Republicans are beginning to rethink their hardline position on immigration in light of their devastating election losses.
Right-wing religious figures, such as Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association, do not agree. As reported by Right Wing Watch, last week Fischer said that “America never had a problem with immigration when the bulk of the immigrants came from Europe because they shared our heritage, values, and worldview. But recently, most immigration has been coming from non-European third-world countries where people do not possess the Protestant Work Ethic and expect the government to take care of them.”
In fact, said Fischer, Hispanics do not vote Democratic because of the issue of immigration but rather because “they are socialists by nature” who want open borders simply so that they can bring in their families to “benefit from the plunder of the wealth of the United States.”
