"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

Nobody. Hates. Immigrants.

Someone has their thinking cap on today and that would be der Frau at Red Hot Cuppa Politics.

Cross posted from Red Hot Cuppa Politics:

Neil Stevens is one of my favorite writers and thinkers over at RedState.com. He's asking today "Why do you guys hate immigrants so much ... ?" and it deserves an answer, because alot of Republicans just don't get it.

I'd like folks to embrace this fact: Nobody hates immigrants. It's the little "illegal" thingie that folks object to -- and object strongly.

Stevens praises the effects of (legal) immigration in his well-thought out article, he's correct on every point, and he even agrees towards the end of his article that he's opposed to illegal immigration. Good.

However, the thrust of the article is opposition to Tom Tancredo's bill HR H.R. 946, which would "cut the number of immigrants in half by eliminating chain migration of extended adult family members and the visa lottery. It would also cut out nearly all permanent green cards for skilled workers and would cut refugee admissions by more than half." (from FreeRepublic)
