Don't anyone tell Marco Rubio, John McCain or Jeff Flake that nearly 80 percent of Hindus voted for Obama, or who knows what they'll come up with.
I understand the interest of business lobbies in getting cheap, unskilled labor through amnesty, but why do Republican officeholders want to create up to 20 million more Democratic voters, especially if it involves flouting the law? Are the campaign donations from the soulless rich more important than actual voters?
Without citing any evidence, the Rubio Republicans simply assert that granting 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens amnesty will make Hispanics warm to the GOP. Yes, that's worked like a charm since Reagan signed an amnesty bill in 1986!
True, Romney lost the Hispanic vote, but so did John McCain, the original Rubio. (McCain lost Hispanics by 67 percent compared to 71 percent who voted against Romney.)
President George H.W. Bush created "diversity visas," massively increased legal immigration and eliminated the English requirement on the naturalization test. In the 1992 election, he won 25 percent of the Hispanic vote -- less than what Romney got.
Although Hispanic politicians, spokesmen and TV networks benefit from Rubio's mass legalization scheme, there's no evidence that Hispanic voters care very much about it.
Amnesty never shows up in polls as a top concern of Hispanics. It's a top concern of employers, not workers -- which isn't going to do much to help Republicans shed that "Party of the Rich" image. After Reagan signed an amnesty bill in 1986, unemployment among Hispanics skyrocketed when, suddenly, there was increased competition for low-skill jobs. That's precisely why businesses want amnesty, not because of their deep concern for the plight of the underclass.
How's this for an idea: Why don't Republicans remind Hispanic voters that the more low-skilled immigrants who are admitted, the lower their wages will be? That at least has the virtue of being untried.
Until the narrative in all this is turned back on Mexico and the highlighting of their totally disastrous economic practices forcing millions of their citizens to migrate, this problem will be with us forever.
As long as Mexico can export their poverty to the US, nothing will change there. The young Mexican males need to stay there and agitate for change.
The fact that our economy here is dependant on what amounts to Mexican “coolies” to function is a disgrace in and of itself.
Amnesty for 20-30 million (12 million is an outdated lie) means they can legally work any job without hassles or fear of deportation or being reported and squealed on. This will push Americans out of jobs. Why will illegal aliens continue with farm jobs when they can now find nicer jobs and/or get on all kinds on disability and welfare programs now because they are 100% kosher. Mom and pop illegal alien will now bring over all their children left in Mexico...illegally but they will be bold enough to do it now. This already goes on now but will go on even more
