MO Republican Three-Fer: Abortion + Welfare = Illegal Immigration

Tying together abortion, Illegal-immigration, and welfare... all in the same report! It's a Republican dream, right? Sometimes Bat-Shit Crazy isn't strong enough.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Nov. 13 -- A Republican-led legislative panel says in a new report on illegal immigration that abortion is partly to blame because it is causing a shortage of American workers.

The report from the state House Special Committee on Immigration Reform also says that "liberal social welfare policies" have discouraged Americans from working and have encouraged immigrants to cross the border illegally.

The statements about abortion and welfare policies, along with a recommendation to abolish income taxes in favor of sales taxes, were inserted into the immigration report by Rep. Edgar G.H. Emery (R), the panel's chairman.

All 10 Republican committee members signed the report, while the six Democrats did not. Some of the Democrats called the abortion assertion ridiculous and embarrassing.

These people are lunatics.

  1. If they are going to stretch it that far, they should also consider that if they promoted abortion to the 3rd world, it would lessen immigration.
