Phyllis Schlafly is very, very worried about the state of immigration in the U.S. today. You never really know, after all, exactly who is coming through the borders. It could be monsters or aliens or werewolves — or, scariest of all, Muslim polygamists on welfare!

Speaking on a radio show called "Crosstalk," Schlafly said,

I would like to know if our immigration authorities are letting in people who believe in polygamy. Polygamy is against our law. We’ve brought in thousands of Muslims — I want to know if they made them sign a pledge to assure they’re not bringing in a bunch of wives who will now go on our welfare. Nobody can answer that question; I can’t get any answers to that question.

A caller into the show decided to one-up Schlafly, though, by noting that the Obama administration was probably going to "bring in 40-50 million Muslims ... to destroy our Constitution." Schlafly responded, "It is true," but remained laser-focused on the whole polygamy thing, urging the caller to "Get somebody to answer the question: Do you make sure they’re not bringing polygamists in?"
