Is Republican Cory Gardner secretly working for the Democrats? Is he trying to sabotage the GOP in 2018? It sure seems so. As chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), Gardner has responsibility to lead the GOP to keep upper-chamber majority, but he’s making things more difficult. He’s especially trying to make things more difficult for President Trump. He’s more help to the likes of Chuck Schumer than to his own party.
President Donald Trump and Republicans seeking to retain majorities in both houses of Congress have a Rocky Mountain-sized problem on their hands, just as a crucial battle for control of the Senate heats up.
Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), seems on a mission to make Trump’s political life miserable. And the main beneficiary of the tension could be Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and other Democratic Senate incumbents and challengers.
Gardner voted late thursday for an immigration proposal authored by Schumer. The bill would have suspended immigration enforcement until June 30 and extended amnesty to as many as 10 million illegal aliens now in the U.S.
Gardner’s vote rippled through conservative and pro-Trump circles, with some political players suggesting Gardner had undercut the GOP and his own committee in the fall election, when the amnesty bill will likely become a hot issue against the Democrats. Instead, Gardner voted for a bill to flood America with illegal immigrants on a pathway to citizenship, voting, and legal employment.
“Not only do Cory Gardner and his pals in the Bush cartel stand in direct opposition to President Trump and his ‘America First’ agenda with their push for amnesty — they stand in direct opposition to the millions of Americans looking for work, whose jobs are outsourced to cheaper, low-skilled illegal immigrants from the South,” Noel Fritsch, a conservative political consultant from North Carolina, told LifeZette.
Gardner voted Thursday for an immigration proposal authored by Schumer that would flood America with illegal immigrants if it were ever enacted. The bill would have suspended immigration enforcement until June 30 and extended amnesty to as many as 10 million illegal aliens now in the U.S.
