Tea Party Influence

Thinkprogress, a left wing website, notes that the tea party is not all free markets and individual rights:
The Deseret News also notes that, as recently as this past summer, Hatch was singing a much different tune. On July 7, the senator expressed his support of the DREAM Act at a town hall meeting, saying, "A lot of these kids are brought in as infants. They don’t even know that they’re not citizens until they graduate from high school. … If they’ve lived good lives and they’ve done good things, why would we penalize them and not let them at least go to school?"
Hatch now claims his remarks were taken out of context.
Hatch’s flip-flop may have something to do with the fact that he’s up for reelection in 2012 and has already been identified as the tea party’s next target.
You can bet that the Tea Party's opposition to open immigration is the result of deceptive "facts" from racist organizations like NumbersUSA, Center for Immigration Studies and FAIR. Be sure to let your local Tea Party activists know the origins of the "facts" they are pushing, particularly if they have bought into FAIR, Center for Immigration Studies and NumbersUSA propaganda!
