CHQ and Ear to the Ground Survey Reveals Trump Supporters Will Not Support President On Amnesty

Trump supporters couldn’t be clearer: 71% of his base they will no longer support the President if amnesty is included in immigration reform. However, they also said they are confident President Trump will follow-through on his campaign promises regarding immigration.

The Elephant In The Room Last Night

There were many things conservatives could applaud in last night’s State of the Union address, but the President’s eloquent paean to the economic promise of America was largely drowned-out by opposition to the notion of giving a path to citizenship to 1.8 million illegal aliens.

New Poll: Conservatives Say No Filibuster On Funding The Government

In the wake of the three-day government shutdown, almost 84% of those responding to the FedUp PAC poll say that funding bills should be passed by a simple majority rather than the 60 votes require to break a filibuster.

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.

Dreamers Vs. Fetuses

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Liberals claim to love humanity, with hearts that must be two sizes larger than the average American. But not every category of vulnerable humans gets this treatment. Consider the hundreds of thousands of unborn babies who are aborted each year in this country. They are not considered part of humanity. Reporters refer to them using the cold, clinical term "fetus." These humans never get a chance to get an engineering degree to gain your sympathy. No journalist calls them "Dreamers."

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.

Conservatives Want Trump to Be Trump

More than 54% of conservatives responding to the FedUp PAC poll take the position that Trump “should continue to say the same thing in the same way about merit-based immigration.” Another 39% agree with Trump about the necessity of moving to merit-based immigration but say that he “should be more careful about the language he uses.”

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.

It’s Time to Bring the Southern Poverty Law Center to Justice

The SPLC is a dangerous organization, guilty of the hate it claims to fight. The fact is the SPLC would just be another run of the mill leftist outfit if it didn’t have such close ties with our government. Those ties need to be thoroughly investigated by the Congressional Homeland Security Committee and then severed immediately.

Democrats decree death in the swamp for the Dreamers

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Even as the U.S. Homeland Security Agency has started accepting applications for extensions, as ordered by the courts pending final adjudication of the legislation. Even that’s not good enough for the Democrats. They insist on a permanent solution now, and if this inconveniences the Dreamers, that’s just too bad. Elections have consequences, and the Democrats, who did a little dreaming of their own about Hillary Clinton, just can’t understand why they can’t have it their way, anyway.

What the 'Dreamer' fight is really about

Victor Davis Hanson, Los Angeles Times

Forgotten also are historic truths about immigration. In the past, immigration has proven a great boon to a host country — if it was legal, measured, meritocratic and diverse. Illegal immigration flourished because Democrats wanted future constituents, and Republicans sought inexpensive labor. But an irate public has had it with open borders — and both parties are scrambling to hide their past and present agendas for now by focusing on the idealized Dreamers.

Getting The Immigration Bills Straight

Extending DACA or passing a larger amnesty bill before we build the promised border wall, before we take other actions to improve border security, before we beef up internal enforcement of our immigration laws, and before we remove the incentives to come and stay in America illegally would be a colossal mistake.

Should a Wall Protect the Super Bowl?

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Physical barriers can be used to stop people from going where they have no right to go; they are not inherently immoral; and, given a cost-benefit analysis of what it is you are protecting and how much it costs to protect, they can be well worth the cost. A wall is neither moral nor immoral any more than a baseball bat is moral or immoral. What matters is the purpose for which it is used.

Trump Says What Normal Americans Think, Establishment Goes Nuts

We think all the establishment huffing and puffing about President Trump's "sh-thole" remark is cover for the fact that other than achieving their goal of fundamentally changing America, they have no answer for why we need more uneducated immigrants from underdeveloped countries.

Who Is Right: Rush Or Tucker And Ann?

So, who is right? Rush, who says don’t worry the President's meeting wasn’t about DACA, amnesty or anything but showing the world that Trump is in control and isn’t suffering from dementia. Or is it Tucker Carlson and Ann Coulter who say the meeting was a disaster, and perhaps the lowest point of Donald Trump’s presidency?

The DACA Lovefest At The White House

Ann Coulter and Rep. Steve King are right, the real goal of the latest immigration deal is not to merely grant some humanitarian-motivated relief to current DACA beneficiaries, it is to advance the ultimate goal of changing the United States into an open borders globalist econometric society stripped of any of the of the trappings of nationhood or American exceptionalism.
