RUSH: There's a Pew Research Center survey. "As Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto travels across California and declares America to be 'the other Mexico' --" You know, this is strange. Have you seen the story today, Al-Qaeda has a magazine? Al-Qaeda has a magazine. TIME Magazine is losing subs. Newsweek is out of business. US News is barely holding on, and Al-Qaeda has a magazine. (interruption) Oh, yeah, I know. And in the latest issue of Al-Qaeda Today are targets in America, bomb targets, car bombs.
They are laying out targets, they are making threats, and they are predicting all kinds of terror attacks, car bombs, in various parts of the country, in a magazine. And Obama's fundraising, or what have you.
"As Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto travels across California and declares America to be 'the other Mexico,' a Pew Research survey has found that 60% of Mexicans disapprove of Pena Nieto on the economy. Perhaps as a result, a plurality of Mexicans think that life is better across the border," and a third of the Mexican population says they would come here if they could.
"In addition, the Pew survey found that 'two-thirds are dissatisfied with the way things are going in Mexico today' while 'only 30% are satisfied.'" But, see, the people in Mexico who don't like it, they can come here. Where do we go? Where do we go when we don't like it? Well, we can go to a different state, maybe, and we have to change it internally. One-third of the Mexican population would come here. Do you think the Democrats aren't salivating over that possibility?
You better realize long and hard, if the Democrat Party could figure out a way to get one-third of Mexico here as registered Democrat voters, they would do it, folks. They do not care. They obviously do not care. The Democrat Party doesn't care about prosperity for the masses. The Democrat Party doesn't care about wealth, the accumulation of wealth, a growing economy, for the masses. The Democrat Party needs a permanent underclass of subservient -- and that's key -- subservient, dependent, low educated, low skilled people who are proficient at only one thing, and that's voting. That's all the Democrats need.
They'll have their enclaves where they can be prosperous and they can accumulate wealth and they can live among each other, and they will do what they can to keep all of the rabble out. They will not live amongst it. They will not live next to or among all of these new arrivals that they profess to love and respect so much and whose human rights they think need to be protected and promoted. They won't do a damn thing for 'em but take their votes and dispense meager welfare benefits to them.
In a related story from Reuters. "US authorities have agreed to stop pressuring undocumented immigrants in Southern California to sign off on their own deportations under a legal settlement that may later allow some deportees to return from Mexico to seek US legal residency. The deal reached between the American Civil Liberties Union and federal officials stems from a lawsuit brought last year on behalf of other immigration rights groups."
What is immigration rights? What right to immigrate does anybody have? There is no such right. That is a behavior permissible by American law. There's no right to immigrate. Immigration rights groups. Anyway, what this is -- because this story as written by Reuters requires translation. This is a textbook example of how the left works. The claim here, the claim that they are making on behalf of immigration rights groups, the claim is that California coerced illegal aliens into signing voluntary deportation forms.
Oh, yes, don't you know. The state of California tricked people. The state of California tricked all of these innocent, unsuspecting jewels of humanity, tricked them into signing their own deportation forms. But now, thanks to a deal struck between the US government and the ACLU -- and I submit there's no difference in the two -- what this means, folks, is that now hundreds, maybe hundreds and thousands of illegal aliens are gonna be allowed to come back to California, after they were deported, because they're gonna claim they were tricked and deported illegally.
So, in addition to the daily migration that is taking place, we are now told that hundreds of thousands of those previously deported can come back because they were tricked into leaving on their own. And Reuters is overjoyed reporting this, I might add. Reuters can barely contain their excitement. "All of the immigrants had strong grounds for being allowed to remain in the United States after entering illegally because of family ties and a lack of criminal history."
So Reuters is saying they had no business being sent back. They were tricked into signing their own deportation. But they were wonderful people and they should have been allowed to stay. Even though they were here illegally they should have been allowed to stay, because of family history, and none of 'em had any criminal history.
What does any of that matter? They were here illegally! Do you notice how that is simply ignored and looked past as though it's not even there? Illegally doesn't matter. You're racist and bigoted if you point that out. So it's now racist and bigoted to engage in the honor system and obey the law.
