Laura Ingraham hosted Sheriff Paul Babeu on undoumented minors being dumped in the US. .
Babeu said Arizona has more than enough problems without the overflow of 154,000 illegal aliens from Texas to Arizona, taking them to bus stations so they can go wherever in the US. He also noted they aren't doing turn backs at the borders and are releasing criminals into the US population. He slammed President Obama, DHS Secretary Jay Johnson and Minority Leader Eric Cantor are supporting this all which opens the US to potential terrorists and repeat entries into the US with no consequence and no enforcement. He said these people will be used to undermine US sovereignty and to use the racist card to silence those who stand for the rule of law.
Babeu and Ingraham suggested that all the aliens be bused to Illnois' Cook County or to the backers of amnesty's homes. Both decried the fact that those going through the immigration system legally pay thousands and wait for years while illegal aliens get a free ride on the taxpayers dime.

He stated that this is an issue of socialized medicine as the VA has plenty of money. He suggested that the veterans be given Medicare cards so they have the choice they deserve.
Huelskamp said the words in President Obama's West Point speech do not match his actions, especially on Maerican exceptionalism while he bows to international norms.

He said he's been the victim of these tactics by being cut out on funding and committees as the establishment fights to keep its power. He said one is in the outs if they are Tea Party conservatives.

In the clip, Snowden described himself as a 21st-century "spy," who has more experience and expertise than the U.S. government has led people to believe. "I am a technical expert. I don't work with people. I don't recruit agents. What I do is I put systems to work for the United States," Snowden said, using the present tense despite the fact that he has been living in exile in Russia after leaking classified documents. "And I've done that at all levels from the bottom on the ground all the way to the top."
