    Raul Labrador: Majority Leader McCarthy’s Future Depends on Amnesty Fight

    Raul Labrador: Majority Leader McCarthy’s Future Depends on Amnesty Fight

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy won’t disappoint Republican voters during the argument over immigration policy and amnesty for illegals, said Rep. Raul Labrador, one of four GOP co-authors of a major immigration and amnesty policy bill.

    “I think he will be strong on this,” Labrador told Breitbart News. Labrador continued:

    I think he likes our bill. I don’t know if he’s going to champion it, but he also has a future that he needs to think about. He needs to decide whether he will stand with the American people or not and I think he will …


    I think it is imperative that we stand strong on this issue. Right now the Democratic base is energized and if you want to energize the Republican base, the best thing you can do is keep your promises [to voters]. The worst thing you can do in 2018 is cave to Democrats on immigration because the base will not show up, so the Democrats will then take over the House and the Senate.


    The issue is a test for McCarthy’s leadership, Labrador said:


    The [2018] national campaign for both the House and the Senate needs to be that the Republicans understand the importance of security at the border and security at home, and the Democrats are willing … to protect an illegal population. I just don’t see how that is a winning formula.


    Labrador is elected from Idaho and will leave the House this year to run for governor. He chairs the judiciary committee’s panel on immigration and border security, and he co-authored the GOP’s “Securing America’s Future Act” immigration-and-amnesty bill.


    McCarthy’s growing role has been a pleasant surprise for immigration reformers who are already worried about the prominent role in the amnesty dispute being played by GOP Sen. John Cornyn.


    Cornyn and McCarthy are the two GOP leaders who have been planning negotiations on amnesty with top Democrats, Sen. Dick Durbin and Rep. Steny Hoyer. The pair of Coryn and McCarthy has overshadowed the role played by leading GOP immigration experts, including Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who chair the Senate and House judiciary committees.

    McCarthy represents an agricultural district where there is intense business pressure for imported cheap labor, despite the growing variety of labor-saving agricultural machinery. He is based in California, where massive legal and illegal immigration has also allowed Democrats to grab complete domination of state politics — and the ability every ten years to reshape political districts to their advantage. Both those political factors pressure McCarthy away from embracing the populist demand for a low-immigration/high-wage national economic policy.


    But McCarthy stunned immigration reformers at the January 9 White House meeting when Democratic Sen. Diane Feinstein asked Trump to endorse a quick, no-strings ‘DACA’ amnesty while postponing border security measures to a subsequent debate. McCarthy intervened, saying:
    Let’s be honest. Security was voted on just a few years ago, and, no disrespect, there’s people in the room on the other side of the aisle who voted for it. If I recall, Senator [Hillary] Clinton voted for it. So I don’t think that’s comprehensive; I think that’s dealing with DACA at the same time. I think that’s really what the President is making. It’s kind of like three pillars: DACA, because we’re all in the room want to do it; border security, so we’re not back out here; and chain migration. It’s just three items … And the [visa] lottery.

    “That blew me away,” said Rosemary Jenks, director of government relations at NumbersUSA.com.
    “I was impressed,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies. “It led me to hope that Republicans had come to an agreement among themselves for what have to be the minimum requirements for a deal to give the DACAs amnesty,” Vaughan said.


    McCarthy also attended the January 12 White House meeting when Trump forcefully rejected the amnesty-plus deal offered by Durbin and GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham. The deal offered amnesty to a population of up to 3.25 million young illegals plus the parents who brought the young illegals into the United States, without offering any significant reform of chain-migration rules and the visa lottery.

    “At the meeting yesterday when he saw what the proposal from the Senate was I think that only helps him to understand what happens in these negotiations,” said Labrador. He continued:

    What happens in these negotiations is that Democratic senators and moderate Republicans get together and they think they can do some weak bill … [but] that is just not going to fly in the Republican House.

    McCarthy also understands that the GOP caucus in the House chooses its leadership based on their ability to handle the immigration issue, said Labrador.

    The reality is that McCarthy — just like [House Speaker] Paul Ryan — understands the volatility of the issue. Remember, this was one of the issues that brought down [House Speaker] John Boehner … Boehner started moving further and further to the left on immigration and that is when people started realizing it was time for a change of leadership. So I’m very optimistic that Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy know that this is an issue that could do them in.

    Polls show that Trump’s American-first immigration policy is very popular. For example, a December poll of likely 2018 voters shows two-to-one voter support for Trump’s pro-American immigration policies, and a lopsided four-to-one opposition against the cheap-labor, mass-immigration, economic policy pushed by bipartisan establishment-backed D.C. interest-groups.

    Business groups and Democrats tout the misleading, industry-funded “Nation of Immigrants” polls which pressure Americans to say they welcome migrants, including the roughly 670,000 ‘DACA’ illegals and the roughly 3.25 million ‘dreamer’ illegals.

    The alternative “priority or fairness” polls — plus the 2016 election — show that voters in the polling booth 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.

    Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.
    But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting 1 million new legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.

