Skip to comments.Little hope for GOP on immigrants, study shows; legalization won’t change wave
Posted on 04/15/2014 6:54:37 AM PDT by C19fan
An influx of immigrants has boosted the Democratic Party, and that trend is set to continue. Even in places where Republicans support legalization of illegal immigrants, the party hasnt been able to stem those changes, according to a study being released Tuesday. James Gimpel, a professor at the University of Maryland, said in a report being released by the Center for Immigration Studies that many of those in the recent wave of immigrants trail native-born Americans on education and skills and favor a broader scope for government action, which makes them ideal recruits for the Democratic Party.

But, but....RINO Republicans are, have been, telling us they’re only doing this as an “act of love”. The farthest thing from their feeble appeasing misdirected minds is actually trying to get votes out of it./s
Certainly true here in Maryland.
Legal immigrants vote Dem here.
If the goal is to get their votes amnesty wont do it.
Never say never. Always avoid always.
I was encouraged by the number of Hispanic Christians who protested against sodomy in the capital of Rhode Island last year...they were numerous and LOUD.
Frankly, the University of Maryland’s professor may have his own reasons for coming to his conclusion.
The demographic destruction of America is underway.
Agreed. America is undergoing a Third World conquest.
They’re not coming for the freedom. They’re coming for the “free stuff”. People like that will never vote for GOP candidates.
He was a bad choice in so many ways. Who was his base that got him through the primaries to be at the top of the Republican ticket?
I really want to know where his support came from so I can tell them how thoroughly they screwed the Republican party.
Seriously. What was Bush's base?
It would be hard to break the trend because though they possibly could vote against “same sex unions” in general elections, they would also tend to vote for those who give the most in government programs. I believe studies have shown that.
I’ve heard it said before Hispanics dislike Democrats but dislike Republicans more.
Of course, these are general statements to which there are going to be exceptions.
Agree wholeheartedly about Bush. We could have gotten a LOT worse in Gore, who would have opened the borders even quicker. But Bush was a slow cancer, laying the groundwork for our current policies/edicts.
Pat Buchanan got a lot of flack from conservatives and libs as a candidate, but I’m coming to realize how right he was and still is about American culture and our urgent responsibility to protect it at all costs. Pat would have been the most stalwart border/culture guard we could ever have gotten. And in being so, he could have conserved the distinct American culture for perhaps two more decades.
Agreed. America is undergoing a Third World conquest.
Enabled by both parties for their own selfish ends.
Not the recent wave of immigrants,
the recent wave of illegal aliens.
Agreed. Our politicians have become so rotten that they need to be removed from office naked. I no longer believe that the ordinary political processes can cure our political/economic problems. We are being controlled by people who are indifferent to the nations over all welfare and are concerned only about their own personal benefit.
“many of those in the recent wave of immigrants trail native-born Americans on education and skills and favor a broader scope for government action, which makes them ideal recruits for the Democratic Party”
To paraphrase Jorge Arbusto, “they’re just swelling the ranks of the leftists that Americans won’t swell.”
...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.[Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg]
Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...[Posted on 04/21/2013 1:52:42 PM PDT by SoConPubbie]

Libertarians for socialism
Saw your post earlier, I read all of those books like “Death of a Superpower”, “where the right went wrong” and others. Great reads.
Some of Pat’s books on this webpage for others: http://buchanan.org/blog/pjb-shop Libraries even carry some of these and the ones I mainly read were concise but rather quick to read, 200 pages or so.
The harder task is to assimilate immigrants and their children.
You can't do immigration out of Latin America, in the manner that we've been doing it, - every single year, and not wind up with a voting block that skews to the left.
Year in, and year out, the majority of Latin American immigrants come from the lower end of the socioeconomic ladder.
And those type of Hispanics, both here as well as throughout Latin America itself, wind up voting for left-of-center/liberal candidates on election day.
