Linda Chavez Doesn't Get It

Linda Chavez goes off the deep end.

The former Secretary of Labor nominee (who withdrew due to allegations she hired illegal aliens) made some harsh statements about those who don't support open borders and/or the Immigration Capitulation bill. Most notably, this quote here

"Some people just don’t like Mexicans — or anyone else from south of the border. They think Latinos are freeloaders and welfare cheats who are too lazy to learn English. They think Latinos have too many babies, and that Latino kids will dumb down our schools. They think Latinos are dirty, diseased, indolent and more prone to criminal behavior. They think Latinos are just too different from us ever to become real Americans."

Linda Chavez, I am a Hispanic...first-generation American on my mother's side. I don't support this plan because it circumvents the justification for having laws in this country. Illegal aliens came here illegally, and therefore do not have the right to stay here. They should be deported if caught, and made to go through the legal process to obtain legal status in the United States of America.

My mother did it. My grandparents did it. Millions upon millions of our ancestors did it. These illegal immigrants can do it, too.
