Sen. Jeff SnowFlake has chosen sides. Although the 2012 post mortem of the presidential election claimed that no Republican could get elected until amnesty has been granted to at least 11 million illegals, President Trump ran on a platform of deporting illegal aliens and restricting the number of legal immigrants allowed into the United States and won. Jeff Flake has announced he has joined the resistance and has publicly stated that he wants to revive the Gang of Eight immigration reform package.
The Democrat Party has become a bi-coastal party and is no longer a national party. With the losses of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, the Democrats lost what little they held in middle America and that bodes badly for them in the future. Trump has cemented his support in those three states after Foxconn announced plans to build factories in Wisconsin and Michigan, while Trump’s policies have revived Pennsylvania’s massive coal industry.
Sen. Jeff Flake announced last week he was joining the resistance against President Trump.
On Monday, Politico published an excerpt from the Arizona Republican’s new book, “Conscience of a Conservative,” that called for Congress to stop Trump’s agenda. Additionally, Flake castigated his own party for making political discourse in the country so toxic, and his fellow conservatives for not standing up for civil discourse.
The senator garnered several headlines for coming out against a Republican president so fervently, and the coverage of it was certainly friendly to Flake. What more could journalists want than a Republican calling out his party for birtherism in the summer of 2017?
But Flake isn’t just about opposing Trump — he wants the GOP to follow an entirely different political path. One that is very, very civil with the opposing side. Besides that, it’s not much different from what prominent Republicans were offering before Trump came to dominate the party.
One of the issues the Arizona senator highlights in his new work is immigration — and his position on it is very much in opposition to Trump’s. Flake wants to give nearly all illegal immigrants a path to legal status and would like to increase the number of newcomers America takes in every year.
Arizona let the country down by reelecting uber liberal John McCain. Let’s hope they redeem themselves by tossing Flake out on his rear end.
