7 Political Questions for Republicans Who Support Amnesty
Townhall.com ^ | January 22, 2013 | John Hawkins

Posted on 01/22/2013 4:03:56 AM PST by Kaslin

Republicans who support amnesty are like global warming alarmists. They can't answer the most basic questions about what they believe. Since the Republican Party is now once again considering going to war with itself over amnesty instead of trying to move the ball forward for conservatism, it seems like a good time to ask some of the crucial questions that always seem to be conspicuously ignored because the pro-amnesty side has no answers.

1) How many net votes would the GOP lose if illegal immigrants become citizens? Barack Obama beat Mitt Romney 73% to 27% with Hispanic voters. Given that illegals are poorer, less educated and less law abiding than Hispanic Americans, we'd be VERY lucky to get more than 20% of their votes. So, if there are 12 million illegals, that means Democrats would have 9.6 million new potential voters while the GOP could add 2.4 million, leaving a 7.2 million vote gain for the Democrats. When Mitt Romney lost to Barack Obama by a little less than 5 million votes, how can allowing the Democrats to pad their totals by another 7.2 million potential votes help the GOP?

2) Why don't Hispanic voters already support the Republican Party since Reagan backed an amnesty in 1986? The only way the GOP could be helped politically by backing amnesty would be if our numbers with Hispanic Americans went through the roof as a result of the policy. Well, guess what? This concept has been tested in the real world. In 1984, Ronald Reagan received 37% of the Hispanic vote. Then, in 1986, he backed a "one-time" amnesty for illegal aliens. The result? In 1988, George Bush received 30% of the Hispanic vote. If the exact same thing happened again with 12 million illegal immigrants, it would be like the crack of doom for the conservative movement.

3) Doesn't the GOP's experience with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 suggest Democrats would get all the credit for an amnesty? The Republican Party has ALWAYS been the party of Civil Rights while the Democrats were the party of slavery, the KKK, poll taxes and Jim Crow laws. However, diehard racist Lyndon Johnson backed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for political reasons. Percentage wise, more Republicans in Congress voted for it than Democrats. Yet, who got all the credit? The Democrats. This time around, we also have a Democrat President while percentage wise, Democrats would support amnesty wholeheartedly while the majority of Republicans would oppose it. Why wouldn’t Hispanic Americans rightfully give Democrats credit for the amnesty instead of Republicans?

4) Why do Democrats want to make illegal aliens citizens if it will help Republicans? We've often heard that Hispanic Americans are "natural" Republican voters -- and maybe they are. It would be nice if someone, make that ANYONE in the Republican Party would abandon gimmicks like amnesty and actually do real, sustained outreach to Hispanic voters to convince them to vote for us. That being said, since 1980, Republican candidates for President have captured somewhere between 21% and 40% of the Hispanic vote. In other words, whether immigration was a hot issue or not, whether the GOP backed amnesty or not, or whether the candidate was Ronald Reagan or Mitt Romney, the Democrats have taken at least 60% of the Hispanic vote. That means what we're really debating is how many more people we're going to add to a demographic group that the Democrats are practically guaranteed to win. It only makes sense politically for Democrats to back that policy. Republicans? Now that's a lot harder to explain.

5) Is making 12 million illegals American citizens good for the country? That may be a quaint, seldom asked question in Washington D.C. these days, but the voters still seem to care about whether policies help or hurt the country. While immigration is certainly good for America, it's worth asking: Why would we want 12 million illegal manual laborers as American citizens as opposed to legally bringing in more scientists, engineers and computer programmers? At a time when 47% of Americans aren't paying income taxes, what percentage of these illegals would be contributing more to the tax base than they'd take out in services and welfare programs if they were allowed to become American citizens? Very, very few -- after all, don't the proponents of illegal immigration claim that they're doing crummy jobs for low pay that Americans just won't do (Yes, that's a phony argument, but still…). Furthermore, given how poor the job market is today, does it really make sense to give 12 million foreigners free reign to compete for jobs with American citizens who are desperate for work? Whatever happened to American politicians putting America first? Moreover, if we have a second "one time" amnesty, why wouldn't we have a third, a fourth, or a fifth? Obviously, the Democrats will want as many amnesties as possible for political purposes and the corrupt businesses that make a killing on illegal immigrant labor while passing on the costs to everyone else will keep pushing their stooges in the GOP to bring in more illegals. All that is aside from the fact that the moment you make 12 million illegals American citizens, both parties will have to pay attention to them. Naturally, the first thing they're going to want is to legally or illegally bring as many of their fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, cousins and friends as they can to the United States. The first amnesty covered 2 million illegals. This one would be 12 million. It wouldn't be a surprise if the next one is 20-30 million.

