(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Immediately after bailing out drowning Democrats on their gun grab, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, yet another RINO addicted to selling out his constituents, has suggested that a Republican capitulation on immigration is next on his list, according to a saccharine Tweet published by Huffington Post reporter Igor Bobic.
More positive ~~ vibes ~~ on Senate floor.
A smiling Cornyn tells Padilla, “First guns, now it’s immigration”
“That’s right, we’re going to do it,” Sinema added

“First guns, now it’s immigration,” a jubilant Cornyn was heard to tell Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Calif., after the Senate voted 64-34 advance the “bipartisan” gun control bill, just one hour after the text of the 80-page bill was released to members.

Fourteen Republicans supported the bill, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Mitt Romney, a group that contains a number of notorious immigration squishes, according to The Hill.
Cornyn told Breitbart News that he was joking about immigration.
“The Democrats and their allies in the media really can’t take a joke,” Cornyn said. “There’s no secret amnesty bill.”
But, as Mickey Kaus has said, “stay paranoid.”
Cornyn is one of the key proponents of immigration “reform” in the GOP, and has continually initiated “bipartisan” talks with Democrats on the subject, according to Breitbart.
Cornyn faced calls for his resignation in response to his implied open-borderism, and, based on the response of his constituents to capitulation on gun control, appears likely to face opposition when his current term expires in 2027.
“Unlike gun control that had large support among Republican voters (especially for more mental health and red flag laws), immigration and amnesty are totally hated by the base,” wrote Ryan Girdusky. “It would cause a total backlash.”
Well, sounds like Texas Republicans aren’t a fan of Cornyn’s anti-2A bill
