Although the American People gave the Republican Party control of both houses of Congress and the Presidency, it appears that, in many ways, the Democrats are still controlling the agenda. After passing a budget deal which massively adds to the debt by increasing yearly deficits to over one trillion dollars, the Republicans now plan to move on another Democrat priority… amnesty for illegal aliens.
Republicans have had complete control of Washington for just over a year, and already we are returning to Obama-era deficits and debating a massive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens? Be honest, is this what winning looks like?
House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday that an amnesty and immigration bill is the “next big priority” for the House.
“I know that there is a real commitment to solving the DACA challenge in both political parties,” he said at his Thursday press conference. He continued:
That is a commitment that I share. To anyone who doubts my intention to solve this problem and bring up a DACA and immigration reform bill, do not. We will bring a solution to the floor, one that the president will sign.
We must pass this budget agreement first though so we can get on to that. So please know we are committed to getting this done …
Getting this [two-year] budget agreement done allows us to shift our focus on the next big priority, which has a deadline, which is this issue.
