CAN JOHN BOEHNER LEAD ON IMMIGRATION IN 2014?

Rating: 7 votes, 3.86 average.
by Chris Musillo

The best chance for Comprehensive Immigration Reform in many years was squandered in 2013. An exciting spring led to a successful bipartisan Senate Bill 744 in June. That bill was never seriously considered by the House. Tea Party Republicans effectively held control of the Republican Party’s majority power and refused to allow CIR to come to a vote in spite of Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) interest in an immigration bill.


The Tea Party wing may have overplayed its hand in October’s budget battle that shut down the federal government. After several weeks both parties’ centrists wrestled control back from the extremists and compromised on a bill to end the government shut-down. The wrestling back of control may have signaled that the centrists are ready to lead. If so, Comprehensive Immigration Reform may once again be targeted as the type of policy that both parties can get behind.


Most significantly, Maj. Leader Boehner hired Becky Tallent in December 2013. Ms. Tallent is a long-time advisor to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) who has repeatedly made reform the United States’ immigration laws a priority. Reportedly, Ms. Tallent’s hire was made because of Rep. Boehner’s desire for an immigration bill.

    John Boehner has hired one pro-reform staffer. It will take more action than that on his part and on the part of other House Republican leaders to pass immigration reform.

    Does hiring Rebecca Tallent really mean that Boehner is committed to reform and is now ready to take on the Tea Party, or is is her hiring just a bone being thrown to reform supporters?

    I am only asking.

    Hi Roger- I do think that the Tallent hire is a good start. Whether it is all just lip service is an open and fair question?

    Its obvious to most Americans now that the U.S. government cares more about finding jobs for new foreign workers than for unemployed citizens and legal residents is proving correct? It?s just disgraceful that politicians we voted into office would sell out the job seekers in their own constituencies. It?s already apparent that the Senate amnesty bill would allow another 30 million across our borders; not satisfied with 1 million plus that arrive here annually. Both political parties are to blame for the gigantic costs associated with criminal illegal aliens skirting our laws and deserve to just live here, without prosecution or any consequence. Not only that there is little penalty under President Obamas reign, but we are forced to pay for all benefits involved?including food stamps and subsidized housing. It just goes to show how Democrats think, when they would offer special privileges to foreigners, and omit veterans from observing the monuments of World War 2. Americans have been PLAYED to long, and still remain gullible by the progressive lies from both Sen. Harry Reid and House Speaker John Boehner, with their Special interesting following demanding more immigrants?educated or not?


    But honestly how can open our doors wider, when we have mass poverty in our country. More people who will have to be fed and housed, when huge unemployed cannot get unemployment benefits to feed their families. The sleazy Democrats are now accounted for more millionaires than their counterparts in the GOP. We can only look to THE PEOPLE?S TEA PARTY, which is splintering away from the Republican Establishment. The Tea Party is moderation in Conservatism, a grassroots movement that calls awareness to any issue which challenges the security, sovereignty, or domestic harmony of our beloved nation, the United States of America. From our founding, the Tea Party symbolizes the voice of the true owners of the United States: WE THE PEOPLE. The Tea Party has a growing membership of Americans from every Race, religion and political relationship, who have been lied to, by arrogant and delusional bunch of opinionated people and have unceasingly ignored the will of the people.

    President Obama and his agencies have repeatedly trampled the Constitution. Blatantly defies Congress and the House Aids terrorists and is demanding Congress awards amnesty to people who entered our country illegally. His signature health care legislation is unconstitutional. Millions are losing their insurance plans and their doctors because of it. He's put all of us at risk with his reckless actions one after the other and he and Senators as the Harry Reid of Nevada continue to ignore the House and instead implement presidential orders undermining the ?Rule of Law?. As cited in the Federal register. Rep. Jim Gerlach, (R-PA)., has proposed a bill that would permit the House and Senate to sue this Administration for failing to impose the law or/and violating the U.S. Constitution. Gerlach says this legislation is required due to ?unparalleled use of executive discretion to selectively apply or enforce duly-enacted laws,? which includes immigration laws. .
