    Senate Republicans looking to repeat 1986 amnesty, seeking President Trump’s support:

    Horowitz: Senate Republicans looking to repeat 1986 amnesty, seeking President Trump’s support: Sources


    February 17, 2020

    Daniel Horowitz



    Senator Thom Tillis and other liberal Republicans are hell-bent on turning our rural communities into pipelines for cartel drug trafficking and criminal aliens. Rather than holding vote after vote on ridding our communities of sanctuary cities and dangerous criminal alien gangs and drug traffickers, liberal Republicans like Thom Tillis are working on, amazingly, more amnesty for illegal aliens. The North Carolina senator evidently doesn’t think that the Tar Heel State is turning blue like Virginia as quickly as he would like. He also believes that now that he lied about being tough on illegal immigration in order get Trump’s endorsement and scare away a primary challenger, he can go back to screwing his voters.

    Two GOP staffers have informed me that Sen. 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. 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, reportsthat 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.


    Tillis has already publicly praised the bill, and according to my sources, has met with Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, along with several other GOP senators, to plan support for the bill. Notably, nobody from the DHS was present at the meeting to offer the border security perspective on the bill.

    On December 11, House Democrats passed the Orwellian-named Farm Workforce Modernization Act (H.R. 5038). In plain English, it grants amnesty to every illegal alien in this country who claims to have worked at least part-time for agriculture and creates an unlimited agriculture guest worker program for the future to bring in millions of low-skilled workers. The cultural and fiscal costs are never factored in. It permanently tethers green cards for people coming in on these H-2 visas to the condition of working in agriculture for 10 years, creating an indentured servant model that, as Mark Krikorian observes, will prevent farms from ever modernizing and mechanizing their process because of the boundless flow of cheap labor.

    What is so offensive about this bill is that the very reason these people are in the country to begin with is because we were lied to, including by some of the very same members of Congress who were there in 1986. Back then, they gave amnesty to 2.7 million illegal aliens, including 1.1 million who worked in agriculture, on the promise that future illegal immigration would be choked off by prohibiting illegal alien work in America. They pocketed the amnesty and then turned around and downright blocked enforcement of any of the laws and today are openly criminalizing enforcement in sanctuary states while encouraging illegal alien employment.


    One would think that even Democrats, and certainly Republicans, wouldn’t have the chutzpah to show their faces before implementing our side of the deal from the last broken promise. Yet as if we are Charlie Brown with the football, they come with the same amnesty bill designed to reap the rewards of their insidious disobedience against the terms of the first amnesty.


    In December, 34 Republicans supported that bill in the House, along with all but three Democrats. Undoubtedly, many more agree with the idea but were inclined to vote no as a minority party.


    Curiously, the White House has been silent. Typically, such a transformative and consequential bill that passes the House would be met by what’s known as a Statement of Administrative Policy (SAP), expressing the president’s support or threat to veto. One would think Trump would veto an amnesty in a heartbeat, right? This bill was sponsored by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), one of the House impeachment managers!


    Well, if conservatives remain silent, that might not be the case. We already know that the president has permanently retreated from cutting the numbers of legal immigrants and from mandatory E-Verify, which was taken out of this year’s budget proposal. As with many issues, there are clearly competing voices within the administration, and if conservatives don’t get to the president first, the swamp will.


    Remember when Thom Tillis suddenly got religion and introduced a bill to allow victims of criminal aliens to sue sanctuary cities? Although that bill was flawed, the idea behind it was good. The reason he introduced it was because he had a primary challenger with money. The minute Tillis secured Trump’s endorsement as being “tough on the border,” he had no need to push that bill any more, which is why you don’t see it coming up for a vote. Instead, it’s back to amnesty. The same dynamic played out with Lindsey Graham, who avoided a serious primary challenge by getting tough on illegal immigration for a few months.


    How many more times will we be fooled?


    The push by a North Carolina senator is especially jarring. I’ve reported on numerous cases of illegal alien sex offenders in North Carolina. According to the Epoch Times, one citizen in North Carolina collated criminal data from just 30 percent of North Carolina counties and found that in just the past 18 months, “more than 331 illegal aliens have been charged with 1,172 child rapes and child sexual assaults.”


    Jobs in agriculture are the very magnet that was supposed to be shut off in exchange for the last amnesty. Why won’t Tillis ever consider the cultural, drug trafficking, and other criminal problems alongside the quest for cheaper labor? Why such a narrow focus?


    The lesson for conservatives is we need to get to Trump before the swamp does. Otherwise, what is waiting for us on the other side of a victorious November election won’t be very victorious for the people who most ardently support the president.

    Trump supports undocumented US illegal immigrant amnesty!

