All hell is about to break loose in the Republican Party.
The party’s voters are about to experience one of the biggest betrayals ever.
It’s all because Republicans are about to cut one backroom deal to keep Chuck Schumer in power.
Poll after poll shows the American people disapprove of Joe Biden creating a crisis by throwing open the border and creating magnets which attracted a historic surge of illegal aliens pouring into the country.
Joe Biden’s disastrous open borders policies and rhetoric hand Republicans a line of attack on a silver platter that the GOP could ride to victory and majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives next November.
Instead, Senate Republicans are plotting behind closed doors to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens which will then generate a new wave of migration across the southern border.
- Attendees included Cornyn and Durbin, as well as Sens. Chris Coons (D-Del.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Alex Padilla (D-Calif.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
- Sens. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) called in.
- The biggest areas of consensus were protections for so-called Dreamers and preserving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), according to a source familiar with the discussion.
Texas Republican and open borders fanatic John Cornyn showed he completely missed the message of Donald Trump’s rise and told Axios that granting amnesty to around 3.5 million children of illegal aliens could serve as the stepping stone to granting citizenship and voting rights to tens of millions of illegal aliens.
“I was making the argument, and I think people generally understand, that we’re not going to do comprehensive immigration reform on this,” Cornyn stated.
“We do incremental a lot better,” Cornyn added. “Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of trust. But I think if we did something that is pretty much consensus, like DACA, then that would be confidence-building, and then we’d kind of move on to the next.”
Pro-amnesty Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin concurred that Republicans and Democrats could come together to pass the biggest amnesty bill that they could agree on.
“I think we agree on a bipartisan basis that we’ve got to reform the system, as far as we can take it,” Durbin added.
Midterm elections are base turnout contests.
Parties don’t try to persuade voters so much as rally their rank and file to turn out.
Historically the party out of power performs better in midterm elections because their voters are angrier about the results of the last election as well as the policies the incumbent president pursued.
Senate Republicans—led by John Cornyn—want to throw away that historical advantage by cutting a deal on amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
Polls show illegal immigration is at the very top of the list of issues for Republican voters.
If Republicans collude with Democrats on a mass amnesty scheme it will likely depress their vote as GOP voters won’t show up and vote for a party that serves to advance the Democrats’ agenda and Chuck Schumer’s chances of hanging on to his post as Senate Majority Leader increase.
