Of course he will.  Boehner is a spineless wuss.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

I'm sure that is the plan agreed on by the two of them. :amen:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

I guess we will see if Boehner is a man of his word or just another Judas.  Caving on immigration reform just before the midterm elections would be beyond stupid regardless even if Boehner favors amnesty.  But, it would not surprise me if Boehner is just that stupid.

If the GOP insists on sticking its collective head in the sand when it comes to some sort of reasonable immigration reform, even if it only makes some common sense changes around the edges, then it will be demonstrating its own irresponsibility and failure to come to grips with what leadership is and what it means.

Furthermore, if the GOP sticks its collective head in the sand on this issue, it will leave the field to the democrats/liberals, who will most definitely craft a "reform" that none of us will be able to stomache.  A post hoc legalization to the status of guest workers for current illegal aliens ought to be a no-brainer for the GOP as a preferable alternative to full green-card legalization for illegal aliens under a "reform" drafted solely by leftist/liberal democrats.

The left doesn't want sensible immigration reform as exhibited by the passage of the Senate bill.  The left wants amnesty with no enforcement.   

How there can be any discussion of reform without first securing the border is beyond lunacy.

We already did 'sensible immigration reform' back in the '80's and were promised that amnesty wouldn't happen again.  What empty promises will be given this time by those who are dedicated to destroying the United States?  'Sensible reform' will lock the U.S. into the same underclass mentality that the Brits enjoy.

The sole purpose of the Republican Party is to serve as an ineffective alternative to the Democrat Party.

Give us our amnesty now and we'll give you your border enforcement next Tuesday!  Yeah! RIGHT!

Well, I for one am tired of this amnesty thing hanging over my head - Harry Reid lies like a rug, and his predictions are often worthless, but if Boehner passes this, it's hitting the self-destruct button on the GOP. Amnesty ("comprehensive immigration reform") is even more unpopular than Obamacare ever was.

How there can be any discussion of "securing the border" without implementing an oppressive regime worthy of East Germany, or Nazi Germany, in its heyday is beyond lunacy.  And it is precisely because the borders cannot be "secured" without recourse to Gestapo-style tactics that the immigration laws must be reformed.  To not reform them will be to leave the borders permanently insecure and the government without any useful information on who's coming in.
