Dem Politician: Grant Illegals Amnesty Or They’ll Become Terrorists
dailycaller.com ^ | August 21, 2014

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 aren’t 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.”

“They’re not from Mexico, they’re coming from further south,” Murphy continued. “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.”

Murphy has represented Iowa’s 99th district in the Iowa House of Representatives since 1989, and earlier this summer won the Democratic nomination for congressman representing Iowa’s 1st. Murphy, who has called himself “a liberal’s 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 Walker’s recall election. “He supports expanding Social Security benefits, holding Wall Street accountable, lowering student loan interest rates, and Elizabeth Warren’s economic populist agenda,” read their endorsement.

Murphy’s 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 we’ve 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 it’s 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 in–six or eight years ago. We spent approximately–I 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.

Murphy’s 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.

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.

Well, if that’s the only choice we have, I guess it’s time to start shooting them at the border.

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.

A country without borders isn't a country. It's a tract of land whose inhabitants will eventually either be ruled by the invaders or the victims of a ethnic cleansing... or perhaps both.

But, I guess that's OK as long as one political party gets the votes and political control and the other party gets plenty of money from their financial supporters to pay them off handsomely. Just as long as the Game goes on.

To hell with the real inhabitants. Why should their futures or what they want matter? They're just Serfs.

They sure do dig deep to the bottom of the barrel for their excuses to destroy America, don’t they?

Probably not.

Especially if you include a measure for either common sense or worldly knowledge. Or both.

Just sayin’.

“... if the underage migrants who have come to the U.S. from Central America aren’t given a “pathway for citizenship” they could become terrorists.”

I believe that’s been the plan all along. Even if they are given citizenship; they will still become terrorists.

Sort of like the “British citizens” who are now members of ISIS, Al Qaeda, et al.

Even with the grant of UK citizenship, they were never really “British”. They were always Arab Muslims, living in Britain.

So you’re telling me that we want to make citizens of people who would become terrorists.
