What in the world is going on with the Republican Party and why do its members insist on selling out their conservative principles? It’s almost as if they want the Democrats to secure legislative victories in their pursuit to transform America into a giant left-wing dystopia.
The Senate has advanced gun control legislation this week that will severely impact Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. The legislation arose from bipartisan negotiations headed by GOP Sen. John Cornyn and is supported by the RINO coalition.
Following the announcement of the final bill, Cornyn hinted at an upcoming bipartisan push to secure amnesty for DREAMERS.
“First guns, now it’s immigration,” Sen. Cornyn said to Sen. Alex Padilla.
In response to Cornyn’s comment, Sinema said, “That’s right, we’re going to do it.”
The comment drew swift backlash from former Trump administration officials such as Andrew Surabian, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, and House Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Jim Banks.
McCarthy said amnesty was not on the table.
“Amnesty is a nonstarter with me and won’t be taken up by a House Republican majority,” the Republican leader told Axios.
.@GOPleader already pledged NO AMNESTY.
Republicans in the House are united and so are our voters!

No gun bill.

After the backlash, Cornyn claimed that he was merely joking and that no immigration talks are expected to occur.
“The Democrats and their allies in the media really can’t take a joke. There’s no secret amnesty bill,” Cornyn told Breitbart.
Update to earlier story about Cornyn's immigration comment to Padilla last night:
Cornyn now claims he was joking, despite working w/ Padilla as recently as April on a deal.

Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time Sen. Cornyn has voiced support for total amnesty of illegal aliens.
“I’ve always been sympathetic to giving them some certainty,” Cornyn said. “They’ve been in litigation for 10 years.”
In June 2020, after the Supreme Court upheld the Obama-era amnesty programs, Cornyn took the Senate floor to argue that it was time for a “permanent solution” for the illegal aliens in the country.
“DACA recipients deserve a permanent, legislative solution,” Cornyn said. “We must take action and pass a law that will unequivocally allow these young men and women to stay in the only home they’ve ever known. They deserve nothing less.”

Whatever the reasons may be, the Republican Party really hates winning and it’s so sad to witness.
Donald Trump’s immigration policies put forth during his 2016 campaign are cited as the main driver behind his presidential victory.
