Messaging Mishaps – Immigration

Posted: August 16, 2015 by socklessjoe in GOP FAIL

Talk of curtailing illegal immigration has a way of hitting some folks’ “racist” triggers.

Sometimes it’s genuinely the speaker’s fault. But a lot of the time it’s the media lackey (whose significant other works for Democrats, but they are totally neutral) who put a racist-y spin on things.

The hilarious thing about putting the kibosh on illegal immigration is that it would primarily help… immigrants.

And other Democratic constituencies too, like young Af-Ams.

It’s a supply and demand thing.  If you reduce the supply of low-skill labor, wages for existing low-skill labor will naturally rise.  The best thing that could happen to a low-skill (legal) Mexican-American voter is border security.

That nobody in the GOP seems to be able to articulate this is deeply regrettable.
