Part of an article in the National Review really drives home an important point.
Democrats are pro open border, Amnesty, and support violation of our immigration laws……………

Republicans are….well…..Against!

R Stands for “Enforcement”
Responding to Tamar Jacoby.

By Mark Krikorian

…….the mainstream positions of the two parties are pretty clear, at least on enforcement of the immigration law, and Jacoby is firmly in the Democratic mainstream. Both in the House and Senate, substantial majorities of Republicans supported an Enforcement First approach to dealing with the illegal-alien population and rejected the Amnesty First approach promoted by the Democrats (and a vocal minority of Republicans).


    House Republicans voted in December by 203 to 17 in favor of a comprehensive enforcement bill, while Democrats voted 164-36 against.In a June vote to deny Homeland Security funding to cities that prohibit cooperation with federal immigration authorities (so-called “sanctuary cities”), Republicans voted 201-14 in favor, Democrats 164-17 against.

    The tally on a vote to clarify the existing inherent authority of states and localities to enforce immigration law if they choose to do so was Republicans 215-5 in favor, Democrats 62-134 against.

    The vote on expanded border fencing displayed the same pattern: Republicans in favor 219-6, Democrats opposed 131-64.

    The story in the Senate was similar. Nearly 60 percent of Republicans voted against the big amnesty/worker importation bill that had been original conceived by Senators McCain and Kennedy, while 90 percent of Democrats voting supported it.

The Democrats may have a tiny majority, but they still will not be able to open up our country and grant Amnesty without the help of Republicans and their own conservative collegues.This is where the battle is. This is where we need to be unrelenting with our pressure.
In the battle over illegal immigration the Dems are clearly not on the side of Americans…….They are siding with another country.
Will we let them get away with it?
Democracy works because we take part …….Time to get busy!
