"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Bush, senators agree on alien citizenship, shut out critics

“A bill that does not grant automatic amnesty to people, but a bill that says, somebody who is working here on a legal basis has the right to get in line to become a citizen.” - President George W. Bush
That sounds ok I guess, huh, er, ahem...? Although for some reason I'm not clear these days regarding what is "legal" and "illegal." Since those that are here illegally now are often referred to as just "migrants" or "immigrants" the issue I guess is not as big as we have all "overgeneralized" it to be.

Perhaps we should all look deep within ourselves in search of our "compassion." The people that have crossed our border "illegally" didn't really break the law when they did so because they were just trying to support and feed their families. They were just looking for a better life.

Sometimes "illegal" just isn't "illegal," legally speaking that is.

Our elected COCKROACHES are selling us down the river again…

From The Washington Times:

President Bush and a group of senators yesterday reached general agreement on an immigration bill that includes a pathway to citizenship for many illegal aliens.

But left out of the closed-door White House meeting were senators who oppose a path to citizenship. The meeting even snubbed two men who had been considered allies of Mr. Bush on immigration — Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican and chairman of the immigration subcommittee, and Sen. Jon Kyl, Arizona Republican.

Mr. Bush in brief remarks to the press said there was agreement to get “a bill that does not grant automatic amnesty to people, but a bill that says, somebody who is working here on a legal basis has the right to get in line to become a citizen.” But senators, speaking afterward, said Mr. Bush was far more specific in the meeting.

“There was a pretty good consensus that what we have put into the Hagel-Martinez proposal here is the right way to go,” said Sen. Mel Martinez, Florida Republican. “I think he was very clear [on] pathway to citizenship, so long as it goes to the back of the line, and he even opened the door here for something we’ve haggled back and forth on, that you can shrink the time for people to become citizens by simply enlarging the number of green cards.”

And Sen. Sam Brownback, Kansas Republican, said Mr. Bush “endorsed the concept of an earned citizenship.”

That would represent a substantial change on the part of the Bush administration, which just last year said it opposed a path to citizenship for those currently here illegally.

Not only a path to citizenship, but an increase in Green Cards! For some reason they just want to flood this country with poor, uneducated Hispanics! I am so tired of this nonsense, and in the context of what is good for our country, it makes no sense.

Look, we carefully crafted our immigration system so that no one race or culture could become dominant. So that immigrants would not Change our way of life, but instead be absorbed into our society. You remember, the melting pot. The demographics on this one is already out of whack with the 12 million ‘Latinos’ in this country illegally. Now we will legalize those, and allow them to bring their immediate families here, another 30 million. On top of that we will increase the amount of green cards. ENOUGH!!! I am sorry these elected cockroaches are not putting the good of our country FIRST, they are traitors.

Well if this succeeds, the Republican party is toast; mark my words.
