Schlafly: Obama, Friends Use Immigration to Beat Conservatives

By    |   Monday, 27 Apr 2015 09:57 PM

A huge surge of immigrants expected in the coming decades — as many as 78 million by 2060, according to the Census Bureau — is no accident, says Phyllis Schlafly.

The fault lies with President Barack Obama, she says.

"It's deliberate," Schlafly told WND.com on Monday.

"It's not any accident. It's because Obama and his friends are letting all these people in who don't want to be Americans, who don't want to speak English."

According to the conservative Center for Immigration Studies, the nation's immigrant population, legal and illegal, will total a record 51 million in 2023, when one in seven U.S. residents will be an immigrant. By 2060, nearly one in five U.S. residents will be an immigrant.

Conservative activist and author Richard Viguerie told WND the surge will "pull America to the left, for sure," noting that most immigrants today come from nations more politically and culturally liberal than the United States.

"I think one of the reasons Obama and his friends are so eager to open the gates to more and more immigrants is they think it's going to defeat the conservative movement and the Republican Party," Schlafly told WND.

"Of course, they all come from countries that are not used to the idea of limited government. They're used to countries where the government makes all the decisions, and they don't know anything different.

"They don't understand what Americans mean when we talk about limited government, so I think one of their motives clearly is death to the conservative movement and the Republican Party."

Viguerie worries the influx may already be putting the GOP on a course to "self-destruct."

"The Republican Party, if it were to nominate a pro-amnesty candidate, would self-destruct and not be able to politically survive having a political candidate that is pro-amnesty," Viguerie told WND.

"It would just drive a stake in the hearts of the grass-roots Republican voters," he said, "and there would be almost no chance the Republican nominee could win the election."

WND reported that Schlafly likes GOP presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's anti-illegal immigration stand, and praises Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's position on legal immigration.

But there's too much opposition from the mainstream GOP and "big business," she said.

"The powers-that-be, the propagandists, big media, and the big donors in the Republican Party are all pushing this massive immigration, she said. "And of course, that's the view of big business — they want the cheap labor," she told WND.

The Census Bureau projects that the U.S. immigrant population will grow nearly four times faster than the native population. It will reach 15.8 percent by 2030 and 18.8 percent by 2060, at which time there will be 78 million immigrants in the country. By contrast, there were only 20 million immigrants in the U.S. in 1990, accounting for 7.9 percent of the population.

"We may be at a breaking point already, I don't know," Schlafly told WND, adding that most Americans agree with her.

"I think the public opinion polls are showing that the majority of Americans agree with the views that I've been expressing," Schlafly contended. "However, major media doesn't put it out that way."

According to a Gallup poll in June 2014, 41 percent of Americans thought current immigration levels should be decreased.
