Worry on the Right Over GOP Sympathy Toward Obama’s Amnesty for Children
I’m getting a lot of e-mail from people very worried about something. (interruption) What? What did you say? What do you think people are worried about? The Obama immigration policy for the children. Here’s the problem. I haven’t had the TV on the past couple days, but I don’t need to ’cause I have people out there watching and they e-mail me and tell me what happened, and they want to know what I think about it. Apparently, what’s happening out there is a lot of people, quote, unquote, on our side are saying they are sympathetic to the issue. They’re sympathetic to essentially these children being nationless and how can we say to a child, “Outta here, pal.” Sympathetic to the policy.
Now, there are two reasons they’re sympathetic to the policy. One is, it’s the children. And two is that Marco Rubio has similar ideas. So if you rip into Obama here, by default you’re ripping into Marco Rubio, who is a rising star in the Republican Party. The problem here is, again, I live in Realville. And that’s my problem. You cannot incentivize illegal immigration of any kind — grandmothers, grandchildren, pregnant mothers, you could tug every heartstring there is out there — you can’t do that until you’ve secured the border. That has to happen first. Everybody knows this, but nobody, at this stage, has the gumption to do anything about it. It comes down to a morality play, and that’s where everybody gets tripped up here. But I don’t think there’s anything moral about this kind of pandering.
