Republicans outraged as Democrats demand amnesty for millions of illegal aliens

Leave a comment

With November midterms hours away, the Democrats appear to be fishing for the Hispanic vote as the House Minority Leader called on President Obama to not only end deportations of illegals, but let their families enter as well.

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, along with Democratic lawmakers Zoe Lofgren and Luis Gutiérrez, wrote an op-ed in Univision, the Spanish-language television website, which called on Obama – in Spanish – to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants under the administration’s“Dream Act” plan.

The three Democrats demanded that families of the unauthorized immigrants on American soil be permitted to qualify for entry into the United States.

“Doing so would not permit family members to skip the line, but it would allow them to wait in line with their family until a visa number becomes available,” the Democratic lawmakers wrote.

In a first, black voter turnout rate passes whites

Leave a comment

America’s blacks voted at a higher rate than other minority groups in 2012 and by most measures surpassed the white turnout for the first time, reflecting a deeply polarized presidential election in which blacks strongly supported Barack Obama while many whites stayed home.

Had people voted last November at the same rates they did in 2004, when black turnout was below its current historic levels, Republican Mitt Romney would have won narrowly,according to an analysis conducted for The Associated Press.

Census data and exit polling show that whites and blacks will remain the two largest racial groups of eligible voters for the next decade. Last year’s heavy black turnout came despite concerns about the effect of new voter-identification laws on minority voting, outweighed by the desire to re-elect the first black president.

William H. Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution, analyzed the 2012 elections for the AP using census data on eligible voters and turnout, along with November’s exit polling. He estimated total votes for Obama and Romney under a scenario where 2012 turnout rates for all racial groups matched those in 2004. Overall, 2012 voter turnout was roughly 58 percent, down from 62 percent in 2008 and 60 percent in 2004.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says President Barack Obama is race-baiting and pandering for the Hispanic vote, while at the same time accusing Republicans of being “bigots.”

“It’s all the time, that we’re race-baiting; it’s all the time, you know, that we’re bigots,” Brewer said on POLITICO LIVE on Monday. Asked directly if she thought the president was race-baiting, Brewer said: “Absolutely, I do. There’s no doubt in my mind.”
