Yes, those horrible Republicans — ya know, the “folks” who love war, don’t care if the earth is going to hell in a handbasket because of Global Warming/Climate Change, who hate minorities and want poor people to die — would have deported Barbara Boxer’s mother, if they would have had the chance!

Via CNS News: Sen. Boxer: ‘They Would Have Deported My Mother’

Speaking on the Senate floor Tuesday against the effort by congressional Republicans to prohibit President Barack Obama’s unilateral action to allow millions of illegal aliens to stay in the country and get work permits, Sen. Barbara Boxer said: “They would have deported my mother.

“There are 11 million undocumented folks. Some of those undocumented folks are DREAMers. To me, that is the most important category. They are young people who were brought here when they were children. They know no other home. All they want to do is stay here and give back to America. Republicans want to deport them and their parents. They want to deport the parents of American citizens. I thank God these people were not in charge of Congress when I was growing up or else they might have deported my mother. It took her awhile to get through her naturalization….

….I tried to think of what my life would have been like without my mother. She gave me my conscience. She gave me my values. She gave me all the love and support I needed to pursue my dreams. I am the daughter of an immigrant mother who never graduated from high school. I am a Senator in the U.S. Senate. But they would have deported my mother. I would not be here today if it were not for my mom….”

So, looks like Republicans also hate Moms.

    Boxer was born in Brooklyn in Nov. 1940, to first-generation Jewish immigrants. Quick websearch doesn’t provide when Boxer’s parents came to America, but my guess is the late 1930s, likely as either legal immigrants or recognized refugees. So all those Republicans who died fighting the Nazi evil that chased her parents here were different from Republicans today if I understand her correctly. All those Republicans who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan bear no resemblance to the WWII Republicans, Barbara? You do know that FDR wasn’t exactly a paragon of protecting European Jews. I will never call you Senator.

      Forgot to mention. It’s a Democrat President negotiating with Iran over Iran’s nuclear capability. Republicans are against any closed door agreement and want any proposed agreement to come to Congress for a vote. Question to Barbara: Would your mother stand with Obama or with Republicans concerning a Congressional vote on Iran nuclear agreement?

    Yes Barbara and it is your mother who would be ashamed of you for encouraging people to sneak in to our country when so many Americans are without jobs, in low paying jobs and living on the street. Why do you think we need more new low income people to come here without asking permission and then take the jobs our low-skilled and young people should be working at? Have you seen the damage that has been done to our young people who no longer can develop a work ethic because you and your party have given away their entry level jobs to foreigners? Barbara your mother would be ashamed of you, she came here invited, followed the rule of law and did well for herself and her family.

    Oh, Barbara….did you happen to be one of those at the Dem Convention who booed God and Israel? If you didn’t do it with your lips, did you do it in your heart? Just wonderin’

    If ole Babs got her conscience from her mother, what does that say about her mother?

  5. MaryVal says:

    So if we missed deporting this moron’s mother, can we deport her instead?

  6. Kitten says:

    Wow, that was a bit of a rambling rant by the “Senator”. We know she’s a narcissist, but is she calling herself a “dreamer” now? How about we keep mom, and deport her. Geesh, I thought she was leaving the Senate. Just go already. So sick of these liberals.

  7. strider says:

    It’s just a process for her. She may not even know what she’s saying or care if she does, it just advances the ball.
