Just when you think this Administration can't get any stupider, out comes Holder.

Quote:
"Creating a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million unauthorized immigrants in this country is essential. The way we treat our friends and neighbors who are undocumented – by creating a mechanism for them to earn citizenship and move out of the shadows – transcends the issue of immigration status. This is a matter of civil and human rights. It is about who we are as a nation. And it goes to the core of our treasured American principle of equal opportunity."

Let's see the AGs comments, in their entirety and in context. The linked article, one of several appearing on right-wing extremists blogs, doesn't provide that ... at least not one that worked when I clicked on it. Maybe you have another to share.

It's not a right -- in fact there is absolutely no good reason to reward illegals in any way.

What happens if they don't get their big easy amnesty? Will they pout? Will they stamp their feet? Maybe but it's not as though they're going to get really mad and pack their bags and go back home.

It's about who we are as a nation? I thought we were a nation for the rule of law? What a hypocrite he is! If it is a civil and human right for foreigners to enter our country at will and become citizens of our country then why do we have immigration laws, Mr. Holder?

Once those 11 million come out of the shadows and be counted it will end up closer to 20 million.

That "11 million" has been static for over a decade now.

More like 50 million if you consider all their families that they'll be able to bring from their home countries.

Yes, that's what I think. But you can still post the link to that information ... and I'm ready to read it and offer an opinion.
Just what I thought, the link was to a video of Holder stating such. Did you not listen to the video? What does a "right-wing report" have to do with an actual video of Holder stating exactly what he said?

The one who seems to lack in comprehensible ability to discern a topic or a comment seems to be you. imjusayin

The link was posted, maybe you should actually try to watch the video before espousing your rhetorical ignorance as usual.

Holder's right: illegal aliens have the "right" to be sent home and it ain't the US.
