BAUER: Let the Immigration Debates Begin!!!

Senators predicting a “free-for-all” debate

By Gary Bauer

Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. — Sen. John Cornyn recently said, “It sounds like Senator McConnell is just going to let people have at it. It ought to be pretty fascinating.” Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell himself said last week that whichever side can produce 60 votes “wins.”

After securing passage of a budget deal that fully funds the Pentagon and keeps the government open just last week, the Senate is now turning its attention to Immigration Reform.

According to The Hill, “Senators are predicting a free-for-all” debate.

Left-wing politicians have made it clear in recent weeks that their number one priority is amnesty. Meanwhile, the GOP is divided between the cheap labor business-wing establishment and border security conservatives.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (left, with McConnell and Sen. Orrin Hatch,) is introducing legislation modeled after President Trump’s compromise proposal — a path to citizenship for DACA recipients and those eligible for DACA protections in exchange for serious reforms to our current immigration system and an upfront commitment for major border security improvements.

Grassley’s bill is co-sponsored by Senators:

  • Cornyn (R-TX)
  • Cotton (R-AR)
  • Ernst (R-IA)
  • Lankford (R-OK)
  • Perdue (R-GA) and
  • Tillis (R-NC)

Unfortunately, progressive leaders denounced the president’s plan, so it is hard to imagine enough Senate Democrats voting for it to pass.
