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.
If the fence is too small to be effective the conclusion will be that fences don't work. Not that we need more fences.
Our leadership is dedicated with bringing the illegals out of the shadows. Only the House can save us from this "leadership".
Land mines would be cheaper. Watch towers every 200 yards
with searchlights and machine gun, plenty of razor wire,
That would be insensitive.
Bush signed the REAL ID Act which gives the DHS the authority to waive environmental restrictions to complete parts of the fence that money was already appropriated for. In addition, he supported Sensenbrenner's House Bill for the 700 miles of fencing. The Senate is whining that the fence will cost too much and will "send the wrong message to our neighbors". I am disappointed that they reduced the mileage on the fencing, but we can't blame Bush for that one.
It's a little ambiguous but it's King's interpretation not from Rove. Although I could easily believe Bush would say something like that.
The part about Bush being sincere when it comes to enforcement is ludicrous. Bush has never, till now, even talked about enforcement or done anything concrete about it.
For all you that don't know how this game works, the House ask for 700 miles, the Senate ask for 300 miles and in the end they walk away with 500 miles. Just a bit of info, 60% of the border is naturally uncrossable without a vehicle and the result for trying is death.
I'm with you. No more going along, rah rah, vote Republican.
If it is Amnesty Si!, it is Vote No!.
I basically agree with you. The only problem is this is exactly what GW has been doing the least 5 years. Leaving the border wide open to create a fair accompli, a situation where it would be "impossible, inhumane to deport 12 million". Actually a lie since it's more like 20 million illegal alien invaders and we can make them self-deport via employer sanctions. Which GW has purposely not enforced since he was first elected
George Bush only enforces the laws he likes!
Probably. But we could go ahead and raise taxes to cover the higher wages paid to union workers.
Don't shoot the messenger.
Triple layer fence...Sounds like a wire fence...so the criminals have to snip 3 times instead of once...hmmm
The point is too redirect illegals into areas that are either physically more dificult to cross or are easier to guard. I tink the 370 miles is a great start.
Mexican immigrants walk in line through the Arizona desert near Sasabe, Sonora state, in an attempt to illegally cross the Mexican-US border, April 2006.
The media said King said Rove said President Bush said...? That is a few too many he saids for me. I will only believe President Bush said that when I hear it from him. Whatever is going on- don't forget the media is not your friend.
The Senate blinks first. They must be sweating up there to even consider PARTIAL fencing.
