Front Group Pushing Amnesty Hired Illegal Organizer

One of the groups advocating for mass amnesty, including the grotesque Senate-passed S.744, is a labor union front group called the Restaurant Opportunities Center. ROC is pursuing loopholes in Obamacare to give taxpayer-funded health care to illegal aliens.ROC, it turns out, deserves special opprobrium for not only advocating on behalf of illegal aliens, but for employing a prominent one, apparently knowingly. Making ROC even more detestable, ROC collects federal funds, which essentially frees up its own bucks for its offices in Washington and elsewhere. More on the federal dole later.

Open-Borders Religious Front Loses Prominent Member

Like the scales falling from the Apostle Paul's eyes, a prominent member of the Evangelical Immigration Table has distanced himself from the front group after learning of its funding by liberal atheist billionaire George Soros through the open-borders National Immigration Forum.Eric Metaxas, who penned stellar biographies of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and William Wilberforce, has cut his ties to the NIF's project that gives the impression Christians broadly support mass amnesty and the Senate amnesty bill in particular.

Hoeven-Corker Amendment and the Pelosi Rule

It's ba-ack! The ugliest, most monstrous procedure of legislative sausage making is now being employed by senators on both sides of the aisle. They're resurrecting this approach to hurry a vote on a major, humongous amendment to a major, controversial bill.Then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (R-Calif.) infamously said of the Obamacare legislation that lawmakers needed to rush to "pass the bill so you can find out what's in it". I'm dubbing this the Pelosi Rule — an inadvisable, reckless approach that should never, ever be allowed for justifying the rushed passage of legislation under an arbitrary deadline.

Soros' Prophets of Baal

George Soros' dollars are funding a pep rally for the Senate's obese amnesty bill, S. 744. On Wednesday, while the Senate is expected to be debating the legislation, Soros' pet project, "Bibles, Badges, and Business" (BBB), will gather its modern-day prophets of Baal on Capitol Hill to try to create the impression that Christians, law enforcement, and business owners favor mass amnesty, open borders, and the disadvantaging of American citizens who can't find full-time jobs (rightly known as "the least of these").

Senate Neros Fiddling Away

Let's state the bottom line about S. 744, the Schumer-Rubio-Obama amnesty bill: This legislation is fundamentally flawed and cannot be amended in any way that makes it acceptable. The central design of the bill is mass amnesty immediately, enforcement never, gallons of red ink committed to be spent for the rest of the amnesty recipients' and new immigrants' lives, and further opening the floodgates to irresponsible levels of immigration.

Where Ought Christians Come Down on the Schumer-Rubio-Obama Amnesty?

I'm not going to answer the question posed in the headline of this blog. I leave the answer to the consciences of individual Americans who practice the Christian faith, based on how the Holy Spirit guides them according to the Bible's teachings.What I'm going to do, however, is share four biblical principles I, as a follower of Jesus whose calling has been to the Washington policy arena, have derived for addressing such matters of prudential judgment. I'll apply those criteria to the amnesty issue and the bill presently before the Senate, S.744.
