William Gheen: 'If You Don’t Respect The Boundaries Of Countries, Why Would You Respect Boundaries Of Other People Sexually?'

William Gheen isn’t saying “that every illegal immigrant is a rapist or murderer,” but he does have to ask: “If you don’t respect boundaries of countries, why would you respect boundaries of other people sexually or anything else?”

The Americans for Legal Immigration PAC founder was a guest on LA’s “McIntyre in the Morning” May 14 to discuss his recent interview with the LA Times about efforts to make it easier for undocumented immigrants to obtain professional licenses.

Gheen argued to host Doug McIntyre that a very small number of undocumented immigrants “were brought here as little bitty babies” and that the rest “made a choice to invade this country, break in here, disrespect our laws, disrespect borders.”

“If you don’t respect boundaries of countries, why would you respect boundaries of other people sexually or anything else?” he asked.

Gheen has long sought to paint undocumented immigrants as innately criminal, an effort that was given a boost last week by a hugely flawed report from the Center for Immigration Studies .

Gheen: A very, very small percentage of the millions of illegal immigrants in California and across the country were brought here as little bitty babies across the border. But that’s what they do to try to say, ‘Oh, look, here’s a person that had no choice whatsoever over this.’ Ninety-nine percent of the illegal immigrants walking around in this country made a choice to invade this country, break in here, disrespect our laws, disrespect borders. And you have to understand, boundaries and borders are very important because when you’ve got a person who’s willing to – you know, 99.9 percent of Americans do not go out there violating the boundaries.

McIntyre: Well, if you don’t have control of your borders, you’re not a nation. It’s that simple.

Gheen: If you don’t respect boundaries of countries, why would you respect boundaries of other people sexually or anything else? And that doesn’t mean that every illegal immigrant is a rapist or murderer.

McIntire: Yeah, we know that.

Gheen : We have a lot of people who are being killed.
