Tea Party Hijacked by
Open Borders Sal Russo

American Border Patrol -- May 15, 2014  
     We have learned that so-called Tea Party leader Sal Russo is now calling for immigration reform this year.
    Upon closer examination we also learned that Russo was closely tied to Jack Kemp who, when Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, opened public housing to illegal aliens, and generally disapproved of immigration law enforcement
    More recently, Russo worked on the 2008 McCain Campaign. "The Sacramento-based political action committee that funds Tea Party Express activities, Our Country Deserves Better, has taken in more than $4.5 million since forming in 2008 to help John McCain's presidential campaign." (Huffington Post)

(ibid)
    Sal Russo is an insider GOP operative who cleverly exploited the Tea Party movement and is now turning against the interests of those who make up the movement.
