Just two days after President Barack Obama sailed to re-election over Mitt Romney, boosted by more than 70 percent of the Latino vote, some Republicans are striking a new tone on illegal immigration.

There is no way republicans or conservatives should reward Latinos and democrats with a immigration reform bill. 70% of Latinos voted for Obama in most areas of the country. If there is an immigration reform deal, Obama will get the credit and that number will rise to 80%. Republicans will be blamed by Harry Reid and others for being too rigid and not making the deal liberal enough. The most important thing in any immigration deal is to first secure the border. Obama will never do that. He might agree to it, but then would double-cross Republicans after it was over. Not only does Obama not want a real fence on the border, he has cancelled the virtual fence. Republicans should never do an immigration deal unless they control the White House. They should stall and prepare a plan for the 2016 GOP candidate to run on. Only a Republican can get immigration reform done based on history.
The California Republican party went in decline after the passage of Proposition 187. Look it up, it wasn’t amnesty. Latinos took it as an attack on themselves, due to their ethnicity, and reacted accordingly.
I think the Dems will do it for them..no matter what they do the couontry is ruled by radical left now..no one has a choice about anything
hispanics are so networked its beyond scary,
LOL. I watched a Burger King in OAKLAND go from all black employees to all hispanic overnight when they hired a Hispanic manager. It was 100%. Not a single afro left.
The same thing will now happen to blacks in the Democratic Party. Too the back of the bus they go!
The GOP wants Amnesty and want to ram it through now so we forget about it. These fools have no clue how close they are to losing the base COMPLETELY for 2014. I am nearly back to voting for Perot levels of disgust with these loser morons.
This whole campaign is directed at demoralizing the GOP base and making sure that conservative positions are socially marginalized.
It is depressing to see Hannity climb on the power-at-any-cost bandwagon.
The only way this will stop is if conservative controlled states and localities simply say "no" and act to boot illegal aliens and punish their employers no matter what the Feds or the Fed courts say.
Make them send in the army on behalf of illegal aliens-- I want to see them try that.
He never tried to stop it. The supreme court said it was a tax. Tax bills must come from the house. Obomacare came from the senate. Therefore, it's not law. The Republicans can stop it. They just don't want to.
In Washington, there is only one party. They just play good cop/bad cop to keep us believing there's really a difference. That's why the Republican elite wants the Tea Party destroyed. They're getting in the way. If they get any more power, the deceit might get exposed.
Remember, RINOs are democrats. They just keep the (R) after their names to win elections in the districts. Once they get to Washington, no one pays attention to what they're doing anymore.
I spoke with West’s FL office, earlier this morning. It’s still close, the counting continues. Say a prayer that we get to keep this fine American as a Rep.
Actually, for Hannity, this is just a return to the first position I heard him express on illegal aliens. I first heard him during the early ‘90s when he was only on WGST in Atlanta. Occasionally, he’d get a call from someone who thought the increasing number of immigrants and illegals in Georgia was a problem.
Hannity would jump all over them and practically called them racists, then mention his Irish immigrant ancestors, “No Irish Need Apply”, and generally refuse to even consider the possibility that uncontrolled immigration was a problem.
He was like that for years until 9/11/2001 happened. That is when he found enough backbone to began addressing the problems of uncontrolled immigration and open borders. He could cast it as national defense and thus he became an opponent of amnesty and uncontrolled immigration.
Now it looks like he’s decided to return to something closer to his squishy, unprincipled positions of the early ‘90s for political expediency.
Anyone who wants “Immigration Reform” should be prohibited from locking their house doors.
If they don’t want us to be able to secure our national “doors”, they shouldn’t be able to secure their personal doors.
America is doomed.
The rap sheet on Boehner starts in November 2010, following the “shellacking”, and goes all the way to today. It is a long rap sheet filled with capitulation and unkept promises. Remember the promise to $1 Trillion? They cut about $80 Billion (less than 1/10 of the promise) Remember the debt ceiling cave in and the Obama Boehner golf game? Remember that. Boehner does his work on the golf course and in bars, and yet he’s going to keep being Speaker?
Go back and look at the GOP and Boehner’s “Pledge to America” and come back and tell us what of that pledge ever came close to fruition.
The Speaker of the House, doesn’t need to be in elected office. Even is Allen West loses, he can still be Speaker.
Reform is BS mass deportation is need to cure the problem,operation wet back worked no reason why it won’t work.
Congerss took down the fence.
Thanks for the update on Allen West.
I hope he will be Speaker
Thank you! I did not know that. You think it's possible?
Boehner needs to go
