Harry Reid, August 5, 1993:

“Currently, an alien living illegally in the United States often pays no taxes but receives unemployment, welfare, free medical care and other federal benefits. … Our borders have overflowed with illegal immigrants placing tremendous burdens on our criminal justice system, schools and social programs. … Our federal wallet is stretched to the limit by illegal aliens getting welfare, food stamps, medical care and other benefits often without paying any taxes. … Safeguards like welfare and free medical care are in place to boost Americans in need of short-term assistance. These programs were not meant to entice freeloaders and scam artists from around the world. Even worse, Americans have seen heinous crimes committed by individuals who are here illegally.”

Harry Reid, April 6, 2006:

“We have eleven million people living in the shadows of our society. … Our immigration laws – in many instances - force them to live in hiding. They live in fear every day that they will be deported and separated from their families and their communities. For those people who are already here, I believe that we have to provide an opportunity for those who work hard, pay taxes, play by the rules, commit no crimes (Ed. nevermind that their presence here means they already committed crimes), learn English and contribute to our economic growth, to earn the right to stay here. We should encourage people to work here and then go home, which many people want to do and used to do, before we made it so dangerous to go back and forth across the border.”

So let me get this straight. Harry Reid thinks the illegal aliens are “freeloaders” and “scam artists” who place “tremendous burdens on our criminal justice system, schools and social programs” but thinks we should change our laws so they no longer “live in fear” of deportation and better yet, we should “encourage them” to continue breaking our laws by coming and going across the border as they please…
