Tea Party warns GOP of mass exodus if amnesty passes #tcot

Tea Party warns GOP of mass exodus if amnesty passes

POLICY & ISSUESAUGUST 2, 2013BY: DAVE GIBSON

capitolSince the U.S. Senate passed President Obama's amnesty bill with very strong Republican support, many conservatives have stopped financially supporting the GOP and many more are ready to leave the party altogether.

In the last week, Rep. Paul Ryan has voiced his support for amnesty and is even reportedly working with longtime amnesty advocate Rep. Luis Gutierrez, to pass so-called 'immigration reform' legislation in the House.

Fed-up with the the party they have supported with both their votes and their wallets, the Tea Party Immigration Coalition (TPIC) recently penned a letter to Reince Preibus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee.

The leadership of the TPIC asked this columnist to publish the letter...

Dear Chairman Preibus,

We are writing to advise you of a developing situation that should alarm you, as it does us. Tea Party and other patriot groups are hearing grumblings from their members that should concern the Republican Party.

The issue regards the amnesty of illegal aliens that is currently being discussed in Congress.

The discussion about "immigration reform," which we understand as code words for "amnesty" and the support of amnesty voiced by many Republicans in government, and out, has many of our members talking about leaving the Republican Party.

Also, many are saying they are seriously considering support for a Third Party.

Regardless of the widespread belief that a lack of support for border security and immigration enforcement led to defeat last November, this current discussion of amnesty has the potential for decimating the ranks of Republican activists at a time when all attention needs to be focused on the 2014 mid-term Congressional elections.

As the problems of illegal immigration continue to grow and impact citizens in every city in our country, the response by Republicans must be pro-enforcement, not amnesty.

Republican support for an amnesty will not impact the Hispanic vote one bit, as history has proven.

The contention that Republicans will win Hispanic votes by supporting amnesty is an offense to Hispanic Americans because it implies that by forgiving an illegal act, the Republicans can buy Hispanic votes. The whole concept insults the integrity of Hispanic American citizens.

Please understand, this is not a threat. This is what we are hearing and it concerns us because of the damage that will be done to the Republican Party.We are at a point in history when we need every friend we've got to halt the slide into the inevitable destruction of our economy and our country that will occur if conservatives are not elected to the government.

Various Tea Party and Patriot groups across the country are signing onto the letter, which will be sent to Chairman Preibus soon, according to TPIC President Rick Oltman.

Recent history gives further credence to the TPIC's warning...

During a press conference on May 8, 2012, the Republican National Committee's Director of Hispanic Outreach, Bettina Inclan told reporters that Mitt Romney was yet to make a decision on how to deal with the important issue of illegal immigration.

Inclan stated: "My understanding that he is still deciding what his position on immigration is."

Though less than an hour after making this damaging admission, Inclan sent out a Tweet, saying:"I misspoke, Romney's position on immigration is clear."

However, the horse had already left the barn at that point, and the apprehensions that many conservatives had about the former Massachusetts governor were given more credence.

Unfortunately, for those of us who wish to see the rule of law enforced and priority given to unemployed Americans over foreign nationals when it comes to jobs...there simply was no candidate to choose from this election year.

And, that is why fewer Republican voters showed up to the polls last year, than did in both the 2008 and 2004 elections.

Both parties already seem to agree that government should be big and expensive (despite GOP rhetoric), and now it would seem that the Republican Party is embracing the idea of rewarding those whose first act in this country is a crime.

If this is to be the case, Republicans can now bid farewell to the White House forever, as true conservatives will never compromise their principles as the GOP seems to do so easily.