6) Is it worth having a terrible 2014? Typically, incumbents face a "sixth year curse" that's phenomenal for the opposition. "In nine of the ten sixth-year Congressional elections since 1910, the president’s party has lost seats in the Senate and in the House. The average loss in the Senate has been 8.6 seats and in the House it was 30 seats." Is it worth putting all that in jeopardy by starting the same sort of interparty war that helped drive George W. Bush's approval rating down in the twenties? Do you want ugly, amnesty-driven primary challenges all across the country with millions of conservatives staying home because they're disgusted about being sold out by the Republican Party yet again? No matter how many things the Republican Party does right over the next two years, it's entirely possible that pursuing amnesty could put the Senate out of reach in 2014. Is it really worth it to give the Democrats their extra 7.2 million votes?

7) Politically, doesn't it make a lot more sense to take a security first position and do outreach? There's a reason that even John McCain started claiming he had a security first position on illegal immigration: It's because it makes perfect sense politically. We have almost universal agreement that the border should be secured. So, why not build the fence, get e-verify or the equivalent working and secure the border first? If the border (and our VISA system) is secure, then we don't have to worry about more amnesties. If the illegals that are here are locked out of employment, they'll start to go home. Although it's highly unlikely that we'd have any sort of real labor shortage driven by illegals, if we do, we could always pass a guest worker program. The end result of all of this would be that the venom would be taken out of the issue. No one would have to worry about whether politicians are telling the truth about securing the border because it would be done. Many of the illegals that are here would self-deport without work and the less illegals that are here, the easier it would be to come to a compromise over giving them some kind of legal status. There's a world of difference between dealing with 2 million people here illegally as Reagan did and 12 million, like we have today. In the interim, the GOP could start doing something it should have been doing all along, which is Hispanic outreach. Waiting for Hispanic voters to come to the Republican Party hasn't ever worked and probably never will. It's time for the GOP to go to the mountain instead of waiting for the mountain to come to us.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feral
A feral organism is one that has changed from being domesticated to being wild or untamed. In the case of plants it is a movement from cultivated to uncultivated or controlled to volunteer.

As with any introduced species, the introduction of feral animals or plants to non-native regions may disrupt ecosystems and has, in some cases, contributed to extinction of indigenous species.

These are Feral Aliens.

Villaraigosa said recently here in the Los Angeles Times that there are 4.3 million immigrants in Los Angeles.

Doug McIntyre said recently in the Daily News that there are 750,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles, or 19.6 percent of the population.

Our population increases by 5 people, one is an American of American parents, The other 4 are foreign born or their offspring.

73 percent of Asians and 75 percent of Latinos voted for Obama.

Back when Regan made the first amnesty proclamation I told everyone who would listen that that was a grave mistake because now, millions of Mexicans would flood into the U.S. knowing that some time in the future another amnesty would occur.

My predictions were right on the mark.

America, as we know it, is over. Political Correctness, sensitivity, diversity, civil rights, the welfare system and a whole host of other parasitic maladies upon freedom and Constitutional laws has made a lawful and organized society a thing of the past.

We have crossed the line and will not be coming back over it again.

I don’t support amnesty but I was wondering how many of those that received it before became citizens and are now allowed to vote?

Seems that amnesty and citizenship are two different animals. In order to become a citizen and vote you have to do stuff. Stuff I am sure the left will give them assistance to accomplish.