    The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration floods the market with foreign labor, spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

    The cheap-labor policy has also reduced investment and job creation in many interior states because the coastal cities have a surplus of imported labor. For example, almost 27 percent of zip codes in Missouri had fewer jobs or businesses in 2015 than in 2000, according to a new report by the Economic Innovation Group. In Kansas, almost 29 percent of zip codes had fewer jobs and businesses in 2015 compared to 2000, which was a two-decade period of massive cheap-labor immigration.


    Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a large percentage of the nation’s annual income has shifted to investors and away from employees.

    Not all ILLEGAL aliens are picking lettuce!

    They are taking jobs from American's in many other industries!

    Farmers can automate and update their equipment...they can take advantage of the new Tax Plan.



    AMERICAN CITIZENS AND TAXPAYERS ARE SICK AND TIRED OF SUBSIDIZING THESE COMPANIES CHEAP LABOR! THESE COMPANIES DO NOT FOOT THE BILL...THE TAXPAYERS DO!

    WE HAVE TO FOOT THE BILL FOR THEIR ANHCOR RATS, THEIR HEALTHCARE, THEIR SCHOOL, THEIR WELFARE & FOOD STAMPS, THEIR DISEASES, THE OVERCROWED SCHOOLS, THE CRIME, DUI, RAPE, THEFT! THEY COME IN AND DESTROY NEIGHBORHOODS AND LOWER PROPERTY VALUES FORCING OTHERS TO MOVE OUT!

    WE WANT THEM ALL DEPORTED!

    NO DACA DEAL...NO AMNESTY AND NO PATH TO STAY

    WE WANT THIS STOPPED NOW! EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY!

    NOW THESE UNGRATEFUL PARASITES ARE PROTESTING, MARCHING IN OUR STREETS, WAVING THEIR FLAG AND GIVING US THE FINGER!

    YOU PEOPLE IN D.C. HAD BETTER VOTE TO EXPEDITE DEPORTATIONS AND SLAM THE BORDER SHUT!

    THESE PEOPLE DO NOT REPRESENT "WHO WE ARE" AS AMERICANS!

    I like his statements, but he needs to re-read the Tea Leaves. DACA BLACKMAIL AMNESTY is over because Americans don't want amnesty for DACAs or anyone else. Furthermore, amnesty is unconstitutional, it's illegal in the US, unless you first repeal the laws you claim they broke. Amnesty for illegal aliens who violated existing, continuing US Immigration Law violates 3 clauses of the US Constitution, equal protection clause, uniform naturalization clause and ex post facto clause. No President can do it, no Congress can do it, and no Court can do it.

    Wake Up. Get Smart. Grow a Pair and JUST SAY NO.

    Yes, the DACA story is sympathetic, but there's absolutely nothing you can do about it, except deport them and wait for 10 years to apply for re-entry legally. That is the law. They are not special and they are not above the law. There is no exception for them in our Constitution or our Laws, quite the opposite.

    DACAs are not our problem, because they are not our responsibility.

    We don't them in our work places, our schools, our colleges, our hospitals, our government or anywhere else in the United States. We don't want them on welfare or Medicaid or breeding on our soil. We want them gone, sent back to their home countries, where they can get in line with everyone else.

    Kevin McCarthy's attitude towards illegal immigration is changing, but I do not think the media is ready to tell the truth as to why. There is a battle going on in California, especially in Northern California and the Central Valley. A large grassroots movement with Republicans, Democrats and Hispanic Americans banding together to take back our state. Our liberal governor and administration can get all the media attention and declare they are speaking for all Californians, but they are not. Just as there are true patriots that love our country and put America first, there are Californians that love our state and remember our once great state.

    We started petitions and flooding the DOJ and Trump with letters and phone calls asking for help. When Thomas Homen gave his press conference it was as if he was speaking directly to us. For the first time many of us felt that someone had heard our pleas and we had hope.

    I have watched and been involved with groups that are fighting to save California. The left know we have been following every corrupt move they make. We are following the money that keeps disappearing. How many times have we heard fellow Californians question laws voted on? How many times have we heard Californians say that is not what I voted for. How many times has bills been passed on Friday nights?

    Long before the race for 2018, we found only one republican that was there fighting for us. One republican that was challenging them and taking them to court.
    We asked him to run for governor, because we knew his track record. We went after Republican Heath Flora for making a deal on the gas tax hike. Jeff Denham is worried about holding onto his seat, because of his stance on illegal immigration.

    We have vetted everyone running for office and posted the facts to all of our groups. We are well aware that the only chance we have is to have one candidate running for governor. We are aware that John Cox a millionaire tried to buy an office in Chicago. Is getting money from George Soros groups. We have now seen a previous California politician throw his hat in the ring (a rhino friend of the liberals). The left will throw money or do anything to divide our votes. Remember the top two winners of the primary regardless of party will run in the election and there is no write in. As it stands now Gavin Newsom and Antonio Villaraigosa are leading with Republican Travis Allen only 1% behind.

    If the RNC wants California to go red, they need to get behind the grassroots movement in California. They need to put their money and capital behind us. We are fighting against the media and big money. We keep being told that we can't do it, that California is lost. We are fighting hard and our numbers are growing. We have the attention of the left and they are playing dirty.

    Instead of our fellow Americans slamming all of California they need to get behind us. We are still part of America and we are fighting a war for the freedom and rights that all Americans are entitled to.
