Boehner to Reveal Immigration ‘Principles,’ Conservatives Ready to Rumble
Sometimes it is amazing that Boehner is still Speaker. We need to elect more conservatives and get a conservative Speaker.
Check it out:
This could get ugly.
Thursday at 4:30pm in Cambridge, Maryland, Speaker John Boehner will unveil an outline of the party’s immigration stance to rank-and-file members that includes “legal status” for millions of illegal immigrants.
Boehner hand-selected members to help lead the discussion, including California Rep. Jeff Denham, the first Republican to endorse the House Democrats’ immigration bill.
But as much as Boehner is dreaming of a big, bipartisan immigration deal – senior GOP officials say they are surprised just how much the Ohio Republican is “leaning in” on the issue – top immigration hawks are themselves ready to raise hell.
“We’re going to have a very heavy discussion on illegal immigration,” Rep. Dana Rohrabacher told Breitbart News, adding that Boehner’s critics have organized a plan to “speak as aggressively and loudly and articulately as we can in opposing this nonsense of amnesty for 10-20 million illegals which would cause great harm to the country and destroy the Republican Party.”
The meeting is momentous enough that Senator Jeff Sessions flouted congressional protocol, hand-delivering anti-amnesty talking points to members ahead of the closed-door session.
