Billionaire Koch Brothers: ĎAgainst Our Principlesí to End Anchor Baby Policy
Breitbart ^ | 31 Oct 2018 | John Binder

Posted on 11/01/2018 3:51:03 AM PDT by Mr. Mojo

The pro-mass immigration, GOP megadonor, billionaire Koch brothers are opposing President Trump’s plan to executively end birthright citizenship, which rewards the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens.

On Tuesday, President Trump announced that he is readying an executive order to end birthright citizenship in the U.S. The unilateral move would carry the country into the future on the issue, putting the nation more in line with similar Western countries. Currently, the U.S. and Canada are the only developed nations in the world that offer unrestricted birthright citizenship.

The children of illegal aliens are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they anchor their illegal alien and noncitizen parents in the U.S. There are at least 4.5 million anchor babies in the country, a population that exceeds the total number of annual American births.

After Trump suggested his plan to end birthright citizenship, the Koch brothers-funded LIBRE Initiative organization released a statement, calling the anchor baby policy part of the country’s “principles.”

“The president has stated his intention to use executive action to try to end birthright citizenship in this country – a proposal he first endorsed as a candidate in 2015,” LIBRE Initiative President Daniel Garza said in a statement.

“Then and now, we declare our opposition to this idea that goes against our principles. Our immigration laws should be updated based on the most thoughtful ideas,” Garza said. “We remain ready to work with anyone who is willing to work seriously toward this important goal.”

The statement from the Koch brothers’ organizational network is just the latest attempt for the economic libertarian billionaires to oppose Trump’s “America First” agenda.

The principles in question: flooding the West with third worlders and the eventual abolition of national borders and nation-states altogether. Just like the principles of all other globalists.

The left’s tycoon donors are down the line hardened Marxists on every issue while ours are cucked out RINO’s. Explains a lot of the attitudes in Congress.

Destroy yourselves some other way, Koch brothers. Don’t take the rest of the USA down with you.

Are they waiting until 2020 before they change parties, or are they going to keep pretending that Kasich the answer to everything?

No surprise the Koch brothers are for anchor babies.

Usually they let their puppet, Paul Ryan, speak for them.
But since Ryan is on his way out, they need to speak for themselves.

The Koch’s are maybe more anti-Trump than the Soros family.

I expect them to bankroll either a Kasich or Ryan run as an Independent in 2020 in an attempt to divide the GOP vote and get a Dem elected. The Kochs would rather see ANY Dem in the WH than Trump.

So they should change the name of their group to “Americans AGAINST Prosperity”.

“Our principles?”

Mr. Garza, your principles are NOT my principles.

I don’t know whether you’re speaking for yourself of all of us, but assuming the latter is presumptuous and wrong.

It’s against MY PRINCIPLES to NOT END this anchor baby BS. I guess we’ve got a tie and MY principles mean more to me than the principles of these two fags. The Ben and Jerry of BIG Money.

Hey, Koch fellers! I and all my relatives want to live in your yards. We only have tents right now, but we have plans to upgrade our homes. OK with that? If so, we'll start arriving soon. If not OK, we'll start arriving soon anyway. Open your gates so we don't have to destroy them. Ha, ha!

Which is why you get crap like the deputy managing editor of the NR with a long, illogically argued piece up as to why citizenship for illegals’ anchor babies supposedly can’t be done away with.

I think of the Koch Brothers as George Soros with a few tax cuts. Same agenda and ultimate goals, slightly different economic model of how to get there.

Does anyone remember how, about 10 years ago, all the left could talk about was the evil Koch brothers?

If 80 or 90% of us want it ended our politicians will just have to find a way to justify it. This is how things really work. No politician will fail to exploit this sentiment.

Clash of the Titans.

The “malefactors of great wealth” have met head on with the force of nature that is Donald J. Trump.

And Trump is President of the United States.

We shall see if American idealism can stand against the darkness of reaction and tyranny.
