GOP Senate aide: Don’t blame our immigration system for the Tsarnaevs, blame “our society”
Hot Air ^ | April 22, 2013 | Allahpundit

Posted on 04/22/2013 1:48:23 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Via Michael Goldfarb, a complement to Erick Erickson’s post today at Red State about Republican aides turning desperate, shrill, and repulsive as the Gang of Eight bill runs into stumbling blocks. Quote:

MORNING MINDMELD, from GOP Senate aide whose boss favors immigration reform: “The … analysis that the Boston attacks are a setback for immigration reform appears wrongheaded, as we learn more about the story. The fault here wasn’t our immigration system, since the suspects immigrated legally a decade ago as kids and apparently were radicalized here. If anything, the fault lies with our society and domestic intelligence services. Given the facts, the events in Boston seem unlikely to stoke nativist sentiments that may derail immigration reform. To the contrary, to the extent it renews fears of terrorism, it will strengthen the case for reform, since the bipartisan proposal fixes major gaps in our national security posture (by implementing a visa-exit system, registering and background-checking undocumented immigrants, gaining 100% awareness of our southern border, etc.).”

I want to know how a “society” that granted the family asylum and then gave Dzhokhar money to go to school is culpable in the bombing. Dzhokhar, at least, seemed well assimilated given the number of classmates who’ve been babbling to the media about how nice and normal and chill he was. Maybe the problem has more to do with him being a sociopath than with “society”?

Nice job, though, by the GOP aide in throwing the word “nativist” in there even though most amnesty opponents on the right support legal immigration. How does a left-wing buzzword like that end up in a Republican aide’s statement? Very easily, actually: Turns out it’s not the first time conservative staffers have resorted to liberal smears lately in defense of the bill....

Years ago, I saw a cartoon featuring the hangman fasting the rope around the neck of the condemned while mouthing the lament "I realize society is at least partly to blame for your crimes, but I have only enough rope for you!"

They’ve sold out America for campaign cash from businesses that want cheap labor.

Traitors of the worst sort.

If we severely limited immigration and eradicated Islam we wouldn’t need such a large domestic terrorism intel branch to fail.

Numbers prove that catering to this group will not increase the vote among third world hispanics or anyone else. They are getting food stamps, section 8,business loans and are told they all come from Obama.

GWB was among the worst when it came to border security. He had the chance after 9/11 to do something to save this nation but Nooooo his admin theme to continue the tradition of being a “welcoming nation.” PFFFTTT

IMHO immigration bill of 1965 and of 1993 has sealed America’s fate. It is over folks and we have been invaded.

Its important to see the business angle here.

In Pennsylvania, a state senator from Lancaster County introduced DREAM Act legislation to give children of illegals in state tuition rates at universities.

He’s a Republican.

The area has a lot of food and agriculture related industry making ice cream, potato chips and more.

Its those businesses that want the cheap labor pool and they bought the politician.

gaining 100% awareness of our southern border,

Whay kind of liberal double speak is that? It's OK if there are illegals coming accross, as long as we're aware of it? Will we have "Southern Border Awareness Day in schools? What?

Aren’t we all getting sick of this #@&*(*&@ ???? Not my fault, not my fault.

So, how can we find out who it was and then call that Senator’s office.

Obviously the bombers hated runners. So we must end all marathons and running events. We do not want to develop such hatred. And those terrorist they just caught up in Canada apparently hated bridges. So we must destroy and remove all bridges because we do not want to develop such hatred.

It is not Islam nor the street gangs that are our enemy. Our enemy is the politicians that support them. The media that promotes them. The Liberals that befriend them. They are our true enemy.

I respectfully disagree.

We are fractured. Factions are vying for supremacy. Right now, this is regionalized, sometimes down to the neighborhood.

It’s not so much that the bombers hated runners, they hated sweaty women in skimpy running garments. Mad Mo would have been incensed at such displays of flesh.

But still, you have these different organizations supporting those groups. Politicians lead the parade. Notice how they’re all going for gun control?? Pressure cooker control?? Maybe cellphone control. You have to show a need to have one.

My goodness, you sound like one of those ‘Bitter Enders’ Grover Norquist warned us about...one of those loathsome
‘restrictionists, who merely think of themselves as conservatives’!

Prepare to be ‘marginalized’!!!! Grover need his amnesty, so get over yourself.

Grover vs. ‘the Bitter Enders’(Grover trying to give Rubio political cover)

[snip] Grover Norquist is known as an anti-tax crusader, but in the coming weeks he will be just as much a pro-immigration crusader, combatting what he calls the “bitter enders” who oppose comprehensive immigration reform. Norquist says that he’s trying to counteract the effect of “a handful of radio talk-show hosts who talk loudly.” “The bitter-enders who are still responding to radio talk-show hosts from eight years ago haven’t noticed that the world has shifted from underneath them,” he says. “The people who need cover are the guys who are still voting like they were Pat Buchanan."

[snip]”In an unlikely pairing, renowned anti-tax activist Grover Norquist stood alongside AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, the leader of the nation’s largest labor coalition. Senators from both parties yukked it up with jokes throughout the hour-long affair.

After the conference ended, Norquist predicted the Gang of Eight would succeed, arguing that opponents like Sessions and Vitter, who sunk the last immigration bill in 2007, have been marginalized. Restrictionists, Norquist said, are people who merely “think of themselves as conservatives...If you’re a Republican, you look at the business community wants it, the religious community wants it,” he told reporters. “Who is the opposition?

We won when Bush pulled it, with the same people behind him. We sure can’t beat it, if we give up! MAKE SOME NOISE!

Please join me in contacting the ‘conservative’ talking heads and ask WHY they have not exposed the corruption of the people behind this amnesty.

How do we get Rush, Hannity, Levin, Beck to expose it?? Or are they part of it??

Please send them this article!

I don’t know if you have realized it yet, but the GOP has been done with us for quite awhile now. America is now a dead carcass who is almost picked clean to the bone by these creatures in any position of power.

All of those common-sense enforcement options that we either have or ought to have on the books (the visa exit system, etc.) should be put to a vote in the House at least. Because the House is GOP run there’s no excuse not to do this and then let any Reps who don’t immediately support such moves face the rather of their constituents in 2014.

There’s no reason in the world to tie those safety-oriented measures together with the safety-detracting mass amnesty that the GOPe is trying to get passed.
