On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Monday, host Mark Levin ripped the Left for their onslaught against Donald Trump’s executive order on refugees saying, “Nobody has a right, of any kind, to come into America – none.”
“Nobody has a right, of any kind, to come into America – none,” said Mark Levin. “Now I know the crackpot ultra-Libertarians and the crackpot ultra-Leftists seem to think that people can come willy-nilly, but they’re wrong. That’s never been American history, and no nation can survive that. None. That’s why no nation does it. None.”
Below is a transcript of Levin’s comments from his show:
“Now, let’s start from the beginning so I can unravel all of this and then ram it down their throats.
“What’s the purpose of government? Its primary purpose is to secure America and to protect the life, liberty and property of the American people. I said, the American people.
“What’s the purpose of immigration? It is to improve America, to improve America.
“No society is immortal. None. No nation is immortal. None.
“And yet, there are people who keep preaching the transformation of America. They’ve been eviscerating our Constitution. They are eviscerating our borders, and they’re doing the latter through immigration. They lecture us about the Constitution.
“Foreign citizens who’ve never set foot in America don’t have constitutional rights. Seven billion people who aren’t Americans don’t fall within the jurisdiction of our Constitution or our statutes.
“Nobody has a right, of any kind, to come into America – none.
“Now I know the crackpot ultra-Libertarians and the crackpot ultra-Leftists seem to think that people can come willy-nilly, but they’re wrong. That’s never been American history, and no nation can survive that. None. That’s why no nation does it. None.
“All you’ve heard today is about the poor, would-be immigrant – not the actual immigrant – the poor, would-be immigrant from seven countries, six would be for a four-month temporary ban, not permitted to come into the country. In Syria it would be indefinite, until the situation settles down.
“And you would have thought Donald Trump was Franklin Delano Roosevelt. You would have thought Trump was rounding up Muslim-Americans and Americans of Muslim decent, ordering his military to issue an order like 9066, rounding up Muslim-Americans and bringing them to internment camps in the center of the country.
“Did he do that? No.
“No, he didn’t do that.
“He hasn’t violated anybody’s rights. He hasn’t violated anybody’s due process. There aren’t any rights. There isn’t any due process. The people aren’t even here yet. The people aren’t even here yet.
“And they say this is un-American. What’s un-American. There’s nothing un-American about this.
“I don’t know what the courts will do now, but in the past the courts have upheld every single syllable of what Donald Trump did with his executive order.
“Nobody has a right to come into this country. Nobody has the right to demand to come into this country. I don’t give a d--- what their faith is, or their race, or their ethnicity.
“This country belongs to the American citizen. The citizen of America comes first, not the citizen of Yemen, or Libya, or the Sudan, or Iran, or all the rest of it.
“The problem we have, ladies and gentleman, is that we have people who are trying to blow up our cities and cut the throats of your children, and we can’t simply identify them because they won’t self-identity. They don’t wear scarlet letters.
“They’re terrorists. And terrorists, unlike a standing military, secrete themselves among the people. They hide among the people in order to slaughter the people. So when you have people coming into this country from parts of the world where we cannot be sure who they are because there’s no effective government, or there’s a hostile government, or there’s no effective database, what’s a president of the United States supposed to do? ‘Hey, come on in. We’ll ask you 12 questions.’ And that will be that.
“Trump is trying to prevent carnage in the United States of American citizens on his watch, and he’s being brutalized for it. He’s being attacked for it.
“I’ve never seen anything so disgusting.”
