You can try to put “conservative” lipstick on the lawless amnesty mob. In the end, however, it's still a lawless mob.

The big government/big business alliance to protect illegal immigration got a lot of mileage using Republicans Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan as front men. But the true colors of the open-borders grievance-mongers always show through.

After America said “No” to a pork-filled security-undermining amnesty bill in 2007, the No Illegal Alien Left Behind lobbyists changed their overtly thuggish tactics.

It was all just an act, of course. Recently illegal alien advocates descended on the private home of Kansas Secretary of State and immigration-enforcement lawyer Kris Kobach. As reported, 300 amnesty activists marched into Kobach's neighborhood, barged up his driveway and right onto his doorstep.

Waving their fists from his front porch, the invaders dubbed Kobach “King of Hate” for his work representing border security activists and federal agents who are fighting the systemic sabotage of immigration law. Thankfully, Kobach, his wife and their four young daughters were not home at the time.

But he's not the only one in their cross hairs.

After Kansas state Rep. Amanda Grosserode condemned the mob action publicly on Facebook, racist insults and threats littered her page. Roberto Medina Ramirez wrote: “I'll give her something to be disgusted about!” Doris Lynn Crouse Gent chimed in: “OMG! Maybe her drive should be next.”

The radicals of Occupy Kansas posted an inflammatory photo of Grosserode with the race-baiting caption: “Kansas State legislator Amanda Grosserode says she is ‘disgusted' by Hispanic protesters.” Grosserode wasn't disgusted by their ethnicity. She was disgusted by their actions. No matter.

Grosserode isn't backing down. As she told me last week, “No one deserves threats nor threats to their home and family.”

But the amnesty vigilantes have no respect for borders, let alone private front porches, in their quest for another massive federal illegal-alien bailout. They have no respect for law-abiding U.S. workers. They have no respect for law-abiding foreigners applying to get into our country the right and proper way.

As they besiege Capitol Hill this month demanding more rights and payoffs, take note: These groups do not stand for the American dream. They are a nightmare conglomeration of George Soros-funded social justice operatives, transnationalists and La Raza militants who detest U.S. sovereignty.

National People's Action (NPA), which spearheads progressive “direct actions” at the private homes of its political foes and led the march on Kobach's home, is a “community organizing” nonprofit based in — you guessed it — Chicago.

NPA's past shakedowns have involved busing in protesters and schoolchildren (using public school buses) to invade the private property of their victims and intimidate their families.

Rubio, Ryan and other Republicans who've made common cause with these welfare-state goons have betrayed fundamental principles of limited government and the rule of law. They've allied themselves with the mob. There's nothing, not one thing, “conservative” about mass illegal-alien amnesty. It's the complete Chicago-ization of America.
