Greg Letiecq (Black Velvet Bruce Li)  has done citizens a great service with his post here “Ed Gillespie’s Opening Salvo For Open Borders.” 

Publisher Letiecq includes a YouTube here entitled “Shaun Kenney hosts Amnesty lobby 2 days after becoming RPV Executive Director.”

Concludes Letiecq here

“Make no mistake here, folks.  This was not some sort of last-minute, unannounced visit by the hyper-leftists who showed up and filmed with a covert camera.  This was a scheduled meeting, blessed by Ed Gillespie and the other establishment types pulling the strings at RPV in hopes they could convert the Republican Party of Virginia into a mindless let’s-destroy-America open-borders advocacy group.” (Highlighting Forum’s.)

Not that anyone should have been surprised by the good Mr. Gillespie’s immigration position.

As we wrote last January 23 in our “Ed Gillespie: Would A Beltway Insider Be A Strong Voice For You?here

“Ed Gillespie has a long history of pushing immigration expansion.”

On February 17, 2009 we pointed to the favorite policy flavors here (scroll to bottom) of now-current-Senate hopeful Gillespie–

“He has a record of helping hike taxes [scroll to bottom]in Virginia, he has a strong record in behalf of more open immigration [scroll to bottom] and he is, according to the Manchester Union Leader, on record in behalf of larger government.

NRO editor-at-large John O’Sullivan last July 30 spelled out here the fundamental issue on Big Immigration in his “What about the Workers?”–

“In a letter to fellow-Republicans on the Hill today, Senator Jeff Sessions declares with admirable straightforwardness that the GOP establishment’s main argument for the Gang of Eight immigration bill — that ‘the great lesson of the 2012 election is that the GOP needs to push for immediate amnesty and a drastic surge in low-skill immigration’ — is quite simply ‘nonsense.’ He is, of course, correct. That is true, moreover, of every other argument advanced in favor of the bill by the Gang of Eight and the GOP establishment. All these arguments have been investigated to death, generally by Mark Krikorian on these pages, but also by a wide range of critics elsewhere, notably Mickey Kaus. I can’t think of a single one that has survived its vivisection — no, vivisection is performed on living things; the correct term for examining these arguments is post mortem. . . .  And as Mickey Kaus points out, its organizer, former Bush II commerce secretary Carlos Guterriez, more or less admits that this is a struggle between Republican donors and Republican voters. In fact it’s worse than that. This struggle pits a political coalition of the Republican and Democrat establishments versus blue-collar workers in both parties and of all ethnicities. And the electoral realities of such a struggle don’t favor the establishments.” (Highlighting Forum’s.)

Why would any conservative want to give money to a Republican Party of Virginia while it remains under the domination of Big Immigration overlords?
