Ted Nugent Proposes Treating Undocumented Immigrants "Like Indentured Servants"

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/05...d-immig/194035

Quote:
May 13, 2013 12:54 PM EDT TIMOTHY JOHNSON

National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent detailed a plan for immigration reform which calls for treating undocumented immigrants like "indentured servants" and requiring undocumented male immigrants to build a fence on the United States-Mexico border.

In his regular column for WND, Nugent proposed his "Nuge Immigration Plan" because "[w]e don't need any more bloodsuckers" and promised to "apply Sherriff Joe Arpaio justice" to anyone who has been deported for committing a crime and caught trying to re-enter the country. The plan would also end birthright citizenship currently guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment. According to Nugent, "The anchor baby scam should be immediately rescinded. You don't need to be a constitutional expert like our president to know that the original intent of the 14th Amendment was not to provide citizenship to illegal women or their babies who are born on American soil."

The "NIP" would also involve ending the United States government practice of printing some documents in Spanish and other languages, which Nugent calls "the most racist thing our government does" by "encouraging people not to learn English."

Nugent often uses inflammatory rhetoric when discussing immigration. In 2008 he appeared on Fox News' Hannity & Colmes, stating of suspected undocumented immigrants, "I'd like to shoot them dead":

ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: You want to kill on sight anybody who illegally comes into the country. Just shoot them, right?

NUGENT: If they're armed, and they're attacking our country, yes.

COLMES: Well, they wouldn't be attacking. You don't know if someone coming over the border -- would you just shoot anybody coming over the border who you suspect of being illegal?

NUGENT: In an unauthorized entry, armed, like they are right now, invading our country, I'd like to shoot them dead.

COLMES: Just shoot them dead. All right. [Hannity & Colmes via Nexis, 10/13/08]

Nugent has also been a proponent of Arizona's controversial S.B. 1070 law, which was partially invalidated by the Supreme Court in 2012. In a 2010 Washington Times column defending the law, Nugent wrote, "You would have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to see that the grand plan of the Democrats is to entrap illegal immigrants by giving them legal status and then enslave and destroy them with numerous Fedzilla handouts and programs." Nugent also added that suspected undocumented immigrants should be subjected to the prison practices of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has been accused by the Department of Justice of engaging in widespread civil rights violations against Latinos:

While I applaud Arizona for its bold and brave new law, putting illegals in jail is the wrong move. That costs too much. I say Arizona should follow its own American hero, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County.

Sheriff Arpaio keeps crooks in a large outdoor holding facility and makes them sleep in tents. Among other things, he feeds them bologna sandwiches. I hope they are not fresh.

Nugent doubled down on this rhetoric in his immigration reform proposal. From Nugent's May 8 WND column:

The Nuge Immigration Plan (NIP) takes five years for even illegal immigrants to become Americans. Until then, they should be treated like indentured servants, meaning that they have to earn their citizenship.

The NIP is not an amnesty program. Amnesty is for left-wing mollycoddlers, losers, bureaucrats and hippies. Occupy that.

We need a real full-length, undefeatable border fence built. All illegal men in America should be required to work on building the fence, to be completed in one year. We would pay them minimum wage, provide food and shelter, and provide them English and American history classes at night. Everyone wins.

Any man or woman who is a known member of a street rat gang will be tossed out of the country and is not eligible to return. If he or she is caught re-entering America, we will apply Sheriff Joe Arpaio justice.

The anchor baby scam should be immediately rescinded. You don't need to be a constitutional expert like our president to know that the original intent of the 14th Amendment was not to provide citizenship to illegal women or their babies who are born on American soil.

Our massively ignorant, politically correct, terminally boondoggled juggernaut of a federal government should immediately cease printing any signs or literature in Spanish or any other language.

The most racist thing our government does is to print literature in Spanish, thereby encouraging people not to learn English and deny themselves all the American Dream has to offer.

Yes and he said that he would shoot his fellow soldiers if he were in uniform.

Or this time:

Ted who...?

Unfortunately Nugent's demeaning and disparaging attitudes towards immigrants seem to far too closely reflect those of many on the right in general.
