Amnesty in the House of Representatives…Tuesday-VOTE Dean Young in #AL01!

Electing Dean Young will send a message the GOP Establishmant cannot ignore!

The Washington GOP Establishment is caving again…this time led by RINO Rep. Jeff Denham of California:

Roll Call Reports:

“I’ve got a card in my pocket of people I’m going to talk to on the floor each time I go down to vote,” the California Republican said in an interview with CQ Roll Call. “There are a lot of theories on how many Republicans we have out there. My job is to find those members.”

Denham is on a mission to prove that there’s substantial support within the House Republican Conference to move an immigration overhaul before the year’s end — one that includes a framework to provide citizenship for the millions of immigrants in the United States illegally.

Now, Denham is daring other members to join him.

“I’d like to have half a dozen members this week and next week sign onto the bill,” Denham told CQ Roll Call in an interview Tuesday evening. “I’d like to have some real momentum as soon as we come back [from recess] so we can start scheduling hearings. And then, the first part of December, I’d like to see this on the floor.”

He may sound overly ambitious, but if his co-sponsorship was designed to create more hospitable waters for fellow Republicans, it might actually be working. On Tuesday, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida became the second GOP lawmaker to plant a flag of support for the Democrats’ bill; on Wednesday, Rep. David Valadao of California became the third.

“The more Republicans we can get on this, the more we can show that this is a bipartisan bill, the more it will elevate the issue and bring it to the floor in the short time we have left,” Denham said.

Dean Young is fighting pro-amnesty Chamber of Commerce-backed Bradley Byrne this upcoming Tuesday. Dean Young could use all the help he can get! If he wins, it would send a message that Americans will NOT stand for amnesty before the rule of law in this country.
