The Republican party turned off Asians with their harsh immigration rhetoric that spilled out during the contentious primary contest among the Republican candidates.
The rhetoric would be fine if the GOP ever actually managed to accomplish something to end illegal immigration. The US absolutely does need to control it's own borders. But we never have, almost certainly never will - and so the GOP has managed to accomplish nothing to stop illegal immigration but has managed to end up antagonizing every immigrant group in the US. Incredible - the Democrats could never have planned it any better.
"Okay. These simply say that we better be honest here. They're voting Democrat not 'cause of immigration policy. They're not voting Democrat 'cause of open border. The border's already open. They're voting Democrat 'cause the Democrats are the party of free stuff and raising taxes -- "progressive taxation" -- on the rich to pay for it."
------ Rush Limbaugh
This is what I wrote on another thread concerning the Hispanics. Substitute the word Asian anytime I use Hispanic:
"The Hispanic knows the Democrat will work to create a easy pathway to citizenship. There is a reason why Democrats want more Hispanic citizens. Democrats have found that they can easily buy the Hispanic vote with social programs loaded with freebies. It is a symbiotic relationship which guarantees huge numbers of Hispanics becoming citizens. The Hispanic uses his vote potential as political capitol. The Hispanic vote uses the Democrat politician for immigration reforms that will enable more Hispanics to become citizens and to get more freebies."
"This mechanism threatens the Republican Party who sees the danger of unrestrained Hispanic immigration and citizenship. The Archilles heel of course, is the freebie. By eliminating the freebie, there is no marketing for the vote. That would take a big chunk out of the mechanism."
