LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Scott undermining conservatives

How has Rep. Austin Scott been performing during the time leading up to the current meltdown of immigration law enforcement?

His record is a big disappointment. He is the weakest link in our state’s Republican delegation in the illegal immigration battle. He does not stand with conservatives. According to Numbers USA, he has a C-minus, the worst immigration-reduction grade in the Georgia Republican delegation, and his record is getting worse. It is even lower than Democrat John Barrow’s. In fact, Scott has neatly positioned himself right between former outgoing Majority Leader and amnesty pushing Eric Canto,r who has a C-plus, and the self-described “hell bent for amnesty” Speaker John Boehner, who has a D. How’s that for not rocking establishment’s boat?

Scott is not sponsoring or co-sponsoring any bills that provide sensible solutions like bolstering interior enforcement, requiring E-verify or ending chain migration. Scott won’t even take a stand to end birthright citizenship (anchor babies), even though all seven of his fellow Republican Georgia congressmen are cosponsors of H.R. 140 which does so, nor will he cosponsor Rep. Phil Gingrey’s H.R. 477 to end chain migration. Gingrey also sponsors H.R. 478 to require mandatory E-Verify. No, Scott won’t cosponsor that one, either, and he has turned down an invitation to join the House Border Security Caucus, whose mission is to secure the border and increase interior enforcement.

So what is he doing? He is undermining conservatives by being the only Georgia Republican pushing amnesty for illegal aliens who join our military.
