With everything going on across the country right now, it’s hard for many Americans to actually see what lawmakers are passing while most are not paying attention.
This is especially true given Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats recently passed a highly controversial piece of legislation in the House of Representatives — and dozens of Republican lawmakers joined them to support the measure.
Nearly all House Democrats and 34 Republicans voted to approve an amnesty for illegal farm workers.
The bill, H.R. 5038, would likely provide amnesty to more than a million illegal aliens and subsidizes farm companies that hire more H-2A visa workers instead of hiring Americans.
Three Democrats voted against the bill, while 226 Democrats voted for the bill.
In large part, the bill gives amnesty to almost 1 million illegals working on farms in America, subsidizes agriculture companies and investors with a huge amnesty-for-visa-worker swap, farming wages will take a hit, and countless Americans will lose their jobs.
This is nothing short of a direct betrayal of Trump’s “Hire American” economy, which places an extreme emphasis on passing measures that benefit Americans — not illegal aliens.

U.S. taxpayers can’t afford to absorb Mexico and the Central Americas.
This bill shouldn’t make it through the Senate, but if it does, and many are already calling on Trump to veto it.
This pro-amnesty is bad for Americans, and it’s disappointing to see so many Republicans throwing U.S. citizens under the bus.
When the choice is between Americans and illegals — the choice should be more than clear.
It shouldn’t make it through the Senate but if it does and Trump doesn’t veto it; it will be very disappointing.
