Sean Hannity’s Stunning Reversal On Immigration, Could It Be To Woo Latino Voters? [Video]

Sean Hannity Tweets His Ballot, Retracts After Realizing He Broke The Law 0

Commentary — As we reported earlier, Sean Hannity — Fox News host and right-wing radio maven — has, two days off what is one of the most stunning political defeats of the past few decades, had a change of heart about immigration reform.

Sean Hannity has been leading the charge on blaming “illegals” for many of America’s ills, so the move he made to embrace a softer stance on the issue of immigration just days after Mitt Romney lost his bid for the White House has been viewed a bit cynically by some who feel the change is an attempt to pander to Latino voters.

And pandering might be a good idea right now. Hannity’s party of choice lost around seven out of 10 votes to incumbent candidate President Barack Obama among Hispanic voters.

Hannity himself expressed disdain just months prior to that happenstance for those who would defend immigrants in America, responding to criticism of his use of the word some consider pejorative — “illegals” — by digging in his heels and saying back in May:

“I’m not stopping it … Illegal immigrant! Illegal!”

Hannity is one of several conservatives who just days before the election had been bleating about the danger of “illegals” in America and now seems to be seeking to perhaps sway legal, voting immigrants over to the platform that has been alienating them for so long.

And while just a few months back Sean Hannity didn’t care if human beings didn’t like being called “illegal,” in the past two days he suddenly realize they are people after all. Nice, very pretty people with the ability to pull a voting lever — he gushes:

” … that is a position that I’ve evolved on. Because you know what—it just—it’s gotta be resolved. The majority of people here—if some people have criminal records you can send ‘em home—but if people are here, law-abiding, participating, four years, their kids are born here … first secure the border, pathway to citizenship … then it’s done. But you can’t let the problem continue. It’s gotta stop.”

Below is a clip of Hannity discussing immigration, “illegals” and terrorists on his show back in 2010. In the clip, he claims there are “millions” of people who “drain” our hospitals, education systems and other services simply by being here, and advocates arresting people simply for being Latino in the US.

Do you think Sean Hannity’s flip-flop is genuine, or an attempt to pad the vote for the GOP in 2016?

    another blow to america live among idiots you just can't comprehend that the illegas are bringing america down. look at our prison filled with look at the violent crimes illegal why the hospital are going broke illegals why the welfare system is broke. 40% of all workers in Los Angeles County (Los Angeles County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal aliens working without a green card.

    2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

    3. 75% of people on the most-wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

    4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

    5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.

    6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

    7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

    8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

    9. 21 radio stations in Los Angeles are Spanish speaking.

    10. In Los Angeles County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.
    (There are 10.2 million people in Los Angeles County.)

    (All 10 of the above statements are from the Los Angeles Times).

    Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.
    Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York ) results from immigration.
    29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

    We are a bunch of fools for letting this continue.

    The great thing about 2012 Reptilians is they just don't get it and perhaps……..they never will.

    Tides in…….and you're out!

    This guy who's commenting on illegals with a name like "Carlos" is most likely a bitter offspring of mexicans. and that's where all his ranting and whining is coming from. We see right through your agenda "Carlos".

    what's scary is that these talking heads make upwards of 30 Million dollars a year(Rush Limbauhg, Glenn beck, and Sean Hannity) and yet Try to play off as Common Folk. What do they really know about todays Hard working class citizen, yes even us that make Well over 100 K a year!

    Illegal aliens will never stop coming here-especially from mexico-even if you give amnesty which does not work. If you
    want 20 people killed each day by them and crimes and stolen jobs then let them stay and more come in.
    Stupido

    The Views of those who consider themselves modern conservatives are the same as those rebels who started and Lost the Civil War… Some under educated fools will always follow hate mongers

  7. Rob Singer

    folks like Hannity come a dime a dozen, you can't con folks out of their votes , just like you can't win by suppressing the votes , immagrants don't like the GOP policies, and you can't win an election by buying it either, that was proven this very week,,, the republicans will continue to loose election after election until their hate for brown skin folks stop, they need a '''COME TO JESUS MEETING,, we the voters seen how the prez. was treated during these past 4 yrs, we seen how the hate was so strong that the repugs went as far in congress to make sure nothing passed so that they could make pres. Obama a one term, even Mitch McConnell said that in front of a camera, it backfired in the republicans face, they lost, and they lost big time,,, you might fool some folks some of the time , but not this time,,, congradulation PRES. OBAMA ON YOUR SECOND TERM, GOD BLESS YOU.

    I don’t think the Republicans or even the Democrats backed by the Liberal-Socialists, which the Tea Party is emanating, have grown in leaps and bounds to around 41 million voters. The American people are sick and tired of either political parties not listening and there is rising resentment out there? Neither the GOP nor Democrats have enforced immigration laws since the devastating Regan amnesty of 1986. All the promises and lip service have been lies and the Tea Party are no longer listening to the entrenched corruption in the Congress. They could have passed “THE LEGAL WORKFORCE BILL” that would have ejected some of the illegal aliens out of jobs, making way for citizens and permanent residents. They could alter by Amendment the Birthright citizenship Act” but it hasn't been implemented to stop the smuggling of babies accumulating citizenship to further propagate the growing national state and federal financial deficits. Those morons on the beltway have never carried out the law to construct the U.S. border fence, according to the Bush 2006 SECURE FENCE ACT and instead deliberately defunded its construction.

    MY QUESTION IS: What happens to the honest, sincere, immigrants who respects our laws, respects the rights of a country and wait patiently for years to receive a visa for legal entry…doesn’t that mean anything anymore? Why are we allowing poverty to come here, stealing people’s identities, jobs and the criminals committing crimes and then being—REWARDED?

    AMERICANS HAVE BEEN CONSISTENTLY LIED TO, SO WE REALLY HAVE A DIVIDED COUNTRY. NOT SINCE THE CIVIL WAR. ITS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT SINCE THE ELECTION Arkansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Missouri filed petitions at the White House web site asking to secede from the United States as a result of Obama’s re-election. Without even a Republican Party I see in our future an overwhelming Socialist country as much of Europe, with everything for mostly free entitlements and no border or interior enforcement. American’s. Might as well just take done what border fences there are and allow President Obama distribute free food stamps and welfare to every crawling leech that can buy an airline ticket or just hand out assistance checks, free education chits and a paid fee for free baby delivery and medical treatments.

    They could have made illegal immigration into this country a felony, instead of a misdemeanor. Hate to say it, but at least President Obama has deported around a million, or is that also another lie. This administration at one time instructed ICE to raid businesses that were in violation of our immigration laws. Both parties today have aided and abetted illegal immigration and Obama’s preferential treatment by bypassing Congress and offering the Dream Act. I trust neither political party anymore, as corruption has become rampant in Washington. Perhaps if a politicians son, daughter were molested, a wife kidnapped or a grandparent crushed under the wheels of illegal alien drunken driver they might feel different. But Americans, not our public servants who live in gated communities are not confronted by these foreign criminals every day on our nation’s highways. I dumped the Democrats over 20 years ago, looking for a true conservative party and I located that in the Tea Party. I’ll be damned if I will keep paying more taxes to subsidize any illegal alien who slips into America anymore, their children’s education or their health care or anything else.
