Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh lashed out at Mexican immigrants Wednesday in a radio rant that portrayed them as lazy and government-dependent -- the latest in a series of anti-Mexican statements spouted off by far-right conservatives angered by the possibility of a deal to pass a bipartisan immigration reform.
Limbaugh, who pundits for a living, described Mexican immigrants as lazy and government-dependent, though they are well known for working labor-intensive jobs for lower wages, fewer protections and less government benefits than the native born.
When making the comparison between Mexican immigrants and the Cuban exile generation that immigrated in the 1960s, the conservative radio host insisted that he was “not just asserting it,” and that “the scholarly research from academia is out there.”
Latinos, the Right-wing is working to get immigration reform done with democrats but don't let that fool you - they don't like you any more than before the election. Republican leadership just feels that to win in 2016 they need some of you to go Republican. Well you get what you ask for if you do that. Support Obama - call your representative to have Obama keep the pressure on. You need to see this video and pass it on. TPL
