God Bless Them, Every One

President Bush says that part of the solution to illegal immigration "must" include a way for those already in the United States but without legal authorization to be given that status.

"We will conduct this debate on immigration in a way that is respectful to our heritage," he said at a recent White House event honoring Hispanic Heritage Month. "We are a nation of law, and we will enforce our law.

What a crock. I hope everyone realizes what an absolute charlatan is sitting in the Ovoid Office. I'd laugh myself to tears, if this weren't a matter of national and cultural extinction. Why "must" invaders be given legal status? Please elaborate, senor presidente. I'll listen. Why not just say: "We are a nation of law, and we will enforce that law when it does not conflict with elitist, multicultural agendas." It's exponentially more honest.

"But at the same time, we must remember that in order to secure our borders, in order to make sure we fulfill our heritage, immigration reform must be comprehensive in nature. We must understand that you can't kick 12 million people out of your country; that we must figure out a way to say to those that if you're lawful and if you've contributed to the United States of America, there is a way for you to eventually earn citizenship."

What does immigration reform have to do with securing our borders? They're two separate issues. It's just gobbledegook. He mentions our heritage in one breath, and in the next, insists that we cannot expel 12 million illegal aliens. As Nell Carter said, "Gimme a break." He doesn't even feel obligated to explain why kicking these people out is an unworkable idea. He proclaims, and we "must" accept, right? As for his "if you're lawful" remark, doesn't he mean "if you become lawful?" Becoming lawful, of course, means getting a pass for making raspberries at our laws.

Santa Anna Bush: "People ought to be given a chance to get at the back of the citizenship line and have a chance."

Metaphorical sophistry. This is like pleading the case for twelve-year-olds queuing up at the local strip club. They shouldn't even be in line; and those who typically are meet the criteria of entry--i.e., are "legal."

"And so I assure my friends here that I will – we will enforce the border as people expect us to do. But as we do so, we'll do so in a humane way, in a way that honors that great tradition of the United States of America, one nation under God," Bush said.

Translation for "humane": We'll ignore your infractions and contempt for the rule of law. If you can make it across the Rio Grande, towel yourself off, cuz you're a shoo-in, Manuel.

I like what one guy said on his blog, as quoted in the article: "Dear Mr. President," he wrote. "You need to give a blanket pardon to all criminals that break our laws. Or, enforce our laws. You shouldn't pick and choose which laws are OK to violate."

More from Open-Borders Bush: "They should not be given an automatic path to citizenship. This is amnesty, and I oppose it. Amnesty would be unfair to those who are here lawfully, and it would invite further waves of illegal immigration. We will find a rational middle ground between automatic citizenship for illegal immigrants and mass deportations of people who've been living here for many years with jobs, families, and deep roots in our country," he said then.

Don't kid yourself that he opposes amnesty. What he opposes is an open admission of his support for it. He likes dressing it up in more respectable clothes and engaging in the semantic equivalent of Twister. If amnesty is unfair to those who came here lawfully, why is allowing the continued presence of those who came unlawfully not unfair? I love his contention that illegals with a long history in our country deserve treatment equal to that of citizens--and make no mistake, that's what he's saying. Otherwise, his words have no meaning.
