Domestic Spying Is The Inevitable Result Of Our Insane Immigration Policy

  1. So says Ann Coulter and it's hard to disagree.

    ... .

    That's why the National Security Act of 1947, creating the CIA, expressly prohibited the agency from engaging in domestic operations. Now we have to spy on Americans because of all the imported Tsarnaevs and Zazis. We have created two huge problems where none existed before -- domestic terrorism and government spying -- all to help the Democrats win elections by changing the electorate.

    Not only do our post-1965 immigration policies create an unemployment problem, not only have they massively increased the crime rate, but now all Americans are being asked to give up their civil liberties to fulfill Teddy Kennedy's dream of bringing the entire Third World to live right here in America. (And vote Democrat!)

    When we're referring to "American citizen Anwar al-Awlaki" -- provoking Rand Paul to carry on for 13 hours about Obama killing an "American citizen" with a drone -- the phrase "American citizen" has lost its essential meaning. We don't have a drone problem. We don't have a spying problem. We have an immigration problem.

    Then Harry Truman wanted a domestic CIA and created the NSA in a secret letter in 1952 because the people back then wouldn't have allowed it if they had known what their government was doing.

    The NSA didn't come out of the closet until 2000 now that we have a more docile public.

    And our government appears to be rushing headlong into making it even worse.

    You could say that Republicans are opposed to Latino immigration on the sole ground that the majority of Latinos vote Democrat.

    Echoing Ann Coulter - an inflammatory self promoter - doesn't advance
    a meaningful dialogue on immigration, nor does it address illegal immigration.
    She has no solutions, but is a rabble rouser. She profits immensely from tapping into the fears, frustrations, and prejudices of Conservatives, particularly Conservatives who are unable or unwilling to adapt to a changing society and economy. She is a political entertainer, a gangly hypocritical demagogue.

    1) not all republicans ARE opposed.
    2) the majority of Latinos voting Democrat along with bleeding heart political correctness IS the primary reason democraps want more third world unskilled peasants immigrating here.

    We could start by shutting the fucking border. Just an idea

    A simple straightforward common sense idea embraced by our federal government? "Shirley" you're not serious.
  8. America's borders should be like Iran's or N. Korea's. Illegals and trespassers should FEAR stepping foot onto American soil other than legally prescribed manners.

  10. The idea that it is somehow illegitimate to base immigration policy on the demographics, political and otherwise, of those who would benefit and take advantage of policy changes baffles me.

    What are we supposed to do? Let illegal immigrants dictate policy to us, which seems to be the democrat plan?

    There is a simple fact of economic life that should drive our policy. You cannot have open borders with a large poor country next door to you AND a lavish welfare program for any and all immigrants. No country can afford it. It speaks volumes that we are the only country in the world with such a de facto policy.

    There has been a tsunami of lies about the immigration bill. Shamefully, most of them have come from pro amnesty republicans like Rubio, McCain and Graham. We have reached the point where it is obvious we cannot believe anything they say.

    Like Obamacare, it is absurd to lump all these different issues into one bill. The only sensible thing to do is address the problems in order. Solve one, move on to the next. The first and most obvious is border security. How can anyone possibly advocate for amnesty with the border unsecured? We know from experience there will be a mass rush to get in, which of course is precisely what Obama and the democrats want.

    The dumbest argument of all is that republicans are doomed politically unless they go along with amnesty. Simple math shows that the reverse is true. You cannot add 30 million or so new voters who will vote 70% democrat and survive as a national party. Graham and Rubio seem to live in an alternative universe where these poor, welfare dependant immigrants will magically start voting for the likes of Mitt Romney. In any event, he lost the election largely due to dumb decisions he made, plus low turnout by his voters and suspiciously high turnout by inner city blacks.
