The Cooperative Congressional Election Study found that 69% of immigrants support Obamacare. Pew Research found that 53% of Hispanics have a negative view of capitalism, which is even higher than views of self-identified supporters of Occupy Wall Street. Even the mainstream pro-Obama media admit the significance of these poll results. The New York Times Washington bureau chief admitted that “The two fastest-growing ethnic groups – Latinos and Asian-Americans – are decidedly liberal.” Ronald Reagan signed a generous amnesty in 1986. Then, in the 1988 election, George H.W. Bush received only 30% of the Latino vote, seven percentage points less than Reagan received in 1984.
We need a pause in immigration to allow time for newcomers to assimilate, to learn our language and customs, and to adapt to our unique system of government. The bottom line is that amnesty or any version thereof is suicide for the conservative movement and the Republican Party.
