This Week

Only five against one...

Back last July I blogged in Why We Won't See Lou Barletta On The MSM Anytime Soon that Pennsylvania’s Patriot Congressman Lou Barletta was far too able to be allowed to discuss immigration issues where the broad public might see him.

So I was pleasantly surprised to see a brief appearance by Barletta on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, “balanced” by Treason Lobby tribesmen Jorge Ramos and Paul Krugman and Cheap Labor Sow (and 2010 California GOP Senate disaster) Carly Fiorina.

And that was — at the time, they told the American people this is one time only, 1.5 million illegal aliens would get amnesty, and it ended up being 3 million. The same thing will happen today, George, when we're offering a pathway to citizenship without knowing that we could secure our borders.

Any time you start waving a carrot, such as American citizenship, without securing the borders, that number that we have today, I believe, will double or even triple.

…I don't know how anyone could argue that this administration is serious about enforcing our laws when they're suing the state of Arizona because the federal government has caused the problem and Arizona wants to defend itself, as well as another example is the president's prosecutorial discretion, where he is prohibiting law enforcement agents from enforcing the law. In fact, there are ICE agents who are suing the administration

…Here's the thing. Because so many will be at the lower end of the economic ladder, what they will be paying in taxes because they will be earning less and what they'll be taking out in programs that are already going broke, we're not going to be able to afford it. Number two, the people who are hurting the most...


A good measure of his success is that there have been a crop of spluttering video clips on left wing sites for instance Lou Barletta: Immigration Reform Risks Flood Of The Undocumented Elise Foley The Huffington Post 02/03/2013

For some strange reason Barletta’s performance  has not been picked up by Conservatism Inc  outlets.
