RUSH: The AP has a story that immigration is a nonfactor in the November elections, congressional House races, it's a nonfactor. And in the Senate races, it's just amazing. It's dropped off with all this stuff going on, Ferguson and ISIS and Al-Qaeda and all the rest of it, the voters don't care about immigration anymore. That's the point of the story. Immigration's dropped off the radar. You people don't care about it. It isn't going to be a factor in congressional races in November.
AP has story. Daily Caller has this: "Democratic State Representative and candidate for US representative Pat Murphy said Tuesday that if the underage migrants who have come to the US from Central America aren’t given a 'pathway for citizenship' they could become terrorists."
He was on public radio in Iowa. He said, "We need to make sure that we take care of the children that are coming up here. They’re not from Mexico, they’re coming from further south. We need to make sure that when we’re talking about these children we need to treat them like they’re our children or our grandchildren. If they’re gonna be refugees, which several of them are going to be, we need to make sure that we have -- one, we take care of them, and we create a pathway for citizenship and set up education for them so they don’t become the same problem that we’re currently having in the Middle East -- that they’ll be terrorists a generation from now."
Remember, now, AP says immigration is a nonfactor. It's just amazing how it's disappeared. It has nothing to do and will have nothing to do with the House races in November. And now this guy, a State Representative in Iowa, Pat Murphy, seeking a seat in the US House of Representatives, said, "We better grant these kids amnesty 'cause if we don't --"
What he's essentially saying is, if we don't grant 'em amnesty, they're gonna get so mad, they're gonna become terrorists, and we don't want 'em to become terrorists. We don't want that. So we better give 'em health care and we better give 'em citizenship. We better give 'em welfare and we better take care of 'em like they are our own children and our own grandchildren. Otherwise they're gonna become terrorists.
You think I'm making this up? This is certifiable proof that Democrats, some Democrats from Iowa, are insane. I don't know who it's an insult to. Yes, it's an insult to the children, but you talk about what must this guy think of the voters in Iowa who he wants to elect him. How stupid does he think they are? How frightened, how scared does he think they are instead of being angry? But it follows, doesn't it, folks?
Think about this, this guy's dead serious. It follows. The US is the problem in the world. We better make amends. We better make sure that they find out a different story about us. They want to come here so bad, I mean, they're traveling 45 days, sometimes on the top of trains. They're being brought here by coyotes. They're leaving their own parents. They're leaving their own homes. They want to come here so bad, and if we don't be nice, why, they're gonna become terrorists. Do you realize that kind of thinking could handcuff us? That kind of defensive, guilt-laden, frightened way of thinking could lead us to do anything that's detrimental to our own national interests.
Now, I just wanted to pass that on because there are some companion stories to this. CNN says that over 400 British citizens are members of ISIS and that ISIS is targeting the United States. And then Rick Perry spoke at the Heritage Foundation, and he said that there's a real possibility ISIS is already here. So I would tell Pat Murphy in Iowa, "Hey, we don't have to worry about the kids getting mad at us and becoming terrorists. Apparently -- well, we know. It's not a mystery. They are already here."
