Becky Tallent Not Doing Much After Speaker Boehner Hires Her As Top Immigrant Aide

POSTED ON
February 10

On November 13, 2013, Boehner stated he has no intention of ever going to conference on the Senate bill that garnered bipartisan support.  But on December 3, 2013, Speaker Boehner decided to throw a bone to the media hound dogs when his office hired Becky Tallent as his top immigration aide.  

So what has Becky Tallent been doing?

Nothing except for crying about President Obama.  However, we have had to inform Becky Tallent that President Obama is not a King of a monarchy -- he is the President of the United States and last we checked our Nation prides itself on democracy.  But Tallent is now part of the GOP machine and immigration leaders and activists have not seen one single bill introduced by Speaker Boehner's office since last year. 

We are sick and tired of Becky Tallent insulting the intelligence of Hispanic Voters.  Immigration Reform is being blocked by the Tea Party GOP because that is what they do best.  The Tea GOP consists of a bunch of obstructionists and the growing Independent Voter block are getting disgusted with it.   According to According to IVN:  "The current Congress has an average 9.2 percent approval rating and 84.2 percent disapproval rating. ... These numbers point to a grave problem: the House of Representatives is utterly unrepresentative. 

We have the votes now that will fix the broken immigration system that would only enhance our national and economic security.  According to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, we have the legal comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) votes with 190 cosponsors on H.R.15 and 28 Republicans vowing support.

In fact, the Democratic-led Senate introduced and passed a bill over 7 months ago and the GOP-led House has done nothing. 

Looks like the Ohio GOP needs to look at a recent November 2013 memo provided by the Basswood Research regarding NATIONAL GENERAL ELECTION POLL ON IMMIGRATION ISSUES  IN REPUBLICAN-HELD COMPETITIVE CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS.
According to the research findings, inaction by GOP in swing districts will more than likely cost them their seats.   Since its founding in 2001,Basswood Research has conducted survey research in every state and in hundreds of congressional districts and local communities. Its founder and principal, Jon Lerner, has been recognized by Roll Call, National Journal, the Washington Post and others as one of the leading Republican pollsters in the nation. Basswood has helped elect more than two dozen U.S. Senators, Members of Congress, and Governors, including leading conservatives such as Senators Tom Coburn, Pat Toomey, and Tim Scott. It has served as pollster for leading conservative advocacy groups such as the Club for Growth. And it has conducted surveys for the national Republican Party committees at the RGA, the NRSC, and the NRCC.
Here is what the memo states:
Methodology
On November 2-3, 2013, Basswood Research conducted a survey of likely general election voters in 20 congressional districts. These districts are widely viewed as the 20 most competitive ones currently held by Republican incumbents. The districts surveyed were: CA-10, CA-21, CO-6, FL-2, FL-10, IA-3, IL-13, IN-2, MI-1, MI-7, MI-11, MN-2, NE-2, NV-3, NY-11, NY-19, NY-23, OH-6, OH-14, PA-8. The survey was conducted by live professional interviewers by telephone. The overall sample size was 1000, with a margin of error of +/- 3.1%, at a 95% confidence interval. Each district contributed 50 interviews to the sample; as such, data in individual districts is much less reliable.
Key Findings
• Voters in key Republican districts are highly dissatisfied with political leadership in Washington across-the-board.
President Obama’s job approval rating is poor, with 41% approving and 58% disapproving. “Democrats in Congress” fare even worse, with 34% approving, and 63% disapproving. But it is “Republicans in Congress” who are in the worst shape in these Republican districts, with 27% approving and 70% disapproving of their job performance.
• Voters in key Republican districts want action on immigration reform.
Fixing the current immigration system is rated as “very important” by 70% of voters in these districts. An additional 23% rate action on immigration reform as “somewhat important.” Only 5% rate immigration reform as either “not very important” or “not at all important.”
• Voters prefer an imperfect immigration solution to no solution.
When given a choice between leaving the current immigration system the way it is, and “passing new laws that are not perfect, but do attempt to fix the serious flaws in the current system,” voters choose imperfect solutions over the status quo by a massive 77%-15% margin. That includes 67% of voters who consider themselves “very conservative,” and 72% of registered or affiliated Republicans.
The major elements of the comprehensive immigration reform proposals being considered in Congress have widespread support in these key Republican districts.
E-Verify: 80% support; 13% oppose
Dream Act: 78% support; 16% oppose
Earned pathway to citizenship for undocumented: 71% support; 21% oppose
Increasing fines for employers who hire 72% support; 23% oppose
Undocumented immigrants:
Increasing border patrol and border fencing: 67% support; 24% oppose
Increasing high tech legal immigration: 62% support; 30% oppose
• The combination of enhanced border security and pathway to citizenship represents a consensus position.
When presented with three options regarding the interconnection between border security to prevent future illegal immigration and citizenship for those who are presently in the country and undocumented, the following responses were found:
17% oppose a pathway to citizenship under all circumstances;
26% favor a pathway to citizenship even without any increase in border security;
50% favor a pathway to citizenship if it also includes substantially increased border security.
76% favor a pathway to citizenship, with or without enhanced border security.
• The partisan composition of these 20 districts favors Republicans.
By party registration/affiliation, respondents in this survey were 39% Republican, 35% Democratic, and 23% Independent. The generic party preference for Congress was +6.7 points Republican.
What does this mean for Mexican American Hispanic Voters and the Latino Community?
It could mean Republicans in the House of Representatives will lose their power and majority seats in 2014 possibly getting a sweeter deal with a combined Democratic-controlled House and Senate.   We are getting hungry to vote out the tea party GOP-controlled House so that we can work on a sweeter deal once they are gone.  Our growing indepnendent voter group does not not support any "taxation without representation" ideas that are suggested in the Republican Immigration Preamble. Taxation without representation is a dangerous slippery slope and is un-American. 
According to the Tax Lawyer, a paper published by Section of Taxation, American bar Association with the assistance of Georgetown University Law Center:
 
