Skip to comments.Norquist: Immigration is good for the GOP

Americans for Tax Reform head Grover Norquist says that large-scale immigration is good for America and the Republican Party and that critics of easy immigration should get out of the way.
There are a whole bunch of people who are listening to loud voices, some of whom claim to be Republican talking about [employers] who didnt fill out the paperwork, about going after [an immigrant's] aunt, said Norquist, whose opposition to tax increases has made him popular among Republicans and a hate-figure among progressives.
Once advocates for tighter immigration are sidelined, the GOP will be able to win votes from Hispanics and other recent immigrants, he said.
Removing that threat [of deportation] from millions of Americans will make it possible to have a conversation with [immigrants] about tax policy and spending, and all the other issues we have with legal Americans.
But his critics are numerous and equally vehement.
Grover is an extremely effective lobbyist [and] the thing about Grover is that he has clients who make big money off of immigration, said Roy Beck, founder of advocacy group NumbersUSA, a non-partisan group which helped derail previous efforts to expand immigration.
Grover is going to do everything in his power to prevent America having a middle class it appears he thinks oligarchy is a better way to go. You cant have a Republican Party when you have a voting base that is impoverished and needs government assistance.
Norquist has been pushing to rewrite immigration policy for many years, and hes got his arguments down cold.

Norquist and his cabal are who destroyed prop. 187 in Calif. and weakened the 1986 amnesty bill. He's a muslim convert who cares nothing about USA sovereignty. His anti tax regurgitation is just to hook you!
THEY are NOT conservatives! STop buying their lie!
Sure, the hell with laws, just open the f’ing doors and let them all pour in. U.S.A. ...R.I.P. We’re literally watching our hastening demise.
a lawless society will good for who?
Maybe Norky would like to explain how some 50 new democrat congressmen will be good for America.
That is what we’ll get with some 30 million new “citizens”.
What kind of ‘tax reform’ does Grover endorse? Because immigrants these days serve the purpose of super-charging Big Government, and tax dollars are the fuel it burns.
Norquist is an a**hole and he is dangerous.

Immigration’s Latest Ally: Christian Right
YEP! Ralph Reed!
FROM A POST a few days ago:
Rove and Reed have been running together for a long time along with Grover Norquist, all leaders in the young republican movement together. Its such a tangled mess. Ive spent years trying to sort it out, but the one thing you always see is Rove, Reed, Norquist and often Gingrich supporting the same stuff and being in the same places. The fourth one of that cabal, Jack Abramoff, went to jail. The others should be there.

A quarter of a century ago, Abramoff and anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist were fellow Young Turks of the Reagan revolution. They organized Massachusetts college campuses in the 1980 election Abramoff while he was an undergraduate at Brandeis and Norquist at Harvard Business School to help Ronald Reagan pull an upset in the state.
They moved to Washington, maneuvered to take over the College Republicans at the time a sleepy establishment organization and transformed it into a right-wing activist group. They were joined by Ralph Reed, an ambitious Georgian whose later Christian conversion would fuel his rise to national political prominence.
“Maybe Norky would like to explain how some 50 new democrat congressmen will be good for America.”
Norky, I like that!~ lol..lot nicer than anything I ever called him. This man is exactly what is wrong with the GOP. He likes his muslim countries better than he ever liked the USA.
“Norquist is an a**hole and he is dangerous.”
Indeed he is. I spent years researching this traitor.
It’s all here:
Another fat slob white guy telling us we have to surrender to the invading hordes...
Illegals are government growth hormone.
Exactly. So what is Norquist really after?
My favorite Norquist quote:
“I started out as a right-winger, and when I retire I want to be a squishy middle-of-the-roader,” he jokes, chortling at the thought. Grover Norquist
Evidently these bastards are determined to force the patriation of 1/10 of the population of Mexico (and others) into the United States against the will of the people if it’s the last thing they do.
Norquist is one the favorite token ‘conservative’ by the MSM.
Ergo, he is NOT conservative.
Oh!!! That's GOOD!!!
BTW, Norquist is founder of the Islamic Institute.

Newts main man Grover Norquist says Ending Birthright Citizenship is a Tax
Mr. Amnesty, Grover Norquist, the guy who Newt Gingrich regards as the “most innovative, creative, courageous and entrepreneurial leader and who has truly made a difference and truly changed American history is at his illegal alien pandering again!
This week from National Journal:
Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, who is most famous at the moment for waging a political war on government spending, said on Monday that ending automatic citizenship for babies born on U.S. soil would be a tax on having babies.(Illegal alien ANCHOR BABIES!)
This is a tax on every child being born, he said during a telephone conference call hosted by the public-policy group National Foundation for American Policy. It solves no problems and instead creates all sorts of problems and costs in terms of Americans.
One of these days, ‘conservatives’ will figure out that the illegal alien/Muslim loving Norquist and his Americans for Tax Reform is just a cover to fool them into following him down the amnesty/open border path!
A reader of this article on the Stein Report says it best:
“And we should add a “Dumb” tax for liberals and Grover Norquist.”
For those who don’t recognize yet what a threat libertarianism is to conservatism/America, and the left wing influence it has on the GOP.
This is the actual, 2004 text of the Libertarian Party Platform on immigration.
COMPLETE PLATFORM TEXT
INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND CIVIL ORDER
The Issue: We welcome all refugees to our country and condemn the efforts of U.S. officials to create a new Berlin Wall which would keep them captive. We condemn the U.S. governments policy of barring those refugees from our country and preventing Americans from assisting their passage to help them escape tyranny or improve their economic prospects.
The Principle: We hold that human rights should not be denied or abridged on the basis of nationality. Undocumented non-citizens should not be denied the fundamental freedom to labor and to move about unmolested. Furthermore, immigration must not be restricted for reasons of race, religion, political creed, age or sexual preference. We oppose government welfare and resettlement payments to non-citizens just as we oppose government welfare payments to all other persons.
Solutions: We condemn massive roundups of Hispanic Americans and others by the federal government in its hunt for individuals not possessing required government documents. We strongly oppose all measures that punish employers who hire undocumented workers. Such measures repress free enterprise, harass workers, and systematically discourage employers from hiring Hispanics.
Transitional Action: We call for the elimination of all restrictions on immigration, the abolition of the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the Border Patrol, and a declaration of full amnesty for all people who have entered the country illegally.
Think about it. 30 million illegals is enough to create some 50 new congressional districts with all the costs, pork, earmarks, entitlements, and liberal votes associated with them.
“For those who dont recognize yet what a threat libertarianism is to conservatism/America, and the left wing influence it has on the GOP.”
Ah, geezeeee...ansel12, you and I went through this YEARS ago! THIS isn’t about libertarianism!
It’s a 2004 platform you show...the LP changed it’s stand, and YOU KNOW IT, because I showed it to you several times...you’re just being a troll!
THE GOP IS THE Biggest THREAT TO THE GOP!
IF we had no welfare state, I would open up the damn border myself!
You are annoying.
