Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

BIG GOVERNMENT REPUBLICANS

Rate this Entry

Do you consider yourself a good conservative Republican? Do you think you're pro-business? Are you for smaller government, lower taxes and less federal spending? Then you have no business supporting the anti-immigration agenda being pushed by the big government xenophobes who think employers should be cops, DHS should get the opportunity to approve every employee you hire and government should be throwing up tariffs restricting trade in services. There is nothing conservative about being anti-immigration, as this Scott Henson blog post points out. For those who think they're conservative because they're just about law and order, are you lobbying to change the laws to allowing employers to legally bring in needed workers (and I'm not talking about legalizing workers in the country illegally - just future workers)? If not, you're not about law and order. You're just anti-immigrant.

    Ultra-right wing, religious right and the neocons they may all be the same people are controlling that party and will lose the elections for them everytime. I am not a republican nor I sympatise with them but the abouve article rings true.

    I believe you're leaving out a key modifying word from the phrase "Anti-Immigration". You should refine the phrase to read "Anti-ILLEGAL-Immigration". I am adamantly opposed to our borders being violated by people who....ostensibly...are sneaking into our country to work at jobs no American would perform.

    Those people are attaining services they neither pay for, nor are legally entitled to. Whatever work they do, many Americans would gladly labor at in this current economic crunch.

    What the illegal aliens REALLY do is V-O-T-E en masse for democratic candidates who pander to them with promises of citizenship, welfare, medical care, and education expenses. It is no longer desirable to support these people, as their presence has created a net drain on our tax system.

    Once and for all, they are NOT LEGAL ALIENS. THE issue has nothing whatsoever to do with "Xenophobes". The tax payers of California voted overwhelmingly to deny illegal aliens many of the tax-supported services they feel they are entitled to. I'd like to see you go down to Mexico and try the same thing on their workers.

    Were it true that the Immigration Reform Caucus Republicans only opposed illegal immigration immigration, I would have said that. But they oppose ALL immigration and have opposed immigration bills that deal with legal immigration as well as illegal immigration. They oppose family immigration and have invented terms like "chain migration" to justify that opposition. They suddenly are concerned with protecting jobs for Americans as they have opposed work visa extensions. It's just a myth that they're only opposed to illegal immigration. Check their voting records.
