We are proud to have been the first major comprehensive conservative organization to formulate a cogent immigration policy and lead the fight against reckless amnesty from day one. When we began the fight, very few conservatives on and off the Hill were willing to publicly oppose Obama’s immigration policy, as many of them were intimidated by the phony electoral prognosis propagated by GOP consultants.
Now, several months later, the tide is turning, and it is turning rapidly. The base is on fire, and very few Republicans want to be associated with Rubio and his silly gang. Honestly, I didn’t think we were able to defeat this bill in the Senate, and have been focusing much of our efforts on the House side. But is appears that we are well within striking distance of defeating this bill. Here are the people who need to hear from you.
The four GOP gang members – McCain, Graham, Flake, Rubio – along with Ayotte, Heller, Collins, and Murkowski, are probably a lost cause. However, there are also enough red state Democrats who are jittery about supporting this bill to deny Schumer 60 votes, and certainly a super-majority. Yet, two insipid RINOs, Bob Corker and John Hoeven, who represent solid red states, are attempting to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. They are working tirelessly with Schumer to craft a phony compromise that will add some window dressing for border security after all of the illegals are granted amnesty. They can potentially bring along with them a dozen more Republicans who badly want this bill.
