GOP LAWMAKERS GUTLESS ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION - MARK LEVIN AT CPAC

Former Department of Justice chief of staff in the Reagan administration, who is now a nationally syndicated conservative talk host, Mark Levin, during his address to the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) gathering on Saturday, blasted Republican lawmakers. He told the crowd of conservatives and libertarians that the Republicans in both houses of the U.S. Congress show the nation that they have "no principles, no strategy and no guts" on immigration, according to reporters covering the event.

Speaking to a cheering crowd, the popular radio host and public-interest attorney said, as he has often done in the past, that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, is "one of the most despicable, dumbest men to ever be the [Majority and Minority] Leader in the Senate, but Reid is running circles around the Republicans."

"That's what happens when you have no principles, no strategy and no guts," Levin said of Congressional Republicans. "It's time for a new Republican Party. No more excuses. No more whining. No more lying to get you elected. No more crony deals with the U.S. Chamber of crony capitalism," Levin said. Levin was referring to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which claims to be conservative but supports amnesty for illegal aliens who they view as cheap labor.

A legal scholar who is an unabashed "Reagan Conservative," Levin voiced his total opposition to having Jeb Bush as the GOP's nominee for President in an election in which he'll most probably face Hillary Clinton and her political-media machine. "Levin is absolutely right. Any GOP candidate for President must not only outmaneuver the Democratic Party, its non-profit groups and its technical savvy, but they must also deal with a news media that is set to characterize the Republican candidate in a bad light while all but covering up the Democrat's dirty laundry," said political consultant Mike Baker.

During his CPAC appearance, Levin said, "We are not a nation of immigrants. We are a nation of citizens. I am sick and tired of American citizens being demeaned and treated as a second-class citizen while anybody who crosses the border is treated as the most virtuous human being on the face of the earth."

According to Mike Baker, a perfect example of the current topsy-turvey treatment of citizens is currently taking place in New York City under another far-left Democrat, Mayor Bill de Blasio. Under his new plan, illegal aliens will get free admission to museums, cultural institutions and other establishments, while citizens will continue to pay admission fees. He is also handing out photo ID cards to "undocumented immigrants" without any background checks. "If they're undocumented, how can you be sure they are who they say they are?" asked Baker.

Levin also alleged that there are some aspiring presidential nominees who have called "us lazy and racist and [they] themselves reject the belief of American exceptionalism." He warned the CPAC crowd that these politicians are "insisting that the nation owes its current and future greatness, if not existence, to uninterrupted massive waves of low-skilled and unskilled aliens from third-world [countries]."

Top Republicans, both inside and outside politics, are saying that the current crop of presidential candidates need to sound more inclusive when debating immigration reform, noting that Latinos are important if the GOP wants to win future elections. But conservatives such as Levin, Laura Ingraham -- also a former attorney for the U.S. government -- and others believe the conservative message, once it is heard from immigrants will win them over.

"Many of these immigrants come from oppressive or socialist countries run by corrupt brutes. One they can understand the language and discern how the Democrats actually enslave voters, they'll drop them like a hot potato," said former big-city police detective now a political consultant, Benny Carzona. "Do you see the majority of Cubans who vote Republican and loved Ronald Reagan? That can be achieved with Latinos from other nations as well," he added.

On the day before the long-anticipated CPAC gathering During a televised town hall event President Barack Obama made certain to threaten the majority of men and women who are members of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement about enforcing immigration laws which he changed by executive fiat. And he did it without any public outcry or backlash from the GOP. But Levin was infuriated with law enforcement being depicted once again by Obama as the enemy.

During the well-controlled MSNBC town hall meeting hosted by Jose Diaz-Balart, the former community organizer and adjunct law professor, warned the special agents and officers with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Border Patrol (CBP) and the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) : implement the Obama executive amnesty, or else.

He made the comments in a television event that was decidedly pro-illegal immigration on the most liberal-left news organization in the nation. Counted among MSNBC's personalities are the Rev. Al Sharpton, vitriolic Ed Schultz, and Rachel Maddow so critics of the President are safe in assuming Obama received softball questions and audience support.

For example, when President Obama was asked for reassurances that people wouldn't be deported as the legal battle over the executive amnesty plays out in the courts, he said, “Until we pass a law through Congress, the executive actions we’ve taken are not going to be permanent; they are temporary."

But then Obama went further: "There are going to be some jurisdictions and there may be individual ICE official or Border Control agent not paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of Homeland Security [Jeh Johnson] because he’s been very clear about what our priorities will be.“

"Not only are we going to have to win this legal fight.. but ultimately we’re still going to pass a law through Congress. The bottom line is I’m using all the legal power invested in me in order to solve this problem,” he vowed. “If somebody’s working for ICE … and they don’t follow the policy, there’s going to be consequences to it.”

A report released this month by the public-interest group Judicial Watch accused the Obama administration of ordering members of the Customs and Border Security bureau to cease arresting drunk drivers. Judicial Watch pointed to an internal government memo that also concedes an officer who elects to not detain them is “acting within the course and scope of his employment.”

One of the first media personalities to respond to Obama's town hall meeting and threats against law enforcement officers was talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh. He said during his Thursday show: "Now, there will be consequences for ICE officers who do not obey his illegal executive order. There will be consequences. There will be blood. But there will not be consequences for the millions of illegals who have violated the law for years and entered the country. No, no, no. We're gonna ignore that. Prosecutorial discretion. We're gonna just choose to ignore the law."