"...each year undocumented immigrants add billions of dollars in sales, excise, property, income, and payroll taxes—including Social Security, Medicare, and unemployment taxes—to federal, state, and local coffers. 15 Hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants file annual federal and state income tax returns..."

Independent voters to Republicans: Halt Immigration Reform and We Will Halt Your Power in 2014

POSTED ON
February 05

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 5, 2014
 
info@nationaltequilapartymovement.com
 

Independent Voters to Republican Party: Halt Immigration Reform and We Will Halt Your Power in 2014 Elections 

 
 
Phoenix, AZ -- Republicans are warning President Obama that if he halts immigrant deportations then the GOP will halt immigration reform.  But the Republican Party has already halted immigration reform as Mexican-Americans / Latinos, Women and Independent voters have noted it has been over 7 months since the Democratic-controlled Senate passed a historic comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) bill in 2013 while the Republican-led House of Representatives have not submitted a bill that will fix the clearly broken immigration system. 
 
Since Republicans are making political threats, SOMOS INDEPENDENTS -- a Mexican-American / Latina and Independent women-led voter group are making it clear to the Republican Party the following:
 
1) Women represent 50.8% of the U.S. voter and matriarchs within the Mexican-American / Latino voters are tired of hearing stories where mothers are pulled away from their U.S. born children who are left behind while parents get deported. Women know the Republican-led House of Representatives are already halting progress and we will continue to inform our base and women voters to this regard.  We believe the Tea Party Republicans need to be voted out come November 2014 elections so that we can work on a better deal after they are ousted. 
 
2)  According to the Tax Lawyer, a paper published by Section of Taxation, American bar Association with the assistance of Georgetown University Law Center:
 
"...each year undocumented immigrants add billions of dollars in sales, excise, property, income, and payroll taxes—including Social Security, Medicare, and unemployment taxes—to federal, state, and local coffers. 15 Hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants file annual federal and state income tax returns..."
 
Yet, some of those taxes paid by undocumented immigrants help the U.S. pay $30 billion is being given to foreign aid while our Republican-led House of Representatives drag their feet on Homeland Security issues with regard to fixing the broken immigration system.  Fixing the broken immigration system here in our Homeland strengthens our National security and our relationships with our neighboring countries.  Too much emphasis abroad rather than Homeland will drive the 2014 elections. 
 
3)  Our growing indepnendent voter group does not not support any "taxation without representation" ideas that are suggested in the Republican Immigration Preamble. Taxation without representation is a dangerous slippery slope and is un-American. 
 
