CIS To Republicans: Oppose Immigration Policy Because Obama Supports It!
The anti-immigrant Center for Immigration Studies apparently knows how to motivate Republicans in Congress these days. In a document released this weekend, the group urges Republican members of Congress to oppose bipartisan immigration reform…just because President Obama supports it.
In a document called “Questions for Lawmakers on Immigration,” CIS has a special section of “Questions for Republican Politicians,” which starts off with “Why are you so interested in helping Obama achieve his No. 1 agenda item?” The group goes on to recommend that Republicans focus on Benghazi instead of “trying to help” the president and to warn that “this amnesty would create more constituents for Obamacare and Big Government.”
Q: Why are you so interested in helping Obama achieve his No. 1 agenda item? Why aren't you spending time going after Obama on Benghazi, the NSA spying, and the IRS targeting conservatives? Instead you're trying to help him!
In order to distance himself from the various scandals, President Obama needs a political win and amnesty is his top priority. If the bill becomes law, the media will be happy to allow Obama to take all credit for the bill. There is no evidence to suggest that passage of an amnesty bill will help GOP politicians at the polls.
Q: Considering that a recent Pew Hispanic Center poll found that 81 percent of Hispanic immigrants say they would rather have a bigger government with more services than a smaller government with fewer services, don't you think that this amnesty would create more constituents for Obamacare and Big Government?
A recent Pew Hispanic Center poll found that Hispanic immigrants support bigger government at a much higher rate than the national average. The poll found that Hispanic support for big government goes down after a few generations, but that it still remains higher than the national average. The report found: "The share that wants a bigger government falls to 72 percent among second-generation Hispanics and 58 percent among third-generation Hispanics. By contrast, just only 41 percent of the general U.S. public say they want a bigger government, while nearly half (48 percent) say they want a smaller government." Looking at all Hispanics in the United States (immigrants and Americans), an average of 75 percent support larger government, compared to only 41 percent of Americans nationwide.
