Dem Support for Amnesty Threatens Their Most Loyal Voters

By Larry Elder




JewishWorldReview.com | In 1964, Malcolm X chastised black people for their blind allegiance to the Democratic Party.

He said: "You put them first, and they put you last — 'cause you're a chump. A political chump! ... Anytime you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that Party can't keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you are dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that Party — you're not only a chump but you're a traitor to your race."

The Democratic Party embraces "comprehensive immigration reform," which is code for amnesty, which, in turn, is code for "keep the borders porous so that we get a constant stream of new Democratic voters and cheap labor."

Attorney Peter Kirsanow, one of eight members of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, says that unskilled illegal aliens pose an economic threat to unskilled Americans, a disproportionate amount of who are black.

Last year, Kirsanow, along with two other committee members, sent a letter to his congresswoman, Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. The letter advised Fudge and the rest of the caucus to oppose the Democrats' proposed amnesty legislation. "Illegal immigration," said the letter, "has a disparate impact on African-American men because these men are disproportionately represented in the low-skilled labor force. ... The obvious question is whether there are sufficient jobs in the low-skilled labor market for both African-Americans and illegal immigrants. The answer is no. ... Granting amnesty to illegal immigrants will only further harm African-American workers."

What about the urban crime caused by some illegal aliens?

From Oct. 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014, over 57,000 unaccompanied alien children, or UACs, have been apprehended entering the country illegally. Many voluntarily turn themselves over to authorities with the goal of obtaining "permiso" to remain in the country. Not only do they pose a threat to jobs, but also we have no idea how many are intent on entering the country to commit crimes. According to Pew Research, some 85 to 90 percent of the "children" apprehended at the border are teens, between 13 and 17 years of age.

In Los Angeles, in 2008, 17-year-old high school academic/athletic scholar Jamiel Shaw was shot and killed just three doors away from his house while walking home from the mall at 8:40 p.m. The student athlete with a solid GPA was a promising football star who had been named the Southern League's most valuable player, and he'd recently received phone calls from schools like Rutgers and Stanford. His killer? An illegal alien who had served time in jail for assault with a deadly weapon and been released one day earlier by police who, apparently, never bothered to check his immigration status.

Hours after his release, he killed Shaw. Shaw's crime? Wearing a red Spider-Man backpack. The color red, in the mind of the killer, meant that Shaw was member of some rival gang. He was not.

Only days ago, four people were arrested for the beating death of a Chinese graduate student attending USC, a school located right in inner-city Los Angeles. One of the four admitted that, seven years ago, he entered the country illegally. Whether, as was the case with Shaw's killer, this illegal alien had a post-entry arrest record, we don't yet know.

In Maryland, just days ago, six young Hispanics — illegal aliens, according to a local ABC affiliate — were arrested for stabbing to death a black homeless man. Several of the alleged killers admitted belonging to the notorious MS-13 gang.



Republicans should exploit the Democratic embrace of "comprehensive immigration reform" by emphasizing the threat illegal aliens pose to jobs. Back in 1994, the majority of California's black voters supported Proposition 187, which would have prevented illegal aliens from getting taxpayer-paid public education and non-emergency medical benefits. Opponents challenged it in court, and the governor ultimately gutted the proposition. But it passed not only among the majority of white voters, but the majority Asian and black voters as well.

The GOP has a lot to make the case for the black vote. Consider:

Black voters support voter photo ID, despite Attorney General Eric Holder's denunciation of such laws as "racist." Some polls put black support for voter ID at over 70 percent.

While Obama pursues "economic justice," black Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., have called the black unemployment rate "unconscionable."

Polls show inner-city parents want vouchers so they can opt out of underperforming government schools. So do Republicans.

Republicans support securing our borders before discussing the legalization for the 10-12 million estimated illegal aliens here now. Recent polls show Republicans put "stopping the flow of illegal aliens" as their top legislative issue.

In 1964, blacks voted 80 percent Democratic. Fifty years later, it's 95 percent. What would Malcolm say?
