Establishment Republicans aren’t giving up on their dream of granting millions of illegal aliens amnesty.
These swamp creatures are hatching a new plan in Congress to go behind Donald Trump’s back.
And Paul Ryan is playing a horrible role in this scheme.
Paul Ryan and his leadership team are refusing to whip votes for a conservative immigration bill supported by the President.
And he is sitting back while pro-amnesty Republicans are scheming with Democrats to use a “discharge petition” to bring amnesty to the floor of the House for a vote.
If just 25 Republicans join the 193 Democrats in signing the discharge petition, they can bring mass amnesty legislation up for a vote.
We actually want to solve the DACA problem … it is clear to us that we are going to have to have a bill that is bipartisan, but one that the president can support. That is what we are working on right now…
I want to fix this problem, so I would like to have an immigration vote before the midterms, but I want to have a vote on something that could make it into law. I don’t want to have show ponies, I want to have actual law, and that mean the White House has to be part of this.
But the Democrats have already rejected multiple bipartisan proposals from the GOP, said Virginia GOP Rep. Dave Brat. The reform bill offered by Goodlatte “is the compromise,” said Brat, adding:
“The Goodlatte bill deals with the 700,000 ‘DACA’ [people] who have that status, and the Democrats said no after asking for that… [President Donald] Trump gave them an even bigger offer of 2 million DACA, and the Democrats said no to that.”
The “bipartisan compromise” only seems to be a Republican compromise — it never seems to be a Democratic compromise.”
Ryan is allowing these traitorous Republicans to push for amnesty because he thinks they need it to win re-election.
But an amnesty vote would only serve to split the GOP and depress the base ahead of the midterms.
Do you agree amnesty is bad policy as well as bad politics?
