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.

I read tripe like this and get mad.

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.

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment.

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 White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
