As congress gets ready to leave Washington headed for their home states, they will pat themselves on the back for passing legislation on a 700 mile fence across the U.S. Mexican border. They could have passed comprehensive immigration legislation months or years ago, but they wait until the last minute and pass a bill they hope will win them favor with voters at home.
A little review is sometimes good. In The American Daily, David Tatosian reminds us of the 2004 elections, where George W. Bush won 51% of the vote and then proceeded to say this:
In answer to a question on illegal immigration at a White House Q and A, the President stated, “…First, we want our border patrol agents chasing crooks and thieves and drug runners and terrorists, not good-hearted people who are coming here to work. And therefore, it makes sense to allow the good-hearted people who are coming here to do jobs that Americans won’t do a legal way to do so… we ought to have a system that recognizes people are coming here to do jobs that Americans will not do… Family values do not stop at the Rio Grande River… People are coming to put food on the table, they’re doing jobs Americans will not do… legalize the process of people doing jobs Americans won’t do; take the pressure off of employers so they’re not having to rely upon false Ids… Our people are compassionate. The system we have today is not a compassionate system. It’s not working…”In an instant the President of the United States destroyed the shaky majority of American citizens that had reelected him. That he did so to fulfill the morally impoverished desires of illegal aliens indicates a tragic and dangerous character flaw that cannot, and will not be ignored.
That he continues to pander to those illegals, despite the outcry and opposition of a vast majority of American citizens (far exceeding 51%) is not simply outrageous and indictable, it is evil. (read it all)
Well ‘evil’ is a little harsh, but I know where he is coming from. He goes on to say, ” . . . thank the President for his candor. What other President, King, Prime Minister or Caliph in history had dedicated himself so blatantly to the expatriation of his own citizens for the benefit of foreign nationals?” Obviously voters will remember this when they vote in November 2006 and again in 2008.Local activists protest book-signing by Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist
The signs read, “No Terrorist Racism in Ventura County,” “Shame on You Borders” and “No Human Being is Illegal.” The shouts from the crowd of approximately 30 protestors outside of Borders Book Store in Thousand Oaks ranged from the boilerplate “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, the Minutemen have got to go” to an angry “Racists go home” to an even more creative “Down with the geriatric fascist.”And what was all the commotion about?
Jim Gilchrist, founder of the highly controversial anti-illegal immigration group, the Minuteman Project, was about to make a book-signing appearance at the store. The Minutemen, considered by many to be vigilantes, have made headlines by organizing civilian patrols of the U.S.-Mexico border. Gilchrist’s new book, co-authored by Jerome Corsi, Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America’s Borders, is a first-hand account of the authors’ views on what they consider America’s lax immigration policies.

Despite the heated rhetoric, the book signing and protest concluded without altercation. Osmond felt the demonstration was a success and was encouraged by what he felt was an “energetic turnout.” –By STEPHANIE KINNEAR, Ventura County Reporter
