Update on The Illegals Issue

My last segment on the President’s May 15 Speech - Race Issues - led to some concern that I support the bill recently passed by the Senate. I want to be clear, that I do not support the Senate bill. The Senate’s bill seems to me to be no better than a hodge-podge of compromises, the worst kind where no one gets what is really needed, and all sorts of special-interest groups are able to grab from the cookie jar. I greatly prefer the House bill, especially since the House seems to much better understand that the issue must be broken up into its component parts to be properly addressed.

The important point I wanted to make in discussing the race aspects of the Illegals issue, is that there are important consequences to the way in which the issue is addressed. The issue must be focused on security, then immigration. The Republicans have allowed the Left to cast ths as a Civil Rights issue, which is being spun in a way which can only damage the nation.

It's ashame Polipundit couldn't see that we're really all on the same side.

Thank you for that clarification. If you don't mind, I'm going to link to it in my next post. Thanks again.

And the House Republicans are standing firm.

Good for them!
