Republican AG John Ashcroft, Robert Mueller's Boss In 2001, Said This To America [View all]

Today and hereafter, Lindsey Graham, his partisan colleagues and other "wall" supporters, should heed John Ashcroft's uncompromising declaration to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

To those who pit Americans against immigrants, citizens against noncitizens, to those who scare peace-loving people with phantoms of lost liberty, my message is this: Your tactics only aid terrorists, for they erode our national unity and diminish our resolve.

From Garret M. Graff's The Threat Matrix, The FBI At War (2011)

Turncoat Republicans were once the defenders of this country whose president, Reagan, gave amnesty to millions, and allowed the borders to operate with full funding.

Norquist bag men let their theocratic extremist wing quote Ezekiel and Matthew to make this "wall" part of some prophetic end times story. They hate democracy and love theocracy.

Every chance I get I'll quote Ashcroft to every Republican I meet.
