"In recent months, you have told audiences that as president you
will build a “Great Wall of China” with an electrified fence and
alligator-filled moat. One time you even compared immigrants to invading
Huns. Then, as these speeches become controversial, you tried to evade
criticism claiming the proposal was all just a joke. Mr. Cain, jokes involving killing people is not a suitable topic for a
joke. Hundreds of migrants die crossing our Southern border each year,
and as a result this is an extremely sensitive topic, especially among
most of America’s 51 million Hispanics. I’m sure most Americans would
not appreciate jokes about 9-11, and most blacks would not appreciate
jokes about hanging blacks either. Please refrain from ever repeating
this proposal again."
