We`ve mentioned this before (see Will Sharron Angle Use Immigration Patriot Harry Reid (1993) Against Treason Lobby Reid (2010)?) but it`s worth repeating.
In 1993, Harry Reid was saying
"If making it easy to be an illegal alien wasn`t enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sane country would do that. Right? Guess again! If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with US citizenship."
Of course, moving onto the national stage makes Democrats move to the left. As a white Southern Congressman and Senator from Tennessee, Al Gore was pro-gun, pro-life, and anti-immigration. (He had a better NumbersUSA than Fred Thompson, the Republican Senator from Tennessee. )
The same thing applies to Reid—as a Congressman from a border state, he`s all about protecting his constituents from illegals. As a national Democratic leader, he`s had it exlained to him that illegals practically are his constituents—once they`re on that "path to citizenship."
