Some House Republicans, including Rep. Michele Bachmann, are reportedly planning to block immigration reform legislation when it reaches the House.
Bachmann recently spoke to the conspiracy website WorldNetDaily about how immigration reform would destroy the Republican party and give Democrats a permanent majority in the Senate, House and White House, which is supposedly President Barack Obama's "number one political agenda" (video below).
The short message strongly implied that nonwhite immigrants will not vote for Republicans so they should not be allowed into the country or granted citizenship.
"We're going have amnesty, perpetual amnesty for illegal immigration and the whole political system will change," Bachmann said, notes RightWingWatch.org. "This is President Obama's number one political agenda item because he knows we will never again have a Republican president, ever, if amnesty goes into effect. We will perpetually have a liberal progressive president, probably a Democrat."
She added: "We will probably see the House of Representatives go into Democrat hands and the Senate will stay in Democrat hands. You will have a permanent progressive liberal Democrat class and you will never again see our country return to its constitutional foundations."
She did not mention that President Ronald Reagan signed an immigration bill, which naturalized millions of illegal immigrants, but Republicans won the White House twice thereafter.
