Today we sit on the precipice of disaster. Word is coming down from sources inside Washington that Senate Republicans are close to coming to an agreement with the White House and Senate Democrats on a comprehensive immigration reform bill that will provide amnesty to the nearly 20 million illegal immigrants currently in the U.S.
If this happens not only will our welfare system be strained further as more illegal aliens will stream across the border hoping for another amnetsy but the Democrat party will have a strangle hold on our federally elected offices. Here is what several leading Democrats have to say about it:
Top Democratic leaders and activists see Hispanic migration as a long-term opportunity for the party. The arrival of additional immigrant workers is bad for blue-collars," Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, told National Journal late last year. But immigrants can help elect Democratic majorities, and if [a Democratic Congress] were to significantly strengthen unions, then you would offset the negative effect on the income of workers," he said. (National Journal, 5/12/07)It's not too late to stop this. Contact your Senators TODAY and demand they do not permanently give away our representation to a party bent on creating a welfare society dependent on the federal government.
"Somehow," said a Democrat lawmaker who is trying to build Republican support, "we have to convince them that voting for comprehensive reform does not amount to 'enfranchising their defeat,'" a reference to the likelihood that two of every three new Latino voters would cast Democratic ballots. Our problem," he admitted, is that we are hoping that the legislation will build the Democratic electorate." (National Journal, 2/10/07)
Democratic leaders say Republican backing is critical, both to ensure passage of a bill in the Senate and to protect newly elected moderate and conservative Democrats in the House, some of whom campaigned against legalizing illegal immigrants. (New York Times, 3/23/ 07)
"As the number of legal Hispanics increases, the number of Democratic votes increases as well." (Democratic "insider", National Journal, 4/14/07)
"Taking immigration off the table as a red-meat issue for conservative Republicans would be very helpful in a presidential year . . . ." (Democratic Insider", National Journal, 4/14/07)
