John McCain and Chuck Schumer are the two biggest threats to Donald Trump’s agenda.
Schumer is leading the Democrats in unprecedented obstruction and McCain is stabbing conservatives in the back by voting against the President’s priorities.
Now they are teaming up together to orchestrate the ultimate betrayal of America.
Liberals cheered when John McCain provided the decisive vote to kill the GOP’s efforts to repeal Obamacare.
Chuck Schumer led the applause.
Now he and McCain are preparing to take their treachery to the next level.
Schumer said McCain has told him now is the time to pass amnesty legislation.
The Arizona Republic reports:
A week after his dramatic call for bipartisanship on Capitol Hill, Sen. John McCain says he wants to revive a long-standing attempt to reform the nation’s immigration system when he returns to Washington.
Before leaving Washington for treatment for brain cancer, McCain, R-Ariz., said he broached the idea with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The two collaborated on unsuccessful immigration legislation in 2013 as part of the bipartisan effort known as the “Gang of Eight.”
President Donald Trump’s goal of building a U.S.-Mexico border wall might provide an opening for a bigger bargain on the issue, McCain said.
“Immigration reform is one of the issues I’d like to see resolved,” McCain told The Arizona Republic in a Thursday interview. “I’ve got to talk to him (Schumer) about when would be the best time. I think there are all kinds of deals to be made out there. I really do.”
Donald Trump won the GOP nomination and the Presidency by making opposition to illegal immigration and amnesty for illegal aliens the centerpiece of his campaign.
But that hasn’t deterred McCain.
McCain also stated in his interview with the Arizona Republic’s editorial board that he is committed to passing amnesty once Congress returns from recess.
The Arizona Republic reports:
“In the meeting with the newspaper’s editorial board, McCain said Schumer is in agreement about the need to return to immigration reform.
“Basically it’s what we passed last time, brought up to date with the new challenges, like opioids,” McCain said. “It’s still there. We got 68 votes, I think, the last time. I don’t think that’s going to be any different next time.”
One longtime champion of comprehensive immigration reform applauded McCain’s return to the fray, despite the long odds.
“It’s conceivable that a group of bipartisan-minded Republicans in the Senate can make common cause with bipartisan-minded Democrats.”
“It’s difficult to imagine Trump signing a comprehensive immigration reform bill because he’s so focused on stoking his base,” said Frank Sharry, the executive director of the liberal-leaning national pro-reform organization America’s Voice.
“But you can see how more and more people are moving away from Trump as his poll ratings sink, as his lying becomes endemic, and his temperament is so obviously juvenile,” he said. “It’s conceivable that a group of bipartisan-minded Republicans in the Senate can make common cause with bipartisan-minded Democrats.”
McCain has made a career out of betraying Republicans.
Now it appears he is teaming up with Chuck Schumer for one final act of sabotage by working to pass amnesty.
