In 2016, voters gave the Republican Party control of the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Presidency. One of the most often-repeated promises by Republicans during that election campaign was to end Barack Obama’s illegal “DACA” Amnesty program.
Little did we fools who voted for them know, that the way they intended to end the illegal program was to make it LEGAL.
After President Trump rescinded Obama’s unconstitutional DACA program, Republicans in the Senate have now introduced a bill which will provide legal status to DACA recipients for another three years. This is intended to kick the can down the road until such time as there are enough votes to grant a full and unconditional Amnesty. In announcing the introduction of their bill, these senators claim that border security will be included, but without building the wall any talk of “security” is just a cynical ploy to trick people into supporting Amnesty.
Taking the lead on this sellout is, of course, liberal Republican John Cornyn of Texas.
The complete list of Republican co-sponsors (as of this writing) is as follows:

For decades, the U.S. has ignored obvious issues w/ our immigration policy & it’s only made the problem worse. It is time for R’s & D’s to come together so we can provide the certainty that #Dreamers deserve & the border security our country desperately needs. pic.twitter.com/rOkVl8fBFf
