Barack Obama is moving forward with two of his cherished goals. One is destroying the Republican Party and the other is destroying the United States of America. In both cases, Obama’s efforts are being aided and abetted by the Republican Party.
What is going on?
To call this a disaster would be an understatement.
We have been down this road before.
The first and most important thing for Americans is that we secure our southern border. This will not happen under the Obama bill. In 1986 when Ronald Reagan signed off on Amnesty, he was promised that if he agreed to Amnesty, the southern border would be secured.
Twenty-Six years later, we are still waiting.
The unsecured southern border has been a magnet for not only trafficking in illegal aliens, smuggling drugs and it is inconceivable that terrorists and weapons have not come through that border.
When Reagan agreed to Amnesty, the number of people given amnesty was supposed to be relatively small. Instead it mushroomed into millions. Almost anything was accepted as “proof” someone had been in the country prior to Amnesty. We will see the same thing here. It will not be eleven million people given Amnesty. It will be twenty million or more.
What have we seen with illegal aliens? Even though illegals are not supposed to receive welfare benefits, many are. The Obama Regime has worked with Mexico to teach illegal aliens how to apply for benefits when they get into the country.
What will happen after Amnesty?
The welfare rolls will explode.
The value illegal aliens have had to the economy is that they are cheap labor. They could be hired and paid substandard wages. Often payments were in cash and under the table so the employer did not have to pay taxes on them.
Once Amnesty is granted, employers will not be able to pay illegals substandard wages and will not be able to pay them under the table. In Mexico, public education only goes through the 6th grade and many of the illegals do not even go that far.
How are these people going to find employment in the modern American economy?
The answer is they are not. They will end up on public assistance.
Finally, this is going to destroy the Republican Party as a national party. Not only will it split the Party, it will make it all but impossible for Republicans to ever get a national majority again.
These newly legal residents, who the Obama Regime wants to put on the fast track for citizenship, overwhelmingly like big government. They overwhelmingly want lavish welfare packages.
Some Republicans are calling for Republicans to support Amnesty.
What the hell are they thinking?
The Republicans who think that Amnesty is a good idea are the same ones who told us Mitt Romney would be a great candidate.
While it would be political suicide for Republicans to deport ten million illegal aliens, particularly those who have been here for decades and have family members who are legal. For people like that who have been here ten or twenty years and have never committed a crime, let them register and they can get a “we will not deport you” card.
That is a huge difference between common sense and political suicide. The Republicans do not seem to know the difference.
