Posted on 04/16/2013 2:28:18 PM PDT by AuntB
Sorry Grover Norquist! Sorry Cesar Conda and your phony little boss Marco Rubio and his gang of 8 henchmen who are using SPLC talking points against MOST AMERICAN CITIZENS to pass an amnesty for your corporate bosses!
[snip] Immigration hawks worried about appearing racist can breathe a sigh of relief.
Only 11 percent of U.S. voters think people who want to secure the border and prevent illegal immigration are racist, according to a poll released this week by Rasmussen Reports. (See the wording here.)
The number was higher for liberals, with 22 percent saying they thought border security advocates were racist, according to Breitbart, which asked Rassmussenhttp://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/questions/pt_survey_questions/april_2013/questions_immigration_reform_april_1_2_2013 for the crosstab data.
Nine percent of conservatives and 6 percent of moderates said immigration hardliners are racist, according to Breitbart.
While 67 percent of the 1,000 respondents said they think border security enthusiasts aren't racist, some 22 percent aren't sure.
Rasmussen also reports: Just 29% Support Immigration Plan Without Tougher Border Control
Rasmussen Reports, April 19, 2011 Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans and 63% of voters not affiliated with either major political party oppose automatic U.S. citizenship for children born in this country to illegal immigrants. Democrats are evenly divided on the question.
BUT...the author of this new amnesty, Rubios chief of staff, Cesar Conda has called such proposals offensive. His lobbyist buddy in crime, Grover Norquist refers to us all as 'Bitter Enders'
Well, Gentlemen! YOU are the ones out of touch! Sadly, you are the ones in power.
WAKE UP REPUBLICANS! The 'modern' GOP does NOT represent you! It has been infiltrated and taken over. They have a new imported constituency!
Deportees Can Come Back Under Draft Immigration Bill
It's not enough for these quislings to let the lawbreakers stay here, they're going to bring back the ones they've deported!
‘Racism’ used to be the favorite comeback of FR’s own Clown Posse on the subject a few years ago. I guess they really were all trolls.

Oh, there’s a few left....friends of Grover.
As I’ve said many times, all I want is to treat our southern border the same way Mexico treats hers.
lol! The fringe leftist kooks in my family are part of that 11%.
“As Ive said many times, all I want is to treat our southern border the same way Mexico treats hers.”
Mexico really mistreats their ‘immigrants’. I don’t want to hurt them, we just need to keep them out. None of our ‘leaders’ care anything about these aliens...they care about BIG donations from Microsoft, et al. It’s all about money and power.
“lol! The fringe leftist kooks in my family are part of that 11%. “
You have my deepest sympathies.
Ask them to name a country that doesn’t police their borders and enforce immigration law. And have them prove it.
“Only 11 percent of U.S. voters think people who want to secure the border and prevent illegal immigration are racist....”
But expertly massaged by our “News” Media that percentage can represent huge numbers.
Marco Rubio is NOTnour friend!
Again, thanks for keeping us up to date on all things dealing with the latest Illegal Alien Amnesty push
Its time for Rubio and MS-8 to dump the Amnesty nonsense. As it becomes more apparent that the Boston bombing is Islamic Terrorism... continued pushing of Amnesty makes Rubio and his minions pro-terrorist...as many of their bill’s provisions aid and abett the entry of foreign terrorists

Especially if it turns out to be someone on a visa. But then, I thought on 9/11 the first thing Bush would do was slam that border & visa program shut. I was so naive...I was afraid they’d detain Muslims unfairly or kick them all out!
Instead they increased immigration from terrorist states.
Yet we have so called conservatives like Rubio who are afraid to stand up against amnesty.

I'd say most democrats aren't for amnesty. That's why the gang of 8 insist it isn't amnesty. We're all getting hoodwinked on this one. One group that I've followed is Progressives for immigration reform. They have different motives than some of us, but they see illegal and mass legal immigration as a negative.
[snip]PFIR concurs with the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform (commonly called the Jordan Commission, after its chairman, Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, pictured below). In its 1997 report, it stated: The Commission decries hostility and discrimination against immigrants as antithetical to the traditions and interests of the country. At the same time, we disagree with those who would label efforts to control immigration as being inherently anti-immigrant. Rather, it is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interests.
Thank you AuntB. I don’t think I am alone when I say I have leftist kooks in the family. I think we all do. And when it comes to attacking me for my conservative ideology they generally don’t hold back. ALL of them lack the knowledge needed to refute anything I say so, on occasion, they gang up on me then they attack with one hoping the other has the answers they know they lack. But that really is rare; they generally stick to talking about me behind my back revealing their cowardice. It is what it is.
lol! I would love to but I know where it would end. Heck, I politely asked my sister why she supported Barack Obama back in 2008 and when she couldn't give me even one reason why she took it as an affront on her intelligence and has since disowned me.
The liberal mind is a strange thing.
I understand. I have family and former ‘friends’ who ran out on me decades ago over property rights. They’ll never ‘get it’.
No, they will never get it; they are unteachable.
They do get very angry when they can’t support their positions. For them it’s all about what they feel. You’re mean when you ask for facts or reasons.
Yes, I was mean. I found out later that my sister sent an email to everyone in the family but me informing them that she “didn’t want to hear my name again until she heard I was dead”. Wow...talk about overreacting. From what I heard she didn’t get the support she had hoped for with many telling her that all I did was ask her a question. That didn’t matter to her, she stuck to her position and does to this day so we have not spoken since. I swear, all I did was ask her why she was going to vote for Barack Obama. Apparently, that was mean.
