GOP Whip McCarthy Says Immigration Bills Likely to be “Step-by-Step”

Immigrants Face Deportation After Sham Marriages Discovered

“Romanians who arrived in Idaho a decade ago face deportation after federal prosecutors say they entered sham marriages to stay illegally in America. Some were students, lured by work at the famed Sun Valley Resort. Some were friends, siblings or cousins from mountainous Transylvania. Since then, they’ve established lives in the U.S., buying homes, having kids and starting businesses. They formed the nucleus of a tight-knit Romanian community in south-central Idaho,” the Idaho Press reports.

Obama Uses S.F. Fundraiser to Push Amnesty

“President Obama continues his West Coast trip Monday, traveling to San Francisco to raise campaign money and talk about immigration.

The Democratic-run U.S. Senate passed an immigration bill earlier this year, but it has languished in the Republican-led House,” USA Today writes.

    Speaker John Boehner said on 11/23/13 that immigration reform is absolutely not dead. This is very disturbing. I’m terribly afraid about what Boehner considers reform. Does he mean by immigration reform finally ending massive destructive and costly illegal immigration once and for all?…OR…Does he believe immigration reform means giving amnesty, legal status and U.S. citizenship to illegal immigrants? This is a fair and important question when you understand that Boehner and his right hand man, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, are pushing a dangerous and deceptive version of THE DREAM ACT amnesty that they call THE KIDS ACT.

    Unless that “step by step” approach guarantees e-verify in place for every job and a physical fence on the border, anything else is a no go. When are the Republicans going to catch on to the fact that the American public supports them on those issues by big margins.
