Updated about 1:00PM: Republican congressional candidate is now responding on Twitter and confirms his position on not just amnesty, but U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens.
Updated again, 3:00 PM: Corbin has blocked me on Twitter.
More on Michael Corbin.
The below note was part of an email sent here from a GA07 voter.
“Mike Corbin Quote on “Naturalize Them” we pulled from the GA7 Candidate Forum April 22: (We believe it’s word for word, but the audio quality was horrible).
“For me, it’s pretty easy… I don’t believe in sending troops to the border.
I think it’s a slippery slope and just think we need to change our policies.
We need to have a policy on how do we get these people legal and it needs to be okay that there is a path and a process to get them back into legal status.
Are you gonna just kick em out?
I mean how many people do you think that’ll affect?
The way is to naturalize them. Stop it. Stop the Bleeding. And find a way to naturalize the people who are here.”
We note that Corbin’s proposal isn’t merely to legalize “them” – but to make “them” U.S. citizens with the privilege to vote.
We don’t know if this guy knows about the failure of the one-time amnesty of 1986 and we don’t know why he would want to create 11-20 million-ish new Democrat voters. But he sounds a lot like a Democrat.
