GOP crafts immigration plant to wreck the country and lose voters (Anne Coulter)
anncoulter.com ^ | January 29, 2014 | ann coulter.

Posted on 01/29/2014 4:45:42 PM PST by dennisw

As House Republicans prepare to sell out the country on immigration this week, Phyllis Schlafly has produced a stunning report on how immigration is changing the country. The report is still embargoed, but someone slipped me a copy, and it's too important to wait.

Leave aside the harm cheap labor being dumped on the country does to the millions of unemployed Americans. What does it mean for the Republican Party?

Citing surveys from the Pew Research Center, the Pew Hispanic Center, Gallup, NBC News, Harris polling, the Annenberg Policy Center, Latino Decisions, the Center for Immigration Studies and the Hudson Institute, Schlafly's report overwhelmingly demonstrates that merely continuing our current immigration policies spells doom for the Republican Party.

Immigrants -- all immigrants -- have always been the bulwark of the Democratic Party. For one thing, recent arrivals tend to be poor and in need of government assistance. Also, they're coming from societies that are far more left-wing than our own. History shows that, rather than fleeing those policies, they bring their cultures with them. (Look at what New Yorkers did to Vermont.)

This is not a secret. For at least a century, there's never been a period when a majority of immigrants weren't Democrats.

At the current accelerated rate of immigration -- 1.1 million new immigrants every year -- Republicans will be a fringe party in about a decade.

Thanks to endless polling, we have a pretty good idea of what most immigrants believe.

According to a Harris poll, 81 percent of native-born citizens think the schools should teach students to be proud of being American. Only 50 percent of naturalized U.S. citizens do.

While 67 percent of native-born Americans believe our Constitution is a higher legal authority than international law, only 37 percent of naturalized citizens agree.

No wonder they vote 2-1 for the Democrats.

The two largest immigrant groups, Hispanics and Asians, have little in common economically, culturally or historically. But they both overwhelmingly support big government, Obamacare, affirmative action and gun control.

According the 2012 National Asian American Survey, as well as a Kaiser Foundation poll, only 40 percent of the general public holds a favorable opinion of Obamacare, 42 percent unfavorable. Meanwhile, 51 percent of Asians have a favorable opinion of Obamacare, 18 percent an unfavorable one. Even Koreans support Obamacare by 57 percent to 17 percent.

Overall, 69 percent of immigrants like Obamacare, according to a 2010 Cooperative Congressional Election Study.

That same survey showed that only 35 percent of native-born Americans support affirmative action, compared to 58 percent of immigrants, including -- amazingly -- 64 percent of Asians (suggesting they may not be as smart as everyone thinks).

Also surprising, a Pew Research Center poll of all Hispanics, immigrant and citizen alike, found that Hispanics take a dimmer view of capitalism than even people who describe themselves as "liberal Democrats." While 47 percent of self-described "liberal Democrats" hold a negative view of capitalism, 55 percent of Hispanics do.

Pew also found that only 27 percent of Hispanics support gun rights, compared to 57 percent of non-Hispanic whites. According to Latino Decisions, large majorities of Hispanics favor a national database of gun owners, limiting the capacity of magazines and a ban on semiautomatic weapons.

Seventy-five percent of Hispanic immigrants and 55 percent of Asian immigrants support bigger government -- also according to Pew. Even after three generations in America, Hispanics still support bigger government 55 percent to 36 percent, compared to the general public, which opposes bigger government 48 percent to 41 percent.

How are Republicans going to square that circle? It's not their position on amnesty that immigrants don't like; it's Republicans' support for small government, gun rights, patriotism, the Constitution and capitalism.

Reading these statistics, does anyone wonder why Democrats think vastly increasing immigration should be the nation's No. 1 priority?

It would be one thing if the people with these views already lived here. Republicans would have no right to say, "You can't vote." But why on Earth are they bringing in people sworn to their political destruction?

Republicans have no obligation to assist the Democrats as they change the country in a way that favors them electorally, particularly when it does great harm to the people already here.

Yes, it's great for the most powerful Americans to have lots of cheap, unskilled labor. Immigration definitely solves the rich's "servant problem."

