America Live, 1:50 PM, 6/17/13, Immigrants With Felony Convictions Can Get Waivers

 

KOBACH: Well, my guess is in that situation — I mean, we haven’t seen the internal communications , but my guess is because he’d been arrested and not convicted. This administration has been drawing a very strange line in! Saying, we don’t regard you as a criminal. We don’t regard you as a threat to public safety until you’ve been convicted in a court of law. Merely being arrested for drunk driving or arrested for assaulting a federal officer isn’t enough. And I think that’s a real problematic line. They’ve drawn that line not only in the way they exercise discretion, as you described, they’ve done it in executive amnesty they did a year ago, which is the subject of litigation I’m involved in, and doing it in the proposed bill in the senate right now. They allow discretion in someone who hasn’t yet been convicted. As we all know, just because a person doesn’t have that final conviction, that person is still a danger to the community and probably did commit the crime, especially in some cases where the evidence is irrefutable.

 

KELLY: You can’t go with probably. That can’t be the standard in criminal cases. It’s required beyond a reasonable doubt. I see your point. I want to move on to this one because the actual bill being debated in the senate would say that even if you committed a felony, sounds like they’re saying even if you have been convicted of a felony, you might receive special consideration if you have children or a spouse in the united states. So, even if you are deportable, you might be able to stay, somebody like this, if he had a child, even though he killed the father of another child, might be able to stay.

 

KOBACH: Yeah. And you’ve hit on a really important problem in this bill in the senate. The standard under current law is that you can get a waiver. If you’re an illegal alien, in some circumstances, if it causes extreme hardship to a family member. Extreme hardship. One of the clever things drafters of this bill in the the primary breadwinner still in the country. So they’ve done this and it’s going to open a flood gate if the law passes to discretion to anyone.

 

Rush Limbaugh, 1:26 PM, 6/17/13, Democrats Need Permanent Underclass

 

LIMBAUGH: The income tax is the #1 inhibitor to wealth creation, by design. Freedom is a hard sell but hard work is even a harder sell to some people. I love immigration when it’s major feature is assimilation. But how are they going to vote? Democrats need a permanent underclass. Some Americans are able to advance out of the underclass, out of the reach of the Democrat party, and they have to be replaced. Hello amnesty.

 

Rush Limbaugh, 12:13 PM, 6/17/13, Attacks Rubio Statement On Workers

 

LIMBAUGH: Daily Caller reports that the White House is running the immigration bill. A Rubio aide said there are jobs Americans are unfit for. What’s offensive about the quote is the assumption that every one of the “illegals” is qualified, wants to work. The major thing to take away is that Obama’s running this bill. Not the gang of 8.

 

Laura Ingraham, 10:38 AM, 6/17/13, Immigrants And Crime Hosts Maria Espinoza

 

INGRAHAM: DUIs, Violent crimes, rape against children, I’m not saying all immigrants do this, but there have been some horrific crimes.

 

ESPINOZA: There have been hundreds of illegal immigrant crimes against American citizens which are rarely reported. American families are not protected, shattering the nucleus of the family. There is a tremendous amount of killing by illegal immigrants driving drunk… high occurrence of child molestation and rape.
