Schlafly: Obama Could Launch Another Civil War

 

 

” President Obama’s looming executive action on immigration reform represents a Fort Sumter-type moment, according to conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly.

  Fort Sumter, of course, is the sea fort in Charleston, South Carolina. It was there that the opening shots of the U.S. Civil War were fired on April 12, 1861.

  Schlafly at first considered comparing the Obama amnesty to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, but decided that Obama’s plan is much more subtle.

“ With Pearl Harbor, the American people knew what was happening,” she said.

  But Fort Sumter represented the beginning of a ruinous war, and Schlafly, like fellow conservative luminary Richard Viguerie, speculates that an executive amnesty might touch off a sort of modern-day conflagration.

  Obama plans to announce his unilateral immigration reform proposal in a televised address Thursday night. While no details are being released by the White House until then, analysts widely expect it to include work permits for up to five million people currently in the U.S. illegally.

  However, the administration may be expecting to authorize many more than those five million. Last month, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services began searching for a contractor capable of producing up to 34 million blank green cards over the next five years. “

How Mass (Legal) Immigration Dooms a Conservative Republican Party

 

 

Foreword, by Phyllis Schlafly 

” People come to America because it is a remarkable oasis of freedom, prosperity, and opportunity for foreigners no matter what socioeconomic rank they were assigned in their native country. Republicans and conservatives recognize that the principal reason for our unique abundance is our constitutional restraints on the power of government. As Thomas Jefferson said, “In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” 
  Accordingly, Republicans and conservatives believe in limited government, constitutional separation of powers,balanced budgets, and a minimum of government supervision and interference in our daily lives. Other countries have constitutions that list what the government should do for individuals, whereas the U.S. Constitution recites what government cannot do to us.
  This approach has stood the test of time: Our Constitution is the longest-lasting constitution in history. Republicans recognize this as the major factor in our economic
successes.As this report makes clear, current immigration policies are adding thousands of people every day whose views and experience are contrary to the conservative agenda of limited government. Most immigrants come from countries where the only government they knew was one that played a much larger role in the economy and society.
  By itself, the 1.1 million legal immigrants that arrive each year under the current system will create 5.1 million new potential voters by 2024 and 8.4 million by 2028. Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projections indicate that under the Senate Gang of Eight’s S.744 bill the total additional potential voters would rise to 9.7 million by 2024 and 17.9 million by 2028.
   Current immigration policies are adding thousands of people every day whose views and experience are contrary to the conservative agenda of limited government, reducing Republicans’ ability to offer an alternative to big government.
 
  The influx of these new voters will reduce or eliminate Republicans’ ability to offer an alternative to big government, increased government spending, higher taxes, and favorite liberal policies such as Obamacare and gun control. New voters will lean on our hard-pressed health care system and overcrowded public schools to demand more government spending. Amnesty advocates point to the assimilation of large numbers of immigrants in the early years of the 20th century.But that was followed by a national pause and slow down of immigration from the 1920s to the 1960s that allowed newcomers to assimilate, learn our language, and adapt to our unique system of government.
  Furthermore, most of those earlier immigrants arrived eager to become Americans. Many became almost 200percent Americans, typified by Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America” and by those who dominated Hollywood in those years. Still, it took seven decades and Ronald Reagan before descendents of many of those immigrants votedRepublican.There is nothing controversial about this report’s conclusion that a significant majority of immigrants arriving today generally agree with the Democrats’ big government
agenda. And it is for this reason that they vote two-to-one for Democrats. This report not only cites a large body of survey research showing this is the case, it also quotes numerous academics and political observers making the same point. Immigration has created a greatly expandedleftist Democratic electorate.
  The 2008 National Annenberg Election Survey found that 62 percent of immigrants prefer a single, government-run health care system. The 2010 Cooperative CongressionalElection Study found that 69 percent of immigrants support Obamacare, and the Pew Research Center found that 75 percent of Hispanic and 55 percent of Asian immigrants support bigger government. A Harris poll found that 81 percent of native-born Americans believe the schools should teach students to be proud of being American compared to only 50 percent of immigrants who had become naturalized U.S. citizens.

GOP Crafts Plan To Wreck The Country, Lose Voters

 

 

 

” As House Republicans prepare to sell out the country on immigration this week, Phyllis Schlafly has produced a stunning report on how immigration is changing the country. The report is still embargoed, but someone slipped me a copy, and it’s too important to wait.

  Leave aside the harm cheap labor being dumped on the country does to the millions of unemployed Americans. What does it mean for the Republican Party?

  Citing surveys from the Pew Research Center, the Pew Hispanic Center, Gallup, NBC News, Harris polling, the Annenberg Policy Center, Latino Decisions, the Center for Immigration Studies and the Hudson Institute, Schlafly’s report overwhelmingly demonstrates that merely continuing our current immigration policies spells doom for the Republican Party.

  Immigrants — all immigrants — have always been the bulwark of the Democratic Party. For one thing, recent arrivals tend to be poor and in need of government assistance. Also, they’re coming from societies that are far more left-wing than our own. History shows that, rather than fleeing those policies, they bring their cultures with them. (Look at what New Yorkers did to Vermont.) “

 

 

The facts speak for themselves and Coulter is not shy in presenting them …

 

 

” This is not a secret. For at least a century, there’s never been a period when a majority of immigrants weren’t Democrats.

  At the current accelerated rate of immigration — 1.1 million new immigrants every year — Republicans will be a fringe party in about a decade.

   Thanks to endless polling, we have a pretty good idea of what most immigrants believe.

  According to a Harris poll, 81 percent of native-born citizens think the schools should teach students to be proud of being American. Only 50 percent of naturalized U.S. citizens do.

  While 67 percent of native-born Americans believe our Constitution is a higher legal authority than international law, only 37 percent of naturalized citizens agree.

  No wonder they vote 2-1 for the Democrats.”
