Tuesday’s Elections Show The Power Of Money, Not The Appeal Of Amnesty

Ellmers Rescued by Pro-Amnesty Zuckerberg GroupWhile open borders lobby groups like Bibles, Badges and Business, are rushing to claim that Tuesday’s primary results show that amnesty is a “winning” issue, in truth the results show only that amnesty is well funded, not popular. Which we already knew! While these amnesty proponents brag that incumbents like pro-amnesty Rep. Renee Ellmers “won decisively while running on a pro-immigration stance,” in fact wins like hers, given the context, were neither decisively won nor based on an honest portrayal of her real stance on immigration. Rep. Ellmers, with all the power of incumbency and a campaign chest of $1 million, proved unable to get 60% of the vote against her challenger Frank Roche, who ran against her with a mere $23,000. With a financial advantage of over 43 to 1, such results do not constitute a decisive win.

Furthermore, Rep. Ellmers did not run on her actual position on immigration. The supposedly “conservative” arm of amnesty proponent Mark Zuckerberg’s Fwd.us, “Americans for a Conservative Direction” also spent at least $150,000 airing ads on television claiming that Rep. Ellmers is “working hard to secure the border and fix our broken immigration system once and for all.  No amnesty, period.” Unfortunately, for unsuspecting voters who just haven’t heard how to decode amnesty speak, the words “No amnesty, period,” often do convey the false but understandable idea that the candidate does not intend to reward virtually all illegal aliens with legalization.

Open borders lobbyists perpetually claim that Americans widely support amnesty.  But for years, going back at least to President George W. Bush, they have refused to call amnesty by its name. If amnesty were actually popular, there’d be no need for code words.

    It is an act of TREASON by Obama, Holder and Congress to NOT enforce existing immigration laws as they ALL swore to do!.

    It is an act of TREASON by Obama, Holder and Congress to legalize the dumping of 12-18 million illegal aliens and their naturalized children into this economy and let the unemployed American citizens pick up the tab for their crimes, healthcare and children’s education.

    Id suggest voting for her Democratic opponent. The Democrat will be not be influential in the minority.

    This is what happened to Spencer Abraham in 2000. We got Debbie Stabenow but the 2000,2006 and 2007 bills failed.

    The truth is North Carolina GOP Congresswoman Renee Ellmers supports granting amnesty or legal status to unauthorized aliens. ROLL CALL in February of this year issued a survey of House Republican members about their position on Speaker Boehner’s immigration principles document he released 1/30/14 that included granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. Rep Ellmers was one of only nineteen House Republicans who supported Boehner’s immigration principles document. Mark Zuckerberg’s pro-amnesty pack poured money into Ellmer’s primary re-election campaign. Her pathetically underfunded opponent took her to task for supporting amnesty. The opponent, Frank Roche, received an astounding 41% of the vote! The truth is Rep Ellmers had to lie about her position on amnesty in order to ‘win’.

    If amnesty is given, what is the US Chamber of Commerce going to do when all those workers are no longer exploitable. They will have to go overseas and round up another crop and import them to fill up all those job slots.

    The only real solution to the immigration problem is MANDATORY e-verify. Currently only about 10% of American business participate for obvious reasons. A law with no enforcement is no law at all.

    Exactly. She’s a fraud, and she ran a fraudulent campaign. The voters actually DID vote for “no amnesty period”. But that is not her position or her intent. She and her massive corporate funded campaign simply lied to the voters and the voters had no way to know the difference. Her position is actually the position held by Roche.

      To be clear, her alleged position of no amnesty is actually the position held by Roche.

    The Big “Flat Earther Misconception” of Overpopulation/Amnesty in America

    Is very similar to when the church [MSM for open borders] falsely allegated the Earth was flat in the Middle Ages….they even called astronomy, physics and math witchcrafts.

    Now-a-days the open border Flat Earthers call today’s demographic science proving the earth can only sustain 1-2 billion people and feed them right ,outragious. What proof do they have? They falsely allegate that if you want depopulation you’re against people and you’re “BAD”. Their scientific proof is nada.
