Strangest Argument Against A Path To Citizenship

This is among the stranger things that has been said.
A Republican Congressman argued that the immigration measures making their way through the House of Representatives won’t include a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants because many don’t want to achieve legal status.
“The 11 million is not a homogeneous group,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s Immigration Subcommittee, said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday. “All of the 11 million don’t want citizenship. It would be curious to force it on those who don’t want it,” he added, noting that millions won’t be able to pass background checks.

It isn't like Homeland Security is going to come in and force anyone to become a citizen at gunpoint. And as for millions not being able to pass background checks ... well then the law will have done its job won't it?

The inconsistency of the arguments that I am starting to see from the right is a clear sign to me that they have no idea what they are going to do here.
