Our Immigration System is Broken? No, It Works Just Fine -- If You Follow the Law! The Laws are Being Broken!


RUSH: Scott in Los Angeles, glad you waited, sir.

CALLER:  Hi, Rush.  Thanks for taking my call.

RUSH:  Yes.

CALLER:  I keep hearing this narrative out there that our immigration system is broken, and you did say something about this on your show earlier today.  I have never heard anybody explain what about our immigration system that's broken.  Now, I know the fence is broken, where it exists, and I know the laws are broken by the illegal immigrants.  But I keep hearing -- and this comes from Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio -- our immigration system is broken.  Our immigration system works fine, if you follow the rules.

RUSH:  You know, that's so true.  It's like when they say our tax system is broken or when they say politics -- the system isn't broken.  Capitalism, our politics, works fine.  It's corrupt people that are the problem.

CALLER:  Correct.

RUSH:  No, you're exactly right.  I have the same reaction.

CALLER:  I think we need to say this, 'cause the deal is, like you said during your breaks, you hear that commercial running over and over again using conservative people that keep hammering home our broken immigration system. Our immigration system is not broken.  And we can build walls, Rush.  In Los Angeles we're building 50-foot walls all along the freeways to keep the sound out.  If we would take that money, we could build a fence and keep the people out.

RUSH:  Yeah, but, you see, the people that tell you that our system is broken would say, "Building a fence is exactly what we mean. We shouldn't have to build a fence.  Civilized countries don't build fences to keep people out.  That's not what we've always done."  And what they mean when they say the system is broken, we've got 11 million illegals here, and they're just trying to sell people on the concept that we need to change something.  And that maybe true, too, but what you're saying, at least what I hear you saying, the only change we need is enforce the law that we already have.

CALLER:  Exactly.  The laws are there.  I mean, the laws are being broken, that's the part of the immigration system that's broke.

RUSH:  That is exactly right.  That's what's broken, the laws are being broken.

CALLER:  The laws are being broken.

RUSH:  That is profound.

CALLER:  Thanks, Rush.

RUSH:  You bet. He knew it was profound.  You know what?  He's a smart guy. He knew that he was uttering a profundity there.  And so when I said, "That's profound," he said yes, and hung up.  He knew.  Scott in Los Angeles.
