Democrat response to the elections: we just need more voters

This past election cycle, the American people marched to the polls with a clear-cut message for their officials in Washington — stop.  Stop the rise of massive government.  Stop developing policy behind closed doors, through backroom deals.  And stop this anti-American agenda.  The results were a “shellacking” for the party in power.

Despite the clarity of voice with which the people spoke on November 2nd, the Democrats’ response indicates that they did not get the message.  Despite troubling job uncertainty, and an extension of the Bush tax cuts on the table, Democrats are pushing what would seemingly be a low-priority issue: immigration legislation.

President Obama recently met with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to discuss passage of the DREAM Act (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors).  The act, which Investor’s Business Daily describes quite simply as “an amnesty bill,” would open a path to citizenship for illegal immigrant students.  Worse, it is being viewed as a “down payment” to more widespread amnesty measures.

But why would progressives push such legislation during a lame-duck session?  Because the public is clamoring for illegal alien amnesty?  No.  Because they intend to spit in the face of the American people once again?  Yes.

Rather than responding to the midterm election results by actually listening to the message of the American people, Democrats have decided the appropriate response is to add millions of voters who will vote for them.

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin refers to the DREAM Act as “a 2.1 million future Democrat voter recruitment drive” and as just another part of the progressive plan to “redraw the political map and secure a permanent ruling majority.”  But that number could easily expand to upwards of 6 million over the next decade, according to a GOP report.

Sound a little too conspiratorial?  Not so much…

Election time saw the name Mi Familia Vota, a group that works in conjunction with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), perpetually appearing in stories of voter fraud.

Fraud and illegal immigration — what’s a few laws between Dems?

President and CEO of the Mi Familia Vota Education Fund (MFVEF), Cuc Vu, worked for nearly five years as Immigration Campaign Manager at the SEIU.  During that time, Vu worked closely with the SEIU’s newly minted international secretary-treasurer, Eliseo Medina.

Medina’s name should be familiar to Republicans.  While the media would like to portray Medina as a mild-mannered immigration advocate, he is actually a progressive with a dangerous immigration mindset.

Medina sent an email to supporters in September expressing staunch support for the DREAM Act amnesty bill.

“It’s essential we urge all Senators to vote yes on the DREAM Act amendment,” he wrote.

The email fittingly closed with the phrase, “¡Si se puede!” or “Yes we can!”

The blanket amnesty of illegals in our country is not just important to Medina on a personal level, but it is a crucial part of the Democrat plan to regain power, and possibly re-elect President Obama in 2012.

Medina previously served as a member of Obama’s National Latino Advisory Council and as honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America.  As such, he used the platform of an America’s Future Now! Conference in 2009 to outline a plan for long-term Democrat rule through blanket amnesty.

“We reform the immigration laws; it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters. If we have eight million new voters who care about, and will be voting, we will be creating a governing coalition for the long term.”

    RED FLAG WARNING ON THE DREAM ACT–AMNESTY

    The facts about the Dream Act and not the propaganda from Senator Harry Reid’s Liberal party leadership that must–END? Sen. Jeff Sessions put out the following release last week on the DREAM Act, that it’s an incremental illegal-alien amnesty bill. IT IS A VERY CAREFULLY PLANNED AMNESTY, FULL OF RHETORIC? BUT EVERY TAXPAYER NEEDS TO READ THE FULL TEXT OF THE WHITE PAPER. Remember your taxes are certain to accelerate upwards, to pay for all these indecent provisions. American citizens are already having money extorted from them to pay for the babies of illegal aliens born here, the education of illegal alien children, the health care for all family members and crammed prisons and jails for convicted illegal alien felons. All needs to to be paid for by your taxes? High on the list of Negatives is that the students, will be able to sponsor immediate family members under the chain migration law.

    Not so much the students who would become naturalized citizens, but the chain migration that would snowball for all family members. As I have said before we are committing financial suicide, because the majority of guarantors never honor their affidavits to support the people they vouch? In the end the older family folks who have never paid into the Social Security system, become another public welfare liability. Hundreds of thousands or may be millions have been allowed into America on the surety of the original sponsor, who failed to support his-her immediate family. Over the years taxpayers have been confronted with this issue, as the US government never had the man-power to enforce this sponsorship law. Years of non-compliance has be come yet another Social Security, (SSI) Supplementary Income of Tax payers left to pay even heavier taxes in support of people who were sponsored and then neglected. The amount of money that cannot even be estimated, that is being appropriated every year to account for the illegal immigration invasion.

    The invasion hasn’t stopped and never will until we cut of all welfare entitlements?

    WANT THE REALITY OF COSTS? GOOGLE—Illegal immigrant costs and find out for yourself and then you decide? Then go to the Heritage Foundation website and it will explain with graphs, projections and text by the reputable in-depth analysis by Robert Rector.

    Next week will add further enticements for illegal immigrants to come here, if this Dream Act passes?

    Here is the full text of the Dream Act (S. 3827: Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act of 2010:

    These corrupted legislators will not even tell you the real costs, for settling instant-citizenship infants (Anchor Babies?) Here is the last chance to harass your Senator or Representative by phoning (202)224-3121. Challenge them to stop the Left wing zealots for planting another Amnesty in America called the DREAM ACT.
