Former President George W. Bush and mega millionaire GOP donators with the Koch Network are working with President Joe Biden to pass amnesty and a cheap-labor bill through Congress.
“We’ve got a coalition of like-minded people working this issues, Bush told Hugh Hewitt.
“Many of them are involved on Capitol Hill. So the Bush Center is spearheading a reform movement. It’s quiet except for this book [of paintings], which makes it not quiet. … We’re talking to people about, you know, what needs to be done. I mean, the Koch Brothers, for example, I know that’s a word [Koch] that scares a lot of people on the left, but they’re very much in favor of a rational immigration policy. And they’re putting money behind it, and they’re pushing hard. … Now there hasn’t been interparty outreach, yet. But maybe it’s not quite ripe. My view is if the President is sincere about this, he ought to sit down with, you know, some rational Republicans. But … he’s got to finish his initial agenda, however. He’s got a lot on his plate right now. But eventually, I think there’s a deal to be done.”
The Koch network includes a lot of Republican donors who would make more money hire foreign workers than hiring Americans like former President Trump forced them to do. Bush seems to not care about the economic impact amnesty would have on Americans.
Bush didn’t name any of the “rational Republicans” that might join him however, a small group of Republican Senators to include Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX), Susan Collins (R-ME), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Mike Rounds (R-SD), met with amnesty advocate, Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill).
Bush’s decision to support amnesty during his presidency ended up giving him a 33% approval rating. One of the flaws of the Bush doctrine was that rhino Republicans felt amnesty was the only way they could keep the majority. The though was the party that would grant amnesty would get the allegiance of the hispanic community. During the 2020 election that theory was put to bed, former President Trump received more support from the hispanic community than any other Republican presidential nominee ever. The only area Trump lost support was from white snotty liberals and elitist.
