Skip to comments.Top GOP donors tell party to legalize illegal immigrants
Posted on 07/30/2013 11:11:46 AM PDT by markomalley
Nearly a hundred top Republican officials sent a letter to the House GOP on Tuesday urging lawmakers to pass a bill that legalizes illegal immigrants, arguing that the current system is already allowing them to stay and so it makes sense to register them and bring them into the system.
The donors, led by former Bush administration Cabinet officials Carlos Gutierrez and Spencer Abraham, also said that immigrants are potential Republican voters who can be won over if the party can be seen as welcoming to immigrants.
Doing nothing is de facto amnesty. We need to take control of whom we let in our country and we need to make sure everybody plays by the same rules, the donors said in their letter.
They aimed their pitch at House Republicans, who are trying to figure out a way forward and find themselves trapped between angry rank-and-file voters who say legalizing illegal immigrants amounts to amnesty, and party elites and donors who say the GOP cannot survive nationally without embracing legalization as part of a strategy to win over Hispanic voters.

Lets send them packing!
Republicans have stepped on my last nerve!
Are these the
“parity donors” who give to both sides.
this is a bs story.
I'd like to see that list........
Time for the Freedom Party...inside the GOP...we pick a candidate to run against the RINO..we always split the vote..
Just think of everything you buy everyday and it and its finished product, i.e, lettuce, tomatoes, fast-food hamburgers, chicken, all that. Landscaping and remodeling companies. Target.
I also noticed alot of Utah groups including Romney connections....
Romney would have knifed us in the Back......
No more Mormons for me,....They are Rinos.
Getting rich on the backs of illegals.
A person has to believe a ‘new world order’ suits the Bush crowd very much. USA oil is not part of this/that.
Pennsylvania’s own Bob Asher and Tom Ridge are on the list I see......
See post #40 with all the names like “Karl Rove” and many, many more......
Overstock AND Melaleuca. Nice knowing ‘em. Final straw.
I guess the RNC no longer needs donations from their FORMER base. They can manage to survive with $$ from the Amnesty lovers/Traitors...like Karl Rove, Dan Quayle, Carlos Gutierrez, et al.
Look at the names of traitorous RINOS, on that list, including business folks, (of course).
Standing out for all to see: Karl Rove.
Do nothing until Republicans control the Congress. And I mean conservatives Republicans.
“The donors, led by former Bush administration Cabinet officials Carlos Gutierrez and Spencer Abraham, also said that immigrants are potential Republican voters who can be won over if the party can be seen as welcoming to immigrants.”
Bullshit. They will never vote in large numbers for Repubs. Maybe these idiots can tell us how the level of Hispanic support for George H.W. Bush rocketed “up” to 31% in 1988 (Reagan got 37% in ‘84), just two years after the passage of the 1986 amnesty.
Hispanics generally like big-government programs, such as Obamacare. No amount if destructive pandering will win them over.
“Coming Soon to An Election Near You: Sarah Palins Right Wing ‘Freedom Party’”
That can’t come soon enough. Though I think migrating to an already-existing organization like the Constitution Party would be more effective. The infrastructure already is in place.
The GOP is dead anyways. There’s precious few leaders with cojones and the ones who do would fit in perfectly with a Freedom Party.
The reason the defacto amnesty argument can be made is because the federal government from top to bottom has been refusing to do its job to protect our borders.
In a way, it’s like someone not paying their mortgage or rent for several months, then telling the bank or the landlord, “Under the present system, we already have a mortgage/rent free arrangement.”
Ever since the Country Club Rockefeller Republicans shoved Poppy onto Renauldus Magnus' ticket in 1980.
The GOP may have to get smaller before it ever gets bigger.
