Rally For Immigration Reform
Historically the parties have passed unpopular legislation by placing the dissenting party in the presidency. The list is long.
Bill Clinton passed welfare reform – to save it, deregulated Wall Street for Banksters in the name of regulating, sold out Democrat principles of defending workers - as he supported them by hopping in wall street’s back pocket, trying to take down medicare and Social Security, something dems claim to oppose, dramatic surveillance escalation, assassinating Americans without due process. Etc., etc.
Bush passed PHARMA’s prescription drug benefit as entitlement, something the GOP opposes. the ownership society HUD, etc., increased funding for schools through No child left behind, etc., etc.
You see most of the unpopular legislation get passed by the party who, “supposedly”, is opposed to such legislation,who should be the defender of whatever the unpopular legislation is meant to destroy/facilitate.
Immigration did not pass under Bush despite his efforts. It does not alter the fact that it will need to be a Republican president who “brings his party along” on the issue of immigration.
Only rarely have the American people risen up and successfully opposed the establishment on an issue that they so deeply desire, open borders. The vilification of anyone who challenges the concept of open borders is from the establishment’s handbook. The big media, big business, big labor, big politicians, big environmentalists, big churches, big immigrant right’s groups, etc., etc. demand reform, open borders, now.
When has the establishment ever advocated in your best interests? Just on this issue of immigration.
