Karl Rove, 100+ GOP Donors Send
Letter to Republicans Urging
Immigration Reform

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 7/30/2013 1:58:42 PM

Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.

Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of FORMER GOP donors did not send letters.

Hmm, if Rove or those donors would get my kids better jobs in the upper 6 figure range we might talk about it but they are competing in the great genba of the world right here in the US and there are too many illegals for comfort.

If these donors need those illegals let´s buy a chunk of Canada from some First Nation´s types and send them all there to create their new nation.

We are oversubscribed with them at the moment.

Those 100+ GOP donors love that cheap labor - for which, the rest of us ending up paying in form of higher unemployment taxes, the costs of providing free education and healthcare, more urban congestion, etc.

But this is nothing new: business and real estate interests have been for essentially open borders since the founding of the Republic. Clue to Rove and the mighty 100+: open borders and the modern welfare state do not mix. Get rid of the welfare aspect and then maybe we can agree on something.

Hey karl, you did your best to lose the 2006, 2008, 2010 & 2012 elections for the Republican Party. Why don´t you just admit you like to have democRATS in the white house and in the majority of the senate and the House? While you´re at it admit you are a closet marxist.

In the real world, people hire architects that design beautiful, functional buildings that stand the test of time. The architect seems only to create tired old buildings that only win when the competitive building falls down first. It seems to me the last Rove win was when Kerry self destructed as a warrior, put out some truly silly looking pictures, and was for things before he was against them.

They want the cheap labor. Americans lose jobs. Bigger problem is most will go right on welfare. Many are felons, murderers, rapists, drag mules, terrorists, etc, and will require more police, more government bureaucrats, and it all is paid for with our TAX dollars, which will surely go up, while quality of life slowly becomes third world lousy.

Thank you #5. You´re right. If I owned a 1000 acre vegetable farm, I would bribe my congressmen to vote for amnesty, too; that way I can have very cheap labor, with taxpayers covering all the costs for education, health, and accident insurance: What a bargain.

I think Karl Rove would be a good VP running mate for Chris Christy as a democrat when both run for the 2016 presidential election.

Hey, Do you know who else spelled Karl with a "K" instead of a C, Karl Marx?

It´s not about cheap labor, but some labor that will do a lot of jobs many Americans won´t do anymore it seems.

How many are looking to work in the meat packing plants?
How many are cutting lawns, cleaning dishes, bussing tables?

And if you fix the legal status, and ensure there´s a better functioning legal immigration we won´t need this again.

Considering there is 10-13 year wait, at the back of the line, it´s NOT amnesty.

Any Republican is better than any Democrat, and you need a majority to do anything.

Sitting on your hands only helps Democrats by not needing as many votes to win. Democrats realize this, which is why they help moderate and conservative Democrat candidates in districts where the population trends accordingly.

Immigration reform?
Ya mean the new amnesty?

Here´s a reform school lesson for ya, Karl, and yer rich buddies...

Seal the border, using the Department of De Fence.
That´s what it´s there for.
Not to keep troops for a half century plus in Korea, and also in Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.

It´s a military matter and threat to our national security.
Shut the border... NOW!

Notice our idiot "leaders" fought huge wars in Vietnam and Korea...
and allowed the Commies to have Cuba right off our shores?
Go figger how these nuts ever get into orifice in the first place.

Oh, yeah... it´s because people like Dork Karl Rove run their campaigns... D´oh!

On the issue: let the wages moderate supply vs demand. Consider the NYC trash collectors: make pay and working conditions adequate, and Americans will do the job.

On the money:
100 x $10-Million = $1-Billion
10-Million x $100 = $1-Billion
Think about it.

you give illegals amnesty and they won´t be working in the fields. Why should they? They will look for other work that is not back breaking and for more money. And then we will still need illegals. Vicious cycle.
As for the meat packing plants, plenty of Americans worked there until the plants broke the union and brought in Mexicans and paid them substandard wages. And even though I hate unions, the meat packing plants didn´t pay outrageous salaries.

