Immigration will kill GOP, but only if it goes along with amnesty -- By Charles Hurt, The Washington Times

A man marches with a sign during a protest in front of a building that houses federal immigration offices Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, in Atlanta.  Eight immigration activists, protesting deportations of people who are in the country illegally, were taken into custody by police after they locked arms and some of them chained themselves to the gates outside immigration offices..   (AP Photo/John Bazemore) Immigration as a top concern for American voters polls somewhere around 2 or 3 percent, according to the latest Gallup survey. That is right down there with "lack of respect for each other" and "hunger."

And remember, a good portion of that 2 or 3 percent who consider immigration their most pressing issue do so because they want the federal government to simply do its job and enforce its own immigration laws and protect the borders.

So, why is it that Republican leaders in Washington have suddenly thrust immigration into the spotlight and made it the most pressing issue in the land?

Even more alarming, why have these Republican leaders suddenly become seized with the illegal desire to make an illegal grand bargain with Democrats in Congress to grant illegal amnesty to some 12 million illegal aliens residing illegally in our country right now? (Notice a theme here?)

With the war on terrorism winding down and the "war on women" over, has the GOP launched a war on Republicans? So it would seem.

Republican leaders in Congress would have you believe that if they do not embrace amnesty for all these millions of illegal aliens, then the only (slightly) sane political party left in America will be washed away. It will be overcome by waves and waves of new Hispanic voters who shun the xenophobic and glaringly white Republican Party. The Grand Old Party will become the Extinct Old Party.

Such are the scary, noxious potions that Republican strategists, pollsters and demographers have been whipping up for years. Then they make gazillions of dollars by unveiling them to party leaders in private and scaring the living hell out of them.

They are the global warmists of the Republican Party.

And, just like with the global warmists, it all comes down to power. These people would rather maintain their grip on a shattered party than lose control of an ascendant party. And, of course, scaring the crap out of people is a very good way to make lots and lots of money. Just ask Albert Gore Jr.
