Our leaders are stupid. Our politicians are stupid. And the Mexican government is much smarter, much sharper, much more cunning and they send the bad ones over because they don't want to pay for them.
06/28/15Donald TrumpCNN
You have people coming in, and I'm not just saying Mexicans — I'm talking about people that are from all over that are killers and rapists, and they're coming into this country.
06/16/15Donald TrumpTrump Tower
When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.

Kobach considers the possibility of Hispanics ethnically cleansing the U.S. population
“What protects us in America from any kind of ethnic cleansing is the rule of law, of course. And the rule of law used to be unassailable, used to be taken for granted in America. And now, of course, we have a president who disregards the law when it suits his interests. So, while I normally would answer that by saying, ‘Steve, of course we have the rule of law, that could never happen in America,’ I wonder what could happen. I still don’t think it’s going to happen in America, but I have to admit, things are strange and th...

Gohmert is worried that children crossing the southern border are carrying ebola into the United States
“And, gee, since they’re coming across our border, and you know, they don’t get checked, and most of them don’t get really thoroughly checked, they could be coming in with disease that we simply do not need.”
07/30/14Steve KingCNN
Rep. King says Obama's policies caused migrant families to send their daughters 'down a rape path' and into America.
This is a man-caused disaster, and the man that caused it is Barack Obama with his DOCA policy, with his Morton Memos and the advertisement that has been such a huge magnet that have caused these families to give their daughters birth control pills and send them down a rape path all the way through Mexico, and it's a death path on the death train.
02/22/14Paul BrounSenate Republican Debate, GA
Paul Broun said the only immigration law that he want's to see being passed is one that makes English the official language of America.
There’s only one new law I would like to see passed. One, and only one. And that’s one to make English the official language of America.
02/04/14Laura IngrahamLaura Ingram Show
Laura Ingraham accused Justice Sotomayor of swearing her allegiance to Puerto Rico and not the United States.
“Why do we have a Supreme Court justice [Sonia Sotomayor] whose allegiance obviously goes to her immigrant family background and not to the U.S. Constitution?
08/01/13Cathie AdamsTrunews
While railing against immigration reform, Cathie Adams said that the biometric scanning requirement proposal in the Senate immigration bill will lead to the end times.
That is going to be the brand either on our foreheads or on the back of our hands. That is demonic through and through. That is End Times prophecy. There is no question about that.
07/23/13Steve KingRadio Iowa, IA
Adding insult to injury, Representative King doubled down on his claim that the vast majority of undocumented DREAMER's are drug mules.
It’s not something that I’m making up. This is real. We have people that are mules, that are drug mules, that are hauling drugs across the border and you can tell by their physical characteristics what they’ve been doing for months...
07/18/13Steve KingNewsmax
Representative King claimed that for every undocumented immigrant that is a valedictorian, there are 100 immigrants that are drug mules.
For everyone who's a valedictorian, there's another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert
03/28/13Don YoungAlaska
Republican Congressman Don Young used an ethnic slur directed towards Hispanics when discussing his father's ranch and how many people it required to pick tomatoes back then compared to now.
My father had a ranch; we used to have 50-60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes. It takes two people to pick the same tomatoes now. It’s all done by machine.”
12/05/12Ann CoulterPersonal Column
Coulter says that Hispanics are not more hardworking that Americans and that Hispanic women are less hard working.
Rather than being more hardworking than Americans, Hispanics actually work about the same as others, or, in the case of Hispanic women, less.
11/08/12Rush LimbaughRush Limbaugh Show
Limbaugh says Cubans Aren't "Popular In The Overall Hispanic Group" Because They're Not "As Dark" And Are "Oriented Toward Work"
Yeah. You know, I had a sneaking suspicion you were going to go there, and I have a sneaking suspicion that the Cubans are not all that popular, are they? ... They're not, are they? And why aren't the Cubans popular in the overall Hispanic group?... But the Republicans get a large part of the Cuban vote, particularly South Florida, already. And it's oriented -- I can't win here, I just can't win. It's oriented -- the reason that the Cubans are not that popular, of the Hispanic divisions you've talked about -- it's a race th...
07/16/12National ReviewNational Review
Senior Editor of National Review Online uses the term 'wetback'
ruth is, some conservatives lamented that he had indeed “grown” in office. He had gone out of his way to accommodate liberals and moderates, and to accommodate the Kremlin. He was raising taxes, spending like crazy, welcoming wetbacks, pursuing arms control. One common cry from the right was, “None of this would be happening if Ronald Reagan were alive.”
05/25/12Joe WalshSchaumburg, IL
Joe Walsh believes that African Americans are dependent on Government and Dems made them that way, Hispanics are next.
They want the Hispanic vote, they want Hispanics to be dependent on government, just like they got African Americans dependent on government. That's their game.

As if the minority of Arizona are in a power to suppress the citizens of Arizona, Limbaugh compares immigrants to Gadhafi.
Gadhafi is mistreating his people..., people in Arizona have their own problems being mistreated by illegals.

Beck tries to apply the states' rights argument used in 1860 to illegal immigration by saying the two are the same thing.
Illegal immigration is slavery

Beck attacks 14th Amendment, complete with picture of man, baby in sombreros
All persons who successfully sneak into the country will be allowed to stay indefinitely. All crimes committed by those lawbreakers (i.e., identity theft, fraud, and tax evasion) will be ignored. These non-American Americans will be afforded free health care at emergency rooms, free education,, and special in-state tuition deals at colleges, not afforded legal citizens. All children born of these lawbreakers shall immediately become citizens of the United States. Any person attempting to thwart this revision of Section I wi...

Richwine argues that Hispanics have naturally lower IQs than whites in his dissertation
No one knows whether Hispanics will ever reach IQ parity with whites, but the prediction that new Hispanic immigrants will have low-IQ children and grandchildren is difficult to argue against.

King compares electrified border fence to containing livestock.
I also say we need to do a few other things on top of that wall, and one of them being to put a little bit of wire on top here to provide a disincentive for people to climb over the top or put a ladder there. We could also electrify this wire with the kind of current that would not kill somebody, but it would simply be a discouragement for them to be fooling around with it. We do that with livestock all the time.
