Republicans Must Show Support for Hispanic Dreams

Republicans might as well support a path to citizenship. Logic tells us that there is no way to send 11 million Hispanics back south. Even with Obama destroying the economy the way he is, not all of them will leave. They should agree to a path to citizenship.... Once the border is secured. When we are CERTAIN we won't end up with this same exact problem in another 10 or 20 years. We did this once before under Reagan, we should learn our lessons and learn from history.

We have high unemployment right now. Hiring 1 million of the unemployed as temporary ICE means that each agent only has to locate and deport 11 illegals. The job can be done in a few years.

Securing the border is the least of it. Most important is interior enforcement, making sure jobs aren't available to them. Then they'll self-deport, just as Romney said.

Regarding "path to citizenship," they DON'T CARE about citizenship. They DON"T CARE about voting. And there's no reason to think they want to serve on juries.

All they care about is to be worry-free concerning deportation to their hellholes of origin.

So anything, including that legalizes their presence here amounts to amnesty, no matter what euphemism they cook up for it. And that's game over for the United States as a First World country.

Don't be fooled about whether or not there would be a "path to citizenship" -- it's a phony issue.

SHow me any evidence at all that this is whatt anyone really thinks will happen.

Reagan was basically promised by the Democrats that we would never see another illegal in this country again if he granted amnesty to those already here in 1986 and we see how that deal turned out.
Rarely does a political party issue a document so scathingly critical of itself and its most recent presidential nominee as the report of the five-member Growth and Opportunity Project of the Republican National Committee.

It refers to Mitt Romney on occasion as "our presidential nominee" and notes disapprovingly of his reference, in the debate about immigration, to "self-deportation."

And while the report states modestly, "We are not a policy committee," it does call for a policy -- "comprehensive immigration reform" -- that many, perhaps most, Republican members of Congress oppose.

I think there's some risk here for the Republican National Committee....
