‘Immigration Reform’ Is Just Another Term For ‘Republican Suicide’

Posted by KingShamus on January 29, 2013

Playing the part of Doctor Kervorkian will be Senator John McCain.

John McCain:  Well, look, I’ll give you a little straight talk. Look at the last election. Look at the last election. We are losing dramatically the Hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we’ve got to understand that. Second of all, we can’t go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows in an illegal status. We cannot forever have children who were brought here by their parents when they were small children to live in the shadows, as well. So I think the time is right.

I stole this from The Other McCain.  Why not clicky that linky and read the rest of his post?  Come back when your finished.

Now please forgive me a moment, but I’m going to run a quick multiple choice quiz.  It’s only one question, so don’t sweat too hard.  Are you ready?   Okee-dokee, here it is.

What is the purpose of immigration?

A:  To help white guilt liberals feel good about themselves.

B:  To create a cheap labor source for crony socialist corporations.

C:  To give diversity trainers a reason to exist.

D:  To make the United States stronger.

If you answered “D”, you win a free one year subscription to Blog De KingShamus and an E-High Five!

(Please note–there is no such thing as an E-High Five.  Sorry Tennessee…and everywhere else.)

The only reason why you bring immigrants into the country is to make it better.   Any immigration policy that doesn’t make America a more powerful nation, in observable quantifiable ways, is idiocy soaked in stupidity slathered in mendacity wrapped in a zesty bullshit crust.  Also, score it a total loss if the purveyors of any new policy employ multi-culti pablum like ‘Diversity Is Strength’, ‘Live in the shadows’ or ‘Nation of Immigrants’ to justify the program.

For those who think the GOP congress will get a pat on the back from Hispanic voters for passing an some sort of amnesty immigration reform, I have one simple phrase:  “1965 Civil Rights Act”.  More Republicans voted for it than Democrats.  Senate Democrats fillibustered the thing  as much as they possibly could.  Of course, who got the credit?  Part-time Democrat President and full-time mega bigot Lyndon Johnson, naturally.

So here’s how it’s going to go down:

Republicans desperately want to be BFFs with Latinos, so they lead the charge to get an amnesty bill passed.  It’ll be filled with a lot of tough talk about enforcement and triggers and other folderol that will be nothing more than rhetorical fig leaves meant to fool conservatives.  The amnesty that dare not speak it’s name will blow through both chambers of Congress with massive bipartisan support.  Obama will have an enormous signing ceremony, surrounded by his usual cadre of human props.  Steve Kroft will lead the MSM cheerleaders praising the Democrats for finally solving this decades-long problem.

Meanwhile, Republicans will quickly get swept aside in the media narrative of ‘Barack–Benevolent Guardian of Hispanic Hopes And Dreams’.  Marco Rubio will get emo after he does all the work to get this monstrosity passed and none of the glory.  When Telemundo dutifully points out that many GOPers didn’t vote for shamnesty, the RNC will be shocked to find Latinos still think the Party of Lincoln is populated by racists.

Here’s the real kick in the teeth.  If you want a picture of the future, imagine eleven million formerly illegal immigrants voting Democrat—forever.  Republican permanent minority party status: ACHIEVED!

Why do we let immigrants into America?

Posted by KingShamus on July 3, 2010

On the eve of America’s birthday, Robert Stacy McCain cuts to the chase.

Finish this sentence: The purpose of U.S. immigration law is . . .

C’mon, take a wild guess.

The purpose of U.S. immigration law is to protect the interests of the United States and its citizens.

Give yourself a gold star with an oak leaf cluster if you got it right.  We go with the honor system around here, so I’m taking ya’all at your word on this one.

Ponder this:  As the 1800′s progressed, America needed more  and more workers to man the expanding industrial needs of the nation.  These workers didn’t have to be particularly well-educated.  They just needed to be able to figure out how to operate machinery and be physically durable. 

In the 21st century, have things changed so little in the United States that the same type of labor force that we took in during the 19th century-uneducated, largely unskilled, mass numbers-needs to be imported today?  Countless things about American businesses, the workforce and the economy have changed since 1850.  Yet too many of us operate in that hopey changey hopeyness that we can just keep letting everyone in…because it’s the nice thing to do. 

It seems like the open-door loosey-goosey immigration pushers always whine when one shoeless skill-free jackanapes from the education deficient hinterland of some backwater foreign shit-hole doesn’t get a hummer and a hand-out immediately upon crossing the US border.  That mentality is going to get us all royally fucked.

Look, I don’t blame people for wanting to come to America.  It’s a great place to live and work and raise a family.  The US offers wonderful opportunities for people who wish to work hard and be successful.  The problem in the USA circa 2010 is that it doesn’t need nearly as many unskilled laborers as we did 100-150 years ago.  We make enough of them all on our own without importing more from other nations.

Immigration law as it is properly understood would actively discourage bazillions of uneducated workers from entering this country and would enforce tough rules without hesitation.  At the same time, educated men and women from all over the world would be encouraged by favorable laws and an optimal climate to relocate, settle and naturalize themselves in America.  In that way, both native-born Americans and individual ‘foreign’ workers would benefit from this new emphasis on immigration enforcement and incentivization.

Or we can keep playing along as if immigration isn’t a means to protect America, but to be nice to the foreigners.
