Take a Deep Breath: Immigration
By Rich Galen

The Immigration Bill which was announced with great fanfare yesterday will (a) be about 738 pages long and (b) will not pass the House as it is currently written. Amendments anyone? This deal is a long, long way from being done.... more.


  • With all of the focus on illegal immigrants centered around how “we are a nation of immigrants”, how much we need them to do “jobs that Americans won’t do”, how much they “have contributed to our country in the past” and how they are “just like us, seeking jobs to raise their families”, et al, one is left wondering why, for these very reasons, none of the illegal immigrant advocates are talking about enhancing, streamlining nor increasing our legal immigration process.

    The above are, to be sure, precisely why legal immigration is desirable, yet virtually all of those who exploit them do so to advocate for legalizing illegal immigrants. To my mind this gives clear doubt as to the sincerity of their intentions if not the quality of their intelligence. If those intentions are truly based on their stated rationale then legal immigration reform should be foremost on their agenda. That it is not even present on that agenda is troubling to me.

  • You are exactly right. It makes one think that there is (are) another (other) agenda/agendas.

    One of the comments thrown out by the left and by a number of people on the right (and some whom I respect greatly) when it comes to discussing the 12 million + illegals already here .... and it drives me absolutely CRAZY .... is the argument .... "well we can't find and deport them all"

    Who in the hell says and thinks we can find and deport them all today, or tmorrow for that matter?

    And what kind of argument is that anyway? Perfection is the rule? If the resolution is not perfect, we don't act? What the hell is that all about?

    If the rule was perfection, there would never be new legislation and criminals would never be caught ... because we certainly can't catch them all. How insane!!

  • Correct H-H. And we can find and deport at least as many of them as we find unregistered handguns or Federal income tax scowflaws. Examples abound and they all come from Liberals propensity to arrived at a conclusion emotionally and rationalize it logically after the fact.
