Koch Brothers: Thank you Nancy for Amnesty

The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers’ network of billionaire, donor class organizations says it is “thankful” for House Democrats’ unanimous vote to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
On Tuesday, every House Democrat and seven House Republicans voted to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens living across the United States so long as the nationals claim they arrived in the country as children.

The vote came as illegal immigration levels at the southern border have hit a two-decade high for the month of May. More than one to 1.5 million illegal aliens are expected to be added to the U.S. population this year alone.

The Koch brothers, who serve as mega-donors to the Republican establishment, praised House Democrats’ mass amnesty effort through their various economic libertarian organizations like the Libre Initiative and Americans for Prosperity.

I predict that at some point in the future, two reforms in how Congress does things are gonna happen:

1) Filibuster a we know it will be chipped away.
2) Individual members of Congress may well be ejected from their respective chamber for non-partisan compliance. More likely this will happen in the House than the Senate. It only has to happen a few times in order for the whips to use it as a threat to the others.

Those seven RINOs that voted for this today are protected since the GOP don't have enough votes to kick them out of Congress. But they are examples of sell outs that simply won't be tolerated any more than the excuses about the 'comity of the Senate' is for Senators being able to hold votes on legislation or nominee picks.

Remember how many times Establishment Conservativism/GOPe talked about "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" of which Amnesty was only a part?

These guys decided they'd take the Amnesty without the "Reform". We all knew that was a bullshit line anyway.

Those seven RINOs also know they have high paying low show positions waiting when then leave the Senate. See Eric Cantor, a Republican House Majority Leader who was primaried out but was hired right away as a reward for his service to the right donors.
