During discussions about who will fill the seat of once-failed presidential candidate and former Senator John McCain (R-AZ), the name of a “Republican” pro-amnesty former Senator continues to surface.
Jon Kyl served in the U.S. Senate from 1995 to 2013 alongside McCain, and was Senate Majority Whip for some of that time. His voting record on immigration can is moderate at best, which could spell doom for the America First agenda in Arizona.
In 2007, Kyl caved to Democrats and championed “bipartisan immigration legislation,” resulting in a near-shunning from his constituents and Republican Party representatives in Arizona.
The bill promised to increase border security, establish a new system for employee verification, create temporary-worker programs, and begin shift to a merit based immigration system – all in exchange for amnesty for 12 million illegals living in the United States.
Mercifully, the bill was never passed.
But Republican voters rejected such ham-handed immigration deals that seem to always involve rewarding illegals for breaking our laws when they elected President Donald J. Trump in 2016. Appointing Kyl, now a D.C. lobbyist, to the Senate would be stepping on the toes of Trump’s America First agenda.
And it is not just amnesty that Kyl favored.
Throughout his entire Senate career, he consistently voted to bring more foreign workers to the United States, displacing Americans who needed jobs to support their families.
For example, in 2007 he voted in favor of of increasing foreign worker importation. During the same year he voted in favor of increasing foreign worker visas. And then he voted against an amendment to protect American workers. After that, he voted against an amendment that reduced a proposed guestworker program in a bill.
In 2006, he voted for increasing foreign worker visas.
In 2005, he voted against the Byrd Amendment that would have prevented additional foreign-worker importation
In 2003, voted in favor of a bill to increase foreign-worker importation. During the same year, he voted in favor of worker importation program in Singapore “free trade” agreement, and he voted for bill providing unlimited worker visas.
Kyl’s record continues on the same way throughout the 1990’s. In fact, in 1990, he voted for a blanket bill to bring more immigrants to the United States.
It is truly amazing that these weak establishment Republicans managed to put immigrants ahead of Americans for so many years, and still allowed themselves to be branded as “racists” by the political left.
Trump likes winners. Kyl is not one of them.

New Migrant ‘Caravan’ Sets Off From Honduras, Could Arrive At US-Mexico Border Around Election Day
Are they hoping for a post-election amnesty?
A new migrant “caravan” departed the city of San Pedro Sula in Honduras on Wednesday, hoping to reach the United States in the coming weeks.
CBS News has reported that some in Central America have promoted the idea of a new caravan on social media recently. The group had been slated to leave on October 1, but travelers carrying knapsacks and minimal supplies left the staging grounds for the caravan on Wednesday night.
Initial reports indicate that 900 prospective migrants have joined the caravan. The formations have historically grown as the large groups travel through Guatemala and Mexico, although they usually taper off in size before the travelers reach the US-Mexico border.
The ‘caravan’ phenomenon reached its peak in 2018, when formations of hopeful migrants of up to 10,000 were traveling through Mexico in hopes of reaching the United States. The introduction of the Trump administration’s ‘Stay-in-Mexico’ policy has proved integral to deterring the phenomenon, requiring those who seek asylum in the country to wait in Mexico while their application is processed.
This caravan appears to be the first of its kind since the 2018 rush of caravans, and its timing is rather conspicuous. The migrants may very well arrive in the vicinity of the US-Mexico border near election day, and some may be under the impression that a tentative President-elect Joe Biden would grant them generous residence and asylum privileges.
Illegal immigration has begun to surge in recent weeks and months as an implication of the global coronavirus recession in Mexico and Central America, and the new group represents a potent health risk to those traveling within it, as well as to citizens of Guatemala, Mexico and the United States present where it is intending to travel.
They may very well be right. Biden has pledged not to deport anyone except illegal aliens who commit felonies(other than immigration violations) in the United States. This would represent a destruction of American immigration enforcement, and the caravan migrants seem only to be taking him for his word in assuming they’ll be allowed into the country.
