Of all the misguided, corrupt and deranged ideas floating around inside the D.C. bubble, perhaps the single worst one is giving illegal aliens amnesty as part of some sort of attempt to capture the Hispanic vote. If the GOP were to pursue a policy that primarily benefits corrupt business owners, the government of Mexico, and Democrats at the expense of our country and our own base, we'd truly deserve the "Stupid Party" moniker that has so often been hung around our neck. This policy wouldn't be a calculated risk or even a longshot; it would be a game of Russian Roulette...
am·nes·ty [am-nuh-stee] noun 1. a general pardon for offenses, especially political offenses, against a government, often granted before any trial or conviction. 2. Law . an act of forgiveness for past offenses, especially to a class of persons as a whole. 3. a forgetting or overlooking of any past offense. Illegal aliens are in violation of immigration law, for which the penalty is deportation. Most also commit numerous felonies such as I-9, social security, and income tax fraud, fake or stolen ID, the list goes on. "Comprehensive reform" would pardon illegal aliens for these offenses and waive the penalties, if that's not amnesty what is it?
