[quote=LivingInTheDesert;30686914]Steve King says the immigration debate has created three groups of supporters in the United States.

"First, there are the elitists," King begins. "Elitists see that they should have access to cheap labor to clean their homes, mow their lawns,and take care of their gardens. The second group is Democratic power brokers.They see a tremendous advantage to the Democratic Party that turns us into a one-party system if they do what they're trying to do with the Gang of Eight bill in the Senate.

"And the third group is those employers of illegals who benefit from cheap labor at the expense of the taxpayers who are subsidizing them through welfare programs.

If you want to support the elitists or Democratic powerbrokers or employers of illegal labor, then support of the Gang of Eight, listen to Grover, listen to Karl Rove," King says, referring to the GOP strategist,who also supports immigration reform.

"If you want to defend the Constitution, the rule of law, and preserve a better destiny for the United States of America — where individuals can make aliving with their hands, their backs, their minds, standing on their own two feet — then stand with me."[quote]

There is a fourth group of supporters. Ethnocentrics who think their ethnic group should be above our immigration laws and rewarded for breaking them or those with ties to that ethnic group (marriage, etc.). They are the ones threatening and blackmailing our politicians for their votes if their demands aren't met.

The fifth group would be bleeding heart liberals who haven't a clue nor to they care about the negative impact illegal immigration has on our own citizens. Misplaced compassion.

Yea, I call the fifth group the "white guilt" group. You have affluent liberal whites who don't live around illegals who don't really get the damage this is causing. It's not that they don't care, it's that their humanitarian impulses and white guilt are being manipulated by the first four groups to make it look like there's American public support for amnesty. These are the ones being called in the so-called "polls" showing that Americans favor amnesty.

The white suburban kids in college are also being manipulated by shrewed pro-illegal forces. These kids are aggrieved, or want to be aggrieved, and are spoiling for something to protest. Blame the hippy movement for this. This natural affluent cultural desire is easy to take advantage of, and they're certainly trying. Useful idiots, you might say.