4)  According to IVN:  "The current Congress has an average 9.2 percent approval rating and 84.2 percent disapproval rating. ... These numbers point to a grave problem: the House of Representatives is utterly unrepresentative. 
 
5)  We disapprove of the Republican Party using Rep. Luis Gutierrez as the go-to person on matters relating to immigration when in fact it was Rep. Gutierrez who told media Latinos would not vote during the 2012 elections.  Gutierrez was proven wrong when Latino voters did vote in 2012 in rising numbers.  As a get-out-the-vote effort we encourage Mexican-American / Latino / Chicano to become registered to vote and we do not appreciate it when Gutierrez (who is Puerto Rican) does not consult with Mexican-American Get Out The Vote leaders.   Indeed those of Mexican descent account for almost 70% of the entire Latino population pie.    National Radio Show Host via Carlos Galindo also believes Rep. Luis Gutierrez does not represent us
 
Women, Mexican-AmericansWe are committed to voting out the Tea Party Republicans.  As a get out the vote organization (where we put emphasis on Mexican-Americans, Latinos, women while organizing the growing independent registered voters) we have been successful in creating stronger coalitions with but not limited to the African-American community, the Asian community and Native Americans.  We anticipate the Republican Party submitting an immigration bill that is reasonable and will not create an underclass or taxation without representation before the November 2014 elections.  The more the GOP puts off a CIR bill, the more it will drive us to the polls out of righteous political anger reminiscent of the 2012 elections that cost the Republican Party the White House. 
 
 
###
 
Somos Independents is a national group of key swing independent registered Independent voters led by Mexican-American women voters who support bipartisanship in our government that will help solve tough issues.  We know the immigration issue is a federal matter and we rely on our Congress to fix the broken immigration system soon with legal immigration reform.  We are organizing the growing independent registered voter group, and we realize college-aged students prefer registering themselves as independents rather than choosing a major political party.  We believe in putting people before Party politics.  Co-founders include a former Republican and a former Democratic voter.

The Republican Immigration Preamble is a “Taxation Without Representation” Idea - Mexican-American Times

Why do Tea Party GOPers support Taxation Without Representation 4 Immigrants?

by Dee Dee Garcia Blase

tea-party-hypocrisy


Jacob Silverman reminds us: “At its core, the Boston Tea Party was a conflict over taxation. You may have heard the phrase “taxation without representation,” which developed in this era. Unlike their British brethren, the people living in the 13 colonies did not have direct representatives in the British parliament. Because of that, the colonists had no way to vote for how they would be taxed or who would represent them. And because of this lack of representation, the British government was free to tax the colonists in any way — and for any amount — that it saw fit. With no way to fight taxation and no way to claim their rights, many colonists feared that their property could be taken away through debilitating taxes.”

On the Carlos Galindo (the only National Radio show program communicating a political message in both Spanish and in English), Carlos reads the Republican / GOP preamble on immigration. Essentially the Hispanic and Women Voters believe the preamble is a big “F” you with regard to real immigration reform because the Republican Party is reluctant on getting behind a pathway to earned citizenship for the immigrant community who has been hiding in the shadows of society struggling for human dignity. Moreover, those of us who are economically astute realize we need new tax payers with the booming baby boomers who are exhausting a good chunk of our federal tax revenues. Yet, the GOP is not proactive to looming debt crisis with reasonable solutions.

This is the time where genuine immigration activists who are American citizen voters and are politically astute should step in.

Endorsing actions that support second class citizenship and leading to taxation without representation prematurely is a slippery slope and those who support such actions will be remembered in American history for supporting such prematurely and before the GOP-controlled House votes on CIR. We must wait and see how the Republican House of Representatives cast their vote on CIR first.

Women, Latino, Key Swing Independent Voters Cite Carmen On Why Republican Speaker Boehner Should Finish CIR Business Before Christmas Break

POSTED ON
December 12

Phoenix, AZ – Yesterday, the Arizona’s state police agency says one of its officers has resigned following the discovery that she was in the United States as an undocumented immigration after being brought from Mexico at a young age.   According toKPHO, Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves says Carmen Figueroa apparently was told by her family that she was born in the United States, though she was actually born in Mexico.    She was forced to resign.

