Ann Coulter is absolutely correct! The US taxpayers have been betrayed by BOTH the Democrats and the Republican on Immigration. We ALREADY reformed Immigration Law back in 1986? Remember IRCA, also called Reagan’s Amnesty of 1986? It had TWO parts 1) a “One Time Only” amnesty for illegal aliens who had resided in the US for several years. 2) a promise to STRICTLY enforce immigration laws and workplace verification of legal residency. The first part legalized 2.8M illegal aliens. The second part was ignored by Democrats eager for votes and Republicans eager for subsided “cheap” labor (social costs shifted to taxpayers). Now, another 10 to 20 million illegals are in the USA and costing taxpayer over $100B/year.
The actual Republican Establishment –- political consultants, The Wall Street Journal, corporate America, former Bush advisers and television pundits -- are exhorting Mitt Romney to flip-flop on his very non-Establishment position on illegal immigration.

Both as governor of Massachusetts and as a presidential candidate, Romney has supported a fence on the border, E-Verify to ensure that employees are legal and allowing state police to arrest illegal aliens. He is the rare Republican who recognizes that in-state tuition, driver's licenses and amnesty are magnets for more illegal immigration.

These positions are totally at odds with Establishment Republicans who pander to...
