If You Don't Secure The Border, You Don't Have a Country—Rush Limbaugh May 05, 2005
Wow! If you weren't tuned in to the EIB yesterday, click the link above and read the transcripts from the Rush Limbaugh Show.
In a segment he calls the Illegal Alien Stack, Rush ranted for considerable time about a handful of illegal aliens who have recently made headlines.
Each story was punctuated by remarks from Limbaugh such as
“The floodgates are open. If you're not going to close the borders to illegals, if you're not going to enforce the border, you don't have a country; you're not going to have a country. It's just that simple”.
The best part of the segment (other than Rush dedicating increasingly more time to the issue) was an interview between Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee and C-SPAN host Peter Slen.

According to the zany Madam Lee who is sponsoring a bill that would grant amnesty to the trove of Haitian nationals who reside illegally in the U.S., illegal aliens need this adjustment of status so they can…yep, vote.
“Those who are here want to stay here, want to work here, and want to be legitimate citizens, and want to be able to vote legitimately.”—Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
Hmm…she said “vote legitimately”—which speaks to her own awareness of some not-so-legitimate voting from the immigrant community.
I thought maybe the admission was accidental. What kind of Congressperson, with their oath to uphold the Constitution and all that, would advertise their refusal to enforce both immigration and election laws?
The answer is Sheila Jackson Lee and the entire mob of pro-immigration politicians who only see 10-20 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. as 10-20 million new voters.
Did I say new? I meant newly legitimate.
