Michele Bachmann (R-MN)

Bachmann Said Illegal Immigrants Were “Bringing In Diseases, Bringing Drugs, Bringing In Violence.” According to Star Tribune, “Bachmann called that remark ‘highly offensive, especially for the families who are victims, not only just here in Minnesota but all across America’ and said illegal immigrants were ‘bringing in diseases, bringing in drugs, bringing in violence.’” [Star Tribune, 10/17/08]
