Christian radio host Bryan Fischer waded into the recent discussion over immigration and “fertility” on Wednesday, saying liberals are behind reforming U.S. immigration laws out of concern over being outnumbered by natural procreation.

“Conservatives are just outbreeding liberals, and that’s a huge problem for liberals, because there’s just gonna be more conservatives,” Fischer said, arguing that liberals were pushing “amnesty” for undocumented immigrants out of fear of being outnumbered in 10 or 20 years.

“We are breeding our own voters,” Fischer continued. “We are conceiving our own voters. They’ve gotta import them. They’re not producing them, so they’ve gotta import them.”

Fischer’s comments seemed to be a response to a June 14 speech by another conservative, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), who encouraged conservatives to embrace immigration reform because “immigrants are more fertile. And they love families and they have more intact families and they bring a younger population.” Bush also suggested that immigrants would be needed to take care of older Americans.

Former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin pushed back against Bush’s remarks a day later, saying, “it’s kind of dangerous territory, territory to want to debate this whole one race’s fertility rate over another, and I say this from someone who’s kind of fertile herself.”

But Palin herself was criticized by Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker, who wrote on Wednesday that Palin’s “coquettish reminders that her field is still tillable diminishes her credibility as anything other than a one-liner comedienne.”
