Tea party warns of ‘bait and switch’ on immigration

August 4, 2013

Tea party groups on Friday warned House Republicans they fear GOP leaders are preparing to “pull a bait and switch” that will ultimately allow a broad immigration bill pass that legalizes illegal immigrants.

The 75 signers, which include major tea party and conservative organizations, said they worry House Republican leaders will try to pass a narrow, conservative immigration bill but will then agree to negotiate with the Senate and, in the end, will accept the Senate’s broader bill — including what the groups termed an “amnesty” for illegal immigrants.

The groups urged lawmakers to tell GOP leaders not to enter into those negotiations with the Senate.

“We are calling on each member of the House of Representatives to take immediate action to halt the Senate’s ill-conceived amnesty bill,” wrote the groups.

The letter is in part because it comes just a few days after nearly 100 top Republican donors and former Bush administration officials penned their own letter urging House Republicans to pass a bill that does include legalization.
