"Whichever party in 2008 comes out against illegal immigration will win."

Do you really think the issue will get that much attention by then? It would have to be one of the major parties, no third party will prevail on just one issue, it's been tried and has failed.

Who will have credibility? The Dems, no. The Pubbies, no.

They'll have to build this incrementally, this is the next big battle, and it will have to go step by step.

Of course a good first step would be closing/securing the border, and not just the Mexican border, not just the Canadian border, but the borders at the airports.

Visa reform, controlled borders, these are first steps. Throwing out criminal illegals (or increasing the penalties for their crimes to draconian levels) would be step A, even before #1.

I think many Americans MIGHT be willing to CONSIDER some kind of "amnesty" if they KNEW it wouldn't just lead to another flood.

WE've got to stop the current lawless situation. I for one don't trust Hillary! JEB, or even Rudy Giuliani to be any use for any of that.

Odds are that there will be some terror event in the future that involves South Americans and/or Mexican gangsters. Which will get everybody's attention.
