Barney Frank: ‘Element of Racial Prejudice’ In Concern Over and Opposition To Illegal Immigration


Former Representative Barney Frank (D-MA) argued that there is “an element of racial prejudice” in the opposition to and concern over illegal immigration on Friday’s “Real Time” on HBO.

Frank said, during a discussion of illegal immigration, “Let me add one thing too, by the way, this would not be the case if these immigrants were coming from a country of white people. There’s an element of racial prejudice in there, over and above behavior, I mean, It’s like Ebola. If Ebola was happening in Ireland, and Israel, and Italy, there would not have been the demand that we keep anybody from those areas out of America.”

Host Bill Maher added, “whenever they say i want my country back. I always think, what was going on here in the ’50s?”
