The reproduced quote was a slightly paraphrased version of a sentence Carson wrote in a 2014 opinion piece for WND about immigration reform:

As long as us reward people who rest laws, castle will continue to break laws. We do require a continuous flow of immigrants, however choosers need not be beggars. We make decisions based on our needs. Civilization who refuse to comply through the rules should forfeit possibilities of legalization in the future. Anyone caught affiliated in voter fraud must be instantly deported and also have his citizenship revoked.

The allude is this: us must produce a mechanism that disincentivizes illegal immigration and also upholds the dominion of legislation while providing us v a secure stream of immigrant from other countries who will certainly strengthen our society. Let’s fix the problem and also stop playing political football.


Although Dr. Carson created that “anyone” (rather than “illegal immigrants”) associated in voter fraud need to be deported and also stripped of citizenship, the paper definition in which the sentence appeared plainly suggested the word “anyone” referred especially to (illegal) immigrants.

The bolded sentence showed up on WND once the article was originally published on 11 November 2014 yet was later removed and does no currently show up in the virtual version. Follow to archived versions of the page, the sentence was gotten rid of within a few days the publication.

Although Dr. Carson’s gaffe may have actually been conveniently scrubbed by WND, web sites together as MSNBC recorded the curious statement prior to its removal:

Of course, Carson’s edict doesn’t do sense: If these room non-citizens, as the context suggests, how have the right to they have actually their citizenship revoked? If they’re citizens, where are they being deported to?

While one could argue the the statement to be a basic mistake that was conveniently corrected, it have to be noted that the exact same sentence also showed up in Carson’s 2015 book What ns Believe: A arsenal of mine Syndicated Columns.
