Rep. Foxx: ‘I Agree’ That Immigration Equals ‘Invasion’

On a call with constituents today, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) appeared to agree with callers who said that immigration constitutes an “invasion” of the United States and that one way of dealing with illegal immigrants from certain countries is to use a “drag net and round them all up.”

The Statesville Record & Landmark reports:

“My problem is with immigration,” said a caller named Dana. “Except I wouldn’t even call it immigration, I’d call it an invasion.”

Dana went on to say that the present situation qualifies as such because people are coming here from other countries and simply taking advantage of U.S. social programs and taking jobs from Americans.

“I agree with you,” Foxx said.

Here’s an exchange she had with another constituent:

A caller named Lessie said she is troubled by “seeing all these illegals streaming into the country” from “Mexico” and “Afghanistan.” She wondered “how many of them are terrorists.”

Lessie said a solution would be to use a “drag net and round them all up.”

Foxx told Lessie the sentiments she expressed are “very much in the majority.”

In response to a third caller who expressed dissatisfaction with parts of the 14th amendment, Foxx said she’d be willing to sponsor a bill that says birthright citizenship can only be granted to newborns with at least one U.S. citizen parent.

Foxx, a congresswoman since 2005, has been noted recently for her sometimes extreme rhetoric.

Last year she claimed the Democrats’ health care reform legislation would “put seniors in a position of being put to death by their government” and warned that “we have more to fear” from passing it “than we do from any terrorist right now in any country.”
