Absolutely. And the borders should militarized.
Juan Jose, you can just kiss my little ole southern grits..
I agree it wasn't Rove who said that and it doesn't make sense when you read what Tony Snow said in the briefer. King should smarten up.
I'm beyond disgusted that someone who allow the "interpretation" of some silly House representative to make you believe that is directly what GWB said.
GWB is a man of tremendous character and class. Two traits that are sorely lacking among most men today in this Country.
That he is looking for a comprehensive and systematic reform process to this 40 year in the making problem simply shows he wants serious legislation on this issue. On the whole. He does not want to push certain aspects of this needed reform down the road. If we are going to take this issue on...lets take it on completely is what he is correctly proposing.
My personal opinion is that anybody who came here illegally as an adult, for any length of time, is forever barred from applying for citizenship. Period.
Ron, go to ---> THOMAS
You can search by Bill number, or Keyword, Rep, or Senator, etc.
Comprehensive translates into a refusal to enforce current immigration law and the desire to establish a guest worker program that would put the illegal trash already here on a path to citizenship.
It's a sellout and it's abhorrent.
If the administrations handling of the border problem is your idea of character and class I'd hate to see what you think is degenerate and tacky.
I don't agree. He is seriously addressing a 40 year in the making problem. His proposals to work harder to secure the border, reform the terribly flawed temporary workers permit program (from which a sizable segment of today's illegals come from) and to address those we are currently here illegally is exactly the right systematic process in my opinion.
But that's just my opinion..
I'm sick to death of these conservatives who say that any steps the President on border security are automatically bogus. Politics is the art of the possible and sometimes you take what you can get. And furthermore, it is a logical fallacy to say that border security and earned legalization to those already here are mutually exclusive. It is possible to walk and chew gum at the same time. Both sides of this debate make me sick. One side says only enforcement and don't realistically address the problem of people already here, the other side says that one should completely ignore the fact that illegal immigrants broke the law and that the US should not defend our borders. A pox on both your houses, I say!
Well then, you are in agreement with the great majority of Democrats. Congratulations! Meanwhile, I'm in agreement with the majority of Republicans.
""What we have here has become a symbol for the right wing in American politics," countered Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill."
While were at it let's build a fence around this jackass's house to keep him contained and doing no damage.
And it's not needed since they are combining enforcement with a "guest worker" program.
It will be little problem for illegals to go back and re-enter as legals. Their employers would even pay their expenses to do so in many cases.
I don't remember ever seeing such a crazy political debate!
we can build and defend other country's fences and borders(like south korea-complete with seismic detectors,fences,infrared,and minefields)
...but not our own borders.
