    Remember when they tried to use them as props during the Obamcare votes, and it totally backfired? That's where they are today.
    That is why we must fight amnesty, and we can get the black members of Congress on our side by the fact it will destroy their position and job security it is a win/win for us..

    not relevant, not needed....

    there's no good reason to have a caucus based on skin color...

    based on ideas , ideology, beliefs,... sure.... skin color?... nope.

    I don't know if they can be persuaded to vote in their group interest on this one. With a black man in the White House, it seems like none of them want to make black unemployment a political issue, fearing he'd be blamed. If it were a white republican? They might be on board. It'll be interesting to see when the 2016 race shapes that dynamic. Perhaps conservatives can reach out to them arguing that it would let them shape the primary race in their party.

    No - but Jeff Sessions might. He's been pointing out that mass low-skill low-wage immigration hurts our low-wage high-unemployment workforce for some time.

    Perhaps blacks should team up with hispanics, instead of allowing themselves to be played against one another.

    Martin Luther King Jr invoked in amnesty fight



    ...The ad is the latest anti-Obama move by his critics of immigration reform and follows recent polls showing that African-Americans and other minorities worry that illegals are taking jobs, housing and healthcare they should get....

    ]The group’s spokesman, Joe Guzzardi, said, “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. promoted equal treatment for all Americans. But President Obama is putting the interests of immigrant workers ahead of American workers who want jobs.”

    He added, “the president’s policies are disproportionately harming the most vulnerable American workers who, more often than not, are minority Americans....



    Myself I think it's a bit... heavy handed.

    Inasmuch as the two are coherent groups that have group interests, they are trapped in a zero sum game. Bringing in large numbers of low-skill, low-education hispanics means that our black populace will continue to face high (in some cases, stratospheric) unemployment. From a coalitional standpoint, they have little to offer each other.
