According to a report by immigration hawk Daniel Horowitz, a handful of GOP Senators are scheming to push forward a mass amnesty bill for illegal aliens.
“Two GOP staffers have informed me that Sen. [Thom] Tillis, along with Sens. James Lankford (R-Okla.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), began working this Wednesday on an effort to get Trump’s support for a mass amnesty bill that passed the House last year,” Horowitz said on his blog Conservative Review.
Tillis is a supposed Republican Senator from North Carolina who recently came out in favor of so-called “Red Flag Laws,” which would allow authorities to confiscate weapons from citizens without being accused of a crime.
Now, he’s apparently looking to backstab conservatives — or at least the conservative wing of the conservative party — by granting illegal aliens citizenship.
Rosemary Jenks, government relations director of Numbers USA, which is opposing the bill, confirmed to me that those are the three leaders of the potential bill in the Senate. Conservative HQ, a publication run by legendary conservative Richard Viguerie, reports that Tillis is expected to be the lead Senate sponsor and that Vice President Pence’s PAC is rumored to be supporting this bill. I’ve heard the same from my sources in the Senate as well.
Graham is another “Republican” known for tightroping the line between right and left. He too has announced support for “Red Flag Laws.”
The bill that the pair of unreliable Senators are looking to advance is the Farm Workforce Modernization Act, passed by the Democrat-led U.S. House of Representatives in December.
That piece of legislation, along with granting unlimited future agricultural worker visas to foreigners, provides amnesty to any alien living in the United States who claims to have at least worked part-time in the agricultural industry.
In other words, any foreign worker who has ever picked a vegetable on a farm would be eligible to become a U.S. citizen. It would be the largest mass amnesty — by far — in American history.
President Ronald Reagan’s 1986 amnesty, passed by Congress, granted 2.7 million foreigners citizenship. In exchange for playing along, American voters were promised border security, and that there would never be another amnesty.
Neither President Donald J. Trump nor his administration have commented on the bill.
