As yet, no one with any authority knows who planted the bombs in Boston. But that does not seem to be stopping certain people of a certain political stripe from jumping to conclusions.
LAURA INGRAHAM: This, in my mind, raises all sorts of questions. I mean, again, we don’t know who did this, motivations, all of that. But it is interesting that at this moment — we are considering legalizing or giving regularized status to millions of people. Pretty much none of them have gone through any rigorous background checks, to have a temporary status in the United States. And we don’t — I just think that there are all sorts of security implications aside from the other arguments on immigration — national security implications that we don’t talk about with enough frankness and I think certitude here. We can’t stop every attack, but my goodness, if we had borders that were shut down and we actually had a proper screening process, maybe we could stop some of them.
Hmm, background checks. You know, to make sure that people don’t have a criminal record before we let them do something. Where have I heard her talk about them before? Oh, yeah; she warned us of the danger to our freedom if we do that for gun purchases, but now it’s okay.
So it’s not okay to have a background check if you want to buy a lethal weapon, but if you’re coming in to the country looking for a new life and a new job, we’d better know when the last time was that you rode on the subway with a guy named Abdul.
