On the coming release of up to 30,000 illegal alien criminals from U.S. jails by the Department of Homeland Security, supposedly because of budget pressures under the sequester…
Let's not forget, thanks to Obama's various executive orders, ICE, the immigration people, no longer detain any illegal aliens unless they've been convicted of a serious crime. That's who we're talking about here. You have to commit a serious crime before we detain you, if you're illegal. So this isn't just a bunch of discriminated-against freedom fighters that have been wrongly jailed finally seeing freedom at all. These really are convicted criminals that are being released. And somehow it's being blamed on the Republicans. This whole idea is Obama's. He's the one that gives the order to Janet Napolitano to release these people. Republicans couldn't order this if they wanted to and yet they're going to end up getting the blame for it.
On the Republican party’s supposed Hispanic crisis…
We're not compassionate enough when it comes to immigration. Too many Hispanics think Republicans don't like 'em and don't want 'em to be here and wanna deport 'em. The Democrats tell us this. The Democrats are saying, "You guys are gonna have to moderate your views on this. You're gonna have to become more like we are." Now, my problem with this is I just can't believe it. If the Democrats think that their position on immigration (let's use that for an example) is the right one, and if the Democrats' position is what's getting all of that support from Hispanic voters, what I don't understand is why would the Democrats want to give up some of those voters to the Republicans?
On the Obama administration’s ongoing re-election strategies…
They’re just throwing everything up against the wall, hoping something’s gonna stick out there… First, war on churches. Second, create, as part of it, a phony Republican war on women. Then go after Mitt Romney, Bain Capital. Then come out for gay marriage. And now – don’t deport the young illegals, give ‘em work permits. What’s that gonna do to the unemployment number? Are we gonna count ‘em, looking for work, or not? If we don’t, the number won’t change. If we do, the number will go up. What’s it gonna do to those of you trying to get work, to learn that 800,000 new illegals are in the job market, who’ll work cheaper than you do? And what’s next, is home mortgages, and student loans. Those are the next two things that are gonna fall, throw it up against the– You watch!
On the Federal Government suing the State of Arizona over Arizona’s immigration law…
Folks, I know it sounds … well sort of incomprehensible, but I’m telling you that the Democrat party is looking at as many illegals as possible turning into voters. That’s why they don’t want photo ID at the polling place. It is the number-one reason why. There is no other reason. “Because it’s racist” or “Because it’s big-brotherish.” That’s not the reason. They want to be able to have people who aren’t legally registered to vote, vote. If you have to have a photo ID, then you’re shut out. If you’re illegal.
Mark Davis is filling in for Rush today… On the logic of immigration enforcement.
Let us not divorce ourselves from some clarity here. The moment you set foot on American soil as an illegal immigrant you are a law-breaker. The minute you are. If you brought your beautiful family with you, you’re still breaking the law. If all you want is a better life for yourself, you’re still breaking the law. If you have the noblest of intent, you’re still breaking the law. Now, we have to figure out what to do about that. Lot of people want guest worker programs, a lot of people want amnesty, and a lot of people just want to deport every single one of ‘em and do deportation from now until we’re done. As a practical matter, that’s gonna be hard. I’ll be the first to tell you, with ten, fifteen, twenty million illegals that we have, finding every single one of them and at least sending them in the direction of the nation of their birth is a very tall order. But you know what? Try it anyway! Because using that logic – and I love when people give me this – they say, “Well, we’ll never get all of them, so why try?” What? Well guess what, we’ll never get all the drug users, either. We’ll never get all of the bank robbers either. We’ll never get all of the speeders. Let’s do away with speed limits. We’ll never catch all the speeders. Let’s do away with drug laws. We’ll never catch everybody that’s dealing in coke or hash or meth or pot or whatever, we’ll never catch everybody, so since we won’t catch everybody, why even try? That logic would never last a second, with various other crimes. But with immigration it’s supposed to.
