LAURA INGRAHAM: So there will have to be a significant American engagement. See then we're going to start talking numbers -- we're going to start talking how many. At what cost? And I think Republicans ought be very careful because I don't sense there's a great appetite for the American people to continue to have their own standard of living compromised in order to fight more wars in the Middle East -- their kids' standard of living, their kids' ability to have a decent job and not be saddled with massive debt. I think if you actually have credibility on defending the homeland and stopping the flow of the illegal immigrants crossing the border -- many of those people, who knows how many of those people, could be radicalized already, could be ISIS. We don't know. We have no idea who these people are. And ironically, over the weekend, we have refugees dropping into New Orleans.
Seventy thousand Syrian refugees coming into this country. It takes five Syrian refugees, or one Syrian refugee who's already hooked up with ISIS to hook up with some jihadi cell in the United States to slaughter Americans on our streets. It doesn't take much, does it?
The question on the table is, war in the Middle East, home front, secure it at home. A combination of targeted military action on a multilateral basis, with a beefed up homeland defense in our country, a common sense protection of our borders, and stopping this massive handout of visas to people who want to come into this country, at least from Muslim countries. Have to stop this. We cannot give them the gun to shoot us with, give them the noose to put around our necks. This is not a suicide pact here, this being a member of the global community is not a suicide pact for us. None of us voted for this.
