Lou Dobbs Tonight, 4/24/13, 7:56 PM, Dobbs Discusses Immigration Reform Legislation
DOBBS: Why not do immigration intelligently and incrementally and not ram it through like Obamacare?
Laura Ingraham, 4/25/13, 10:38 AM, Ingraham Attacks Janet Napolitano On Immigration Enforcement
INGRAHAM: What’s going to stop Janet Napolitano from saying in 2014, these immigration enforcement laws are not going to work, we should ignore them.
Laura Ingraham, 4/25/13, 10:44 AM, Ingraham Hosts ICE President Chris Crane To Discuss Immigration Bill
INGRAHAM: this immigration bill is going to make every international gang member a citizen. We’re going to dismiss their criminal histories, and then they still get to commit crimes while they’re on probation.
Ingraham claims Rubio is being hypocritical: he said he wouldn’t allow this provision to stay in the bill, and then the bill drops and it’s still there
Crane also thinks it’s crazy they say we couldn’t get biometric IDs for immigrants because it costs too much, when Disney World has biometric scanners!
Martha MacCallum, 4/25/13, 9:39 AM, Brings Up Student Visas During Conversation About Boston Bombing
MACCALLUM: One more question i want to ask you because you’re on the intel committee. Do you have confidence in our intelligence services based on the fact that they seemed to let tamerlan slip through our fingers that they will be able to pick up on people who should not receive a student visa accurately?
RUBIO: We have great men and women in the intelligence service and it will not be 100%. But questions need to be answered why we did not continue with the investigation of this individual particularly after we got the tip from the Russians.
Rush Limbaugh, 4/25/13, 12:28 PM, Comments On Ted Cruz’s Claim That The Immigration Bill Isn’t Intended To Pass
LIMBAUGH: That’s what we’ve been saying here. Ted Cruz, echoing something I said yesterday about this, said the gang of 8’s bill was not intended to pass.
Rush Limbaugh, 4/25/13, 12:53PM, Talks About Putting Obstacles In The Face Of Progress On Immigration
LIMBAUGH: Amnesty, blatant amnesty is supposed to get killed in the Republican House. The danger is, it may not. They might think, look we’re sick and tired of being opposed to everything. Look, I get up every morning and come here and defend my values and country against the things that are attacking them. Some people say that’s putting obstacles in the face of progress. Republicans are told they’re always the obstacles to things, I guess, and they don’t like that. I don’t know, I wouldn’t be surprised if amnesty just sailed through the House. They’re tired of opposing everything, so they’ll stop! And then people will like them, and they’ll go back only having 150 members.
Hannity, 4/25/13, 3:50 PM, Claims Obama Doesn’t Want Immigration Reform
