Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies, is reported by Breitbart News last night to have made the claim that Paul Ryan (R-WI) is the “most open-borders” member of Congress currently in office. He says Ryan is even more in favor of amnesty than liberal members of Congress like Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), who is pushing for Preisdent Obama to stop all deportations of illegal aliens.
Breitbart News reports:
"Paul Ryan is probably the most ideologically committed open-borders person in Congress. I would say even more than the Democrats,” Krikorian said in an interview with American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios, One News Now reports.
One News Now’s Chad Groening added that Krikorian explained that “Ryan's support is not based on money but is a ‘quasi-religious principle’ that limiting the number of people allowed into the United States is wrong.”
Groening predicted that even with support from Republicans like Ryan, he believes it's unlikely Congress will pass amnesty this year. But, as suggested by Erick Erickson and covered in this column yesterday, Speaker John Boehner may be planning a move to pass amnesty later next year after the deadline for filing candidacies in state primaries has pass for next year's elections.
It appears that even Democrats and the White House are putting a lot of their hopes of passing amnesty on the influence of Paul Ryan to round up enough Republican votes to help pass the bipartisan Democrat and liberal Republican sponsored “comprehensive immigration reform” legislation in the House.
Amnesty is also getting strong support from big business interests, who are applying strong pressure on Speaker Boehner and many House Republicans to get some version of amnesty passed because more immigration creates a labor surplus which leads to lower wages, a positive factor for employers seeking to cut their costs. The interest of cheap labor stands in stark contrast to the interests of creating a growing Middle Class, which would be more well served by economic and immigration policies that create a labor shortage. A labor shortage would naturally (without raising the minimum wage) drive up wages because employers would have to compete for the labor of fewer prospective employees.
