RNC Chairman Declares Obama’s Amnesty “Un-American”

It’s about time we got some tough talk from Republican leadership as it pertains to Obama’s immigration strategy. In fact, it’s well past time. Speaking on a conference call with reporters and activists Monday, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus took aim at the president’s plan to give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.

It’s unconstitutional, illegal, and we don’t support it. It is wrong. It is un-American for a president to try and do such a thing. I want to make it clear: There is no part of me, there is not a molecule in my body that agrees with the president on executive amnesty.

Priebus followed the tough talk with a promise that Republicans would do everything possible to block executive amnesty if they win back the Senate on November 4th. Not only that, but he seemed rather confident that they could pull it off. He assured listeners that they would use every available measure, including lawsuits, defunding the government, and injunction to stop Obama.

The Dangers of Amnesty

There’s no question that amnesty would potentially be devastating for the country. Perhaps the worst aspect of the idea is that it would encourage others to try their luck at the border. After all, what could be more inspiring than the prospect of getting through, waiting a bit, and then becoming a legal citizen through questionable means? It certainly has a more appealing flavor to it than the prospect of being jailed and deported. We were assured this wouldn’t happen when we tried this the first time, in 1986. Today, there are millions more illegals, and we’re back at square one, rehashing the same old arguments.

That’s to say nothing of the monetary costs. A recent study by the Heritage Foundation found that amnesty would pave the way for today’s illegals to receive nearly $10 trillion in government benefits over the course of their lifetimes. This is hardly offset by the $3 trillion in taxes they would pay over that same period. At a time when we should be doing everything possible to eliminate this culture of dependency, amnesty is one of the worst moves we could make.

Can Republicans Do It?

Still, I don’t have a lot of confidence in the GOP’s chances of stopping it. Where was all this rhetoric six months ago? Priebus’s tough words feel like last-ditch election desperation from a party that has not done nearly enough to get control of illegal immigration. Boehner, McCarthy, Cantor; Republican leadership has been all too willing to include amnesty in their plans for immigration reform.

I hope Priebus is right. I hope Republicans take the Senate and do something with this opportunity. The people of this country are acutely aware that America is headed in the wrong direction, and a strong, conservative legislature could be enough to right the ship.

I guess we’ll see.

  1. CUT OBUMMERS FUNDING FOR AMNESTY,IF THAT DOES NOT WORK THEN, I M P E A C H M E N T, IS THE ALTERNATIVE TO HIS BULLSH.. . HOLD HIM TO THE CONSTITUTION.HE HAS DONE ENOUGH OF HIS LIES TO PUT HIM AWAY FOR MANY YEARS IN PRISON.

    • Impeach him for amnesty ? Seemed ok when Reagan did it in 86

      • Simpson-Mazzoli Act, signed into law by Ronald Reagan on November 6, 1986, is an Act of Congress which reformed United States immigration law. The Act[1]
        required employers to attest to their employees’ immigration status;
        made it illegal to hire or recruit illegal immigrants knowingly;
        legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants, and;
        legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously with the penalty of a fine, back taxes due, and admission of guilt; candidates were required to prove that they were not guilty of crimes, that they were in the country before January 1, 1982, and that they possessed minimal knowledge about U.S. history, government, and the English language.
        The proposed immigration amnesty would benefit the 12 to 20 million undocumented aliens (illegal immigrants) currently living in the United States. An amnesty for illegal aliens forgives their acts of illegal immigration and implicitly forgives other related illegal acts such as driving and working with false documents. The result of an amnesty is that large numbers of foreigners who illegally gained entry into the United States are rewarded with legal status (Green Card) for breaking immigration laws.

        The United States has granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants through different amnesty and laws. Before the first amnesty in 1986, amnesty was only given on a case by cases basis. Amnesty was never given to a large group of individuals. The first (and supposedly one-time only) amnesty in 1986 gave about 2.8 million illegal immigrations the opportunity to change their status through the Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA).

      • Idiot! I hope you are happy exposing your being a lame brain! Obama acts by executive order which is nothing more than toilet paper with a logo on it. Reagan made an error but this was passed Congressionally as per the Constitution. I dont like it then but I sure as hell do not like this moron who thinks he is king now!

