Last June, I noted the mortifying open-borders debacle in the California Republican Party. Michael Kamburowski, an Australian immigrant who served as the California Republican Partyâ€™s chief operating officer, resigned last summer after the SFChron reported that he had been â€?ordered deported in 2001, jailed in connection with the order, and [had a] $5 million wrongful arrest lawsuit pending against U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials.â€? Clueless GOP officials put Kamburowski in charge of the multimillion-dollar budget of the nationâ€™s largest state Republican Party.I hadn't heard about that—I know the EEOC persecutes you if you ask a Mexican to prove it's legal for him to work, [See Indiscriminate Anti-Discrimination Enforcement: Why Is It Illegal To Check For Illegals?]but what about a white guy who says "G'day, mate" and similar comments? Couldn't the sort of tell he was foreign? And Michelle Malkin points to the other Republican connection with this guy: Grover Norquist.
A former California Republican Party official who resigned last year in a controversy over his immigration status had no valid visa or work permit during his high-profile career as a Washington lobbyist for conservative icon Grover Norquist, newly filed court records show.Why am I not surprised that Grover Norquist was employing an illegal alien? I'll tell you why I'm not surprised—years of VDARE.com coverage of Norquist:
Michael Kamburowski, an Australian citizen who served briefly as chief operating officer of the state GOP, worked from 1995 to 2000 as a vice president of Americans for Tax Reform in Washington, D.C., an organization headed by Norquist - an architect of modern conservatism who has advised President Bush and top GOP political leaders.
