Anti-Amnesty Pledge Dividing GOP

Conservatives are pressuring Republicans to sign a pledge stating their opposition to key components of President Barack Obama’s immigration reform agenda, The Hill reported.

The pledge – sponsored by the Federation for American Immigration Reform Congressional Task Force – is already affecting primaries across the country, due in part to conservative syndicated radio talk show host Laura Ingraham. She is keeping track of candidates and members of Congress who sign the pledge.

“If you don’t sign this pledge, then you’re not someone who believes in true border enforcement and you’re someone, apparently, who trusts the Obama administration to implement immigration reform,” she said, according to The Hill.
