Trump Amnesty Disaster

While the White House proposal technically ends chain migration and the lottery, it uses ALL those visas to bring in the 4 million people on the visa waiting list.  That means current immigration levels will continue for the next 10-15 years or more AND amnesty will be granted to a minimum of 1.8 million illegals.  These are permanent changes to America's electorate. If this passes the Trump proposal will make Republicans a permanent minority party and limited government constitutional conservatism a soon-to-be extinct philosophy of government.

Trump Snatching Defeat From The Jaws Of Victory On Immigration

The current level of immigration, even without amnesty, will add nearly 15 million new Left-leaning voters to our polity. Add to that amnesty for millions of mostly Mexican and Central American DACA beneficiaries and Trump will make Republicans a permanent minority party and limited government constitutional conservatism a soon-to-be extinct philosophy of government.

Now Is The Time To Crush The Democrats

It is inconceivable to us that Republican “leaders” cannot grasp what a strong political position they now hold vis-à-vis the Democrats, and how the future of their majority now balances on a knife’s edge. We urge CHQ readers to call the toll free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044), ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senator John Cornyn, tell them conservatives will bolt the GOP if they trade ending the #SchumerShutdown for amnesty for illegal aliens.

Trump Shoots Down Senate Liberals’ Amnesty Bill

President Trump called the deal proposed by Senators Flake and Durbin “horrible” on border security funding, the President also said the deal was “very, very weak” when it came to the White House’s preferred changes to the legal immigration system. "It's the opposite of what I campaigned for," the President.

Government by Sanctimony and Smears

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The Democrats still don’t understand that appeal, and this controversy, for which tattle-tales like Durbin congratulate themselves so giddily, will only enhance it once the superficial chatter and easy outrage have passed. The American people can forgive an obscenity from a president who is fighting battles others are too cowardly to confront. What they won’t forgive is a party that preened about “s***holes” while America turned into one.

Rick Santorum’s Bizarre and Hypocritical Endorsement of Marco Rubio

Rick Santorum attempted to present himself as an advocate for the all but forgotten interests of America’s working men and women, yet when Santorum exited the campaign he hypocritically chose to endorse Senator Marco Rubio – the leading advocate of open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens; the very policies that Santorum campaigned against.

Trump’s New York Values: A Long History Of Supporting Far-Left Politicians, Policies And Causes

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
When I look at who Donald Trump has walked with and where he’s walked what I see is not a maturing understanding of the value and validity of conservative thought and ideas about how to govern – what I see is a long record of paying to play with liberal politicians, of adopting liberal positions, and now opportunistically trying to mislead voters into believing he is a populist “conservative.”

Oberweis Wins GOP Primary to Face Durbin

Cameron Joseph, The Hill

IL state Sen. Jim Oberweis (R) won his Senate primary and will face House Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) in the fall. Oberweis, a wealthy dairy magnate, hardline conservative and perennial candidate, led businessman Doug Truax (R) by 55% to 45%.

Durbin Lies About Family to Up OCare

Charles C. Johnson, Daily Caller

Dick Durbin movingly described his sick child’s preexisting condition as a reason to support Obamacare, but didn't mention that she was easily covered by existing insurance. He used taxpayer money to reward the hospital that treated her.

Cruz Tells Orgs: Ignore Durbin

Burgess Everett, Politico

Cruz is encouraging organizations that supported the American Legislative Exchange Council not to respond to a request from Sen. Durbin asking for their positions on “stand your ground laws.”

Is Paul Ryan Joining Marco Rubio In Committing Amnesty Political Suicide?

Rep. Paul Ryan Should Listen to Conservatives and Reject Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants

We welcome Rep. Paul Ryan to the debate on how best to apply conservative principles to immigration reform – something that eluded Senator Rubio. However, if Ryan wants to avoid Marco Rubio’s fate he must begin by publicly and forcefully rejecting the corruption, pork and special interest favors of S. 744.
