On the June 18 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Neal Boortz advocated building a "double fence along the Mexican border, and stop the damn invasion." Boortz continued: "I don't care if Mexicans pile up against that fence like tumbleweeds in the Santa Ana winds in Southern California. Let 'em. You know, then just run a couple of taco trucks up and down the line, and somebody's gonna be a millionaire out of that."

On the June 11 edition of his show, a caller asked, "Why can't we just load them on planes and keep on loading them until they're back?" Boortz later responded, "We're not gonna throw these people out of airplanes with taco-shaped parachutes."

Neal Boortz is a nominee for the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame 2007 Career Achievement Award.

From the June 11 broadcast of Cox Radio Syndication's The Neal Boortz Show:

CALLER: How can George Bush make a statement that we cannot send them back? Why is that not possible? We have more power than any other country in this world, and we have more airplanes than any country in this world. Why can't we just load them on planes and keep on loading them until they're back?

BOORTZ: OK. I'll give you one practical answer to that. You load illegal aliens on a plane, and then all the Mexican government has to do is deny that plane permission to land in Mexico.

CALLER: Ever hear of parachutes?

BOORTZ: Uh-uh. [Caller], that's not gonna happen. We're not --

CALLER: I know that.

BOORTZ: We're not gonna throw these people out of airplanes with taco-shaped parachutes. They will -- I'm sympathetic with your point of view. They will self deport.

CALLER: Right, right.

From the June 18 broadcast of Cox Radio Syndication's The Neal Boortz Show:

BOORTZ: I mean, it's clear. There is no intent to shut the border down. None. If there was, they [Congress] would do what the American people want them to do: pass a law, appropriate the money, and fund it -- to build a double fence along the Mexican border, and stop the damn invasion. I don't care if Mexicans pile up against that fence like tumbleweeds in the Santa Ana winds in Southern California. Let 'em. You know, then just run a couple of taco trucks up and down the line, and somebody's gonna be a millionaire out of that. But there's no intent in this -- what, taco truck -- OK -- I gotta -- I gotta tell you why that's a -- back in a moment.
