Dean Talks Tough on Border Issue

From the Washington Times:

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean yesterday called border security his party's top immigration priority for November.

"The first thing we want is tough border control," he said. "We have to do a much better job on our borders than George Bush has done. And then we can go to the policy disagreements about how to get it done."

Republicans reacted with surprise to Mr. Dean's announcement, which puts the DNC chief's views at odds with those of many Democrats in Congress.

"If Dean means what he says about border enforcement, that would put the Democrats somewhere to the right of President Bush on immigration," said Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican.

A spokesman for the Republican National Committee dismissed Mr. Dean's "newfound commitment to border security" as "not believable."

Amazing! All this leftest has to do is open his mouth and let a few lies ooze out and that is all that it takes to get to the right of President Bush on this issue. It worked for Hillary a few months ago too but she has given up that position now.

And a few days later I now see that Hillary has moved back to the right on illegal immigration and supports a border fence.

I don't believe a word she says but she did throw out one good idea that she must have swiped from Tom Tancredo. She wants any earned legalization plan to be delayed and tied to successful efforts at border enforcement. That is a great idea and would go along ways towards mollifying conservatives who fear of the 1986 betrayal when as soon as the amnesty was passed the promises of enforcement were forgotten.
