Top GOP: Illegal Alien Kids Have No Where To Go

From The Hill:

Boehner endorses push for citizenship for children of illegal immigrants

By Russell Berman | July 17, 2013  

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday offered an endorsement for a proposal to grant citizenship to children who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.

“This is about basic fairness,” Boehner said one week after convening a two-hour meeting to discuss immigration with his conference.

“These children were brought here of no accord of their own, and frankly they’re in a very difficult position,” he said. “And I think many of our members believe that this issue needs to be addressed.” …

Why? In what way are they suffering? What is keeping them from following the legal path to green cards and citizenship? A path created by Congress.

Cantor: Making Citizens of Young Illegals the Decent Thing to Do

By Elizabeth Harrington | July 17, 2013

(CNSNews.com) – Granting citizenship to illegal immigrants who were brought to the country as minors is the “compassionate” thing to do, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said on Wednesday…

“It is not only an issue of fairness, as the Speaker said, it’s an issue of decency, of compassion,” he said. “Where else would these kids go?”

Cantor continued: “Again, if they’ve been brought here as a minor, in many instances having no idea what was going on, knowing no other place than America as home, it is something I think that both sides of the aisle could say that is something that we support…

These kids were brought here by their parents, who are also illegal aliens. So they could go home with their parents. What is so hard about that?

Besides, Obama already solved the problem when he by-passed Congress in 2012 and imposed the ‘DREAM Act’ by executive order. Obama directed the DHS to ignore the law, and stop deporting illegal aliens brought to the country before the age of 16.

So what’s the problem?

Meanwhile, a suddenly admiring Associated Press does its best to try to help the Republican Party help itself:

Dems pin immigration hopes on GOP’s Ryan

By DONNA CASSATA | July 17, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats doggedly pursuing a far-reaching immigration bill are counting on help from Republican Rep. Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney’s running mate last year and an unlikely candidate for delivering the centerpiece of President Barack Obama’s second-term agenda.

Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman who is frequently mentioned in the GOP lineup of possible 2016 presidential candidates, stands apart from many fellow House Republicans in favoring a way out of the shadows for the 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. in violation of the law…

There is already a way for them to get out of the shadows. They could follow the legal path already created by Congress. Which already allows more people to become citizens every year than the rest of the nations combined.

Ryan is hardly a newcomer to the issue. In 1994, when he worked with Kemp, he wrote a 4,000-word rebuttal to proponents of Proposition 187, the California ballot initiative that denied benefits to immigrants in the country illegally. He backed the immigration overhaul bill crafted by McCain and the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., that nearly became law in 2007…

And we see what good that did him in the 2012 campaign, didn’t we? In fact, the news media never even mentioned it.

Just like we will never hear that some Republicans supported amnesty, if and when it is passed.

  1. Boehner turned out to be another in a long line of Republican traitors

    The Republican Party has become the tool of its Chamber of Commerce donors who are always on the make for more cheap labor. Apart from this, the Republican Party no longer serves any useful purpose. It no longer defends the interests of the American people, the Constitution, or the rule of law.

    It is merely the illusion of an opposition party. What we really have are two parties sharing power. Through their Congressional committee appointments and seniority system they set the agenda, control the money, and share out the spoils. The Republicans have become worse than useless –– they are the handmaidens of the radicals. They have become part of the problem.

    Since the Republican Party lacks the will to defend the interests of the American people, the Constitution, and the rule of law it should dissolve itself. Failing that it must be replaced by the people with a new party.

    • I totally agree. The GOP will never get another dime of my money, another hour of my labor nor will I ever hold my nose and vote for another ‘less than conservative’ candidate.

      If they can’t do the will of 65% of the people then the GOP needs to wither and die.

      What is so frustrating about all this is that the left is right on the verge of total collapse and the public is beginning to notice all their NSA, IRS and many other scandals, ridiculous foreign policy and ObamaCare. These little moderate ‘go along to get along’ weasels are so inept and have such a hunger to be liked and have nice things said and written about them that they are willing to sell the country down the river for their own egos.

      Uuuuuuggggghhhhhh!!!!!! These people are making me crazy!

      Agreed, but I feel that the chamber of commerce is a misnomer. If they really believe this will bring cheap labor they’re nuts. The theory makes sense, sure, but in practice it’ll never happen. Count on welfare ans this unions making sure of that.

