USCIS. Pronounced as Us Kiss.
Here's another example of the INS / ICE being the worst-run agency in DC, with the possible exception of the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Anything in the DHS is a black hole (FEMA is in there too). IT was a mistake to create DHS, and Bush (who didn't like the idea) hasn't done a good job in getting anything to work in DHS.
Well stated by Steyn. As usual.
The requirements for immigration at the time many of our grandparents or great grandparents arrived here were basicall a certain (very modest) amount of money in your pocket, the address of somebody here with whom you could live, and no evidence of TB or other contagious diseases.
I'd be in favor of something that basically required firm identification from the parent country, absence of a criminal record or any ties to terrorism or radicalism (frankly, I'd be perfectly happy not to admit any more Muslims in general), and either enough money or enough family here to guarantee that you would not head directly for the nearest welfare office upon entering the country. Steyn is absolutely right: the entire system is broken, not just the Rio Grande part of it.

I need to e-mail Mark Steyn. Do you have a link to his address?
Steyn the prophet has spoken. Let the wailing and lamentations of the Bushbots commence.
Hastert has all but said this Senate scam is dead in the House. Ted Kennedy is about to have a mental breakdown over the news as we speak...
