Report: Gang of Eight, Big Business to Target House GOP on Immigration


Sensing support for the Senate’s immigration bill is losing momentum and anticipating the fierce resistance against the bill during the August recess, the Gang of Eight will coordinate with the big business interests to target at least 100 House Republicans and pressure them into supporting the measure studies have shown would devastate the wages of working class Americans of all races and backgrounds.

Politico reported on Tuesday evening that Gang of Eight Senators, like Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) met with groups like Microsoft, Google, Intel, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s “to discuss a coordinated campaign” to target House Republicans “when they are at home in their districts over the next month.”
