And why should we almost triple the intake of legal permanent immigrants over the next ten years, double the size of the guest worker program, and legalize the status of 11 to 20 million lawbreakers? We have over 20 million Americans unemployed or underemployed. How does importing tens of millions of immigrants help Americans find jobs? What is the impact on the social welfare system where immigrants, legal and illegal, use services to a far greater extent than the native born.
The GOPe is intent on political suicide. Throwing Obama a lifeline with immigration reform will ensure that they lose the 2014 midterms and divide the party to such an extent that a third party will emerge. In the meantime, Obama continues with his backdoor amnesty and creating his own immigration reform thru unconstitutional Executive Orders.
You just touched on my biggest fear that boner will take up immigration(amnesty)and we will once again snatch defeat while as of right now we have sure victory.
I still see it all as political strategy both short term, long term and as it occurs. We seem to lose at every turn.
