As President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the left-wing network lobbying for House Republicans to pass immigration legislation gear up for a renewed push, leaders of the conservative movement are calling on House Speaker John Boehner to once and for all make the public promises necessary to close the door on amnesty.

In a letter that a coalition of more than 130 local and national conservative leaders have signed, provided exclusively to Breitbart News ahead of its public release, the signers call on Boehner to close down Obama’s pathway to amnesty. They specifically are calling on Boehner to publicly close down any procedural avenues, like a conference committee, that could be used to somehow revive the Senate “Gang of Eight” bill. At this point, Boehner has not made the promises these leaders are calling for.

“We applaud your commitment to applying the Hastert Rule to immigration legislation pending before the House of Representatives,” they wrote. “As you know, the Senate immigration bill, S. 744, would undermine the rule of law by granting amnesty to those here in violation of current law, it would devastate millions of un- and under-employed American workers, and it would cost trillions of dollars in additional entitlement and health care spending.”

There's a reason he hasn't given those promises yet...
