    Tea Party Leader Raul Labrador Announces Presidential Endorsement to Fix ‘Broken’ Washington

    Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho), one of the founders of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, is endorsing Ted Cruz for President.

    First reported by National Review, Labrador’s endorsement comes just before Cruz takes on the crucial South Carolina primary.


    Labrador, who originally backed Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and served as the Western States Chairman for the now-defunct campaign, said in a statement Wednesday that Cruz “has always been a stalwart defender of the constitution and a tireless advocate for conservative principles,” adding:

    “Americans know Washington is broken. Ted Cruz is the only candidate that will truly change the way Washington works, restore the balance of power between the presidency and the American people, and advance the principles of freedom and liberty for all Americans, not just the privileged few.”


    Also in the statement, Cruz called Labrador a “passionate advocate for liberty who has spent his time in Congress fighting for the freedoms of Idahoans and for all Americas.”

    He thanked the Idaho Republican for his support by insisting that Washington needs more politicians of Labrador’s caliber because:

    “He has continuously stood up and fought for conservative principles like limited government, reigning in Obama’s lawlessness, defunding Obamacare and protecting life and marriage.”


    Meanwhile, Cruz’s rival candidate and fellow Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is racking up the endorsements as well before the Palmetto State’s primary on Saturday. Rubio snagged the coveted endorsement from governor Nikki Haley, adding to his long list of South Carolina supporters.

    But Labrador’s support could help Cruz court another critical endorsement, Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), who also serves on the Freedom Caucus.

    Whether Cruz’s latest endorsement will help him court more conservatives and have any effect at the polls on Saturday has yet to be seen, but it is certainly a crucial get for Cruz.

    2015-2016: A+

    Votes

    2015: Voted against the FY2016 Omnibus Spending bill to increase foreign workers and refugees Sen. Labrador voted against H.R. 2029, the Omnibus Spending bill for 2016. This legislation would increase the number of H-2B low-skilled, non-agricultural guest worker visas issued in 2016 from 66,000 to 264,000. It also increased funding for refugee resettlement to allow for an increase of 10,000 refugees in 2016.


    Voted in favor of Brooks amendment to remove military amnesty from National Defense Authorization Act in 2015 Rep. Labrador voted in favor of an amendment by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) to strip an amnesty provision from the National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 1735). The provision stripped by the Brooks Amendment would have encouraged the Secretary of Defense to waive military enlistment requirements for illegal aliens who received amnesty through Pres. Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The Brooks Amendment passed 221-to-202.


    Voted AGAINST funding Executive Amnesties by opposing clean DHS Appropriations bill, H.R. 240 in 2015 Rep. Labrador voted against final passage of H.R. 240, the DHS funding bill passed by the Senate which did not include riders to stop President Obama's unconstitutional Executive Amnesties. Although the House had originally passed H.R. 240 with these riders, the Senate stripped them out, thus fully funding the Executive Amnesties through September 2015. When the House voted on the bill as returned from the Senate, Sen. Labrador firmly opposed Executive Amnesty by voting against final passage (and consequently for a temporary shut down of DHS). Funding the President's illegal amnesties not only made Congress complicit in the President's lawless behavior, it also undermined the lawsuit filed by 26 states to stop implementation of the amnesties. If Congress is unwilling to fight to protect its own legislative powers, why should the courts fight on Congress's behalf? The bill passed by a vote of 257-167.


    Voted in favor of Aderholt Amendment to H.R. 240 to defund President Obama's November 2014 amnesty for illegal aliens in 2015 Rep. Labrador voted in favor of the Aderholt Amendment to H.R. 240, the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2015. The Aderholt Amendment would defund implementation of all Obama and DHS November 2014 memoranda; defund 4 of the 5 Morton Memos that deal with prosecutorial discretion and detail who ICE agents can and can't deport; and prohibit federal benefits from being given to any illegal alien covered by the November memoranda. The Aderholt Amendment passed by a vote of 237-190.


    Voted in favor of Blackburn Amendment to H.R. 240 to defund President Obama's DACA amnesty for illegal aliens in 2015 Rep. Labrador voted in favor of the Blackburn Amendment to H.R. 240, the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2015. The Blackburn Amendment would defund the processing of applications and renewals of President Obama's 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, thus making it impossible for DACA recipients to continue to receive legal status. The Blackburn Amendment passed by a vote of 218-209.


    Voted in favor of King Amdt to DHS Appropriations bill to prevent amnesty by prosecutorial discretion in 2013 Rep. Labrador voted in favor of the King amendment to the FY2014 DHS Appropriations Bill (H.R. 2217). This amendment would have prohibited the Department of Homeland Security from using funds appropriated by Congress to finalize, implement, administer, or enforce the "Morton Memos". The Morton Memos were a series of three memos issued in 2011 that authorized the use of prosecutorial discretion and/or deferred action to provide amnesty to certain illegal aliens, particularly those brought here as children by their illegal alien parents. The amendment, offered by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), passed by a 224-201 vote (6 June 2013).


    Voted as part of House Judiciary Committee in favor of H.R. 1772 to mandate use of E-Verify Rep. Labrador voted in favor of H.R. 1772, the Legal Workforce Act of 2013. This legislation would require most employers to use E-Verify within two years of enactment. Large employers, federal, state, and local agencies and federal and state contractors would need to comply within six months. The bill would also make the E-Verify program permanent. Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) is the bill's main sponsor. H.R. 1772 passed the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 22-9.


    Voted as part of House Judiciary Committee in favor of H.R. 2278 to facilitate local law enforcement cooperation with immigration agents Rep. Labrador voted in favor of H.R. 2278 the Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement Act of 2013 sponsored by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). The SAFE Act would empower local law enforcement agents to enforce immigration laws. As well, it would prevent cities from providing sanctuary to illegal aliens and providing funding for the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) that reimburses states for incarcerating illegal aliens. As well the SAFE Act requires DHS to create a national immigration violators database. The SAFE Act would help reduce illegal immigration by empowering law enforcement officials and making it more difficult for illegal aliens to live and work in local communities. H.R. 2278 passed the Judiciary Committee by a vote of 20 to 15.


    Cosponsoring H.R. 2278 to facilitate local law enforcement cooperation with immigration agents Rep. Labrador is cosponsoring H.R. 2278 the Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement Act of 2013 sponsored by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). The SAFE Act would empower local law enforcement agents to enforce immigration laws. As well, it would prevent cities from providing sanctuary to illegal aliens and providing funding for the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) that reimburses states for incarcerating illegal aliens. As well the SAFE Act requires DHS to create a national immigration violators database.
