12/16/17, Maine First Media Staff Report,
Both of Maine’s U.S. Senators are rated “Lean Yes” amnesty and chain migration from Numbers USA.
According to the immigration watch-dog group, both the democrat in Independent clothing, Sen. Angus King and RINO Sen. Susan Collins received the open-borders rating due to their votes in favor of the “Gang of 8” Amnesty bill (S.744).
The Gang of 8 bill was a 2013 proposal sponsored by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). It was created by Sen. Schumer and a bipartisan coalition of 7 other open-borders politicians, including:
- Michael Bennet (D-CO)
- Dick Durbin (D-IL)
- Jeff “The” Flake (R-AZ)
- Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
- John McCain (R-AZ)
- Bob Menendez (D-NJ)
- Marco Rubio (R-FL)
Among other negative impacts, the amnesty bill would have granted Chain Migration rights to the illegals the bill was granting amnesty to.
Both Sen. King and Sen. Collins voted for the bill as it passed the Senate 68-32. Fortunately, the demographic-altering legislation died in the House, where it was never brought to a vote.
The Gang of 8’s amnesty bill of 2013 is a particularly good reference point on Sen. Collin’s and Sen. King’s likelihood of supporting Chain Migration and Amnesty for 800,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients — because the Gang of 8 bill involved both amnesty for a larger and broader portion of illegal aliens and it also provided Chain Migration rights to those receiving the new amnesty.
Both Sen. Collins and Sen. King have been vocal in their support for amnesty for DACA recipients. Their track record proves it is unlikely they would support an end to Chain Migration or any other serious immigration reforms.
More than 250,000 foreigners flood into the United States each year due to Chain Migration. Watch the video above for more information on how Chain Migration works.
