Pro-Mass Immigration Koch Brothers Threaten GOP: Pass Amnesty for Illegal Aliens or Lose Our $$
Breitbart ^ | 24 Apr 18 | John Binder

Posted on 04/25/2018 6:29:56 AM PDT by xzins

The pro-mass immigration GOP megadonor billionaire Koch brothers are threatening Republicans running midterm campaigns, saying they want to see an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens passed or they will “closely evaluate” their aiding and funding of certain candidates.

The Koch brothers represent a number of organizations that purport to be conservative and libertarian-leaning, including Freedom Partners, the LIBRE Initiative, Americans for Prosperity, and Generation Opportunity. The billionaires’ businesses include Matador Cattle Company, Koch Pipeline, and Guardian Industries.

In an interview with The Hill, Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips said the pro-amnesty, pro-mass immigration Koch networks would “closely evaluate” their participation in GOP midterm races if those candidates did not help push an amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens who are eligible and enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Breitbart News has closely chronicled the Koch brothers’ attempts to not only pass an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens but also keep the current policies of mass legal immigration intact to keep the U.S. labor market flooded and prevent wages for American workers from rising.

The Koch brothers’ agenda of a low-wage economy with mass immigration is at deep odds with Republican voters and Trump supporters. Most recent polling reveals that reducing overall immigration to the U.S. is more important than tax cuts, repealing Obamacare, and even destroying the Islamic State (ISIS).

The Kochs’ most recent attempt to galvanize support for mass immigration came in the form of a seven-figure ad campaign in which they advocated for giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens by using the words of the Washington, D.C., political establishment, which is unified not only on mass immigration, but also on endless free trade and foreign interventionism.

And to think that just a few years ago, it was voter manipulation by the evil Kochs that the Democrats railed against. Anyone else remember?

Big donors dictating national policy is 80% of what it wrong with this country.

So how many illegals are in the US? 10 million?

And how many acres are there on the Koch estate?

Could be a bit of a problem. But I can be onboard.

Trump is eventually going to sign an amnesty bill.

Bullseye.

The question is how to counteract it?

My guess is that millions of small donors can swamp them, but it is hard to organize millions of small donors.

He number 11 million has been used for at least 15 years. It is probably 3 times that many by now.

There are many here operating on the emotional level to stop all immigration.

So in reading this article our preconceived position comes first.

The fact is we need and want some immigration. What we want is controlled immigration, which is what we have always had for the most part.

We want the good one, deport that bad ones. We don’t have a plan right now and we need one.

This article does not speak to that issue, and maybe intentionally.

In the period 1880-1920 about 30% of the newcomers returned to the old country. Couldn’t hack it. No welfare back then. It’s called self deportation.

With this, the Koch brothers are aiding and abetting criminal activity. They should stop it immediately.

You are correct if I had to guess it is more like 30M-40M. The Koch asses are like Soros open borders and citizenship for anyone in the world. I would vote for a democrat before I would vote for anyone the Koch brothers support.

What might you suggest?

I’ve been for the following: NOTHING can be ‘given’ by any entity that cannot pull the lever; nor can donations be received from ‘external’ source(s) [run for State position, only can come from intraState, Pres = whole of U.S. & territories.]

No time, no property, no support, no...ZERO, zilch, nada should be allowed by non-voting\’foreign’ entities
