Amnesty will just create more Dem voters. That would be counter-productive.
So is Marks plan just to just let Dems win all the elections forever and have every miserable white male baby-boomer be a listener of his program? That is a great plan for him(and Rush), not so for us.
The is what was suggested in the hostile replies I got here.
Landslide win yesterday, no hope tomorrow, Such is the world of a Rush groupie
Advocate a pro-immigrant policy of low immigration.
Republicans need to provide the American people with their own comprehensive immigration reform plan, i.e., give people a reason to vote FOR something rather than just attack the other sides proposals. Such a plan should contain the following elements:
Formulate a merit based immigration system that brings in the skills and talents to keep us competitive in the global economy;
Reduce immigration levels based on need more closely approximating 300,000 a year;
Eliminate extended chain migration, i.e., family reunification, limiting it to the nuclear family,
Secure the border;
Enforce existing immigration laws to reduce the current illegal alien population and limit future illegal immigration, i.e., attrition thru enforcement. Enforcement would include: (1) ending the job magnet; (2) increasing coordination at the federal level by eliminating barriers to information sharing among agencies; (3) leveraging state and local enforcement resources; (4) fully implementing the US-VISIT Program to track and deport visa overstays; and (5) make mandatory and improve such programs as E-Verify and 287 [g] authority to assist employers and law enforcement in identifying illegal aliens;
Eliminate birthright citizenship and the visa lottery program;
Ensure that anyone who enters this nation illegally is not rewarded by being permitted to stay and work here; i.e., no amnesty;
Streamline the processing and adjudication of immigration cases;
Promote pro-immigrant measures that help newcomers assimilate and embrace the values and principles of our Founders and the Constitution.
Correct, but there are more ways than one to deal with that situation. "Path to Citizenship" doesn't have to be on the table.
Not splitting families up does as does having an actual functional workable outreach program which doesn't seem to currently exist.
It can be done, but it will take time and effort and money and specific targeting.
Big lesson from the O Campaign: Demographics and Microtargeting.
Start with the small business owners. There are lots of them. Win them over. Enlist them to talk to their community on your behalf. Run THEM for office. Get THEM into the local Chamber of Commerce. Standard drill stuff there.
In short, we have 30 days to learn how to become Union Organizers and get a nationwide Machine into place or we are going to be behind the 8-ball forever.
