What is it about Republican elected officials? They want to commit political suicide. The only problem is that they want to take the nation with them. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has come out in favor of political suicide by supporting a pathway for citizenship for illegal aliens.
What is it about Republicans and their desire to be a permanent minority?
Giving illegal aliens a pathway to citizenship is going to create a pool of at least five to ten million new Democrat voters. The rationale for supporting a pathway to citizenship is so the GOP can reach out to Hispanics and increase the number of Hispanics who vote GOP.
However, polls show President Obama and the Democrats' popularity is soaring among Hispanics and despite GOP support for Amnesty, it is the Democrats and Obama who are getting credit for it.
In my opinion, this is political suicide.
A recent survey showed a majority of American citizens favored deporting most or all of the 11 million illegal aliens. Denying illegal's amnesty and deporting some of them would be popular with one very important group. American voters.
So what is Scott Walker thinking?
He is buying into the story that America needs workers because Americans won't work or there is a shortage of skilled workers.
Illegal aliens have been displacing American workers for decades as businesses have found it much easier to pay illegal aliens lower wages. Even in the high tech sector, legal immigration is displacing American workers.
The H-1b visa program is a program that allows "skilled" foreign workers into America to do jobs where there is a shortage of American workers. Many of the critics of the H-1b visa program, including Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley have pointed out that far too often the H-1b visa program is used to bring in foreign workers who can be paid less than Americans.
When are Republicans going to realize what is going on?
The GOP is listening to the siren song of beltway Washington. Unfortunately, the influx of 10 to 20 million illegal's who will receive amnesty will not only set up a permanent Democrat majority but will also bankrupt the nation as all social programs will cost phenomenally more.
The Cloward-Piven strategy is a liberal strategy created to bring down the state by putting demands on the system that cannot possibly be satisfied.
Amnesty is the ultimate expression of Cloward-Piven and the result will be the total collapse of the United States.
