Democrats know that they can’t get mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens through Congress without deception, House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Scalise took to Twitter to expose Democrats’ plan to sneak amnesty through Congress “under the cover of the budget process,” Scalise said, calling on his more than four hundred and fifty thousand followers to retweet his post “to expose them”:

“Democrats are now considering sneaking mass amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants through Congress under the cover of the budget process.

“They know it doesn't have enough bipartisan support to pass on its own.

“RT to expose them.”

On Monday, Scalise asked his followers to consider what President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have – and haven’t – done during the administrations’ first one hundred days. Pres. Biden still hasn’t taken steps to undo the border crisis he created – and the person he charged with addressing the crisis still hasn’t visited the border, Scalise wrote:

“103 days since Biden issued orders that created the border crisis.

“He hasn't reversed them.

“40 days since he tapped Harris to solve the crisis.

“She hasn’t visited the border.

“39 days since he promised transparency.

“The press still doesn’t have full access.

“Think about that.”
