Paul Broun: Immigration reform "disastrous for anybody who is freedom-loving"

Georgia congressman and Senate candidate Paul Broun has once again lashed out at immigration reform as being destructive to America.

In an interview with the Tea Party Express earlier this month, Broun declared that immigration reform would be "disastrous for Republicans" and "disastrous for anybody who is freedom-loving."

"I think if John Boehner were to press on with comprehensive immigration reform, it will be disastrous for Republicans," said Broun, "not only in this election, but for decades to come. And it would be disastrous for anybody who is freedom-loving and wants to reduce the size of government. I introduced the 'No Amnesty' resolution, which says, 'no amnesty for anyone with any immigration reform.' And we should not have amnesty. We should be a nation that is directed under the rule of law."

Once again, Broun's "logic" is that immigrants will mostly be voting for Democrats.

Which makes sense, given that Broun and co. would greatly prefer it if the immigrants had no voting rights at all.

"I swore to uphold the Constitution against enemies both foreign and domestic," said Broun. "Both political parties today are domestic enemies to the Constitution. I’m fighting those people. I’m a freedom fighter. I’m fighting for liberty and freedom."

What Broun obviously left out is who's liberty and freedom he is fighting for: For himself and invited guests only.