No pathway to citizenship for illegals, period. Legalization yes. Full rights including voting for the Welfare State, no.

That is the penalty for breaking the law.

The question intentionally misrepresents the position of most Republican’s.

Most are NOT for “amnesty”, and certainly NOT for “Citizenship”!

The author is among those who continue to insist sending them home is a viable option, and therefore, anything short of that is labeled “amnesty”.

Assuming there are 30 million illegals in America, its enough to create some 50 new primarily democrat congressional districts. Just the basic administrative costs per district probably run into the 10s of millions of dollars. Then we can start adding the hundreds of billions of dollars in pork and earmarks those democrats will vote for and you begin to see the scope of the problem.

Illegals are nothing but government growth hormones.

I don’t even want to think about what all those new democrats will do to social issues.

The Republican Party is the division of the National Democrat Party that serves as the Designated Opposition. Of course, Republicans who are in on this arrangement want Amnesty. It will cement the Democrat Party as the Permanent ruling party int the USA and will hasten the conversion of the USA into a Social Democrat totalitarian socialist state. That subject is the dividing line between conservatives who might be actually opposed to the Social Democrat State and “conservatives” who are acting in the role assigned to them. These faux Republicans and conservatives think they will have a place in the coming Nomenklatura but part of their roles as Opposition includes being early defendants in the inevitable show trials.

Amnesty, no. But so far I haven’t heard conservative people offer any other solution besides “send them home”. And I’m waiting.

AT the very least, ICE should be reformed so someone from either Mexico or Canada is processed in weeks instead of months, and so that it can be done w/o huge legal expenses.

We only need these two (#1+#2) from above because the only argument FOR anmesty now is to get Hispanic votes:

1) How many net votes would the GOP lose if illegal immigrants become citizens?
2) Why don't Hispanic voters already support the Republican Party since Reagan backed an amnesty in 1986?

So path to citizenship should not be considered until the GOP amnesty club explains exactly how they will get those votes.
Amnesty now would result in O getting all the credit.
The House should offer to make Os Dreamer EO into law in return for enforcement measures.

Some illegals did not take up the offer and are still illegal. They thought it was a scam to deport them.

Stop birthright citizenship. No public benefits of any kind without proof of citizenship. Most would return home.

Like Kaslin, I agree completely. Also, to compare today with the political scene when Reagan was in charge back in the early 1980's just doesn't apply now. It used to be that immigrants who came to the US did so with the idea of being assimilated into our culture...to be a part of it. Today's immigrants want to take over a neighborhood microcosm and make it grow until they can create an area that replicates their old culture. Look at the efforts of Muslims in particular: they move in, densely populate an area, and then start pushing to establish their own laws (Sharia law) in that area.

I don't have an answer, but preventing illegals from voting sure takes the carrot away from a lot of politicians who see them as nothing more than "buyable voters". Free cells phones? Why the hell are my tax dollars paying for that if not to buy votes. I'm so PO'ed I could spit.

Marxist Labor leaders used Latino voters to move California left – implications for all Americans

Maria Elena Durazo of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, deliberately used Latinos to change Los Angeles.

Richie Ross, a Sacramento based Democratic Party political consultant along with union activist Maria Elena Durazo, her husband, her prediessor Miguel Contreras, California Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, linked immigrant union workers with immigrant voters to double the votes cast by Latinos in the early 90s.

In 2000, Latinos were told to pledge to get 100% of their family to vote.

In 2005, the Latinos increased their vote for Villaraigosa by 50%.

In 2010, Maria Elena and Fabian Nunez used the Arizona anti-illegal alien law to push for pushing a vote for Jerry Brown. Latinos accounted for 22% of California’s voters.

The Communist Party USA and Democratic Socialists for America are both committed to increase the Latino vote.

Maria Elena Durazo is closely allied with the two communist groups, Antonia Villaraigosa, and Gil Cedillo. They all trained under Communist Party USA activist Bert Corona.

