To Whom Does RPV Now Pander?

By Greg L | 5 April 2014 | RPV, Virginia Politics | 15 Comments

Yeah, just in case anyone was under the impression that our new Executive Director of the Republican Party of Virginia was serving the interests of Virginia Republicans by inviting these folks into his headquarters for an unprecedented “unscheduled” meeting, here’s what “Fast For Families” is touting on their twitter feed.

Sure, it’s a good idea to pander to the interests of “Organizing for America” in hopes someday those folks will vote for you.  Really.

Here’s some more:

And of course, here’s a bunch of these folks together.  Notice all the Republicans at this event?  Well, me neither.

You know, someday someone ought to start a political party that opposes Democrats and their bad policies.  I might be interested in being a part of that.

    I want a new party. This is really too much. Shaun Kenney’s sanctimonious lecture to these people supporting illegal immigration and citizenship for illegals was really too much. Kenney is Executive Director of the Republican Party of Virginia, the head of the party in Virginia. This arrogant jerk who wants to open our borders to everyone does not represent me. I want a party that does. RPV ain’t it.

    Those who favor and support amnesty for illegals are Traitors.

    I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone in either major party who “supports illegal immigration”. I would guess such folks, if they exist at all, are a statistically insignificant group. Similarly, I have never heard anyone in either major party support proposals (if there ever were such proposals “to open our borders to everyone. . . .” Finally, I have never seen or heard anyone from either party seriously propose “amnesty” for unlawful immigration. It’s a non-issue. The closest thing to that is that there are many conscientious, knowledgeable, patriotic citizens who have spent a lot of time and effort studying the immigration issue as it exists in this country (virtually every advanced nation has some version of the same problem) and who have concluded that it is important to the welfare and prosperity of the United States to find ways to bring the estimated 10 million (probably a lower number these days) unauthorized immigrants in this country into some kind of trackable, visible relationship with local state and federal authorities, that would be subject to taxation, regulation and contribution for services. In every case that I know of, the price for doing so would include payment of a substantial fine (hardly “amnesty”). Jeanine and Cynic could lower their blood pressures a bit by coming back to the real world. There was a time a few years ago where stirring up uninformed hysteria on this issue was worth a few votes. That whole period was a bit like Orson Welles’s “War of the Worlds” Hallowe’en broadcast. We’re moving on now.

    “Substantial fine.”

    That one always cracks me up. What if they don’t have a job? Those are hard to come by these days.

    What happens if they don’t pay this so-called “substantial fine”?

    Substantial fines will go into lock boxes at USCIS, where it goes after that is usually a crapshoot. One thing for sure Bob Goodlatte’s fellow immigration lawyers are combing thru beach property locations listings with linked golf courses as we post. Grounds beautifully maintained by their … clients?

    Really, the two primary alternatives are
    1) Round up all illegals and ship them out of country.
    2) @Scout

    In either case, “the devil is in the details.” And it’s agreeing on the details that stymies progress so far.

    Re #1 —
    • How are the illegals rounded up and shipped out.
    • What about children who are birthed in this nation by illegal parents.
    • Border security.
    • Action against future illegals.
    • Action against legal aliens who fail to comply with the rules for staying here.
    • Action against illegals who return after being shipped out.

    Re #2 —
    • Border security.
    • Action against future illegals.
    • Action against aliens who fail to comply with the rules for staying here.
    • Action against current illegals who stay in the shadows.
    • Rules regarding family members who currently reside out of country.
    • Rules regarding children who are birthed in this nation by illegal parents.
    • Action against legal aliens who fail to comply with the rules for staying here.
    • Action against illegals who return after being shipped out.

    There are some options that would help alleviate the impetus for illegals to come:
    1) No automatic citizenship to children born here to parents who are illegal aliens.
    2) Make English the official language.
    3) Have public schools accept only citizens and legal aliens.
    4) No government paid schooling for ESL classes.
    5) Make employers verify citizenship status (mandate E-verify).
    6) Tighter border security.

    Anyway, these are some of the considerations that need to be addressed and then resolved.
    Obviously, there are many directions and details that legislators cannot agree upon so meanwhile the nation continues to spin on this issue. If we could get started with the simpler 6 items above, and resolve them, then addressing the broader illegal issue would be easier.

    I agree with several of your points. But you missed the most obvious option: improve the reception and processing mechanisms at the border and before one gets to the border to make authorized entry more palatable than unauthorized entry. A lot of the unlawful entries reflect the complete un-workability of the present system. It is very much in the interests of the United States to have a border security system that is easy to use and that does not deter people who can make useful contributions to the prosperity of this country. We don’t have that now.

    Scout, my blood pressure is fine.
    And, an already overpopulated country does not need or require any more people. More people; more problems.

    Amnesty for unlawful immigrations. What nonsense since the federal government is pardoning most, if not all, of them for most of the crimes they committed. And in spite of all the pardons would bet that illegals probably make up between 23% - 25% of the federal prison population. And entering the country illegally is a crime.

    BTW - Malthus was right.

    How do you measure over-population, Cynic? What is the ideal number of persons that should inhabit this country? No one has seriously proposed amnesty, so stop worrying about it.

    Remember that there ARE NO labor shortages. The largest engineering organization IEEE found that the USA is graduating approximately TWICE as many Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals as there are jobs available for them in the USA.

    Illegals from middle America are not coming here for engineering jobs.

    “not coming here … ”

    Of course not - illegals come here out of “love”!

    Barbara Comstock SAID she voted for Barak Obama! I read it in the Washington Times. Not exactly your typical left wing propaganda machine-

    She SAID she was following Rush’s operation chaos, but she VOTED FOR OBAMA!!!!?!?!

    Why this has not been given more coverage in the propaganda wing of the Comstock campaign (BD) I am not surprised.

    See it here: Washington Times: Seeking U.S. House seat, GOP’s Comstock defends ‘08 Obama vote in Dem primary

    The Fairfax Republican “had participated in Rush Limbaugh’s 2008 ‘Operation Chaos’ to keep the Democrat primary going and nominate who she thought was the weakest candidate who Republican John McCain could beat,” campaign manager Susan Falconer said in a statement.

    The movement, however, was originally meant to ensure Mr. Obama got “bloodied up” politically, Mr. Limbaugh told Fox News in May 2008 as Mr. Obama was on the cusp of securing the nomination.

    Why is that important, Galston?

    Is it too late to send Shaun Kenney to the curb? He probably hasn’t received his first paycheck yet, and unloading him early during his probationary period might be the best approach. When he speaks, he sounds like a pure hack. I’m actually embarrassed for the RPV.
