    Cornyn: No DACA Amnesty for Illegals This Christmas

    Cornyn: No DACA Amnesty for Illegals This Christmas

    Senate GOP whip John Cornyn told reporters on Monday that an amnesty for younger illegals won’t be debated in the Senate this month, but will be considered in January.

    According to Reuters:

    The U.S. Senate will not consider an immigration bill as part of year-end legislation but will turn to a measure protecting immigrant youths known as “Dreamers” in January, No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn said on Monday …

    “The president has given us enough time to deal with this before March and so I think that’s plenty of time and I expect us to meet it,” Cornyn told reporters, adding, “If we can’t, then the president could extend the deadline if he chose to do so. But this is something we’re going to turn to, I’m sure, in January.”

    The statement comes after Democratic leaders tried to intimidate GOP leaders with an unpopular and unlikely threat to block a government budget bill if the GOP did not agree to a no-strings amnesty for 3.24 million illegals.

    Since then, two groups of Senators have prepared proposed amnesty packages for possible debate in the new year, despite the public’s deep opposition to cheap-labor amnesties.

    One GOP group is led by GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley. Their plan would offer work-permits to illegals in exchange for sharp cuts in legal immigration by ending the chain-migration and visa lottery programs. Cornyn is part of this group but has suggested the chain-migration e gradually phased out, spurring suspicion among pro-American activists that Cornyn does not want to lower the huge annual inflow of unskilled, low-wage migrants.

    The second group is led by Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin. He is offering GOP Senators token border-security measures in exchange for the amnesty of the 3 million ‘dreamer’ illegals, plus future migration of their chain-migration relatives. Four GOP Senators are cooperating with Durbin. They are Sens. Lindsey Graham, Oklahoma’s James Lankford, Colorado’s Cory Gardner, retiring Arizona Jeff Flake.

    Lankford has said illegal immigrants benefit the economy.

    North Carolina’s Sen. Thom Tillis is working with both groups.

    Many polls show that the Democrats’ calls for amnesty are unpopular because they contradict Americans’ sense of fairness to other Americans.

    Business groups and Democrats embrace the misleading, industry-funded “nation of immigrants” polls which pressure Americans to say they welcome migrants. The alternative “fairness” polls show that voters put a much higher priority on helping their families, neighbors, and fellow nationals get decent jobs in a high-tech, high-immigration, low-wage economy.

    The political power of the voters’ fairness priorities was made clear during the GOP primaries and again in November 2016. This year, groups such as FAIR and Americans for Legal Immigration PAC have deterred many business-first GOP politicians from openly supporting an amnesty.

    Multiple polls show the public is strongly opposed to the Democrats’ threat to shut down the government if they do not get their DREAM Act amnesty by Christmas for 3 million illegals.
    But Democrats are under growing pressure from illegal immigrants and from progressives to revive the amnesty-or-shutdown threat, despite the DREAM Act’s ten-year cost of $26 billion. The illegals have started using a #NoDreamNoDeal hashtag to demand a shutdown or an amnesty.

    Each year, four million Americans turn 18 and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.

    But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting one million new legal immigrants, by providing almost two million work-permits to foreigners, by providing work-visas to roughly 500,000 temporary workers, and doing little to block the employment of roughly eight million illegal immigrants.

    The Washington-imposed economic policy of mass-immigration floods the market with foreign labor and spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also encourages discrimination against American workers, drives up real estate prices, widens wealth gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, and hurts kids’ schools and college education. Furthermore, it pushes Americans away from high-tech careers and reduces the work activity rate below the rate in foreign rivals, which sidelines millions of marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

    They just disgust me so much. They're exhibitionist whiners. I hope and pray our dear President sees them for what they really are, the future destruction of our country. The more you see of them, the more you know we're right about them.

    I find it very concerning that there is still talk floating around about extending the March deadline. There should have never been a deadline. The program should have ended immediately. If Trump would have ended the program immediately after taking office as promised we wouldn't be having this conversation right now.

    It would be a real bummer if we were to fight the Congress off until March to then have Trump turn around and extend DACA again!
