Articles to Use to Point out Donor Influence on Immigration Policy
If you want to discredit the amnesty-pushers, you need to point out how large donors are trying to buy amnesty. This works best in conjunction with my previous post about wages, so that you can show the motive and then show who is pushing amnesty. This can be useful in three ways; first, as a talking point against conservatives who support amnesty as a way to reach out to Hispanics; you need to point out who is really driving the push for amnesty and what their motives are. Second, you can start pushing talk-show hosts like Howie Carr and Rush Limbaugh to be more critical of Adelson and the Kochs, rather than often defending them because leftists attack them. Third, you can use it to point out to liberals who is pushing for amnesty and why. This is an article about GOP megadonors who are pushing amnesty. Here is another article from Slate mentioning that the Koch brothers are pushing "immigration reform." Similar article from Breitbart. Bloomberg article on Koch Brothers' pro-amnesty leanings. This article deals specifically with McDonald's. Here is a rare instance of Rush Limbaugh calling out GOP megadonors on amnesty. Here's the audio of Limbaugh tearing into the donors. Here are articles about Mike Pence's immigration perfidy: Mike Pence Is No Savior for American Conservatives by One Old Vet Mike Pence's "W" worker visa illegal alien amnesty scheme by 24ahead.com and here is the reason, megadonor Helen Krieble: Coloradan rides into immigration fray by M.E. Sprengelmeyer. I'm making special mention of Carlos Slim: Makes money exploiting poor Mexicans: Article about an anti-Slim protest An old NYTimes article about Slim gouging Mexican phone customers Slim is against US border enforcement, favors increase immigration from Mexico How Slim makes money from mass immigration. Influence on US: Slim 2nd largest owner of New York Times. This article also talks about his monopolistic practices gouging Mexicans. Summary: Carlos Slim profiting from, and provoking, immigration from Mexico to US More on Slim's ulterior motvies An overview of the arguments against Slim. Here are some special mentions of Robert Gittelson, head of "Conservatives for Comprehensive Immigration Reform": This is a puff piece promtoing Gittelson, but it surprisingly lets the cat out of the bag: "For Gittelson, the personal side of immigration reform is also his life’s work. He made his living and built a business in an industry that in Los Angeles has historically been associated with cheap immigrant labor and garment sweatshops. But Gittelson adamantly denies ever having been part of any immigrant exploitation." Yeah, if you can't trust a guy in the rag trade... That is all.
