This is bad news.....

Senate Panel Approves Immigration Bill
AP - The Senate Judiciary Committee approved sweeping election-year legislation Monday that clears the way for 11 million illegal aliens to seek U.S. citizenship, a victory for demonstrators who had spilled into the streets by the hundreds of thousands demanding better treatment for immigrants. Read on...

When will we realize that whether it be amnesty or a "path to citizenship", or whatever the hell you want to call it, that we cannot continue to have a half million, some say one million, come across our borders every year (not to mention that it will continue to grow in numbers if nothing is done) without it having a serious negative effect on our society. Maybe you don't think it is a problem now; but given that possibility, won't it at some time in the future, at this rate, if things do not change, become a problem?

Are we to wait until massive and serious problems, chaos and anarchy transpire? Won't it be a little too late? Now I know that there are some moonbats out there that hate this country and a development such as this is what makes your heart race and your groin tingle. But I am speaking to the non-koolaid drinking crowd that don't seem to have a problem with the status quo. Isn't there some tipping point for you where you say, "This has got to stop?"

The problem with new legislation, amnesty, etc. is that nothing else of importance gets passed to address the issue of massive border crossings. Close the floodgates first and then take the proper amount of time to deal with those that are already here in a manner that the majority of Americans are comfortable with.

To do otherwise, as we have been doing in the past, accomplishes nothing other than having some sort of amnesty every decade or two. But the politicians as I see it do not want to do anything about it and only try to mollify the general public with half-assed attempts.

UPDATE: National Review Online agrees with my position:
Editors: Enforcement First.
"Although we at National Review have never made a secret of our skepticism about amnesty, it’s a legitimate topic of debate. But that debate should begin only after we reassert control over immigration. Enforcement first."
