    Which Republican presidential candidates support amnesty?

    March 1, 2015
    By Pedro Gonzales

    Which Republican presidential candidates support amnesty? I have analyzed all the major Republican presidential candidates (except Ben Carson and Rick Sanctorum, who are long shots, and Donald Trump, who has undocumented hair). I have found that all the major presidential candidates support amnesty for illegal aliens, except for one. Can you guess which one?

    Jeb Bush: Jeb, as we all know, supports amnesty for illegal aliens, and he's proud of it. If he were running in Honduras, I would vote for him in a minute.

    Marco Rubio: Marco Rubio co-authored a bill that would have given amnesty to illegal aliens. He has since tried to walk back from that, saying:

    ... that he’s learned he was wrong on his approach to immigration reform.

    Rubio, a onetime Tea Party favorite whose support for a comprehensive immigration reform package hurt him with the base, told the conservative crowd that he now understands U.S. borders must be secured before anything else can be done. what I’ve learned is you can’t even have a conversation about that until people believe and know, not just believe but it’s proven to them that future illegal immigration will be controlled
    .

    And if you believe that, I have a taco truck in Juárez I'd like to sell you. I think it's pretty clear that he still supports amnesty, but now he promises not to talk about it until he's elected.

    Chris Christie: Chris has been cagey on the subject, but one thing is clear: he ordered his appointee to Frank Lautenberg's Senate seat to vote for Marco Rubio's amnesty bill.

    Rick Perry: Rick Perry is tough on illegal immigrants! He sent a handful of national guard troops to the border! (With orders not to arrest any illegals.) But as for those illegals who manage to slip through this imposing gauntlet, Perry rewards them with taxpayer-subsidized college educations. If he's paying for illegals to go to college, I think it's safe to say he supports amnesty.

    Mike Huckabee: Wikipedia says it much better than I:

    In February 2007, Huckabee had stated, "We shouldn't have amnesty where we just say, "Fine, everybody's good, we're going to let it go." We should have a process where people can pay the penalties, step up and accept responsibility for not being here legally. But here's the point. The objective is not to be punitive. The objective is to make things right. Right for us. Right for them." Huckabee said it's irrational to deport twelve million people and supported a pathway to citizenship,

    I don't know why, but for some reason Huckabee reminds me of Porky Pig's "fat friar" character from the Daffy Duck cartoons.

    Scott Walker: Scott Walker backed the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill in 2006. But that was nine years ago! Perhaps his position has evolved now. Okay, here's what he said in 2013, less than two years ago:

    He went as far as to tell POLITICO in 2013 that he supported a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants provided “people who are in line right now have first preference.”

    Scott Walker may be good on many things, but he supports amnesty. Period. It's a shame, because he has really good hair.

    Rand Paul: Rand Paul claims he's against amnesty, but he voted for an amendment to give 2 million "temporary" visas to illegal aliens annually...who could then apply for citizenship. It looks like amnesty to me. Unless you're an illegal, in prison, or a drug addict, I can't see why you'd vote for Rand. What bothers me is his duplicity about it, his effort to have it both ways. At least Jeb has the guts to be honest about what he is.

    Ted Cruz: Ted Cruz is the only major candidate who has never supported or endorsed amnesty.

    End Obama's illegal amnesty via Congress' checks & balances. (Nov 2014)
    Defund amnesty, and refuse any nominees until rescinded. (Nov 2014)
    No path to citizenship for 1.65 million illegals in Texas. (Oct 2012)
    Give police more power to ask about immigration status. (Jun 2012)
    Boots on the ground, plus a wall. (Apr 2012)
    Triple the size of the Border Patrol. (Mar 2012)
    Strengthen border security and increase enforcement. (Jul 2011)


    He's resolute, he's firm, he's good on most of the other issues, and he has Spanishy good looks. What more could you want?

    So if illegal immigration is important to you, you should vote for Ted Cruz but also support Marco Rubio.

    To my knowledge Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, and Bobby Jindal do not support amnesty. As for Scott Walker, we'll have to see how his campaign plays out since he is now saying he has evolved on the issue and has had a change of heart. I know, for good reason, many opponents of illegal immigration want to dismiss Walker because of his previous position. Well, I've decided to take a wait and see attitude on him. Yep, I'll see how well he does at convincing me on the campaign trail. I suppose it is not out of the realm of possibility that he has in fact changed his mind after learning more on the issue ........ we'll see.

    Right now, I think Ted Cruz is the strongest anti-illegal immigration candidate. He is also a Senate co-sponsor of the FairTax legislation which in the Senate is S 155, and HR 25 in the US House of Representatives. As many of you know, I am a true, dedicated, and committed supporter of HR 25 in the US House of Representatives and S 155 in the US Senate for so many reasons, one of which is that it creates a strong and important comparative advantage for American Workers who are citizens or legal permanent residents through the Rebate, to cover FairTaxes on essentials up to the Household Consumption Allowance, and specifically excludes by statute illegal aliens and non-citizens who do not have permanent resident status.

    This one feature restores the well-being and competitive abilities of American workers against illegal aliens and temporary status aliens, because illegal aliens won't have the rebate and can't undercut American workers to the extent they do now. And by eliminating the income tax and all its evil wickedness, the FairTax ends tax credit welfare for illegal aliens. Also, the Social Security Administration, not the US Treasury Department, disperses the Rebates, and only does that for people with valid Social Security numbers who have been vetted and verified by the Social Security Administration. No Clinton created IRS "TINS" allowed.

    I think he would have been more grammatically correct had he said "if the issue of illegal alien amnesty....." But you are right, written it is sit says what you asked.

    Yes, he did. I saw that and couldn't figure that one out. I started to put a like on the article, but that stopped me. He says vote for Cruz but also support Marco Rubio. What??!! Ruined his whole article.

    The difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien is the equivalent of the difference between a burglar and a houseguest. Join our efforts to Secure America's Borders and End Illegal Immigration by Joining ALIPAC's E-Mail Alerts network (CLICK HERE)
