Boehner says no immigration deal until Obama enforces laws

Chances for a broad immigration bill to pass this year took a major hit Thursday when House Speaker John A. Boehner ruled out any action until President Obama proves to Republicans’ satisfaction that he is serious about enforcing the laws and no longer will try to work around Congress.

Just a week after Mr. Boehner appeared to jump-start chances for immigration by releasing House Republican principles for a bill, his comments erased most of that momentum.

“Listen, there’s widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws. And it’s going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes,” the Ohio Republican said at his weekly press conference.

Immigrant rights groups were stunned at the reversal and warned of drastic electoral consequences among Hispanic voters if Republicans refuse to act.
CNN released a poll Thursday that suggests voters care more about granting citizenship to illegal immigrants than they do about boosting border security.

    The majority of Americans want the law of the land to stand and secure all the borders from Mexico..Personally myself NO ILLEGALS FOLLOW THE LAW ON THE BOOKS AS THEY ARE..

    The only reason why 0bama is jamming Amnesty down our throats is:
    When Sheriff Joe arrests 0bama, 0bama doesn’t want to get deported.

    Ol’ Boner did not come up with this on his own, but it is a good idea and about time the party pushed OTraitor and Eric the Red to do their jobs.

      So, as long as your family was allowed into the US, it’s now okay to seal the borders? Did I get that right? Of course, I am assuming that you are not Native American here.

          That “Clown” is an illegal alien.

  • mort_f says:

    A question to Bohner, Are you only talking about Immigration Laws, or the many laws that Obama has categorically stated that he will not enforce, or the Laws that he has violated on a daily basis? Did the Oath of Office have any meaning?

    What would be the point of a lawless “democracy” where mob rule determined the composition of society and the level of corruption in government? When the people are no longer concerned with morality and ethics as a foundation for law and order and acquiesce to an individual’s “right” or “freedom” to choose to do whatever s/he decides to, that society is in danger of collapse. The justice system is irrelevant because there are no universally-applicable standards derived from criteria which best affect the good of society, simply from the standpoint of cost, a non-partisan and non-religious basis for deciding what ought to be allowed or ought not to be allowed. The conservative position has NOTHING to do with ethnicity or prejudice and everything to do with policies which affect the viability of the United States to be and achieve for its citizens those goals enumerated in the preamble to the Constitution which form the purposes for it as the law of the land and the reasons for which the country was founded. Tragically, it has often been minority-group politicians who have championed a special-interest minority while disregarding the provisions of the constitution, viewing the idea of “constitution” as that which it is possible to do. Not many individuals in the U.S. can pay their purported share of the National debt, which, according to recent reports is approximately $100, 000 for every man, woman and child in the country! Viewing the concept of “constitution” from that perspective should make politicians just a bit nervous! When are they going to get serious about reducing the causes of debt increase from human need which requires government spending? Surely, a reduction in the number of people who want to become citizens of the U.S. is one way to begin to correct the problem.