    Tue,
    2016-02-16 02:28 PM
    Written by: Daniel Waldron and Sanwar Ali


    Donald Trump is in favor of granting amnesty to the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US, according to an opinion piece published on Newsweek online.

    The frontrunner for the Republican Presidential candidacy has always promised to create a 'deportation force' to extradite every last one of the 11 million undocumented migrants. However, apparently, under his US immigration plan Trump would 'move em back.'

    Supporters of the real estate tycoon have given their backing for his plans to tackle illegal immigration in the US. Yet, they appear to have overlooked Trump's other promise that those deported will be allowed to return. Barring those with criminal records, nearly all of the 11 million illegal foreign nationals will have the opportunity to return and apply for some form of legal immigrant status to remain in the US.

    Trump's Pro-Illegal Immigrant Amnesty Policies

    Trump's support for an undocumented migrant amnesty is a far cry from his usual US immigration rhetoric. Much of his Presidential campaign has been spent vilifying immigrants, especially Mexicans - who he branded as 'rapists' – and Muslims, who he wants to ban from entering the US.

    However, Donald Trump's son, Eric, has grown increasingly frustrated with how the media – particularly the Fox News Network – vilifies his father. During an interview with Fox News on November 12, 2015, Eric Trump tried to clarify his father's stance concerning the deportation of illegal immigrants.

    Eric Trump said: "The point isn't just deporting them, it's deporting them and letting them back in legally. He's been so clear about that and I know the liberal media wants to misconstrue it, but it is deporting them and letting them back legally."

    It appears that Eric Trump is correct in his assessment of his father's comments. Going back to a CNN interview with Dana Brash in July 2015, Trump outlined his plans like this:"I would get people out and then have an expedited way of getting them back into the country so they can be legal….

    A lot of these people are helping us … and sometimes it's jobs a citizen of the United States doesn't want to do. I want to move 'em out, and we're going to move 'em back in and let them be legal."

    Trump's 'Touchback' Immigration Policy to allow immigrants to return

    What Donald Trump is proposing is known as the 'touchback' policy, but it's not a new concept. The policy was actually put forward by Kay Bailey Hutchison, a moderate Republican Senator (Texas). The 'touchback' policy was proposed as an amendment on the Senate floor in 2007 and would require illegal immigrants to return to their home nations in order to apply for a special 'Z visa'.


    The 'Z visa' would permit those illegal immigrants – who left the US – to return to the country at an accelerated rate. This would allow entry faster than would usually be the case when applying for an US immigrant visa, and would enable the now lawful immigrant to continue to work in the US for any employer. However, the amendment was never passed, losing by a small margin, 53 – 45.

    The policy was supported by the majority of Republicans, even gaining five votes from the Democratic Party with senators Claire McCaskill, Max Baucus, Jon Tester, Byron Dorgan and John Rockefeller all voting in favor.

    Trump's plan endorsed by the New York Times

    The policy was considered so good that even The New York Times endorsed it. In an editorial titled 'Progress on Immigration,' The New York Times stated: "It's not ideal, but if a touchback provision is manageable and reassures people that illegal immigrants are indeed going to the back of the line, then it will be defensible."

    In effect, Trump is proposing something similar (actually it seems a more generous immigration policy) as part of his US immigration policy - sending illegal immigrants back to their home countries and then allowing those without criminal records to return quickly to the US - an idea endorsed by The New York Times. The idea has even been backed by illegal immigrants.

    The first ever telephone poll of illegal immigrants - carried out by The Los Angeles Times in 2007 – asked if they would return to their home countries under a 'touchback' law that would allow them to return with legal status. 63 per cent said they would, 27 per cent said they would refuse, while 10 per cent were undecided. When offered a route to US citizenship, the number who said they would leave and return legally increased to 85 per cent.

    Illegal immigrants support touchback policy

    The vast majority of illegal immigrants have said they would voluntarily comply with what Trump is proposing, therefore removing the need for a deportation force, which, anyway, already exists in the form of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

    However, Trump's plan remains controversial, after all, the touchback policy would see those illegal immigrants who leave and return fast-tracked back into the country ahead of those who have actually complied with US immigration laws.

    An editorial piece published in National Review back in 2007 actually draws attention to this. The publication labelled touchback 'a fraud that gives illegal aliens their own privileged pathway ahead of applicants who have complied with US immigration laws.'

    Essentially, what this means is that for all Trump's anti undocumented immigrant rhetoric, he might actually want to grant amnesty to nearly all of the millions of illegal immigrants currently residing in the country.

    Many people will surely think this is bizarre in view of his, apparently hard-line anti-Hispanic immigrant views. However, it is also widely believed that Trump needs illegal immigrants to work at Trump construction sites.
