This is the theory? There were 3 million illegal immigrants granted amnesty under Reagan in '86. Didn't seem to do H.W. any good in '92 and Bush
was behind NAFTA which resulted in what was then a couple billion dollar trade surplus with Mexico into a $60+ billion deficit.
Even if one were to assume that every step of the this hypothetical plan was pulled off perfectly, and somehow the parents of these 52,000 children
all magically showed up and every single one was able to commit voter fraud, you're still talking about a drop in the bucket. About 127 million
people voted in the last presidential election. 100,000 additional votes wouldn't steal enough electoral votes to make a difference.
The number of illegal immigrants coming into the country from Latin America in any given year is almost purely a function of the job market. That's
why through the Clinton and Bush 43 years the illegal immigrant population quadrupled and peaked about a million persons higher than it is now, prior
to the recession.
Remember 2004 when Bush and Co (McCain, Kolbe, etc) were trying to push for amnesty? It's not about voter fraud, it's about showing the Latino
voters that you love Latinos. Do the Democrats use illegal immigration from Latin America for votes? Of course they do, and they do it without
actually having to do much of anything. It's like all the blabbering about gun control (or abortion on the Republican side).
But make no mistake, the votes everyone is pandering for are the legal Latino population (about 17% of the US population) not 100,000 phantom
fraudulent votes. Come on, think this through.
