Trump: Illegal Alien Amnesty a “Suicide Mission” for GOP

“You have to be very, very careful, because you could say that to a certain extent the odds aren’t looking so great for Republicans, that you are on a suicide mission,” Donald Trump said. “You are just not going to get those votes.”

Donald Trump said the Republican party will hand Democrats 11 million votes if Congress grants citizenship to illegal aliens, likening the reform efforts to a “suicide mission.”

“The fact is 11 million people will be voting Democratic. You can be out front. You can be the spearhead. You can do whatever you want to do, but everyone of those 11 million people will be voting Democratic. It is just the way it works,” Trump said to applause from the thousands gathered Friday for the American Conservative Union’s 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).


Electoral history as well as recent polling would seem to prove Trump correct.

Much has been made of the 75% Hispanic support enjoyed by Barack Obama in the recent election – support which the media and pro-amnesty groups repeatedly attributed – without evidence – to his support for illegal alien amnesty.

However, in 1986, Ronald Reagan signed the first major amnesty in U.S. history (which Reagan later regretted) – legalizing 3 million illegals. Yet just two years later, in 1988, his V.P. George H.W. Bush received only 30% of the Hispanic vote – just 7% better than Romney, who ran on opposing amnesty and embracing Arizona’s law and mandatory E-Verify. Even John McCain, who WROTE the 2006 McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill, got only 31% of Hispanics in 2012.
