Quotes of the day

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., has caused a minor stir with comments that the “Gang of Eight” previously decided to “de-link” border security triggers from the pathway to citizenship.

In other words, the comprehensive immigration reform package does not have to ensure that the legislation’s border security directives are actually carried out, lest former undocumented immigrant residents, newly legalized, have their path to citizenship delayed until that happens, if it ever does…

“We have de-linked the pathway to citizenship and border enforcement. You could be on a path to a million people reaching citizenship and have one bad week on the border, at which point you stop, and that’s just unacceptable,” Durbin said, according to the National Journal.

Either Marco Rubio is being played the fool or we are being played the fool by Senator Rubio. He has become the face of support for this legislation and much of the support of the legislation from those on the right has come because of the good will so many of us have for Senator Rubio…

Contrary to the advertisement, the law does not secure the border in any meaningful way, in fact the “border security on steroids” as the ad claims does not begin until after the citizenship push starts, hence the pretend effort of John Cornyn now that this has been exposed.

Contrary to the advertisement, the law will grant amnesty — it is a big play for citizenship even before the pretend efforts to secure the border take place. It is the amnesty Senator Rubio opposed in 2010, though in the advertisement he says we have right now “de facto amnesty”…

I am just shocked, knowing what we now know, that Senator Rubio would continue to support this legislation and that other conservative Senators would too.

***

When President Obama came before House Republicans in March, King recalls, he told his political opponents, “You will never win another national election again until you pass comprehensive immigration reform. Republicans, I am trying to help you.” The Iowan retorts, “I don’t know how any Republicans can think it’s a good idea to take that kind of political help from the president. He’s not trying to help us.”…

King is frank about the difficulties of going up against the charismatic Senator Marco Rubio, whose conservative credentials, heading into the immigration debate, were stellar.

“I don’t want to be in a position where I’m personally critical of Marco Rubio. I think too much of him in all other categories,” King says. “At the panel that was before the RSC last week, if that had been the four House Democrats and the four Senate Democrats advancing that bill, a whole lot of those people . . . would disagree completely with the same language they seem to be nodding their head at today.”

***

All the Establishment feeds us is lies. If the reformers are so intent on securing the border, why isn’t it secure right now? Why does that have to wait until we somehow let the last bunch of people who scoffed at our sovereignty get on their pathway to citizenship before we take the most basic step any nation must take to be a nation at all – to protect our borders?

The answer is simple – they don’t want to secure the border, they never have wanted to secure the border, and they never will secure the border, at least until forced to do so, and then only grudgingly and while employing every passive aggressive tool they can to subvert doing so…

They are scared of us, because they know that our representatives fear us and our votes more than they fear the Establishment. So they lie to us, try to rush through their scheme, and trick us into just letting it happen.

There is no immigration “crisis.” The only “crisis” is the one faced by an Establishment that needs millions of new voters to cling to power because millions of real Americans are waking up to the nightmare they have created.

***

[O]ver the past week, it seems Republicans are having a relapse. The anti-immigrant policies and rhetoric are metastasizing and causing a substantial case of amnesia about the last election.

Last week, almost every House Republican voted to amend the Homeland Security Appropriations bill to deport undocumented children who grew up in the United States, registered with the government, stayed in school, and passed criminal background checks. More than a rudimentary anti-Obama vote against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, even Republicans who support the DREAM Act felt compelled to support the King Amendment and signal to Republican voters, Latino voters and everyone else that the GOP wants to deport millions of peaceful, productive immigrants who are raising families, pursuing an education, and contributing to the American economy.

What were you thinking? You should know better. I thought you were leaving behind your get-tough-on-immigrants political games and had packed them deep in a storage unit with your “Mitt for President” buttons…

The Republicans I work with on immigration reform are smart, religious, America-loving legislators who want to establish for this nation an immigration system of which they can be rightly proud. I know you are out there. I know you understand this issue better than your recent behavior betrays. I think you can help your party get back on the path to recovery. Your nation, our nation, needs you to step up.

***

Speaking at the Bipartisan Policy Center alongside former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R), [Jeb] Bush argued passionately for a major immigration reform overhaul and said he’d made a similar case to House Republicans Thursday morning at the behest of House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.)…

Bush said the “humble advice” he gave to undecided House Republicans Thursday morning was to “change the conversation to ‘how do we restore our greatness as a nation by sustained economic growth,’” emphasizing fixing the legal immigration system rather than what to do with illegal immigrants to rejuvenate the aging American population.

“That is a winning message in conservative America, for sure,” he said.

***

After a vote on Tuesday, the Senate will now officially begin debate on an immigration reform bill. The legislation would strengthen border security and create a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants currently in the country.

A Fox News poll released Thursday finds that most voters generally favor those provisions.

The new poll shows 81 percent of voters want to strengthen border security and stop additional illegal entry into the country.

