    It should come as no surprise that their former base is increasingly abandoning the Republicans, as the Republicans certainly abandoned their conservative base by becoming weenie, watered down liberals.

    Nobody except illegals and Democrat politicians want amnesty. The working lower and middle classes are struggling enough under Barry’s horrible economy. We don’t need 12 million more unskilled, poor laborers taking even more jobs and pushing American wages even lower.
    Cantor should’ve known this before becoming a pseudo-Democrat!

    Always amusing to watch the right wing fight itself.

    If you haven’t noticed, you already have 12 million immigrants. It is unlikely there will be mass deportations anytime soon. The republicans hire most of the cheap labor on farms and other low paying jobs. All the lack of an immigration bill does is keep wages down,

    Ted…..Ted…..Ted……by the looks of your photo, you should be old enough to remember when we were a nation of law. What drives wages down is the over abundance of low skilled, uneducated workers. Stop the flow of ILLEGAL immigrants and all of that will level out. Our welfare costs will go down as will crime.

    Oh…I almost forgot yo mention, Ted, we already have immigration laws. We now need a president who will enforce the laws.

    The conservative argument against amnesty is more about votes than jobs and wages.

    @Gypsy8

    And so is the liberal argument for amnesty.

    “The conservative argument against amnesty is more about votes than jobs and wages.”

    And the liberal argument is the same perhaps?

    Tax Man…. Tax Man……. bu the looks of your photo…

    What happens in your scenario is that jobs just get sent overseas, where even skilled labor is payed much less.

    “What drives wages down is the over abundance of low skilled, uneducated workers. Stop the flow of ILLEGAL immigrants and all of that will level out. Our welfare costs will go down as will crime.”

    Is that ‘trickle down’ immigration?

    Hmmm, does the STATE of Virginia have any laws prohibiting the hiring of illegals? How about the STATE of Arizona? Alabama? Texas?
    -
    Do you really want the Federal Gummint sweeping in to enforce state laws?
    -
    BTW, Colorado did that several years ago (before Obama) and they did not like the result and called it off.

    Legalising the immigrants who are already here would give a huge boost to the economy. So says the CBO and labor economists. I notice that the Republicans (as with health care) have no proposed solutions at all, except maybe spending billions of deficit dollars trying to double-dog enforce an already double-dog enforced border. Besides, Mr. Brat is not just opposed to illegal immigrants, he’s opposed to LEGAL immigrants. Someone needs to ask him where Viriginia farmers will get their immigrant labor.

    .
    Any plans to punish businesses that are hiring them? I mean, those jobs don’t just appear out of nowhere.

    “Sadly, in our political system the races are for national points, when the Representatives and Congressmen are supposed to support their constituents. Not what the party wants.”

    Ha.

    Ha ha.

    The ONLY thing that matters is what the party wants, regardless of party. It’s power, and that’s all it is. Representing the people?

    Ha.

    Ha ha.

    If they represented the people, there would be no American troops sent to the middle east, whose only mission is to try to stay alive.. Wall Street bankers would be in jail. People who lost their homes as a result of Wall Street shenanigans would have at least a simpler path to regain housing. Education would cost less and provide more. There would be an affordable, fair, and vital health care system. We’d have cleaner air and water, and we wouldn’t have interstates closed for months because of collapsing infrastructure. And we wouldn’t have so many people so very willing to shoot each other.
