GLENN: Rick Oltman is with us. Now, Rick Oltman is the guy. You've seen this Nancy Pelosi video probably on the Internet several times and the video was taken by Rick Oltman. And Rick, what do you do for a living?
OLTMAN: I'm the national media director for Californians For Population Stabilization. Our concerns about immigration. And that's what brought me to the church that night to hear Representative Gutierrez and hopefully to hear what Representative the Speaker of the House Pelosi had to say and we've all heard it, haven't we?
GLENN: You seem angry.
OLTMAN: I think it's bad enough, Glenn, to have congressmen going around the country pandering to illegal aliens, trying to overturn the laws, certainly not protecting jobs for American workers. But when a speaker of the house who is second in line to succession to the president and a national political figure starts pandering to illegal aliens and telling them that they are very patriotic because they are taking responsibility for our country's future, I think that's something everybody ought to hear.
GLENN: In fact, can we play just a little bit of this tape? This is very hard to understand without the subtitles. So Stu, can you just play -- can we play a little bit of this, Dan? Just, the key moment here.
GLENN: And then, Rick, you tell us what she was talking about.
(AUDIO CLIP PLAYS)
GLENN: We're here on a Saturday night because you want to take responsibility for our country's future and that makes you very, very patriotic.
OLTMAN: That's it. That's what she said.
GLENN: What was the whole point behind this meeting?
OLTMAN: Congressman Gutierrez from Chicago is on a 17 city tour around the country with a message that we need to "End the raids." They call them raids. We call them legitimate immigration enforcement in the workplace. And what I think it is is designed to manufacture victims so that they can go to President Obama and say, "We need to end the work site enforcement." He had been -- this happened on March 7th. He had been in Ontario, California that morning. He came to San Francisco that night. And this is really an assault on the American worker that's been going on for a couple of years. There's processes in place to make sure that jobs should go only to American workers which we call either American citizens, or legal immigrants with a work visa. But a couple of years ago when Department of Homeland Security wanted to send out 148,000 letters to employers talking about how 8 million Social Security numbers didn't match up, good indication that they! are probably illegal aliens, got stalled in the courts. There's a computer-verifying system called e-verify which should be permanent and mandatory which should allow every employer in the country to know that they are hiring only American workers, only gets extended for very short periods of time. It's only been extended for another six months and it certainly isn't mandatory. And now this, where they are saying outright we're going to end the workplace enforcement, at a time when we've got 12 million unemployed Americans, probably somewhere between 25 and 30 million illegal aliens in the country, at least eight million of them working here illegally and yet congress congressional members are going around the country saying we're going to end this kind of enforcement. To me it's just unbelievable that at this time of economic chaos and unemployment we have elected officials including the Speaker of the House saying we're going to end any protection for American workers in! the workplace.
GLENN: Here's Luis Gutierrez. He is the congressman and he wrote this letter. It's on, you paid for the stamps, you paid for the letterhead, you paid for the ink, you paid for the time to get this out. Congress of the United States, the U.S. House of Representatives, dear member of the community, thank you for coming to our urgent community meeting today. I appreciate you attending this important event to address the impact on our broken immigration system that it has on families and the hardship that it is causing U.S. citizens. I also want you to know that all the information that you have shared with us in writing today regarding yourself and family including your name, address, phone number and other relevant information is strictly confidential and will not be shared with any government agency.
How are they spending our money to collect information that is not going to be shared with government agencies?
OLTMAN: That's a good question. And the other question is who is paying for this 17 city tour? Who is paying for the airfare and the staff and all of that that goes with it? Here's what they are doing. They are having these meetings in churches, they are having the anchor babies, the children who are American citizens of illegal aliens stand up and testify about how their parent was deported or how they are afraid their parents are going to be deported, and what I think is happening is they are besieging people to fill out these petitions that talks about a loved one who might be deported and then they are going to make a pile of petitions five feet high or ten feet high. The volume is what will matter. And they are going to manufacture all these victims and then they will go to the president and say, well, you won't really be helping illegal aliens. What you'll be doing is helping American citizens. To me it's like going back to the liberal playbook, Chapter! 1, it's about the children, it's about the victims and I think that's what this whole thing is about.
GLENN: Okay. So Rick, it will only meet with a bunch of anger here. What do people do?
OLTMAN: I don't think that's possible. I think the best thing to do --
GLENN: I can have another cupcake. I got off the plane last night here in Orlando, Florida, and somebody actually greeted my plane with M&Ms and they said, "I know it's been a bad news day, Glenn, we thought you wanted some M&Ms.
OLTMAN: That's service. That's service.
GLENN: God bless them. Thank you at the airport. God bless you guys.
OLTMAN: What I suggest -- that's service for you. The first thing I would suggest is please go our website at capsweb.org and watch the video that was on Fox News and so you can see for yourself and you can read what she said.
GLENN: Wait, wait. Was this not on the other networks?
OLTMAN: This was an exclusive for Fox News. I gave the tape to William La Jeunesse at Fox News and to my knowledge nobody else has run it.
GLENN: Unbelievable. Thank you very much.
