George W had an incredible opportunity right after September 11th to mobilize our national guard troops on the Border to stop the influx of illegals (and terrorists) in the name of Homeland Security. There would have been little debate or outcry by the Left in the days after September 11th had he done what should have rightfully been done to protect Americans. What a wasted opportunity!!

I'm doubtful that this Bill or any meaningful immigration legislation will be hammered out during the remainder of his presidency.

Senate grapples with illegal immigration

Senate caves to illegal immigration is more like it.

I just e-mailed AND wrote both OH Senators to oppose the senate bills and favor the Sensenbrenner bill. Got the standard boiler plate from DeWine, but it DOES indicate that he is answering mail on this and shows how serious they are feeling the heat.

Overhauling the nation's immigration laws "is not going to be easy," Bush said at the naturalization ceremony at Constitution Hall two blocks from the White House.

Is that a threat or a promise Mr. President?

"We will not accept enforcement-only approaches,"

Illegals get to choose what they will or will not accept?

Gee, that's a great premise to start from, huh?

In other words, business as usual. Various groups in our country can still flout our immigration laws. The Senate's idea of national sovereignty is a joke upon the American people.

"No one should claim that immigrants are a burden on our economy because the work and enterprise of immigrants helps sustain our economy,"

Visit any local hospital to find illegal immigrants using the emergency room as their own doctor's office. Illegal immigration is killing the health care industry for all of us.

Gutless, spineless, ani-American congresscritters, are stabbing us all in the back.

Blood is squirting from my eyes, and I need some duct tape to keep my head from exploding.

The panel adopted an amendment by Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., that would protect humanitarian organizations from prosecution for providing more than simple emergency aid to such immigrants. "Charitable organizations, like individuals, should be able to provide humanitarian assistance to immigrants without fearing prosecution," Durbin said.

Yes, thats right ... come on in Manuel, Mohamhead, Abdula ... make yourselves right at home. Rest up, get a good meal and a good nights sleep before your big day of terrorist attacks against American schools, malls, businesses. /sarc/

You know what ... It will take an attack on something like a school where, lets say, 500 or 600 kids are killed by terrorists who CAME IN ACROSS THE BOARDER with the help of MS13 or some such gang. I think at that point (hopfully) we'll see a few million Americans marching in the streets callings for the heads of the illegals as well as the heads of the politicians.

I don't understand what there is to grapple with. If they are here illegally, send them home.

Me, I was against granting Amnesty, until this weekend, several things caused me to rethink my position, and I'm hoping other FReepers will reconsider theirs:

Please rethink your xenophobic views, Fellow FReepers!

"humanitarian groups or individuals who help illegal immigrants with more than emergency assistance."

Is it "humanitarian" to give a dude a job?

The worst possible "solution" is a complicated solution that lacks honesty and guts and has a zillion loopholes open to dispute and interpretation and that keep the lawyers in money for decades.

Everybody loses but the lawyers and bureaucrats.
