Amnesty For Illegals? Never Again!
Everything you need to know about the Amnesty bill meeting that Bush, McCain, and some of the other pro-illegal Republicans in the Senate attended is right here:
“I’m not in the habit of patting the president on the back and sending him accolades, but I have to say that this meeting that we just had, I have to pat the president on the back,” said Minority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat. “This was really, I thought, a good, good meeting.”
The last time Harry Reid was that happy with Bush was right after he nominated Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court and we all know what a fantastic move that turned out to be.
This compromise Bush, McCain, Kennedy, & Company are working on is bad for the Republican Party and bad for America. That’s something that the Republicans in the House seem to understand. They’ve got a great bill in the works and are, at least for the moment, saying the right things:
“This idea that was being kicked around the Senate about providing some sort of amnesty for those who have been here five years or more, I just think it was a very big mistake,” House Majority Leader John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, said yesterday. “You are just inviting more people to come.”
If Bush and the Republicans in the Senate don’t have the common sense to go along with the House and do the right thing on illegal immigration — which is to build a wall, crack down on employers, and get tough with the illegals who are here to discourage more illegals from coming — then perhaps those of us who believe our immigration laws should be enforced can fight them to a standstill politically and keep them from doing the wrong thing for America.
If we do that, we have a better chance to win on this issue long-term because time is on our side, not theirs. The more people become informed about this issue, the more illegal aliens rallies there are, and the more the GOP gets worried about their demoralized and disenchanted base, the better chance we have to get a bill that puts the interests of American people ahead of the interests of “undocumented workers,” the crooked businesses that knowingly employ them, and the Democrats who see potential votes every time they look at illegals.
