Nothing but demographic gain for Dems... 11 million new voters for them, and what, exactly for Repubs?
We need to have some t-shirts made for the GOP. I voted for immigration reform and all I got was this t-shirt..they got 11 Million new Rat voters.
Truly,, this is the end of our Republic.
Eleven million is just the start. Thanks to extended family chain migration, those millions will sponsor and import many millions more. It’s insanity for the GOP, plain and simple
If the GOP is determined to surrender to the idea that illegals must be given a path to citizenship, then why not at least try and fight to get some conservative immigration reform included as part of the deal?
Why not try to abolish the absurd Diversity Lottery Visas? This stands with David Souter as Bush I’s biggest mistake, but he probably doesn’t see it that way since the Bushies are all worthless on immigration. In addition to directly adding 50,000 legal immigrants per year, this absurd program sets off new channels for chain migration from the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Which is another way of saying that it sets off new chanels of future Democrat immigration.
Why not try to limit family-based immigration to spouses and minor dependent children, thus stopping unending chains?
Why not restrict Refugee settlements and/or at least make settlements get the approval of elected representatives that represent the areas the refugees are to be deposited on. That way you’d have no hypocrites like former Senator Brownback of Kansas who was all gung ho about refugees...so long as they weren’t settled in Kansas that is.
Why not acknoledge the ever growing collision between immigration policy and affirmative action, and try to end racial preferences in all federal programs?
I mean, why not at least try?
I'd say it is unbelievable, but it is totally believable that Republicans in Congress will compromise American interests in a NY minute.

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.
