The immigration bill

No matter how much lipstick Washington tries to slap onto this legislative pig, it’s not going to win any beauty contests. In fact, given Congress’s track record, the bill will probably get a lot uglier -- at least from the public’s point of view. And agreeing to policies before actually seeing what the policies are is a heck of a way to do business.

We should scrap this “comprehensive” immigration bill and the whole debate until the government can show the American people that we have secured the borders -- or at least made great headway. That would give proponents of the bill a chance to explain why putting illegals in a more favorable position than those who play by the rules is not really amnesty.

From Fred Thompsons latest.

If we do not have a closed border, or an enforcable law, (a thousand pages is not enforcable) we are kidding our selves with ANY immigration bill. Who are we taking care of anyway? Mexico is shipping their poorest to us, who then send cash south, to support the economy of a monumentally corrupt country! By extension we are supporting the rich and government of Mexico!

The most reasonable idea from my point of view, would be to herd all the folks with out a working visa back to where they came from. Let them walk back the way they came, and apply at the border for work. Then start counting noses.
