I just received this and thought I’d share it. Elections do make a difference. Still, I can’t help saying about the Republican Party: What a bunch of hypocrites. Others might say: Better Late than Never.
SEAN HANNITY JOINS GROWING CONSERVATIVE CHORUS FOR A MARKET-BASED IMMIGRATION PLAN. SHIFT SIGNALS “TIDAL WAVE OF SUPPORT FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM
Washington, D.C. —Today, Alfonso Aguilar, Executive Director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, hailed Sean Hannity’s leadership after he told his radio listeners Thursday that he has “evolved” on immigration and recognizes the need for a sensible solution.
“Sean Hannity has taken a bold step and conservatives are behind him. It is time to allow the market—rather than a bureaucratic federal government—to determine our immigration policy,” said Mr. Aguilar.
The conservative grassroots favors sensible immigration reform that includes the legalization of undocumented immigrations. The Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles commissioned a study in May of 2011, which showed that the majority of likely Republican primary voters favor legalization, and even a path to citizenship, for undocumented immigrants as long as it is coupled with border-security measures.
“There is a growing momentum within the conservative movement to embrace a market-based immigration plan that is in line with Ronald Reagan, who said it best: ‘No regulation or law should be allowed if it results in crops rotting in the fields for lack of harvesters,’” said Mr. Aguilar.
“The tidal wave of support for real reform is growing. While President Obama has failed to deliver on his promises to Latinos, Republicans in Utah passed and signed the first temporary worker law in the country. At their national convention, Republicans included a temporary worker provision in their national platform. The influence of the opposition to reform—primarily unions and restrictionists—is slipping because their arguments have fallen flat.”
