Rep. Dave Brat Betrays Supporters On Immigration, Pushes Amnesty Like Eric Cantor

The ascension of Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) was seen as one of the biggest victories of the tea party era. With zero name recognition and little money, Brat defeated establishment favorite Rep. Eric Cantor largely on the immigration issue. A little over three years later, Brat is already caving on amnesty. Brat is working alongside the Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) to devise a plan that would keep DACA in place and provide anmesty for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. Brat and McCaul believe that eliminating the diversity visa lottery, enacting a mandatory e-verify… Keep Reading

Senior Advisor to the President Stephen Miller has outlined the administration’s preconditions for any deal regarding minors affected by Trump’s decision to rescind DACA, according to a report by McClatchy. Miller called for switching to a merit-based immigration system, eliminating protections for unaccompanied illegal alien children, increasing the numbers of immigration enforcement officials, raising visa fees, and implementing e-verify, in a document which endorses most of the core tenets of the RAISE Act, which is also backed by the administration.

Rep. Steve King Threatens Trump With Lawsuit Over Amnesty Flip-Flop

President Trump is wavering on many key campaign promises, including his call to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that permits illegal immigrants who have been in America since they were children to stay in the country without prosecution. This is not acceptable for Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who says that a lawsuit may be in order if Trump refuses to enforce immigration laws. “Is [Trump] going to force us to go back to court again?” King asked in an interview with the Daily Caller. King went on to say, “It is impossible to return the respect… Keep Reading

The Problem With Amnesty, Isn’t Amnesty

A couple weeks ago, President Obama announced that he would disregard the Constitutional process and grant executive amnesty to over five million illegal immigrants living in the states, surprising exactly no one. Equally predictable was the conservative uproar, and the ensuing accusations of racism from the Left. Much of the conservative reaction rightly centered on President Obama’s executive end-around on Congress, but the back and forth of “you’re buying votes with American jobs!” and “you’re a racist!” are again saturating politics the way Kirk Cameron saturates Christian filmmaking. Unfortunately, the bottom line of the immigration problem is often lost behind… Keep Reading
