Raul Labrador: Majority Leader McCarthy's Future Depends on Amnesty Fight

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy won’t disappoint Republican voters during the argument over immigration policy and amnesty for illegals, said Rep. Raul Labrador, one of four GOP co-authors of a major immigration and amnesty policy bill.

But McCarthy stunned immigration reformers at the January 9 White House meeting when Democratic Sen. Diane Feinstein asked Trump to endorse a quick, no-strings ‘DACA’ amnesty while postponing border security measures to a subsequent debate.

McCarthy also attended the January 12 White House meeting when Trump forcefully rejected the amnesty-plus deal offered by Durbin and GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham.

The reality is that McCarthy — just like [House Speaker] Paul Ryan — understands the volatility of the issue.

Remember, this was one of the issues that brought down [House Speaker] John Boehner … Boehner started moving further and further to the left on immigration and that is when people started realizing it was time for a change of leadership.
