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.

President Trump is Deporting Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors to Prevent Spread of Coronavirus
Left-wing groups are agitating to stop the President from deporting these illegals.
President Donald Trump has started deporting unaccompanied minors found trying to illegally cross the U.S. border in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, and liberals are enraged as a result.
The administration is enforcing a March 20 order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states that no unauthorized individual could cross the border during the coronavirus pandemic.
The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed that the CDC policy is being applied to migrant children at the border, according to BuzzFeed News.
“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” a CBP official told BuzzFeed News in a statement.
“When minors are encountered without adult family members, CBP works closely with their home countries to transfer them to the custody of government officials and reunite them with their families quickly and safely, if possible,” they added.
Left-wing activists who support the migrant trafficking industry are up in arms that the Trump administration is actually enforcing the law and putting Americans first during an unprecedented pandemic.
“Children arriving at the border, many of whom have endured unimaginable harm at home and on their journey, are the most vulnerable group encountered by border officials. Unaccompanied children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking,” said Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, a policy analyst at the American Immigration Council. “The answer to coronavirus cannot be to put children in harm’s way.”
Eleanor Acer, who works as the refugee protection director for Human Rights First, said that the Trump administration is “using” the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse “to advance their long-standing goal of overturning US laws protecting vulnerable children and people seeking asylum.”
During the crisis, the number of referrals for unaccompanied minors who arrive illegally into the U.S. has dropped precipitously. Referrals from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have dropped 78 percent over the past month, with only four unaccompanied minor aliens being funneled toward the US refugee agency on Sunday.
“This is a drastic drop in referrals, especially compared to 2019, when well over a hundred unaccompanied children were referred to ORR each day,” said Sarah Pierce, an analyst with the Migration Policy Institute.
“While it likely reflects decreased arrivals at the southern border, it also suggests that many are being refused entry, in direct contravention of federal law,” she added.
The administration’s opponents claim that the President is not following the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), a law that was signed by former President George W. Bush in 2008 that allows illegals to flood the border.
“Reports that DHS is not following the TVPRA are deeply troubling,” wrote Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), in a letter issued to acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.
“We have an obligation to ensure the health and safety of these children. Children do not have to be put in harm’s way to protect us from the coronavirus pandemic. DHS has the ability and capacity to protect both these children and the public. We request that DHS stop this practice immediately,” they added.
Even during a coronavirus crisis, the far-left Democrats are still refusing to shut down the border even if it means the pandemic will worsen as a direct result.
