Herman Cain's Solution to Immigration Problem: Alligator-Filled Moat and an Electrified Great Wall. Immigration Group Livid

hermancain.jpg
Herman Cain wants to be president. He also wants to build an alligator-filled moat along the border.
Republican presidential candidate/Godfathers Pizza baron Herman Cain has a solution for the immigration problem currently plaguing the United States. It involves a moat, alligators, and a new take on China's "great wall."

Cain's archaic solution is as follows: build a moat along America's southern border, fill it with alligators, and construct a 20-foot high electrified wall with barbed wire at the top.

See Cain describe his plan in his own words below.



Below is the text of Cain's comments:

I just got back from China. Ever heard of the Great Wall of China? It looks pretty sturdy. And that sucker is real high. I think we can build one if we want to! We have put a man on the moon, we can build a fence! Now, my fence might be part Great Wall and part electrical technology...It will be a twenty foot wall, barbed wire, electrified on the top, and on this side of the fence, I'll have that moat that President Obama talked about. And I would put those alligators in that moat!

Needless to say, immigration groups aren't happy.

Somos Republicans bills itself as a Valley-based national watchdog group that promotes immigration reform. A gator-filled moat apparently isn't the type of "reform" it was looking for, and the group is now calling for Cain to end his quest for the presidency.

In an email, Somos Republicans says the following about Cain and his plan:

We call on Herman Cain to drop his candidacy for President. His recent comments and lack of practical solutions to solving illegal immigration show he's not a serious candidate. Many Hispanics find his recent comments comparing immigrants to "invading Huns" offensive, and also insensitive when thousands of immigrants died crossing the desert. We're looking for practical and humane solutions, and find Cain's pandering to xenophobes disgusting. Apparently nativist tea has been served up at many tea parties! Hispanics are a key swing vote, and whichever GOP candidate succeeds in winning the nomination cannot win the general election without the Hispanic vote. Cain needs to leave the field open to more serious candidates.

Peoria Ave # A-100   Phoenix, AZ 85029Her assumed Social Security # is her Aunt's Soc. Sec. # 611-32-7757 (Karla P. Durazo) who actually lives in California.She drives a pathfinder with AZ lic. # AHT4587 Her address is: 2220 W.

I am very concerned about the illegal activities (Document Fraud, Identity Theft, Conducting crimes in America) that she is involved in. Please address the above issues as soon as possible.

Cain is brilliant! He would need to beef it up though. I call for a one hundred yard mine field on both sides of his fence. Thousands of trained birds wired with explosives can circle the fence-moat-minefield and kamikaze into any living thing that dares try to cross. Lasers! We could launch satellites to rain down lasers too! I think that I can wrap this proposal up in about two pages so it would fall under Cains nifty "3 page law" plan! Brilliant man, just brilliant!

It is disappointing to learn that Somos Republicans are not in support of U.S. Immigration law. It is clear that only persons attempting to enter the country illegally are affect by measures taken to prevent it. People entering legally would not be affected and are not the target of Mr. Cain's comments. Obey the law!!!

HOW MANY ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE REALLY HERE?

In all thetalks and discussions about cutting back on the US treasury deficits, bothparties are refusing to consider in these antagonistic debates, the factthat illegal aliens are compounding this major issue; the dollar amount to the $14.5 Trilliondollars, in this miserable meltdown we are facing. The Department of Homeland Security estimated in 2003, that8 million to 12 million illegal aliens had settled in America and 700,000 new peopleenter illegally and stay each year. That’s across borders, by lying at entryports as tourists to the official. These administration statistics are somewhatsuspect and may represent major under counting, as they are fashioned by the verypeople accountable for the tsunami of illegal aliens entering our country. Analternative method is used here to estimate a range of numbers of illegal’sthat is probable more levelheaded.

The precise number of illegal’s entering theUnited States and the exact rate at which they cross our borders are unknown.Official government numbers are often hard to come by, remain intentionally concealedand are habitually sanitized, in the federal sector and states. This directed (CAPS)California for Population Stabilization to seriously question officials at the CensusBureau and (DOF) California Department of Finance, population figures on these numbers.

