WHERE'S DAVID DUKE WHEN YOU NEED HIM?:
Immigration Hardliners Upset GOP Candidates Don't Care (Fawn Johnson, April 2, 2011, Hotline)
NumbersUSA, an advocacy group dedicated solely to reducing all immigration in the United States, has a soul-searching question for the Republican presidential hopefuls: Where's the love?
At a conservative conference last week organized by immigration hardliner Rep. Steve King (R), NumbersUSA was shocked to discover that the all of the several possible GOP candidates present (Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, even Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.)) didn't want to talk about immigration.
That leaves NumbersUSA lobbyists scratching their heads. Who to rally behind? "We're not like a lot of organizations. We don't have any other issue," said NumbersUSA President Roy Beck.
Bad enough to be a single issue group in the GOP--such factionalism is fundamentally Democratic--even worse to be a hate group in the Christian party.
