Pelosi Yanks Boehner’s Fig Leaf

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Fig LeafIf you haven’t already figured out that the War and Peace-length Senate immigration bill (S.744) or its serialized version, now being worked on by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and other GOP leaders, will result in amnesty without enforcement, allow Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to explain it to you.

In an interview on Telemundo, Pelosi said, “Our view of the law is that it – if somebody is here without sufficient documentation, that is not reason for deportation.” Presumably, by “our view” she was speaking behalf of congressional Democrats and, quite possibly, the Democrat in the White House.

In other words, the House’s top ranking Democrat just yanked Boehner’s already flimsy fig leaf (an unsettling picture on so many levels) for taking up the components of the Senate bill, one piece at a time. If being here “without sufficient documentation” is not a legitimate reason for deportation now (even though that is precisely what is prescribed by law), why would it be a legitimate reason after Congress and the president go through the charade of enacting new enforcement language?

    So this proves with the immigration laws we have now and with Pelosi admitting it, they are aiding and abetting illegal immigrants. And if they don’t deport because of no documentation, they are derelict of their duties to protect us from foreign violence. How many attempts has their been that a terrorist has tried OR SUCCEEDED to blow things up here? Plus the fact that illegal immigrants commit a felony every day they are here when they use fake or stolen ID’s. If we used fake or stolen ID’s we would go to prison. All this is about is votes for the Democrats. They don’t care that these illegal immigrants are breaking our laws or will take any of our jobs and put many of us into poverty. Plus the fact that Pelosi didn’t mention that in the bill they have placed a stipulation that says that any company that hires an AMERICAN OVER AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT, THEY WILL FINE THEM $5000. I did not stutter. You can find the bill on line if you do a search.

    We have got to stop this. No if ands or buts. And TELL ARIZONA AND CALIFORNIA IF THEY DO NOT REPLACE PELOSI AND REID THIS NEXT ELECTION, WE WILL DISOWN THEM AS STATES. Those two are the poison of that party, we all know that as a fact.

      These people are not immigrants. They are invaders. We are at war with Mexico. We need the National Guard on the border with orders to fire.

    Why is she still a Senator??? That women is not right and that’s the most polite way that I can put it. I have no respect for either of thr 3 branches of Government anymore. Most of them have sold us down the river. The US has lost cedibility and respect and has made us and continues to make is the laughing stock of the world. Does Pelosi even care about her Country or the lives sacrificed so that she can live free?i am beyond disgusted. It blows my mind that she said that insufficient documentation is no reason for deportation. What is then? Why have border patrols or an immigration dept. or Customs? There just needs to be a sign that states that all are welcome. Please just come right in and make yourself at home. No ID ever required. You automatically have the rights of full citizenship.

    And the Public’s perception of you, Ms Pelosi, is that OUR perception of you, and other’s like you, who have NOT upheld their oath of Allegiance to the Constitution, do not deserve, nor have, the protections afforded BY the Constitution. Your support of UnConstitutional acts remove you from that body by choice and actions.
    The day WILL come when you, and others like you, WILL be held accountable for your unlawful acts.
    And that day can’t come too soon.

    Pelosi is ignoring the US Constitution as is the majority of Congress on both sides of the isle and do indeed favor illegals over veterans. We keep electing those to office who know little to nothing about national defense nor governing in general.

    I am astonished and outraged that Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor and the rest of his Republican House leadership team won’t criticize the repugnant and outrageous comments made by Democrat House Leader Nancy Pelosi that our immigration laws mean illegal immigrants should not be deported.

    Isn’t Pelosi the person who referred to illegal aliens as “American patriots” a couple of years ago?!

    A rather astonishing statement by Pelosi. Not that it’s astonishing that she thinks that, we knew that already, but that she’s willing to spell it out. This is one of our important leaders telling foreign nationals that you can ignore our law. And what pray tell does “sufficient documentation” mean? You have permission to stay here or you don’t. Period.

    And yes, it shows that all those promises of enforcement are phony as a three dollar bill. And it figures she would say it on Telemundo. When are the Republicans going to figure out that they will not be able to outpander the Democrats for Latino votes?

      Good post. I don’t understand what the Republicans are thinking either. If the illegal immigrants get the right to vote they are trained to vote Democrat so Republicans can kiss their seats goodbye for a long time. But as for Pelosi…..she has been showing her dementia getting worse for awhile now.
