GOP warms to immigrants they tried to close government over

Not even two years ago, the Republican-controlled Congress refused to fund the Department of Homeland Security unless it gutted President Barack Obama’s controversial immigration orders.

Now, Republicans want to help the very same group of immigrants they once targeted.

GOP lawmakers face a stark reality come Jan. 20: They’ll have a president in the White House who will actually unravel Obama’s executive actions on immigration that they in Congress had fought tooth-and-nail. And with that comes roughly 740,000 so-called Dreamers who put their faith in the Obama administration — as well as sensitive personal data — to get a reprieve from deportation and permits to work legally.

Strange turn of events...

Is it that the GOP were never outraged about the policy to begin with? But only the party that implemented it?

Is there a new emerging faction of the GOP looking to represent the sane or moderate voters absent a Democrat majority?

Are they "cucks" or "RINOs"...will they enrage the "send them all back" wing of the right?

The Republicans never have wanted to "send em back". It was just part of their rhetoric in order to appeal to the meatheads that actually think mass deportations are reasonable.

Anything for a vote.

Exactly. They actually like having a permanent class of cheap labor because it keeps business costs down. They just pretend to be against them because their voters pretend to be against them (even though those same voters will also hire undocumented workers for cheap farm work, yard work, construction work, sex work, etc).

For an example, look at the huge influx of undocumented workers into Texas during Bush and Perry's terms as governor. Then compare that to the fact that Pres Obama deported more immigrants in his first 4 years than Pres Bush did in both of his terms combined.

Correct. The politicians and voters alike benefit from those that they shout-down politically.

As long as there are strong laws and taboos against those immigrants, it keeps them from being able to speak up about any abuses they face. Companies that hire them can regularly stiff them on their wages without fear of repercussions.

It's the same with human trafficking. Many immigrants are tricked into becoming sex workers or drug mules, but they also can't speak up about their horrible conditions without getting arrested. I'm convinced that this was done by design.

Sending them back is cost prohibitive. What you do is make America unwelcoming for illegals. No freebies. No companies willing to hire them.

Remove the reasons that bring them here and they will leave.

Do you honestly think a Trump presidency is going to stop companies from hiring illegals and the accompanying profits from cheap labor. Even Donald uses illegals in his business model. He's a businessman, remember?

www.nationalreview.com...

Here's what's going to happen. Trump will fast track a program so illegals will be able to work in the US. Green cards will be available at the 7/11 along with the slimjims, gas and Bud light. Or you can apply online at cheapworkr4U. org.

Trumps a business man and will do nothing to quash the profit by companies using cheap labor. Profit is GOD! Thus no Wall, and no mass deportations.

Spend, consume, work Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Because you started out playing against yourself? That's devotion right there.

I already have a car though, maybe you can give it to charity??

Heh, heh.

The trick is to keep the undocumented undocumented.

The labor is cheap, only because they are undocumented.

Document these folks, and they begin to demand "rights" just like American citizens.

There goes your cheap labor class.

Nobody ever wanted to get rid of illegals, but they all want the illegals to continue to think they could be deported at any time.

The only time the government will get serious about actually deporting all, or documenting all, these folks, is when automation comes and replace the cheap labor, with a new cheap labor class: robots.