The Carmen Figueroa incident is another example of a woman who demonstrated her hard work and contributions to our American society with regard to public safety. She lost her job and the economic impact this has on her and other families is another example of why legal immigration reform must be dealt with.  In a matter of months, the loss of her job could be devastating to her family.  This DPS officer is getting overwhelming support from compassionate people who see her as a contributing member of our society.

Women voters and the burgeoning Mexican American / Latino vote have witnessed Speaker John Boehner and most of the Republican House Representatives obstruct the advancement of legal comprehensive immigration reform in 2013.  They are not budging on advancing a bipartisan bill supported by our Republican Senator John McCain that would fix the broken immigration system.  A piece meal approach supported by restrictionist Republicans will not work because it does not give an incentive to the undocumented to pay more into the tax system when a path to earned citizenship is not on the table. Many undocumented are already skeptical a “DACA for all” system would merely be used for tracking purposes when the government wants to look for them and deport them later on.  Note: Many DREAMers have not fully taken advantage of DACA that was implemented by the Obama administration.

Thus far, we have witnessed Republican Speaker Boehner’s office berating and scaring small children and women voters from his office with Capitol security guards for praying and singing Christmas carols outside his office in support of immigration reform because they do not want to see their mom or dad deported.  We saw Speaker Boehner ignore those who have been fasting for families, he ignored Cardinal Dolan’s letter, and so forth.  RNC Reince Priebus has lied to Hispanic voters when he stated he wanted reach out to Hispanic voters, but none of these leaders are moving forward with urgency on fixing the No.1 issue that is important to us — immigration.   The message is clear to Women and Hispanic voters:   Republican House of Represenative leaders such as Speaker Boehner and Eric Cantor do not care about Latino families until they seek and beg our votes come election time.

Since Speaker Boehner is causing women and Hispanic voters to wait for an undetermined time, perhaps it would be a better idea for #WomenVoters who empathize for families and children to vote out obstructionist Republicans come 2014 while we wait.  With Democrats taking the House of Representatives, the Latino community may get a better legal comprehensive immigration reform deal than what the GOP is wanting to give us.

Women and Hispanic voters will remember how the Republican-led House of Representatives scheduled themselves for an almost 3 week vacation while unfinished business remains in 2013 as GOP House of Representatives continue to leave Americans and our national security weakened with so many living in the shadows.  In light of today’s technology, every person living in our Nation should be documented from a security standpoint.  Yet there are millions living here without documentation, and Republicans continue to drag their feet leaving us exposed because they do not support a legal mechanism in order for this to happen.  The House GOP knows the United States simply cannot afford to deport 11 million immigrants, and are good for the economy and tax revenues they contribute.

Congress Spends Hours Listening To Aliens While GOP-Led House Blocks CIR To Whom They Call "Illegal Aliens"

POSTED ON
December 06

I don’t like referring to earthly human beings as “illegal aliens” but it is a fact there are some Republicans who prefer to refer to undocumented people as “illegal aliens.”

Speaking of actual aliens, Congress was listening to Aliens from outerspace for a couple of hours recently.

Can you believe we are paying the Republican-led House of Representatives 6 figure salaries that cost American taxpayers at least $75 million per year with little to show for?   They won’t advance a legal comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) bill that will fix the broken immigration system that was passed by both Republicans and Democrats in the Democratic-led Senate this year, but they will take time to listen to “Aliens” from outer space.  

How is it that they will spend time listening to ‘aliens’ from outer space but they will not spend time listening to the undocumented immigrants in our own Homeland?

Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa is a fan of referring to undocumented people as “illegal aliens” and in fact he has made political threats to Speaker Boehner’s job.

 

Congress listens to aliens from outer space but won't listen to undocumented human beings before taking their Christmas breaks in 2013.

Congress listens to aliens from outer space but won’t listen to undocumented human beings before taking their Christmas breaks in 2013.

 

If you are guessing what Mexican American / Latino voters look for with regard to politicians and the level of intensity and urgency on fixing the broken immigration system — look no more.  Rep. Jared Polis nailed it.  He knows the GOP is blocking immigration reform from advancing.  As such, we are going to tell those key swing independent voters in Colorado the kind of material they should keep!

It’s too bad GOP leaders like Speaker John Boehner and Reince Priebus are out of touch with common hard working people and women.

