WATCH (and READ): Ad Attacking McCain's Immigration Reform Stance, Based On Population Control Of "Aliens" (Legal and Illegal) (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

Arrived back in Arizona last night just in time to catch the tail end of a provocative ad on the late news, targeting Arizona Senator John McCain's immigration reform position.  I was not able to look it up until this morning, and here is what I found.

(The video and audio text of the ad is below.)

The issue advocacy ad is sponsored by the well-established Californians for Population Stabilization group, which has been attacking the immigration debate from the population control angle since 1986.  (They claim they split off from the Zero Population Growth organization because the latter was focusing on "politically safer" aspects.) They caused a minor burst of attention during the 2012 GOP primary Presidential debates when they ran an ad attacking illegal and legal immigration, and they advocate for population control by "promoting replacement-level fertility and replacement-level immigration." (I'm not sure of the logic of the latter, even.)

Now, they are crossing state borders to try to rally opposition to the immigration reform plans being formulated by Arizona's Senators (and six other Senators from both parties and other states).  Using the provocative words "amnesty" and "illegal aliens", and hitting the emotional issues of jobs and Social Security benefits, the ad aims straight at the audience that most of the Republican party had been wooing before the 2012 elections.

The ad is running on the ABC, NBC and CBS network affiliates in Phoenix:
 Californians for Population Stabilization receives an average of $1.2 million in funding each year from various individuals, and is promising to run similar ads in other markets.   

Audio Text (transcribed by Arizona's Politics):  This is an S.O.S. from the people in California to our neighbors in Arizona.  Save our states.  Your Senator, John McCain, wants to bring in millions more immigrant workers to take our jobs.  He wants more green cards, and amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, giving access to Social Security benefits paid for by all of us.  Call Senator McCain now, at 602-952-2410.  Tell him to stop his mass immigration amnesty plan.  Paid for by Californians for Population Stabilization.

Im very much in favor of the ads opposing amnesty for illegal aliens.

amnesty is bad for the country and bad for the republican party.

americans do not support amnesty, and in fact support deportation, yet pandering politicians keep pushing it on us.

"Majority of U.S. citizens say illegal immigrants should be deported"

"(Reuters) - More than half of U.S. citizens believe that most or all of the country's 11 million illegal immigrants should be deported, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday"

" Only 5 percent believe all illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the United States legally, and 31 percent want most illegal immigrants to stay."

"These results are in line with other polls in recent years, suggesting that people's views on immigration have not changed dramatically since the immigration debate reignited in Congress last month, according to Ipsos pollster Julia Clark."

now we have the amnesty rinos and the libs at it again, talking "comprehensive (amnesty) immigration reform" when THEY KNOW THERE NEVER HAS BEEN AND NEVER WILL BE ANY ENFORCEMENT.

nothing but pandering traitors.

im kind of surprised mccain and the rest of the amnesty rinos rubio,flake, paul, graham etc.... have not yet praised oblamer for releasing tons of illegals "due to the sequester" for taking this vital first step in "comprehensive "immigration" reform"

the majority of all americans (except for the political class) are fervently against illegal immigration and amnesty.

establishment elites love illegal workers and amnesty because it provides low wages for everybody, democrats like it because they get more voters. really no difference in establishment republicans and democrats. its all just an effort to maintain the sataus quo for republican AND democrat elites.

im so tired of rinos and libs saying "we cant do anything about illegals but give them amnesty" baloney, WE HAVE NEVER TRIED, and it would be fairly simple, it just might take awhile:
federal prosecution of, and loss of all federal funding to "sanctuary cities", national mandatory e verify for employment, school, medical care, housing, utilities, banking, govt services and programs, and close the border. anybody ever caught here illegally is never allowed back for any reason.simple, just make take a few years, but heck the problems been building for over 25 so a couple more years is not too big of a problem.

"Despite the best of intentions, Republican proponents of amnesty made more acceptable by promises of border security today will see only half of the deal implemented, the amnesty part.

Except this time the risk is existential for the Republican Party. The Democrats know most of these 14 million new citizens will be voting for Democrats. The irony will be that the Republican rush to compromise with the lawless may mean the end of the GOP’s long-term electoral relevance."

this applies to democrats too

americans dont want it. quit pushing it on us.

call us racist or xenophobes all you want, please do. i will wear those adjectives with pride as a badge of honor, even though they dont apply. im used to the lefts distortion of language to suit their narrative.

i believe laws should be enforced and that america is a sovereign nation that has an obligation to its citizens to repel illegal foreign invaders aka "illegal immigrants/aliens"

illegal has no race or national origin.
