House Republicans, led by Speaker John Boehner, caved in to Democrat demands and passed a “clean” funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday.
The bill includes funding for Obama’s executive amnesty actions, a sticking point for conservatives.
The legislation provides funding for Obama’s move to shield about 5 million illegals from deportation.
Boehner and the Republicans who passed the bill picked the same day as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address before Congress — perhaps using it as cover to push the bill through with less major media attention.
The New York Daily News reported that Boehner addressed Republicans and told them that the immigration issue in the hands of the courts and Congress should “move on with other business.”
The News, however, summed up the conservative argument succinctly.
Many conservatives have long argued that allowing Obama’s amnesty order to be funded means the president’s program will continue, despite what the courts may rule, as the administration has previously shown its willingness to defy or bypass court orders.
And once amnesty is in place, critics contend, non-citizens falling under its protections could well be put on a path to the voting booth that would give their Democrat enablers a virtual lock on national political power.
Can there be a quicker way to “fundamentally transform America” than to create a virtual one-party system by flooding the country with new, Democrat, voters?

While we were busy discussing the high points of Netanyahu’s speech, Boehner and his band of thugs approved O’s plan to give away the farm to illegals. When the power of the purse was all he had, he just opened the checkbook and walked away.
Why aren’t the other two-thirds of the Republicans demanding his resignation?
Imagine the ramifications this will have on the 2016 elections. We’re seeing what it looks like to have a one-party government.
