One Week To Stop Establishment GOP Amnesty Bill

Our sources on Capitol Hill have alerted us to the fact the House Republican Conference is having a conference meeting on immigration “reform” and RINO Republican Rep. Jeff Denham’s discharge petition next Thursday, June 7.  The establishment Republican “leaders” of the House Republicans, Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise are hoping to work out an amnesty deal by that time.

As we’ve explained in previous articles, amnesty has come roaring back to life in the form of H.Res. 774, a resolution providing for consideration of H.R. 4760, a bill to amend the immigration laws and the homeland Jeff Denham amnestysecurity laws through what is known on Capitol Hill a “Queen of the Hill” process.

The Resolution, sponsored by open borders RINO Rep. Jeff Denham of California, sets up a deal whereby the House would consider four bills, and the one with the most votes over 218 would become the House bill on immigration.

The bait for this ruse is that it brings H.R. 4760, the so-called Goodlattte bill, to the Floor of the House, along with the Democrat’s DREAM Act legalizing 3.6 million illegal aliens, Denham’s RINO version of the DREAM Act, which legalizes 3.6 million illegal aliens, and includes a study of border security, and – here’s the kicker – an as yet undisclosed immigration bill to be offered by Speaker Paul Ryan, or his designee.

The Goodlatte bill, while far from perfect, is the alternative preferred by many conservatives. It may or may not get 218 votes depending on how many RINOs defect and how many Democrats from conservative states feel the heat of the 2018 election.

The so-called “clean” DREAM Act, sponsored by Democratic Representative Roybal-Allard of California, could easily get to 218, if the Democrats all hold together and the RINOs defect.

Likewise, Denham’s DREAM Act, plus a border security study, could give the RINOs the fig leaf they need to vote for amnesty and pull-in some Democrats.

But the real plan is for Speaker Ryan to put his amnesty bill up and arm-twist Republicans into passing it.

Ryan has made known his desire for an amnesty bill for many years, and back in April of 2013 ABC News ran a lengthy article about Paul Ryan’s support for “comprehensive immigration reform,” saying:

The Wisconsin Republican [Ryan] made a joint appearance on Monday with Democratic Rep. Luis Gutiérrez in the latter's home city of Chicago, where he embraced comprehensive immigration reform. Rather than use the Boston attacks to call for delaying the issue, he said they should serve as a wake-up call to get a bill passed.

"We have a broken immigration system and, if anything, what we see in Boston is that we have to fix and modernize our immigration system for lots of reasons," Ryan said, according to Politico. "National security reasons, economic security reasons. For all those reasons we need to fix our broken immigration system…"

While Ryan's activity might seem out of step with his usual focus on budgetary issues, it's not new, according to Gutiérrez. The Illinois Democrat said that 10 years ago, Ryan played a role in a previous effort to draft an immigration bill in the House... During his whirlwind tour of Chicago, Ryan spoke about the economic benefits that immigration reform could bring to the U.S.

This is the same Luis Gutierrez who back in 2009 introduced the “Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America's Security and Prosperity Act” to grant amnesty to illegal aliens and who once wrote an op-ed in the liberal Huffington Post to complain that Obama’s immigration enforcement policies were too strict.

When Paul Ryan’s 2016 primary opponent made the Speaker’s support for expanding immigration and amnesty for illegal aliens issues in the campaign Ryan blanketed the district with mailers touting his opposition to both – a claim that was demonstrably false given Ryan’s record and his statements during his lovefest with illegal alien advocate Illinois Congressman Luis Gutiérrez.

It’s pretty clear to us that Paul Ryan’s position on amnesty for illegal aliens hasn’t changed, and it is the exact opposite of that shared by the conservative – populist coalition that elected Donald Trump and will have to turn out and vote Republican if the GOP is to hang on to its congressional majorities.

Those of us who have been around Washington long enough to remember the smirk on Democratic Sen. George Mitchell's face when he left the "negotiation" with Republicans that saw President George H.W. Bush go back on his "read my lips, no new taxes" pledge are waiting for the video of Gutierrez with that same smirk as he leaves the meeting where House Republican "leaders" cave on amnesty.

Here is the list of the Republican cosponsors of Denham’s “Queen of the Hill” resolution. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative today to urge them to not to sign on to H.Res. 774 and to oppose any bill that grants amnesty to illegal aliens. If your Representative is on this list, please call him or her and demand that they withdraw their name from this bill at once.
