Posted on 07/30/2013 11:54:09 AM PDT by virgil283
Senator Jeff Sessions argues that the GOP elite view on immigration--shared by President Barack Obama and Senator Chuck Schumer--is "nonsense.".....The Sessions memo begins, "The GOP needs to flip the immigration debate on its head. The same set of GOP strategists, lobbyists, and donors who have always favored a proposal like the Gang of Eight immigration bill argue that the great lesson of the 2012 election is that the GOP needs to push for immediate amnesty and a drastic surge in low-skill immigration.."....

"Like Obamacare, this 1,200-page immigration bill is a legislative monstrosity inimical to the interests of our country and the American people. Polls show again and again that the American people want security accomplished first, that they do not support a large increase in net immigration levels, and that they do not trust the government to deliver on enforcement. The GOP should insist on an approach to immigration that both restores constitutional order and serves the interests of the American worker and taxpayer. But only by refusing any attempt at rescue or reprieve for the Senate bill is there a hope of accomplishing these goals,"....
Sessions is on the mark.
Furthermore, Republicans, if they are to be viable nationally, and I don’t think they will, need to stand FOR something. I have moderate friends and we all agree, when you elect a Republican, you just don’t know what you’re going to get.
With a Democrat, you know what they stand for, even if it sucks.
Is Senator Sessions a Freeper?
The right side of the field is wide open, yet the idiots in the GOP prefer to run the ball straight at the democrat's strong side.
By contrast, those clowns in Washington want to grant citizenship to people who sneaked across the border and will become welfare leeches. Kafka himself couldn't have written anything more absurd.
He’s almost correct, the fact is we don’t need any bill, so the house should stop working on a damned immigration bill and concentrate on forcing the feds to enforce the laws we have in effect now. Our immigration laws are good, we just need to enforce them. We certainly don’t need amnesty. Any house bill will be transformed when it hits the senate and we will wind up with amnesty.
