Call Congress Tell Them No Amnesty, No Cheap Immigrant Labor

Today, RINO Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and his failed leadership team of Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Republican Whip Steve Scalise and Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry are making one last push to pass a majority-killing pre-election amnesty for illegal aliens.

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Tucker Dobbs ImmigrationRepresentative to demand he or she vote NO on Ryan’s amnesty bill when it comes to the Floor today.

However, defeating Ryan’s bill may not be easy, because, unlike the failed vote last week on the more conservative Goodlatte bill, which Ryan and his leadership team let die through lack of action, Ryan said of this bill, “I want to lean into that [Wednesday] vote and do as well as we possibly can in that vote.”

What is it, exactly, that Ryan is leaning into to pass?

According to our friend Neil Munro of Breitbart, in addition to amnesty for millions of so-called DREAMERs, “The bill would allow food-sector employers to keep a population of up to 1.35 million ‘H-2C’ guest-workers working on farms and in the food-processing industry. The law would allow employers to bring in 450,000 workers per year, under three-year visas, who would largely replace the existing population of roughly 1 million illegal immigrants — and also force wages down for many Americans and legal immigrants.”

Munro says the H-2C visa-worker program is backed by many business groups because it would force down the price of labor in many sectors by dramatically increasing the supply of workers. The workers are especially sought by the low-tech agriculture industry, which is facing increased competition from high-tech competitors overseas, many of whom also use cheaper labor than in the United States.

“What we have here is the seeds of consensus,” Speaker Ryan said on Tuesday. He predicted it would be the basis for legislation that eventually becomes law, “hopefully now but if not, later.”

However, according to the Associated Press, Ryan declined to answer questions about a separate, narrow measure Republicans are privately discussing. It would focus on the issue that has grabbed public attention in recent days: the Trump administration’s separation of illegal border crossing children from their parents when families are caught crossing the border.

Ryan, McCarthy, Scalise and McHenry are continuing to try to bribe their way to a majority on the bill, however, the AP reports several lawmakers said those provisions hadn’t addressed the major reason for GOP disaffection — opposition to granting blanket amnesty to those who broke our laws to get into the country.

“I don’t think it advances the ball, I really don’t,” said Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Ala.

With Ryan and his “leadership” team still cast about for votes and no draft online, at this point the Ryan bill is looking like another Nancy Pelosi, “we have to pass it to know what’s in it” type of bill.

Our friend Rosemary Jenks, policy director for NumbersUSA got it right when she told Breitbart, “This whole program makes it very clear that the Republican leadership leader and the Representatives involved in these negotiations don’t understand what the 2016 election was about, have not read their party’s platform for the 2016 election, and are on the side of Wall Street, not Main Street.” She added: It is exactly the forgotten American workers who put [President Donald] Trump into the White House who these [GOP] people are trying to the kick to the curb again.

Ms. Jenks is right, and Ryan’s commitment to “lean into” the vote on this bill, after he let the Goodlatte bill die through neglect is all the proof conservatives should need to oppose Ryan’s bill.

Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Republican Whip Steve Scalise and Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry are all complicit and part of the problem. If we had a principled conservative Speaker, like Jim Jordan, and a conservative House leadership team the country would be safer, and conservatives would not be given a “we have to pass it to know what’s in it” bill as the only alternatives to address our border security problems.

If Republicans want to win in November, they must make clear to voters that their choice for Speaker is someone other than current Republican Leaders, someone who is fighting against DC’s Swamp culture and is consistently advocating for Trump’s agenda.  Click this link to add your name to the list of conservative leaders demanding a change in the House leadership by electing Jim Jordan Speaker.
