Hate to say it, but its Mr. Reagan’s father that opened the door to our current troubles. He is the one who basically stopped patrolling our Southern border and granted amnesty to illegals back in 1986. Back then, the GOP was more concerned about getting “cheap labor” to business than the long term political implications of flood our country with illegals.

Let’s face the ugly truth: we have lost control. The inmates are running the asylum and they will gain incrementally more control every year. Only a total crash of the System will change the equation. I actually think that’s inevitable, but it will be very painful for everyone.

It was unfortunate, that President Reagan was under continous pressure from the Rockefellor-Bush camp to satisfy their urges.

Utter bull squeeze.

Simpson Mazzoli provided for the boarder to be shut down if Reagan would grant a "one Time" amnesty.

The dems NEVER held their side of the bargain, surprise, surprise.

Same with TEFRA.

Boner will fall for the same on the taxmaggon situation coming up next month.
