Skip to comments.When Immigration is the Issue, Bachmann's the Only Real Conservative

This from an organization that promotes common-sense immigration policy:
More/links/references/pics at Reaganite Republican, inc. a useful scorecard that spells it out with links to each candidates positions, statements, proposals, and platforms re. legal and illegal immigration.
Chalk up yet another issue Michele Bachmann owns... just sayin.
Why dont ou post some of the high points for each one
Im interesting in how you got those scores for Sarah Palin and Herman Cain..
Because she actually has executive experience running or living in a border state?
I’m sure she’s a fine woman but, let’s not get carried away.
Maybe some of these candidates should take a page from President Eisenhower’s playbook. Of course that is, if they’re not part of the group(s) that profit from exploiting illegals.
30 million illegals in America are enough to fully populate more than 50 congressional districts. Add their numbers to legal democrats and consider how many more seats the democrats will own in a decade.
The fact is that the GOP is doomed to extinction within 20 years if something isn’t done right now.
Probably based on her path to citizenship stance. Scamnesty under any name is still scamnesty.
Actually, that's from Numbers USA which promotes the approach to not only eliminate illegal immigration but also eliminate all legal immigration as well. They are more of the extreme, hard line measurement- which is why you find them failing a lot of good Conservatives. While they have mellowed out a lot lately, and they are a good resource for the illegal immigration piece, it is important to understand their history. One of their founders was Algore's buddy whose purpose on ending immigration was environmental. You can still find papers on their website promoting eliminating all immigration and even promoting abortion as a population control method to 'save the environment. For example, this.. and this
This is an issue Bachmann has always been clear and has led on. Steve King is also good on this issue.
Hard to top her on this issue. If they beat around the bush and hawk that pathway baloney, it means they are weak on this issue.
It is about time people started to realize that Bachmann us the only real conservative
During the primary she is the only one so far! She deserves all the support we can giver at this time.
In 2009, Palin appeared on Greta’s show and said she agreed with McCain on the issue.
That would get you a D or worse.
Michele is the best by far on this issue.
Most of the others are in the dismal-to-pathetic range.
My observation is that pols in border states tend to be the absolute worst on illegal immigration. Too many votes and too much guilt.
Perry, for example, has a dozen big red flags waving on this issue.
Bachmann’s not my candidate, and the poster should post the direct link to this scorecard, not a link through his/her blog.
But I give Bachmann her due: she’s the only candidate so far who has spoken out consistently on illegal immigration and hasn’t played games in claiming amnesty isn’t amnesty or avoiding talk of amnesty by focusing just on ‘closing the border first’.
Sounds like you’ve got another dog in the fight, Wolf
I’m still looking at Perry and have not endorsed Bachmann yet, fwiw
“This is an issue Bachmann has always been clear and has led on. Steve King is also good on this issue.

Actually,she hasn't really given a recent opinion—in fact,being an Alaskan there wasn't much of a problem with it except for a few rascally Canucks sneaking in from the Canadian Yukon.
Need to hear what she says about it now.
What makes me laugh are these ‘path to citizenship’ people that say if the illegals don’t follow certain steps they will be deported. LOL Really? If, as they claim, that we can’t possibly round up illegals for deportation, how is it that they think they will miraculously locate them for deportation if they don’t follow those steps???
From last year
We wont complicate it any more. Lets keep it simple and lets say, No, if you are here illegally and you dont follow the steps that at some point through immigration reform were going to be able to provide, and that is to somehow allow you to work. If youre not going to do that, you will be deported you will be gone.
