Nationally-syndicated radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh was a guest on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace, who asked him about how he would deal with DACA and illegal immigration.
Limbaugh said he would agree to permanent citizenship for illegal immigrants under one very important condition … they would not be eligible to vote for 15 to 25 years.
.@rushlimbaugh says his solution to immigration reform and #DACA is to grant permanent citizenship if, as part of the deal, immigrants can’t vote for 15 years…”if they agree to that, I’ll give them amnesty.”

We know this will never happen because the ONLY reason Democrats ever wanted amnesty was to create a new voting block for their party.
.@rushlimbaugh on @FoxNewsSunday : "I would be willing right here to support an effort to grant permanent citizenship to whatever number of illegal immigrants there are in the country, tomorrow, if you will make as part of the deal they can’t vote for 15-25 years." @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/25hQpkA7aZ

If Democrats were forced to reject such a deal, it would be clear to all watching (including illegal immigrants) that their party has only been concerned with making illegal immigrants citizens of the United States if they vote for them.
If not being eligible to vote for a quarter of a century was part of an immigration deal, we might see Chuck Schumer build the wall himself.
