American Cause -- Getting Rid of the Immigrants
A group of Republicans, doing a post-mortem of the last election, argued that the party lost not because of its hostility to immigrants, but rather because it was too soft on them. Now the rallying cry for the the GOP's resurrection should be higher fences, more deportations to drive the immigrant out. The New York Times in an editorial equates this attitude to racism and argues this strategy is doom to keeping the party a perpetual minority. This group is organizing itself as "the American Cause" and, from the writings of its proponents, that cause is to keep American lily white.
