Last month, Establishment Republicans came just one vote short of forcing a vote on the Left's clean amnesty bill.
They teamed up with Democrats and used a process known as a "discharge petition." If they get 218 signatures, they can bypass the Speaker of the House entirely and force a vote on their amnesty bill. That means that they need 25 Republicans to vote with all of the Democrats.
Their last attempt ended up with 24 GOP signatures. At the last minute, Paul Ryan stepped in to stop any more Republicans from signing onto it. Now that both of the GOP's immigration bills failed, these cowards are once again teaming up with the Democrats to cement Obama's illegal alien amnesty into law.
They need just one vote.
It was conservatives in Congress that stopped the Republican establishment's amnesty bill from passing last week. That was because of YOUR activism.
But now, the RINOs are going with Plan B. They're moving forward with the Democrats to not only make Obama's amnesty program permanent, but put these illegal aliens on a pathway to citizenship as well.
All while completely blocking the border wall.
It is time to fight with everything you've got. The GOP establishment and Democrats want to put a take-it or leave-it immigration bill onto Trump's desk, one that gives amnesty (and a pathway to citizenship) to all of Obama's illegal aliens without funding the wall, cracking down on sanctuary cities, or dealing with the immigration lottery or chain migration.
It isn't just the Democrats on this. We now have confirmation that more than two dozen Republicans have agreed to team up with the Left to push this amnesty bill. They've hit their magic number to force a vote.
We've already seen what happens in the Senate when an amnesty bill comes along. The most dangerous place in the world to be is in between a Republican Senator and a bill to legalize illegal aliens… When the Senate put four different immigration bills up for a vote earlier this spring, the legislation that received the most votes was actually the clean amnesty bill.
President Trump is pushing for border security. That includes a border wall and giving Border Patrol the power to turn illegal aliens away. It includes shutting down sanctuary cities and making sure that we have a merit-based immigration system.
The Establishment is desperate to block that. They want no-questions-asked amnesty with an open border to let as many illegal aliens in. We see that in the Left's new calls to abolish ICE.
And now, they claim they have the necessary votes.
We can still beat this. We can still stop this from happening.
The GOP tried to placate the Left. They put up an amnesty bill that would have given the Democrats almost everything they wanted.
Not a single Democrat voted for the bill. Why? Because they know they have votes to get full illegal alien amnesty without having to fund the border wall.
And now that's what they are forcing a vote on.
Now is the time to fight. Fight for this country. Fight for our future.
And when we win, you can tell your children and grand-children that you you fought for them.
When my grand-children and great-grandchildren ask what I did to save this country, I want the answer to be "everything I possibly could."
What do you want your answer to be?