Did you know that immigration judges are unionized? Try this, from the AP: "Immigration Judges' Union Wants Independent Court -- The federal immigration court system should be separated from the Justice Department and operated independently of federal law enforcement, the top two leaders of the immigration judges' union said Wednesday."
Now, who knew that immigration judges even had a union? I wonder what party these guys donate to. Just kidding. We know who they donate to. "Judge Dana Leigh Marks, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges --" Seriously? Unionized judges? "Judge Dana Leigh Marks, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges, said immigration judges act as arbiters in deportation cases being argued by Homeland Security Department lawyers but judges also are treated as attorneys for the government." And, as such, this won't do, so they need to be separated from the DOJ.
They need to be treated as their own Department of Judges, immigration judges. And they should be given their own court. It's a conflict of interest to have these judges be in the department. Yeah, see, they can't ever be seen as being on the side of the US government. That would be violating somebody's civil rights somewhere, obviously.
Okay. Luis Gutierrez. Luis Gutierrez for the past month has barely been able to contain himself, running around predicting Obama is gonna grant amnesty to at least five million illegal immigrants already in the country by Labor Day, which is Monday. He has been all over the place. He's been smiling. He's been giddy. It's been Christmas morning every day for the past five weeks, and he's been out there telling everyone, "We gotta get ready. We gotta gear up. We gotta prepare for this," and he has been working with the godfather, and that would be Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Rahm and Luis Gutierrez are saying they want Chicago to be the model for immigrant benefits, a model for immigrant benefits. That word "benefits" is a pet peeve of mine. It's a red flag. It's a warning sign. Obama talks about it all the time. Obama, when he's making speeches to groups of people, he always -- not always -- but often references their benefits and how they should do what they have to, to get their benefits. As though benefits are an entitlement unto themselves.
Benefits, folks, are things paid for by other people. "Benefits" is income redistribution. "Benefits" is wealth transfers. And benefits are spoken of as an entitlement. And so now in TheHill.com, Chicago Democrats are hoping to make Chicago, which is close to being the murder capital of the country, the model for enrolling illegal immigrants into whatever new benefits the Obama Regime might adopt. Well, then, why work? Why even try to get a job if your sponsors are going to be engaged in setting up the best benefits program ever to be seen in this country? Luis Gutierrez was on Cavuto's show on Fox yesterday. We have three sound bites. Cavuto says, "How is Obama gonna act, Luis? What is he gonna do, Luis?"
GUTIERREZ: Here's what I believe is going to happen. He's gonna say, "God, there's over six million undocumented workers that have been here ten years or more."
CAVUTO: You're tight with the president, you're tight with the White House, so I don't think you'd just say this stuff out of turn. I mean --
GUTIERREZ: No, no, no, it's --
CAVUTO: Have you heard from the White House that it is looking at granting over six million illegals amnesty?
GUTIERREZ: Neil, Neil, Neil. I'm gonna tell you something. Please. Do not tell your viewing audience that I've heard this from the White House. I have not heard this from there. This is what I believe is going to happen. This is what I'm betting is gonna happen.
RUSH: Luis is backing off a little bit here. I'm not kidding. For the past month or so Luis has been making it sound like he's in tight with the Regime and that it's a fait accompli, and it's five million minimum, and it is this weekend. But now Luis is saying, "Wait, do not told your viewing audience that I've heard this from the White House. I've not heard this from there. This is what I believe is going to happen." Cavuto says, "Luis, is this the president's power to do alone, this amnesty, by executive authority?"
GUTIERREZ: He cannot, like a magic wand, grant it to five million people. He can say things like, "I'll give you a work permit for two years until the Congress of the United States finally decides to deal, and then you'll pay your taxes. You'll work legally in the United States for a couple of years," and he grant that for a couple of years to millions of people. I think the president's gonna set a date. Look, it's gonna be a date, I don't know how many years.
RUSH: It's gonna be a date, I don't know how many years, but he's gonna let 'em stay here for two years. But once this is done, it's a fait accompli, it's amnesty, folks. This is what they do not want anybody -- they don't want the word "amnesty" used, 'cause they know that poisons it. And I know this because the sponsors have told me. I have been to private dinners where they've tried to explain to me how it's not amnesty. I'm talking about elected officials.
