The National Journal came out with a story recently with regard to how the Tea Party Republican extremists will kill legal immigration reform that is being discussed at the Congressional level currently.
But perhaps the GOP Tea Party didn’t receive the memo of when Rep Steve King held an anti-immigrant rally and virtually received no love with the small attendance. Obstructionist tactics by the Tea Party people who have an agenda to kill comprehensive immigration reform have something in common with another extremist group via DreamActivist.org and The NIYA. Leaders of the DreamActivist and The NIYA are anti-Obama, anti-Democratic Party and they believe the Tea Party Republicans are not real enemies to immigration reform even though it was the Tea Party Sen. Ted Cruz who voted against the bipartisan Gang of Eight Comprehensive Immigration Bill. The Tea Party as well as the groups led by Mohammad Abdollahi have obstructionist and unreasonable views. The difference is this: Tea Party people tend to be voters while Mohammad’s misled DREAMer followers can’t really vote.
Extremist groups use fear tactics and spread misinformation, but we want to remind the National Journal and those 20-70 members Steve King claims to have in alignment with him how lonely it will be for them if they do not fix the broken immigration system. It is the responsibility of the federal government to fix immigration because immigration is protected under the Supremacy Clause of our United States Constitution.
Mexican-American Latinos are the fastest growing demographic in the nation and we have approximately 500,000 up and coming of age new voters every year.
There’s no telling when an immigration bill will come to the House floor, what it will say, or who will support it.
Only one thing’s for sure: Steve King will vote no.
And he’s not alone. … King won’t say how many members he’s got on board, except that it reached “fairly deeply” into the GOP caucus. Lobbyists say it’s somewhere between 20 and 70 members. Even at the low end of that range, it’s enough to prevent any Republican-led immigration bill from passing.
