The Face Of Cowardice

Source: WND
Saying the "reality of the situation" is that millions of illegal aliens are here to stay, presidential press secretary Scott McClellan today defended President Bush's belief that deporting "undocumented people" is infeasible.

WND asked McClellan at the White House press briefing: "The president is the chief executive charged with enforcing the laws of the United States. And the law says an illegal entrant is to be deported. Yet yesterday he said mass deportation wouldn't work. And my question: By articulating that policy, isn't the president violating his executive duties?"

Responded the spokesman: "Les, the president has made very clear that we have a responsibility to enforce our laws. We are also a nation of immigrants, and we can be both. We can enforce our laws … and we can be a nation of immigrants."

McClellan then outlined steps that Bush has taken to improve enforcement, but added, "We also need to look at the reality of the situation."

Continued McClellan: "We have – I think it's an estimated 12 million undocumented people in this country. There is an economic need that some of those people are filling, jobs that Americans are not wanting to do. And the president believes that if we're going to fix the immigration system, we need to do it in a comprehensive way. And that means including a temporary guest worker program, which will help relieve pressure off the border.
I don't have another word for this, do you?

This is cowardice in it's rankest form. I am embarrassed and ashamed that I voted for this man, has he done things I agree with, yes. However, on this he's so bad, so odious that all the rest is undone. I only hope when the damage is done that he will pay the price for these decisions, but I don't hold out much hope. Politicians never pay the price for their arrogance and the evil their policies cause.

We do.
