Looking at the political motivation of the groups pushing higher immigration and amnesty, it’s obvious that the Democrats promote large-scale immigration because it produces more Democratic votes. But why are some prominent Republicans pushing amnesty?

Contrary to a myth being circulated among evangelical groups, polling data do not support the notion that immigrants are social conservatives. There is no evidence that amnesty or inviting more immigration will produce Republican votes, and there is abundant evidence that it will produce more Democratic votes. The New York Times Washington bureau chief admitted that “The two fastest-growing ethnic groups – Latinos and Asian-Americans – are decidedly liberal.” Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute points out that “It is not immigration policy that creates the strong bond between Hispanics and the Democratic Party, but the core Democratic principles of a more generous safety net, strong government intervention in the economy, and progressive taxation.”

Under current law, more than one million new legal immigrants come in every year. CBO projections indicate that amnesty plus its scheduled increases in legal immigration will add an additional 4.6 million new voters by 2014. Immigration will add five million more potential voting-age citizens between 2014 and 2024. This large-scale immigration has created a greatly expanded leftist Democratic electorate. An enormous body of survey research shows that large majorities of these recent immigrants, who are mostly Hispanic and Asian, hold liberal views on most policy issues, and therefore vote Democratic two-to-one. They are not motivated by whether public officials are pro- or anti-amnesty; they are motivated by economic issues.

Most Americans believe that the United States of America is an exceptional country. The borders test proves that people are coming to America, not fleeing from America to go to other countries. People come to America because it is a remarkable oasis of freedom, prosperity, and opportunity for foreigners no matter what socio-economic rank they were assigned in their native country.

President Barack Obama has insisted on Plan B contraceptives for 14-year-old girls without prescription or parental permission, and now it turns out that the pill does not even work for big women. Europeans require that the label tell the truth about the ineffectiveness, but the USA does not.
