    Report: Most #NeverTrump Defecting Republicans Supported Amnesty


    The main issue the so called Never Trumpers is really illegal immigration. Like Hillary Clinton they want to flood the country with foreign labor to satisfy their campaign contributors. Greed is their motivation not concern for the little people or the destitute. Now we understand why the GOP leadership did so little to stop Obama when they had the power of the purse over government agencies. Did you not think it odd that this year’s Federal Budget got approved so quietly? Paul Ryan, the super negotiator? Or Paul Ryan, the one who cut a deal with Obama to help defeat Trump?

  2. Agree in general, esp on the immigration point. As to the budget, I think Ryan was more worried about GOP getting blamed for shutdown and hurting Congress-Senate races than about Trump benefitting. Despite the energy Trump’s people have, don’t think it would benefit Trump anyway, as there would be the danger of motivating Dems otherwise complacent or hostile to Hillary.
