‘Charles Koch is a businessman, and he likes to get his money’s-worth…’
(Breitbart) John and Andy Schlafly, sons of late conservative icon Phyllis, responded Wednesday to plutocrats Charles Koch and Tim Cook who teamed up last week to demand an amnesty for up to 3.5 million illegal aliens be foisted on the American people before he end of the year.
In an op-ed for the Washington Post, Koch — co-inheritor of the Koch Industries fortune and a megadonor to the Republican establishment — and Cook, CEO of Apple, demanded that Americans “embrace that diversity” of mass immigration that would come with an amnesty for the roughly 800,000 to 3.5 million illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for the President Barack Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Koch and Cook wrote:
These are the “dreamers” — children of undocumented immigrants who are working, in countless ways, to make the United States stronger. Unless Congress acts, this holiday season might be the last one the dreamers get to spend in the country they love and call home.
We must do better….
The pro-immigration plutocrats also revealed in the op-ed that both of their companies, Koch Industries and Apple, employ DACA illegal aliens, even going as far as to write that their business “depends” on having illegal aliens with “diverse backgrounds and perspectives” on their payrolls.
John and Andy Schlafly penned a counter-op-ed to Koch’s and Cook’s demand for a quick DACA amnesty, saying the issue could be a “litmus test” for Republicans looking for big campaign donations from the big business lobby. They wrote:
Charles Koch is a businessman, and he likes to get his money’s-worth when he spends it. After striking out the past two years with their political agenda, the Koch network of mega-donors could be making support of DACA a litmus test for Republican primary candidates in the 2018 election cycle.
Republican candidates would be wise to decline, just as candidate Trump declined support by the Koch network last year, and won anyway on a platform of opposing illegal immigration….
