RUSH: I’m not quite through with this immigration stuff before we get to the financial stuff. It seems to me, ladies and gentlemen, that Obama and the Democrats are demonizing government employees. Aren’t the governor and legislators of Arizona who passed this bill, government employees? Are they not? And who the hell is out there demonizing them? Where’s Bill Clinton when you need him? We got state employees and government employees being beaten as pinatas! The governor is being beaten with her face on a pinata. Where’s Clinton when you need him? Where’s all the concern about the violence that might visit these state government employees? I don’t see any concern for that. Wasn’t there a push — I know there was because we satirized it, a push mostly from liberal Democrats — to give illegals identification back in 2007. It came up during the campaign. So they could have some form of ID so they could open bank accounts. In other words, we wanted illegals to have papers! And we satirized it with the Bank of Amigo…
(Bank of Amigo parody)
RUSH: Yeah, so we were going to give ’em identification so they could open bank accounts. We were going to give them papers!
RUSH: Bob in Chicago, welcome to the EIB, sir. Great to have you with us.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: You bet. You bet.
CALLER: I have a comment regarding this immigration bit. I’m a small contractor in the Chicago area. I’ve been here for 25 years.
RUSH: Are you still in business?
CALLER: I’m still in business. Last year I made under $40,000, and for two years I have hired an illegal, unknown to me. He provided documentation for me, full documentation, which I kept on file, and when I sent him a W-2 form I got a letter back from the government that it’s incorrect. Now, I have a potential of being fined because I had someone illegal working for me, and I was told that it’s my obligation to check this man out to see if he is illegal or not.
RUSH: You mean you were to check his papers.
CALLER: I was to check his papers. I was to call immigrations here in Broadview —
RUSH: And you did check his papers and he had apparently what were legal papers, right?
CALLER: I looked at his papers, they looked fine to me. I made copies of them, I have them on file here, and he told me, ‘You want new papers? I get you new papers tomorrow.’ For $125 they can get a full set of papers in the Chicago area, get a driver’s license, Social Security card, and green card.
RUSH: That’s what Obama taught ACORN to do, yeah.
CALLER: I don’t know if ACORN had anything to do with it —
RUSH: Oh, don’t doubt me. I mean if ACORN’s willing to set up brothels for imports from Central America, I mean they’ll sure as hell come up with fake IDs and driver’s licenses for them.
CALLER: Well, the facility that provides this paperwork is within about four miles of Obama’s home in Chicago. So you can’t tell me that they were not aware of it. So it very well could be that ACORN has something to do with it, but —
RUSH: Oh, come on, whether it’s ACORN or some other name. It’s a community agitator bunch. We got the videotape of these clowns openly assisting a pimp set up a whorehouse for illegal alien females from Central America.
CALLER: So now I have the potential of being fined $10,000 —
RUSH: What happened when you sent the W-2 to the guy, was he not there? How did the government find out that the guy wasn’t real?
CALLER: Because the W-2 form went out and that’s how they identified it because the name on the card did not correspond with the number.
RUSH: Okay, so identity theft. Identity theft. LifeLock, identity theft is what happened to you. Now, you’re up for the ten-grand fine even though you’re the one scammed.
RUSH: To the phones! Dick. Back to Arizona, he’s in Tucson. Welcome to the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Rush it’s a great honor to speak with you.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: I’m a first-time caller. I’ll try to get to the point real quickly here. I’m a 62-year-old resident of Green Valley, Arizona, just about 30, 40 miles from the Mexican border. What we’re seeing down here is an absolute travesty — and, frankly, I’m very, very disappointed in our lawmakers both in Washington and locally. But I’m really hoping that your listeners that support our cause down here push back. Our economy has suffered enough. What we’d like to see is a boycott… You know, if San Francisco and California in general is going to boycott us, then your listeners ought to boycott maybe the wineries in California. I’m all for taking my California wines and pouring them out in the desert.
RUSH: Well, you know, that’s not a bad idea. I think you need to — and please don’t misunderstand this. But the premiere boycott leader in the country is Bill O’Reilly. He brought France to its knees not long ago, and if anybody could succeed in a boycott of the wine country in California — you don’t have to call O’Reilly. I’m sure he’ll hear about this, but he’s got the power, the wherewithal. He’s got the guts to do it.
CALLER: I’ve called just about everybody I can think of: Just come down here for a week and walk through the desert. Last weekend I walked through the desert: 200 sleeping bags, backpacks, blankets, cans, bottles of water, within about, oh, probably a five mile area. And, you know, you go out there, you pick all this crap up —
RUSH: And this was not people on vacation.
CALLER: — and a week later it’s backs out there.
RUSH: Yeah. This was not Arizonans on vacation, right?
CALLER: Not to my knowledge. (laughs)
CALLER: No. Heh-heh. It’s people coming through and bringing their stuff.
RUSH: Here’s what I think. Like I said earlier, I think the governor needs to call a press conference and announce all the places in San Francisco where people on welfare get their benefits. Give ’em a map. Just print up a map of San Francisco: This is where you go if you want this. This is where you go if you want that, and a press conference for illegal aliens and then give them all a one-way travel voucher on Greyhound or Amtrak to get them to San Francisco. I mean, it’s a ‘sanctuary city’ and all that. Dick, thanks for the call out there.
