Jeb donor, amnesty advocate, hopes Trump is "humiliated" on Election Day

The Never Trump wing of the Republican Party is dominated by influence peddlers who are accustomed to getting their way, supporters of "comprehensive immigration reform," which essentially means amnesty for illegal aliens, and insider deals.

Evidence provided by the Chicago Tribune:
A veteran Republican campaign donor who's pushing for immigration reform says he hopes "Trump and his supporters are humiliated" on Election Day.

William Kunkler, a private equity executive who backed Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's unsuccessful bid for the Republican presidential nomination, said he wasn’t voting for the GOP nominee and expected Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would become president and move quickly to push immigration changes.

:Republicans will be licking their wounds after the effects of Trump leading the ticket and should be willing to deal with (Clinton) on sensible reform," Kunkler, co-chair of the Illinois Business Immigration Council, said at a panel hosted by the group and, the immigration advocacy organization founded by Facebook Chairman Mark Zuckerberg.

Kunkler — who backed and helped bundle campaign cash for previous GOP nominees including Arizona Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — was one of the few speakers to openly mention Trump by name to an audience at the tech incubator TechNexus in the Lyric Opera building.