(Approximately 5 million times a day, MSNBC expresses bewilderment that any Republicans oppose amnesty when it's supported by the Chamber of Commerce. Wow! So even people who profit by flooding the country with cheap labor are in favor of flooding the country with cheap labor!)

It's terrific for ethnic lobbyists whose political clout will skyrocket the more foreign-born Americans we have.

And it's fantastic for the Democrats, who are well on their way to a permanent majority, so they can completely destroy the last remnants of what was once known as "the land of the free."

The only ones opposed to our current immigration policies are the people.

But are they going to give John Boehner a job when he's no longer House speaker, as some big business lobbyist will?

Will they help Marco Rubio run for president on the claim that, as a Cuban, he can appeal to Hispanics? (Fat chance.)

Will they bundle contributions for Eric Cantor's re-election, as well-heeled donors will?

Will they be enough to re-elect Kevin McCarthy to Congress so he can keep his gold-plated government health insurance?

Will they be the ones writing Darrell Issa's flattering New York Times obituary?

Sorry, Americans. You lose.

Wow, common sense does rear its head once in a while. Welcome to the party!

They won’t vote for you and you want to be in the minority for eternity, hmmm.
Why are you selling out your base and inflicting an major azz kicking to the country?

With all that this commie has done and still we hear cricket’s from the chamber. It should be a land slide in November. Yet, nothing.
If I didn’t know any better I would say that something is coming and they are not afraid of the voters any more?

How much and where are they going to hide?

Just watch what all those New York, New Jersey dems will do to State Tax free Florida.

If they only learned that liberal programs lead to Long Island and New Jersey sized property taxes.

They bring their cancerous lib agenda to Florida, it will change the state where people go to get away from taxes so they can live on retirement income, to a state where they can’t make ends meet.

Great article and on point.

Read it and weep. Dhimms overtly destroying the country and Republicans doing everything they can to help them, only denying that they are playing along.

I despise the Dhimms and hate the Republican establishment.

We will soon be swamped by so many third-worlders that a conservative government will be unthinkable. Maybe we can rename the country New Ghana or Guatemala Norte.

Just think: no one in any position to do so is even trying to stop them.

Thanks America. Liberals have never had it so easy. :D

"Republicans will be a fringe party in about a decade"

Does this woman live in a box? Earth to Ann: The Republican party hasn't existed since 1989, the year Reagan left office. Every since then the Marxists have been systematically taking it over, destroying it, neutering it, castrating it, whereas today it's nothing but a shell of it's former self - the bitch of the Democrat party. The Gimp of politics that kneels by the Marxists waiting to lick arse at a moments notice.

I wish people would quit using “Asians” as a homogeneous group. The Vietnamese around here are mostly gunowners and many express dismay that the country is starting to look like it is becoming what they ran away from, especially the ones who have immigrated since 2000 when the extreme transition phase of the Communist takeover back home had settled down into a standard Communist ruled society. I know of a couple of their children born here who have gone to Viet Nam and started businesses there. They say the unofficial requirement for baksheesh is less onerous than the official corruption here that manifests in the forest of rules and taxes and fees that must be threaded.

I have read that within the Asian category. That NE Asians here voted for Romney. This means Americans of Chinese, Korean and Japanese heritage, Vietnamese would fit in this category due to their anti-communist orientation from fleeing communism

The Asians from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh vote Democrat. Muslim and Hindus

Deport illegal aliens on contact with LE.
Enforce the law vigorously on employers of illegals.
Strong border security. Build the physical fence and use high-tech surveillance.
Eliminate entitlements for illegal aliens except for true emergency care.
End the “anchor baby” policy.

Do those things and illegal aliens will deport themselves and pay for the trip.


Good list. I’d add after emergency care the deport action as well.

Bill Kristol and his famous father were stupidly open borders for years. It takes the Republicans always losing in California and elsewhere to see the fruits of his stupidity, to make him change his mind. I have been for immigration restriction and real border enforcement since 1990 and briefly exchanged words with Irvirg Kristol on this in 1991 or so
