Spencer Abraham won’t go away. His name turned up on a Big Business GOP donor letter pressuring the House Republicans to cave on illegal alien amnesty. Joining Abraham? The usual open-borders suspects: former Bush commerce secretary Carlos Gutierrez, amnesty cheerleader Karl Rove, soft-on-enforcement former DHS secretary Tom Ridge, and other statist elites who put cheap illegal alien labor above homeland security, the Constitution, and the rule of law.

I want to remind you of what Spencer Abraham was doing in the Senate in the years and months leading up to the 9/11 jihad attacks.

I repeat:

In my 2002 book Invasion (p. 71, 76), I noted the open-borders obstructionism of former Sen. Spencer Abraham (R-Michigan), who fought to block the implementation of two different tracking databases–one for foreign student visa holders and the other for all temporary visitors (which was mandated by Section 110 of the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act).

Abraham led efforts to starve the first database of funding and crusaded several times to kill Section 110 altogether. On September 11, 2001, neither of those databases was in place. To this day, they remain incomplete.

Yes, the same amnesty-peddlers who blocked basic tracking databases and enforcement that have been promised and sabotaged and promised over and over and over again support the Gang of Eight charade fronted by fool tool Marco Rubio, who promises to implement the databases his patrons have prevented from establishing for 13 years.

Even more troubling, Beltway lobbyist Abraham has been a willing panderer to Islamist interests.

Now, he’s leading the establishment effort to “save” the GOP. By destroying it.

I’m bringing back one of this blog’s most used symbols…the upside-down elephant.
