John Hawkins interviewed Bettina Inclan. Bettina is the former Executive Director of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly and is currently the Communications Director for Rep. Thad McCotter (R-MI), Chairman of the Republican House Policy Committee. Here is part of what she said:
We can talk about, "We need to secure our country, we need to know who's coming into this nation because we live in a different world after 9/11." ...Mexico itself has very strong rules on coming in and out of that country. I think people understand that.Do you agree with this statement? Is it racist to be concerned about absorbing illegal immigrants into this country who keep their language, culture and communities separate from America at large?
It's when people try to play a lot of the liberal routines of (drumming up) emotion and saying things like, "These people are invading our country. They're going to take over. There's not going to be any more traditional America!" (that we get in trouble)...
UPDATE: Ann Coulter says this:
For simplicity, I have limited my enumeration of illegal aliens I would like deported to those who were charged or convicted of heinous crimes last week. For illegal aliens charged with child molestation, I had to limit it to two days last week.
The Democratic Party is in the fight of its life against a conservative demographic trend. Its only hope is to gerrymander America to make the poorest half of Mexico a state. Only a massive influx of criminals, wards of the state and rioters can save them.
This is why Democrats are obsessed with giving two groups the right to vote: illegal aliens and felons. With Arellano, they get two for the price of one. To liberals, building a wall across the Mexican border is a violation of the Voting Rights Act.
I think the security problem of an open border is two-fold: the radical Islamists who desired to blow cities back to Allah and the crime associated with illegal immigrants being a part of a fringe society. I don't think it's racist to note that some illegals come to America for expressly criminal reasons because they can operate with freer reign and the consequences for being caught are friendlier than in Mexico.
A country and culture can be overwhelmed by tsunami or a steady drop over many years.
