Pro-mass immigration GOP mega-donor billionaires the Koch brothers are urging Republicans in Congress to take a deal on immigration from Democrats that would give amnesty to some two million illegal aliens in the U.S.
In a letter to Republican and Democrat congressional leaders, according to the Washington Post, three executives of Koch-backed organizations — Freedom Partners, Americans for Prosperity, and the LIBRE Initiative — are telling the GOP to “seize” the opportunity to give amnesty to potentially millions of illegal aliens who have been shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The Koch executives’ letter states:
We believe this is a reasonable proposal — one that should be supported by the president and members of Congress in both parties. It’s now time to cast aside partisan differences and support a solution that provides certainty for dreamers, who were brought as children to the United States and seek the opportunity to apply their skills and talents in this country. [Emphasis added]
For months, sources told Breitbart News that the Koch brothers — who have gone so far as to release an ad campaign in which they call illegal aliens “patriots” — were pushing the Trump administration to accept an amnesty deal that would allow at least 1.8 million illegal aliens enrolled and eligible DACA recipients to permanently stay in the U.S.
