House Armed Services committee chairman Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA) says a controversial immigration proposal shouldn't be in the upcoming Department of Defense authorization bill, a new blow to the effort to insert it into the bill.
In an interview on Laura Ingrahams radio program, McKeon said the NDAA is no place for the ENLIST Act a bill from Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA) that would grant amnesty to illegal alien DREAMers if they enlist in the U.S. armed forces.
While McKeon told Ingraham that yes, he is a cosponsor to the ENLIST Act, he said, but its not supposed to be on our military, our defense bill. Were not going to have it on our defense bill.

Low-life backstabbing political hack.
Some of these co-sponsors are not gung ho on amnesty. Denham and Diaz-Balart are bluffing to a degree with how fast they can do amnesty.
McKeon's right... democrats should not be able to get away with this...
The Democrats will get away with it because they are the ruling class. The GOP are nothing more than lapdogs and slaves to the Democrats. They make me want to vomit.
He’s absolutely right. The Dems use this tactic al the time
But I can hear the Dems now....mean old Republicans don’t want to fund our Armed Forces. They’ll be waving flags and have a fife and drum core playing in the background while they try to sneak this past the public. Time and time again.
Our problem is we have weak-kneed R’s that would happily agree to this ‘compromise’.
Then we'll wait for the effers at the New York Times to scream about it.
Of course we'll expect democrats to ‘cross the aisle’ and work with us... to help the downtrodden new Republicans....
It is not Democrats, it is Jeff Denham (RINO-California).
We have enough RINOs in the house we can afford to lose Denham and Grimm and replace them at a future date.
