Senate Messing Up
President Bush's plan for a "comprehensive approach" to immigration, outlined in a primetime speech last night, took one step forward today as the Senate rejected a call to secure the nation's borders before addressing other immigration-related concerns.
"Comprehensive immigration" is junk. It won't work. To help with the illegal alien problem we first must secure the border the best that we can. That is a job for the federal government, heck that is it's job. So I say first a bill that only deals with the border must past both houses. Then a bill is needed to deal with people hiring illegals. After that then we can discuss the 12 million here now. Trying to crame it all into one "comprehensive" bill is just stupid and a waste of time.
