It`s becoming obvious that criticism of the Obama-Rubio Amnesty is simply being suppressed by the MSM, so here`s one you may otherwise have missed.

Congressman Lou Barletta was quoted in a Pennsylvania paper demolishing the idea (with the paper credulously repeats) that amnesty might help the GOP:

I hope politics is not at the root of why we`re rushing to pass a bill. Anyone who believes that they`re going to win over the Latino vote is grossly mistaken," Barletta said. "The majority that are here illegally are low-skilled or may not even have a high school diploma. The Republican Party is not going to compete over who can give more social programs out. They will become Democrats because of the social programs they`ll depend on."[Congressman Lou Barletta opposes emerging immigration plan | Former Hazleton mayor rejects U.S. Senate proposal as unwarranted `amnesty.`, By Colby Itkowitz, Lehigh Valley Morning Call, January 28, 2013]
