-- Many conservatives reject President Obama's recent policy to defer action against illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children. --
Many "Conservatives" are nothing more than Progressives in drag. Anti-immigration bias stems directly from economic protectionism (that is, economic fallacy) and simple chauvinism, all the staples of Progressivism. Most contemporary anti-immigration laws and quotas were the DIRECT RESULT of Progressive policies, starting in 1924. You can't have the promised Paradise On Earth if it's "soiled" by foreigners, especially if these are *gasp!* Catholic! OMG!
True Conservatives respect NATURAL Law, limited government and freedoms. Faux conservatives are nothing more than socialists.
