A Friday caller from Texas surprised conservative Rush Limbaugh with the news that some illegal immigrants he knows don’t want amnesty.
According to the caller, the illegals he spoke to near Lubbock, Texas don’t want to become American citizens because they fear two things happening.
“They’re afraid that the United States government is going to take so much taxes out of their paychecks once they have to pay into the federal income tax,” the caller told Rush.
And they are afraid immigration reform will lead to more illegals entering the country, which would force “competition against cheaper labor.”
Limbaugh was stunned.
“Are you kidding me on this?” Limbaugh asked.
“This is the theater of the absurd. So we have illegals worried that more of them will cause wages to fall and maybe jobs to be lost?”
“Wait until the Republican Party hears about this!” Rush chortled.
“You know, I’d like to be in the room with Steve Schmidt or some Republican walks in to Rubio and says, ‘Hey, you know what? We may have a problem here,’” Rush continued.
Listen here as Rush launched into a fantasy conversation within the GOP that had him cracking up:
