Is Speaker Boehner Throwing-In With Conservatives For A Change?

Echoing conservative arguments in favor of the House-passed appropriation that prohibits money being spent on Obama’s unconstitutional “executive amnesty” Boehner said he is “certainly” willing to let federal funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) expire this month if a congressional standoff that is threatening the agency’s appropriation continues.

The Intellectual Power of the Arguments Against Rubio’s Amnesty Bill

The opponents of amnesty are actually reading Rubio’s bill, making the rational arguments against the S. 744 approach and taking those arguments to the public. We urge you to let your Congressman know NOW that you oppose anything remotely resembling the Senate immigration bill. Between now and July 10, call your Congressman’s office (Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) and tell them to OPPOSE bringing S. 744, the Obama – Rubio immigration amnesty bill, to the House floor. Tell them you want border security, not amnesty for illegal aliens.
