Democrats Sell Their Souls for Illegal Immigrant Voters
Check out the chameleon in Hillary Clinton, who seems to have gone from her "tough stance on illegal immigration" just 18 months ago to sucking up at the "Illegal Alien," er, "Immigration" rally in New York:
Hillary November 2004: "I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants...People have to stop employing illegal immigrants. I mean, come up to Westchester, go to Suffolk and Nassau counties, stand on the street corners in Brooklyn or the Bronx. You're going to see loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work and construction work and domestic work."
Hillary April 2006: "I want to thank you for raising your voices and joining with people all over America to ask for fairness. Your faces are the faces of America...Your faces are the faces of those who give us a fair day's work — and often not for a fair day's pay."
But one can hardly blame the Republicans for their confusion. Here are some poll results where Americans are asked the big question - "What does Illegal Immigration do to this country?"
87% - Overburdens government programs and services
75% - Leads to an increase in crime
66% - Leads to an increase in terrorism
66% - Takes jobs away from U.S. citizens
54% - Changes the culture of the country
The latest Rasmussen Reports national opinion survey found that 57% of Americans want a wall or fence.... 31% disagree. So I aske again - where are OUR big rallies?
Anyway, I am actually starting to appreciate the massive financial, legal and logistical undertaking of the possible deportation of 11 million illegals - some with kids that have been born here. Although I hate to agree with John McCain, I agree that no one has a clue how we might accomplish this. Find 200,000 buses? Hire tens of thousands more INS agents? Spend tens or even hundreds of billions MORE of taxpaer money?
No - we need to start with the borders FIRST THING, then once that is accomplished we need to figure out how to legitimize and tax the continually employed, law-abiding illegals who deserve to earn the dream -- while rooting out the criminals and terrorists who are here to destroy that dream. That will be hard enough.
