The three-breasted woman was very much at the top of my list in [original ‘Total recall’]. Like I said, I was fourteen! I remember Arnold [Schwarzenegger] pulling that big tracker out of his nose and freaking out about that. I remember going through the immigration booth where their face splits open with that heavyset redheaded lady. So there were a lot of these little moments that I remember.
I actually think history doesn’t repeat itself. There are recurrent themes, but they’re repeated with variations. Each time there’s an immigration crisis, a threat from outside which is met with inhospitable wall building, it’s different. And I think it’s helpful to notice the big patterns in history, but it’s also important to pay attention to the details, which makes each situation distinct from another.
From a policy point of view, I don’t think it’s the right approach. I don’t like the idea of having millions of people here for their entire life without being able to assimilate into America…From a political point of view, we’ve got 55 Democrats sent and a 72 percent support for a path to citizenship. It’s just not practical to think we’ll be able to pass any bill in the United States Senate without a path to citizenship.
How can you raise the level of consciousness on this? How can you get the federal government to take the responsibility? Florida does not have a foreign policy. This is a federal policy or absence of federal policy. It’s so clear that we’re not being treated fairly. We have to come up with a solution. It hurts your head trying to figure out what to do.
Immigration along with nonwhite birthrates will make white people a minority totally vulnerable to the political, social, and economic will of blacks, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, and Orientals. A social upheaval is now beginning to occur that will be the funeral dirge of the America we love. I shudder to contemplate the future under nonwhite occupation; rapes, murders, robberies multiplied a hundred fold, illiteracy such as in Haiti, medicine such as in Mexico, and tyranny such as in Togoland.
It’s amnesty that America can’t afford. We have to stop people from coming in illegally. This will be a green light for anyone who wants to come to America illegally and then be granted citizenship one day… The majority that are here illegally are low-skilled or may not even have a high school diploma. The Republican Party is not going to compete over who can give more social programs out. They will become Democrats because of the social programs they’ll depend on.
More than 95 percent of both legal and illegal immigration into the United States is non-white. Because of the way immigration law is structured, the highest-skilled nations on earth – those of Europe – are allowed only a tiny percentage of immigrants, while the third world nations such as Mexico are dumping their chaff onto American shores at the highest rate in history.
I think the real, fundamental problem that the Republicans have is, ‘How do we get meaner, how do we get nastier with immigrants, so that we can take a smaller group,’ now apparently led by Senator Cruz – I mean, maybe he’s gonna be the next Speaker of the House. Because it’s quite clear that Mr. Boehner has no control over this conference.
