It's the Bush Administration and GOP policies to DO NOTHING about illegal immigration. And it is a major reason why the GOP is going to be in big trouble in 06 and even better trouble 08.
Upper eschelon government on both sides are ignoring the problem. If you'll recall the current mess began with the shift in immigration from Europe and skilled people to developing nations who offer little to an advanced society. For that, you may thank drunken Kennedy's Immigration bill passed in the 1960's. The torrent we now are starting to stagger under didn't begin in 2000 with Mr. Bush. It began in 1992 with the all the stops pulled out by the krinton administration looking for voters and, of course, new and insidious ways of undermining our nation. Oh yeah, I agree that there will be hell to pay if something isn't done before too long.
