Ever hear of FWD.US?
FWD.US was created by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. He has joined with "key leaders in the tech community to promote policies to keep the United States and its citizens competitive in a global economyincluding comprehensive immigration reform and education reform." (http://www.fwd.us/about_us)
Their list of supporters is a who's who of tech companies. (http://www.fwd.us/our_supporters)
Their team in Washington DC:
FWD.US has two subsidiary organizations, Americans for a Conservative Direction, and Council for American Job Growth. (http://www.nonprofitquarterly.org/policysocial-context/22211-has-zuckerberg-gone-conservative.html)
Americans for a Conservative Direction board members are:
In May FWD.us began running ads the immigration bill pushed by the so-called Senate Gang of 8. Politico reports that Americans for a Conservative Direction will spend over $1 million to push the ad in states including Texas, Florida, Iowa, and Kentucky. (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/05/07/Republican-group-Facebook-immigration-bill)
Another group running ads is the American Action Network. The American Action Network was founded by Fred Malek, National Finance Committee co-chair of John McCains 2008 presidential campaign. AAN created the American Action Forum and the Hispanic Leadership Network. These groups share office space with the Karl Rove affiliated Crossroads GPS/American Crossroads.
These groups have overlapping leadership and membership.

Texas Rep Francisco Canseco has a hidden relation to the House Gang of Eight, membership in the Hispanic Leadership Network.
The Hispanic Leadership Network developed the "Earned legal status", and "undocumented immigrant" talking points.
Sponsors of lobbying push are:
Immigration from one country, Mexico, is 2.5 times that of many countries combined.
I've taken the figures from the above table at cis.org and graphed them.
Note the sharp increase in immigration from Mexico and how that differs from all other regions' increase. Note also the sharp decline in immigration from Europe while all other regions have increased.
Roughly 63% of illegals are Mexican.
As of March 2010, 11.2 million unauthorized immigrants were living in the United StatesOur immigration policy must serve our needs, our ability to absorb, and immigrants' ability to assimilate. Creating large sub-societies serves no good purpose.

Our security can not be conditioned upon the demands of unassimilated immigrants or illegally present foreigners.

Heres more from the traitor father:
The picture generally given of the relative position of the three parties (ed: socialism, conservatism, classical liberalism) does more to obscure than to elucidate their true relations. They are usually represented as different positions on a line, with the socialists on the left, the conservatives on the right, and the liberals somewhere in the middle. Nothing could be more misleading. If we want a diagram, it would be more appropriate to arrange them in a triangle with the conservatives occupying one corner, with the socialists pulling toward the second and the liberals toward the third. But, as the socialists have for a long time been able to pull harder, the conservatives have tended to follow the socialist rather than the liberal direction and have adopted at appropriate intervals of time those ideas made respectable by radical propaganda. It has been regularly the conservatives who have compromised with socialism and stolen its thunder.The entire article at the link is food for thought. We need a party of liberty.
[Conservatism] by its very nature it cannot offer an alternative to the direction in which we are moving. It may succeed by its resistance to current tendencies in slowing down undesirable developments, but, since it does not indicate another direction, it cannot prevent their continuance. It has, for this reason, invariably been the fate of conservatism to be dragged along a path not of its own choosing. The tug of war between conservatives and progressives can only affect the speed, not the direction, of contemporary developments.
