Skip to comments.Why Immigration Reform Is The Panama Canal Treaty Redux

Im pretty sure it was my first Washington mentor, the great M. Stanton Evans, who told meand perhaps originatedthe famous story of a senior Senate aide explaining American democracy to a Russian visitor shortly after the Soviet Union broke apart in 1991. The story is probably apocryphal, but like Xenophons re-telling of Cyrus the Great, or Machiavellis subtle mis-tellings of so many stories, it contains the effectual truth of the matter:
Its true, we have a two-party system in America: The Evil Party, and the Stupid Party. And every once and a while the Evil Party and the Stupid Party get together to pass something really evil and stupid. Thats called bipartisanship.
It would seem the perfect description of the Gang of Eight and immigration reform. Please save us from bipartisan gangs.

Quite apart from Rubios bilingual double talk, the bill itself says in so many words that a lack of border security is expected by its sponsors, since provision is made for that very outcome. The legislation says that if, five years out, the border is not secure, a special commission will be set up to look into the matter (a commission that, on the language of the bill, would be toothless).
Also, even if border security could somehow be established, that wouldnt remedy the countless defects of the legislation. It is shot through with provisos that would swell the number of aliens on a path to citizenship to three or four times the 11 million illegals now in the country (if that is in fact the true number) . Most obvious of these are chain immigration aspects that will bring in and legalize the spouses and children of illegals, but there are many others of like nature.
RUBIO is PHONY Republican but a STAUNCH HISPANIC!! RACE beats out COMMON SENSE!!!!
Instead of Rubios lying face and voice spewing the bilge about this monstrosity on tv and radio,some sane patriots should be showering the air waves with the provisions in the bill that provides free lawyers for illegals with tax payer funds for breaking the law,as well as free tourism funds for Harry Reid’s casino pals in las Vegas,what the hell does that have to do with immigration reform? Or how about the democrat campaign committee getting millions to set up summer jobs programs for 16 to 24 year olds just in time for the mid term elections? What does that have to do with immigration reform?
This is really bad,talk about the IRS,NSA,scandals,this bill is an outright assault against the Freedoms that men and women have caught and died for over the decades,it is an Obamanation.
