Tea Party Express Jumps Shark, Endorses Illegal Alien Amnesty

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


obama amnesty

My second biggest complaint about Republican amnesty supporters is how lazy they are.

Take Sal Russo’s big pro-amnesty article. It’s virtually identical to the same amnesty pitches coming in from the GOP over the years.

The only difference is that Russo throws in stuff about “misty-eyed ideals of some of the liberal do-gooder reformers” for cred while championing the exact same amnesty policy.  And he mentions “What is good for America should be the sole criteria for immigration reform.”

What’s good for America somehow involves permanent Democratic Party rule.

It’s six paragraphs of the same stuff about border security (under Obama) and our desperate need for Third World doctors and engineers.

It’s the same tired set of cliches. Stop me if you’ve heard any or all of these.

“The U.S. immigration system is flawed and broken”

“a rational visa policy”

“Border security must be an essential element of any immigration reform.”

These are pre-chewed talking points being vomited up all over again. They’re soulless and lifeless. And it gets worse once Russo makes his amnesty pitch.

Finally, we need to make the 11 million people who are here illegally obey the law, pay taxes and come out of the shadows. We have to get them right by the law in exchange for legal status, but not unbridled amnesty. This should include penalties, background checks to root out criminals, and the requirement that they learn English, understand the Constitution and be committed to our basic freedoms. We must ensure there is no special pathway to citizenship that puts them in front of people who waited in line.

Every dishonest phrase here has already been said by Rubio and co. Every point here has already been discredited. But that doesn’t stop Russo from using the same exact language that was worked out years ago by pollsters and consultants to sell the same rejected message.

At this point I would be more likely to trust an amnesty advocate if he would just admit that he was pitching amnesty, instead of the same old lines about going to the back of the line and no special pathway to citizenship.

Behind it all stands one man. Of course.

Norquist and his guests — Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Strategist Sal Russo, America Online Founder Steve Case and American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas — strained to get the point across that the issue is not dead on Capitol Hill, and that House GOP leaders continue to plod along on a path to bring legislation to the floor.

All that this has really accomplished is to completely discredit Tea Party Express as an arm of the GOP establishment.

On Wednesday evening, Jenny Beth Martin, the co-founder of another leading tea party organization, Tea Party Patriots, released her own statement “clarifying” the group’s stance.

“We support legal immigration and the rule of law, according to the Constitution. There is already a legal path to citizenship for those wishing to come to the United States. Anyone who decides to get off that path and enter the United States illegally should not be given any sort of amnesty because doing so is neither fair nor equal treatment under the law.

“We must also demand the Obama administration enforce our current immigration laws. Those who are determined to have entered the country illegally and are on-track for deportation should be deported. Those who have been convicted of crimes and are serving sentences for their crimes should remain incarcerated until their sentences have been served.

“Conservatives are watching Congress like a hawk and will do everything to make sure immigration reform is done in a manner that respects the law and those who abide by it.”

    More proof that anyone who is aligned with Grover “Mr. Jihad” Norquist should be considered, and IS, an enemy of Constitutionalism and NOT a Conservative.

    • truebearing

      We all knew that the Left would infiltrate the Tea Party. Norquist and his slimy operatives are the perfect ones to do it.

      Only a complete fool would think that Russo’s drivel is remotely in sync with Tea Party values. Norquist’s fig leaf has shriveled to nothing as well. He’s using taxation issues as a legitimate storefront to sell his blackmarket agenda.

    Norquist is a pro-Palestinian embeded in the Republican party, and the TEA Party Express just showned its true colors. I am glad it doesn’t represent the other organizations. Just by associating with Grover Norquist they have lost all credibility.

    • The March Hare

      There have been objections to the TEA Party Express before this, but I never quite was able to figure the legitimacy of the claims. Now I am beginning to understand who they are.

      • Daniel Greenfield

        It’s a group created by several GOP consultants that feeds its money back to them.

        • The March Hare

          Thanks Daniel. I can always count on you to enlighten me. I have been very happy since your blog started and have tried to follow it as much as I can. You are a huge asset to the conservative community.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            thank you

        • truebearing

          More liberal GOP consultants? Is Steve Schmidt one of them?

