Listening to the media you would believe that everybody wants amnesty for illegal aliens, even the GOP. The problem is that the American public is not for it, especially the full-blown amnesty the left is demanding. Ann Coulter, as usual, spits it out plainly and takes the GOP to task for continuously trying to follow what they believe is popular.
From Ann Coulter
Washington has tried to sneak through three amnesties in the last decade…And every time, as soon as the public got wind of what was happening, the politicians scattered like roaches…Couldn’t Republicans spare themselves the embarrassment of having to say they “learned their lesson” by learning the same lesson of the last 17 guys to push amnesty?… In early June of 2007, a Rasmussen poll found that support for “no bill” beat support for the Senate immigration bill by 5-to-3. By the end of the week, “no bill” was winning 2-to-1, with 53 percent against amnesty and only 26 percent for it. Public opposition was so vociferous, the Senate didn’t even vote on the 2007 amnesty…erstwhile Tea Party darling Sen. Marco Rubio burst on the scene deciding he was going to be the one to enact amnesty…the public found out about it and, once again, an amnesty bill died…
New Jersey governor Chris Christie, was suckered into supporting the Schumer-Rubio amnesty by a mere 20-minute conversation with Schumer…He now claims he considers a path to citizenship “extreme” and accused Hillary Clinton of “pandering” by supporting a path to citizenship…Mike Huckabee denounced a bill to require verification of citizenship before registering to vote or applying for public benefits…His current presidential website denounces “the Washington establishment” for trying to “reward illegal immigrants with amnesty and citizenship…
Instead of having to keep apologizing for their positions on immigration, maybe Republicans should stop listening to political consultants who are paid by business lobbyists to dump millions of poverty-stricken, low-wage workers on the country…Americans can see they’re being forced to subsidize people who are being brought in only to outvote them, provide cheap labor, and change our culture.
