Flow Of Immigrants Worries GOP

By Robert Novak - June 12, 2005 - Chicago Sun-Times

President Bush's statement Wednesday to Republican congressional leaders acknowledging that he should do a better job handling immigration followed a report to him by aides that the conservative base is deeply concerned about that issue.

Republican House members returning from the Memorial Day recess last week told the White House that their constituents are most concerned about two issues: fiscal responsibility and immigration. In both parties, elite leadership does not appreciate rank-and-file worries about the flood of immigrants and
government aid to them.

It is time that Republican leadership catch up with the grassroots Republican party. We are the party of SMALL business and middle class, though the leadership does not always reflect this. Big corporations, rich lawyers and unpatriotic farmers and restaurant owners are completely committed to open borders. Though mostly democratic supporters, there are enough of these in Republican Party leadership that the 80% of the party that opposes current plans to grant amnesty have until recently been ignored and thwarted.

This is finally changing. The American taxpayer is being gouged by money transfers to illegals. The illegals come here to work cheap (and off the record) because socialist Mexico cannot provide them with a way to make a living. They also want free health care, free food, free education ..... free legal assistance to sue our citizens for every perceived wrong in a land where they do not belong. They demand that we provide them all assistance in Spanish because they refuse to learn English. And they vote illlegally.

The "reconquista" effort is a serious plan to take by voting portions of America that they believe should be part of Mexico. The significance of this is not whether it will ever happen. The significance of this is how hatred for America inspires most of these invaders. They do not come here to be a part of the American dream. They come here to take from us, everything that they can get.

It is also clear that the next 9/11 will be the result of failure to secure our borders. At some point we are almost certain to see a nuclear 9/11. It is only a matter of time.

It is ironic that the democratic party which has led the way in giving illegals all of the free services they can, is now claiming that they want to stop illegal immigration. First they cause a problem, then they complain that Republicans haven't fixed it.

Until now, many Republican leaders were out of touch with the party's base on this issue. It is time they caught up.