  • Betty Eyer

    I just love watching the snake eating it’s own tail. Having to hold their noses and choose a demographic to embrace or die at the ballot box, they say no to women and blacks and try to take in Hispanics. Meanwhile they turn their witch hunts on each other. Make popcorn! This can only get more entertaining.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Republicans say no to women? Then why did Romney win the white female vote?

      • Betty Eyer

        He lost women overall. And polls are showing that in the last two years, GOP approval by women has dropped even more. Why don’t you guys do some more talking about rape and contraception? It’s really working for the Democrats!

        • Daniel Greenfield

          He won white women. He only lost women as a factor of losing minority votes.

          So your statement remains inaccurate.

          Speaking of rape, Bill Clinton, JFK and Ted Kennedy.

        • truebearing

          So talking about rape is worse than actually raping women, and in some cases drowning them, then skulking away and fabricating lies to protect yourself?

          Some of your fellow nutjob lefties in Madison say rape isn’t intrinsically wrong, in some cases. What does a genius like yourself say to that?

          • Betty Eyer

            I say that you are nearly incoherent and it’s really not clear where you were going with that but I think it’s obvious that you didn’t get there.

  • Coolchange

    If Obama would enforce the law! Obama has deported more illegals than any administration ever and net immigration from Mexico is neutral, but this concept of not enforcing immigration still persist.

    • American1969

      Does that include the 36,000 illegal alien rapists, muggers, and thieves that the Obama administration just released into the public?

    • The March Hare

      That is a phony claim and false numbers. They even count anyone turned away at the border as deported. It is all fake.

  • Davros11

    We need to persecute these illegal alien scumbags! Really make living in America so horrible for them that they just go back instead of staying here and sneaking around, moving from state to state trying to suck up each states welfare programs. We need to hunt them down and just keep pushing them south to the border, when they are caught here illegally they should be put onto a work detail and “FORCED” to work for us by cleaning our highways, our parks, our neighborhoods! Once they are tired of being “FORCED” to work for us they will be given the option of going back or another year of hard labor. Really! Really! make it so terrible for them here!

    • Daniel Greenfield

      We can just cut off their benefits by forcing states to establish legal residency for anything paid for by Federal money

          How was it fortified?

          To keep people on the inside from getting out?

    I could defend Amnesty.

    I could make a better economic argument than has been used so far for amnesty.

    But I cannot and will not advocate amnesty when they will prove that they have the border under control. That has to be FIRST!

    Until then high profile politicians that advocate amnesty are bast_rds.

        If I were the Russian FSB agent, I would recruit a kid born in the U.S whose parents entered the U.S. illegally and the family was subsequently deported. If said kid spoke English and Spanish fluently and graduated highschool, I think the FSB could recruit a number of them.

        We caught the German sabotouers landed by submarine during WW2.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Pastorius

        I am more concerned with citizens here, who are rabid and members of La Raza. Given the numbers of people, who are here illegally, I am not sure we could deport them without a lot of civil unrest from them and the Left. Things looked better between 2009 and 2011 when about a million self-deported.

        I am still against chain migration.

        The Catholic Churches plan to legalize the illegals to get b_tts in the seats is perhaps a pipe dream. Hispanics are becoming less religious. The same might happen with the DOD wanting the illegal Hispanic population as a potential manpower pool. Newly legalized illegals if they are making union wages might not want to join the military in sufficient numbers to appreciably change the manpower pool.

        • knowshistory

          we did not “catch” the german saboteurs. one of them had an attack of conscience, and turned in the rest of them. (speaking of an attack of conscience, can anyone imagine such a thing ever happening to a democrat?) in return for the honesty of the one german agent who ratted out the other saboteurs, the FBI claimed sole responsibility for the coup, and tried its best to get the honest german executed with the rest. the one who helped the USA almost lost his life at the hands of our government. (does that sound familiar?)

          • A Z

            True, ‘we did not “catch” the german saboteurs. one of them had an attack of conscience.’

