In Haaretz, a frank new article discusses an ethnic alliance between Jews and Hispanics in a renewed push for “comprehensive immigration reform.” The basis of this alliance is a quid pro quo: Hispanics back Jews on Israel, Jews back Hispanics on immigration, and both unite to stick it to the White man!
Listen to this:
“”The organized Jewish community is more committed than ever to immigration reform. A letter supporting immigration reform, which will be sent out to all Senate offices in early February, was signed by dozens of national Jewish organizations.”
The alliance behind “comprehensive immigration reform” has decided that it must get rammed through Congress within the next three months before its unpopularity becomes an albatross for the Democrats in the fall elections. Luis Gutierrez (Hispanic) and Chuck Schumer (Jew) are initiating legislation in Congress.
It should be interesting to see if a chastened Obama is willing to gamble his eroding support among independents on such an unpopular bill. Nothing stirred more anger against George W. Bush than his support for amnesty back in 2005 and 2006.
