Romney Addresses Republican Amnesty Group

hardworking-education-seeking-god-loving-family-oriented.jpgWASHINGTON D.C. – Mitt Romney was at his pragmatic best today, his hardworking-education-seeking-god-loving-family-oriented.jpgaddress highlighting the closing ceremony of the pro-amnesty Republican National Hispanic Assembly’s four day national convention and 33rd Anniversary dinner.

The Republican National Hispanic Assembly is the nation’s largest GOP organization that favors Illegal Immigration and works for both amnesty and open borders policies by promoting the theory that abolishing immigration law will win Hispanic votes to the Republican Party. The RNHA will neither distinguish between legal and illegal immigrants nor admit that legalizing millions of criminals is “amnesty” but it consistently favors amnesty legislation.

Romney spoke to the RNHA “prayer breakfast” at the Palomar Hotel in Washington D.C. and signaled, unmistakably, to the group, his unbridled enthusiasm for their agenda, but he did so in very precise, careful language. There is no one in the GOP who does this better.

“If you, say, name people who are hardworking, seek education, love God, love their families and value freedom, — it’s Hispanic-Americans, just like other Americans,” he said.

The unspoken point Romney was making is that Americans must assume, simply because they are Hispanics, that the invasion of criminals across our southern border is made up of “hardworking, education seeking, God-loving, family-oriented, small-government” role models. This does not explain why more than half of them live by committing crimes or collecting welfare, why they are massively over-represented as a group among the most violent wanted criminals and among Federal prisoners (12 Americans are murdered every day by illegal immigrants), have the highest rates of out-of-wedlock births, or why they have the highest dropout rates in America. Illegal Immigrants are one of the few groups in America that requires you  to commit a Federal crime just to join.

During his speech Mitt Romney said, “I want to make sure we continue an open door in immigration that welcomes people who come here with those kinds of values.” Clearly, according to Mr. Romney, all we need to know about a prospective immigrant is that he is Hispanic.

“Governor Romney made it clear his campaign had the ‘Welcome’ sign up for all, striking the important impact Hispanics will have on this upcoming election.” said Danny Vargas, the newly elected RNHA Chairman for 2007 – 2009.

  1. Time for the rethoric to die down a little. I will put my Republican and conservative credentials against anyone. I supported comprehensive reform of immigration for many reasons.

    The fact is that unless Republicans move fast to do some damage control among hispanics we are in big trouble. That 40 percent of the hispanic vote Bush got that so many seem to think is so deficient is really going to be deficient if it goes down to 20 percent.

    THe fact is that the people at the Republican National Assembly will be out there supporting Republicans even if they did not get their view implemented into law. That is a lot better than some segments of the party tha threaten to take their toys and go home if they don’t get their way on every single issue.

    THe Assembly are our partners not our enemy.

  2. JH, you say:
    “I will put my Republican and conservative credentials against anyone.”
    Okay, what are they?

    “I supported comprehensive reform …”
    That counts against your “conservative credentials” on social, fiscal and legal grounds. To support Comprehensive Amnesty you need to be: 1. a multiculturalist, 2. a fiscal liberal, and 3. against the rule of law.
    To counterbalance that you need some pretty hefty credentials. I’ll be waiting.

    As long as the NHRA votes Republican they are welcome to do so. I will be interested to see their endorsement of any candidate that believes in enforcing current Immigration Law. How many of them are in the Duncan Hunter campaign?
    To the degree that they work, within the party, as advocates of lawlessness, they are not only anti-Republican they are anti-American just as much as Democrats who work to undermine the U.S. war effort.
