Last week, we blew the whistle on an amendment that would have opened up the floodgates at the border and allowed anyone to enter the United States and get asylum simply by claiming to be victims of spousal abuse.
Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) -- the Chair of the House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee -- tried to sneak this amendment through, going so far as to only hold a voice vote so there was no record of which Congressmen in his subcommittee actually voted for it.
We buried Congress in FaxBlasts, ultimately forcing Yoder to back down and agree to remove the heinous provision.
But now, we're learning that this isn't the only amnesty provision that was added to the House's Homeland Security spending bill. Yoder also pushed through an amendment to protect nearly 1 million of Obama's illegal alien "Dreamers" from deportation!
The new provision was written by Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-CA), but approved by GOPers in the committee. The hidden amendment 'prohibits expenditure of funds to detain or deport any DACA or Temporary Protected Status program recipients.'
What this means is that the Trump administration would be blocked from deporting ANY illegal alien or migrant who has received amnesty from a previous President.
This is absolutely shameful. Every time we turn around, establishment Republicans are trying to give amnesty to even more illegal aliens.
The Left is trying to remove Trump's leverage in the immigration debate. President Trump's ace in the hole is that ultimately, he can remove amnesty recipients from the country. Already, his administration has arrested or deported thousands of Obama's amnesty recipients for committing crimes against this country.
If Democrats want the illegals to stay, they'll need to deal on issues like the border wall and chain migration. But the Left thinks they can get everything they want without having to secure the border. And establishment Republicans are now helping them!
The Aguilar amendment would be the biggest amnesty surrender ever and let these illegals stay in the US indefinitely. Not only would this protect Obama's "Dreamers," but it would also protect "temporary" amnesty recipients as well. These are people who were displaced by natural disasters decades ago and given temporary shelter, but now refuse to go home.
In 1998, a hurricane hit Honduras. The United States sent humanitarian aid and accepted 57,000 Hondurans as refugees. They were given temporary protected status so they could live and work in the US until their country rebuilt. That was 20 years ago and they're still here, even though Honduras has long since recovered from that hurricane. President Trump said 'enough is enough' and ordered these people returned to their country by 2020. This new establishment amnesty provision would let them -- and hundreds of thousands of other people -- stay in the United States indefinitely.
This is why we fight so hard against the GOP establishment's amnesty agenda. Just this one-sentence amendment, when added to the spending bill, would grant amnesty to over a million people. And with the help of Democrats, Republicans just got it added in!
The mainstream media doesn't have time to cover each sentence in a bill that is hundreds of pages long. Congressional leaders are counting on this. They are counting on being able to pull the wool over your eyes.
Prove them wrong!
Every day, we find a new way that the GOP is trying to stab us in the back. They plot in secret and pass these amendments behind closed doors in order to sneak them through.
But we are fighting back... and it's working.
I already mentioned the domestic violence asylum amendment. Together, we fought back and forced the GOP to stand down.
Yesterday, we bombarded Congress with demands to build the wall or be removed from office. Mitch McConnell was forced to reverse course and come out in support of the border wall.
Now it is time to dismantle this horrible amnesty amendment as well before it is too late!
