She may have ovaries, but a good politician also has a sense of restraint. By making very out of earth statements, Riddle made herself into a laughing stock. Her actions and inability to feel shame from them is not a gutsy trait to be proud of - it's a lamentable trait to laugh at.

Good politicians have restraint and "genitals," so they can pound the pressure when they can, but also hold themselves back from embarrassment.

Yes, there are those who come to this country to try and make a better living, illegally or not. And yes, there those who smuggle illicit items into the country just to make some extra bucks. What many of us are forgetting and what she is trying to explain to people like you is, there are those additional elements who are trying to cross the border that have devious premeditated evil intentions. E.g. Al Qaeda.

She may not be the best orator around but the point she is making means sense!

Let's refer to her statements: Texas Reps. talk 'little terrorists,' 'anchor babies' on CNN - PoliTex

"a plot involving pregnant women from other countries traveling to America as tourists to give birth, and then raising the babies as terrorists."

That would take too long, and would be thwarted by the school system, social service agencies, etc. When terrorist groups recruit people who are, say, US citizens, they do so on the internet and reach out to disaffected youth.

Drug cartel men do cross the border for illicit purposes; but I haven't heard of Al Qaeda using that tactic. It seems like they go for homegrown recruiting or legal entry.

Well, if Latino parents can help indoctrinate their kids into the Chicano Nationalist mindset, I would say that the other scenario is possible also from parents here from know terrorist countries. Kids are influenced by both their parents and their peers.

As for terrorists just entering our country legally as the 9/11 ones did with visas well there is evidence provided by the FBI Director that OTM's from known terrorist countries have entered illegally already and disappeared into our country. Anything is possible in this day and age with our government turning its back on securing our borders.
