RNC’s Priebus: ‘General consensus’ that
something big has to happen on immigration

Washington Times, by David Sherfinski

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/30/2014 12:14:26 PM

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said Wednesday that there’s a “general consensus” in his party that something big needs to happen on overhauling the country’s immigration laws and that more specifics would be unveiled this week at House Republicans’ annual retreat. “I think politically speaking it’s a mixed bag, but the question is whether or not it’s something we have to do as a country, and I think that’s what’s trumping the political answer,” Mr. Priebus said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “You see in our party, whether it’s [Kentucky Senator] Rand Paul, who’s called for massive immigration reform, or [Florida

Something big like enforcing our immigration laws, sealing the border, reversing birthright citizenship, halting availability of free social services in every language under the sun for people who never paid one dime into the system? It is to laugh.

"General consensus" is redundant. Consensus is the word.
Of course, there is no consensus and, thus, the GOP should let the Democrats fall on their sword over this issue. Few people cite immigration reform as a pressing issue when polled. It is not a vote getter for us.
The GOP should take a positive position calling for reduced bureaucracy for qualified applicants and consistent enforcement of existing law to give the American people confidence that changes can be made without inviting disaster.
Immigration is an issue world wide. It isn´t going away, but as a political concern it can wait.
One more thing: let´s stop saying "enforce the border." "The" border means the border with Mexico to most folks and plays into the Democrats´ meme that we "hate Hispanics." We should say instead that we support legal immigration with improvements at our ports and borders. Same thing. Sounds better.

He is probably going to hand the liberal Democrats tens of millions of new foreign born voters by way of amnesty and and vastly increased immigration on into the future. Then he will be portrayed by the liberal media as wondering why the Republicans can no longer win presidential elections.

proof positive of the harm that comes from living in an echo chamber of like-minded bobbleheads. Truth is, he and those like him hear not a word of what we are saying, deliberately. They´re above all that, you know. So he´s probably being truthful, if horribly wrong. Yet another bit of evidence against having a professional political caste, "America´s Ruling Class" again.
.
A word about complaints over the use of the term "border enforcement". It may make some uncomfortable, but the plain and very obvious fact is that the huge majority of illegal aliens are Mexican nationals that come over the southern border. Very few Welsh or Japanese are swimming ashore. Why does it make some people uncomfortable to acknowledge what many of us see on the street or in our own neighborhoods? The "reconquista" movement is an Act of War perpetrated by the Mexican government and it´s sill y to ignore that fact. You win a war by prosecuting that war, not by pretending the invasion - for that is what it is - is not happening.

General consensus? Puhleeze. If you or any of your cronies who "speak" for the Republican Party were honest, you would be announcing the general consensus was that we want the border secured FIRST. You would know that you can´t out-entitle the entitlement party and attempting to do so only alienates the majority of your party. Furthermore, it is the ultimate slap in the face to those who are legitimately applying for citizenship. How is this fair to anyone, citizen or potential immigrant? Your general consensus carries no weight with me.

Why? How many of the coveted Hispanic voters vote in midterm elections? The Republicans don´t need to do anything right now except point out Obama´s failures--on Obamacare in particular. And I have an idea how they should do it, too. Here in Illinois, we have a self-made millionaire running for the Republican nomination for governor. He has no political experience and no one had heard of him before he started running TV ads--paid for with his own money-- slamming our current, inept governor Pat Quinn. I think he is going to get the nomination. Why isn´t the RNC doing the same for Obama. It´s like they are afraid to criticize him.

Poor GOP. The only people left in their corner are big business. I´m guessing their funding has dried up from everyday Americans.

They also had a epiphany. Obama won the election without the white working class. Romney had them and the Independents (many Tea Party) and still lost.

I think they see the typical Republican base becoming less of a factor. Therefore flood the country with with hardworking Christians from south of the border and wedge them away from Democrats with family values.

Sorry, most people coming from south of the border these days are Peons and are used to the Socialist monolith. They know very well what an Ejido is and they approve of them. The government is the source of wealth. Good luck getting them of Democrat largesse.

