Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has no problem "dragging undocumented immigrants onto buses" in front of their crying children. "It can be done," she told Bill O'Reilly on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor. Bachmann doesn't appear concerned that families are being torn apart with devastating consequences to U.S.-citizen children.
Amid a record number of detentions and deportations by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detentions, more than 5,000 children are in foster care around the country, according to a study, "Shattered Families," by the Applied Research Center. O'Reilly told the GOP presidential hopeful: "Look, if you pick up some guy in a car, and he's an illegal alien -- he's got three kids at home -- what are you gonna do, throw him and his kids on a bus the next day? Is that what you're gonna do? Can you imagine that?"
Bachmann, reinforcing her hard-line stance on the issue, replied: "Well Bill, what we have to do is end the practice of anchor babies in the United States" because that's when "illegal aliens come in." O'Reilly said, "I'm not justifying it. I'm just saying on a human basis, I don't think that -- theory is one thing. Dragging people out, putting them on a bus with their children's crying can be quite something else."
Bachmann said matter-of-factly: "It can be done. That's the thing, it can be done."
