Posted on 04/03/2014 9:43:45 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
South Carolina Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan is dropping his co-sponsorship of an immigration bill House Republicans have been quietly working to include in the upcoming Department of Defense authorization bill, saying the language should never have been considered to be added to the unrelated measure.
Late Wednesday, Duncan said he hadn't been aware of efforts by the bill's author, California Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA), to add the language to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and that if it were added, NDAA would lose my vote as well.
At issue is a proposal to allow so-called DREAMers to obtain permanent legal residency by joining the military.
Sophomore Republican Rep. Jeff Denham of California, a close ally of GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy, is leading the push to add the text of his ENLIST Act to the NDAA, which could come to the House floor as early as next month.
Duncan is the first of 42 co-sponsors to rescind his support since Breitbart News reported of the effort to add the proposal to the NDAA bill. The secretive effort has set off a panic among top immigration hawks that inclusion of the language could open an immigration Pandora's box, paving the way for a broader immigration bill.
The South Carolinian's support for the Denham bill was particularly important because Duncan is a high-profile conservative.
Reps. Mick Mulvaney and Trey Gowdy the latter of whom is the chairman of the immigration subcommittee on the House Judiciary Committee are two other South Carolina Republican cosponsors who could provide conservative heft to the Denham effort.

Golly gee, I wonder what touchy feeling language and phrasing they came up with to spell out the word ENLIST!
Should I even bother looking it up?
I just did. Here it is:
Encourage New Legalized Immigrants to Start Training
So TREY GOWDY is a snake and tried to ram thru
Amnesty in the Defense Bill !!!
Where are all the Trey Groupies Now !!!!
I WARNED everyone the whole IRS tying was
a PR scam so he could RAM Thru Amnesty
for his K street Big AG donor!
What is wrong with these morons? If they worked as hard at bring Obama and his cronies to justice as they did at this amnesty BS, our country would be a lot better off.
That has to win the cheesiest government acronym of the year award!
Can Republicans be any stupider than trying to tack on another Mexican vote-buying scheme to a defense bill???
I swear, they must waste so much time coming up with these clever acronyms.

Too bad MegaVote allows me to receive emails about votes only by my Senators and Trey.
Them peaches don't pick themselves you know! More and more it seems that Trey is becoming Lindsey's lap dog in training.
Has Trey Gowdy been to Denham’s district? Gowdy has implied that the 50% Hispanic district is too lazy to pick asparagus.
I understand if Steve King’s district or Raul Labrador’s district is too lazy to work but what about all the family vallues hardworking Mexicans in Denham’s district.
Denham has 100,000 or more hispanics in his district. Are there a few illegal and Mexican Nationals amongst them to do farm work?
Or do they need a new wave of workers to pick asparagus?
Gohmert is leading the charge against this bill. Maybe Gowdy needs to stop casting aspersions on the Asparagus.
Gowdy outing himself in 2013 as a RINO.
I’d be happy if Gowdy and Mulvaney lost to Democrats and a conservative was put in the seat from 2016-2024. Better 8 years of a conservative than 10 years of a RINO.
Aaron Schock and Adam Kinzinger are in 2 safe Republican districts and they could be there for a decade. The Republicans in competitive districts are less liberal.
here is a recent gem
secret meetings with Chuckie and Ryan
there are more
So secret amnesty talks with traitors like Ryan and Chuck Shummer
Gowdy is a con artist
Secret meetings with radical Shummer peddling amnesty
here is more
Just run a search on ‘Gowdy supports amnesty “ and the list of articles is long.
