    AS IMMIGRATION PUSH STALLS, BILLIONAIRE SUPPORTERS SUDDENLY SILENT


    Last year, several billionaires were busy putting their money where their mouths were in an attempt to push amnesty, disguised as "immigration reform," on a Congress that everyone thought was ripe for the issue. But ever since the border crisis erupted, forcing Congress to adjourn for the summer without taking action, those billionaires have suddenly gone silent.

    As noted by Politico, earlier this year, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, billionaire Michael Bloomberg, and Citigroup executive Carlos Gutierrez were all pumping millions into the push for amnesty, but with the upcoming midterm elections looming, not one of these billionaires is buying ad time to push the issue.

    One of those involved in rallying Republicans to the issue, for instance, has been straightforward in explaining why his group is laying low.
    As Charlie Spies, one of the organizers of Republicans for Immigration Reform, told Politico, "The problem at the border and the president’s rhetoric on executive action have totally poisoned the well." He added, "I don’t think anybody believes anything can happen this year."
