On his radio show Wednesday, nationally syndicated radio show host Mark Levin discussed illegal immigration saying, “Enough is enough. Seal the d--- border.”
“Are we as a nation, as a people, allowed to say enough is enough, ladies and gentlemen?” Levin said. “Because enough is enough. Enough is enough. Seal the d--- border. Just seal it. We need at least 20 years of assimilation.”
In this monologue, Levin referenced a report done by Steven Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies which said that “immigration over the last two years reached 3.1 million, or more than 1.5 million annually.” Levin also noted that the number of illegals surged to at least 550,000 in 2014 and 2015.
A transcription of Levin’s comments is below:
“Camarota’s 17-page analysis said that immigration over the last two years reached 3.1 million, or more than 1.5 million annually. In the prior two years, 2012 to 2013, 2.3 million arrived at about 1.1 million each year.
“And yet notice, ladies and gentlemen, the number of illegal immigrants never changes. ‘It’s about 11 million, maybe 12.’ For the last 20 years: ‘Its 11 million, maybe 12. 11 million, maybe 12.’ I don’t think so. It’s got to be higher.
“But the number of illegals was shocking, surging at least to 550,000 in 2014 and 2015, up from 350,000 in 2012 and 2013. That’s the size of Albuquerque, New Mexico!
“Are we as a nation, as a people, allowed to say enough is enough, ladies and gentlemen? Because enough is enough. Enough is enough. Seal the d--- border. Just seal it. We need at least 20 years of assimilation.
“And I don’t care if people say we have to have these workers, to help us. Screw that. There are plenty of people in this country, citizen and non-citizen, who can work the fields.
“How many people are working the field? How much lettuce? First, well, I don’t even like lettuce! Oh, sorry, sorry! Ah, we need more. Pick lettuce. Pick lettuce.
“Do we need 11 million people to pick lettuce? No we don’t! And they’re not all picking lettuce, are they ladies and gentlemen?
That’s right, many of them came here violating our visa laws. They didn’t get visas to pick lettuce, most of them. They got visas to teach, to be students, to be entertainers, to be all kinds of things.
“And they won’t get the hell out! And they should get the hell out because they violated our law.”
