Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let’s talk about another factor here, that escorting 11 million illegals to the border and kicking them all out is not going to solve, and, no, that doesn’t mean that I’m not for legal immigration and for the policy being enforced. I think it should be enforced by the states and that the Feds have had their try and they’ve totally and completely botched it, so we should revert back to our original federalist principles on this, and the states ought to be doing the enforcing. Check out today’s transcript for the rest….

Mike: Let’s talk about another factor here, that escorting 11 million illegals to the border and kicking them all out is not going to solve, and, no, that doesn’t mean that I’m not for legal immigration and for the policy being enforced. I think it should be enforced by the states and that the Feds have had their try and they’ve totally and completely botched it, so we should revert back to our original federalist principles on this, and the states ought to be doing the enforcing. And if you know that there’s a sanctuary city like

San Francisco and you feel that there may be a risk in going there, then don’t go there. I’m not going to get on a plane tomorrow morning and go to Cairo, Egypt. [mocking] “Well, I have a right to go to San Francisco.” No, you don’t have a right to go to San Francisco. The point being that if local enforcement was our marquee and was our goal, you’d have a better situation than you have today.
The question ought to be asked: Who are the people who are hiring all the illegals? Let’s be honest. Some of you listening to me right now are the people that are hiring illegals. Why do you do it? Some of you are probably going to send me some hate mail today and get very angry with me, [mocking] “How dare you accuse me of that publicly?” Yeah, I accused you. I used your name and I actually accused you. You’re probably doing it because between unemployment insurance, between workers’ compensation, between all the other liabilities that the corrupt, lawyering, legal class has heaped upon business. Combine that with minimum wage. You have environmentalist yelling at you all the time. You have every hell forsaken, agitated group sticking its hands out to business saying: Feed me but I’m not going to do anything to earn it other than make your life miserable, but I’ll make it less miserable if you’ll feed me. That’s the second part of this equation.
I don’t hear anyone — I heard Scott Walker talk about it. Governor Walker did talk about that in the debate. I think it was Walker that said something about the Giza pyramid-sized mountain of regulations. Ask yourself the question: Who benefits from the Giza pyramid-sized mountain of regulations? There are two entities that benefit from that. The first entity are the people that are in charge of enforcing it. No, that’s not Congress; that’s the agency that Congress allows to be created. Gee, I wonder why they would do that. It’s called a jobs program. It was FDR’s idea. It’s John Maynard Keynes’ idea. Keynes at least said you ought to build something with these people if you’re going to hire them. Yes, I’ve got an idea. Let’s build a wall. What a stupendous work project we’ll have.
So the agencies that have to employ millions of bureaucrats, parasites are the first benefactors of this. Who’s the second benefactor of the Giza pyramid-sized pile of regulations? Who? The big businesses, the ones that I described that are kicking their employees to the curb, that are training an entire workforce now with the similar work ethic or edict — it’s not an ethic; it’s unethical — with the ethic that bigger, grander, and more is always preferred to what you currently have. How do you get this? One of the ways to get it, remember the mom-and-pop that we talked about in the beginning, the small business that’s run by the family, close friends, relatives, neighbors, etc.? One of the ways that the big business can benefit from regulations is to force the little business that can’t afford to comply with said regulations to comply with them. You can see this effect in rigging the laws to your favor in the Walmart effect. How many local grocers and butcher shops have been put out of business by the never-ending conquest of the voracious Walden family via Walmart?
You have those two factors and there are other factors. Those are two major factors. Then you have the illegals. The illegal says: Well, they’re hiring. All I have to do is sneak in. I’ve already violated the law. So what if I violate their labor law? I violated their trespassing law to get to be able to violate the labor law. What we’re dealing with, no matter how you slice this, no matter which angle you look at it from, you’re looking at horrible ethics. You’re looking at a moral climate that screams with every fiber of its being that it’s not a moral climate. Deporting tens of millions of people doesn’t fix that. What does fix it? I wish I had the answer. I don’t have the answer. I have the answer but no one is going to — people aren’t going to fancy that answer, so I won’t even hazard it. This is a very large problem and it’s not just a problem of border security. That is a corrupt, simple way, a lazy way to express frustration with the issue here.
There’s another way to talk about this or perhaps put this in terms that may make some sense to those who didn’t get what I just said. Perhaps I was derelict in the duty of explanation there. If you had your choice, if you could choose smaller, less fast-paced, less greedy, simpler world or simpler environment, would you work or prefer to work in the entity A that I described, entity B, or entity C? I think most people by nature are entrepreneurial. I think we suppress our entrepreneurism because it seems: I can just apply my entrepreneurism and loan my skills to him. I’ll help him make a profit and then I’ll get something out of my entrepreneurism. Then we’re back to the corruption of ethics and morals that says: How much is enough? Of course, if you’re ‘Murican, unless you’re owning a building that’s 91 stories tall and living on the 90th floor and the 89th and the 88th, you don’t have enough. What if I want to live on the 87th, too? Most people, I think, would choose entity A. That’s probably not going to happen, and if it does it’s going to be very difficult for entity A to survive in the current climate.
Some of you may be keeping track of what’s going on in the so-called stock market these days. What’s going on in the so-called stock market? We see that the Chinese bubble has finally burst. This should not come as a surprise to most people. I’ll tell you why it shouldn’t come as a surprise to most people. The Chinese are communists, because the Chinese decided that’s some of what they see that’s successful in the West could be utilized by them for certain purposes, they did it, but they still remained Communists who were doing it. Most Americans aren’t full-fledged communists, not yet. We’re working on it. You know that the Chinese have built entire cities that don’t have any people living in them, right? You do know this. They’ve done this as a very arrogant and prideful display for the rest of the world to behold. Look at what the Chinese are doing. Ooh, they’re building all these bridges. They’re building all these power plants. They’re building all these power plants to power what? [/private]
Look at China on a map. It’s larger or as large as — I think it’s larger actually — than the continental United States. Aside from the cities that you know my name, Beijing, Hong Kong — of course, the Brits had Singapore for quite some time but it’s independent now — and some of the other cities, larger cities, China is, by and large after that, very rural, kind of like what ‘Murica was once upon a time. The communists were employing central economic planning. Ok, class, for all of you that are Austrian School economists and proponents and fans and promoters of what we call free markets, what’s going to happen when an economy, especially one that large, is centrally planned? Who’s allocating the resources? It’s not the market. It’s not the price mechanism. What is allocating the resources? Bureaucrats.
My point is that the simplified version of what the problem is with illegals and why they’re here, especially when you’re talking about labor, when you’re talking about job markets and jobs and American manufacturing and this and that and the other, it’s not that simple. There are other things that are at work. When you can answer the question who’s doing the employing and the other questions that I asked, that goes a long way towards understanding it. As a matter of fact, you might even ask the question: Why isn’t the — [mocking] “Oh, it’s the American dream,” or whatever the American Dream is. [mocking] “It’s every man’s to make for himself.” Oh, yeah, that’s not going to be a problem either, is it? What if the American dream was promoted as choice A?