        • So Reagan granted amnesty and is was a “mistake” Obama merely talked about it and he should be impeached? You folks are fucking stupid Talk about a double standard. Obama hasn’t granted immunity by executive order. Get the facts

          • YOu are saying that Obscumbo has never used EO’? Right now he is waiting for the election to attempt to pass his unfit EO Threatening immigration status. That too – if “talked about” is both a huge error and also impeachable Mr Facts because your hero enjoys illegally circumventing the Constitution – That does not make it legal or acceptable. Here are your facts Mr Fact Man — Obscumbos proposed immigration amnesty would benefit the 12 to 20 million and an estimated 34 million
            undocumented aliens (illegal immigrants) currently living in the United
            States. An amnesty for illegal aliens forgives their acts of illegal
            immigration and implicitly forgives other related illegal acts such as
            driving and working with false documents. The result of an amnesty is
            that large numbers of foreigners who illegally gained entry into the
            United States are rewarded with legal status (Green Card) for breaking
            immigration laws. You are stupid enough to support that? That is unlawful and Obama does plan to grant immunity if he is not stopped – But as I say you are stupid to blindly support that.

          • Hey SHIT FOR BRAINS I’ll type slowly so you can keep up. What I said was it was hypocritical to say Obama should be impeached for TALKING about amnesty, but it was ok for Reagan to GRANT AMNESTY Can you get your small mind around that concept? I did not say I was FOR executive Orders, nor did I say I was FOR amnesty Pull your head out of your ass and stop putting words in my mouth

          • you talk tough small man – perhaps we should settle differences through my kicking your sorry ass. There is far more than talking about circumventing Congress via EO’s – The man has upwards of 1000 Constitutional violations and counting and you want to talk tough at me.
            Seems you avoided my comment to instead sound off tough and on top of things anal cavity. Respond – better yet give me your address so I can visit you a whoop your butt in front of your parents or wife and kids you infant.

          • Another internet tough guy Amnesty dipshit take your meds and stay on topic

      • Jimmy King, seems you don’t know your history very well, doesn’t it? If this is how you check out who you vote for, and did so in the last two Presidential elections, it’s not any wonder our country is in the shape it’s in. If you believe everything you are told by your leader as gospel (sorry he’s a muslin so that can’t be true, can it) without checking what he has done in HIS past, you are a camp follower and should never be a leader of people. You get what you deserve. Problem being the rest of us have to life with the aftermath of your past bad voting decisions!

    • NO, NO, NO!!! ARREST HIM THROUGH THE SENATE BY VOTE FROM WE THE PEOPLE! You cannot impeach an ineligible, illegal fraud, which is what Obama is.

      • EVEN BETTER! But it won’t happen because of race! If a white man had done the things obama has done, he would have been shot!

  2. If the Republicans don’t take the Senate, it will only be due to fraud at the polls. I wouldn’t put it past the low-life Dems to do whatever they can to see that they hold on to the Senate. Demand a new write-in ballot election if they do.

    • If we don’t take back America-We will have build a Mayflower and sail away searching for a new land! GOD HELP US IF hillary follows the muslim! we are doomed!

      • Let’s stop wringing our hands and make sure Hillary doesn’t happen. Support the Benghazi investigation and let’s lock up the two communists with one sweep. Haven’t we all had enough of their crap?

      • I think I’d move to canada if hillbillary became president. At least they call terrorism by its name and not “workplace violence”!

        • this country is amazing! voting in a muslim twice now wanting a murderer in charge! the clintons were law breakers in the ozarks! nothing has changed! if Americans vote for hillary, there will be no decency left!

          • Unfortunately there are people who vote not based on what is good for this country but only on making history with a “first”. Look at how well our “first” black president has done. He’s a POS. If all they want is a “first” woman president, let it be Sarah Palin. She fights for what she believes in, doesn’t let anyone bully her, and shoots first and asks questions later. She will put God right back where He belongs.

          • IT REALLY WOULD BE GOOD TO HAVE SARAH IN WASHINGTON! SHE IS THE ALL AMERICAN WOMAN!

    • They already found fraud in Chicago and Colorado these sneaky democrats are pulling ballots that were thrown in the trash filling them out and you know the rest these people are very evil they would sell their mothers and kids for a vote.

    • That’s because they are low-life Communists and will do whatever to get what they want.

  3. what is unamerican is a muslim in leadership of a democracy! America and muslim don’t belong together and can’t be “friend!”

    • What an ignorant statement You must be an old woman from the south

      • back at you jimmy!

        • Pro 26:3 “A whip for the horse, A bridle for the donkey, And a rod for the fool’s back. 4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, Lest you also be like him.” Shalom!

      • You are obviously totally ignorant of islam. It is a fascist control system not a religion, totally incompatible with lovers of freedom. Want your daughters clit cut off? How about your wife? I guess that’s OK if you can’t get a woman off anyhow. You couldn’t qualify to sharpen Virginia’s pencils.

      • jimmy you must be from the commie demon crap party. hmmmm

      • You must be a liberal bigot.