            I have read about this in Military history magazine and some other magazines. Certain events tend to get rehashed in these magazines. Sometimes it is more edifying the 2nd time around.

            I forget about the whole beach watcher / Coast Guard aspect. It is a little fuzzy without the article for reference, so pointing out that they were not caught is important.

            It is important to show how much Luck we had. It begs the question as you point out “Will we get that much luck in the future?”.

  • Jerry Glenn

    Granting them some sort of recognized legal status does have
    appeal. I would support this only in conjunction with a constitutional
    amendment to the effect that no one who benefited from this policy can ever
    attain citizenship.

    • David Farrar

      We will need considerably more than that. As it stands at present, even the offspring of illegal aliens born in this country are considered Art. II §I cl. 4 natural born Citizens, and would be able to take the oath of office of the presidency of the United States, if elected, without ever pledging to support and defend the US Const.

        Doesn’t the natural born clause state they must be born of citizens of the US? Isn’t that the problem with Mark Rubio; his parents were not citizens when he was born?

        • David Farrar

          Yes; you are right: the natural born citizenship clause of Art. II §I cl. 4 should be read the same way you have understood the phrase to mean, as have 43 out of the last 44 elected Presidents: a person born of citizens of the US” within the jurisdiction. But, it doesn’t.

          We are being gaslite about our own American birthright.

          I cite the 2009 Ankney decision:

          “Based upon the language of Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 and the guidance provided by Wong Kim Ark, we conclude that persons born within the borders of the United States are ‘natural born Citizens’ for Article II, Section 1 purposes, regardless of the citizenship of their parents.”

      Such an amendment would never pass or even be legally recognized. A two tier system isn’t likely to hold up.

      Even migrant labor on very tight visas is risky

      • knowshistory

        a reasonable constitutional amendment establishing a two tier system of citizenship would never pass, but only because the illegal immigrationists would oppose it as insufficiently enabling their plans, rather than the valid reason: a two tiered citizenry is against everything our nation stands for. regarding legal recognition for a constitutional amendment, I am not aware of any mechanism to LEGALLY not recognize a constitutional amendment, if passed according to the requirements of the constitution. the democrats, however, have perfected a way to ILLEGALLY not recognize the constitution, and its amendments: just groom a cabal of liberals in the judiciary who will make rulings without reference to the actual words of the constitution. currently, the constitution, and its amendments are “interpreted” in this manner: if liberals like it, it is constitutional. if liberals don’t like it, it is not constitutional.

  • David Farrar

    There is nothing new here except an attempt by the corporate-dominated wing of the Republican Party to present their push poll in support of amnesty.

    Let’s be clear, Republican Tea Party supporters know there is no such thing as a lawful illegal. Republican Tea Party supporters, by a vast majority, want our present immigration laws strictly enforced as the best way to solve our present “immigration problem”.

    Republican Tea Party supporters know there is no way to protect our borders, or make them safe, as long as Congress keeps passing incentives for those who would cross our borders illegally. Republican Tea Party supporters are not going to support any political candidate whose agenda is amnesty for illegal aliens, period.

    Lastly, the timing of this story is proof positive the US Chamber of Commerce is working in conjunction with Obama to provide him a smokescreen to hide the fact that he has once again purposely, and will malice of forethought, usurped the US Const. by releasing thousands of illegal deportable aliens, many with felonious records.

    The real questions are whether Mr Russo was bought off and what does he personally have to gain from enlarging the supply of low skill low cost labor… and why is it in the interest of the country to write another law neither party’s leadership has any interest in enforcing (net result being wage suppression and more poor to vote Democrat)?

    The Tea Party was most effective when if focused on economic tyranny. Opposing government spending & debt, opposing regulation, and opposing Fed easy credit.

    The problem is that it ran candidates. Candidates have to have foreign policy, social policy, and a whole host of other positions. The Tea Party would have been far more powerful if it had remained a educational and private pressure group. It was better when it was critical of the excesses of both Parties. It could keep the focus on fighting big government.

    Obviously I hold the other issues to be important. But a bigger tent on economic liberty and fiscal sanity would have been more effective.

