Republican voters in North Carolina’s Second District will choose today between incumbent Renee Ellmers and conservative challenger/Tea Party favorite Frank Roche.

Polls are open until 7:00 p.m. this evening.

Ellmers is a favorite of House GOP leader John Boehner, and she has been exposed as a vocal advocate of amnesty despite attempting several times during her campaign to conceal her position from her constituency. To review:

WHAT? Renee Ellmers Claims She Has ‘Same Immigration Stance as Cruz, Paul, Lee’

All-In on Amnesty: Renee Ellmers Is Boehner and Cantor’s ‘Tell’

Her measured statements on amnesty mirror the concealed, ambiguous remarks from Boehner and Eric Cantor. The surreptitious politicking is most galling to me as a U.S. citizen, more so than the position itself: when your elected public servants don’t wish you to know how they intend to govern, you can be sure they intend to disregard you.

At such a point, you bear the responsibility for selecting a new individual with whom to place your sacred trust.

Frank Roche, in addition to holding a rational, disinterested opinion on amnesty — the “rule of law”-based position that, as opposed to popular culture’s lazy usage of the word with folks such as Sandra Fluke, actually does require courage to hold — has been crystal clear with his constituents regarding where he stands.

Says Roche:

I’m looking for something quite different than what we’ve experienced over the last four decades. And I’m not only talking about illegal immigration. We of course have to stop this once and for all by properly securing our borders, getting a handle on our short-term visa program, and, of course, dealing with those who are here illegally — which would not include amnesty, or anything like amnesty, or “path to citizenship,” or any other semantic twist of phrase they want to use.

These are tough stances to take these days without being labeled a bigot, a “nativist,” even by fellow Republicans.

So recall that the actual implication of Ellmers’ stance on immigration is a drastic drop in wages, a severe economic blow to the past couple decades’ worth of legal immigrants who did everything right and have been pulling their families towards a more secure future. “Nativist” is a disgraceful term to throw at those defending that generation of recently arrived Americans.

If Ellmers survives, expect GOP House leadership to be emboldened and to press on for amnesty after primary season.

Take that thought with you to the polls today, NC-02.

The Dirty Little "Secret": The reason that politician supporters of "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" want it is so that they and/or their campaign contributors (Chamber of Commerce Gang) can have serf labor. They would probably prefer actual out-and-out slaves but that is illegal. "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" Democrats, like Obama, also want it so that those who are now illegal can become legal and vote for them, if they aren't voting for them already.

Does anyone think that any of these "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" politicians actually care one wit otherwise for the illegals. Does anyone think that any of the "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" politicians are going to invite these Mexican Indios and Mezclados to join their elite/exclusive golf clubs? Come to live in their gated communities, other than as low paid servants? Invite them to their yachts, other than as low paid deck hands and/or servants? Invite them to their cocktail parties? Introduce them to their daughters?

The big majority of the Mexicans who have come here/will come here are Indios and Mezclados, not the Spanish descendant fair-skinned ruling class of Mexico. This is a form of ethnic cleansing by Mexico's ruling class. So these "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" politicians are aiding and abetting and facilitating mass ethnic cleansing. If the U.N. were not such a joke, they would all be standing trial for trying to reintroduce a form of latter-day-slavery in the United States and for the mass ethnic cleansing of Mexico.

Another nail in the coffin of declaring immigration reform off limits for polite discussion in the Republican Party.

EY. Obama !!!!!!!!
I’m planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.
We’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements.
We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.
I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, The President of Mexico, that I’m on my way over?
Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:
1. Free medical care for my entire family.
2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.
3. Please print all Mexican Government forms in English.
4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers.
5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.
6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school.
7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch.
8. I will need a local Mexican driver’s license so I can get easy access to government services.
9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but I don’t plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won’t make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.
10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.
11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my housetop, put U.S. flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.
12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.
13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.
14. I want to receive free food stamps.
15. Naturally, I’ll expect free rent subsidies.
16. I’ll need income tax credits so that although I don’t pay Mexican taxes, I’ll receive money from the government.
17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays $4,500.00 to help me buy a new car.
18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I’ll get a monthly income in retirement.
I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U.S. from Mexico. I am sure that the President of Mexico won’t mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.
Look how stupid this looks when you put it in writing !!!
