This is exactly the type of thing I've said all along about how the open borders crowd have approached our immigration problem and how (if at all) they are willing to try to solve it.
The political pressure to do something doesn't come from all of the illegals who want to get an express pass to citizenship, it comes from the US citizens crying out to their elected leaders to stop the flood of illegals. And as the pressure builds on those officials to secure the border in order to stop the flood, some of them try to take action, but then the other crowd that wants to grant amnesty says "only if you agree to make it a 'comprehensive' bill"...meaning we'll agree to secure the border if you agree a wave a wand and make everyone legal.
Same deal that they made with Reagan in 1986 with over a million illegals - only they never got around to the border security.
Now Arizona Senator John Kyl says Obama's told him point blank that he's playing for the same deal. (here's the video)
THIS is the type of thing that should be a scandal with the American people. A sitting President who says he doesn't want to do anything else to help enforce the law until he gets those who want it enforced to agree to give him what he wants.
So much for "preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution. read more »
