JEFF DUNCAN DROPS CO-SPONSORSHIP OF IMMIGRATION BILL PLANNED FOR INCLUSION IN NDAA
Breitbart ^ | April 2, 2014 | By Jonathan Strong

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

Good Lord!!

Or not. Mick and Trey both have heard we're not at all happy with their association with this ever-changing mess. Good going Jeff! DUNCAN, that is.

If I listen long enough to posters like you two, I might begin to believe what you say is true. And then, I might campaign against Trey's re-election next time, since he represents my district. Who do you guys want me to support instead in District 4?

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.

Fair question on your part. The truth is that Gowdy is about as good as a conservative voter could ask for. Yet he does not pass the FR “purity” test, and if Reagan was alive, I doubt he would either. That said, I feel angry over being represented by people who succumb to the lure of power in DC.

That is more than enough evidence to persuade us of SC District 4 that we may have made a horrible mistake and to rally us to unseat the one you are religiously Wormtongueing.

Thank you for all your good work; I require no additional proof positive of this (what you imply is) seditious behavior on that one's part.

I'll tell him what you said next time I see him. Happy?

No thank you please no more. Ha ha. You've already done quite too much (helpful?) pedaling of this doctrine to need convincing me any further. The status quo gotta go. Ha ha. Don't you agree with me?

You have also convinced me that you not speak with forked-tongue when you say that it (your proselytizing) is sad. It really and truly is.

The Democrats of District 4 are pleased with your work here on FR. Conservatives have already heard your idea and are not as enthused with your work here.
