Two Republican Senators ask Democrats for help to get an amnesty deal passed

A couple of congressional Republicans appear to be working desperately to get an amnesty deal passed.

Breitbart reports that Sens. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and John Cornyn (R-TX) have gone so far as to formally ask Senate Democrats to help them get a measure passed that would grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens. 

Tillis and Cornyn did so by way of a letter that they sent to Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Dear Chair Durbin”

In the opening paragraph of this letter, Tillis and Cornyn made plain their purpose for writing, which was to ask Durbin to “schedule an Executive Business Meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee to consider legislation to offer permanent legal status to only currently enrolled and active participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.”

Tillis and Cornyn went on to argue that “given the DACA program’s shaky legal foundations, the most urgent need is to advance a solution for our currently enrolled DACA recipients.”

They, later in the letter, explain that, even though they believe that DACA “contravenes the Immigration and Nationality Act” and that “it was likely unconstitutional when issued by President Obama,” they are “concerned” that those “who rely on the program and came out of the shadows to participate in our economy-will lose their employment authorization when the program is ultimately struck down.”

Tillis and Cornyn conclude by expressing their hope that they can put together a piece of legislation, granting amnesty to DACA recipients, that would be able to get past the U.S. Senate.

Background

Cornyn, in particular, has been working to get a piece of amnesty legislation through the Senate for months now. But, he has been unsuccessful.

Part of the problem for Cornyn is that the granting of amnesty to potentially millions of illegal immigrants living in America is not a popular idea among the country’s legal residents, especially at a time in which we are witnessing the southern border crisis.

Poll after poll has consistently shown that the majority of Americans are more in favor of policies that are consistent with former President Donald Trump’s “America First” immigration approach, than the sort of policies supported by Cornyn, former President George W. Bush, and other establishment Republicans.

Don’t expect Cornyn to back off, though. Part of the urgency here, that caused him to ask the Democrats for help, comes from the fact that the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas is considering whether or not to, in Cornyn’s words, “permanently enjoin the DACA program.”

If Cornyn is successful in getting legislation passed, it is expected that it would grant amnesty to about 800,000 illegal aliens currently residing in the United States.
