The Koch Network’s High Hopes and Early Push for an Immigration Deal
NRO ^ | Jan 29 2019 | Jim Geraghty

Indian Wells, Calif. — On paper, the outlook for an immigration deal, either small-scale or comprehensive, has rarely looked grimmer. President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi detest each other, with Pelosi calling Trump’s vision of border security “an immorality” and the president having outraged Democrats by rescinding protections for those previously covered under DACA and Temporary Protected Status. Migrant chains rush to the border and encounter Border Patrol officers with tear gas, fueling the perception of a lawless mob pounding at the gates of the country. Democratic presidential candidates flirt with the idea of abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement entirely. The Right sees the Left as effectively desiring open borders; the Left sees the Right as inherently xenophobic.

But leaders and donors in the Koch Seminar Network, the well-funded and powerful network of activist groups, actually think an agreement could be reached this year.

I’d like to see a complete expose on the Kochs. Are they simply mega rich men who think that their money entitles them to craft our immigration policies to their liking?
(Like a couple of rich dogs licking their balls, because they can) Or are they closet Liberals bent on the destruction of our democracy like the Soros’, Steyer’s and other Capo Communiists? They claim to be “republicans,” but from what I’ve seen, that’s just a “flag of convenience” for them.

“...fueling the perception of a lawless mob pounding at the gates of the country.”

“Perception” of lawless mobs?

Are the editors of NRO living on another planet?

Leave it to the Neo-con twits of NRO to call what is happening in FACT, a “perception.”

The Kochs are political morons with unlimited ammo in the form of donor money. Allying with Democrats and liberals means that many of the economic liberties they champion will eventually be buried under a flurry of socialist legislation. If they’re successful, the outcome will be libertinism combined with socialism and sky-high crime rates (thanks to the recent federal sentencing reforms aka amnesty for drug felons legislation).

“I’d like to see a complete expose on the Kochs.”

Their excessive zeal tells me they are rich, greedy farm and vinyard owners who need cheap labor.
