Yes, the illegal immigration issue is a bi-partisan one, but probably not in the way the poster of this thinks...
Both the House and Senate passed immigration legislation, but only the Senate bill contained a path toward citizenship for undocumented workers. The differences between the House and Senate bills need to be worked out in conference, but conservative hard-liners have successfully deadlocked talks for several weeks. Now, it looks as if Bush may placate enforcement-only advocates and back off his support for comprehensive reform:What I find fascinating, and this is a question I've asked before, why won't the left, the same left who you may recall loathe Bush with a white hot hate, why won't they beat him over the head with illegal immigration? This is an issue in which he's flopped around piteously, lied, changed his tune, attempted to subvert the language and more than anything the White House has not been able to find a message that's a winner with the American people.
In fact, this person quotes approvingly the White House 's claim that the McKennedy bill was a bi-partisan victory. How many other times would any lefty link the White House site so approvingly, inquiring minds want to know?
But what's of peculiar interest to me is found in the comments section. It's a really good debate, well reasoned, a lot of well made points, no I don't agree with all of them, but there's nothing moonbatty in there. Take a look and tell me what you think.