A young Bert Corona was mentored by communist International Longshore Worker’s Union president Harry Bridges. It was Bridges that convinced Obama’s communist friend Frank Marshall Davis to move to Hawaii. Davis was a writer for the union’s newspaper.

Durazo, Cedillo and Villaraigosa were trained at Bert Corona’s radical Centro de Action Social Autonoma (CASA) in the 1970s.

Both Durazo and Cedillo were connected to another Corona founded communist party spinoff, Mexican American Political Association.

In 1998, the Los Angeles Democratic Socialists of America leader Steve Tarzynski sent an email to Los Angeles DSA comrade Harold Meyerson. Meyerson, a columnist with the Washington Post introduced Barack Obama to the wider American Public.

Tarzynski listed in his email, 25 people he thought should be on an “A-list” of leaders to strategize on the progressive movement. That list included Maria Elena Durazo, Miguel Contreras, Gil Cedillo, Anonio Villraigosa, Stanley Sheinbaum, Karen Bass, Xavier Becerra, Henry Waxman, and Maxine Waters.

Peter Dreier of Occidental College wrote of Villaraigosa’s victory and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis in the DSA’s Democratic Left, Winter 2006 saying that it is “just remarkable what L.A. has become.”

A fine editorial, but it makes the error of assuming that today's Republican Party is serious about opposing the Democrats. If the last two Presidential elections are any indication, this is not the case.

Today's Republican Party cares not a whit whether it gives the Democrats 7,200,000 new votes. That is, as long as the caviar at the latest cocktail party is fresh.

Focusing on Amnesty is a mistake, here. Yes, there would be some eventual path to citezenship for illegal alieans. I grant that but, on the front end the country will finally get e-verification, updated social security cards and hence tracking, no access to social services unless one has a legal status, and harsh penalties for employers who employ illegals. In the end, hotels, vegetables, and housing prices will go up because the work will no longer be done by illegal immigrants. In essence, this means no more exploitation of the poor in the downtrodden which the Dems are supposedly for....

Look, I hate this problem as much as the next person but, we’ve absolutely got to get that front-end stuff in place. We’ve been lax and lazy as a society for 60 years when it comes to border enforcement and the GOP is now payig for it with a surge of ignorant uneducated workers coming in and voting for socialism. We’ve got to tighten up our game before we come a third world country.

.....the only argument FOR anmesty is to get Hispanic votes....

I hate to be the one to bring it up---but it is unlawful to exchange legislation for gratuities and/or votes.

=================================================

If there's any dealing to be done, Repubs had better get on the stick----legislation should be amended to deny citizenship:

(1) to illegals who bought forged/faked multiple identities;

(2) to illegals who fraudulently voted in American elections;

(3) to illegals cashing US govt checks;

(4) to all illegals convicted of crimes;

(5) to illegals w/ fraudulent drivers' licenses......

(6) to illegals undermining the US ecocomy by sending money back to their homelands;

(7) to illegals affiliated with latino organizations undermining US ntl security;

(8) to illegals connected to the hatemongering "La Raza" and to "Raza Studies" that advocates killing Americans.

.............and so on and so forth.

====================================================

Former Cong Allen West should write letters to his colleagues, and to the media, emphasizing the following:

(1) decrying the agitation and intimidation tactics being used by latino groups,

(2) exposing latino groups using hatemongering for personal gain,

(3) emphasizing illegalities WRT threatening the US Congress for passage of self-serving bills, and,

(4) precpitating investigations into fraud and intimidation upon our electoral/legislative system by hatemongering groups.

There seems to be a huge disconnect between Obama/Biden attributing their reelection to "The Hispanic Vote" and the rush to legalize Hspanics. O/B seem to be saying that illegal Hspanics fraudulently voted in US elections (/snix).

=============================================

Some observers say Congress is in a state of paralysis WRT amnesty legislation. Obama is under constant latino presuure----forced to repeat and repeat his once-broken promise to win reform. Dems are floating proposals; Republicans, like Marco Rubio of Florida--with his eye on higher office----is positioning himself as a reformer.

