    John Boehner On Pathway To Citizenship: 'Slow Down. Slow Down. How About A Little For

    John Boehner On Pathway To Citizenship: 'Slow Down. Slow Down. How About A Little Foreplay?'

    The Huffington Post | By Luke Johnson Posted: 02/12/2013 2:38 pm EST | Updated: 02/12/2013 2:58 pm EST

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) used a colorful metaphor Tuesday in response to a question from a reporter on whether House Republicans could support a pathway to citizenship in an immigration reform bill.

    "Slow down. Slow down. How about a little foreplay?" he said at a breakfast with television reporters, according to ABC News. "There’s a bipartisan conversation going on in the Senate. There’s a bipartisan conversation going in the House. Let these things work their way along. It is too early to talk about legislation going on in one house or the other."

    He went on, "The only thing I worry about on immigration is the president getting in the way."

    Boehner has declined to support a pathway to citizenship even for undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, a group seen by many as the most-deserving for citizenship among the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants.

    "There are a lot of members with a lot of good ideas, and there's a lot of bipartisan work going on here in the House, and bipartisan work going on in the Senate," he told reporters on Feb. 6. "I want to do everything I can to foster this continuing conversation in a bipartisan fashion to deal with what is a very difficult issue in our country. But it's certainly worthy of consideration."

    Boehner and his number two, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), voted in 2010 against the Dream Act, legislation that would have created a pathway to citizenship for immigrants illegally brought here as children. Cantor, however, has said that such a class of immigrants would be a "good place to start" on immigration reform.

    We have immigration laws that just need to be enforced.

    Do you think that Huffopo is shilling for illegal aliens?

    That is a blatant lie on Boehner's behalf. Boehner supports citizenship for illegals.

    Slow down my A@@

    How about grinding to a screeching halt

    39+ Million Americans are unemployed and 47 Million are on food stamps and you CRIMINALS should be locked the hell up for even considering Amnesty
    Amnesty for 11 million will increase debt by $6.3 trillion And that doesn't count costs of 22 million additional legal immigrants in just 10 years!

    The Republicans are colluding with the Dems, they are all a bunch of traitors IMO.

    IMO the really bizarre aspect of any Republican capitulation on amnesty is that the Repubs who vote for it will be signing an extinction order for the GOP. Illegals benefit from government services - as do lower income Americans - and exit polls show that Latinos tend to view the Republican party as not caring about ordinary people.

    I really wish that someone in the media would ask Repubs why they think that voting for amnesty would help build the Republican party - or even sustain the GOP.
