RUSH: I want you to listen to something from Eric Holder. He's the attorney general. This is Wednesday in Washington, April 24th. This is a speech to the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund awards gala.
HOLDER: Creating a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million unauthorized immigrants in this country is absolutely essential. The way we treat our friends and neighbors who are undocumented by creating a mechanism for them to earn citizenship and to move out of the shadows transcends the issue of immigration status. This is a matter of civil and human rights. It's about who we are as a nation, and it goes to the core of our treasured American principle of equal opportunity.
RUSH: Okay, so you can't oppose amnesty now, because amnesty is a civil right. This is a matter of civil and human rights, a mechanism for them to earn citizenship, move out of the shadows, transcends the issue of immigration status. It's a civil right. So you can't oppose amnesty now. Just like illegal aliens' right to serve on juries. You've heard them say that. Just like their inalienable right to get food stamps. Amnesty, a civil right. Amnesty is the equivalent of wiping out slavery. You can't oppose that.
RUSH: Yes, Eric Holder said that amnesty is -- I'm being asked this. You heard him. It's a civil right. There are seven billion people on earth, and that means that every one of them has a civil right to move to the United States. If amnesty's a civil right, folks, if illegally being in America is a civil right, we can't deny anybody.
