Jim DeMint: Immigration reform will cost Americans trillions

Former South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint argued on Sunday that implementing immigration reform as proposed by the “Gang of Eight” would “cost Americans trillions of dollars.”

“The study you’ll see from Heritage this week presents a staggering cost of another amnesty in our country and the detrimental effects long term that that will have,” Mr. DeMint, president of the Heritage Foundation, said on ABC’s “This Week.”

The “media” and the politicians are saying that “americans” are demanding that this amnesty bill be passed quickly without taking the time to think it through and identify the consequences. Are “americans” really that stupid or are the “media” toads and foghorn politicians lying to us?

In my view the guy has completely lost it, he should go because he’s embarrassing himself and doesn’t realize it.

What could be their (true) twisted motive to promote this bill? It feels like the t-word.

Cost has never been the issue—it is putting the final nails in the GOP coffin.

Thanks for the ping. Jim has been and will always be a fav.

Unfortunately, the Senator Jim DeMint ping list has become inactive.

Even worse than trillions, it would cost us our country.

The best historical example of how a country got overwhelmed by illegal immigrants is South Africa. Look what happened to them. By the time elections for Nelson Mandela took place, the great majority of the election participants were illegal immigrants.

Rubio’s Facebook is full of post after post of “NO AMNESTY” comments. Very few positives. They are simply ignoring the will of the people, and pretending everyone’s an enthusiastic supporter. We need to shut the capitol down repeatedly until they get the message.

That's the most appropriate description I've seen for the turkeys.

This stupid and evil bill could be derailed. Someone on the right such as DeMint could propose to what basically amounts to an open labor market for Israelies to work in the USA. This is politically feasible and palatable except for the fusion charateristics of jewish paranoia and the other race hustlers pushing for colonization projects. We don’t millions of low paid subsidized labor just so Mark Zuckerberg can go to a family get together and not be chastized for not helping his people.

A good cartoon about the GOP and Lucy. I don’t think the GOP primary voters will ever figure out they have been had ad nauseum.
