Dana Rohrabacher warns John Boehner on speakershipSubmitted by wellington on Tue, 06/18/2013 - 09:19
“I would consider that a betrayal of the Republican members of the House and a betrayal of the Republicans throughout the country,” Rohrabacher said.
Rohrabacher also said he is “alerting the American people to this danger that is right upon us” and he slammed the Gang of Eight for voting down Sen. Chuck Grassley’s (R-Iowa) amendment requiring the implementation of stricter border security before legalization. “There will be no border security improvements. It’ll all be a facade,” Rohrabacher said of the bill.
Number one on Rohrabacher’s list is Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), whom he accused of using “weasel words” in a bid for reform. “Rubio is so mixed up and so confused. I think he has given up his rightful place to advise any of us in Washington what to do and…he’s given up any right to be trusted by the American people,” Rohrabacher said.
He continued: “I’m not going to vote for any bill that has a provision that legalizes the status of those people who are here illegally.”
