While it is conventional wisdom that one of the reasons the GOP establishment opposes immigration reform is an animus for Hispanics, it was also a reason GOP party officials blamed for the losing Romney campaign.
Months later despite this advice from party elders, Tea Party events featured GOP politicians including Senators Jeff Sessions and Ted Cruz and Congressman Steve King attended a rally promoted by media figure Laura Ingraham and organized by white nationalist named John Tanton who is famous for works such as “The Case for Passive Case Eugenics” and saying that black Americans are a “retrograde species of humanity.”
According to a report by George Zornick of The Nation, Ken Crow who is now affiliated with Tea Party Community, fed the GOP is opposed to immigration reform because they consider Hispanics a lower race narrative saying
” From those incredible blood lines of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington and John Smith. And all these great Americans, Martin Luther King. These great Americans who built this country. You came from them. And the unique thing about being from that part of the world, when you learn about breeding, you learn that you cannot breed Secretariat to a donkey and expect to win the Kentucky Derby. You guys have incredible DNA and don’t forget it."
There is a strain of the White Separatist branch of the GOP that claims that criticizing their racist views racist against whites.
Now Richard Valdemar (Ret.), an International Gang Specialist who has been featured on the website White News Now claiming a growing danger of Muslim Gangs in the U.S. is calling out Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) saying that,
“it's racist for Republicans to support the Immigration Bill to get back in the good graces of immigrants.”
In the video series Citizen s, Taxpayers & Illegal Immigrants produced by The News Behind the News Valdemar states that illegal immigrants from many countries intend to harm the U.S., opening borders to gangs, terrorists, criminals, human trafficking and drugs.
