Pat Buchanan: Republicans Caving In on Amnesty

By    |   Monday, 08 December 2014 11:16 AM EST

Establishment Republicans are falling in line with the president on executive amnesty because they see a financial incentive in doing so, according to political commentator Pat Buchanan, who was a guest Monday on "America’s Forum" on Newsmax TV.

"They have to wake up to the reality of who really runs the Republican Party and who really controls it," he told host J.D. Hayworth. "The big businesses, the corporate types, the people who make the contributions and the money. They want amnesty for all the businesses that have hired illegals. They want the Republican Party to fight a good fight and then go into the tank on this. That's what the Republican Party is going to do."

It’s ludicrous to suggest that anyone is urging immigration officials to "pick up nannies and deport them across the border," Buchanan said, but "the idea that we're going along with an executive amnesty for 5 million people authorized by the president of the U.S. and the illegal act where the president himself says he will not execute the laws of the U.S. and in violation of law will give benefits to lawbreakers, is a cave-in of the Republican Party."

Absent a "cataclysm," the Republican Party is going to go the way of the Whigs, he added, since "after 2020 it becomes impossible to win the presidency" since immigrants have historically voted Democrat to the tune of 70 percent.

With the proposed spending bill, House Speaker John Boehner is choreographing a "decorous retreat" by the GOP, Buchanan charged.

He also weighed in on race relations under President Obama and his administration, which Buchanan suggested has "demonized" Ferguson, Missouri, where violence and looting broke out after a grand jury voted not to indict a white police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teen who attacked him in August.

"What in heaven's name has Ferguson done to deserve its reputation nationwide and worldwide?" Buchanan asked. "They had one cop in the middle of a Saturday who was accosted by a felon who tried to grab his gun and he shot and killed him, and therefore we are told somehow that Ferguson is representative of racism and this is representative of America?"

Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder are disingenuous in presenting only one side of the issue by suggesting that white police officers are targeting young black males.

"If there is concern among police officers when they encounter young black males, one of the reasons might be the young black males between 16 and 36 are the most violent and criminal community per capita of any in the United States," Buchanan said. "They commit something like one-third of all the crimes, violent crimes in the United States, interracial crime in America is overwhelming black on white rather than the reverse.

"If you go into certain communities, undoubtedly you're more nervous and apprehensive than in other communities. The president refuses to recognize the problems these police face and the apprehensions they face when they're confronting young black males in the community ...  they are suggesting that the problem of violence and lethal violence in America resides primarily in the police forces of the United States, the urban police forces, and primarily among white cops. That is a libel and a slander on America and a libel and a slander on police, and it is contradicted by the FBI statistics on which Mr. Attorney General sits."
