Immigration reform news 2015: Despite Boehner accusations, Obama executive action killed by GOP
This was beyond imagination for common people even going by Republicans’s own standarf.Â Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) forced almost everyone into uncontrolled laughter when he told a TV station that it was Obama who destroyed the chances of immigration reform in the United States.
How the person who slowly and very consciously chopped immigration Â reform and then completely killed it in the year 2013 can have the courage to manage falsehood of this magnitude.
He seems to be trying to woo Latinos and othets into voting for his party in the US elections 2016. But who can he fool this way?
His antipathy towards Obama and immigration reform is known. Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), who has been taken in the GOP circles as someone who has frustrated Obama and his immigration reform has squarely laid the blame on Obama. Boehner says that the responsibility for failing to implement immigration reform lies at Obamaâ€™s doorstep.
He said Obama poisoned immigration reform. This is nothing but simply shocking. Despite Democrat dominated Senate passing the bill, Boehner and his cohorts ensured that the bill was never brought to the House for discussion. The House Speaker said that Obama by coming out with his last resort, namely executive action on immigration, has “poisoned the well”. There is no denying the fact that his words are hollow and anyone can find the lack of sincerity and commitment in his words. Coming from a top Republican leader it was simply unbelievable. So Republicans have fallen to this level!
He is consummate manipulator. While participating in CBSâ€™s Face the Nation program, Boehner said, â€œHe’s stirred up the American people in such a way that it would almost be impossible to do immigration reform, given the environment that we’re dealing withâ€¦I want to do immigration reform and the president knows it. I asked the president about a year ago, gave him some ideas about things that should happen if he wanted to do immigration reform, and some things that he shouldn’t doâ€¦Well, the president didn’t take my advice. And he doubled down on the executive orders that, frankly, far exceeded his authority, and the courts have got him stoppedâ€.
