Luther Strange RUNS from DACA Amnesty Questions UPDATE!


Battle of the titans. The Establishment v. the regular guy? It is a strange GOP race in Alabama – no pun intended – as the GOP establishment swirls around Trump’s support for Luther Strange who is the temp guy for Session’s seat, and Judge Roy Moore.The rising political star of Judge Roy Moore in Alabama is another surprise in a political season defined by the unexpected and the unconventional.

UPDATE: More on Luther Stranger here.

Luther Strange Lobbied for Trade Deal That Drained Thousands of Alabama Jobs to Honduras, Mexico

Back to the original post:

On Aug. 15, Moore finished ahead of Senator Luther Strange in a primary election to pick the Republican candidate who will run in November’s general election to fill the seat of former Senator Jeff Sessions. Sessions vacated the seat to become the nation’s attorney general.

Sen. Luther Strange is running from questions about his possible support for the Democrats’ huge “Dreamer” amnesty, which would provide citizenship to at least 3.3 million illegals and also cut wages in his home state of Alabama.

Strange’s campaign website ducks the high-profile issue, saying only that:

It is our duty to uphold and enforce immigration law. Individuals who enter our country illegally should not receive the benefits that taxpaying Americans do. Immediate deportation of criminal aliens, building President Trump’s border wall, and cutting off funding for sanctuary cities are all effective means to enforce America’s laws and strengthen its borders.

Enforcing immigration law is also crucial to protecting Americans from terrorists seeking entry into our country under false pretenses. Luther Strange stands with President Trump and supports banning refugees in terrorist countries from entering our borders.

One Alabama constituent received a similarly evasive answer, according to a report in Alabama Today:

Jack Kemp of Fosters, Ala. posted Strange’s email response on his Facebook page Tuesday, concerned that the Senator supports the Dream Act as he did not outright refute it in the email.

The reported response from Strange’s office says “Currently, this [amnesty] bill is in the Senate Judiciary Committee. I do not serve on that committee, but if this bill comes to the Senate floor for debate and a vote, I will keep your views in mind.” The Facebook post did not say Strange would oppose a DACA amnesty.

Strange offered a similarly vague description of his DACA-amnesty views in a radio ad which criticizes Judge Roy Moore, his primary rival, for not knowing about the “dreamer’ program. The radio ad declared that Strange “is proud to stand beside President Trump who understands how serious it is to stop illegal immigration and enforce our nation’s laws.” The ad did not say that Strange would oppose a DACA amnesty.

    I don’t know much about either of these two guys but it has been interesting to see Trump coming out for Strange and many others coming out for Moore. I don’t understand what Trump has to gain by getting involved in this race, but it does look like he is supporting somebody who is in favor of DACA and that is telling.

      Nothing to gain by mixing in it. I am with you. The Judge was hard on the LGBT issue…and fell on his sword over it.. But let the people decide.

    Very much ashamed of my president on his support of this man.Have you looked at McConnell’s approval rating in all cases. Moore is a man of principle, what happen to this with Trump, a man I contributed money to his campaign.

      McMaster is leading him astray…and the deep state is working hard to destroy his Presidency. He is counting on his children way too much.

    They say…

    Luther Strange in his temp Senate seat has voted 100% Trump’s way

    This may be one of McConnell’s tricks up his sleeve to get Trump’s support

    Corker who’s on board with Strange just raised a few eyebrows with what looks like a shady business deal

    Judge Moore they say is a difficult man who does not negotiate its his way or no way

    Sometimes…

    I’m just not sure who to trust! 󾓦

      I read the Corker story this morning.. a convoluted and not easy to follow story… or poorly written if the one I saw. The fact that he is McConnell’s man makes me suspect. Moore will die on his sword… so…. As Peter’s comment.. Trump’s kiddies pick no doubt
