Bush Announces: "Damn My Supporters, Full Speed Ahead on Amnesty!"G. W. Bush has now completed his slide into complete lack of communication with his voters.....you know, the ones who twice put him in office!
The Examiner states it plainly.
I, for one, find my desire to see this bill scuttled to be paramount among the many opinions I hold! FIRST secure the borders!
In case you are one of those who want to cuddle with the illegals as "just plain folks seeking a job"......you need to read this little piece by Neal Boortz on his Neal's Nuze just today.....
"VIOLENT CRIME STILL INCREASING, THANKS TO ILLEGAL ALIENS
FBI officials are reporting that violent crime is still on the rise. Youth violence, gangs and gun crimes are largely to blame. In the first six months of 2006, violent crime rose 3.7 percent nationwide.
Now, wouldn't you like to own a gun in self-defense?
But wait! There's more! In a study done in summer of 2006, illegal aliens—or should I say criminals -- were linked to the rise in criminal activity in our country. Now ... get this: There is an average of 8 arrests per incarcerated illegal alien in this country. And these aren't just first offenders. Almost every single last one of them already had more than one arrest. And they are committing more than just one offense when arrested. You can average about 13 offenses per illegal alien. And then once they are arrested, American tax dollars are footing the bill for their incarceration. I am paying to house a criminal that isn't even a citizen of this country.
OK ... so you read that last paragraph, and you said: "No way Boortz. You're wrong. Either you're lying or you just misread the research." OK .. you have a few choices here. You can click on this link. It's an article written by Jim Kouri, a vice-president of the National Association of Chiefs of Police. Or you can just read this paragraph I lifted out of his article:
In the population study of a sample of 55,322 (incarcerated) illegal aliens, researchers found that they were arrested at least a total of 459,614 times, averaging about 8 arrests per illegal alien. Nearly all had more than 1 arrest. Thirty-eight percent (about 21,000) had between 2 and 5 arrests, 32 percent (about 18,000) had between 6 and 10 arrests, and 26 percent (about 15,000) had 11 or more arrests. Most of the arrests occurred after 1990.
Seal the borders."
Can I Get an A-MEN????
Kathryn Jean Lopez sums her recent article with a comment I find quite revealing about where this Bush-led fiasco is leading us:
" As initial details emerged about the immigration deal, conservatives were demoralized. (As folks read the bill, even moreso.) Readers have e-mailed me using the “I” word — impeachment. Most weren’t serious; but all were genuinely concerned. When Republicans like George W. Bush, and even the beloved conservative Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, give in to a vast amnesty plan, how much worse could the Democrats be? I hate the immigration issue for many reasons, but most practically because it may have just won the Democrats the presidency in 2008. "
