    Republican: 'No problem' for path to legal status

    Republican: 'No problem' for path to legal status

    By Rebecca Shabad uly 02, 2014, 01:28 pm


    Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) said Wednesday there would be “no problem” in getting the House to pass legislation that would provide a pathway to legal status for immigrants in the U.S. illegally, adding that a pathway to citizenship is "potentially doable."

    “I think there's no problem getting through the House a pathway to legal status. A pathway to citizenship is going to be tougher, but I think it is potentially doable, if we can show the American people that the border is secure,” Farenthold said on MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown.” “My constituents feel betrayed by the promise that Reagan made, that if we grant amnesty, we'll then secure the border. We obviously didn't do that.”

    Parents who brought their children to the United States illegally are a “very sympathetic problem” Farenthold added. “We've educated them in our schools, and they become a burden on society if they can't get a job.”

    The Republican said the border is “relatively secure” but “not secure enough,” given the roughly 52,000 unaccompanied children from Central America who have crossed into the U.S. since October.

    Asked if the current crisis hurts immigration reform prospects, Farenthold said, “I think, politically, it may,” but he stressed it could be addressed without a comprehensive bill.

    “I don't think you'd have any problem getting legislation through the House to have expedited deportation procedures, getting more judges down to prosecute or hear these cases,” said Farenthold, who said it could take years before the children get a hearing otherwise.

    Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told the GOP caucus last week that the House would not hold a vote on immigration reform this year. President Obama announced on Monday that he is taking executive action to fix the system as much as he can himself.

    Farenthold suggested he supports the Obama administration’s request for $2 billion in funds to fix the situation at the border, but he said, “We've got to speed up the process.”

    On Tuesday, protestors blocked three buses carrying immigrant families to a border patrol processing station in California. Farenthold called protests in response to the crisis “uninformed.”

    “This is a humanitarian crisis,” he said. “The whole country needs to step up and help out.”

    GGRRRrrrrrr.what has this Farenthold been chewing or drinking? Border is relatively secure? I disagree! He is not accepting OUR border patrols reports as truth. I have faith in no other reports!

    According to Farenthold the Speaker is lying to someone, to the President or Farenthiold. Of course either or both of the other two might be lying also! Thle big question still exists, who in American politics can be trusted. I'm tired of holding the bag after trustinany of them the past 30 years.

    Farenthold lives with his wife Debbie and two daughters Morgan and Amanda in Corpus Christi. He is the step-grandson of Sissy Farenthold, a long-time Democratic icon in Texas, who was married to his grandfather, George Farenthold, from 1950 until 1985.[citation needed]
    His step-grandmother was a long-time Democratic icon? Well, fruit doesn't fall far from the tree.

    Hey, Texas, next time study the history of the people you're electing on a Republican ballot. It can save US all a lot of misery.

    The border is not secure! In my area they are being educated in school with Spanish as the first language! How about English as a first language, so my children can go to the area school and not feel like they are in a foreign country because the classes are being taught in Spanish!