GOP Leader Eric Cantor Office Has Small Children Removed by Police Threatening Arrests For Singing

Rep. Eric Cantor can't walk and chew gum at the same time in the political arena.

 

See this video where police berate little kids for singing at Republican Leader Eric Cantor's Office.

For those who don't really know who Cantor is, Michael Takiff sheds why:

He writes:

These days Eric Cantor is steering the United States Treasury to default — and the world economy to catastrophe — as he defends to the death the sacred right of corporate jet owners to amortize their aircraft over five years instead of seven. Not long ago he was giving George W. Bush all the credit for killing bin Laden. Before that he was threatening to shut down the government over the budget bill. Earlier he claimed that the House of Representatives could make law without the approval of the Senate or the president.

Am I the only Jew in America who finds the House majority leader deeply embarrassing to our people? Am I the only tribe member who considers this smarmy yutz today’s numero-unoshonda fur die goyim?

...

And that’s why, Eric, if being Jewish means anything it means that we feel for the oppressed, the poor, the powerless. It means that we ask fat cats to pay a few more dollars to the IRS so that we don’t have to slash funding for Medicaid. It means that it’s an easy decision when we have to choose between continuing to pay subsidies to wildly profitable oil companies and retaining school lunch programs.

Eric, bubbeleh, put down the hair spray for a minute and pay attention. At the seder table every Passover we talk of freedom, we talk of justice. We don’t talk of cutting funds for the medical care of poor people. We recall that Moses said to Pharoah, “Let my people go.” He didn’t say, “Let my people pay a lower capital gains tax.”

 

If the GOP and Reince Priebus think Cantor is good for Women and Hispanic Vote outeach -- they had better guess again.  Do these Republicans think they will appeal to the women matriarch voters who are protective of children to begin with?

My they are out of touch.

Latina Voters Invoke the Todd Akin Card: Reince Priebus Should Tell Speaker Boehner He Won’t Get Penny From RNC For 2013 CIR Inaction

RNC Chair underestimates matriarch role within Hispanic voting community in 2013 regarding broken immigration system and the GOP's inaction.

RNC Chair underestimates matriarch role within Hispanic voting community in 2013 regarding broken immigration system and the GOP’s inaction.

The Hispanic electorate favored President Obama by a stunning 3-1 ratio in the 2012 election, crediting Republicans like Sen. John McCain for helping push the immigration bill over the Senate finish line.  Reince Priebus broke his silence on immigration almost 6 months ago, and at that rate it is no wonder why we didn’t catch Osama Bin Laden under President George W. Bush’s watch.

During the key Presidential election year in 2012, Reince Priebus said  Todd Akin’s was not getting a penny from the RNC, even if the race is tied.  But as we approach 2014 Elections, all Reince Priebus has to do with his claim in an effort to reach the burgeoning Hispanic electorate vote is to essentially tell Speaker Boehner the same thing he said of Todd Akin. The Republican National Committee leader would simply need to nudge Boehner in the right direction and tell him he won’t  get a penny from the RNC, too, for his 2013 legal comprehensive immigration reform inaction.  The 2013 inaction will be fresh in the minds of Hispanic and women voters come 2014 costing Republicans seats in competitive races thereby costing them the power there.

Despite the tea party obstructionist tactics, the Tea Party-led House of Representatives have lower ratings than President Obama.  In fact, American women voters will remind Americans that the Taxed Enough Already (T.E.A.) Republican Representatives simply gave themselves extended Holiday breaks on the taxpayer’s dime when they gained the House majority.  The House of Representatives do not deserve extended breaks considering there is much to be done.

I repeat, immigration is a federal matter, yet the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and Ohio Speaker Boehner are preventing progress in fixing the clearly broken system that is costing taxpayers millions of dollars. We have asked the Ohio GOP, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, Representatives John Boehner, David Joyce and Bill Johnson to lead and fix issues that are important to women and Hispanic voters they claim to want to reach out to, and all have expressed no urgency to fix the broken system this year.

Earlier this year the RNC Chairman Priebus spoke of the GOP going ‘big and bold‘ but what Mexican American / Hispanic and women voters see is the “Party of No” in their attempt to make a black President look like he accomplished little with their blocks paving a way for the great white hope.

God help them.  Maybe someday they will finally come to their knees and realize we are all human beings with different pigment skin color.

