Dem Congressman: ‘We’ve Proved That Communism Works’

    Democratic Florida Rep. Joe Garcia — fresh off being caught eating his own earwax on camera — was caught red-handed (or is it yellow-fingered?) in another gaffe this week, claiming that low crime rates in border cities with lots of federal immigration workers is proof that “Communism works.”

    Garcia made the comment during a Google hangout he convened last week to talk about comprehensive immigration reform with supporters. The Democrat attempted to point out how, for all their talk about limited government, many Republicans are fine spending loads of government money on border security.

    “Let me give you an example, the kind of money we’ve poured in,” he said. “So the most dangerous — sorry, the safest city in America is El Paso, Texas. It happens to be across the border from the most dangerous city in the Americas, which is Juarez. Right?”

    “And two of the safest cities in America, two of them are on the border with Mexico,” Garcia continued. “And of course, the reason is we’ve proved that Communism works. If you give everybody a good, government job, there’s no crime.”

    “But that isn’t what we should be doing on the border,” he continued. “The kind of money we’ve poured into it, and we’re having diminishing returns.”

    As a former El Pasoan, I have heard that nowadays people have bars on their windows whereas in the past El Paso used to be a friendly place with low crime. Perhaps the border is a little easier to enforce there because you have a small stream called the Rio Grande between the two countries at that point. However, people have waded across the Rio Grande at El Paso for over 100 years, with no end in sight.

    Mexico refuses to reform. It is just easier to export people than to reform. The ruling class in Mexico has not changed since the 19th century. Even the richest man in the world, Mexican Carlos Slim, is not interested in social causes and people have told me that he lives in the Riviera.
