Steve King: GOP Leadership Hell-Bent on DACA Amnesty, Listening to What the Donors Want

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) says the Republican leadership — led by House Speaker Paul Ryan — is hell-bent on pushing an amnesty for potentially millions of illegal aliens while failing to stop a discharge petition that would force a vote on an amnesty.
In an interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight, King told Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollack that GOP leadership is not only pushing for an immigration deal that gives amnesty to illegal aliens without reducing legal immigration, but also says they are not working to effectively stop an amnesty discharge petition.
Nobody on the leadership level is even uttering the words that we should move legislation that doesn’t include amnesty. They postured themselves today as if it’s a foregone conclusion that amnesty for DACA recipients has to be the leading issue on this. And we have no mandate to provide amnesty for anybody coming into this past election. And by the way, President Trump had a mandate and his campaign promise was to end DACA. We thought that would happen at noon on January 20, 2017, at the moment he swore into office. We found out about five or six weeks later that they were still issuing DACA permits and extending them. [Emphasis added]
[The pro-amnesty Republicans are] hearing that they need to provide amnesty because there’s been a number of major Republican donors that have said ‘I’m only going to donate money to people that support DACA amnesty.’ And of course, that’d be the last reason I’d ever support it. But it might be one of the reasons that others might. [Emphasis added]
