From the Politico this morning Orange County Congressman Dana Rohrabacher’s drawing his own line in the sand on the House Immigration Bill:
“If Speaker Boehner moves forward and permits this to come to a vote even though the majority of the Republicans in the House—and that’s if they do—oppose whatever it is that’s coming to a vote, he should be removed as Speaker,” Rohrabacher said on World Net Daily radio on Monday…“I would consider that a betrayal of the Republican members of the House and a betrayal of the Republicans throughout the country,” Rohrabacher said.

Tears Apart Rubio On Immigration, Says Boehner ‘Should Be Removed As Speaker’ If He Backs and The Hill: Rohrabacher: Boehner ‘should be removed as Speaker’ if he moves Senate immigration bill. He’s also had plenty to say about GOP sweetheart, Florida Senator Marco Rubio:
Rohrabacher blasted his GOP colleague Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), a member of the Gang of Eight, for his
part in pushing immigration reform. “Rubio is so confused and so mixed up I think that he has given up his rightful place to advise any of us in Washington what to do, and certainly given up any right to be trusted by the American people,” he said. “It was over and over, contradiction after contradiction, lie after lie.”
Rohrabacher accused Rubio of using “weasel words” to make the case for reform, and said the Florida senator claimed to support a stronger border as a pre-condition for the legalization of immigrants in the country illegally, but backed down in the face of criticism. “He all along has been saying all along that we need to have border security first, and then when he gets on Spanish TV, he ends up saying, no, no, that will never get in the way, that legalization status isn’t contingent on border control,” Rohrabacher said. “Well, this is outrageous and no one should believe him.”
