WestVirginiaRebel Posted July 25, 2014 Share Posted July 25, 2014 Breitbart: In a free-wheeling discussion that touched on dozens of proposals for how to address the tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children streaming across the southern U.S. borders, one thread connected the calls to add to or change a border crisis proposal from GOP leadership: President Barack Obama. The proposals included trying to prevent a future executive amnesty by Obama, telling the president what he should do to enforce the law in a non-binding resolution, and even putting impeachment on the table. Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) told colleagues that the House should pass legislation with new steps to secure the border, and tell Obama if he didn't implement it, they would impeach him. "He either enforces the laws on the books—as he was hired and elected to do—or he leaves Congress no option. This is not our choice, this is the President's choice and I would advise him to uphold the law on the books," Yoho said in a written statement after the meeting. “People were hissing at that because they don't want to go there,” said a GOP member who was in the room. At the other end of the spectrum, Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA), a top proponent of comprehensive immigration reform, expressed befuddled frustration with conservative colleagues resistant to passing the package put together by a working group of members appointed by Speaker John Boehner. “I have all my ideas about this, a lot of you guys – what you tell me is, we gotta secure the border and send 'em home. Now you have a chance to secure the border and send 'em home, but you're saying we can't do it,” he said, to laughter. ________ Options and optics.
