NPT Capitol: Berman on illegal immigration and abortion

Yesterday, state Reps Leo Berman, R-Tyler and Rafael Anchia, D-Dallas debated about immigration at an event put on by the Texas Employers for Immigration Reform. Angry words were exchanged, including Berman telling a Dallas Lawyer of Chinese American descent to “go home.” [link]

Berman also suggested, as quoted in the El Paso Times, that if $50 million fetuses had not been aborted since 1973, America would have no need for illegal Mexican labor.

While these sentiments are obviously unacceptable for any elected official, let’s pretend for a few moments that the logic is sound: If so, surely Berman is on the wrong track. Instead of less abortions in America, he should support more abortions in Mexico. That way, there wont be a labor surplus. In fact Berman could support gay marriage legislation in Mexico as well – that might also bring down the birth rate.

I’ll suggest this to Berman when I next bump into him at the Capitol. Though being English, I might get told to “go home” as well.

  4. AMERICA GETS EVERY THING BAD THAT HAPPENS TO THEM BECAUSE ITS THEIR OWN DAMN FAULT …..
    SO CONGRESS TOYS AROUND WITH TRYING TO CONTROL OR LEGISLATE OR WHATEVER, AND TO ME THE WHOLE FRIGGIN THING IS A REDICULOUS GESTURE …
    IT STILL COSTS US TAXPAYERS $466 BILLION PER YEAR NO MATTER WHAT THEY B.S. AROUND WITH.

    WHY NOT JUST SIMPLY MAKE A LAW THAT SAYS IF YOUR HERE ILLEGALLY AND GET CAUGHT …IT WILL BE A MANDATORY 3 YEAR PRISON SENTENCE, STRICTLY ENFORCED AND LET THEM GO HOME AND AMERICA TRY TO GET ITS COFFERS BUILT BACK UP AND ON TRACK.
    ALSO TERMINATE ANY CONGRESSPERSON WHO IS ON THE TAKE, TO A MANDATORY 5 YEAR PRISON TERM….
    THEN SIT BACK AND WATCH THE ACTION FROM ALL OVER THE PLACE.
    IT WILL LOOK LIKE A BEE HIVE.
