Democratic State Representative and candidate for U.S. representative Pat Murphy said Tuesday that if the underage migrants who have come to the U.S. from Central America arent given a pathway for citizenship they could become terrorists.
Speaking with Iowa Public Radio host Ben Kieffer, Murphy said that we need to make sure that we take care of the children that are coming up here.
Theyre not from Mexico, theyre coming from further south, Murphy continued. We need to make sure that when were talking about these children we need to treat them like theyre our children or our grandchildren. If theyre gonna be refugees, which several of them are going to be, we need to make sure that we haveone, we take care of them, and we create a pathway for citizenship and set up education for them so they dont become the same problem that were currently having in the Middle Eastthat theyll be terrorists a generation from now.
Murphy has represented Iowas 99th district in the Iowa House of Representatives since 1989, and earlier this summer won the Democratic nomination for congressman representing Iowas 1st. Murphy, who has called himself a liberals liberal, was endorsed by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, the political action committee famous for drafting Elizabeth Warren to run for Senate and instigating Scott Walkers recall election. He supports expanding Social Security benefits, holding Wall Street accountable, lowering student loan interest rates, and Elizabeth Warrens economic populist agenda, read their endorsement.
Murphys comments came the same day that ISIS released the gruesome video of an unknown terrorist beheading American journalist James Foley, and threatening to kill another. U.S. and British intelligence officials now think that the murderer is from the United Kingdom.
From what weve seen it looks increasingly likely that it is a British citizen, said Prime Minister David Cameron Wednesday. Now this is deeply shocking. But we know far too many British citizens have travelled to Iraq and travelled to Syria to take part in extremism and violence.
Murphy said he supports the immigration reform bill that passed in the Senate last year, which creates a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and also implied that its too expensive to deport illegals anyway.
There is no way that I can see that this state is going to move 13 million undocumented workers back to the countries they came from. We saw what went on in Postville in this district, back insix or eight years ago. We spent approximatelyI think it was $230,000 for each person that we deported from the Postville plant, he said.
Murphy was referring to the arrest of nearly 400 undocumented workers after Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials raided a meatpacking plant in Postville, Iowa. Most of the workers arrested were deported within the year.
Murphys campaign was reached out to for comment, but has not yet provided a statement.
That someone would say this, in fear, is something the no-borders people only dreamed of 20 years ago. It’s a matter of numbers.
Well, if they turn terrorist, we know how to deal with them.
No, I don’t mean governmental authorities, I mean us.
You’re the terrorist pal. You refuse to enforce existing law and hold this country hostage to your political demands.
Leaving our borders uncontrolled means you are an ally of ISIS.
Give a screaming toddler his candy or he’ll tear down the housr!
Well, if that’s the only choice we have, I guess it’s time to start shooting them at the border.
Extermination of the Illegal Obama Wetbacks had to happen sooner or later.
Idiot. They’ll most likely become terrorist whether we grant them amnesty or not.
They are already criminals.
My word...why aren’t liberals embarrassed by their representatives...?
I can understand someone being a liberal, brain damaged is a terrible thing, but to be so freaking stupid and elected repeatedly is hard to fathom...
I mean you can be a liberal and also have intelligence above a door knob...
And yet, Murphy is likely to be the next US Congressman from northeast Iowa.
If they get hungry they will leave.
Well then I guess it’ll be ok to just shoot them then. Open season on terrorists, problem solved.
Again, it’s all America’s fault to these leftist turds.
Horse before the cart.
Yea...after they deal with the government authorities.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