They've tried to tell me it's not amnesty, and they say, "If you call it amnesty, it's gonna kill it. It's not amnesty, and we're here to tell you it's not amnesty." And they told me what Luis Gutierrez said. "We're not granting 'em amnesty. We're gonna give 'em a work permit, an e-card, some kind of thing here to show the e-card, but it's not amnesty. Don't, damn it, say it's amnesty 'cause it isn't amnesty, you hear me? It's not amnesty! Well, it is, but it isn't." And they go on and on and on trying to tell me it's not amnesty. "We're gonna have work permits while Congress gets its act together." No, no, no, no, no.
See, this is where the Constitution to these people is just a bunch of suggestions, and it isn't. The Constitution is the foundation of law, one of them. Anyway, so their conversation continued 'cause Luis said, "I think the president's gonna set a date. Look, it's gonna be a date, I don't know how many years," and they end up talking at the same time here.
CAVUTO: Tell us when this event you don't know is going to happen is going to happen.
GUTIERREZ: Here's my hope. It will happen before the election.
GUTIERREZ: Sometime in the next 45 days before the election, 'cause I think there should be no political consideration or consequences considered. We should do it 'cause it's the right thing for America to do.
RUSH: It's not the right thing for America. On what basis is it the right thing for America to do? The only way you can say that is if somehow it's our responsibility the way everybody else in the world lives. And if they have a subpar existence, it's our fault, and therefore the right thing for us to do is to make it up to them by letting them come here. On what basis is it the right thing to do to grant amnesty? On what basis is it the right thing to do to ignore the law? But, anyway, Luis is now backing off. Now 45 days, now before the election. He didn't say with Cavuto it's gonna happen this weekend.
RUSH: Russell in Fremont, California. Hi, Russell. Welcome to the Rush Limbaugh program. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Hey, thank you for taking my call. Hey, you kind of stole a little bit of my thunder when you talked about what the president of Mexico said when he met with our Moonbeam here, but that leads into the second part of it. After he said that this is the other Mexico, he went on to say that there are other states that have not evolved as much as California has when it comes to the issues of immigrants. Well, you can read that "immigrants" however you want. And then he went on to also say about those who are still discriminating and so forth, I only have one thing to say for you: The future will pretty much show you your ethical mistake. Time will show we're right. And I would encourage your listeners to read the transcript of what he said, because, as goes California, goes the rest of the nation.
RUSH: Well, wait a minute. Most people aren't gonna do that. Summarize what he said. What did he just say mean?
CALLER: He pretty much is telling us the governors of these states that are opposing immigration reform, get your act together, follow what California's doing. Let people in and go with the flow. Don't fight it. Let Obama have his way.
RUSH: Did he threaten anything?
CALLER: Not so much threaten anything. You could take out a couple words, but to me there's hidden meaning there, pretty much when he says this is the other Mexico and when he said that the --
RUSH: Come on. There is no other Mexico. There's California, which was stolen. And they're gonna get it back.
CALLER: I ran into that years ago in an election precinct where I had said something about the ballot, and this Hispanic gentleman, I said, "You know, I guess we took this from you in the battle, you're pretty much gonna just overrun us," and he kind of just smiled and nodded his head.
RUSH: Well, let me tell you something. When the Mexican president is not alarmed that one-third of his population wants to leave? When one-third, according to polling data, one-third of the Mexican population wants to leave, and here's the Mexican president running around essentially telling us, "And you better take 'em." I think what we're talking about here, folks, we're not talking about immigration. There's something else going on. Maybe call it colonization, but this is stunning to me.
Can you imagine, let us say, for example, that there were a poll in this country produced by the Pew Research Center for People in the Press, and this poll clearly stated that one-third, 100 million Americans wanted to leave, wanted to go somewhere else, what do you think the ramifications would be for the Regime, for the current Regime? I think it's stunning, and the Mexican president is all for it. The Mexican president, the Mexican government's been working with the US government to facilitate this colonization, this immigration. You have ads on the radio or TV in Mexico advising Mexican citizens how to get on the welfare rolls once they get here, food stamps and that stuff.
