Former Congressman Virgil Goode
of Virginia, whose presence is sorely missed in the House
, has a new column out on the importance of Ann Coulter's Adios America.
Despite debuting at number two on the New York Times bestseller list, Ann Coulter’s latest blockbuster book Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole has received virtually no mainstream media attention outside of Fox News. This is not surprising, as the media does not want to have a real debate about immigration.Instead, they prefer shadowboxing, where Democrats push for amnesty while Republicans quibble about the details. For example, after Obama issued his unilateral and illegal executive amnesty, John Boehner criticized the president for “poison[ing] the well” against “immigration reform moving in this Congress,” as if legislative amnesty were desirable.And virtually no one, including the top Tea Party candidates will discuss legal immigration. Rand Paul said “what we want is more legal immigration” while Ted Cruz believes “we should expand legal immigration.” This is to say nothing about outright amnesty peddlers like Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, and Jeb Bush.Coulter turns this conventional GOP wisdom on its head. She indicts our entire legal immigration system for flooding our country with unskilled workers and often dangerous criminals.[Ann Coulter's Hit New Book Tackles America's Immigration Crisis, Daily Caller, June 22, 2015]
Critically, Goode talks up Coulter's concept of a total immigration moratorium, a position we have taken for some time
. And he points out that the greatest obstacle to a real debate on immigration is the Republican Establishment.
