IT WOULD BE EASIER TO OUTLINE WHAT THEY’VE GOTTEN RIGHT: The RNC’s 2012 Autopsy Was Wrong. “The RNC report’s advocacy for a path to citizenship was a slap in the face to those Republicans who had long been angry about illegal immigration. Businesses big and small made the decision to employ illegal immigrants in violation of the law. A generation of Washington politicians responded with a tacit shrug, even after 9/11. That same generation of politicians, running a government infrastructure capable of reading all of our e-mails and vacuuming up the metadata from all of our cell phones, didn’t seem to care that millions of visitors had overstayed their visas and disappeared from the system. Local governments that will nail you for an expired parking meter announced they were ‘sanctuary cities’ and would no longer cooperate with federal efforts to deport those here illegally. And Immigration and Customs Enforcement, charged with leading those efforts, botched its most basic duties.”

And that disregard for the rule of law, and poisonously obvious desire to dissolve the people and elect another, is what’s creating the anger.
