After years of pushing amnesty deals and funding every one of Obama’s open-borders initiatives, House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is campaigning for re-election on a promise to secure the border.
The race is tightening between Ryan and his challenger, Paul Nehlen. Ryan was once ahead by 40 points, but has now dropped to only 43% support among voters, and Nehlen has risen to 32%.
With the Wisconsin primary only 3 weeks away, Ryan is flooding his Wisconsin district with mailers, urging voters to support him in the August 9 election.
The mailers promise to keep America safe. “That means securing the border, confronting Islamic terrorism, and tackling new threats by stopping them from reaching our shores.”
Breitbart states that Ryan has spent two decades pushing for policies that would effectively open America’s borders, and, as House Speaker, he has passed an omnibus spending bill that completely funded Obama’s open borders agenda.
Ryan voted to fund Obama’s still-running 2012 executive amnesty for illegal aliens who allegedly entered the country as minors. Ryan’s bill also rewarded sanctuary cities with federal grants. He also provided funding for the resettlement of illegal aliens within the United States, the release of criminal aliens, and tax credits for illegal aliens.
Ryan’s spending bill also funded an expansion of Muslim migration, bringing the total number of visas for Muslim migrants this year (temporary and permanent) to nearly 300,000.
Ryan has voted to increase Muslim migration— despite the fact that seven out of ten GOP Wisconsin voters want to see Muslim migration into the United States paused.
Ryan’s primary challenger, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, slammed Ryan for the deceptive mailers. “The only thing more disturbing than Paul Ryan’s refusal to secure the border is the extent to which he is comfortable lying about it,” Nehlen said.
Ryan has campaigned with pro-amnesty, pro-illegal immigrant activist Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) for years, pushing “immigration reform”, and is seen below appearing with Gutierrez in 2013 saying America is not about borders, it is about an idea. He promises to fix the broken immigration system, by making it easier for immigrants to come to the United States.
