Twitchy’s coverage of Laura Ingraham

    “This could become a matter of national security.” — Ain’t no could about it – it is. And both parties are ignoring it. At their peril.

  • mickeyco

    Too many RINOs agree w/ Obama on “immigration reform” to want to muddy it up with this. Boehner will see it doesn’t become an issue.

  • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

    Republicans waste a political opportunity . . . that could never possibly happen. Sometimes I wonder how much money the liberals are paying the Republicans to be inept.

    • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

      If we had unbiased journalism, the Republicans could hit hard on this topic. But with every media outlet in Obama’s back pocket except Fox, the Republicans making a big deal out of this would end up hurting them because the MSM would be spinning it into a story of racism instead of what the overall issue truly is.

        See, one COULD actually say that the presence of so many Latin American (and some East Asian) no-visa-status economic immigrants undercuts the ability for there to be paid higher wages to American workers (eliminating one particular dead horse being whipped), and their presence in America holds back the ability of blacks to BE those higher-than-minimum-wage workers.

        Of course, then the Right would be accused of pitting one minority against another in a cynical divide-and-rule strategy. The Right would be accused of feigning concern for American-born black people, attempting only to dupe them by claiming that it’s the Latinos who are holding them down, not the white power structure.

        The dirty little secret is that the GOP elite types like the idea of cheap labor, and the Dems see potential voters, either by ballot-box fraud in the short run, or, in the long run, by anchor baby citizens to vote Dem in perpetuity. No “jackasses” seemingly want to acknowledge a rather large “elephant” in the room.

    Having successfully implemented a flawless health-care roll-out, our president pivots to the urgency of illegal citizenship to distract from his brilliance.

    I have an idea: For every politician that has to zip it about the “social issues” another one has to pipe down about “immigration reform.” Deal?

  • notenoughtime

    Agree 100%. Where are our elected officials and why are they silently sitting back.

  • JeffWRidge

    While certain individual Republicans definitely get it, the GOP leaders/planners rarely seem ready to utilize Democrat weaknesses and foul ups. For years now I’ve wondered just how much the Republican leadership wants to win. They seem content to play second fiddle to the Democrats’ Nero as America burns down.

  • BoscoBolt

    Well, as we know, obama and the establishment GOP (Rubio, Ryan, McCain, Flake, Cantor, et al) fully agree on the issue, and are coordinating their efforts to ram AMNESTY through – so, no big surprise.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    The worst part about this is that if Republicans start attacking Obama over scaling back deportations, the lapdog media are going to use it to paint Republicans as Immigrant hating racists.

    Because let’s face it, the Democrats don’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to any of the issues that Americans are really concerned about (economy, jobs, national debt, Obamacare, etc), so they are looking for anything they can to sway public opinion in their favor. And painting Republicans as Immigrant hating racists is what they would use to do that.

    I agree, it’s BS that they are silent on the issue. They should be using this to get legal immigrants on their side, by pointing out to the legal immigrants that the Democrats want to spit in their face by catering to criminals.

    Why isn’t Mexico asking for their upstanding, taxpaying, patriotic citizens back? They seem content just letting us take their welfare recipients, or is that racist to say?

  • AmericanMom

    Boehner, McConnell and McCain are symptoms of a toxic disease (liberalism), one that may have catastrophic and toxic results for America’s financial future.

    Illegal alien is suing his rescuers in Colorado for $500,000. Yeah, I sued Mexico once ‘from the shadows’…not!

    I think this talk of amnesty is unfair to people who follow the law. This is suppose to be the group of equality. But the equal treatment under the law can’t apply to the lawless. How is rewarding people who break the law considered the right thing to do?
