Nonsense On Stilts AKA Amnesty Not A Sure Thing!

President Bush heads back to Yuma, Ariz. in a continued effort to sell his nation killing amnesty...
President Bush returns to work Monday on the volatile issue of immigration, where his hope for a legislative breakthrough is complicated by cold relations with Congress.The hard truth is this: The best thing we can hope for right now is status quo ante. Any bill that is passed right now, no matter what will amount to a love in for our crispy, delicious invaders and a screw job for the American people.
Bush will be back in Yuma, Ariz., to inspect the construction of border fencing and to push for the creation of a guest worker program and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. The trip serves as a bookend to the visit Bush made to the same southwest desert city last May.
It also comes as tension rises over a new immigration proposal tied to the White House.
Bush’s team is privately working hard to rally votes for what Bush calls comprehensive reform - a mix of get-tough security with promises of fair treatment for undocumented residents.
The Democratic-led Congress, eager to show some accomplishment on a core issue, wants to get a law passed. So does Bush, who is seeing opportunities to advance his agenda shrink.
Yet immigration is a sticky issue, and the fault lines don’t fall along party lines.
With up to 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., lawmakers haven’t agreed on how to uphold the law without disrupting lives, eroding the workforce and risking political upheaval.
Bush is hopeful for a legislative compromise by August. He will make his case at a point along the Yuma Sector Border, a 125-mile stretch overlapping Arizona and California.
The president’s relations with Congress these days have been soured by the war in Iraq. He is at odds with Democratic lawmakers over a bill to extend war funding in Iraq and Afghanistan.
On immigration, the White House has been quietly trying to build momentum.
Administration officials, led by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, have been meeting privately for weeks with Republican senators. That expanded to a meeting in late March with key senators from both parties.
Here's how we need this to play...The longer it takes to pass a bill the more frustrated our delightful invaders will grow, and ultimately they will get violent.
This is what we're waiting for, and if you know your history you will understand why I say this. At this point our elite asshats aren't scared, though they should be, but higher education and intelligence do not necessarily go hand in hand. When they're scared, and only then, is the time we want a bill to be passed.