In addition, 74 percent favor finding a way for the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country to remain — and eventually become citizens — if they meet certain requirements, such as paying back taxes, learning English and passing a background check.

***

Let me respond with three numbers: 775,000, 0, and 45%.

1. The first number refers to the Democratic Hispanic Bonanza Scenario and supposed deluge of 11 million illegal immigrants/undocumented workers. What if all those folks were citizens last November? Well, of that 11 million, only 10 million are adults. And of that 10 million, only 8 million are Latino. And of that 8 million, only 3.5 million would have been voting-age citizens if undocumented Hispanic immigrants became citizens at the rate equal to that of eligible Hispanic immigrants. And of that 3.5 million, only 1.7 million would actually bother to vote. And of that roughly 1.7 million, how many of these new Latino Americans would be net Democratic votes, nationally? Just 775,000 or so, according Harry Enten, polling analyst at The Guardian. So President Obama would have done about a half percentage point better vs. Mitt Romney. Some bonanza.

2. The second number refers to the Electoral College. Wouldn’t those 775,000 net Democratic voters have flipped a few more states Obama’s way? Not one, according to RealClearPolitics polling analyst Sean Trende. Zero. And key swing states would have been only marginally more difficult to win. Obama would have done, for instance, only 0.2 percentage point better in Ohio, New Hampshire, Missouri, and Minnesota.

3. The third number refers to the average share of the popular vote that GOP presidential candidates have garnered over the past six elections, a pathetic 45%. Republicans don’t need someone to help them commit political suicide. They’re managing just fine on their own. And that deterioration might accelerate if Americans think the GOP killed immigration reform mainly because the party feared reform would produce more Democratic voters. And why wouldn’t Americans think that given the comments of some conservative pundits such as Coulter.

The Rubio Amnesty Timeline

‘In 1986, Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to 3 million people. You know what happened… There were people trying to enter the country legally, who had done the paperwork, who were here legally, who were going through the process, who claimed, all of a sudden, ‘No, no, no, no. I’m illegal.’ Because it was easier to do the amnesty programme than it was to do the legal process.’

- Candidate Marco Rubio, 29 November 2009

‘If you grant amnesty, the message that you’re sending is that if you come in this country and stay here long enough, we will let you stay. And no one will ever come through the legal process if you do that.’

- Candidate Marco Rubio, 29 November 2009

‘He would have voted for the McCain plan. I think that plan is wrong, and the reason I think it’s wrong is that if you grant amnesty, as the governor proposes that we do, in any form, whether it’s back of the line or so forth, you will destroy any chance we will ever have of having a legal immigration system that works here in America.’

- Candidate Marco Rubio, 28 March 2010

‘Earned path to citizenship is basically code for amnesty.’

- Candidate Marco Rubio, 24 October 2010

‘We have to be the pro-legal immigration party. We have to be a party that advocates for a legal immigration system that’s good for Americans, good for America and honours our tradition both as a nation of immigrants and as a nation of law.’

- Senator Marco Rubio, 5 October 2011

‘But, at the same time, on the left there are those that are using this issue for pure politics creating unrealistic and unreasonable expectations among those in the Latino community across this country.

Figure out a way to accommodate them in a way that does not encourage illegal immigration in the future.’

- Senator Marco Rubio, 27 January 2012

‘We have to deal with the people that are here now in a way that’s responsible but humane, and this does that. This allows people the access to make their status at this moment legal.’

- Senator Marco Rubio, 28 January 2013

From a NumbersUSA email: Morale of the email. Keep calling and hammering away. Every.Single.Day

“Roy also mentioned that the media consistently ask why the grassroots opposition is not as worked up as it was in 2007. He urged call participants not to fall into that trap. Our opposition is strong and growing, especially now that a bill is in play. The calls peaked late in 2007, too. NumbersUSA knows that over 100,000 opposition calls went into Senators’ offices just on Monday and Tuesday of this week. This didn’t shut down the new, more efficient switchboard but there were times when calls were just lost because it couldn’t handle the traffic. So if the media suggest that people aren’t as motivated this time, mention this and our confidence that the numbers will grow since talk radio is now focused on the bill.”

Now that the left’s capture of the bureaucracy is nearly complete, it’s probably a wise decision to cut any legal associations with the GOP, unless you like getting audited and swatted.

HornetSting on June 13, 2013 at 11:00 PM

The GOPe (Rove, Jeb, etc) is saying that all they need to do is pass amnesty and Voila!, Republicans will have Hispanics in the bag!

Really? If that were true, then they should take a good look at history:

In 1980, Carter received 56% of the Hispanic vote while Reagan only got 37% — a difference of 19%.

In 1984, Mondale received 66% of the Hispanic vote while Reagan only got 34.82% — a difference of 31.18%.

