Phyllis Schlafly on Immigration Reform: Why Can’t the GOP Listen To Reason?

Rove’s Amnesty Wedding is ON again it seems! It was disorganized most of the summer, and all but stalled in September after the town halls. There was not enough support or time to legislate, but on October 1st, Steve King warned of backroom deals that were being worked up, to keep watchful. Sure enough, here we are.  With a dowry the size of this bride’s and aggressive donors who are heck bent on getting what they pay for, the GOPe is not about to be let off the hook that easily. The donors will not take losing lying down. Our spineless and corrupt sellouts can’t handle the pressure. Ask Paul Ryan who said this summer he’d defy John Boehner’s promise to bring a vote to the floor following the Hastert Rule. It won’t even matter if Boehner kept his word, Ryan’s ready to take him on.

These excerpts are taken from a Breitbart article: “Corporate Executives Join Soros-Backed ‘Fly-In’ Campaign to Push Amnesty”

Ali Noorani, the executive director of the Soros-funded NIF, told Bloomberg News that the effort will bring in 600 activists who plan to have personal meetings with at least 80 House Republican members.

Noorani’s organization is one where Soros has spent millions helping build support for amnesty. Soros has, over the course of several years, spent about $100 million of his own money lobbying for amnesty in the United States by creating the appearance of grassroots support for policies that he personally believes in and would likely be financially beneficial to Wall Street figures such as himself.

Marriott International CEO Arne Sorenson, also lobbying Congress for amnesty, greeted the group saying: “It is time for Congress to pass pro-growth, pro-security measures that modernize our truly dysfunctional immigration system.

The next day (yesterday), Tuesday Oct. 29, the group met with pro-amnesty leaders like Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) President Grover Norquist and American Conservative Union (ACU) President Al Cardenas at the pro-amnesty Chamber of Commerce, across the street from the White House in downtown Washington, D.C.

Republican Rep. David Valadao is backing a comprehensive House Democratic  bill to overhaul the nation’s immigration system. The California congressman said in a statement Wednesday that he is joining  with like-minded Republicans to show to the House GOP leadership that it should  deal with immigration legislation before the end of the year.

Valadao is the third Republican to back a Democratic bill that would provide a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living here illegally and tighten border security.  California Rep. Jeff Denham and Florida Rep. Ileana  Ros-Lehtinen have announced their support for the bill.

Most Republicans have shown little interest in a comprehensive bill, favoring  a piecemeal approach to addressing the issue.

Some of these lists are long: there are members or Congress in some, others have members of the Senate. But you can get the idea that the special interests are not about to cancel their wedding plans. God help us. If Amnesty passes, we all know it will be the end of our party, and the two party system as we know it. There is an avalanche of corruption. This must be scrutinized. What we must do is expose each one of these donors and their connections to our representatives.

The Senate Bill would create up to 57 million new citizens over the next 20 years, creating a subclass. Many 2nd and 3rd generation would consume more welfare and not pay in taxes what it will cost government programs they will require, including Education, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Total madness! Americans would be burdened, earning eligibility benefits per 40 quarters worked as follows:

Earnings/yr…..IN/yr……..OUT/mo.(ER)

$10,000……….$620……….$407……….66%

$20,000……….$1240………$651……….53%

$30,000……….$1860………$795……….43%

$40,000……….$2480………$939……….38%

$60,000……….$3720………$1228………33%

$80,000……….$4960………$1517………31%

$100,000……..$6200………$1678……….27%

$110,000……..$6820………$1746……….26%

$113,700……..$7049………$1771……….25%

Remember the loopholes in the bill would allow many to get away with not paying their fines or back taxes and slush funds for laRaza would help pay for them if needed. Also, the problem with a piecemeal amnesty bill being pushed is that once it is sent to the Senate, where the pieces would be thrown aside and the basic Amnesty Senate bill would take be passed.

Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Report Illegal Immigration Reform would add to the 11.1 illegal immigrants here already,
30 million immigrants in 10 years,
46 million immigrants in 20 years.
A surge of up to 57 million “new citizens”
400 million population 2030.

