Who said this?

We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to America, you’re going to go to school, and get a job, and become American. We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county. They idea that we can’t assimilate these 8-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous.

The same person also said this:

We can handle this problem is what I’m saying. We’ve handled what [American poet] Emma Lazarus called the ‘wretched refuse of your teeming shore’ a long time ago, and a lot more people than this.

Answer to come, as always...did you miss me? (Don't answer that.)

UPDATE: Answer: Bleeding heart liberal George Will.
