Long-time pro-mass immigration billionaires Charles and David Koch became the latest force to pressure congressional Republicans to nullify the end of DACA with a legislative amnesty Thursday.
Koch spokespeople said the brothers will throw their weight behind the growing effort to force a two-house GOP majority that has refused to pass either funding for the southern border wall or the RAISE Act, a key nationalist immigration reform, to quickly pass an amnesty for those who were once exempted from federal immigration law under President Barack Obamas DACA.
The Koch amenability to open borders and amnesty is nothing new. In 2013, they sponsored an Immigration Summit featuring admitted illegal alien Jose Antonia Vargas and a half dozen other open borders fundamentalists. In 2016, Charles Koch compared then-candidate Donald Trumps immigration proposals to Nazi Germany.
This year, Koch-funded groups stepped up their pro-illegal alien rhetoric. The LIBRE Initiative, a Hispanic-outreach wing of the Koch political empire, launched a campaign to pressure Congress to grant drivers licenses and other government benefits to illegal aliens. In August, they issued a press release calling for amnesty and saying so-called Dreamers represent some of the best and brightest in our country.
After Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the phased end of DACA, the group doubled down, calling for Congress to pass amnesty for illegals who violated American immigration laws when they were young.
Facebook founding billionaire Mark Zuckerberg is very much in tune with the Koch network over DACA, as is the Chamber of Commerce.
With 18 Congressional Republicans clamoring to quench the business elites thirst for young illegal alien labor even before the end of DACA was announced, the Kochs and their ilk in that world are unlikely to have trouble finding allies in their push for amnesty.

Aren’t they on our side? Or is it that we should hate them less than the left?
They are CLE / GOP Establishment. No surprise.
>> Arent they on our side?
Confiscate the Koch’s billions and use it to build the wall. Same for Suckerberg.
There are over 300 million American citizens. Why are American businesses more concerned about these 800,000 Mexican citizens?
oh shucks, there go those gope libertarian billionaires again! so self-reliant.
Now you know why the swamp is for amnesty. Because these self fellating kochsuckers are for amnesty.
What did they do to push for the repeal of obamacare?
Oh...the guys that line Ryan’s and McConnell’s pockets.
May they all die an agonizing prolonged death today. Damn you all to hell. Traitors.
The elites of this country are completely tone deaf to the needs and wants of this country’s citizens. It will take nothing short of a Storming of the Bastille for this national rot to cease.
Oh...the guys that line Ryans and McConnells pockets.
...that is who they are...when you see Ryan and McConnell and Graham and McCain, think of Koch.
No. They are part of the Deep State.
Ryan and McConnell smell the Koch cash and they drool like Pavlov’s dog.
I guess they want cheap labor, are globalists or both.
He means “Pre$$ure”....
Isn’t it wonderful to see the gratitude of the Koch brothers to the people who fought and defended the system that allowed the Koch’s to become fabulously wealthy?
