I simply don’t believe this. Go away.
Believe it, NumbersUSA sent out an alert:
The Discharge Petition filed by Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) has 18 Republicans signatures. If all 193 Democrats sign on, it only needs 7 more GOP signatures to force a vote on several bad amnesty proposals.
We need your urgent phone calls until this threat is over!
Rep. Curbelo’s Discharge Petition would force a vote on Rep. Jeff Denham’s (R-Calif.) H.Res. 774. The Denham Resolution has nearly 250 cosponsors, so it’s sure to pass should it come to the floor for a vote.
Why is the Denham Resolution such a threat?
H.Res. 774 would force a vote on Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s H.R. 4760, the Securing America’s Future Act. H.R. 4760 would end chain migration and the visa lottery, require all employers to use E-Verify, strengthen border security and interior enforcement, and provide work permits to roughly 690,000 DACA illegal aliens.
But it would also ... allow votes on at least two amendments that would replace the entire Goodlatte bill with bad amnesty proposals, including the Dream Act that would grant a no-strings amnesty to more than 3 million illegal aliens and the Hurd-Aguilar bill that would grant a no-strings amnesty to at least 1.8 million illegal aliens.
Both the Dream Act and the Hurd-Aguilar bill would allow continued chain migration for illegal aliens who receive the amnesty and neither proposal would require employers to use E-Verify to end the jobs magnet.
The proposal with the most votes (and at least 218 votes) would be officially adopted by the House and sent to the Senate.
Please call Speaker Ryan TODAY and end this threat!
“House Speaker Paul Ryan dealt his own party’s presidential nominee a withering blow Monday, telling fellow Republicans he will no longer defend Donald Trump and will instead use the next 29 days to focus on preserving his party’s hold on Congress.” (11/11/2016)
I think both Ryan and McConnell are both part of the establishment resistance.
