Fox News personality and Religious Right conference fixture Todd Starnes is not happy with recent protests of Donald Trump inCalifornia and Indiana, taking to the Fox website yesterday to pen a column smearing undocumented immigrants as “invaders” and the “enemy” who are “living off our tax dollars” and “causing mayhem in our streets.”
We “used to fight wars” against such “invaders,” he wrote:
There was a time in this nation’s history when having 13 million people breach your border would have been considered an invasion. We used to fight wars over such a hostile act.
But these days instead of repelling the invaders, the Obama administration gave them food stamps, free health care, and a voter registration card .
We’ve been invaded and our government has provided aid and comfort to the enemy.
In both Indiana and California the protesters tried to bully and intimidate law-abiding Americans into silent submission. They tried – but they failed.
You see, the illegals need to understand something – “We the People” will no longer be silent. We will not allow our sovereignty to be violated anymore.
The American taxpayers have reached a boiling point. We are tired of illegals taking American jobs. We are tired of illegals living off our tax dollars. We are tired of illegals causing mayhem in our streets.
And more than anything, we are tired of lawmakers who refuse to defend American sovereignty.
The truth is we don’t know who or what has been coming across our southern border. We don’t know what dangers lurk in our neighborhoods.
Starnes discussed his column with St. Louis radio host Jamie Allman this morning, adding, “I think the American people are just so frustrated with their tax dollars being used to take care of illegals. They see that there are illegals here doing nefarious things; there seems to be one set of laws for them and one set of laws for us. And people are saying, you know what, that’s not right. And the only person that seems to be talking about this and resonating, his message is resonating, is Donald Trump.”
