Conservatives Battle GOP Leaders On Immigration

AZBD Note: From the 1963 Congressional Record. The 10 planks of The Communist Manifesto:

#15: Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.


The GOP leadership’s new immigration bill shows that top Republicans won’t fight against the Democrats’ unpopular immigration policies, even when the public overwhelmingly agrees with the GOP, say several GOP-affiliated conservatives.

The GOP leaders’ bill is so favorable to President Barack Obama that it is the political equivalent of “catching your opponent’s Hail Mary pass and running it into your own end zone for them,” said Daniel Horowitz, the policy director for the Madison Project.

The leaders’ immigration bill will be voted on Thursday, and most rank-and-file legislators are expected to support the bill.