Congress paralyzed? Nonsense---the Democrats are doing everything in their power to facilitate illegal activities on Capitol Hill. Read on.

AP broke the story WRT an illegal immigrant------ and registered sex offender----Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta----who was working as a volunteer intern for Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ).

The Peruvian ilegal was scheduled to be arrested but had not been due to "political concerns" (Menendez was running for reelection in NJ). The Homeland Security said the AP’s story about the delayed arrest was “categorically false.”

But Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa and six other Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee asked the Obama administration for details about the incident.

Guess what?

Obama’s Homeland Security Department lied to the AP. Documents show ICE officials in New Jersey advised that the arrest “had the possibility of garnering significant congressional and media interest” and were “advised to postpone the arrest” until officials in Washington gave approval.

The documents describe a conference call between Washington and New Jersey to “determine a way forward, given the potential sensitivities surrounding the case.”

The Repub senators said the documents show the delay was delayed six weeks just like the AP reported. They asked for details about the department’s review of potentially sensitive, high profile immigration cases when arrests are delayed. Menendez said that his staff was notified about the case immediately before AP’s story; he learned about the case from the AP and he knew nothing about whether or why DHS had delayed the arrest.

=============================================

Mmmmmm.......it's downright amazing how Obama and the Democrats suck-up for latino votes at the same time they're "defending" the US Constitution (snix).

Law-abiding Americans Must demand answers to these penetrating questions.

(1) Why are illegal lawbreakers given the protection of: (a) the federal govt, (b) the Obama Admin, (c) the DOJ, (d) a US Senator, (e) other govt officials/workers/agencies and institutions?

(2) Are Democrats and Obama acting on orders from foreign governments?

(3) Why is an illegal lawbreaker (a registered sex offender) offered more protections and rights than law-abiding Americans?

(4) What's the number of state/officiels/agencies/institutions protecting interests, as well?

(5) What are the penalties imposed on US and state govt officials for using tax-paid govt offices, govt resources, and govt authority, to aid and abet wrongdoing---and why are they not being mobilized?

======================================================

The illegal predator was billed as a "volunteer." So how did he subsist in pricey Washington? who was paying his rent? Who was buying his meals? Who was paying his carfare back and forth to the Senate?

===============================================

L/E should examine Sen Menendez's timesheets, employment contracts, and other govt documents filed relating to actuating the position for an illegal. Its a felony to falsify govt documents---forgery could also be involved. How many other govt checks is he cashing: (1) state pension checks, (2) govt bonus checks, (3) govt annuities, (4) federal SS checks, (5) federal SSI checks, (6) state UI and Workmen's Comp checks. And govt credit cards, expense accounts, adminstrative budgets, travel reimbursements, use of govt cars.......and so on.

You have to remember Anchor Babies. Upon reaching 18 years of age they will be voting. You also have to remember the majority of these “pardoned” illegals will live on the welfare system and breed like rats.

Let’s see.....how long ago was it that Regan passed the amnesty bill in 1986? How old are the first of hordes of babies born in welfare hospitals to previously illegals today? 26?

How many voted for Obama?

It’s pretty obvious why amnesty is important to the communist Democrats isn’t it?

Doug McIntyre said recently in the Daily News that there are 750,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles, or 19.6 percent of the population.

If LA County does not contain at least 2.5 million illegal aliens, I will buy Villaraigosa and McIntyre a drink. The "12 million" illegals nationwide has been a standard line for years. Since they are illegal, no one actually knows. My bet is between 20 and 25 million. Our total Latino population is edging toward the 100 million mark. It is not too far-fetched to imagine that 1 in 5 is here illegally. Of course, many of the rest have illegal antecedents. This ain't really very good.

What also ain't really very good or logical is the Karl Rove hypothesis that "Latinos are the Republicans of the Future. Catholics, doncha know ... strong family values ... hard workers " etc ad nauseam.

