Pseudo-debt crisis deferred, the president is set to return to his original agenda and push through immigration “reform”. He promised to transform America, and unfortunately for the nation, he hasn’t forgotten that pledge.
Republicans’ new worst fear isn’t defaulting on America’s debts. If an immigration policy favored by the White House and Senate Democrats should become law, 17.3 million newly legalized immigrant voters would emerge by 2036, eager to reward the party that gave them a path to citizenship.
The White House has shifted gears and put its policy team in immigration overdrive, zooming past the debt crisis that threatened to sink the republic and on to the task of normalizing the estimated 11 million U.S. residents who have no legal basis for being there.
The Democrat-dominated U.S. Senate passed a bill in June that would provide a citizenship path for those who have been in the U.S. since the end of 2011. But as with the early days of the debt crisis and the partial government shutdown, Republican leaders in the House of Representatives aren’t eager to consider it.
The Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C. think-tank, projects that the Senate bill, S.744, would add 17.3 million new legal, voting-age U.S. residents to 14.9 million whom analysts already expect to appear without the proposed law.
‘To place these figures in perspective,’ writes Steven Camarota, the group’s director of research, ‘the last four presidential elections were decided by 4.5 million votes on average.’
Some in the Stupid Party seem willing to help him with this because they assume that Latinos are somehow “natural Republicans”. They aren’t, and Obama and his crowd know this – they pitched ObamaCare to Latinos specifically to win in 2012. Now, ObamaCare applications are encouraging and enabling recipients to register to vote.
Mexicans in particular will never vote in significant numbers for Republicans.
“For historical reasons to do with the nationalisation of the land under Lázaro Cárdenas and the predominant form of peasant land tenure, which was “village cooperative” rather than based on individual plots, the demand for “land to the tiller” in Mexico does not imply an individual plot for every peasant or rural worker or family. In Mexico, collectivism among the peasantry is a strong tradition … one consequence of these factors is that the radical political forces among the rural population are on the whole explicitly anti-capitalist and socialist in their ideology. Sometimes this outlook is expressed in support for guerilla organisations; but struggle movements of the rural population are widespread, and they spontaneously ally with the most militant city-based leftist organisations.”
Again, all this is known to the Democrats – their push to bring this about is as great a danger to the Republic as their desire to bankrupt us.
