ForAmerica President: There’s ‘Zero Reason’ to Entertain Pro-Amnesty Sweeteners in Exchange for Wall Funding
Historically, Where There is [Sen.] Graham, Amnesty Usually Follows
(Clifton, VA, January 10, 2019) – In response to reports that a handful of Republicans led by Sen. Lindsey Graham have been discussing a ‘last-ditch push’ end the government shutdown, ForAmerica President David Bozell released the following statement:
“I know Sen. Graham has been complimentary of the President lately but I don’t trust his participation in the deal-making process on immigration. Historically, where there is Graham, amnesty usually follows.
“The wall is winnable. Liberals are grasping at straws in their attempts to derail the President’s mission to secure the border. Freshmen Democrats are running scared, some reportedly admitting that their constituents are expressing concern that the Democrats are not prioritizing security.
“Democrat leaders have no cards to play in this debate, and their message has been all over the map. They have gone from supporting strong borders, to declaring walls immoral, to saying they don’t work, to fretting about tunnels, to God-knows-what tomorrow.
“President Trump is accurate in his assessment of the crisis at the border. The country is behind him in his efforts and proposed solution – hence why he won the Presidency on his signature campaign promise to ‘build the wall.’
“There is zero reason to be entertaining any sweeteners for the pro-amnesty crowd. It only serves to muddy the waters of an issue where the President has Americans’ strong support.”
The New York Times called ForAmerica “One of the great unexpected influences of the [2016 Presidential] election.”
