Media Matter catchesRep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) on the House floor last night comparing the capture of undocumented aliens to that of exotic grasshoppers.
Now it seems to me that if we are so advanced with technology and manpower and competence that we can capture illegal grasshoppers from Brazil, in the holds of ships that are in a little small place in Port Arthur, Texas on the Sabine River. … If we’re able to do that as a country, how come we can’t capture the thousands of people that cross the border everyday on the southern border of the United States?
You know they’re a little bigger than grasshoppers and they should be able to be captured easier.
The context here creates itself.
