A porous American border is the only thing that keeps the Mexican economy afloat. Mexico can cut millions off their own welfare rolls by encouraging surplus population to go north and consumer demand in Mexico is increased by money that is sent by illegals back to their families south of the border. Mexico gets all the benefit and America takes the hit. If amnesty is granted, there will be another 20 million flood across the border in the next 5 years.
So Rush is helping Rubio.
“So Rush is helping Rubio.”
Without a doubt.
Rush has always been worthless in the fight to rid ourselves of the foreign nationals who have planted themselves in America in defiance of the law.
Some of the movers in the Prop 187 fight tried to get him involved as early as 1994 and he always had a lame excuse.
He wouldn’t even take calls on the subject.
It wasn’t until we melted the Senate phone lines when Bush the Useless tried to ram amnesty through that Rush got around to yelling “wait! wait! I am your leader!”
And like every pretender the thing he focuses on is “sealing the border”. The real issue is deporting those who are here. The people afraid of the D word are just wasting our time.
“Nothing but demographic gain for Dems... 11 million new voters for them, and what, exactly for Repubs?”
That “11 million” number has been trotted out for 20 years.
A Wall Street investment firm ran its own study some years back that had no political agenda, just a desire to estimate the size of the illegal alien ‘market’ in the US. That number was close to 30 million.
“I am no fan of Rubio but why single him out? He has always been in favor of immigration reform.”
No he hasn’t. When he was in Florida he scuttled attempts by Florida Republicans to address the issue.
What he has always been for is Latino exception to the law. He’s a Jeb Bush protege.
Sorry, I misread your post. I definitely agree with you.
Reading your post i was wondering where we differed. The whole issues is largely about Latino’s anyway.
