Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Martinez Left Out One Subject

Rate this Entry

I have to say that it was hard not to like Susana Martinez's speech last night. She's charming, smart and its refreshing to hear a voice like hers in the WASPy GOP. The only other speech last night that probably was in the same league was Condoleeza Rice's.

But that subject that reportedly kept Romney from selecting Susana for the veep spot also was left out of the speech last night - she's pro-immigration and no doubt would embarrass Romney because she is the type of person who wouldn't tow the line and sign off on the nonsense espoused by the Romney/Kobach camp or the Republican Party platform. She didn't say a word about immigration policy last night most likely because every speech at the RNC has been vetted by the Romney camp.

One moment caught on television last night summed up the problem for the GOP. When Martinez uttered the phrase "En America, todo es posible" a female delegate on camera changed her smile to a scowl.

    Have you noticed that most Hispanics in the GOP can pass for WASPy white....

    Heck, even the Indians in GOP can pass for white...

    Here is a research hypothesis for political scientists, immigration experts as well as sociologists...

    "the lighter the skin of a minority, rounder the eyes, the pointier the nose, more likey they are in the GOP" eventhough many of them may be pro-immigration!

    Some of these folks even call themselves white if not WASPy...

    But then if you make the bed with bigots you lie on it...

    Why giving coverage to a reality show called "US Presidential Elections"? Both fraudulent candidates, Obama and Romney represent the same interests and are financed by the same corporations (and banks as well), thus nothing new to report and nothing will change.

    Better put attention to the coming months due to the impending collapse of the global financial system, starting with the demise of the euro and the ongoing civil war in Syria, which is indeed the prelude to WW3 (thermonuclear war). As soon as Israel gets directly involved in this conflict either attacking Syria, Lebanon or Iran, it will lead to a regional war.

    Consider the following facts:
    - The Russian Federation would use nuclear weapons in response to any imminent threat to its national security, Chief of the Russian General Staff Gen. Nikolai Makarov (02/15/2012)
    - Military intervention in the sovereign affairs of other states may lead to outright war, including nuclear war, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev (05/17/2012)
    - The Russian Navy successfully tested a Bulava SLBM, fired from a nuclear submarine deployed in the Mediterranean Sea. IDF and NATO early warning systems were incapable of detecting -and destroying- this ballistic missile while flying over Israeli, Syrian, Lebanese and Turkish airspace (06/07/2012)
    - Last month a Russian Akula-class nuclear sub, loaded with cruise missiles, has been patrolling near the US strategic nuclear submarine base at Kings Bay, Georgia, the home base for eight of America's nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines

    Do you think unlawful present immigrants in the United States would love the idea of getting a green card while serving in the US armed forces under such circumstances (WW3)?

    Tobias, what other conspiracy theories do you have? This one just does not do it for my imagination. At least, tell us, who Russia wants to have a war WITH?

    Take first some classes of geopolitics, focusing on topics dealing with the encirclement of Russia and China by the US and NATO, if you want to improve your educational level (and intellect as well).

    This is a good starting point:
