Pelosi: Republicans Would Pass Immigration Reform for the Irish
Breitbart ^ | 04/11/14 | William Bigelow

Posted on 04/11/2014 6:39:11 AM PDT by nhwingut

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has judged the GOP—and found it racist.

Speaking at her weekly press briefing Thursday, she said cuttingly that the reason the GOP has not followed through on a comprehensive immigration reform bill was simple; the GOP would be comfortable with good ol’ white Irishmen immigrating to the United States but not people of another color.

I am going to guess that not many black or brown people live in Nancy’s neighborhood. Nancy “Good for thee, not for me” Pelosi.

So—if thousands of Irish came here illegally, she would be good with that?

Isn’t that rassist?

If the libs weren’t certain that the vast majority of illegals would eventually vote democrat, they wouldn’t care a whit if they died of thirst in the desert.

Want to see the Dems oppose open immigration? Just open it to immigrants with very conservative views.

Nancy seems to forget that a Congress of which she was a member voted to allow more Irish to immigrate to the United States than the percentage of the world population at the behest of Senator Edward Moore Kennedy. I wonder if she is throwing Senator Kennedy under the bus or maybe under the aircraft carrier as the case may be.

There’s the matter of Ireland being separated from us by an ocean vs Mexico having no such natural barrier to entry to the USA.

So what else is new. Nasty Nancy believes white Americans are “rasis”. What are the commie ‘RATS going to do when Barry is cooling his heals and counting his money on the beach in Hawaii and they won’t have the race card to throw around anymore? Alinskyites are morons.

Kennedy was a major cog in the '68 and '86 immigration 'reforms'. A major part of his motivation in each case was to buy Irish street cred by making sure the illegal Irish then swamping Boston and other anchor cities were favorably treated. It can be argued that the unintended consequences of giving the Irish preferential treatment the last two times immigration 'reform' was implemented have put us in the mess we're in now.

“Being Hispanic is NOT a race, its an ethnicity.”

It’s actually neither.

The people of Mexico and Spain don’t share the same ethnicity. They just speak the same language. Most Mexicans are descendants of the native population of central america.

Republican “resistance” to reform is being pictured in the way Nanacy Pelosi wants to frame it.

It does not, and never did, have a thing to do with color.

It does have a great deal to do with bringing to America persons EARNESTLY interested in personal freedom, and of good character, and with skills useful to the commerce of America as a business enterprise.

Importing of persons who only want to bring the trappings of their former place, with all its limitations and rigid rules of misconduct, with them, who are of malevolent intent, or who possess few skills to assure personal success in life, is exactly opposite to the goals and aspirations of all those generations of immigrants who have found America, adopted its ways, and prospered in the new land.

If illegals were Republicans Democrats would be hunting them down with dogs, and you can take that to the bank.

She’s heard us say this to “the Irish”? When in Good God’s name are we going to really stand up to the insane evil of leftism.

Ditto for South Americans. When the World Cup hits in June, take a look at the difference between the Spanish national team and most of the teams from Mexico on down.

I do know a few months after September 11th 2001 he tried to get legislation passed in Assachussets making it easier for Islamo students to enter the country. I remember reading that clear as day and couldn’t believe it. I don’t know if it ever passed, but right there was a pure example of how libs want to destroy the country. If it harms the USA they want more of it. “Let’s see: Islamic men in their 20s fly out from Assachussets and kill 3000 people in New York city. Oh! We gotta have more of that!”

There was a guy who built a long political career from providing specialized, insider deal immigration breaks for the Irish.

His name was Ted Kennedy.

Hispanic is not even an ethnicity, as most of the people in Latin America are a mix of many ethnic groups; there only common unity is Spanish.

At least 87% of the 1.2 million LEGAL IMMIGRANTS who enter this country annually are minorities as defined by the USG. The 1965 Immigration Act eliminated the national origins criterion. We are changing the demographics of this country thru immigration. According to the Census Bureau, we will become a majority-minority nation by 2043. By 2019 half of the children 18 and under will be minorities.

I doubt that there has ever been a nation where the original racial majority peacefully and willingly allowed itself to become the minority. This has cultural, linguistic, and electoral consequences. Immigrants and minorities vote two to one Democrat.

Pelosi would like us to continue bring in more minorities and fewer non-Hispanic whites. She is race baiting and essentially calling the Reps racists for wanting to return to some balance in the source of immigrants.

I wasn’t aware that the Irish were sneaking into the country illegally. They must be coming through the border between Ireland and Maine. No, isn’t that Canada? So where are they sneaking over the border?

I want people yearning to be free... not people yearning to get stuff for free... Old Nancy doesn't choose to see the difference.

Then again I'd be happy to “fight for the RIGHTS “ of 50 million Chinese illegals IF they promise to vote for Republicans. I'm sure old Nancy would ‘catch’ the unfairness of that... without ever seeing that's what she's doing to us. She flooding our country will illegals BECAUSE they vote for democrats.

At least Jeb Bush has deluded himself into thinking all these people will be grateful to him personally. Maybe include him in their prayers...Reminds me of Hillary thinking the people in the ME would be 'grateful' for all we've done for them. Gad, you elites are fools.

And clueless.

If all it takes is cheap flattery Nancy, maybe we should learn how to do that... Maybe then you'd protect the country you were elected to serve rather than protecting foreigners who are here illegally.
