On Wednesday’s The O’Reilly Factor, Ingraham outlined her “reform” of the United States immigration system:
First thing you do is starting deporting people, not by the hundreds, not by the dozens, by the thousands. And that means entire families, not just a father or a mother. But we keep families unified by deporting all people who are here illegally.
She went on to propose that federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies work together to find all of the “illegal aliens.” Next, she’d block all visas to countries who would not repatriate their citizens (including countries in the middle of a civil war, without a government?). Her third step would be ending birthright citizenship.
In addition to punishing companies that would hire undocumented workers and building a wall along the southern boarder, Ingraham also proposed making it impossible to get housing or use banks. And to top all that off, she would deny government services like welfare to people that have undocumented immigrants living in their home.
“Why are you allowed to enter into a rental agreement to live in this country?” she asked. “That should not be allowed. So, there are a lot of common-sense steps that we can take.”
For once, it was O’Reilly who displayed the real “common sense:”
O’Reilly pointed out that “mass deportations” and effectively forcing all immigrants to be homeless would meant that “the Republican Party would become obsolete.”
“You do that kind of a draconian action, mass deportations would be draconian,” he argued. “I think that there is a better way to do it without destroying the Republican Party, which absolutely I believe would happen.”
When drafting a policy, one has to ask what they want to accomplish and they’re going to do if it doesn’t work; amateurs talk philosophy and potential, professionals talk logistics. Laura, who doesn’t talk about either, is little more than fabulist. And a draconian one, at that.