Stopping aliens from sneaking across the borderline is not going to stop mass uncontrolled illegal immigration because the majority of intending illegal aliens today, especially women with children, gain entry to the USA by presenting an easily obtained temporary visa, a border crossing card or with a visa waiver, walk right into the country through an official port of entry, then overstay their allotted time period and simply just stay here. Once they get to some interior US city they are home free and are protected by liberal Democrat non-enforcement policies from ever being deported.

The only way to stop most mass illegal immigration is to keep illegal aliens out of most US jobs worth them having, through a greatly enhanced e-verify electronic employee verification system that uses a modernized social security card bearing a digital photograph of the bearer containing a electronic chip, that can be verified through instant electronic verification procedures to the effect that the bearer is authorized to hold a job in this country. Without the possibility of getting a US job most future intending illegal aliens will no longer come here.

All that is just common sense.

#27, the problem is many of those jobs being taken by illegals aren´t being taken, or wanted, by Americans.
Whether it´s laziness, not qualified, or simply "that works too hard".

If business needs more workers then we simply need to increase the legal quota on immigration.
It´s not amnesty either.

Any process being discussed should ensure all have to go to back of the line, even the President supports that notion.
They´d all be processed and screened just like anyone else.

and I believe illegally entering the U.S. is only a misdomeanor not a felony.

But, GOP should not just be looking for Hispanic immigrants, but expanding the scope to include increase to attract Russians, Indians, Chinese, Italians, Brazilians, etc...

We need about 30-35 million new legal immigrants looking to build America even more bringing with them wealth, talent and ambition.

Talk about energizing America.

It sounds like the next big thing to happen from Prince Riebus and the establishment Republicans headed by Boner is they are going to serve their voter base a huge crap sandwich- Amnesty for illegals. The traitor Boner is getting ready to pass this Frankenstein legislation. We are barely coming out of the worst recession since 1929 and these idiots want to flood our country with 30 million legalized citizens who compete with Americans for low paying jobs, use up our services like schools, healthcare and avoid paying taxes. We taxpayers are subsidizing these low wage earners while they take away American jobs. A pox on the traitor Boner and the Establishment Republicans.

JAY CARNEY: I remember we had some discussion during 2012 about well, is it appropriate for the president, the sitting president and candidate, to give interviews with Jon Stewart and others. And the answer was yes, again because the young voters we were trying to reach are more likely to watch The Daily Show than some other news shows. But also, I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the sitting president of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart. Probably the most substantive, challenging interview Barack Obama

The tentative agreement puts on hold -- for now at least -- additional economic sanctions the West had prepared to impose on Russia if the talks were fruitless. And that will ease international pressure both on Moscow and nervous European Union nations that depend on Russia for their energy.

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I’ve been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don’t know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population. Other surveys are available, but the samples are smaller, so they’re not as good; the census is the gold standard. Unfortunately,

President Obama´s budget would not place the federal debt on a downward path over the next 10 years, according to projections released by the Congressional Budget Office on Thursday. The CBO, Congress’ nonpartisan budget scorekeeper, projected that if the president’s proposals were to go into effect, federal debt held by the public would rise from $12.8 trillion at the end of fiscal 2014 to $19.9 trillion in 2024, leaving the level of debt as a share of total economic output constant, at roughly 74 percent. That would be lower than the baseline projection of 78 percent if nothing is done,

Media Matters for America is apparently resisting an effort by Service Employees International Union Local 500 to unionize its staff. Last week, the union filed a representation petition with the National Labor Relations Board, indicating that the nonprofit media watchdog organization rejected an effort by the union to organize MMFA´s staff through a Card Check election. A filing with the NLRB does not necessarily mean that the union and management are in direct confrontation. For example, although Volkswagen tacitly backed the United Auto Workers´ recent effort to organize its Chattanooga, Tenn., plant, the company still insisted on an NLRB-monitored election. But the

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
