Home Depot Co-Founder Blasts US Immigration Policy – ‘We Have Enough Screwballs’

Ken Langone, co-founder of Home Depot, blasted U.S. immigration policy saying “we need to know who’s here with us” because “we have enough screwballs.”

With the New York City terrorist attack as the backdrop, Langone railed against bleeding-heart liberals who seek an open door policy to the country.

“Nothing proves to me more than this experience that we need to know who’s here with us,” he fumed. “How the hell can we just say, ‘Come on in and we don’t care how you got in here and we don’t care where you’re from or what you did or what your background was’?”

Sayfullo Saipov legally rented a Home Depot truck and ran down eight innocent people on a bike path in Manhattan.


Langone said that he, as many are, is pro-immigrant, but that we need to know why they’re here and where they came from.

“This underscores the need for us to be diligent and have a program and have an effort where people have to let us know who they are and that they came in here legitimately,” he said.

“Why have borders, otherwise? I don’t understand this.”

President Trump, thankfully, agrees:


Langone went on to say the United States has enough “screwballs” to contend with without others being brought in from other countries.

“Look,” he continued, “there’s nuts in the world.”

“You know, we have mass murders, remember Kaczynski, the guy that was the Unabomber – we have enough screwballs in America without importing them.”


“We ought to know who’s coming to America, we ought to know something about their background, like we do with all legitimate immigrants,” Langone concluded. “And, this argument that we should look the other way with illegitimate immigrants is nuts.”

Who could possibly disagree with anything he has said here, especially after New York City mourns an ISIS attack on American soil.
