Republicans must position themselves ahead of the issue now.

An immigration bill, working its way through the United States Senate, is designed to be a party-killer to Republicans. According to estimates, the bill would attract an additional 33 million immigrants into the United States, many who would owe their immigration, and initial political allegiance, to the Democrats.

Obama is a master of misdirection, the secret of any good deception.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The immigration bill authored by the so-called "Gang of Eight" is 844 pages long and would open the floodgates to permit millions more people, as many as 33 million, to enter the country. It would also provide a path to amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.

Republicans have asked for more time to study the bill.

It's becoming increasingly obvious that the Hispanic vote is the critical swing vote that decides elections. Hispanics are also the largest supporters of immigration reform and amnesty, as they are the largest immigrant group in the United States, by far.

If Democrats manage to win amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants, who can be converted into voters, they will win a powerful voting bloc that is large enough to decide elections. Such a sweeping move would be an enormous windfall for the Democrats and fatal to the Republicans who generally favor upholding existing laws and defending our borders.

Unfortunately, the Democrats and Republicans are engaged in a mass deception of the American people. Issues such as Obamacare, unemployment, welfare programs, the sequester, and more, have distracted Americans from the largest political power play in recent history. There are so many crises manufactured by the Obama administration that it's difficult to tell which threats are real and require attention, and which ones are the red herrings.

Not only Obama and his administration, but the entire Washington DC political system in America are unrivaled masters of deception.

No issue is as politically profitable for the Democrats - and so politically devastating for Republicans, as an immigration reform that awards amnesty to those whose first act in this country was literally a crime.

Illegal immigration is a significant burden on the economy. Although proponents are quick to point out that illegal immigrants "take jobs that nobody wants" they are slow to accept that those jobs are looking increasingly attractive to the millions of chronically under and unemployed Americans. They also do not admit discussion on the fact that illegal immigrants depress wages and demand the same social services designed to provide a safety net for American citizens.

The Democratic deception scheme is intense. Even the language used by the left is designed to obstruct true meaning. Illegal immigrants are called "undocumented" when they actually carry plenty of forged or stolen documents. They're called "workers" which is a often a true description, however, they take jobs that should go to citizens. Historically, legal citizens have provided much of our labor, even in the dirty jobs. There should be no jobs, no matter how hard or dirty, that are quasi-exclusive to illegal labor.

Even now, as backlash against the influx grows, the language is shifting again. Now, illegal immigrants and their children are dubbed "dreamers."

Why should the dreams of "dreamers" be placed in value above the dreams of citizens who themselves just want to find jobs they can perform at a reasonable wage, not depressed by illegal competition? Why should the dreams of illegal immigrants be of greater value than the dream of taxpayers to see their money spent to care for their fellow citizens who reside here lawfully?

The answer is because the dreamers will get to vote, following amnesty. That's why their interests are suddenly elevated above those of unemployed citizens and those who want living wages paid for a fair day's work.

What are the Republicans to do? The answer is unpalatable, but it's better than being voted out of power - it's to develop an amnesty bill of their own. They must get out ahead of the issue, before the Democrats can cash in.

This is the only solution following decades of failed immigration enforcement. At least if they author the bill, they can retain some influence over the outcome.

The 2012 presidential election was swung in Obama's favor by a small margin. The margins remain tight. Whoever wins the Hispanic vote can win dominance in the government. This is why Obama, leader of the masters of deception, is talking about one crisis after another while distracting from the planned amnesty of millions of illegal immigrants. This is still not to mention the pending influx of 33 million more.

Even if only a fraction of these people vote, it will be more than enough for the Democrats.

Although under a Republican counter-proposal, many of these people would be granted amnesty, the Republicans could guide the process. They could also craft the bill in such as way as to discourage future illegal immigration. A new bill could help secure the borders and manage the influx of legal immigrants, thus making the country safer and raising wages for all.

It simply comes down to who gets it passed first. God help America as Obama and the masters of deception continue their reign.
