Once it’s done, it’s done. The question is, how do we stop it?
CALLER: Look, what Obama’s trying to do with amnesty by granting legalization and amnesty to five million illegals, while it sounds terrible, I think it really is a great opportunity for this nation, especially conservatives. What we can do is this. As soon as he announces it, let’s say, “Go ahead and do it,” and we’ll make sure that all of these illegals know that in two years and two months, we will reverse this amnesty, and they will become illegals again.
RUSH: No, that’s never gonna happen.
CALLER: We’ll have their name and address.
RUSH: He can’t hear me ’cause of our phone system. I’m not being rude, and I don’t want to be rude. But there’s no reversing this. This is not like a piece of legislation that you might think you could repeal or vote out or whatever. You can’t reverse this. We’ve never, ever reversed an amnesty. And, by the way, we’ve never repealed an entitlement, either. Well, that’s not entirely true.
This is a senior citizens Medicare one. Dan “Rosty” Rostenkowski did that. But that happened within days, not years. But there’s no upside to this. A, it’s lawless. We don’t want to applaud lawlessness. There is no political advantage in letting Obama be lawless. We already won an election. We don’t need any more evidence to win an election. “Yeah, let him do this, and it will guarantee us 2016!”
I respectfully have to shut down that kind of thinking. This is ballgame here. Obamacare and this are ballgame, in terms of the transformation of this country. Now, you might think, “Well, Rush, but we’re gonna know who they are!” They’re gonna play games with this, by the way. They’re not gonna say it’s amnesty. They’re gonna say we’re just not gonna deport ’em.
“We’re just taking deportation of these 4.5 or 5 million off the table and therefore they can come out of the shadows, and therefore we will know who they are.” In two years, when we win it all, then we can round ’em up and send ’em back? That’s not gonna happen. There’s no way that is going to happen. This thing has to be stopped, and there are ways.