      The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a big supporter of amnesty and increased foreign immigration. See its website :

      http://immigration.uschamber.com/

      The USCOC is behind a major “K Street” pro-amnesty lobbying effort on Capitol Hill, has provided Gang of Eight and Republican proponents with economic research asserting that amnesty and increased immigration are sound bases for future prosperity, and has run TV and radio ads for amnesty, including daily ads during the Rush Limbaugh show.

      http://www.politico.com/story/.....93222.html

      Americans for Tax Reform is another amnesty supporter; it was founded by Grover Norquist in 1985 immediately after he left the USCOC. ATR’s support is particularly egregious because increased immigration always results in increased welfare spending and, as a result, increased taxes and debt.

  3. I’m so sick of hearing about “fairness”. It always refers to being fair to illegals, or fair to terrorists, or fair to the welfare junkies. What about being fair to AMERICANS? Legal, born in country, tax paying, hard working AMERICANS. How can fairness to one group be so unfair for another? Doesn’t that oppose the very definition of the word?

    It’s not fairness, it’s not justice, it’s not even “social” justice (which I see as just another social disease). It’s about revenge… payback… or, if I may put it in terms the left will understand…
    Nanny Nanny Boo Boo. (Thumb firmly planted on nose’s end)

    With the passage of amnesty, the republican elites will have officially sold us all into slavery. The circle is complete.

    Ted Kennedy would be proud.

    does boner actually have any power in this traitorous party? I don’t understand why even the so called conservatives don’t simply stand in front of every available microphone and denounce these ridiculous amnesty plans. all they need do is point out that we already have effective workable laws, but they aren’t being enforced.

    these people intentionally work to line their pockets. period. they don’t give a fart about whether the country burns. if I’m wrong point out to me how the effects would be different if they dropped all pretense and announced today their agreement with that statement.

    It’s a double edged sword. If you speak of the nature of mankind that children are best with their parents, less kids drop out or end up in trouble with the law, so the children are best to go back to their own country with their parents.

    A child being separated and forced to live in America where all they’ve been taught since a very young age is they must lie to the bad Americans, and that they are forced to steal from Americans to survive, then leaving a child behind in America can cause such trauma. Then when they join gangs everyone will say poor thing. His parents abandoned him and went back to their country in America and left them.

    So, should we go back to orphanages since there are not enough foster homes as it is?

    They could put a child in the middle of the border. Put the Parents on the Mexican side with their arms held open. Let the child see someone on the US border with their arms open.
    (no bribing with candy and no holding the child back) Who will the child run to.

    There will also be a problem where parents will pay those guys in the truck to take their children so they don’t have to feed and take care of them.

    How soon before being an past or current illegal immigrant becomes an offical protected class and gets priority in things like goverment jobs and college. If they’re here illegally then send them home and let them apply like everyone else. Legalizing the kids is just going to open the door to the political hacks saying that the parents and families need to be legalized at the same time so as not to break up families. Then the extended families are going to get brought over here and it will just snowball. Legal immigrants are just getting kicked in the gut and told all their hard work is useless and that we want criminals here before them and the country doesn’t respect its own laws.

    Well, and then there’s this problem:
    The acts of Congress give great power to the Secretary of Labor over Chinese immigrants and persons of Chinese descent. It is a power to be administered, not arbitrarily and secretly, but fairly and openly, under the restraints of the tradition and principles of free government applicable where the fundamental rights of men are involved, regardless of their origin or race. It is the province of the courts, in proceedings for review, within the limits amply defined in the cases cited, to prevent abuse of this extraordinary power, and this is possible only when a full record is preserved of the essentials on which the executive officers proceed to judgment. For failure to preserve such a record for the information, not less of the Commissioner of Immigration and of the Secretary of Labor than of the courts, the judgment in this case must be reversed. It is better that many Chinese immigrants should be improperly admitted than that one natural born citizen of the United States should be permanently excluded from his country.

      Kwock Jan Fat was coming home and had some trouble at the gate. We could see an enormous amount of this from the south. Arizona, New Mexico and Texas have enormous native and immigrant populations with longstanding and current ties.

      First, secure the borders.
