First, STOP The Flood!

Peggy Noonan said it so well, I can but repeat it here.....

"We should stop, slow down and absorb. We should sit and settle. We should do what you do after eating an eight-course meal. We should digest what we've eaten.

We should close our borders. We should do whatever it takes to close them tight and solid. Will that take the Army? Then send the Army. Does it mean building a wall? Then build a wall, but the wall must have doors, which can be opened a little or a lot down the road once we know where we are. Should all legal immigration stop? No. We should make a list of what our nation needs, such as engineers and nurses, and then admit a lot of engineers and nurses. We should take in what we need to survive and flourish.

As we end illegal immigration, we should set ourselves to the Americanization of the immigrants we have. They haven't only joined a place of riches, it's a place of meaning. We must teach them what it is they've joined and why it is good and what is expected of them and what is owed. We stopped Americanizing ourselves 40 years ago. We've got to start telling the story of our country again."

Now that that has been said, I'd ask my readers only to look into their own hearts and see if they believe Bush and the Dems when they say the new bill will do something to control Illegal Immigration....

Is there a chance in hell that the new bill will stem the flow, control borders, or track employers????? It didn't work in the 80s, nor the 90s....and it will not work now. Bush cares not. Time to hobble this lame duck!
