House Speaker John Boehner’s new pro-amnesty advocate immigration staffer Rebecca Tallent was heard on national television earlier this year admitting that she has no faith in American workers.

“The unemployment rate, and this is definitely a situation that’s different than when we addressed this the last time in 2006 and 2007, the last time we tried to do immigration reform, the [un]employment rate is much higher now,” Tallent said in an appearance on C-SPAN in March 2013, while working for the Bipartisan Policy Center and pushing for the Senate to develop the “Gang of Eight” bill. “But I think that you’re in a way comparing apples to oranges, no pun intended, because a lot of these jobs are ag[riculture] jobs.”

Tallent then continued on by making remarks that questioned whether the several million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed would do certain jobs.

“Whether we want to admit it or not, and this is probably going to get me some angry callers,” she prefaced her remarks before letting it out that she believes Americans cannot any longer rise to the occasion to do the work necessary in several instances.

“There are jobs that American workers will not do,” Tallent said.

Tallent pointed to an example that she said former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a GOP establishment politician who used to be paid by the government of Mexico to lobby for amnesty, to back up her theory that American workers can’t rise to the occasion and do the jobs that illegal aliens seem to want to do.

“Gov. Barbour uses a great example when he’s talking about this, that there’s a chicken processing plant in Mississippi that’s a couple of miles from the state penitentiary,” Tallent said. “They have this program that allows prisoners to leave prison to go and work and make six dollars an hour processing chickens. They said that they’ve never had a prisoner last more than two days cleaning chickens, that they would rather be in their cells in prison than go and work in this chicken processing plant because it’s just such hard, dirty, nasty work.”

Boehner spokesman Michael Steel has not responded to a request for comment in response to this revelation.

Reid: Boehner Will 'Cave' on Amnesty
 by Tony Lee 4 Dec 2013, 2:56 PM PDT post a comment
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) believes House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will "cave in" on comprehensive immigration reform and a pathway to citizenship.

“I feel positive we will get an immigration bill passed,” Reid told the Las Vegas Sun on Sunday, two days before Boehner hired an adviser who has helped Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) push amnesty.

Reid, specifically speaking about a "pathway to citizenship" provision that the Congressional Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers, said he believed Boehner is going to "cave in" to the pressure. Big-business interests and the high-tech lobby, such as Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg's FWD.us political group, have put pressure on House Republicans to pass immigration reform.

Though Boehner and other House Republicans have said they would not conference with the existing Senate bill, they have not ruled out going to conference on different piecemeal reform bills. Democrats and President Barack Obama have said that they would be okay with immigration reform being broken up into pieces so long as all the pieces passed. And Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has said  his "Republican friends" have told him they want a comprehensive immigration reform bill in everything but name only.

I completely disagree. Boner will not cave to proposed Democrat changes on immigration policy. Period.
