Bush on Immigration

President Bush:

We have a comprehensive strategy to reform our immigration system. We're going to secure the border by catching those who enter illegally, and hardening the border to prevent illegal crossings. We're going to strengthen enforcement of our immigration laws within our country. And together with Congress, we're going to create a temporary worker program that will take pressure off the border, bring workers from out of the shadows, and reject amnesty.

The only job I can think of that American's won't do seems to be the President's. He is absolutely derelict in his Constitutional duties to protect our borders and enforce our laws.

His self-congratulations yesterday on enforcement was unbelievably disgusting. First, he has done damn little and the illegal immigration problem has gotten far worse on his watch. And second, what little he has done was rammed down his throat by Congress. None of the increases in the Border Patrol were requested in his budgets. And his positive self-assessment of his efforts on interior enforcement redefined disingenuous.

Given the President's dismal record, it is almost impossible to take anything he said yesterday about enforcement seriously. It was just boob bait part of his bait and switch guest worker shamnesty. Once he gets his "not an amnesty" amnesty and an unlimited supply of cheap, easily exploitable, taxpayer subsidized, ignorant third world labor for his elite Chamber of Commerce buddies, enforcement will be quickly forgotten.

Judging from the commentary on most conservative forums, the boobs aren't taking the bait.

When President Bush explains how it will be possible six years from now to force the guest workers to return home when it is supposedly impossible and prohibitively expensive now, then we will know that he might be trying to sell something other than snake oil. Until then, we can be pretty certain that there is no intent for these guests to ever leave.
