Center For Immigration Studies: Ban Muslim Immigration Because They “Believe in Things Subversive to the Constitution”
In a speech to Tea Party activists in Pearland, Texas, Center for Immigration Studies policy analyst Stephen Steinlight suggested that he would bring back the anti-communist laws to ban all Muslim immigration to the United States.
An audience member asked Steinlight “Which is the quicker ticking time bomb: the illegal immigration through basically just amnesty, or the Muslim infiltration through radicals crossing the border?”
Steinlight replied “Well, good question. I would say that they represent dangers, each in its own way, that are almost equal in their potential to be deeply harmful. I mean, Western Europe is going, if not gone. I don’t know what on earth we can do about Muslim immigration, I really don’t. I mean, if I had my druthers, we would bring back something like the McCarran act in the 50s, which barred communists and fascists on the grounds that they believe in things that are subversive to the Constitution. Well, Muslims believe in things that are subversive to the Constitution.”
Steinlight continued on, as though he had a wealth of evidence to support his claims, saying “we know that from their own writing and we know that from the Holy Land trial in 2008, all the organizations signing a document that said, we will destroy their evil house from inside. And, by the way, as you know, the people who are signatories have that document have been welcomed into the White House, have been honored. I mean this is an administration that seems to despise our friends and love our enemies.”
He continued, saying “the only saving grace there is that the numbers, at least up to now, have been relatively low. But the capacity to do great damage is still there. I mean, it only took, what, 18 people, to destroy the World Trade Center.”
