

Comments:
Oh no!!! Hasn´t he seen the polls that Americans don´t want this?? I´m just sick with worry what those fools will do when they get back to Washington. Obama is going to do whatever he wants anyway. He should have unequivocally stated that nothing will be considered until that border is secure. This is insane and outrageous!!

Paul Ryan is wrong. A GOP pro-amnesty campaign theme won´t shift one vote to the R column. It would just stifle Republican turnout and give away seats to the democrats. Ryan is either a fool, or a traitor.

Another illegal immigration pimp sounds off. Is there anyone here surprised by this? Besides the Cheerleaders, of course.

Paul should stick to budgets, numbers, taxes and deficits and leave the big, important stuff to those who have the best interests of the whole United States at heart...not just the Chamber of Commerce who supports him with huge donations.

This guy Ryan is a political dummy and appears to be a supporter of "social justice" as supported by liberal elements of the Catholic Church and other such entities.

If the Republicans facilitated citizenship for all the illegal aliens now in the USA. they would essentially be handing the Democrats tens of millions of poor and uneducated foreign born socialist oriented voters in the years ahead. Only a Republican political idiot would facilitate anything like that.

I saw the interview. He said first secure the border, make sure it´s secure then you can talk about a way to put the illegals on a probationary status. Not amnesty. Not citizenship. If they want citizenship they have to go to the back of the line. There are a number of things we need to fix when it comes to immigration.

Tony Lee seems to have a personal vendetta against Ryan. Ryan did not say what the headline implies. Ryan´s immigration remarks are 6 and one half minutes into the linked video.

That´s Vice President Paul Ryan, right? The VP for President Romney and the ticket that swept to a landslide victory in 2012 because of their overwhelmingly popular beliefs? Thought so.

Ryan´s supposedly a budget genius yet he doesn´t explain how the federal & state governments can be generous hosts to millions of illegal immigrants and still get spending under control. Or, how Americans can find and keep jobs if there are illegals willing to work for less.

AND, until you stop the mass entrance on the border, and continue to give your Amnesty, they will keep coming here!

Can America give "Welfare" to the entire World ? That´s where we are going.

I would bet that the majority of those coming over our border, have NO intentions of becoming "Producing" Americans. They are here for what they can get, and send home to their families!

An example, how many of the current "Dreamer" illegals are making attempts of going through the citizenship process and becoming Americans? They have been in the country how long? All they ever want is their "Benefits and Rights", with NO effort on the actual work of becoming an American!

the law, in place for quite a while now, says if you wish to move here, you ASK FIRST. Period.
And the law prescribes penalties for those who willfully violate the appropriate provisions.
ANY proposal that does not include forcible and immediate removal of illegals, is amnesty. It just is.
Paul Ryan is no more nor less than a modern day Benedict Arnold and I spit on his shadow.

Just another RINO bought and paid for by the US Department of Crony Capitalism.

He said some nice things to take care of budget issues and was Mitten´s running mate, but them all bets are OFF when he starts spouting this AMNESTY crap.

"Path to citizenship" =AMEENSTY!

Get in line, follow the rule of law that is already established and emmigrate!

It is ridiculously foolish to just stand for nothing and allow this obama-planned INVASION play out.

Paul Ryan and the rest of the RINOs are out of touch with reality if they think we believe their pathway to citizenship rhetoric. This is all about amnesty and nothing to do with locking down the border.

Paul Ryan is a good man, a smart man but he truly does not have experience with ILLEGALS & their intentions. I do.

I had a guy work for me (legal now but it took over 20 years for him to get around to it) & he still doesn´t speak English or rather just enough to barely get by. At least he works.

I´ve known others who have absolutely NO intention of learning English, work or if they do, they send it ´home´ to Mexico. I´ve watched ´workers´ literally lean on their shovels for hours on street projects & snap to attention when the boss´ truck is sighted only to goof off again when he leaves. I overhead one legal in my office acknowledge pocketing some cash and saying "it´s OK, MR.X has lots of money, he can get more". I could go on....................

Well, we have to start somewhere and if Paul Ryan or anyone else wants to begin with securing...really securing...the border, then what´s not to like? Even ISIS laughs at our porous border. Every plan I´ve seen anyone in the GOP put forward requires all kinds of hoop-jumping for anyone here illegally, and all of them to be placed at the tail of an immigration line. Many will be deported, of course. Tony Lee, as always, creates a headline from fantasy.

If laws aren´t enforced now - resulting in this mass of illegals - I don´t see how more and different laws will be enforced or taken any more seriously by illegals, companies, foreign governments. I think if Mr Ryan would move his family to a less nice neighborhood, that might give him a little clarity and a taste of the perspective most of us legal citizens who pay the bills have.

There is no way that the borderline can be secured, in keeping with the plain English definition of secured, as long as Obama is in the White House, because Obama has formulated and maintained immigration policies that essentially allows all comers who have unlawfully crossed the borderline, even if they are caught by the border patrol, to travel to their destination inside the USA in accordance with the Obama catch and release policies that essentially undermine the effective enforcement of the immigration laws passed by Congress. Once inside the USA the vast majority of those illegal aliens simply disappear to await amnesty sometime in the future.

So maybe Republicans should tell all the illegal aliens before the election, in keeping with political untruthfulness, that they support granting them all US citizenship, knowing that will never actually happen because the borderline will never be deemed secure by enough common sense Americans to allow any such citizenship bill to ever pass Congress.

I disagree with him secure borders or not. It´s that illegal part that bothers me. They have already shown a propensity not to obey laws why do we want them? What do criminals add to the well-being of our country? No citizenship for criminals, and thus no welfare, voting rights, or any other benefits. If we can´t deport them then issue them work permits to be sure they are paying taxes. Deport them if they break any more laws. And no anchor baby citizenship either. No getting in line either. They could have done that and chose not to. It´s like letting the bank robber put the money back and go on his way if he gets caught. We can´t afford ´citizens´ like these. Their contribution is toward bankrupting the system.

Ok, ok. So the Establishment Republicans ALL say the border must be secured first. Funny, the last time I read about it the US Chamber of Commerce (the organization that funds all those GOP guys) does not want a closed border. They want a porous border with lots of cheap, unskilled, uneducated labor.

So now the question is, "Who do we believe? The Establishment Republicans who have lied to us many times before or their sponsors the US Chamber of Commerce?"

I´m going to bet on the Chamber of Commerce with all the money and calling the shots for the November elections.

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong.

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
