Joe Carr, a Tennessee state representative challenging incumbent Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) in the August 7th GOP primary, released an audio statement Wednesday calling on Alexander to sign the Federation for American Immigration Reform's (FAIR) No Amnesty Pledge.
Carr, who said the same anti-amnesty sentiment that toppled House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) can oust Alexander, also criticized Alexander for remaining silent about and contributing to the illegal immigrant crisis at the border.
"We have a manufactured crisis on our southern border a crisis created by Barack Obama and Lamar Alexander, with the idea that granting amnesty to 11 million illegal aliens at a cost of $40 billion dollars is going to solve a problem for the American worker," he stated. "As this nation's crisis has unfolded, Lamar Alexander has been silent. Lamar Alexander refuses to accept responsibility for his role in this reckless and misguided support of amnesty, and has played in jeopardizing the security of our border and the lives lost by those hoping to benefit from his amnesty solution."
Carr cited a Breitbart News report that detailed how law enforcement agents warned Alexander and other senators in 2013 that passing the Senate's comprehensive immigration reform bill that Alexander voted for would exacerbate the border crisis and entice "thousands of unaccompanied children, runaways, and families" to "illegally enter the United States in hopes of receiving legalization."
"We have now seen that come to pass," said Carr. "Lamar Alexander's support for amnesty is the cause of our escalating border crisis. This is a national crisis. Thousands of children are suffering all because Lamar Alexander ignored the rule of law and the condition of our border."

We KNOW he was for Amnesty in the past, so just run with that knowledge.
Now, he may step up and say “sure, OK, I’ll sign it- just don’t do what you did to Cantor”
and then LIE about it...
The Obama DREAMER WAR ON CHILDREN continues at the Southern US Border with hostile Nation Mexico.
1.) One challenger running in a primary, not a bazillion.
2.) Brat focuses on one (or 2) issues, immigration and rule of law.
It looks like Mr. Carr has looked at his winning model and maybe quietly adapting it.
Well Played Mr. Carr, Well Played....
The dumb arses in SC needed to get behind one challenger to take out Linda Grammnesty - instead, they gave the nomination to him - stupid, stupid, stupid!