Ohio Republican Speaker Boehner Viewed as 2013 Scrooge Despite Former Senator John McCain Immigraiton Aide

POSTED ON
December 04

Carlos Galindo Show

Hell no we are not going to calm down through the Holidays, knowing Republican Speaker Boehner has ties to ALEC and lobbyists with their backroom deals and encouraging private prison profits in detaining immigrants who work agricultural field jobs Americans don’t want.  We will continue to step it up and remind every Mexican-American Latino voter out there how Republicans failed to act on immigration reform even though the Democratic-controlled Senate passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill months ago.  We will put pressure on RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Speaker Boehner through the holidays and paint them the scrooges that they are. Speaker Boehner wants to pacify us with the Rebecca Tallent move, but how can we have peace when so many of our people suffer during the Christmas Season?  What will pacify us now is Boehner (who has control of the House of Representatives schedule) putting CIR up for vote this year.

As Boehner has plans to put off CIR, he and RNC Chariman Reince Priebus are making a grave mistake when informed Latino voters will remember the lack of urgency and inaction in 2013 because it will stay fresh in our 2014 election minds when we cast our ballots at the booth. Why is Speaker Boehner’s using a Senator John McCain former aid when he can simply support the bipartisan plan Senator John McCain introduced?  All Speaker Boehner has to do is put tthe legal comprehensive immigration reform bill (CIR) on the floor considering we  already know we have the bipartsian votes according to Rep. Nancy Pelosi.

Nationally syndicated radio show host via Carlos Galindo spoke in great detail with regard toSpeaker Boehner’s hire of former Senator John McCain’s aid via Rebecca Tallent on his show today.  Keep in mind, Galindo has the ear of thousands of immigrants, Latinos, Mexican-Americans and the Chicano community nationwide. His influence is growing with his left of center political talk show.

But “El Toro” via Carlos Galindo is not easily fooled.  Below are the points Galindo brought up on his show regarding Becky Tallent, and I wholeheartedly agree with his analysis of this move:

“Becky will use her immigration muscle with an attitude from her to the tune of ‘I’ve got experience don’t challenge me,’ but….she has to be a master manipulator in light of  her experience with think tanks.”

“Is the Becky Tallent move a deceptive ploy to delay immigration reform this year?”

“Immigration activists must ask her specific questions like:  Where are you on path to citizenship, border security and visas?”

“Are Republicans gonna dip their finger in the porridge and simply give us the “Rebecca Tallent” flavor, while Latinos are ignored the nutrients and a part of what is inside that bowl?  Republicans don’t want to give us what is in the bowl, but simply tease us with a flavor to pacify us through the holidays.”

Galindo used a familiar Spanish expression to this immigration / Latino audience:  ’Nos quieren dar atole con el dedo” which means they are wanting to give us a taste, but not the entire bowl. Atole, by the way is a form of grits. Here is a definition: “Atole was served in the morning and evening. It is a hot cereal made of ground, roasted grain; not unlike Cream of Wheat or Grits.” 

“It’s typical for false leaders to entice you with a little bit of something, rather than ensuring you get at least enough to receive the “nutrients” you need.  A little bit of grits with the finger so you can taste it, but never get the whole thing.”

Galindo also referenced Becky Tallent as a Christmas caroler Speaker Boehner offers to immigration activists in an effort to pacify us because he has been shamed from Latino voters across the Nation during his Thanksgiving Holiday.   Boehner probably believes the Christmas caroler might calm immigration activists throughout his 3 week Christmas vacation and he wants as much peace from criticism as possible.  But how can he expect us to calm down when we know 11 million families across the Nation are still suffering?

 

Speaking of suffering, After 22 continuous days of fasting, the four primary leaders of the Fast for Families Immigration Action, Eliseo Medina, Dae Joong Yoon, Cristian Avila, and Lisa Sharon Harper, have ended their fast today. They had abstained from all food since November 12, and vowed to fast until they could no longer physically do so.

 

Republican leaders and Speaker Boehner ignore those who are fasting for keeping immigrant families together in 2013.

Republican leaders and Speaker Boehner ignore those who are fasting for keeping immigrant families together in 2013, yet, the best he could do was ‘dar atole con el dedo’ which essentially is a slap in the face to Latino voters.  No CIR 2013 vote = No GOP 2014 vote.
