Tillis-Lankford Amnesty Proposal is a Betrayal of the American People

When headlines were published last week about conservative senators having a merit-based immigration bill, it was plausible they might have been senators promoting legislation that imposed a merit-based green card system. Instead, the stories were about the Succeed Act, a massive amnesty proposal from Sens. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), the cheap labor lobby’s favorite senator; Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who has spent decades voting in favor of mass amnesty bills that include the 2013 Gang of Eight proposal; and James Lankford (R-Okla.), who had virtually no record on immigration until now.
Channeling Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Tillis took to the podium with a straight face and misrepresented to the American people. The Succeed Act “is about the children," he said. "It’s completely merit based. It ensures fairness. There’s no skipping in line.” He could be forgiven for a little hubris in front of an approving media, but Tillis has memorialized these misrepresentations on his website.
On two pages of disinformation, the senators describe their bill as “a fair and merit-based solution to address the legal uncertainty facing [illegal alien] children” that “clarifies the law,” “isn’t a free pass,” “deters illegal immigration” and prevents chain migration because the bill is a “solution” for illegal alien children, “and only the children.”
It’s time to set the record straight. The bill grants immediate amnesty to millions of adult illegal aliens, and eventually puts them on a path to citizenship with the ability to sponsor law-breaking family members for green cards.

Burr and Tillis - what a couple of disasters these 2 guys have been. These are leftover neocons from the Bush era. NC needs to clear these guys out. We're going to start working on it.
