  • Needham: Americans Want to Change Status Quo, Not Endorse Amnesty

    Heritage Action’s Mike Needham argued today that Americans are looking for new ideas to shift the status quo.

    “We need a modern immigration system,” Needham, the CEO of Heritage Action, said this morning on NBC’s Meet the Press. “The bill that  [Sen.] Chuck Schumer [D.-NY] is talking about is a comprehensive bill written by lobbyists that gets into detail of how many ski instructors will be allowed to come into the system.”

    “I think the American people are bored of these kind of fights between Republican and Democrats about how to change the status quo which is broken on the margins and are instead looking for big bold ideas,” Needham added.

    Tomorrow Heritage Action is hosting a conservative policy summit, featuring conservative politicians including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT).
