By Julia Hahn. Sen. Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama is warning that the 2016 election could determine whether the Gang of Eight, a group of senators who pushed for allowing greater immigration, runs the White House.
Presidential contender Sen. Marco Rubio was a key member of the Gang. Sessions is emphasizing that powerful forces behind the Gang of Eight are only getting started, and the same special interest coalition is already planning its next push for open borders.
Sessions began his remarks with an effort to correct the record on claims from Senator Rubio about Senator Sen. Ted Cruz.
“Every step of the way Ted Cruz was on my side and fought this legislation all the way through,” Sessions declared. “People need to remember this because this election is going to decide– did the crowd who pushed that bill, are they in the White House? And will they be able to continue their agenda? Or will somebody else be there who will say, ‘No.’”
Sessions explained that despite the American people’s clear repudiation of their plan, the Gang of Eight remains determined to implement their border-opening immigration agenda as soon as they have another chance. “I will say one more time,” Sessions proclaimed, “They are not through. They are determined. They’ve got money, interest groups, power, media that support this agenda and the next president who gets elected is going to determine what kind of immigration system we have.” (Read more from “Jeff Sessions Just Issued a Major Warning About Marco Rubio – People Need to Realize This” HERE)
FLASHBACK: Sean Hannity Supported a ‘Pathway to Citizenship’ Before ‘Gang of 8’ Bill
By Derek Hunter. Talk radio and Fox News host Sean Hannity is one of the biggest opponents of amnesty for illegal immigrants, but that wasn’t always the case.
Hannity, who has anti-immigration candidate Donald Trump on his shows more frequently than any other presidential hopeful and has been a staunch critic of Florida Senator Marco Rubio‘s past on the issue, supported a pathway to full citizenship for illegals in late as 2012 — months before the “Gang of 8” amnesty bill was written and when the New York Times says Rubio “pushed for immigration reform with conservative media.”
On his radio show, Hannity regularly talks of how he’s asked Rubio if his involvement with the “Gang of 8” immigration bill was a mistake, something Rubio won’t directly admit. But Hannity himself supported amnesty in the bill long before then. (Read more from “FLASHBACK: Sean Hannity Supported a ‘Pathway to Citizenship’ Before ‘Gang of 8’ Bill” HERE)
