Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin lit into Congress for reportedly including amnesty in its latest plan for the border crisis.

“I will never give in to this. I thought the president’s proposal was modest. He wants $5.7 billion. In exchange, he’ll extend DACA for three years and this, that, and the other; fine. Fine. Now I hear a comprehensive plan would include amnesty. Well, count me out. I’m not going in on amnesty. You know why? I was there in 1986 at the Department of Justice, watching as a bill was negotiated with Republicans and Democrats. … And we were told exactly the same thing. ‘Amnesty for 2.3 million people, and you’ll get your security, President Reagan.’ They get amnesty; we don’t get security,” he said.

Levin pointed out that when Congress has promised to fund border security in the past, the resulting policies are never more than a fraction of what it promised.

“Meanwhile, you have Americans who are suffering as the result of an open border. Murder, rape, kidnap, pedophilia. ‘Do you mean everybody does that?’ No, I don’t mean everybody does that. But I do mean when foreigners come into this country illegally and we don’t know who they are, and if somebody is harmed, that’s on our government. There’s only so much we can do about a citizen. But there’s a lot we can do about foreigners coming into this country. You come legally, you’re vetted, there’s a process. Just like when you go to McDonald’s. Everybody can’t rush to the front of the line, or jump over the counter and grab their hamburger. It doesn’t work that way, whether it’s McDonald’s, whether it’s an airport, whether it’s anywhere. You get the hell in line and you do what you’re told, or get out,” Levin said.
