Grover Norquist is again lobbying for comprehensive amnesty legislation.

He will reportedly brief GOP lawmakers in Congress on Tuesday, arguing that the new GOP-led Congress has “an incredible opportunity” to pass amnesty legislation.

And next month, Norquist will push for amnesty legislation in Nebraska when he speaks at an “invitation-only reception.” According to a Lincoln Journal Star report, Norquist was invited “by a coalition of businesses, people, lawyers and interest groups” including the Nebraska Restaurant Association, the Nebraska Retail Federation, and The Progressive Voice of the Great Plains.

Last year, Norquist partnered with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s pro-amnesty Partnership for a New American Economy last year to hold monthly conference calls with lawmakers to strategize on amnesty legislation.

Norquist also hailed the passage of the Senate’s Gang of Eight’s comprehensive amnesty bill, which the Congress Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers.

“I applaud the Senate for their leadership on this issue, and look forward to constructive improvements from the Republican House,” Norquist said last year.
