Grover Norquist: FAIR Immigration Pledge Will Divide GOP
Newsmax ^ | Courtney Coren

Posted on 05/08/2014 8:20:49 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

The problem with the pledge recently crafted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which asks lawmakers to vow not to support immigration reform that would include amnesty, is that it's not an issue that all Republicans can get behind, says Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

In 1986, Americans for Tax Reform put together a pledge for lawmakers to sign promising to "vote against and oppose all efforts to raise taxes."

Norquist not only supports AMNESTY, he's a huge Islamic apologist too. I don't give a s--t about the work he's done advocating for tax reform. He's an establishment, Ruling Class, Chamber of Communists hack.

Any politician that supports amnesty is dead to me. This is a Rule of Law, quality of life, fair labor, and national sovereignty issue all rolled into one. It is simply not up for debate and it's time Republicans simply reject this premise.

Amen to that.

Cue singing and dancing at a Baptist Church somewhere in the South.

Smart people imitate success.
Dumb people ignore success.

The solution to immigrant workers should be copied
from the most prosperous country in the world.
36% of their work force is foreign workers.
The foreign workers are given 2 year work permits.
It is illegal to hire foreign worker without a permit.
After the 2 year period elapses, the worker must return
to their country and re-apply for a new work-permit.

This country has the highest concentration of wealth in
the world. Every 6th citizen is a millionaire. Just a few
decades back the prosperity was absent.

Agree totally. I have a similar hard line on the Second Amendment.

Funny how this toad decided this was the issue to pop his head back up over. Seems he’s been laying low after the firestorm of info citing his islamic ways.

Whatever Norquist claims, he's actually "as strong on illegal immigration" as the Muslim Brotherhood.
"How the Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated the GOP" - frontpagemag.com
And a group dedicated to an Islamic takeover of America would naturally be strongly against illegal immigration!

We have this guy’s number, yet politically he survives. Why is he not shunned?

Norquist should be running a kebab shop somewhere in Yemen, not offering advice to conservative Americans. In addition to the idiocy already mentioned, apparently he would like to make Puerto Rico a state (yeah, let’s give the ‘Rats two more safe Senate seats and who knows how many in the House). What a steaming turd he has turned out to be.

He’s got money behind him, who knows what country of origin it has; and he has the undivided support of CINOs, LINOs, TPINOs, and even some FINOS.
