Conservative activists leave amnesty for dead in August

Conservative activist groups are orchestrating a coordinated campaign to pressure Republican Members of Congress on a key issue for them at town hall events this summer. But all of that effort is going to defund Obamacare, while the Senate passed immigration bill is being completely ignored.

“At the bottom of this post you will find a list of congressional town halls for the next week,” RedState co-founder Erick Erickson wrote Friday, “Stay focused. Show up and confront your Congressman. Tell him if he votes to fund Obamacare, he cannot really say he is fighting against it.”

No mention is made of “immigration” or “amnesty” anywhere in the post.

The same is true of FreedomWorks, which has taken the “extraordinary” step of including the defunding of Obamacare on their online scorecard.
