I know you’ll be shocked and surprised that Obama has decided to tie amnesty for illegals to The War On Women ™.
Even though the Violence Against Women Act, which was enacted in 1994, included provisions to protect illegal women, of course that isn’t enough if you can push the envelope to attack Republicans and cow them into voting to include amnesty for 12M (+/-) undocumented Democrats in the electoral mix.
An Obama mouthpiece tries out this “logic” as to why amnesty is still so important for illegals:
…a fear of deportation, potential homelessness and economic dependence as reasons many immigrant women—documented and undocumented—do not seek help.”
I’m tempted to add that if these women are so afraid of life in the USA maybe they would be more comfortable in their home countries—which don’t have VAWA.
Every Republican running for office needs a strategy to counter this War On Women b.s. that worked so well for Obama in ’12 and that every Democrat out there will be using as a playbook in ’14.
