Paul Broun (R-GA)

Rep. Paul Broun: “Illegal Aliens Are Criminals And We Need To Treat Them As Such.” According to the Huffington Post, “Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on Friday that his fellow conservatives are “getting soft” on immigration enforcement by expressing openness to the legalization of undocumented immigrants — a move that he said would cause a massive increase in unauthorized immigration. […] Ingraham asked the Tea Party congressman whether he, like other members of his party, might support legalization and eventual citizenship for undocumented immigrants. ‘No I’m not, absolutely not,’ he replied. ‘These illegal aliens are criminals and we need to treat them as such. I’m not in favor of giving amnesty to anybody who has broken the law.’” [Huffington Post, 3/22/13]