Adding unskilled foreign workers will result in decreased wages per worker per year, for the next 12 years. The projected Average Monthly Change in Payroll Employment 2015-2018: 171,000 jobs/mth (not enough to reduce unemployment);  2019-2023: 75,000 jobs/mth. GDP would continue to increase, but more importantly GDP per capita would increase, meaning that, on average, we will have less money to spend, that is, except for the top 1%.

And now, the voice of reason.  Time to leave the GOP house of horrors and turn to the lady who should have their ear. Why are they stuck on F.A.I.L?  Why do they insist on pushing an agenda that will damage (and end) not only the part according to Phyllis Schlafly, bu the country itself?  They all belong behind bars for tricking us in the dead of night and without our knowledge. WE don’t want Amnesty. How many ways can it be expressed?

Phyllis Schlafly

By Phyllis Sclafly

First Lady of the Conservative Movement Phyllis Schlafly has an incisive article on Townhall explaining why conservatives – and establishment Republicans – should oppose President Obama’s push for amnesty for illegal aliens.

As Mrs. Schlafly points out, “The current level of legal immigration to America adds thousands of people every day whose views and experience are contrary to the conservative value of limited government… Under current law, 1.1 million new legal immigrants come in every year. The Congressional Budget Office projections indicate that amnesty, plus its scheduled increases in legal immigration, will add an additional 4.6 million new voters by 2014.”

More to the point, Phyllis Schlafly documents that “An enormous body of survey research shows that large majorities of recent immigrants, who are mostly Hispanic and Asian, hold liberal views on most policy issues and therefore vote Democratic two-to-one. Their motivation is not our immigration policy; it is economic issues.

“The 2008 National Annenberg Election Survey found that 62 percent of immigrants prefer a single government-run health care system. The 2010 Cooperative Congressional Election Study found that 69 percent of immigrants support Obamacare, and the Pew Research Center found that 75 percent of Hispanic and 55 percent of Asian immigrants support bigger government.”

It is also worth noting a Harris poll Mrs. Schlafly cites that “found that 81 percent of native-born Americans believe the schools should teach students to be proud of being American, compared to only 50 percent of immigrants who had become naturalized U.S. citizens. Only 37 percent of naturalized citizens (compared to 67 percent of native-born citizens) think our Constitution has a higher legal authority than international law.

The Pew Research Center reported in 2011 that, of all groups surveyed, Hispanics have the most negative view of capitalism in America — 55 percent. This is even higher than the supporters of Occupy Wall Street.”

What’s the bottom line in Mrs. Schafly’s article?

The data do not support the notion that immigrants are social conservatives.

As Mrs. Schlafly notes in quoting Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute, “It is not immigration policy that creates the strong bond between Hispanics and the Democratic Party, but the core Democratic principles of a more generous safety net, strong government intervention in the economy, and progressive taxation.”

The current level of immigration, even without amnesty, will add nearly 15 million new potential voters by 2036, a large share of whom will favor the left. To allow this to happen will make Republicans a permanent minority party.

Now here’s a key point for conservatives to act upon during this week’s Big Business pro-amnesty fly-in: “The pro-amnesty New York Times gleefully reported on Oct. 26 the front-page news that big-business leaders and Republican big donors are gearing up for a “lobbying blitz,” backed up by money threats, to get Congress to pass amnesty. Big business wants amnesty in order to get more cheap labor and keep wages forever low, and that is a gross betrayal of the legal immigrants who hope to rise into the middle class and achieve the American dream.

These big donors poured $400,000,000 into the campaigns of losing establishment-backed Republican candidates in 2012. They would rather elect Democrats than conservative, social-issue Tea Party-type grassroots Republicans who don’t take orders from the establishment.

Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, summed it up for Mrs. Schafly when he said: “I think it would be crazy for the House Republican leadership to enter into negotiations with (Obama) on immigration, and I’m a proponent of immigration reform. … He’s trying to destroy the Republican Party, and I think that anything that we do right now with the president on immigration will be with that same goal in mind, which is to destroy the Republican Party and not to get good policies.”

We agree with Phyllis Schlafly – If the Republican Party is to remain nationally competitive, it must defeat amnesty in every form.
