He is said to have said:(paraphrased) "If you would like to change this country into the one you FLED from-please feel free to enjoy another of the freedoms we have here - the freedom to leave."
I'm not sure there are any politicians in America with that same kind of directness and perception.
Sadly, we don't have politicians who are willing to stand up and say what is on the minds of many of their constituents. They instead, pander to everyone, illegal or not, in order to get more votes.
And yes, the quote, even if paraphrased, was indeed said. I can't recall the guy's name at this moment, but it's a true story.
