While most folks in the Southwest these days plead for rain, John McCain prays that House Republicans impale themselves on the rusty sword of immigration reform:
“We hope and pray that our Republican colleagues will take up the issue, and we can join together, Republicans and Democrats … A failure to act is de facto amnesty for 11 million people living in the shadows,” McCain said on Sunday, neglecting to mention that acting means actual amnesty for those same 11 million undocumented Democrats.
McCain, having failed in three previous attempts to legalize the illegals, is hopeful that the fourth time’s the charm. And so are the usual suspects among the American left. Said Maya Castillo, president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) of Arizona, “We are one step closer to passing comprehensive immigration reform that’s worth our values.”
As SEIU spent $28 million dollars on ensuring the reelection of Barack Obama, their values should be obvious to everyone. But not, apparently, to “de facto” Republicans like the senior senator from Arizona.
“If we continue to polarize the Latino/Hispanic vote, the demographics indicate that our chances for being in the majority are minimal,” McCain said.
In 2012, Latinos voted 71% – 27% in favor of Obama. They’re already pretty much polarized. But, as a wise man once said,
“Across this country this is the agenda I have set before my fellow prisoners.”
Wait a minute. It wasn’t a wise man who said that. It was John McCain.
