MEG WHITMAN: GOP MUST CHANGE ON IMMIGRATION

Rate this Entry

Yet another Republican who gets that the party needs to move in a new direction on immigration. And Whitman should know. To get the GOP nomination for Governor, Whitman felt the need to skew right on immigration issues and Latino voters weren't willing to ignore her statements when she tried to veer to the left for the general campaign. As long as extremists get to call the shots on immigration in the GOP nominating process, they've got a big problem.

    And the right-wingers weren't believing her, either, because she claimed to be "tough as nails" on illegal immigration and punish employers, but had employed an illegal immigrant herself...
    When that came out, the posts in the forums of the right-wing local newspaper Orange County Register were fun to read ;-)

    I thought it was Senate that could not get enough votes lasttime. What can Obama do to pass the nightmare or dream act ...

    "My view is that the immigration discussion, the rhetoric the Republican Party uses, is not helpful; it's not helpful in a state with the Latino population we have," Whitman said during a brief interview following a speech at a George W. Bush Institute conference on the economy. "We as a party are going to have to make some changes, how we think about immigration, and how we talk about immigration."

    So is it more language or substance? According to some, any policy not including legalization and lax/total non-enforcement is an affront to Latinos. As long as Mexican and other Latin American nationals are those mostly in violation of immigration law, limited immigration itself is viewed as inherently anti-Latino/Mexican. That's a rhetorical dilemma for pro-enforcement folks. The anti-enforcement movement plays that dilemma up in order to encourage rule-of-law believers to keep quiet. No matter what you say or how you say it, they will hit you with an accusation of "hate speech", presume your motivation is racial animosity, and personally attack you rather than address your policy argument. Often, that argument is preconceived as not even worthy of consideration. That's what happens when population and immigration issues are transformed into race issues.
