This stupid, idiotic, foolish so-called "comprehensive" immigration package is bound to be bad news for the GOP, who simply cannot get it through the blocks of stone that they (laughingly) call "heads" that people are sick and frickin' tired of borders that just about any Juan, Jose, or Carlos can walk across.
Fred, as usual, nails it:
The fact is our border and immigration systems are still badly broken. We were reminded of this when Newsweek reported that the family of three of the men, arrested last week for allegedly plotting to kill American military personnel at Fort Dix, New Jersey, entered the U.S. illegally more than 20 years ago; filed for asylum back in 1989, but fell off the government’s radar screen when federal bureaucrats essentially lost track of the paperwork. Wonder how many times that’s been replicated?See why I like Fred so much?
Is it any wonder that a lot of folks today feel like they’re being sold a phony bill of goods on border security? A “comprehensive” plan doesn’t mean much if the government can’t accomplish one of its most basic responsibilities for its citizens — securing its borders. A nation without secure borders will not long be a sovereign nation.
Anyway, this probably spells the end of McCain's campaign, because he's supporting this monstrosity masquerading as an answer to a problem.
And Fred once again looks like another Great Communicator, which we need very much.
