Ladies and gentleman, the idiocy of anti-immigration groups in this country is steadily continuing to reach new and unfathomable heights.
Americans for Legal Immigration, known as ALIPAC, but also known as America's favorite hemorrhoid, are extreme anti-immigration activists. Their leader, William Gheen has a long and illustrious past of saying and writing stupid shit—case in point: "Americans are the Jews and the illegal aliens and their supporters are the Nazis."
This time, ALIPAC called for their supporters to
engage in an intellectual debate send their stanky-ass underwear to President Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, and immigrants detained in facilities as to remind "citizens that DC is already full of dirty laundry." In a post on the ALIPAC website yesterday:
"Obama and Boehner have proven once and for all that their talk of passing immigration reform amnesty, instead of enforcing America's existing border and immigration laws, only brings more unwanted and destructive illegal immigration!" said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Instead of using our tax money to buy illegals 42,000 pairs of new underwear, we would like to send the illegals and DC politicians a message by mailing them our used underwear, and some of our pairs are in really bad shape due to the bad economy and all of the jobs illegal immigrants are taking from Americans."
"...[A]ll of the jobs illegal immigrants are taking from Americans." Hmm. Sure this is a ridiculous gag that only serves to bring attention to racist idiots. (Oops). But it also happens to be a huge slap in the face considering how crowded and yes, unsanitary the conditions are at detention facilities, which ACLU of Arizona's James Lyall reported as "inhumane and inadequate."
Next week in honor of Independence Day, Gheen is set to head down to the border himself to shut down the supposedly Obama-orchestrated "illegal immigrant youth invasion" (not a garage shoegaze surf band), which is apparently his name for the unaccompanied child migrants crisis.