    “Finally, we need to make the 11 million people who are here illegally obey the law, pay taxes and come out of the shadows.”

    The best way to get lawbreakers to respect and obey the law is to forgive them from past transgressions with amnesty.

    Really? You’re sure about this? Suddenly people that get away with working “under the table” are going to sign up to pay taxes “according to the law” because we give them amnesty? Because they really are concerned about the law…

    Sure.

  • guest daj

    In all of the various posts here, I don’t see any discussion regarding how we round up all these illegals and get them out of the country. The number 11 million keeps being repeated, but I have heard numbers like 20 million illegals. Also, a large number of illegals are African, Eastern European, and others, many of whom came into the country legally and overstayed their visas. We surely are not proposing only Hispanic illegals be deported?
    And think of the logistics of mass deportation. How many Federal officers will it take to identify and round up the illegals. Where do they get sent, if there home countries won’t take them? Or if there is a very real chance they’ll be shot if the get sent home? How much will it cost to round them up and move them. If they have been here a long time and have a house, do we let them sell it or confiscate it, remembering that they may have worked long and hard to buy it, besides keeping their nose clean?
    Do we ship them to concentration camps to hold them until we can transport them out of the country? And how much is this campaign going to cost us in taking them into custody, transporting and processing them and shipping them home? As to taking American jobs, there are certainly a lot of Americans who need the work. But if you take a couple of busses to south Chicago and try to hire 100 people to work in a chicken processing plant, how long will it take to find 100 willing persons?
    Illegals are illegal, and something has to be done about them. They certainly should have no fast track to citizenship. On the other hand, the social and economic costs of deporting them is a very real problem, which must be evaluated and consiedered

    • knowshistory

      liberals whine endlessly about how hopeless it would be to try to deport all the invaders they have so willingly allowed to infiltrate our country. try avoiding stupidity like referring to enforcing our laws with words such as concentration camps, shot, “only Hispanic illegals”, “no fast track to citizenship” all of which betray the fact that the user really does not want to stop the attack, but wants instead to preen in his own goodness and generosity towards everyone in the world except our country’s legal citizens. just ask yourself this: could our esteemed government somehow find the means to export our illegal population if the citizens passed a law that the government could not collect even one more fine against a legal citizen until after the entire invading army of illegals was returned to the other side of our borders? of course they could. if our esteemed government devoted one tenth of the resources to the prevention and deportation of illegal invaders that it spends controlling the lives of our legal population, we would not be able to find an illegal invader in our country. just drive down the highway and count how many law enforcement goons are out there checking the licenses of legal citizens, searching the citizenry, harassing them, charging them with chicken feces violations, stopping people, bullying people, and doing everything EXCEPT enforce our immigration laws. what if that effort was committed to getting rid of our illegal invaders? while our heroes in blue, sworn to “protect and serve” are out there writing tickets to legal citizens for not wearing seatbelts, we are being invaded by hordes of foreigners that our all powerful (against legal citizens) government is helpless against. THE ONLY REASON OUR CRIMINAL GOVERNMENT CANNOT DEPORT OUR ILLEGAL INVADERS IS THAT IT IS TOO BUSY BULLYING THE LEGAL CITIZENS.

    VOTE TEA PARTY IN
    MIDTERM OR AMERICA IS FINISHED.

    The only chance for America to survive the criminal enterprises of the Obama
    Administration is opening up elections for the TEA PARTY. All I have seen from
    the Democrats is their Socialist agenda of SOMETHING FOR NOTHING, cover ups and
    downright lies. The issues Benghazi, spying and holding up applications for
    non-profit conservatives and now VA administration betraying veterans and a
    paramount issue that Homeland Security secretly releasing 36,000 Criminal legal and illegal immigrants being Released onto U.S. Streets in 2013 Almost
    just as bad the hard-core Republicans is to vote for TEA PARTY LEADERSHIP. If
    the American tax payer doesn’t rise up against Obama’s Socialist agenda, this
    country is lost. The only chance to survive this tyranny and his minions
    spitting on the U.S. Constitution, is to vote for the TEA PARTY leadership. I retired from the Merchant Marine; worked all
    my life and I have never seen a government that has become an evil entity to
    the people. I have taken a dime from government handouts, but Obama insists of
    giving assistance to illegal aliens. President Barack
    Obama is pushing for amnesty even though the Congressional Budget Office
    determined it will devastate the wages of working class Americans. If Washington gets its way we will lose our jobs to
    illegal’s. Sal Russo,
    co-founder of Tea Party Express, does not speak for the majority of TEA PARTY
    PATRIOTS, or TEA PARTY.ORG and they give no relevance to any Amnesty or any
    clemency for illegal aliens.

