Boehner prepares to push amnesty bill through House

House Speaker John A. Boehner announced Tuesday that he has hired a longtime advocate of legalizing illegal immigrants to be an adviser, signaling that the Republican is still intent on trying to pass an immigration bill during this congressional session.

Immigrant rights advocates cheered the move as a sign of Mr. Boehner’s dedication to action. Those who want a crackdown on illegal immigration said the top Republican in the House has moved closer to embracing amnesty by hiring Rebecca Tallent, a former staffer for Sen. John McCain and fellow Arizona Republican Jim Kolbe.

“Tallent’s hiring suggests he really does still want to push an amnesty through the House, which to me suggests that the immigration hawks still have their work cut out for them,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “She is a professional amnesty advocate.”

Ms. Tallent is leaving a job as immigration policy director for the Bipartisan Policy Center and will join Mr. Boehner’s staff Wednesday, putting her in the center of one of the thorniest issues in Congress.

Mr. Boehner has become a key figure in the immigration debate. He faces immense pressure from immigrant rights activists who want legalization and from House Republicans who are warning him not to pursue legalization until the border is more secure.

    Everywhere he goes people should be throwing rocks and worse at him!

    This is TREASON.

    Typical –

    Boehner pulls a boner. It is just another example of proof, that the GOP is no longer G, nor O. We live in a dictatorship, with a TV scripted sit-com playing from the halls of congress. Both parties receive their marching orders from the same money/power interests – with their differences created for effect. Right now, the only sane group in the political arena is the TEA party.

  • Expat says:

    Mr. Bohner, how does legalizing millions of illegals help the record high unemployment issue for American Citizens? How does that help our economy and record deficits when we have millions on public assistance because they can’t compete with 3rd world wages for a job? Fix the economy! Concentrate on Jobs for American Citizens. Prosecute those that hire illegal aliens and many of the illegals will leave on their own accord. Keep pushing against the Constitutional abuses of this rogue Administration. You should be looking out for American Citizens’ interests first.

    How sad you people are. THE AMERICAN people do want amnesty.
    Do your homework. The borders are more secure now than they have ever been. You cant be a christion if you deny these hard working immigrants their anmesty.
    I am a man who beliveves in the truth and you guys are spreading lies.
    Wake up either bring solutions or get out of the way.
    This is the 21st century.
    Stop the hatred and help to solve the problem, that includes telling the truth.THEN AGAIN you guys are hard pressed to do that.

    Boehner is a gutless scumbag pure and simple. He as do a lot of others probably have 3 or 4 illegal for him at his home.

  • Lloydl333 says:

    Control the border FIRST Boner. Get out og bed with the Dems and show some Conservative Balls. If the Republican Party HAS to depend on ILLEGALS to get elected, It is time for a Tea Party Party of clean out the Rinos from the Republican party. Man up you wusses..

  • Lloydl333 says:

    Boner needs to go along with McConnell and McCain.

  • elton123 says:

    Boehner is WRONG!!! Just yesterday I emailed him telling him no immigration for illegal aliens and no amnesty for illegal aliens and now I read this?? People — YOU need to put the pressure on your representatives and demand no bills until our borders are secured!!! Anyone on here going to do that??

  • AmericanIcon says:

    Dear fecal-matter-for-brains, please read Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution (you are familiar with the document?): “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections AND REPEL INVASIONS”; and Article IV, Section 4: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, AND SHALL PROTECT EACH OF THEM AGAINST INVASION…”

    Not only do you plan on rewarding these people for violating the law (who next? Murderers? Rapists? – oh, wait – some of these people ARE murderers and rapists), but you are committing treason by supporting an invasion and occupation of this country sponsored by a foreign government. At one time, that was an offense punishable by public hanging…

  • antiliberalcryptonite says:

    NO amnesty period!

  • shadowmerlin says:

    Hey! It’s John Vidkun Quisling Boehner!

  • Charles Kimberl says:

    Boehner is a sorry excuse for a Republican and even more as a conservative. He is a prime example of merely being one of the two wings of the same skanky bird. Conservatives in this country need to get rid of Boehner, McConnell and all like them.

  • mythoughtsare says:

    NO! NO! NO!

  • dahubb55 says:

    Yet another example of a rino caving into the emperor’s wants. Boehner needs to grow a pair, and stand up for the Americans he represents, not foreign interests. Boehner is not just a butt kisser, but he has his head so far up Obummer’s ass, that if Obummer turned suddenly, Boehner’s neck would break.

  • Jack Parker says:

    If there was ever a doubt that Boehner was a RINO, this removes it all. Here’s a bold idea, if you want immigration reform, secure out borders.

  • Johnny says:

    Hey boehner the above read says you are accepting pressure from groups in favor of illegals being amnesty. Well guess what We The People do not want it given. We want the illegals either sent back to once they came or put in prison for steeling their way into what is left of a free America. To date they have been given social security [they never paid into], drivers licences, a place to live, welfare, free visits to the emergancy rooms, and other things many Americans have to struggle to obtain. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING.
