Obama’s Agenda-Pushers Having Trouble Finding Amnesty Supporters

07.02.13 02:23 PM

Organizing for action, a nonprofit set up to push President Barack Obama’s agenda, has put forth considerable effort in organizing rallies aimed at convincing lawmakers to get on board with amnesty-heavy immigration reform initiatives. Despite its massive 13 million-member email list, however, the organization seems to be having a tough time rallying supporters for amnesty.

From Huffington Post:
Organizing for Action, the nonprofit policy advocacy arm formed to push President Barack Obama’s agenda, gathered only eight people to rally outside of the Merillville office of Rep. Pete Visclosky (D-Ind.) on Monday to push the congressman to support reform. The congressman was not actually in his office at the time. …

…OFA members in southeast Tennessee made a slightly better showing, with 20 people coming out to rally in celebration of the Senate passing an immigration bill. And OFA organized 25 people to rally outside House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) West Chester Township office Monday.

A speech by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) drew hundreds to a rally in support of immigration reform in Las Vegas on Monday.

After the Senate passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill on June 27 by a margin of 68-32, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated that the House would apply some breaks to process. Rather than up the Senate bill, Boehner pledged to pass a House measure. Boehner also said that he will invoke the Hastert Rule, which requires the majority of the majority to support a bill before it comes up for a vote in the House.

House lawmakers are set to take up the immigration debate in coming weeks. Republicans in the lower chamber insisted Sunday that they plan to change key elements of the Senate-passed immigration bill.
