Fox News Channel, Fox & Friends, 7:20, Michael Farris Discusses German Family Seeking Asylum:
FARRIS: If we put the legal issues aside, we have a political question, which is why is the government being lenient to the 11 million immigrants who came here illegally, but want to be so harsh to this one family? They clearly have the discretion to say, you know what? Let’s let them stay. Why they refuse to exercise that discretion is baffling.
Fox News Channel, Happening Now, 11:19, Jon Scott Hosts Sen. Paul To Discuss Immigration Bill:
SCOTT: Background checks would be part of the immigration reform bill, already they are. But in the case of the Tsarnaev brothers, the older brother Tamerlan got more than a background check — he got an FBI interview, and that didn’t uncover what he ultimately pulled off there in Boston.
PAUL: But there are reports now today […] that his trip back to Chechnya wasn’t lit up on radar for the FBI because his name was misspelled.
Fox News Channel, Happening Now, 1:27, Jon Scott Hosts Joe Trippi To Discuss Immigration Reform:
SCOTT: The immigration overhaul proposal could have major impact on the nation’s political landscape pumping millions of new Hispanic voters into the election, which if history is any indicator would be a good thing for democrats. Do you believe the immigration bill on balance would be a bigger net benefit to democratic politicians?
TRIPPI: I think it will benefit both parties. One of the problems that the republicans have had is that their opposition to immigration reform to reaching a compromise has really hurt them in the Latino and Hispanic communities.
Fox News Channel, America Live, 2:36, Megyn Kelly Hosts Bob Beckel To Discuss Security
BECKEL: Muslim students come from countries that don’t like the US.
KELLY: Why isn’t there more terror then?
BECKEL: Most of them aren’t interested in terrorism. I’m just saying those students from those countries that harbor resentment, if we could save one marathon runner’s life, let’s take a 2-year time out.
Rush Limbaugh, The Rush Limbaugh Show, 12:19, Limbaugh Discusses Alleged Bombers And Immigration:
LIMBAUGH: We lost track of Tsarnaev because we misspelled his name and we think it’s going to be no big deal to legalize 11 million immigrants?