      • Go finish your Kool-Aid . POS

      • No, Jimmy King, your statement sounds like you’re the old woman from the south. I have lived in Saudi, and if you think for two seconds that there is any common ground between America and Muslims, you need to have your head examined. How about you live like this for a while: No bowling alleys – no theaters or movies – no tennis courts – no basketball courts – No football teams – no baseball teams. No beaches. Swimming pools are like this: 1 pool for women and girls, 3 separate pools for (a) 1 pool for married men who are not allowed to bring their young sons to the pool with them (b) 1 pool for single men only (c) 1 pool for boys ages 8 through 18, and none of them are allowed in the other pools. Mothers can take their sons up to age 8 to the pool with them, but a 8 they must then attend the boys’ pool. Women are not allowed to drive, nor can they hop into a car with your buddy to go up to the store for more chips. You must always accompany her wherever she goes, unless she goes with another woman ANYWHERE! If she goes somewhere ‘alone’, she is asking to be raped; and that is true for all women and girls. They must be 2 or more together! No alcohol is allowed of any kind in the country. That is only a tiny fraction of what Muslim law contains. However, you can smoke all the hashish you want to! So your statement is the ignorant statement!

        • it is evident from this side the sea that muslims love violence for the sake of being violent!

          • Gen 16:12 “He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” Shalom!

        • Annette, I would like to live under that system, which is why I am not a Muslim. I was responding to someone who said Obama should be impeached for granting amnesty. I merely pointed out that it was hypocritical for it to be ok when Reagan did it, but an impeachable offense for Obama. From that, you got that i’d like to live in a Muslim state?

      • i am!

      • have lived a long time and recognize evil! do not want my family subject top muslim lar=w!

    • You are quite right. I have lived in Saudi, and there isn’t the first law there that deals with common sense or justice! I can site example after example from my time spent there; too long to name them all here. American and Muslim is like mixing oil with water. It simply does not work.

  4. “There is no part of me, there is not a molecule in my body that agrees with the president on executive amnesty. ”

    And what do they do about this or any of Obama’s impositions?
    I know everyone looks forward to a republican takeover but the republicans have played about as big of part in the ruination of America as the democrats. Some because of things they did,NAFTA etc. and some for what they didn’t do or allowed to happen.
    I have lost faith in the republicans. They openly condemn conservatives and want to rid the party of me and people like me.
    I look at what they do and know I’ll be better off with out them.
    Lesser of two evils is still evil.

  5. Talk is cheap, and action not forthcoming. This cretin should long ago have been forced to resign his office and then subjected to trial by jury and investigation into alleged transgressions so great in number and severity it boggles the mind to realize that NOTHING has been done to bring him down under Constitutional Law which he violates on a daily basis ; including his sworn oath to defend and uphold the Constitution, not disdain, denigrate and ignore it!

  6. The proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back” – one of his efforts is going to be that straw!

  7. BS, Who in America remembers “GOD” seems as if we were doing fine with Him, not so good without Him. Let’s bring Him Back………..

    • And the Easter Bunny, and Santa Claus and the Flying Spaghetti Monster while we’re at it Yeah Joe, the problem with this country is not enough people believe in make believe

  8. this is playing into the republicans hands and yes I’m a republican. the republicans who have done nothing, nada, zip, zero to stop illegal immigration at our borders. the republicans who under Geo. W. gave amnesty to a million or so illegals against the majority of American’s will. the republicans who are bought and paid for by fascist corporate America and supplying third world workers for their slave labor dreams. I let neither off the hook. both party’s are as guilty as hell over the flood of illegal’s. It’s our government standing firm against the majority of American’s. We, the people, will have to act on this problem ourselves if we are to save our country. Of course both party’s will have to go.

  9. We need to see the US Chamber of Commerce first hand.Who are they,What are their names,they will do anything along with the Bush’s to get amnesty.We need to see them and their names.They hate us.

    • And every State, and most sizable City’s have a Chamber of Commerce lobby, that works to make sure their local politicians vote in favor of more Unlawful Alien Invaders. To keep their industrial complex which supports them happy. Shalom!

  10. “It’s about time we got some tough talk from Republican leadership.”

    No it’s about time we got something more than just talk from the Republican leadership! Our laws are way over due for being enforced, arrest made, and lawbreakers jailed and tried for their crimes. And if we are going claim to have equal justice for all, then Obama’s arrest needs to be at the top of the list. Shalom!

    • wonder where American justice went? America used to hang traitors! now we give one ou r WH and pay him to destroy our country!

