    Ted Poe (R-TX) US Congress Voted for Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

    Ted Poe (R-TX) US Congress Voted for Amnesty for illegal aliens

    Ted Poe added to ALIPAC's amnesty supporter list October 2, 2014


    Ted Poe Amnesty Support Summary

    On April 11, 2013 Fox News Latino reported (click for article) that Ted Poe had unveiled support for amnesty for illegal aliens despite his former image as an American defender.

    U.S. Rep. Ted Poe, who is vice chairman of the House immigration subcommittee, said that like many of his conservative colleagues, he used to be loath to even discuss other aspects of immigration reform until the border was absolutely secure.

    But that, said Poe in an interview with Fox News Latino, is both unrealistic and counterproductive.

    “I’ve changed,” said Poe, who was first elected to Congress in 2004. “I used to think we had to do border security before we ever talk about other immigration issues. But we have to do them in tandem, because [otherwise] we’ll never get to those other issues. The border is really not secure because of the drug cartels.”


    Now, Poe not only will discuss other immigration issues, but is going head-on against many of his fellow conservatives in his decision to support a path to legal status for the more than 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country.
    Representative Ted Poe also actually voted for amnesty for illegal aliens when casting a YEA vote for H.R. 15, the "Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act" in the 2013-2014 Congress. This makes Rep. Ted Poe one of the very few Republicans who voted with more than 200 Democrats in support of this Obama backed illegal immigrant amnesty legislation push!

    This bill is what is called a Discharge Petition where the Democrats in the US Congress were seeking enough signatures to force the Senate's illegal alien amnesty bill S. 744 to a vote on the House floor. The Democrats had hoped that at least 20 of the Republicans who also support Obama's amnesty would sign the discharge petition to bring amnesty to a vote and pass it.

    Thanks to hard working American activists and over 100 conservative Republicans in Congress who oppose amnesty for illegal aliens, the bill failed to make it to Obama's desk!

    If Representative Ted Poe 's vote for HR 15 had succeeded and S. 744 had passed the House, it would have granted amnesty and citizenship to tens of millions of illegal aliens.

    The resulting new voting bloc of illegal aliens would then dominate US elections, turning almost all states solid Democrat blue for decades to come while simultaneously ending any campaign or any candidate who would stand up for securing America's borders or preserving our Republic or our Constitution!

    Many more Americans would die or lose their jobs and communities along with countless taxpayer monies due to unending future waves of tens of millions of illegals from around the world pouring in as a reaction to our borders, republic, Constitution, elections, and existing immigration laws being permanently undermined by mass "immigration reform" amnesty for illegal immigrants!
