In usual form, Ann Coulter has come out swinging against House Republicans’ plan to advance amnesty. She claims to have been slipped a report on how immigration is changing the United States and she certainly makes her opinions on the situation known in her latest writing on the matter.
Coulter explains that the report “overwhelmingly demonstrates that merely continuing our current immigration policies spells doom for the Republican Party.” She explains, “Immigrants — all immigrants — have always been the bulwark of the Democratic Party. For one thing, recent arrivals tend to be poor and in need of government assistance. Also, they’re coming from societies that are far more left-wing than our own. History shows that, rather than fleeing those policies, they bring their cultures with them. (Look at what New Yorkers did to Vermont.)”
She’s right. Most people seem to move elsewhere for economic, not political reasons. In addition to Vermont, check out what has happened to Colorado, Florida and Virginia, which have all moved left presumably due to migration from other states. Transplants never seem to realize the policies they voted for back home were a big reason they decided to leave in the first place since liberal agendas usually result in a higher cost of living and less freedom.
Coulter continues, “At the current accelerated rate of immigration — 1.1 million new immigrants every year — Republicans will be a fringe party in about a decade.” She justifies this statement by explaining that, in poll after poll, immigrants reveal Democratic leanings such as believing international law trumps the U.S. Constitution as well as support for gun control and ObamaCare.
Commenting on House Republicans’ odd support for relaxed immigration laws, the hard-hitting conservative ponders “…why on Earth are they bringing in people sworn to their political destruction?” She then answers her own question, explaining that liberal immigration laws are great for ethnic lobbyists, politicians and the wealthy. She also states, “And it’s fantastic for the Democrats, who are well on their way to a permanent majority, so they can completely destroy the last remnants of what was once known as ‘the land of the free’.”
Maybe House Speaker John Boehner (R – Ohio) and his colleagues know they’ll be long gone by the time that happens so they’re willing to sell out their constituents for their own gain. But then again, that’s what politicians do.
It’s up to Republican voters to demand better from their Representatives or kick them out in the mid-term elections. Otherwise, their ideals may go the way of the dinosaur in national politics.
