Democrats are puzzled as to why the liberal boogeymen Koch Brothers are suddenly on their side (like nearly every major corporation on the Fortune 500).
From The Hill:
The Koch Network is using its immigration initiative LIBRE to back a number of Democrats that are working to find a permanent legal solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.
Not all the ads are directed at Democrats. Six GOP House lawmakers and three senators will receive praise from the group, NPR reports, and the Koch Network plans to spend nearly $400 million defending GOP seats this cycle.Leftists, whose identities revolve around believing they're part of an anti-establishment "Resistance," have no idea how to interpret the news.
There's no "ulterior motive" here. The Koch Brothers support open borders because they want cheap labor. They support open borders because it will drive down wages and hurt unions' bargaining power and the Democrats are fully on board (along with establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan).
Just three years ago, Bernie Sanders denounced the idea of open borders as "a Koch brothers" idea.
"It would make everybody in America poorer—you're doing away with the concept of a nation state," Sanders said at the time.
"What right-wing people in this country would love is an open-border policy. Bring in all kinds of people, work for $2 or $3 an hour, that would be great for them. I don’t believe in that. I think we have to raise wages in this country," Sanders said.
He's since gotten on board with the Koch brothers agenda.
