The GOP's Immigration Mess

Every month, 50,000 Latino's reach voting age. FIFTY THOUSAND! EVERY MONTH! And the GOP was stupid enough to alienate these people. Years of their harsh anti-immigration rhetoric has done its damage. Though the bigger issue for the GOP may be that Asian-Americans---the most educated AND highest earning demographic--voted for Obama by an 80-20 margin. It's not about "freebies", it's about respect and decency. Of the ten richest counties in the US, eight went for Obama. Of the ten most educated states in America, ALL went for Obama. While nine of the ten poorest states went for Mitt. But yeah, keep telling yourself it's about "freebies". LOL

No, tell me that Hispanics voted for Democrats because they were worried about who Romney would appoint to the District court, who would be his Secretary of State and Agriculture Secretary. That ethanol subsidy must have been foremost in their minds!

Regan gave them Annesty and the following election less voted Republican than before! The respect he gave them did not overcome the free stuff. 80% of those who voted couldn't tell you today what a form1040 is for.

We need a base closing commission or a Simpson-Boles to study the situation because there are not 10 elected politicians who would cast an unpopular vote if they thought it would cost them the next election.

As you see, people make up all kinds of excuses to deny facts!

The excreta's all in your head, Carlos. News flash: Big businessmen can be Republicans, too. Go back to your trailer park.

On Saturday I will be debating Mark Kirkorian on immigration policy before the National Review Institute.

I am a "wet," on the topic. Have been since I opposed California's proposition 187 in 1994.

Mark, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, is a "dry."

Here's the interesting thing about out "debate," to be moderated by National Review's Jim Geraghty: Even if one or the other of us succeeds in persuading everyone in the room of our point of view, it doesn't matter. Not a lick. The GOP is branded as an anti-immigrant party, especially with voters under 30, the...
