From the June 23 edition of Premiere Radio Network's The Rush Limbaugh Show:
RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): The effort to combine the general population of this country with the current burgeoning numbers of illegal immigrants is outrageous, simply outrageous. For Obama to try to tell people that you and I are no different than the current crop of illegals, well, the difference is back then, people obeyed the law for the most part. I mean people will always break the law, but for the most part, the rule of law triumphed, and illegal immigrants were found and deported. The case was not made for them to stay, but the idea -- that's not even the worst -- the idea that all of us here are no different. We were all illegal at one point, and we were all unwanted at one point. Somebody in our family, if not us, was undesirable, and yet here we are. And this moral equivalence that this president makes is part and parcel of his effort to tear down the greatness and the uniqueness of this country. Make no mistake.
Immigration as promoted by the Democrat Party really is a voter registration drive, pure and simple. It is a desire by the Democrat Party to find another way to remain in perpetual power by creating as many dependent voters as they can. And the best way to create and bring dependent voters in is to bring people that don't have much education, and therefore do not have many skills, and therefore are not as capable as others of providing for themselves. That's the gold standard in immigration if you're a Democrat in 2016, 2002, 2000, as long as this current debate has been raging. That's their objective. There are even some radical leftists who look at it as that but then go further and say because we have been so exclusionary and because it's been so unfair that America has been so rich; it's so unfair that America has been this one place in the world. It's not because of us, and we deserve to pay a price. There are people who want to import the dregs of the world into this country in order to cut this country down to size. Do not doubt me on this. I know it sounds hard to believe. Those people will be found somewhere on the political spectrum, and they vote Democrat.