    We will be forced to pay even more outrageous health care
    costs to pay for these law-breakers. They already openly defy our laws, deface
    our flags and feed off our system. What will happen if they’re rewarded for
    their illegal and illicit activities? No Senate bill should be passed or any
    new law until these fools in Congress, build a fence along our Southern border
    constructed as the one in Israel. The
    majority of people, who vote for the Democrats and lobotomized Liberals, will
    be foreigners looking for freebies from this government; probably with illegal
    voting. Remember the TEA PARTY will abolish the IRS, so everybody pays with no
    exceptions.

    As a Constitutional Libertarian Tea Partier myself… allow me to CRYSTALIZE what IS… and what IS NOT “tea party”:

    REAL tea party:
    1. DECENTRALIZED. LOCAL. Example: Anytown Tea Party.
    2. FIERCELY UNAFFILIATED with ANY party.
    3. Supports THIRD PARTIES.
    4. Supports State nullification.
    5. Grievances include: TARP, illegal immigration, police/surveillance-state, NOT FOLLOWING THE CONSTITUTION.
    6. Objective: Restore Constitutional Liberty.
    7. Financed through the grassroots


    FAKE tea party:
    1. CENTRALIZED. Example: Tea Party Patriots, Freedomworks, Tea Party Express.
    2. FIERCELY REPUBLICAN.
    3. SMEARS AND RIDICULES third parties.
    4. REJECTS State nullification. Supports a SUICIDAL Con-Con.
    5. Grievances include: Obama, Obama, Obama and Obama.
    6. Objectives: Elect republicans.
    7. Financed through groups like Koch

    “The only difference is that Russo throws in stuff about “misty-eyed ideals of some of the liberal do-gooder reformers” for cred while championing the exact same amnesty policy.”

    I noticed (and I’m sure a great many others did too) that during the 2007 immigration fiasco the Ruling Class RINOs began using the language and the tactics of the libcultists. Those same RINOs have now adopted libcult tactics on a great many other issues, but the immigration issue stands out because on that issue the amount of daylight between the desires of the RINOs and the desires of the libcultists is almost impossible to detect.

    “It’s the same tired set of cliches. Stop me if you’ve heard any or all of these.”

    I am getting more and more disgusted at the tactics of the Ruling Class aparatchiks from BOTH sides of the political aisle who are increasingly interchangable on this subject. You can take a libcult journOlista from the NYT and put what they write in the pages of the National Review and you would never know it wasn’t written by a “conservative” (RINO) journalist. The carefully enforced boundaries of “allowable” discussion demand that they completely manicure away any discussions that involve the following:

    2) The massive increase in costs for allowing those newly-minted legals to tap into the federal entitlement systems, and don’t try spouting the lie that they will not be entitled to those benefits they never earned. They will, and in a very short time.

    3) The criminal culpability of those who allowed those 12 to 20 MILLION illegals into the country on their watch. You will NEVER see this one in print except for right here, right now.

    4) The desires of the American citizens as represented by poll after poll. The journOlistas will go so far as to take a miniscule poll sampling error (2% or so) and then claim that “the American people are increasingly moving towards out position”.

    With the exception of Frontpage 100% of the focus in any article on this subject appearing in any “legitimate” website – whether conservative or libcultist – Is on the Ruling Class concern for their soon-to-be-minted legal citizens: Bringing them “out of the shadows”; its all about “keeping families together”; “Its the right thing to do”, blah blah blah.
