As noted elsewhere the myth is that an illegal immigrant is socially conservative. The fact is that the law has been broken and continues to be broken again when employment is gained. Such immigrants are inevitably servants not citizens. There is no data to show that such illegal immigrants will become part of the core conservative-Republican base -- married, church going and taxpaying, On the other hand legal immigrants have a much higher likelhood of coming as citizens rather than servants and may join us in resisting Obamanism and the statism that it entails. The focus on those already here is a pure diversionary tactic and should be resisted by forcing the hand of those who claim to want to secure the border by having them vote on it.
