GOP Rep Threatens Govt Shutdown If No Amnesty

There is one Florida representative who is willing to join the Democrats and shut down the government at the end of the year. Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) demands DACA protection or bust. Mr. Curbelo is not particular how the job gets done as long as millions of illegal aliens are protected from losing their DACA status. I am sure that his Florida constituency is happy with this stance. The demographics alone account for that position. Are there any other GOPers out there that owe their allegiance to supporters of DACA? 

As Written By John Binder for Breitbart: 

Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) announced today that he will vote to shut down the federal government at the end of the year if the GOP spending bill does not include legislation to give amnesty to potentially 3.5 million illegal aliens in the United States.

In a speech to the pro-immigration IMPAC Fund, Curbelo threatened to help Democrats shut down the government if the 3.5 million illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are not given amnesty to permanently remain in the U.S.

“I will make some news here of particular interest to our friends in the fourth estate,” Curbelo said, according to the Hill. “I am announcing today that I will not support any appropriations bill that funds the government beyond December 31st unless we get this DACA issue resolved.”

“And by the way, it doesn’t have to be included in the spending bill, but it has to get done,” Curbelo said. “Again, as long as it gets done I’m okay with a stand-alone bill, if it’s part of another package, let’s just get it done…..