In 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 a/k/a Simpson-Mazzilo into law, which granted amnesty to 3 million illegal immigrants, the vast majority of which were Hispanic.

In 1988, Michael Dukakis won 70.15% of the Hispanic vote while the Vice-President of the man who legalised millions of Hispanics, George H W Bush, received a mere 30.85% — a difference of 39.3%.

If Hispanics could be purchased with amnesty, then they would have overwhelmingly voted Republican in 1988. They didn’t so that should tell the “brains” in the GOP something.

Continuing on…

In 1992, Bill Clinton won 61% of the Hispanic vote while President George H.W. Bush won 25% – a difference of 36%.

In 1996, President Bill Clinton won 72% of the Hispanic vote while Senator Bob Dole received a mere 21% – a difference of 51%.

In 2000, Vice-President Al Gore won 62% of the Hispanic vote while George W Bush won only 35% – a difference of 27%.

In 2004, Senator John Kerry won 58% of the Hispanic vote while President George W Bush won 40% – a difference of 18%.

In 2008, Senator Barack Obama, who voted AGAINST President Bush’s immigration reform, won 67% of the Hispanic vote while Senator John McAmnesty won a mere 31% – a difference of 36%.

In 2012, President Barack Obama won 71% of the Hispanic vote while Mitt Romney won only 27% – a difference of 44%.

Amnesty is not the panacea that the establishment would like for you to believe.

The third number refers to the average share of the popular vote that GOP presidential candidates have garnered over the past six elections, a pathetic 45%.

And in those same elections the Democrats have managed a frightening, dominating… 48.8%.

So a margin of 3.8%, even spotting them a period where they won 4-2, and Ross Perot split away independents.

Not that the GOP isn’t finding ways to shoot itself in the foot, but standing on the same side as Chuck Schumer regarding any plan on anything anywhere isn’t the right way to remedy it.

If someone came here from another planet, having learned English from decades old radio broadcasts, they would think we had been at war with Mexico and Mexico won. Not won as big as we did against the Japaneses where there was an unconditional surrender, but pretty close to it, and we are now negotiating the almost unconditional surrender terms. How could we have been defeated by the Mexican army? We were not. Rubio and the Gang Bang Eight sabotaged all our weapons and poisoned our water supply.

Forgive my bias, it happens when a drunk illegal alien mows down a sibling and leaves him dead with a cracked skull and 3 boys without a father. Reality isn’t pretty, but then again those of your ilk don’t live in the real world.

The answer is simple – they don’t want to secure the border, they never have wanted to secure the border, and they never will secure the border, at least until forced to do so, and then only grudgingly and while employing every passive aggressive tool they can to subvert doing so…

Kurt Schlicter is dead on. But Ted Cruz needs to say something like this. No ore mincing words. We need our best politicians to start sounding like our best commenters.

Yes he did – can’t you tell? :)

Anti-Control on June 13, 2013 at 10:57 PM

….actually, Beck was last seen standing in nothing but his boxer shorts and a wife beater with his left sock in his right hand and his right shoe in his left hand alternately drawing each closer to his face and smelling them…….going back and forth between each of them to “make sure they smell the same”…….

……after spotting the camera – his head shot up as he glared into the lens shrieking:

“I’M FINE!!!! DAMMIT!!! CAN’T YOU SEE I’M FINE!!!”

…..yeah…….he’s really “helping”………

But I get your point. You think Mexicans are lower on the scale than let’s say, Cubans. Your bigotry is quite evolved.

Capitalist Hog on June 13, 2013 at 11:05 PM

Rubio is Spanish for Blond. He thinks he, being Cuban and more actual Spanish (European), is the lowly Mexicans’ (more Indian) patron and master. He wants to be their King Louie only without the ending.

To use the term hispanic is to say that being Chiliean is the same as being Mexican or vice versa. It’s multicutural gobblydgook.

williamg on June 13, 2013 at 10:44 PM

That’s not what I said. I don’t want violence, but I’ve never said that it is impossible.

WHAT I did say, my love, is that I don’t want to be in a big building with bad acoustics with you and Barack Obama because you have an itchier trigger finger than Lieutenant Henry S Farley of the Confederate Army, who fired the first shot of the Civil War.

If a book was dropped in that building, you’d open fire and the Secret Service would return it. Meanwhile, I would have hit the deck.

Luv ya, my gun-toting, cuter-nutter, who happens to control nuclear power plants. That still freaks me out. lol

Resist We Much on June 13, 2013 at 10:56 PM

Oh – I know what you said….I wasn’t trying to “call you out”……I was trying to be “subtle”…..probably not my best play……….

In that situation, though – you’d probably want to wear a “vest” if you’re in there with the SS and Barack……….

…….This whole situation is just getting uglier and uglier and who would not want to see Juan McCain’s head explode? We are surrounded by traitors……
