Far from listening to and acting on conservative concerns about their border package, what we’re hearing is a plan by the House GOP leadership to continue to browbeat reluctant Members, or if necessary just plain lie, to get the votes for their original bill.

The Capitol Switchboard has been on fire with phone calls from voters angered by the House Republican leadership's border bill. Now the House is concluding business for the week without taking a vote on legislation that would make it easier for President Obama to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. UPDATE: House GOP leaders have called an emergency Republican Conference Meeting to discuss the fate of the bill.

The House GOP leadership bill would allow Obama to "parole" millions of illegal aliens who would then gain permanent legal resident status after a year and who could then apply for U.S. citizenship after five years.

Anti-amnesty group Numbers USA calls the House GOP bill an "open borders bill."

Republicans can lose 17 votes within their own party if no Democrats support the House leadership's expedited asylum plan. Please call your Congressman (the Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) and urge him or her to vote NO on this flawed attempt to address our country's border security needs.

Our friend Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, updates CHQ readers on how the tyranny of sustainable policy builds in town after town, neighborhood after neighborhood and why the powerful "Sustainablists" are in such a panic over his grassroots efforts to expose their outrages.

Democrats have a long term political goal of granting amnesty to millions of current illegal aliens whom they see as Democratic voters in-waiting. And by all indications House Republican leaders are playing right into their hands.
