If Immigration Reform (Amnesty) Passes, Be Ready for the Deluge

Nancy Reagan purportedly once quipped as she looked out into a rally crowd, “Look at all those lovely white people.” Of course, this was probably a liberal-media-fabricated quotation used to portray the Reagans as racist, but when it comes to immigration reform in the Obama administration, the Democrats may well be cooing, “Look at all the lovely brown people,” as they envision the votes they can get through amnesty–even way off into the future.

With about 12 million Latins here illegally already (maybe more), that’s a pretty big influx of Democratic votes coming down the pike, or so the thinking goes, but ask the Mexican people what the result of amnesty will be and they’ll tell you–even more illegals crossing the border.

According to a Zogby poll, 56 percent of Mexicans say amnesty will spur further border crossings, not less.

And now comes the whopper: If they could, 36 percent of all Mexicans, or roughly 39 million people, would move to the U.S. in a heartbeat.

A few million here and a few million there, to paraphrase Everett Dirksen, and pretty soon you’re talking Democratic dictatorship.

As they would say in the Obama White House, “Precisely.”
