People may not remember that back in the middle 2000s, conservative writers of the time - Tony Snow, Linda Chavez, and Michael Medved come to mind - were all pressing the GOP base to get on board with immigration reform. As I recall it, all of their articles sounded like they came directly from the White House Press Office, but they tried.

They all failed miserably. Now, with the heart of the GOP shrunken into an even tighter packed corrosive core, there’s no chance at all. Hence the GOP’s all out attack on voting rights and flat out voter suppression.

Yeah, on immigrants, and immigration, as well as trying to discourage his party from going off the anti-Muslim derp-end after the 9/11 attacks, Bush deserves credit.

I don’t find it so surprising that republicans are trying to kill immigration reform in 2013. They did the same thing when Bush tried it in 2007. All they want to do in regard to immigration reform and undocumented immigrants is whine about the need for immigration reform, continue to bash undocumented immigrants, and complain about the need to have a “secure” (militarized) border. They’re great at complaining about things, but when it comes to really working to solve any problem, they wimp out every frigging time.

With respect, speaking as a conservative, I disagree about Bush’s motives. Ever since he was governor, he has been saying stuff like his well known Family values don’t stop at the Rio Grande.

What he means is Hey, hicks, the newcomers will vote to end abortion. To oppose immigration is to support abortion. You don’t support murdering babies, do you?

Bush is lying to his voters on behalf of his supporters in big business & big agriculture. Meanwhile, demagogues on the Right are making racist attacks which completely ignore that illegal immigrants were de facto invited into the country.

A phrase of Theodore Roosevelt’s fits the situation: malefactors of great wealth.
