“Limbaugh Laws” For Immigration

Don't stop reading!!!  YES, I will be quoting Rush Limbaugh, but I am going to start this by ruining the surprise ending.  Why?  Because I think a lot of you will stop reading because this is something that Rush Limbaugh said.  On April 30th's radio show, Rush Limbaugh elucidated what he called the "Limbaugh Laws" for immigration.  I will provide the excerpt shortly.  But I have to ruin the ending first, so that you'll read the whole thing.  What Rush called the "Limbaugh Laws" are actually taken from the Immigration Laws of the country of Mexico.  You just might be shocked at the restrictive nature of the laws of a country who basically treats America like it's one of their states and tries to tell us how WE should be handling immigration reform.  Here you go:

The following is excerpted from Rush’s transcript:

“All right, immigration proposals under discussion. Let me add mine to the mix. I want to call this proposal the Limbaugh Laws. …First, if you immigrate to the United States of America, you must speak the native language. You have to be a professional or an investor. [America is] not going to take unskilled workers…There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, no government business will be conducted in your native language. Foreigners will not have the right to vote…nor will they ever be allowed to hold political office. According to the Limbaugh Laws, if you're in our country, you cannot be a burden to taxpayers. You are not entitled, ever, to welfare, to food stamps, or other government goodies. You can come if you invest here, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage. If you don't know have that amount of money, you can't come and invest. You have to stay home. If you do come and you want to buy land, okay, but we're going to restrict your options. You will not be allowed to buy waterfront property in the United States. That will be reserved for citizens naturally born in this country.”

“In fact, as a foreigner, you must relinquish individual rights to property… Another thing. You don't have the right to protest when you come here. You're allowed no demonstrations, you cannot wave a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies, or you get sent home. You're a foreigner. You shut your mouth or you get out, and if you come here illegally, you go straight to jail and we're going to hunt you down 'til we find you.”

“I can imagine many of you think that the Limbaugh Laws are pretty harsh. I imagine today some of you probably are going, "Yeah! Yeah!" Well, let me tell you this, folks. Every one of the laws I just mentioned are actual laws of Mexico, today. I just read you Mexican immigration law. That's how the Mexican government handles immigrants to their country.”

And there you have it!  Our fine neighbors to the south have harsh and restrictive immigration laws.  In my wildest ones, I couldn't imagine America having immigration laws like these!!!  And I wouldn't want to SEE laws like this in America!  Most of us are immigrants ourselves or the descendents of immigrants.  It is our UNIFIED diversity that makes us strong and beautiful and wonderful!  Let's just have some semblance of control and order to the process.  Why is that so controversial? 

Sort of unrelated, but certainly important, (and mentioned because you can't own property outright in Mexico unless you are a citizen) I am making a call for America to make laws that only American citizens can own land in America.  Perhaps I will chat on this at a later date.

For now, unless forced (!), I'm done talking about illegal immigration.

    I agree with you on the “Limbaugh Laws”. If we changed our laws to mirror Mexico’s laws, no one could complain. Are you aware of how tight the southern Mexico border is? They are merciless to illegals from central and southern America.

  • Lou (Linda)

    I know! And I don’t understand how they (and by they I mean Vicente Fox and other high profile Mexicans) get away with such vocal hypocrisy!!

  • mikey

    I agree with the law it is not talking about people who come here legally to become citizens but rather the damn people who come over here illegally and commit crimes against americans and take government handouts when they have not paid one damn dime in taxes

    Thank you! And thank Rush! He is much vilified by those who fear and despise the truth. I began listening to him quite sceptically, checking his comments and assertions
    for falsehoods and holes. And I found none. He is solid. His detractors always rely on
    personal attacks, but seem to never find solid ground when it’s time to confront the
    substance of what he says.
    P.S. I come from Immigrant stock. My forebears did it legally. You are all welcome to
    apply. Just don’t shout in our streets that you are “above the law”. You who speak so
    often of “Civil Rights” should know that the phrase means “Citizens’ Rights”. You don’t
    have “Civil Rights” here if you are not a citizen. But, please! you are welcome to apply!

    I agree with all above comments 100%. Perhaps someone should remind the president and Mexican administration of their own immigration laws. I suggest 100% that Mexican immigration laws should be implemented in the US. I am a legal immigrant. The law at my time was the Immigration Law of 1924. God bless that law. I also worked as an interpreter at a US Consulate General in Italy filling out applications. Police records were checked. If an applicant lived in more than one country, he/she had to provide police clearance from each country. Chest X-rays were required as well as medical clearance from an appointed physician so that no contageous diseases were imported. An “Affidavit of Support” was required to prove that the immigrant was not going to become a public charge. All questions in the application had to be answered. God, what happened in the last 60 years? Yes, the Mecian immigration laws must become the law of our land. That is the only way to protect our country. I wonder what the hypocrit Mexican president would say then? Doesn’t Luis Gutierrez, the democrat, know the Mexican law? How dare he talk about racism and civil rights? What civil rights? How dare anybody insinuate that the illegals, who should not be here, have any right to American citizenship? We, the legals, followed the law and waited for our right to become citizens. WE ALSO KNEW THE LANGUAGE. The language is English.

    Thanks for your input. Love love love to hear from those who did it legally! As a nurse I am always concerned about the diseases that are brought into this country. I have been exposed to active tuberculosis more times than I care to recall, nearly ALWAYS from illegals. It will be “our” fault when the populace begins to suffer from diseases that our no longer in our memories…we didn’t do anything to stop it.

    And that’s just ONE concern….

    One of the tragedies of Mexico is that in terms of natural resources it is one of the richest nations in the world. There should be no need for Mexicans to come north to find a better life. The problem is the culture of corruption in Mexico that extends back to colonial times. Mexico inherited this culture of corruption from Spain.
    It’s the reason, for example, why Mexican infrastructure is so sub-standard. Money set aside for projects ends up in someone’s pockets. And its the reason why development of natural resources is so limited. If Mexico ever gets its issues under control and dispenses with its socialist system of government, it will become a great economic power.
