CHERTOFF: ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS CAUSING GLOBAL WARMING, ACID RAIN, DESTRUCTION OF WETLANDS AND OTHER HORRIBLE THINGS

Rate this Entry

Well, he didn't exactly say that. But he did say this in response to a question about the damage a border fence could do to the environment:

"Illegal migrants really degrade the environment. I've seen pictures of
human waste, garbage, discarded bottles and other human artifact in
pristine areas," Chertoff said in a telephone interview with The
Associated Press. "And believe me, that is the worst thing you can do
to the environment."

The worst? Puhleeze. I know this is an immigration blog, but this President generally is regarded as a complete failure when it comes to the environment and Chertoff's answer is simply embarrassing. But I'm sure it will lead on Lou Dobbs tonight.

    Well perhaps if there was a good Temporary guest worker program, a not broken immigration system that does not allow for many people to immigrate through the proper channels. Then there would not be a need to waste money on this ridiculous wall and people would not have to cross through the border leaving waste behind. As if the Bush administration had any moral authority when it comes to the environment

    Well, I'm not surprised that global warming is now "illegal's" fault too. This morning I heard Laura Ingram getting all worked up because she fears that illegal immigrants are going to bring the **** fever to the US, this illness has killed hundred apparently in South America. If conservatives would have been against the Iraq war, they would blame the war on the undocumented too. And it doesn't stop here......just two days ago I heard another top radio host talking about Hillary Clinton's idea of giving $5000 to every baby born in the US, and guess what this conservative host said.......he said, "This would just redefine the term Anchor Baby." Oh Yes.......now the illegal's will come here, have babies, just not only to get legal status, but also to get $5000. Maybe it's a game they are playing, something called, "lets see how many troubles we can link to the illegals, and the conservative to come up with the longest list will win."

    I don't agree with any radio talk show host, I listen just so I can be amazed at how low some of these losers can get.....however some of these conservatives host are on the right side and Michael Medved is one of them, al though I disagree with him most of the time, he was right on the mark yesterday when he stated that most in his republican party fail to realize that the undocumented that his party puts down on a daily basis have US citizen kids, by the millions, and those kids will grow up one day and vote, do you think by any chance they will forgot how the Republicans treated their parents? I think not.

    Check this article it seems that Lou Dobbs is recruiting Black antis in his agenda against Immigrants with some success. Its terrible that they did not get the message on racism and is obviously not all African Americans but I guess some check it out.

    who blames illegal aliens for global warming...in the mind of al gore its everyones fault right? because we all throw 2,000 lbs of garbage on the ground when were traveling the immigration highway. yeah, im pretty sure i haven't walked down that path lately. and who said katrina was anyones fault. katrina was bound to happen and the government just sat on their behinds as impoverished persons sucked welfare checks from them. katrina and immigration are two separate issuses and if you don't think the illegals dumping their babies dirty diapers, thousands of plastic trash bags, and millions of other items on the beautiful sonoran desert has no affect on global warming and climate change then you are blind...oh and for the record the only people that benefit from higher minimum wage are the people working at mcdonalds. have you seen the increase on everything everywhere. hmm..i don't think my hourly wage was raised...but i still have to pay because the good frycook at mcdonalds wanted 1.25 more so they don't have to go to school and have any goals. i get it now...the country is going to crap and no one wants to say anything. yep its all coming together..i don't think many are going to sit around much longer and wait for the change. you better be ready for a revolution..because the way the countries swaying we're all going under the fires of hell.

    This is just another area to appease the people on Immigration Issues. I hope you aren't falling for this crap.

    The Republican and Democratic Party has had a good decade, both parties, to get the Immigration Issues under control.

    But do they? No.

    To much influence from everyone to Big Businesses, Big Corporations, Big Lobbiest, Big News Media (and their continuous disinformation and purposeful lies to the American People).

    ***Today on Weekend Live, Fox News announced that Ron Paul has hit the $12 million dollar mark for the 4th quarter of campaign funding.

    ***Then later in the show, Talking about McCain and showing the Republican Partys Polls for Iowa and Maine, the campaign manager for McCain questioned Fox News about the 6.6% polling for McCain.

    ***He claimed it was way higher. Fox came back on with an apology to the chairman, stating he was right. It wasn't 6.6% , but more like 16.6%???

    ***Fox News Purposely lied.

    ****How does that make you feel America, being purposely lied to, to help those big corporate presidential representatives candidates?

    ****Again, How can we believe these disenformationists with all their polls? As we know, the Republican Party in Iowa is going to keep out Ron Paul, of the ticket, unless he hits 5%.

    *****Fox News had Paul in Iowa at 4.8% Hummm and in Maine, had him at 4.6%. Could they have lied about Paul like they did about McCain?

    ****Could we add another 10% to Pauls polls?

    ****Remember, this guy supposidly has no poll numbers, but for someone with no polling numbers, he has already broke the Republican One day, funding Record.

    ****Maybe the lies and disinformation being perpetrated by news medias is more from the big lobbiest and corporations that are getting scared of the one man that most Americans support.

    ****Maybe they are scared of the Military, getting tired of dying for the big corporate lobbiest, etc.. for their greed and wealthy.

    Keep on the good fight America. Even though you can see that there are now, no news agencies that can be trusted any more.

    P.S. If you remember right, it was Sean Hannity that discredited his own poll, when Ron Paul won the voting. He called his own poll "silly", because "ALL THE RON PAUL KOOKS JAMMED THE PHONES".

    Come one America, you can't be that nieve????

    Why do we As Americans, put up with the Purposeful Lies and Disinformation from those in CNN, MSNBC, FOX NEWS, etc...

    Especailly, SEAN HANNITY. This guy couldn't tell the truth if it hit him in the face.

    Yet, because he is probably in the pocket of Big Business, like the one that runs Fox News, he can get away with all thisB.S. he tries to sell.

    Paul is the most popular, American voters, candidate. No lobbiest or corporation backing, just plain old hard working americans.

    I believe that scares those big whiggs in charge.

    God Bless the military, american citizens, and God Bless America.

    www.republicanforaday.com to see the real truth and spoken words from this doctor and veteran, Ron Paul.

    No More disinformationalist people. No more ignorant political party sheep. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!

    Sean Hannity is so intellectually devoid it hurts. This tool is programmed with a few sentences and that is all that he can regurgitate. You're a great American. You don't even know me you moron.

    illegal immigrants may qualify for programs but such as food stamps etc etc but b/c of their illegal status they can't get the majority of the things
    "politicians are killing america" is saying. You have to have some type of status for SSI, foodstamps and so forth. The only thing that illegal immigrants can benefit from are state health insurance for their children (b/c it is said to be inhumane to not give healthcare to children and it is a human right according to amnesty). Yes the children go to public school and benefit from those things as well; but if the person does fill an income tax return their money goes into that school as well just like everyone and the economy.

    Now if conservatives actually had let the DREAM ACT pass we could of fixed one part of the illegal immigration problem. And worked our way towards other parts of this issue. Instead they voted against it saying that we need a bigger solution. We will never find a bigger solution, you have to start with small parts first because every one comes from a different situation. Start with the people that are here first and fix that part of the system and then branch out to fix all of it as a whole. Conservatives want a one size fits all type of solution which will never come.
