‘Amnesty’ Republican Encounters Resistance at the Border

Rep. Will Hurd, a Texas Republican whose sprawling district spans a third of the U.S.-Mexico border, joined Democrats this week in voting to grant amnesty to more than 2 million illegal aliens. It wasn’t the first time.

Since 2017, Hurd has repeatedly cosponsored amnesty legislation. He also has voted to increase H-2B visas for unskilled foreign workers and supports other imported-labor initiatives.

On the “nay” side, Hurd voted against the “Securing America’s Future Act of 2018,” to require that all federal, state and local agencies comply with the provisions of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act. He voted to block President Donald Trump’s emergency order for more wall funding, and even branded the border crisis a “myth.”

Apparently he's making a good deal of money off of the invasion.
