Bush Immigration Speech

Filed under: International Politics — Robert @ 9:01 pm

No fence. No deportations. No realistic plan to get and keep control of our southern border.

For this conservative, no sale.

  1. What shocks me about the immigration issue is the stubborn incapacity of all citizens to get the smallest of facts right. The president’s speach was in line with his 2000 agenda. President Bush was elected on the platform that favors large corporations and he has always admitted he favored a guess worker program, favored the use of low wage foreign workers, and had no issue with oil companies making huge profits.

    So conservatives, your candidate is just doing what he said all along he was going to do. If there is one thing he is not, is a guy who changes his opinions.

    For some strange reason, people think Mexicans can apply legally for visas that allow them to work in the United States. That is just ridiculous. Even with a lawyer in Mexico and $10,000 in cash, there is no way to get to work here. So the question is not: “Why don’t they use the right channels?”

    The real problem is that the IRS cashes in Tax returns of known illegals, social security numbers were legally issued to illegals and today corporations are able to employ illegals without real fear. But again, George is coherent with his 2000 platform and next time, just vote for Shaun Hannity if you need a xenophobic idiot at the helm.

  2. Those are fair points, Vilon, but we had hoped that 9/11 had caused a reassessment in the President’s thinking.

    I had no idea that 9/11 was caused by illegal Mexican immigrants.

    Was Pearl Harbor caused by Moroccans?

    Things connect. In this case, the connection is an insecure border which can basically be waltzed across by anyone with reasonable physical resources who desires it. Tolerable in 2000, maybe. Not tolerable on 9/12/01 or thereafter.

    I’m still puzzled. How would a closed border have prevented 9/11?

    If that isn’t your argument, then what is?
