Exclusive--Dave Brat: GOP 'Leadership Can End' Amnesty Discharge Petition 'Tomorrow' if They Wanted
Congressman Dave Brat (R-VA) says the Republican leadership and House Speaker Paul Ryan could end the so-called “discharge petition,” which would force a vote on an amnesty for illegal aliens, if they wanted to.
In an interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, Brat told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow that the Republican House leadership could stop the amnesty discharge petition — being led by a group of “Never Trump” Republicans — tomorrow by bringing Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s (R-VA) pro-American immigration bill, which is supported by President Trump, to the House floor.
“This is the issue that separates the elites from the American people,” Brat said of immigration.
“Leadership can end this tomorrow,” Brat continued, speaking of the amnesty discharge petition. “If they put forward the Goodlatte bill on the floor all this stuff goes away.”
“Trump has to take the lead on this and tell us where the lines are,” Brat said.
