Thanks. You're making a great point, too. And it goes to show you how far we've fallen. As much as I'm no fan of the Kennedy's, including JFK, he DID show leadership on the space race and other things. It's a sad day when the head of the Republican party in the White House looks so weak compared to any Kennedy.
And will President Bush sign that? Hmm. I wonder. We sure need that fence.
Just think of the graffitti on the south side of that wall!!!!!
It went from something like "300,000 a year which increases 20% if the current cap is met" was changed to "200,000 a year, period. No increase".
Sessions said it live on the air.
I just heard Kennedy hates it and he's screaming his head off. That's a good sign.
See post #6 and post #95. That should clarify.
It doesn't cover even a quarter of the Texas / mexico border. 1,240 miles (give or take...)
It is the pandering, photo-op kind, unfortunatly.
Whodda thunk that Pat Buchanan was right in '96 when running for prez? Pat advocated that a fence should be built on the southern border to stop the illegals from crossing over, but was laughed at by the critics of the day. Now a mere 10 years later and the fence is going to be built.
Just as I suspected. It's just going to shift them from CA and AZ to NM and TX. WE don't want them in our states either. It amazes me when they pass a "feel good" kind of legislation or amendment through and they think it's going to suffice. Then the "esteemed Senators" congratulate the "honorable senators" on what a fine piece of legislation they just passed. IMBICLES!!! IT'S NOT ENOUGH!!!!DO THE ENTIRE BORDER!!!!
They insult our intelligence when they think we're going to fall for it. Do they really believe that we won't care as long as they don't come in through CA or AZ? Good Lord, it REALLY doesn't matter how they are coming in. IT'S THE FACT THAT THEY'RE COMING IN!!
Even sinator clintoon votes for this admendant.
Fox could guide his hand.
If the illegals are smart and I'm guessing they are... they won't pass where the fence is at.
So they are going to repair existing fences and extend those extisting fences in urban areas by two miles and also build the 370 miles of extra fencing and have it all done within two years.
I hope to God it's in Arizona.
You're misquoting the MSNBC article. That is a quote from Rep. King, not Rove. Go back and re-read it.
She would be an idiot not to. She follows the political winds and can always backtrack later when someone throws it in her face.
She will vote for the wall but at some point, she will vote against it.
Exactly, nothing but a complete fence with guards every 150 yards or so is truly going to dissuade these invaders from coming in.
