Why is there such a push for immigration reform?

Here it isn`t even in the top ten of voter`s concerns.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/01/27/what-voters-actually-care-about-in-one-ch...  

 

Yet it`s being pushed like armageddon.  It isn`t going to do Americans any good, if you have a job it`s just more competition for your job, if you`re on the welfare dole, it`s more competition for your entitilement dollars, more strain on the nation`s infrastructure, so more taxes for those that pay taxes.  Immigration is a lose-lose for everybody.......except! big evil businesses that want cheap labor all subsidized by the US taxpayer.

 

That shows the Democrats are right in the hip pocket of big evil business.

Chamber of commerce types want cheap labor, that's understood, and the democrats want the voters.   I'm not sure what the rank and file think is in it for them except lower wages.  Suckers for the party line I guess.

Shifty thinks that the Mexican dentist is going to move north so he doesn't have to drive so far.

Re: Former GOP Speaker weighs in...

I keep hearing "we must we must we must"....Why?  If the 11 million that broke the law and want to  WORK  here and if we are so stupid as to allow that well, then by all means give them a green card to WORK  and when we get the goody used out of them...send `em back..it`s Mexico`s problem. 

 

If Mitt Romney had gotten the entire "Hispanic" vote he would`ve still lost.  And Mexicans are very liberal, they`ve come from a socialist country, that`s run by druglords, I don`t see that there`s anything that the Republicans can do to butter them up.

 

Okay, here is the question that liberals can never answer: If we grant citizenship to the 11-30 million illegals, what are we going to do with the next wave of illegals that come in?  And if there is no consquences for being illegal, why won`t more illegal waves be coming?

 

If politicians don`t have the backbone to stop this now, imagine how much worse it will be in 5 years with 11 million more Mexican voters????  You can kiss the borders and America`s sovereignty, Good-bye.

Re: Former GOP Speaker weighs in...

It seems that the word "reform" is used in conjunction with the term "pathway to citizenship", you supose the two have something in common?

Democrats aparently won`t support any "reform" that does not include a "pathway to citizenship".

Nor should they.

 

And Hassert is right that it woulld be good for the GOP.  Latinos are actually quite conservative on many social and cultural issues (largely Roman Catholic) and GOP support for reform that included securing the borders (there have been rather few coming in from our neighbors to the southfor some time now) and an opportunity for citizenship might attract them to some other GOP planks.  

 

Of course Ol' Denny is talking about the GOP that he served in.  Not the one that is currently fighting an internal civil war.  The one that is having it's best candidates challenged and primaried by baggers all over the country.
