1. They are coming for your guns, money and daughters!!!!

Be afraid..be very afraid.

It's an old but successful fear button to push, it seems.

2. Isn't Barletta echoing the same stuff that nativists would say about his grandparents?

Barletta is an Italian last name, and last century there was plenty of anti-Italian bigotry in the nation.

8. That's exactly what I'm thinking. Shame on his... "I got mine.. now the door is

closed", mentality.

10. Barletta is echoing the discrimination his grandparents felt.

They must be so proud of their grandson!

3. Are these pics archived in one spot?

My favorite was the recent Hillary Clinton testifying, but I don't know how to get to it.

5. Some have to go on social programs thanks to the Republicans

Who started changing the way the Department of Immigration worked around 2005 and '06. New rules took people who were previously allowed to wait in the US during the process out of the country for up to 10 years. Those left behind who relied on that sponsored person's income had to ask for help from those programs. So thanks, dude, let's reverse the stupid, unclog the lines in Immigration and move forward.

6. Barletta

has it wrong.
In this country, the uneducated seem to vote GOP.
And if these immigrants he speaks of SO VERY highly do become Democratic voters, it's because they can see which side welcomes them, and which side demonizes them.

11. If Mr. Barletta had any sense of history...

... he would remember that the racial invective hurled at Italian immigrants (of which my father was one and which I would assume is something of a similar case in the Representative's family) was the term "WOP" which stood for "without papers" and was designed to remind those immigrants of their non-American origins.

How soon we forget, eh Mr. Representative?

13. Barletta and Rubio. Aren't those Cherokee names? Or maybe Lakota?

Must be some sort of Native American because they are talking about other people as immigrants, not their own families.
