If Iraq is Bush’s War, Illegal Immigration is Congress’ Fault

According to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi Iraq is Bush's war even though Congress gave the authority to go to war with Iraq. However the immigration debacle is purely the Democrats and Congress' horrible mistake.

It’s the numbers stupid and your Congress set these numbers in play. Congress sets the numbers for immigration so this "broken immigration" situation is Congress’ broken immigration situation and this is the stupidest thing that anyone or any body of people have ever done to this country. And yes this immigration debacle is far more stupid than anything that President Bush has ever done! No wonder Congress is at a 14% all time historical low.

The late Rep. Barbara Jordan (D-TX) chaired a commission to study immigration in 1995 in which her committee recommendations would have been a part of the fix for immigration in this country. Imagine that Democrats doing something right.

Rep. Jordan's Commission called for zero illegal immigration and an end to chain immigration in America. Out of those recommendations legislation H.R. 2202 was written by a Democratic controlled House of Congress. What the nonpartisan Commission called for was a strategy of preventing all illegal entry into the United States. Democrats proposed a zero tolerance for illegal alien entry into the United States.

The day the full, Democratic controlled, House began consideration of H.R. 2202, the Clinton Administration announced its support for a amendment to the bill by Reps. Dick Chrysler, Howard Berman and Sam Brownback to eliminate all of the reductions of numbers from the bill thus "broken immigration" is the Democrat’s fault, "broken immigration" is Congress’ fault! It’s the numbers stupid! And Democrats and Congress blew it big time on immigration. Roy Beck of NumbersUSA explains:

Yet Another “Link”!

The pro-terrorist, anti-American, Democrat-
controlled Congress...........takes another step
in favor of calling a truce in the war on terror.
Next will come an all-out surrender, as we cut
and run from Iraq, in the Vietnam mode.

In a predominantly partisan vote, the
Democratic controlled Senate Judiciary
Committee will restore the right of habeas
corpus to terrorists, in direct conflict with the
Bush administration policy of detainment.

In their infinite wisdom(?), the liberals will
give to non-US citizens, captured on the
battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq, the
right to walk out of jail, and probably flee the
country before they can be tried. They will set
them "free" without any regard to determining
who among them represents a serious
danger to our way of life and our country.

Of course, why should this be a surprise to
anyone? The Democrats have shown over and
over again, that their only talent is to critique
what others have accomplished, while having
absolutely no concrete plans with which to
replace what they dislike, for the sole purpose
of votes!

Last election, they claimed that what the
country needed was a real change from the
evils of the Republican administration.
Well, it seems that we got what the liberals
wanted so desperately. We traded one kind of
corruption for a worse kind, a firm foreign
policy for a weak one, sensible anti-terrorist
action for distraction, and men of principle
for men of question.

But most of all, we traded our respect and
confidence, for a bag of beans. The voter
does indeed have a short memory!
