If Republicans inject the Poison Pill to immigration reform, the RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is to blame for turning blind eye

If politicians from the Republican party inject a Poison Pill to comprehensive legal immigration reform, I’m afraid fingers should be squarely pointed at RNC’s Chairman Reince Preibus for turning a blind eye and sitting out a fight that will affect millions of American families of Mexican descent (fastest growing demographic population in our Nation).  There are approximately 500,000 new coming of age Latin voters every single year and I see a train wreck coming for the GOP in light of their lack of leadership.

Most everyone will agree that the immigration system is broken, and immigration must be fixed at the federal level since the immigration law is protected under the Supremacy Clause of our United States Constitution.

In the coming weeks, we will indeed keep a watchful eye on the RNC to see if they really are in support of the economy.  As you may already know, legal immigration will enhance the economy and it appears the RNC leadership continues to be silent to that regard.

According to a recent New York Times article:

“Immigrants contribute more in tax and social contributions than they get in individual benefits,” said Jean-Christophe Dumont, the O.E.C.D. official who headed the study. “That’s why the net fiscal impact is mostly positive.”

Yet, the RNC leadership continues to be silent on the economic positive impact of legal immigration.

NBC News discusses the RNC’s silence in depth below:

Just three months ago, the Republican Party establishment couldn’t have been more resolute: Achieving immigration reform is essential to the GOP’s future political viability.

A post-election autopsy commissioned by the Republican National Committee insisted that the party “must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform” or else risk that the GOP would “continue to shrink to its core constituencies only.”

….

The RNC report, which was released three months ago, was striking in its urgency – in part because as a political committee, the RNC rarely stakes out policy positions. But, as the report noted, immigration reform has become a “litmus test” among Hispanic voters, an increasingly important voting bloc that went for President Barack Obama by 44 points over Mitt Romney last fall.

But the RNC and many other instruments of Republican politics have mostly sat quietly as a bruising intraparty fight plays out on Capitol Hill.

Many other politically savvy Republicans echoed the RNC report’s language on immigration when it debuted almost three months ago.

Since then? Silence, mostly. The RNC hasn’t aired any ads or posted any videos looking to give Republican lawmakers the cover they need to support the immigration reform law now before the Senate;

Most everyone will agree that the immigration system is broken, and immigration must be fixed at the federal level since the immigration law is protected under the Supremacy Clause of our United States Constitution.

The Republican Party has been hijacked by dixiecrat and unreasonable Tea Party extremists, and weak leadership will drive the entire Party into the ground.

Talk is cheap, Priebus.  If you really want “Hispanic” outreach … create ads and new messaging with regard to the positive economic impacts of legal immigration reform.
