Rush Limbaugh on Immigration

Conservative Talk-show Host


2005: Mexican illegal immigrants are an invasive species

Limbaugh has expressed contempt for Mexicans and Latinos. Early in his radio career, he explained why a Mexican won the New York marathon: "An immigration agent chased him for the last 10 miles."

In 2005 Limbaugh compared Mexican illegal immigrants to an "invasive species." In 2006 he described them as "a renegade, potential criminal element that was poor and unwilling to work."

Enforce the law, secure the borders, and legalize some

I have never said, whatever number are here illegally, "Round 'em up and deport 'em." It isn't realistic. We have to stop the influx. So you can't pose a question to me, "Okay, Mr. Limbaugh, after we secure the borders..." the borders are key. And then we come up with a plan, I could give you two or three of them that would help legalize these people if they're willing to assimilate. We don't want a Balkanized America, and that's what this is leading to. It's just a matter of following the law
