Republicans Seeking to Grasp Defeat Out of the Jaws of Victory

Immigration Reform is the issue.

 

No bill has come from the Republican HOR and Obama has said he will act by the end of the year.

 

Republicans are dead set against any immigration reform bill.

 

"McConnell pledged to use government spending bills to rein in Obama's immigration actions, telling TIME magazine after the election that "the way that you push back on executive overreach is through the funding process.""

 

While McConnell expressed wariness of allowing a government shutdown, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has called on Republicans to fight it with every weapon in their arsenal. Thickening the plot is Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who has set up an active war room dedicated to undermining Obama's plans on immigration, and is next in line to chair the Budget Committee. "

 

This from Lindsay Graham

 

"My sense is this is a dangerous miscalculation by the president," he said, arguing that reform should happen legislatively, not by executive action. But he cautioned that it's "hard to see how we can win the presidency in 2016 if we're seen as blocking immigration reform."

 

Is Obama picking a fight with Republicans on this subject to cement the Latino voter with Democrats for 2016?

What are the odds of a Democrat picking a fight over race politics? Gee I don't know.

The Democrats definitely need the ILLEGAL ALIEN vote!

Another more important view.

 

"Within hours of voters’ giving Republicans legislative control in Washington and dealing President Barack Obama a sharp rebuke in the process, Latino groups clamoring for immigration reform began telling both parties that inaction before the 2016 elections will come at a price.

 

“For us, the election of 2016 starts today,” said Ben Monterroso, executive director of Mi Familia Vota. “The vote taken yesterday sends a very clear message. We want action on issues that matter to our community … The Republican Party now has the responsibility to govern.”

 

Somehow I don't think Republicans are listening.

 

"Speaker John Boehner’s announcement Wednesday that Republicans plan to file a lawsuit against the president and his administration for what they describe as the unconstitutional exercise of his executive powers on a host of issues. One of them is immigration. Republicans fault Obama for creating in 2012 a new administrative status that shields from deportation many of the offspring of illegal immigrants brought into the United States as children."

Immigration? Illegal Immigration. It's doesn't need reform. We need to ship them all out to sea and nuke the boats. Period.

 

 

Nuking ruins fishing grounds.

Lets just make reefs.
