A South Carolina congressman recently likened undocumented immigrants to vagrants and animals in an awfully misguided comparison during an event with college students.
Rep. Jeff Duncan made the remarks earlier this week during a question-and-answer session at Furman University in Greenville, S.C. A Greenville News article quotes him as saying:
It’s kind of like having a house—and you’re not homeowners, a lot of folks in this room, but your Mom and Dads are—taking the door off the hinges and allowing any kind of vagrant, or animal, or just somebody that’s hungry, or somebody that wants to do your dishes for you, to come in. And you can’t say, ‘No you can’t come in.’ And you can’t say, ‘No you can’t stay all night.’ Or ‘No you can’t have this benefit of using my deodorant.’ All those things. We’re giving those benefits away, which we earn as citizens of this nation, of being legalized citizens.
