Koch Brothers Come Out AGAINST Deportation of Illegal Aliens
Speaking through their non-profit the LIBRE Initiative, billionaire GOP donors and alleged Republicans Charles and David Koch confirmed publicly what some already know – they do not want illegal aliens to be deported from the United States.
“The president has a duty to enforce the nation’s immigration laws. But mass-deportation is not the answer,” said Daniel Garza, president of the LIBRE Initiative in a press release.
“History has shown that the execution of an enforcement-only approach will not solve our nation’s immigration challenges,” he continued. “Furthermore, mass-deportation has unintended consequences that can be disruptive to communities, impacting many more than the immigrants – as many of these individuals are contributing members of society.”
Open borders are contrary to what the GOP publicly espouses as a matter of policy, but as President Donald J. Trump has exposed, members of the establishment GOP have simply been giving the American people lip service on the issue while filling their campaign coffers with cash from the Koch Brothers and other pro-open borders lobbyists.
Instead of closing the borders and deporting illegal aliens, the Koch Brothers’ non-profit wants Trump to increase legal immigration. Of course, that will continue to drive down wages and decrease employment opportunities for low skilled Americans, long left behind by the professional conservatives in Washington, D.C.
“By reforming the procedures and practices around asylum, making lawful immigration more flexible and responsive to our economy, we can reduce these pressures and improve the situation at and near our borders,” the release said.
Recently, the Koch’s announced that they were ready to battle Trump in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Big League Politics reported:
Billionaire heirs Charles and David Koch are gearing up to wage a public influence campaign in favor of granting amnesty to ‘dreamers,’ illegal immigrants brought to the United States at a young age.
TIME magazine reported that the inheritors of the massive Koch family fortune plan to use their extensive political infrastructure to exert muscle with the hopes of securing a legal status for the approximately 700,000 DACA illegals. The political move would come as the latest effort in the Kochs’ long history of seeking to increase levels of immigration to the United States even higher, further than the current record-breaking annual flow.
Formerly holding a prominent role in national Republican politics, the Koch brothers fell into disrepute among conservatives and Republicans for a series of policy views at odds with the everyday citizen, including financial support for wage-sinking mass immigration. The Kochs declined to support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, although they had previously been among the most extensive and prolific political donors in the United States.
Although they stood steadfastly against President Trump’s campaign, the Kochs were eager to work with the administration to advance other policy priorities, such as tax cuts and prison reform. With two items knocked off their cafeteria list of preferred policies, the Kochs now seem set to oppose the fundamental American nationalist political agenda of Donald Trump. Sources within the Koch political network described the multi-faceted entity as likely to campaign for numerous open-borders and pro-mass migration Democrats in 2020, while once again declining to support Trump.
