Immigration Expert: ‘Zero Chance’ For Amnesty
Here’s a question. Why don’t these illegals protest in Mexico if they love it so much?

Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has “zero chance” to push amnesty through Congress this year before the summer recess, claims an immigration expert.
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, told WND that despite President Obama characterizing the recent surge of Central American youth crossing the U.S. border with Mexico illegally as a “urgent humanitarian crisis,” it’s a problem of the White House’s own making.
Krikorian predicts, consequently, a backlash will come from Democrat voters as well as Republicans.
“The truth,” Krikorian said, “is that the Obama administration has enticed Central American youth to cross the border illegally, and the surge will persist as long as the Obama administration continues to deal with the crisis as a refugee problem instead of what it is, a law enforcement crisis.”
Ryan is engaged with two other Republican lawmakers in a secretive effort to gauge support for immigration-reform legislation before the August recess. It’s Ryan, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Florida, and Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-South Carolina, who are working on the idea of immigration reform right now.
Krikorian told WND that as thousands of illegal alien children from Central America begin rejoining their illegal alien parents and relatives in the U.S., the additional burden on state and local budgets risks creating a bipartisan voter reaction.
