Republicans Against Immigration Enforcement
NRO ^ | Mark Krikorian

Posted on 05/30/2014 6:25:49 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

The House adopted two amendments related to immigration yesterday that are so elementary they should have been no-brainers for any Republican. And yet, a handful of GOP members voted no.

The first amendment requires an investigation into the reasons for the alarming criminal alien releases revealed by my colleague Jessica Vaughan. The vote was largely along party lines. It’s understandable, if lamentable, that most Democrats would vote no — they’re protecting an increasingly feckless and incompetent administration that is, alas, from their own party. Likewise, you can see why five Democrats would vote yes — they’re in tight reelection contests. But the nine Republicans who voted no have some explaining to do. They are: Denham (prime mover of the military amnesty scheme), Diaz-Balart, Heck, Peter King, McAllister, Nunes, Pearce, Shimkus, and Valadao.

Even Michael Grimm supported these amendments while opposing the 2013 amendment. Grimm is now calling for a boycott of Mexico.

They say we need immigrants.

To do the tuff jobs.

OK. How bout some people who currently have real problems, not just the fact that they were born in yet another former Spanish colony that failed (lots of those).

Bring in 10 million Ukrainians!

Staunchly anti-Communist, Orthodox in most cases, smart, capable...European.

Plus which the women are WAY better looking.

Guarantee ya most of them will speak colloquial English within a couple of years.

The illegals? Supposedly 11 million? OK. 1 million can stay.

The rest head back to Oaxaca.

Problem solved! Even a selfish oaf like Jeff Denham will have to go along.

Singapore, a country of 3.5 million citizens, needs 2 million foreign workers because of their pro-business government policies.

There is NO amnesty in Singapore. What they have is the foreign workers can a get a 2 year work-permit with a job offer. At the end o 2 years the foreign worker must re-apply for the work permit, or go back to their country.

I’ve always thought if we have open borders, heck, let’s fly people over from Europe, Asia, Africa or wherever they are trying to escape poverty instead of this immigration which is unbalanced towards Mexicans and to a lesser extent, other Latinos.

That’s what Sowell said. The poverty in Latin America is not that bad.
