This is from an Ann Coulter column which I have edited somewhat.
The full article is at the link as always.
I guess this caught my eye cos it is so darn personal to us. I won’t go into the whole boring story again, except to say my wife falls into that category of foreigners waiting in line. Although she went through that once many years ago, when it was even harder to get in and there were quotas. So it’s personal. And she hasn’t even gotten to the stage where she even joins a line. She isn’t too sure she wants to anymore either. Age and health have taken their toll, travel is difficult and that’s putting it mildly. She’s content I think, to visit when and if we are able and come in as a visitor. Now that may appear lazy to some but please trust me. You have no idea unless you’ve been through the grinder, how difficult our immigration can be, and how many hurdles are put in place. But that’s only for the law abiding person and not just white ones I want you to know. Although it’s damn well apparent there are some who seem to have an automatic green light.
Coulter is right and we all know it with regard to the voters. I heard a very interesting conversation on the radio on just this subject. That is, the new American voter with growing power. And they are NOT white. They are Hispanic, and they tend to vote for Democrats.
Well of course they would. They’re voting their own interests, which people do. But they seem happy to be citizens while also remaining aliens. That doesn’t apply to all by any means. It certainly wasn’t true of my former wife some 46 or more years ago. But the times and the thinking among many were far different, then what they are today.
Rubio’s Amnesty: A Path to Oblivion for the GOP
By Ann Coulter
IT’S NOT AMNESTY! Rubio’s proponents cry. They seem to think they can bully Republicans the way the Democrats do, by controlling the language.
Rubio’s bill is nothing but amnesty. It isn’t even “amnesty thinly disguised as border enforcement.” This is a wolf in wolf’s clothing.
Despite all the blather about how Rubio demands “Enforcement First!” the very first thing his proposal does is make illegal aliens legal. (Don’t call them “illegal aliens”!)
The only thing the newly legalized illegal immigrants won’t get immediately is citizenship. Rubio claims that under his plan, they won’t be able to vote or go on welfare. But in practice, they’ll have to wait only until the ACLU finds a judge to say otherwise.
Even under Rubio’s scheme, all the children born to the 11 million newly legalized illegals will be instant citizens, able to collect welfare for their whole families and vote as soon as they are old enough.
Which won’t be long: The vast majority of illegal aliens are Hispanic, and Hispanics have a higher teen birthrate than any other ethnic group. In California, a majority of all Hispanic births are illegitimate. That’s a lot of Democratic voters coming.
And look how great that’s turned out! With Hispanics on track to become the largest ethnic group in California this year, the state that gave us Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan is incapable of electing any Republican statewide anymore. Taxes keep going up, and there’s no one left to pay the bill.
That will be our entire country if Republicans fall for Rubio’s phony “Enforcement First!” plan. Perplexingly, some Republicans seem determined to turn the whole nation into California, in the foolish hope of winning one last election.
No border can be secure when the pot of gold on the other side is an American green card. (Again playing games with language, Rubio doesn’t call the right to legally live and work here a “green card,” but in practical effect, that’s what it is.)
So when exactly does the enforcement part of Rubio’s “Enforcement First!” plan kick in? Answer: Never.
Or rather, enforcement becomes both impossible—because nothing will stop them if legalization is the lure—and irrelevant—because there’s no penalty for leaving the border wide open.
Even if enforcement “fails,” are the 11 million illegals already legalized by Rubio going to be asked to leave? Of course not.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is a Republican who—as a Princeton and Harvard Law graduate—does not yearn for “strange new respect” from the elites. This week, he said of Rubio’s amnesty plan: “To allow those who came here illegally to be placed on such a path is both inconsistent with rule of law and profoundly unfair to the millions of legal immigrants who waited years, if not decades, to come to America legally.”
If only other Republicans didn’t ride the tea party to victory before realizing they really just want to be John McCain.
Hey you could always do what my high powered attorney brother did when he retired - he squatted in his wife’s homeland - Canada - until they finally accepted him (10 years). If lawyers don’t care about the law - what does it matter any more. Most politicians don’t either.
I’m against Rubio - as this amnesty thing is only to allow him to run as President - his parents were criminal illegal invaders when he was born and (after 19 years) did not become citizens until he was 4 years old. [For those who want to hold up Chester Arthur as an example - Arthur’s mother was born and raised in America - thus he had a CITIZEN parent (27 years old) old enough to confer citizenship on him at birth - and it is the 2000s not 1829]
America is NOT the World, it was, is and should remain the beacon for the oppressed of the World to come to, assimilate in and help lift up and guide the World to a better place. Not be dragged down into the cesspool that so much of the World is wallowing in.
Don’t ever give up the fight - if you do - they win.
Lets be fair about this. Black unemployment in America is around 14.whatever% here. Mexican unemployment is only around 5.7% there. So how about we make a deal to trade each illegal brown man for one out of work black man. Win Win.
