‘VOTE FOR PAUL RYAN IS VOTE FOR AMNESTY': Luis Gutierrez Endorses Ryan For Speaker

By Julia Hahn

Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) is endorsing Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for Speaker of the House of Representatives. Gutierrez, perhaps the most extreme open-borders advocate in Congress, was interviewed on MSNBC.

As CNN is now reporting, “Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez on MSNBC called Ryan one of the smartest men in the GOP. ‘He would be good for the country,’ Gutierrez said. ‘He would be good for the Republican Party. Paul Ryan is the kind of individual that would work with people on the other side of the aisle and that’s what we need.'”

Gutierrez has worked tirelessly to expand immigration levels and open America’s borders up to the rest of the world. As Gutierrez once declared, “I have only one loyalty…and that’s to the immigrant community.”

Gutierrez and Paul Ryan have been longtime partners on efforts to open Americans borders. Indeed, Paul Ryan is arguably the most pro-amnesty GOP lawmaker in Congress, and even supports expanding immigration levels beyond many Democrats.

Many amnesty opponents believe that if Ryan had been House Speaker, rather than Rep. John Boehner (R-OH), the Gang of Eight bill would have been sent to President Obama’s desk.

As NumbersUSA’s Director of Government Relations told Breitbart News: “A vote for Paul Ryan is a vote for Gang of Eight style amnesty that includes massive increases in legal immigration and replacing American workers with foreign-born workers. A vote for Paul Ryan is a vote to continue Obama’s transformation of America.”

Luis Gutierrez has called Paul Ryan his “good friend” and “guiding light” on immigration. Gutierrez’s glowing comments are featured on Ryan’s website to this day.

As Politico reported in 2012, “Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said Wednesday that Paul Ryan had reached across the aisle to work with him on immigration reform and added that the Wisconsin Republican told him, “I want to do it because it’s the right thing.”

In 2013, Guterriez described Ryan as his ally in Gutierrez’s goal to “free” the illegal immigrant community: “When I sit down and talk to people, I clear the table, so I can see Paul Ryan not as budget chairman… but as a friend and an ally to free 11 million people.”

Indeed, Paul Ryan helped craft the House Republican Immigration Principles that doomed Eric Cantor’s congressional career and whipped votes for Obama’s amnesty plan. Ryan also opposed Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)’ effort to kill the Gang of Eight bill. When then-Ranking Member Jeff Sessions exposed how the Gang of Eight bill would cost American taxpayers trillions, Ryan used his Budget Committee prestige in the House to argue that an influx of poor immigrants would somehow reduce the deficit.

As Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz recently wrote, “There is nobody around in the party who is more fanatically dedicated to the cause of open borders than Paul Ryan.” Ryan has even campaigned for amnesty with Gutierrez.

A Congressional aide told Breitbart News, “Putting Paul Ryan’s finger on the nuclear switch when it comes to open borders is one of the most terrifying thoughts imaginable. It’s no different than giving La Raza control over whether America has a border.” If Ryan became speaker, he would have unilateral control over whether amnesty and immigration-expansion legislation came up for a vote.

America’s foreign-born population is at an all-time record high of more than 42 million, but Ryan has argued that America faces labor shortages unless even more poor immigrants are provided to wealthy CEOs.

Ryan has similarly come under criticism for busting federal budget caps, pushing through spending and debt increases, having been “shredded” by Joe Biden in the Vice Presidential 2012 debate, and being one of the central architects of Obamatrade.

In what may come to be regarded as one of American political history’s greatest ironies, a revolt which began with the unseating of Majority Leader Eric Cantor would result in the installment of his intellectual soulmate, Paul Ryan, as Speaker of the House.

However, whereas Gutierrez criticized Cantor for not being open borders enough, he has endorsed his longtime ally Paul Ryan. Whereas a Pelosi speakership would likely make an amnesty compromise between a GOP senate and Democrat House impossible, if Ryan wields the gavel, the Gang of Eight – or something just like it – could very quickly come back to life.

As Ryan once told the pro-amnesty Hispanic Chamber of Commerce “To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws… it’s really a question of ‘when.’”

JERUSALEM (AP) -- A Palestinian teenager stabbed two Israelis in Jerusalem Saturday before being shot dead by police forces, the latest in a series of stabbing attacks against civilians and soldiers that have spread across Israel and the West Bank in the past week.

The wave of attacks started in Jerusalem weeks ago over ..... rumors .... They have since spread to the rest on the country. On Friday, for the first time since the current violence began, clashes broke out along the Gaza border. Palestinians there burned tires and threw rocks at Israeli troops on the frontier. Seven Palestinians were killed.

Recent days have seen a series of attacks by young Palestinians wielding household items like kitchen knives, screwdrivers and even a vegetable peeler (Obama executive decree in 3, 2 ....).

More OT (also AP raw)


WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Department of Transportation says Washington's subway system will be under direct federal supervision because of safety lapses.

Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a letter posted Friday on the department's website that Federal Transit Administration officials could intervene when safety concerns arise on Metro.

The move means Metro will become the first U.S. subway system placed under direct federal supervision.

As diff: "refuseniks"? Well, yeah. In a fascist state. Where the "opposition" is part of the apparatus!

More/same .... variations on a theme.

AP reports yet another terror attack/stabbing, today in Israel (2x today). This latest, three police officers. Six hours after, two people were stabbed this morning, in Jerusalem. ALL perps dead, tyvm.

In context:

"A week ago, Eitam and Na’ama Henkin were brutally executed by Palestinian terrorists point-blank in their car. Their four children, Matan, 9, Nitzan, 7, Neta, 4, and Itamar, 9 months old, who are now orphaned, were still in the back seat and miraculously unharmed.

Days later, two more Israelis were stabbed to death in Jerusalem. One of the men killed was holding his two year old child at the time.

Over the past 48 hours in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and virtually all parts of Israel, we have had OVER 150 TERROR ATTACKS including stabbings, shootings, stones thrown and vehicular rammings."
