Jenny Beth Martin in IBD:  Obama Playing ‘Long-Ball’ on Executive Amnesty

The breadth, intensity and uniformity of opposition to amnesty is striking and suggests that support for it is anathema to any political party or politician on the ballot this November. Yet in spite of overwhelming antipathy on the issue, we continue hearing that Obama is prepared to take unilateral action despite all indications of great political risk. … But would Obama actually sacrifice the prospects of the Democratic Party on the altar of amnesty? Absolutely. It's called Long Ball — focusing on the long-term impact of something rather than the immediate or near-term consequences.

The prospective immigrant beneficiaries of Obama's executive amnesty are not engineers from India with graduate degrees. They are predominantly low-education, low-skill people who broke the law to enter the U.S. They are prime candidates for expanding the American welfare state and are guaranteed to vote Democrat in vast numbers. And yes, they will vote; only the naive believe otherwise.

This is your must-read column of the day and a great interview for your illegal immigration coverage!
