Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) on Thursday said he does not believe Republicans inability to pass immigration reform will hurt the party in the midterms.
"Americans care more about Americans," King explained to Talking Points Memo.
To be certain he is just reemphasizing the GOP mid term strategy, which is actually "White Americans care more about White Americans"
And of course he hopes everyone forgets about this stain on our nation.
King told TPM that Trump's executive order to end the policy that separated families at the border eased much of the pressure on lawmakers to act on immigration.
“I think it will tone down,” he said. “This immediate crisis seems to be going away. And if they aren’t arresting families every weekend, then yeah, it’s going away, from the public eye. And if it’s not in the public eye, if you don’t have the dramatic footage, there is always another issue that comes along. There’s a new issue every week.”
But probably not because of things like this
Trump caved on Wednesday and signed an order that stopped children from being separated from their parents when they were caught crossing the border illegally.
But it remains unclear how or when the over 2,000 children already separated from their families will be reunited.
And also the fact that so many of the GOP/Right have gone on the record as being fucking monsters. That has a tendency to stick with folks
