Pro-amnety LIBRE Initiative got $3 million from Koch-led Freedom Partners - 09/12/13
The LIBRE Initiative is a group that runs putatively free market, pro-GOP outreach campaigns to Hispanics . They're also in favor of comprehensive immigration reform, aka amnesty.
Crazy Rand Paul fully supports amnesty, misleading, Hispandering, and reading poetry to do it - 03/19/13
Earlier today, Kentucky senator Rand Paul gave a pro-amnesty speech at the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce that in some ways is even more shocking and more crazy than the pro-amnesty speeches George W Bush gave. In addition to being borderline nuts, Paul misleads and uses a string of pro-amnesty talking points just like his dad.
Amnesty supporter Meg Whitman misleads about immigration - 03/30/10
California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman offers a guest editorial entitled "immigration reform, with respect" (link). Here are some of the ways she's trying to mislead voters. She says: California has the most to gain from sensible immigration reform, and the most to lose from the failed status quo... While I am a strong proponent of legal immigration, I am 100% opposed to granting amnesty to immigrants who entered the country illegally. Whitman has already made it clear that she does in fact support amnesty, she just doesn't call it amnesty. In the quote at the last link she supports a...
"Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles": pro-amnesty, pro-guest worker fantasy from Robert George - 02/22/10
Robert George of Princeton University, former George W Bush official Alfonso Aguilar, and Alejandro Chafuen (see this) are the founders of the "Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles" (latino-partnership.org), an outgrowth of George's American Principles Project. See this for a recent WSJ article involving their efforts to promote comprehensive immigration reform, aka amnesty. They say that their group "promotes conservative values and ideals within the Latino community and works to integrate Latinos into fuller and more active participation and leadership in the conservative movement...
Arizona GOP launches Hispanic site; why are they helping the Democrats? - 01/07/10
The Arizona Republican Party launched a Hispanic website earlier this week; announcement at azgop.org/news.asp?artid=156, the site itself at azhispanics.ning.com. As can be seen on the attached image, neither the site nor their other related social media efforts seem to be doing that well. But, at least it's good to know that John McCain has one friend. Their chairman Randy Pullen - someone who seemed somewhat OK in the past - says: "Too often Hispanics in Arizona have felt left out of our political system... This website seeks to engage those who may be looking for a new way to get involved...
Newt Gingrich launches bilingual The Americano site, outreaches with far-left concepts - 09/22/09
Newt Gingrich has launched a new Spanish-English bilingual website called "The Americano" (theamericano.com). His motivation isn't known; he might be trying to make money, or he might be trying to help himself and the GOP outreach to Hispanics, or both. Whatever the motivation, he's not doing a good turn for the U.S. and he's not working against how the Democrats are able to gain and maintain power.
McCain lashes out over leading on immigration "reform" and not getting "Hispanic vote"; not a moment of clarity - 04/03/09
All that pandering in vain takes a toll, and John McCain can't keep things bottled up for long. From this: John McCain sounds angry and frustrated that, despite the risks he took in pushing immigration reform, Hispanic voters flocked to Democrat Barack Obama in last year's presidential contest. McCain's raw emotions burst forth recently as he heatedly told Hispanic business leaders that they should now look to Obama, not him, to take the lead on immigration. What follows is he said, she said hearsay. Whatever he said and however he said it, don't worry: the GOP will be back to pandering in no...
Bush smears illegal immigration opponents (12/18/2008 edition) - 12/20/08
On December 18, beloved and can't-leave-too-soon president George W Bush spoke at the American Enterprise Institute convocation and said  the following (via this): ...And I'm a little concerned about the tone of the immigration debate, labeling our party as "anti"-people. It's one thing to say they want the border enforced, and I understand that. But if a group of people think that a political party is against them, it doesn't matter what else you stand for. And the tone, in my judgment, at times got to be "anti." At one point in our history we had too many Jewish people and too many...
Dick Morris: "Republicans should back immigration compromise" - 05/23/07
In case you were wondering why I erupted into peals of laughter moments ago, your answer is here. Of course, then I wondered, "Is he still working for the Democrats, or Mexico?" The Republican Party would be self-destructive (not for the first time, either) if they did not let the immigration compromise negotiated by Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) and Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) pass and become law. The hopes of the entire Latino community are pinned to immigration reform and, if the GOP is seen as blocking it, the consequences for the indefinite future will be horrific. The Republican Party will...
Darryl Fears: the Democratic line on immigration - 11/20/06
Darryl Fears of the Washington Post offers "Republicans Lost Ground With Latinos In Midterms". As might be expected, it's so full of misleading statements, superficial analysis, hidden agendas, and hidden assumptions that a full treatment would be novel-length: ...Latinos [gave] the GOP only 30 percent of their vote as strident House immigration legislation inspired by Republicans and tough-talking campaign ads by conservative candidates roiled the community. It was a 10-point drop from the lowest estimated Latino vote percentage two years ago, and a 14-point drop from the highest... Of...
Myth Debunked: Latin Conservative Tidal Wave Is Not Coming - 07/24/06
Heather MacDonald offers this, which is sure to get the usual suspects and various Lysenkoists up in arms: The myth of the redemptive Hispanic is finally cracking. For years, conservative open-borders advocates have touted Hispanic "family values" as a prime reason to increase immigration. Hispanic immigrants, these conservatives say, will save America from itself. At a time when Anglo and black families are disintegrating, when society is becoming increasingly atomized and alienated, Hispanics will bring the traditional values that the country so desperately needs. In a classic iteration of...
