Congressman Claims Immigrants Are Turning America Into A ‘Sinking Ship’
By Igor Volsky on Apr 1, 2013
“Why are we even talking about a pathway to citizenship when our borders aren’t even close to being secure?” said Mr. Barletta, vowing to fight a plan that would allow millions of illegal immigrants to compete legally for jobs.But on the other hand Carlos Mencia bashing people is quite alright if he raises money.
“Let’s not take on any more water on this sinking ship,” he said. “Let’s patch the holes. Then we’ll decide what do we do with all this water that’s here.”
APRIL 1ST – Keystone Politics has obtained a copy of a Spanish-language fundraising invitation sent by Republican Congressman Lou Barletta to Hispanic voters in the 11th District inviting them to an event the campaign has titled “¡Un Fiesta Mucho Comedico Con Su Mejor Amiga Lou Barletta!”http://www.keystonepolitics.com/...
The event will feature Honduran-born stand-up comedian Carlos Mencia, the former host of Comedy Central’s sketch comedy series Mind of Mencia.
“I figured that because I’m so good at taking other comedian’s jokes and repackaging them with a Mexican accent, it wouldn’t be hard to do the exact same thing with Republican talking points,” explained Mencia.
It is just too weird for me. A politician of Italian descent hires a Hispanic comedian to reach out to Hispanics after saying "immigrants are sinking the U.S."
I am pretty sure my folks were in America long before his were.
