Rep. Steve King said Tuesday that granting amnesty to immigrants in this country illegally is more than the equivalent of giving a pass to a bank robber, it’s like letting them keep the money, too.
“To grant amnesty is to pardon immigration lawbreakers and reward them with the objective of their crime,” King said at a Washington panel on amnesty hosted by the conservative group Judicial Watch on Tuesday. “Whatever their objective is, the advocates of amnesty are seeking to grant them their objective.”
The Iowa Republican said whether the immigrants came to the U.S. to work, to send money back home or to join family, allowing them to stay here is letting them profit off their illegal behavior.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Scottsdale, Arizona sent me a letter informing me that his department apprehended over 35,000 illegal immigrants this year. The U. S. Justice System run by Eric Holder has tried to put him out of business for enforcing the existing Immigration laws already in force. The Mexican illegals even tried to get a recall on Joe Arpaio. The Mexican illegals failed.
Now the Feds are after him claiming that his sheriffs are racists. With the ACLU law suit, the judge agreed and Sheriff Joe is appealing.
The Arizona Governor with and Arizona House of Representatives have been allowed to build their own border fence with the states own money and with the help of prison inmates.
The Lt. Governor of Texas has also told the Feds that he will provide his own border and fence patrol.
