Any rational thinker knows that the AZ immigration mess is going to seriously damage the GOP. Contrary to the popular lies of the far right talk so demigods, a hard line approach is a sure fire loser for any candidate.
“…And the party’s long-term thinkers worry that the Arizona law is merely a quick political fix which may create a permanent rift with the fastest growing segment of the U.S. electorate.
“It’s like a virus that you get and you don’t feel like you’re unhealthy for the first few days, but after that you have a fever and you’re really sick,” says Matthew Dowd, former President George W. Bush’s chief strategist in 2004. “You can’t win a national election and you can’t win certain states without the Latino vote. And Republicans already had a problem.”
Let’s get this straight. Jan Brewer’s new law, written by John Tanton’s flunkie, Kris Kobach for white supremacist lovin’ Russell Pierce, will not allow someone who is illegally targeted by the cops and is not illegal, from having any recourse?
Ruben Navarrett, Jr. brought up a salient point of Jan Brewer’s idiot law.
“…As such, the law doesn’t just allow for the possibility of racial and ethnic profiling of anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant (read: Latinos). It all but requires this sort of thing to happen. In fact, it includes a provision by which concerned citizens can sue law enforcement agencies that they believe to be non-compliant.
They are at it again.
The ugly specter of immigration reform is rearing it’s nasty head.
I have several objections to hard-core immigration reform.
- It ignores the actual problem along the border of drug running
- It will doom the GOP to a minority party
- It is short sighted
- It is potentially dangerous to our national interests
