CPAC 2013: Donald Trump: Immigration reform is a ‘suicide mission’ for GOP

Donald Trump said the Republican party will lose elections if it reforms the nation’s entitlement programs and will hand Democrats 11 million votes if Congress grants citizenship to illegal immigrants, likening the reform efforts to a “suicide mission.”

Mr. Trump has been a fierce critic of the Obama administration and established himself as a voice in Republican ranks when he badgered Mr. Obama to release his long-form birth certificate to prove that he was born in the United States. More recently, Mr. Trump has taken aim at the administration’s decision to halt White House tours because of the automatic budget cuts, known as sequesters, that kicked in earlier this month.

The math is very simple and proven in 2012. 70%+ of Asians and Hispanics voted for Obama and will continue down this road of voting for Democrats who can give give give them free stuffs! Asians and Hispanics are by far 80-90% of today’s immigrants (legal and illegal) and in the last decade there was more Asian immigration than Hispanic which was a shock. Asia means from Korea to Pakistan and south of there

I followed President Reagan “like a puppy dog” too and for many of the same reasons. We’re lucky to get one true conservative leader in a generation. If you can’t see that, I pity you.

When Palin disassociates herself from McCain, you let me know. I supported her, but her continued insistance of being in line with McCain’s policies is more than I can stomach.
She LIED..She promised to let you all know by Sept. 2 of 2012 if she was going to run, while you all ran around insisting she would. She did’nt let us know and she didn’t run...are you going to do that again??

And I don’t need your self righteous pity.

So if an individual picks you from among 320 million people to be the potential vice president of the United States you would back-stab him two short years later? Thanks for giving us all the insight into your character, inadvertent as it might have been. Google “loyalty” some time.

Yeah, well, you stick with your ‘loyalty’ to a corrupt man, doing his best to destroy this nation. I’ll chose loyalty to my country.

Google, ‘screw you’, smart mouth, you have no argument, only insults. You’d make McCain proud. Now, leave me alone, I’ve got better things to do than deal with you people who just can’t get it through your heads that these people are POLITICIANS and they LIE.

It’s not just the 12 million or so illegals. Once made legal, they’ll be able to take part in chain migration and sponsor millions more.

The net gain for Democrats will be much larger than just the 70+% of legalized illegal aliens who go on to vote. It will be 70+% of the millions of relatives they sponsor and the millions of, children they have. This is why it’s crazy to just focus on illegal immigration as many Republican do, and either imply (or outright say) that they are fine with mass legal immigration. Legal immigration is already helping to turn the country to the Democrats.

So while stopping amnesty is a necessity, so to is reducing legal immigration.

“I’m all for reform that allows for achieving legal residency and work permits but not for an accelerated path to citizenship for those that come illegally.”

That’s a sucker’s bet. Just like the 1986 Amnesty that was supposed to be followed by strict enforcement of our immigration laws, and to never be followed by another amnesty.

Democrat politicians, supported by the treason wing of the GOP, will gut any attempt to limit the benefits given to amnestied illegals. And if they don’t do it the courts will.

You’re right. But since The Stupid Party can’t even figure out that illegal aliens are making it a permanent minority party there’s no chance that the dimwits of the GOP elite will ever slow down the legal immigration from the 3rd world that is having the same effect.

Too many in the GOP are terrified of taking any position that defends the historic American people if it goes against political correctness. And reducing legal immigration from the 3rd world is one of those issues.

So we might well be living at the tail end of American history. The forces that are ending it are already in motion and our rulers aren’t going to left a finger to stop the process. It’s like living in Rome circa AD 400.

Forget about the Rule of Law....this is not your country anymore and Martinez is a symbol of the disease of lawlessness. I realize that Martinez is a legal citizen under what I think is a mistaken or corruption of the 1868 14th Amendment which was obviously meant to apply to newly freed slaves not every illegal immigrant birth within the borders. My point was actually that the idiots that ran the Romney Campaign deliberately or mistakenly proceeded to front the Rep Convention with a bunch of harpy women, NAM, a fat NJ Repub and a leftist NE ex-Governor thusly managing to lose the Midwestern white blue collar “Reagan” voters and the election. As for Martinez, she was a (recent) former leftist D-Rat who has benefited by the illegal actions of her grandparents, much the same way that Ted Kennedy benefited by the illegal actions of his mobster father or the Bush boys from the actions of their Grandfather.

You’re right about the intent of the 14th. My point is Martinez was born here, so were her parents as far as I can find. So your conclusion has nothing to do with her.

Hello AuntB, thanks for the correction on Martinez’ legality. I had misunderstood that Martinez’ grandparents were illegal immigrants.
