Embracing the false notion perpetuated by the open-borders lobby that the GOP will continue to lose elections until it pushes amnesty, the Republican National Committee (RNC) told its members they must support “comprehensive immigration reform.”
The call to support an amnesty agenda appeared in a report entitled the “Growth and Opportunity Project”, commissioned by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus in response to the Party’s failure to win the White House or Senate in 2012. If Republicans fail to “embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform,” the report warns, “our Party’s appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only.” The RNC also claims amnesty will help grow the economy. “We also believe that comprehensive immigration reform is consistent with Republican economic policies that promote job growth and opportunity for all.”
The report neglected to mention the number of Americans who are opposed to granting amnesty and will find GOP support for such as only another reason not to vote Republican.
Granting amnesty to 11-12 million illegal (criminal) aliens will do nothing but increase job competition for the 22 million unemployed or underemployed Americans, as well as increase the number of individuals dropped into public assistance and Medicaid through ObamaCare, that will have to supported by American taxpayers.
In issuing the report, the RNC appears to be taking its marching orders on immigration policy from President Obama. In a closed-door meeting with Republican lawmakers at the White House last Wednesday, President Obama told them they would benefit more from passing amnesty legislation than the Democrats. Only five days later, the RNC appears to agree, calling on its members to support “comprehensive” immigration reform.