What really happens is that the illegal latino illegitimacy rate is very high, welfare usage is very high, and all in all, it's a safe bet that the illegals cost us more money than they bring in in taxes and SS payments ... which is the left/euro/socialist rationale for illegal immigration. How the Democrats keep Latinos and African-Americans, who are the first victims of illegal immigration, in the same big tent is like dudes, beyond me!

“how exactly are you gonna ship ‘em all home?”

Simple!!!

Enforce existing law and fine anyone caught hiring one heavily on a first offense and mandatory prison sentence for a second offense including homeowners!!!

Make it illegal for any government to give them any form of aid.

They will self deport and all be gone within a year!!!!

Today's Republican Party cares not a whit whether it gives the Democrats 7,200,000 new votes. That is, as long as the caviar at the latest cocktail party is fresh.

And as long as...God forbid!...nobody calls them "racist"!

Amnesty, no. But so far I haven’t heard conservative people offer any other solution besides “send them home”. And I’m waiting.

Here has been my view since the topic hit the boiling point in 2005:

1) CLOSE THE BORDERS FIRST!

2) Streamline the process and fees for Legalization and Citizenship starting with those who have already spent years in line.

3) Provide a window of opportunity for the illegals here to come out of the shadows. Give them a 6 month timeframe to acquire a Temporary State ID which will be tagged with the letter I for Illegal Immigrant. If you do not acquire this ID and you are arrested for any reason after this 6 month window, you will be deported.

4) Along with being given a Temp State ID, you will also be placed into a probationary period of 2 years (or more) where you must remain arrest free for that probationary period. Any misdemeanor or felony conviction will immediately get you deported. Also, like welfare, you must demonstrate that you are attempting to get LEGAL work.

5) After said probationary period, you will then enroll in the Citizenship Program which will allow for Citizenship at the end of the program. The program will consist of the current naturalization test and a naturalization class.

6) During the probationary period and Citizenship period, you cannot file for any financial aid.

2) Why don’t Hispanic voters already support the Republican Party since Reagan backed an amnesty in 1986? The only way the GOP could be helped politically by backing amnesty would be if our numbers with Hispanic Americans went through the roof as a result of the policy. Well, guess what? This concept has been tested in the real world. In 1984, Ronald Reagan received 37% of the Hispanic vote. Then, in 1986, he backed a “one-time” amnesty for illegal aliens. The result? In 1988, George Bush received 30% of the Hispanic vote. If the exact same thing happened again with 12 million illegal immigrants, it would be like the crack of doom for the conservative movement. “

There’s all the proof ya need that HISPANICS will vote democrat/socialism no matter what the GOP offers up!

“Back when Regan made the first amnesty proclamation I told everyone who would listen that that was a grave mistake because now, millions of Mexicans would flood into the U.S. knowing that some time in the future another amnesty would occur.

My predictions were right on the mark.

America, as we know it, is over. Political Correctness, sensitivity, diversity, civil rights, the welfare system and a whole host of other parasitic maladies upon freedom and Constitutional laws has made a lawful and organized society a thing of the past.

We have crossed the line and will not be coming back over it again.”

I’d give anything to find something there to disagree with you about.

(Art.) Is making 12 million illegals American citizens good for the country?

We'd be lucky if it were only 12,000,000. Probably 20-25,000,000 is more like it. The Census Bureau has been minimizing illegal immigration for years.

This is not counting numberless hordes who'll descend on us from all over the Third World to get in on the gravy train if the US does another amnesty and general grant of citizenship.

And if the Mexican government gets away with it twice, you can bet the Chinese will begin sending us hundreds of millions of Chinese. They could simply take America away from us as easily as the Democrats have. (Oh, and the Chinese are hardcore racists. )

Someone looked into the magic appeal 'Rats have for Hispanics, and the bottom-line answer was just that: FREE MONEY.

And don’t forget that Reagan gave them amnesty in 1986. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

Dems love to bring that up.
Of course that was 27 years ago. The country was dramatically different back then and none of us could imagine a country like this then. That days problems were sooo different than they are now.

Reagan was a human not the perfect inhuman figure that talk radio has tried to make him out to be,
