Addressing the ongoing immigration crisis involving tens of thousands of undocumented women and children who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border, Republican Congressman Raul Labrador said Sunday that what this administration needs to do is clear: “deport these families, these children.”
The Idaho Rep. continued on NBC’s “Meet on the Press” saying, “I know it sounds harsh, I know it sounds difficult. But they’re creating a crisis at this time that’s actually going to harm these children.” Labrador’s comments are part of a polarized debate over the immigration crisis at the border that played out across the Sunday morning talk shows.
Appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Senator Lindsey Graham echoed his Republican colleague saying, “We have to send them back, because if you don’t you’re going to incentivize people throughout that part of the world to keep sending their children here.” Graham also added, “This is a specific problem created by an impression that if you get to America you can stay.”
Gee. I wonder if anything Senator Lindsey “Dickhead for Scamnesty” Graham might have said on the issue previously could have offered encouragement to this latest invasion of illegal aliens?
