Amazingly, quite a few Republicans have been willing to drink the Kool-Aid. Among them are two Colorado Republican House members, Representatives Mike Coffman and Cory Gardner (who is seeking a seat in the Senate). Both have come out in favor of amnesty as a cornerstone component of “comprehensive immigration reform.”
But supporting mass amnesty is apparently not enough. Coffman and Gardner refuse to subvert the Constitution and support the Obama administration’s moves to implement amnesties that were never enacted, or unilateral decisions to suspend deportation mandated by existing statutes. As their reward, the George Soros-supported group, America’s Voice, purchased all of the ad space on Friday on the Denver Post’s homepage attacking Coffman and Gardner.
The banner ad, asks, “What are Rep. Cory Gardner & Mike Coffman doing to pass immigration reform? Nothing.” Another ad encourages the paper’s online readers to, “Call Rep. Mike Coffman and Rep. Cory Gardner and tell them to stop blocking immigration reform!” A third charges that, “Republicans like Rep. Mike Coffman and Rep. Cory Gardner are blocking immigration reform and voting to deport DREAMers.”
As if that weren’t thanks enough for their efforts, another Soros-backed group, We Belong Together, Gardner and Nevada Republican Mark Amodei, another amnesty supporter, had their offices taken over by protestors.
Instead of feeling like they have fallen into the warm embrace of the amnesty lobby, perhaps these guys are starting to wonder whether they have fallen into the clutches of the amnesty mafia.
