Hearings on immigration

The "hearings" being conducted about immigration are about as ridiculous as you might expect. Although the guest worker program and potential avenues of legalization were the most contentious issues, Republicans have ignored these and instead have a single message: we're being overrun by terrorists.

"Border vulnerabilities are opportunities for terrorists"

"Immigration reform must be national security reform"

"Terrorists and violent criminals may exploit smuggling routes used by migrants to enter the United States illegally and do us harm"

"Reducing illegal entries across our borders is now, more than ever, a matter of national security"

"Homeland security rests in large part on border security"
