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.
