Immigration Reform? The President Says Trust Me. Representative King says, “No”
The old guard republican caucus is lost. So mired in politics, they have lost their way. Their compass no longer points true north. THAT is why we lost the election. Well that and illegal voter suppression from the IRS and a cover up of 4 deaths in Benghazi. Put aside the issue for a second. Irrespective of your stance on immigration reform, ask yourself why the GOP continues to agree to these back room deals with the Democrats? FOLLOW THE RULE OF LAW. Allow BOTH Houses of Congress to debate and legislate. Get our Republic out of the back rooms and into the light. The same thing is already happening with the next debt deal. ENOUGH.
