Does Bush Want To Be President Of The USA Or President Of Mexico?
Reading things like this coming out of a REPUBLICAN administration just makes me want to pull my hair out…
“Bush administration officials yesterday angered lawmakers by refusing to take a position on illegal aliens obtaining U.S. driver’s licenses and avoiding questions about its decision to recognize Mexican identification cards.”
I’m a little confused about something — is Bush running for President of the United States in 2004 or the President of Mexico? Now if he wants to be President of Mexico, it makes perfect sense for his administration to hedge on a position like this given that polls show the American people are strongly against illegal immigration. But if Bush wants to be President of the United States, and I think he does, maybe his administration shouldn’t be taking a position that helps Mexico at the expense of the people of the United States.
The last thing we should be doing is making it EASIER on illegal aliens, terrorists, and foreign drug runners who enter our country illegally by allowing them to get a US ID or by recognizing matricula consular cards that no one who is in the US legally would need. Isn’t it about time that someone in the Bush administration started to get on the right side of this issue?
