Senators Cotton & Grassley Lose Endorsement for Supporting Amnesty for Illegals

For National Release | February 12, 2018

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is dropping the national organization’s long standing endorsements and support for Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) in response to their new Amnesty bill for millions of illegal immigrants.

Senators Cotton and Grassley plan to push an Amnesty for illegals bill today called the Secure and Succeed Act, which gives Amnesty to more than 1.8 million illegals and is backed by other Amnesty supporting Senators like James Lankford, Joni Ernst, John Cornyn, Thom Tillis, and David Perdue.

ALIPAC originally endorsed Chuck Grassley on September 21, 2010, because Grassley publicly opposed, and promised voters his opposition to, the Dream Act Amnesty which a version of is now included in this new bill he supports!

ALIPAC endorsed Tom Cotton for US Senate on October 16, 2014, because Cotton defied the RNC’s wishes and campaigned against a Democrat incumbent’s position in support of “immigration reform” Amnesty for illegals. Senator Cotton has clearly reversed his position today as well.

“Their sponsorship of the Succeed Act Amnesty bill for illegal aliens makes it clear Cotton and Grassley can’t be trusted because they have betrayed the promise to oppose Amnesty they made to their voters and groups who elected them,” declared William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “By attempting to triple Obama’s DACA Amnesty and make that abomination against our Constitution into a permanent law, these Senators and the Trump administration are betraying Republican voters on a massive scale. Americans want our existing immigration laws enforced, not new elaborate promises designed to sugar coat and pass an Amnesty bill for illegal aliens!”

ALIPAC recently conducted a national certified poll through the Barometer Polling Company, which found an average of 67% of likely GOP primary voters want the existing immigration laws of the U.S. enforced instead of any deals on DACA Amnesty.

In fact, ALIPAC’s poll found that the term “DACA” has become so toxic most likely voters in many states oppose DACA as well despite the fact that Congress is being inundated with false propaganda polls, from pro-Amnesty sources like CNN, CBS, and Harvard University, claiming most Americans want an Amnesty deal.

Barometer Polling Company’s certified poll found that 75% of the likely GOP primary voters in Senator Grassley’s home state of Iowawant existing immigration laws enforced instead of existing laws being changed to accommodate illegal immigrants as does his Succeed Act Amnesty.

Senator Tom Cotton finds himself in deeper hot water in his home state of Arkansas where 80% of the GOP voters who voted in three of the last four primaries said no to DACA Amnesty deals!

Today, the U.S. Senate plans to vote on Amnesty for illegal immigrants by stacking amendments into an open bill. This strategy is designed to keep the American public, and many Senators, in the dark about what is actually in the bill.

ALIPAC is calling on Republican Party groups and the voters of Arkansas and Iowa to begin organizing strong GOP primary challenge campaigns to replace Senators Cotton and Grassley in the U.S. Senate for their betrayal on their campaign promises to oppose Amnesty for illegal immigrants, while ALIPAC activists will be bombarding the Senate with calls today asking them to slow down the legislative process to allow the American public to learn what is really in their new Amnesty bill.
