As we noted earlier, former GOP Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller is launching a new chapter as a right-wing radio host, and recruited an all-star cast of activists to be guests on his show in its opening weeks. Miller set the tone for the program with his very first guest, prominent anti-immigration activist and Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach, who discussed with Miller the “cultural damage” being done by high levels of immigration.
Miller lamented to Kobach that too many people “react with sympathy and empathy” to undocumented immigrants when really President Obama’s executive actions on immigration amount to “the destruction of a nation.”
“If you’ve got a country that doesn’t protect its borders, doesn’t protect the integrity of its people, what do we become?” he asked.
He added that immigration reform would endanger the Second Amendment because “there’s no concept of the Second Amendment in Mexico, people don’t have the right to have guns, they don’t understand the constitutional right here.”
Kobach picked up on the argument, fearing that since “our schools aren’t pushing American culture and our American creed anymore,” immigrants are failing to assimilate, resulting in both “economic damage” and “cultural damage.”
