Republican Ted Cruz might just turn out to be the savior of the Republican Party, if there’s time:
“This is urgent,” Cruz wrote in an e-mail to supporters. “We must stop this Gang of 8 immigration bill, which would give amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants with no guarantee of a secure border.”
“The Senate debate is in the final stages and we need to send Washington a strong signal of the overwhelming grassroots opposition to this amnesty bill from Americans across the country,” Cruz explained.
Cruz is right.
Dr. Steven Camarota, Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies says if the immigration bill passes you can kiss the Republican Party goodbye. Dr. Camarota speculates that the Hispanics who would become legal are the reason why the Republican Party will become marginalized but the real reason will be because Americans will stop supporting them.
What we’re hearing from Republicans are the following reasons why these illegals should be allowed to stay:
- They’re already here
- We lack the political power to make them leave
- The Democrats are calling us racists
- We really hope these immigrants will vote for us
- We have no plan of our own
- We’re losing the war of ideas and principles it’s easier to flop
And that just about sums it all up.
Americans don’t want to see law breakers rewarded. If you want to go someplace where everybody cuts in line and nobody cares go to Europe.
Admitting so many low skilled, uneducated workers at once will depress wages.
There are many Republicans who aren’t into Conservatism they’re into supplying cheap labor to Big Business which donates money to their campaigns. These businesses want cheap labor and the recipients of their lobbying money want to give it to them so they can get more money in the future.
And make no mistake about it… in a down economy dumping that many people into the legal labor pool will lower wages and hurt the Blue Collar and the working poor.
Quislings like Marco Rubio need to be marginalized and Conservatives like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee need to be supported. A border fence needs to be built and lawbreakers need to go back to their home countries.
Make no mistake about it… if this immigration bill passes because of Republican support there’s going to be a major schism in the party and we’ll be seeing President Hillary Clinton in 2016.
