Curt Clawson on Immigration

 

 


The law must be followed, but our house is your house

Curt Clawson, in the official Tea Party Express State of the Union response, blamed undocumented immigrants for the plight of 10 million unemployed Americans and emphasized legal immigration. Transitioning to Spanish, he said, "Todos creemos en Dios, la familia, el trabajo, y la libertad. Hay que respetar la ley. Pero, ustedes son bienvenidos con nosotros. Todos somos iguales. Por supuesto. Nuestra casa es su casa," which means, "We all believe in God, the family, hard work, and liberty. The law must be followed. You are all welcome with us. We are all equal. Of course. Our house is your house."

"As we respect our immigration laws--we've also got to be fair to the more than 10 million Americans currently struggling to find good jobs!" Clawson added. "To do this, we need to secure our borders first. This is important for fairness--and security--for all Americans."
