Posted on 04/27/2012 7:18:12 AM PDT by SoConPubbie
The actual Republican Establishment - political consultants, The Wall Street Journal, corporate America, former Bush advisers and television pundits -- are exhorting Mitt Romney to flip-flop on his very non-Establishment position on illegal immigration.
Both as governor of Massachusetts and as a presidential candidate, Romney has supported a fence on the border, E-Verify to ensure that employees are legal and allowing state police to arrest illegal aliens. He is the rare Republican who recognizes that in-state tuition, driver's licenses and amnesty are magnets for more illegal immigration.
These positions are totally at odds with Establishment Republicans who pander to the business lobby by supporting the cheap labor provided by illegal immigration, and then accuse Americans opposed to a slave labor class in America of racism. If this continues, America will become California and no Republican will ever be elected president again. Big business doesn't care and Establishment Republicans are too stupid to notice.
If you're not sure how you feel about illegal immigration, ask yourself this: "Do I have a nanny, a maid, a pool boy, a chauffeur, a cook or a business requiring lots of cheap labor that the rest of America will have to subsidize with social services to make up for the wages I'm paying?" Press "1" to answer in English.
If the answer is "no," illegal immigration is a bad deal for you. Cheap labor is cheap only for the employer.
Today, 70 percent of illegal immigrant households collect government benefits -- as do 57 percent of all immigrant households -- compared to 39 percent of native households.
Immigrant households with the highest rate of government assistance are from the Dominican Republic (82 percent), Mexico and Guatemala (tied at 75 percent), based on the latest available data from 2009. Immigrant households least likely to be on any welfare program are from the United Kingdom (7 percent).
When he loses, it ain’t gonna be pretty.
Hope she’s right. Doubt it, though.
When he inevitably gets around to showing is true colors, woo hooooo!, Ann Coulter is going to reduce him to the steaming pile of excrement she is currently too blind to see that he is.
I better get extra popcorn.
Pffft! More BS from a traitor.
Hope those 30 pieces of silver are keeping Ms. Coulter warm.
I mean, we're going to get the blame anyways, why not beat the rush?
Immigration is one of the few areas that I don’t completely disagree with Romney...it’s more that I don’t trust that he’ll actually *do* anything that he says about it. It’s fine to believe in a fence and eliminating benefits and all that other stuff, but it’s entirely another thing to have the balls to actually do it and withstand the screams of “racist!” from the MFM and the La Raza crowd. I don’t think Romney can stand up to that.
I hope he paid her enough to tide her over when her next book tanks.
Before you write your next column you really should think about wiping the drool off your chin. It’s embarrassing.
Unless Obama announces that he is gonna require us all to take the mark of the beast, I will not cast a vote for Romney.
Let’s just take Anns argument as the truth, for arguments sake. There is a deeper problem here. Why isn’t the candidate making the case himself on this? If Milt took on this issue with the arguments that she is using, he could start making inroads towards consolidating the Conservatives, yet he is mum on this and relying on shills like Coulter to make his case. Not good for a nominee not to be bold and contrast himself with his opponent.
I am expecting Romney to flip back to the pro-amnesty side soon Ann. That is where he was in 2006 and 2007.
She is correct that cheap immigrant labor is an illusion. That Republicans should have been saying this for years. Whether or not Romney did , I am not as sure.
Ann Coulter - the Garry Wills of the 21st century. She is dead to me.
Halley’s Stance. Wait long enough, it will be back....