As an alternative of the 8 million to 12million illegal aliens these agencies and the liberal progressives claim to behere, there may actually be 20 million to 30 million or more? Nobody trulyknows?

Thecost of harboring illegal immigrants in the UnitedStates is a staggering $113 billion a year; an average of $1,117 forevery  household in America and that’s just at the federal level. Moretruth and  Statistics  requested? Go to NumbersUSA or Judicial Watch.

Freshman Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.)added his name to 14 different bills on Thursday that would reduce overallimmigration levels and work to end illegal immigration.

H.R.152 - a bill introduced by Rep. Ted Poe's to improve border securityH.R.310 - a bill introduced by Rep. Sure Myrick that would prohibit federal funding to institutions of higher learning that provide in-state tuition to illegal aliens H.R.691 - a bill introduced by Rep. Phil Gingrey that would prevent mortgages from going to illegal aliens H.R.692 - a bill introduced by Rep. Phil Gingrey that would end Chain Migration H.R.693 - a bill introduced by Rep. Phil Gingrey that would require all businesses to use E-Verify within 60 days H.R.800 - a bill introduced by Rep. John Carter that would require all businesses to use E-Verify within 2 years H.R.1091, introduced by Rep. Duncan Hunter that would require DHS to construct 350 additional miles of border fencing H.R.1134 - a bill introduced by Rep. Duncan Hunter that would prohibit federal funds being sent to sanctuary cities H.R.1196 - a compilation bill introduced by Rep. Gary Miller, the LEAVE Act, that would end birthright citizenship, require nationwide use of E-Verify, improve interior enforcement, and discontinue rewards to illegal aliens H.R.1459 - a bill introduced by Rep. Sue Myrick, the Scott Gardner Act, that would increase penalties for illegal aliens caught with a DWI H.R.1698 - a bill introduced by Rep. Sue Myrick that would increase fines for employers that hire illegal aliens H.R.1764 - a bill introduced by Rep. Charles Boustany that would end sanctuary cities H.R. 2000 - a bill introduced by Rep. Heath Shuler, the SAVE Act, that would require all employers to use E-Verify and strengthen interior and border enforcement H.R.2164 - a bill introduced by Rep. Lamar Smith, the Legal Workforce Act, which would require all employers to use E-Verify.

Americancannot afford anymore to support the poverty of other countries. The finalstraw was learning from the (FAIR) Federation of American Immigration reformthat a volume amnesty would cost to process everybody with all the FBIbackground checks, health checks and the occupied paperwork over $2.5 trilliondollars. This is incorrigible when 13 million Americans are seeking work andthis country, is still in a recession and unlikely to climb out of this$14.4 Trillion dollars financial chaos for years. Every American needs torethink his vote for 2012. Not for Democrats, not for Liberals and not forRepublicans, but for this Nation's People under the banner of the TEA PARTY. 

Thisis the time to empty the overcrowded classrooms, full with the childrenof illegal aliens. Give hospitals breathing space saving billions ofdollars from uninsured illegal immigrants, who knowingly enter by foot,vehicle, aircraft or boat into the United States. Entering illegally ina violation of our national sovereignty and should be a felony, forillegal aliens and those who knowingly break the rules, includingbusinesses. Start the Attrition by enforcement programs such asE-Verify, Secure Communities and support Arizona, Alabama, Georgia,Utah and States nationwide who have no choice but to restrict illegalimmigrants through police laws as their welfare programs are beingsucked dry.

Fearfulillegal nationals are bypassing Arizona and loading their possessions,heading for Sanctuary States as California, Nevada, Illinois,Washington state and many counties within particular States.

If that was a joke, then old Herman was also probably just funny as hell telling America that he'll only sign bills that are no more than 3 pages long and can be read at dinner tables. Hell, a lease for one of his old pizzarias in a commercial building is 15 pages in length, but I guess he never read those either.

Did anyone notice the lack of the word "jobs" in that presentation. Listen closely....

Context, Context, Context.  Look up the entire video, he was JOKING!  He was playing the part of comedian in this particular speech.  Jon Stewart also criticized his "view" on bills in this same larger video ("no more than 3 pages") - ALSO A JOKE!  Good grief, you call this reporting?