  11. Him and his whole administration are un-American

  12. You can always tell when it’s election time.

  13. RELAX PEOPLE,YOU MADE A BIG MISTAKE TWICE,CALL IT I WAS CONNED BY A MUSLIM BORN SOMETHING
    OR SOMEONE,I AM 83 NEVER HAVE I WITNESSED THIS COUNTRY SURRENDERING IT’S FREEDOM TO A MAN OF SO DUBVIOUS,A NON RECORD CONCEALED TO PROTECT THE GUILTY.PLEASE VOTE YOUR COUNTRY IS IN PERIL

  14. then arrest the traitor and hang his ass

  15. If this bastard traitor Obama is somehow allowed to let what I estimate is actually truly closer to 30 million illegals rather than the 12 million figure publicly quoted by the antichrist media become US citizens by the stroke of a pen, hopefully everyone here realizes that then every single one of those falsely created citizens who are 21yrs of age and over can then turn around and immediately sponsor another illegal to become a citizen!!! So basically that means the unlawful and insane immediate creation of approx. 50 million falsely created Demoncrat voters!!! So that means for all practical purposes the immediate destruction of the United States of America!!! At the present, there is no greater risk to the survival of the USA!!!

  16. We don wan no Steenkeeng Amnesty no more not ever eh Hombres Y Senoras
    Wee don need no steenking Amensty Not now Not ever Si!
    An Wee Chure as Hell don need no more steenking Clintons in de Casa Blanco

  17. Perhaps one should ask why the Senate Majority leader is sitting on over 350 bills passed in the House rather than asking why the Republicans haven’t done more. Many of these bills are bipartisan and have been worked out in favor of the people and not the govt. Of that you can be guaranteed, or Reid would not be hording them in his little stockpile from being sent up to 0vomit for either veto or passage into law.
    Is the amnesty un-American? It is definitely uncivilized regardless of what country it occurs in, and definitely against our laws as they currently stand. Further, any country that does not secure its borders is no longer a country, and that is the position 0vomit has placed us in. As it stands now, we are defacto country with a defacto government. Nothing is getting done because Reid is acting in tandem with 0vomit to make sure that 0vomit can rule via his phone and his pen.
    So what can we call ourselves then? We aren’t Communist. We aren’t Socialists. We aren’t a Republic any longer. We certainly have fallen out of the category of being a Democracy with the way things are being run in D.C. Are we under a dictatorship? If nothing else, it certainly appears we are very close to being exactly that, and with the influx via 0vomit securing a $20,000,000 grant in 2009, and using that grant to bring 80,000 members of Hamas along with their families here to live: and the newest threat of ISIS and our borders being open to any an all comers seems to appear that we are being set up. But for what?
    To add insult to injury, reports are coming in that our voting machines are changing Republican votes to Democratic votes. Lots of questions with the answers as plain as the nose on our faces and no one willing to make a move! Well – Enjoy your freedom while it lasts, or prepare to have to fight for it – AGAIN!!! Because freedom is never free.

  18. Deport Obama

  19. Amnesty? wha ees dees Amnesty? Wee don Need no Steenkeeng Amnesty! eh Hombres & Senoras.
    Dat Amnesty ee ees no good for nobody who ees tru Americano!

  20. I live in Virginia and the RNC is nonexistent in the Senate race to unseat Mark Warner. The same thing happened in the governor’s race last year. It’s like the establishment listens to what the national media says about Republicans not being able to win statewide in Virginia. Cuccinelli lost by less than 3 points without them and Gillespie has pulled from about 25 down to within 5 without them. It’s too bad there are not some smart people at the RNC.

  21. Un American???? no shit sherlock and what is ANY of you doing ANYTHING to stop this??? I have had enough with the finger pointing and blaming, get off your asses and do something about this!!! RIDICULOUS!

  22. I want to know exactly what plan the Republicans have to vacate, repeal, and deny Obama any amnesty for illegal aliens. We must stop this socialist dictator from making laws. Sorry Obama, You have NO power in the Constitution to declare executive Amnesty to millions of illegal Aliens. We must stop the president from even attempting this. If he does, immediate impeachment and ejection from office. Forget going to the supreme court. Eject the president while the ink is still wet on the paper.

  23. Most other countries around the world recognized long ago that they can not support illegal immigration, and neither can the United States of America! Again, there is voter fraud being assisted by Democrats, and there have been many instances where illegal aliens have voted! Then there are instances where votes have been changed from Republican to Democrat, ballot boxes have been stuffed, by Democrats, all while they intentionally left the ballot boxes unattended… Hopefully, after this election, the Republicans will finally do what’s right, and take back our country, reversing all the criminal acts that Obama has committed…

  24. I support our Constitution and the law of the land. This is American. Anyone who thinks otherwise is un-American. When the shoe fits, wear it. Incidentally, I would like to see the electoral college abolished. Hopefully, voters can see the err of voting for hillary. I do not doubt fraud at the polls. osama did it last election.

  25. Hillary would be a black Obama.
