(National Sentinel)Â Turncoat: We did have an election in 2016, right? The nominee who pledged to defend our borders, enforce all immigration laws, repeal DACA and build a border wall was the candidate who won — right?
Right! So why is Lame Duck Speaker Paul Ryan agreeing to allowÂ two immigration legalization bills on the House floor next week?
He’s leaving Congress — is his indebtedness to corporate donorsÂ so great that he feels compelled to grant them one last wish, which just happens to be on Democrats’ wish list too, before he leaves?
Or is he set toÂ go to work for one of them after he turns in his gavel?
As reported byÂ The Washington Times:
House Republicans have reached a deal to vote on two immigration bills next week, SpeakerÂ Paul D. Ryanâ€™s office said Tuesday, setting the stage for a high-stakes floor showdown over the fate of millions of illegal immigrants.
House Republicans will hash out the options at a closed-door meeting Wednesday morning, said AshLee Strong,Â Mr. Ryanâ€™s spokeswoman.
The mere act of scheduling votes is symbolically huge. It will be the first time since Republicans retook control of the chamber in 2010 that they have put a major legalization bill on the floor.
But the fact that two bills will be put on the floor suggests there is still no unanimity within the party on how far to go on legalization of â€œDreamers,â€ nor on how to stiffen border security and interior enforcement to prevent another wave of unauthorized migration.
The Times goes onto report that by agreeing to the votes, Ryan diffused “a petition drive backed by rebel Republicans and Democrats that had threatened to sideline Republican leaders and turn control of the issue over to the minority.”
We’ll see. But POTUS Trump andÂ most Republicans campaigned on ridding our country of illegal alien criminals and ensuring that everyone else who we allow in comes through the doorÂ legally.
Why, then, are they voting on bills that would, in part, grantÂ amnestyÂ to lawbreakers?
