It is hard for any President to stand firm on a government shutdown when members of his own party start abandoning their commitment to border security. As we reported yesterday, there were SIX Republican Senators who voted with Democrats to re-open the government without appropriating any funds for border security.
That meant that the Democrat bill to block the wall actually received more votes in the Republican-controlled house.
Without his own party's support, President Trump was left with a decision to make. He chose to temporarily re-open the Federal government for three weeks and vowed to shut it down again if Democrats still refused to approve the border wall.
Establishment GOPers like Mitt Romney cheered. They wanted a chance to negotiate an amnesty bill, and now they've got it.
The Federal government hasn't even been re-opened for a day, and Republicans are already negotiating with Democrats for the biggest amnesty program ever even imagined.
The left wants amnesty for illegal aliens working in the agricultural industry. Anyone who can prove that they've worked (illegally) on a farm for at least 100 days in a two year period would get a green card. Democrats are demanding amnesty for 1.5 million of these illegals.
They are demanding amnesty for the so-called "dreamers" that are covered under Obama's old executive order. Even though there are currently just under 800k recipients under the DACA program, the Left wants it expanded to 1.7 million illegals.
They want amnesty for TPS recipients. These are people who were granted temporary visas to flee civil war or natural disasters in Central and South America decades ago, but refused to go home once their countries rebuilt.
On top of that, the Left is demanding that we loosen the country's asylum laws to allow more illegal aliens to game the system and get asylum in the US. Their plan calls for asylum to be granted to any illegal alien that claims to have been victims of domestic abuse in their home country, even if the claim isn't provable.
All of these changes would put these illegal aliens on the pathway to citizenship within five years… They could be voting in time for the 2024 Presidential election…
But this is only half of the Left's plan. The other is to make sure that the border wall never gets built, ensuring that more illegals come and they get to demand more amnesty in a decade. By that time, with millions of illegal aliens being legally added to the voter roll, it will be too late to stop it.
No, the time to stop it is right now and only right now!
Tell Congress NO amnesty! Send your instant FaxBlast to Congress right now and threaten to remove every Congressman and Senator who signs onto this radical amnesty plan!If they get away with this amnesty surrender, it is all over.
There is a reason that Democrats are demanding a "smart wall" of sensors and drones instead of a physical border wall. They know that once illegal aliens step one foot onto US soil, they would qualify for asylum and amnesty if this new immigration bill passes.
This isn't just a fight over the border wall. This is a fight for the future of this country.
We don't get a do over on this. President Trump has given Congress three weeks to come up with an immigration bill that funds the border wall. Instead, Republicans are running as far left as they can and signing onto an amnesty bill that, if it passes, we will never recover from.
This your fight. You can't sit this out!
