House Speaker Paul Ryan is determined to ram amnesty into law.
The pro-open borders Speaker is setting up a trap for President Trump.
And Ryan’s betrayal is even worse than anyone thought.
Ryan is pushing a “compromise” piece of legislation that would grant amnesty to 1.8 million illegal aliens.
That is nearly three times greater than the “DACA” population who have been granted work permits under the illegal executive amnesty started by Obama and ended by Donald Trump last September.
Chris Crane – President of the National ICE Council – warned President Trump that Ryan’s amnesty bill was an attempt by pro-amnesty politicians to betray Trump’s campaign promises.
Crane stated that the bill would allow thousands of illegal aliens to avoid their deportation orders and instead gain amnesty.
In addition, Crane informed the President that the bill – like the ‘gang of eight’ amnesty bill of 2013 – omitted hiring additional law enforcement officers:
“After spending years fighting for staffing increases at ICE in the name of public safety, House Republicans have suddenly abandoned their positions and instead now fight to keep ICE dangerously understaffed.”
“In keeping with the infamous ‘Gang of 8’ amnesty bill, boots on the ground law enforcement officers were excluded by Republicans from having input on both new bills. The same House Republicans who condemned the Gang of 8 and Obama administration for not including out input, have now done the exact same thing.”
This would break Trump’s pledge of a 10,000 officer strong deportation force.
Ryan is desperate to hold a vote on amnesty legislation for two reasons.
First, Ryan is under tremendous pressure from big money donors to provide a supply of cheap labor.
Second, Ryan wants a “legacy” achievement before he leaves Congress when his term is up in January.
Ryan has always been the avatar in Congress for the establishment’s globalist, pro-amnesty wing of the Republican Party.
But the Ryan amnesty plan also runs the risk of depressing GOP turnout for the November midterm elections.
Trump retains the loyalty of his base because every other Republican has sold out the party base on the defining issue of amnesty for illegal aliens.
Republicans like Ryan run the same con every election season.
Before November they talk tough about securing the borders, but once all the votes are counted, they immediately try to figure out how to grant illegal aliens amnesty and flood America with foreign labor to drive down the wages of American workers.
Trump promised to be different.
And so far, he has kept his word about enforcing immigration laws and securing the border.
But now Paul Ryan is plotting to undercut his message.
Ryan’s risky move to pay off the donors and earn fluff headlines from pro-illegal alien journalists threatens not only the GOP majority, but Trump’s entire Presidency.
If the Democrats win one – or both – houses of Congress, they will launch impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
Ryan’s amnesty plan is a disaster on every front – policy, political, and moral.
