Amnesty: It's About Power and Control
Why? Because they care? Yeah, right. It’s because illegal immigrants are a vast untapped Democrat constituency group, and whoever captures and controls them gets a seat at the big table.
These rabid community organizers think that if we grant amnesty to 11 million Hispanics (nevermind that it's actually closer to 20 million, and that an amnesty will grant citizenship to not just Hispanics, but also to unassimilable Middle Easterners and South Asians who have nothing whatsoever in common with us) that they will be the power brokers and the benefactors, milking the government cash cow while herding their new and ignorant charges into the Democratic corral. They want the power and clout that other minority organizations wield; a lighter shade of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
I would like to think it will backfire on them. People don’t leave their family and their homelands, risking it all for a better life, just to be treated like cattle. But the government social services pushers have already stampeded many into Uncle Sam’s dry gulch, corralled and branded them.
The only hope is that once we legalize these illegal immigrants, they will assimilate into welcoming local communities and churches and go their own way. Hopefully they will not be a homogenous group, just as US citizens of Hispanic background are not.
But let’s face it. Even if the GOP gets in front of the amnesty parade, they will get no credit and no Hispanic votes out of it. But that shouldn't be the goal anyway. The exploitation of illegal immigrants is a government-sponsored human rights violation and a humanitarian stain on us all. We need to clean it up.
