Right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein has a solution for the homeless veteran problem: make them politicized propaganda for President Trump’s immigration policies.
During an appearance on NutriMedical Report Show this week, Bernstein called for a ban on all immigration, along with calling on Trump to utilize homeless veterans for a “human wall” along the US-Mexico border.
“I think we need a moratorium on all legal immigration completely for at least five years, if not ten years,” Bernstein said in an audio clip flagged by Right Wing Watch. “We’ve got to eliminate birthright citizenship, we’ve got to eliminate chain migration, we’ve got to eliminate the visa lottery, we’ve got to eliminate all carrots and treats, if you will, for people to come here.”
He went on to say that the government should “quadruple” the size of the US Border Patrol.
“They should be stationed down on the border until the border wall is built. And I mean stationed down across the entire 1,900 miles,” he said, adding that there is “no reason we can’t have military all along the border in a big, long line.”
“A human wall, if you will,” Bernstein continued. “You think of how many homeless veterans there are living in California and elsewhere. These people are on the streets after fighting for our country. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to grab all of them and offer them a job with a decent salary and decent pay to man our Southern border?”
According to Bernstein, veterans “would be happy to do it.”
“They’d be so thrilled to be able to do that, to protect and to serve our country again,” he said. “This is what they’re born and bred to do, so why not let them continue to do that? Again, you’re helping the homeless situation, you’re getting the homeless veterans off the streets, you’re giving them values, you’re giving them self-worth, you’re making them feel like whole beings once again.”
