JOHN BOEHNER ON AMNESTY:'I WANT TO GET IT DONE'
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/...
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said that he wants to get amnesty legislation done this year even as he insisted that the immigration reform he and President Barack Obama discussed in their White House meeting was not "amnesty."

You losers don't get it.

The people who make the rules in this country WANT illegals. Rich Republicans and Republican business owners want them. Democrats want them. Hell, even most libertarians want them.

It's just the uneducated, right-wing yahoo Republicans, those with no money and no power, who feel "threatened" by illegals, that want to get rid of them.

So just realize that as long as the only people who really want to "get rid" of the illegals are bottom of the barrel Republicans (Hell, lets just be honest and call them what they are- white trash Republicans), they aren't going away. Because the wealthy Republicans, who make the rules for the Republican Party, WANT illegals to work in their businesses, even if they won't admit it in public.

That is why John Boehner is unfit to be a representative and it's totally ridiculous that he is the speaker. We should give the chair to the illegal alien parents who brought their kids here. The kids just need to be deported.

It's just not bottom-of-the-barrel types who mistakenly think the GOP represents their views on illegal immigration. It is also the white working middle class. Republican Senator Jeff Sessions explains the situation and presents a case on how the GOP can regain the votes lost to the Democrats. He also explains how both parties have been raping them for the last 40 yrs or so.

Yes, all the crooks want them but we who want our immigration laws respected and enforced are the losers? You're out of your mind if you think only the uneducated whites don't want them here. Why are you throwing out the race card here? Illegal immigration is against the law! Illegal aliens have taken jobs from blue-collared Americans by working for less. They are costing us billions in tax dollars. WTH is wrong with you?

No "race card." Just facts.

Democrats don't care. Libertarians don't care, Rich Republicans don't care.

So what does that leave? POOR Republicans. White trash Republicans if you prefer. The uneducated dregs of the Republican Party.

Nothing "racist" abut that. I'm white. I'm just laying down the honest truth for you. It's "classist," but it ain't racist.

Democrats are for illegals, as are Libertarians. Wealthy Republicans (who control the GOP, btw) are for them too.

Only the dip shit uneducated loser Republicans, who fear losing their job to an illegal who can't even speak English (how much of a loser do you have to be to lose a job to a Mexican who has no education and doesn't even speak English?). are against illegal immigration, and they DO NOT MATTER. No one cares what they think because they have no money.

Sorry, that's the way it works in the USA- money talks and BS walks...

Seriously, son, if you "lose your job" to a Mexican who doesn't speak English and has a third grade education, you need to re-evaluate your own life. Don't blame Pedro, look in the mirror and GET YOUR OWN SHIT TOGETHER.

For God's sake, if you can't beat out an uneducated Mexican for a job, what the Hell is wrong with your sorry ass?

If you can't beat out an uneducated Mexican for a job, what you are is part of a system that taxes you into requiring far more than corporations are willing to pay. Nothing more.

Meanwhile, we can all talk about dummy-dumm-dumm white trash Republicans who can't do nuttin but when it comes down to it, there's a whole lot of those people who can't do nuttin, until they decide to do sumpin!

For now, let's just flap our hands and make new sign language widdem flippers until dat sumpin really IS sumpin.

I see your just another uncivil POS in here. So all Democrats favor illegal immigration? There are no non-rich middle class Republicans that are against illegal immigration? And yes you are throwing out the race card by calling poor whites trash.

FYI, I am retired so I have no fear of losing my job to illegal aliens however I feel for the American worker that has lost their job or had their wages reduced due to cheap, illegal labor. So don't call me son! You're an idiot if you don't know that employers who hire them give a damn about skills, language or education. They are only hiring them to increase their profits. Your azzinine insinuation that American workers are inferior and therefore can't compete is sheer anti-American BS and you know it. Never met a pro-illegal yet that is willing to admit the truth but instead demonized Americans. You fit the bill exactly! Take your hate and lies and shove them where the sun don't shine!

Viva Jeff Sessions. Sessions for president. We can't afford another pro amnesty president. Too many idiots in the oval office have been pushing amnesty lately. If we had a president like Sessions it would free up a lot of time congress has been wasting on amnesty. Maybe then they could deal with our out of control spending, our oversized government and those stupid free trade agreements that are sending all our decent jobs overseas.