1. It was a joke2. Even if he did build an electric wall with alligator moat...the only ones who would need to worry about it are ILLEGALS!!!  People who come into the country legally wouldn't be sneaking across any borders!!!

Rather than addressing the issue of illegal immigration and search for real solutions, this organization chooses to smear Herman Cain. Why? Because he is a REAL candidate with REAL ideas, and he threatens Obama's status. Perhaps these comments were off-the-cuff, meant to play to the crowd. Perhaps there is actually some validity to building a wall, to protect our national security interests.

Could Mr. Cain be right? We'll only find out the answer to that, if we listen and think about it, rather than attacking.

Where are the Jobs with the truth being there is over 20% of americans unemployed. America does not need any more help, it needs to protect the people it has now. There is a front door to the USA. Tell me what country lets Americans come in the back door without a passport and a work visa. Why is it that Americans need to play by the rules of Law and illegal's do not and get a free pass if they break the Laws and sent back to their home country, FUBAR. Maybe we need to add more stars to the flag starting with Mexico, they will always be our neighbor like it or not. Maybe USA can buy it with more printed money. Next the argument will be that robots are taking the jobs away from illegal's and Americans in the near future. In stead of trying to put Herman Cain down on his metaphors try under stand his meaning and his talking points. Good to see that someone is brave to bring up Americas important matters, even if others only have put downs. No No You Can't Stop The Herman Cain Train.

"Cain needs to leave the field open to more serious candidates."

Judging by his recent comments, that would include virtually everybody. Including Tammy Faye Baker. And yes, I do know she's dead.

" Yeah, let's transplant a species from a tropical climate to a desert. Perfect. Then we'll build a moat across the san pedro River. Brilliant. Then an electrified barbed wire topped fence wall thing. I'll have my people work out the details here. This is change I can believe in. Hell, cant be harder than makin pizza. Do you have any idea how many pizzas I've made in my lifetime? Pizzas/border security. Direct correlations"

Herman Cain talks about Jobs more than any other topic.  He is right...bills do not need to be 1500 pages long and that is because that is how things are hidden. do you know how many pages are in the constitution? And it was not a joke. He was poking fun at Obama's joke.

Uhh. no. we call it comedy where I come from. What is is with you people and John Stewart? He's a comedian. His show is on Comedy Central. And if you listened to him, you'd see that he has more centrist views that many young people subscribe to. Wake up, the world isn't either blue or red.

as to point #2 the US would have to worry about keeping the fences electrified and keeping the alligator's alive

Joking or not that is the stupidest idea I have ever heard, #1 how much do you think that bullshit will cost and #2 how long do you think it will take before those alligators become a meal, a pair of boots,  a few wallets, and a couple of belts?  After a good Alligator meal the illegals will continue to cross in brand new "Alligator Boots".  It should be illegal to be this stupid, specially politicos.

Herman Cains talking points? Such as "I wouldn't allow a bill over 3 pages to be introduced in congress, so everyone can read it at the dinner table". That's not a talking point, it's pandering to a dumbed down america. I really get a kick out of anyone taking him seriously...then I get scared, realizing that some americans actually take this idiot seriously. Copmpletely lost on Herman is the fact that THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA DIDN'T FUCKING WORK. The western world eventually made it's way in...China capitalized on it and now is the largest economy in the world. Do we need a recap for you Herman Cain supporters that stumbled on my multi syllable words?

I call "pants on fire." Unemployment is officially 9.2% and has much more to do with boneheaded, fiction-based, nonsensical Republican economic policies than anything to do with immigration. Cain's simply pandering to know-nothings like you in hopes he'll sound just as nutty as you are. 

Face it Home Boy, your way doesn't work and neither will Cain's. Never has, never will. Look at China.

Not so unlikely - I know of a number of dark-skinned folk who think their brothers and sisters in pigment are of a lesser stock.   You can bet that they also believe pretty much every color of skin or ethnicity are all of a lesser stock.  That's the problem with hate - it's an equal opportunity emotion.  This man is filled with hate - I think it's coming from his fire and brimstone religious upbringing.

I think that if Obama(a Democrat) were to go forth and proceed with this plan, he gets all the credit for securing the border, that not a single damn Republipuke could ever do.

A Black man's solution is the White man's whining.