#20 - Lots of americans do the jobs you´ve listed, and more would do them if the wages were high enough. They just won´t do them for low wages and no benefits because living on the dole pays as well (or better). Econ 101 (supply and demand) should tell you - to increase the supply, raise prices (wages), to increase demand, cut prices. The market will find the point of equilibrium.

I have voted Republican for 40 yrs or so, but this is the end for me. If anyone of these clowns vote for Ammnesty and/or to not to defund ObamaCare, I will not vote for them period. If they won´t stand up for American on this crucial issues, who cares if they get reelected. A Dem can´t be any worse. At least they are somewhat honest. These Republicans are selling us out for the highest dollar while lying to us pretending that they are conservatives/Republicans.

As far as the establishment Republicans are concerned it´s all about cheap labor! now illegal cheap labor is limited to where they can work, (jobs that Americans are not eager to jump at) but if this amnesty and massive expansion of immigration passes, there will be no limits on where the cheap foreign labor can work, as the proposal would legalize or allow into the country in the next ten years an estimated 46 million foreign workers and their family members, who would have complete access to the legal US job market.

If that happens and the legal US job market is flooded with a glut of foreign workers will to work much cheaper then American workers can afford to do and still maintain their customary US standard of living it is bound to adversely affect the wages, job related benefits, and working conditions of a large number of American workers across the board in every industry that could hire those foreign workers.

By facilitating that, the Republicans will be committing long-term political suicide as once all the "unintended consequences" pop up effecting American workers who can vote, you can bet that the Democrats will cast the blame big time upon the Republicans.

The liberal Democrats are pushing hard for a special path to citizenship provision that will be designed to give US citizenship to those foreign born people, as they recognize that most will be poor, generally uneducated and will qualify as a minority group as soon as they are legalized. Such immigrants have always voted for the Democrats by about an 85 percentile in the past. So there is a great potential for the liberal Democrats to end up with ten million or more new voters and a huge electoral advantage in the future.

The establishment country clubber blue bloods are foreign to the base of regular hard working Americans.

They are fighting hard to keep the base from retaking the party and are about to see themselves with no voters in their corner.

The economy and pocket book issues are what everyday people are concerned about--not losing their job prospects to cheap labor.

The hard earned dollars are becoming worth less due to the RINOS rolling over and approving all these taxes the Dems float.

No more!

Three years before Matt Drudge changed the world and how news would be consumed, President Bill Clinton´s White House feared that the Internet was allowing average citizens, especially conservatives, to bypass legacy gatekeepers and access information that had previously been denied to them by the mainstream press.

The recent standoff at the Bundy ranch in Nevada has taught us many lessons, but the most important one was missed. We learned that the government will do anything to private citizens in order to grab land and private property either under the guise of protecting an “endangered” desert tortoise that is actually overpopulated, or getting rid of “feral” and destructive “trespassing cattle” grazing the land for generations, cattle that are in the way of developing a $5 billion Chinese solar panel plant (ENN), and the exploitation of rare earth elements in the larger adjacent area.

Scientists believe that over the last two billion years or so, there have been as many as seventeen times that Earth has experienced an Ice Age. They suspect an Ice Age when they see shifts in geological formations that are so severe that the only explanation appears to be glaciers forming and moving large quantities of land from one part of the continent to another part. Each Ice Age is estimated to have lasted for at least 100,000 years, with some lasting millions of years. Each was eventually followed by a period of gradual warming, resulting in the glaciers melting and

One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory. The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed. Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American

A bombshell revelation has brought the IRS scandal to a new level. Judicial Watch has released internal IRS communications revealing that former Tax Exempt Organizations director Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding whether it was possible to criminally prosecute tax-exempt groups she believed had “lied” about their political activity. Judicial Watch obtained the documents by successfully filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS in October 2013, following the agency’s stonewall of four FOIA requests dating back to the previous May.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll.

"I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
