The Colorado Congressman tries to make America the world's biggest gated community.

"We have a supply and a demand problem. The supply problem is coming across the border. We are in this bill doing something very specific about that with the inclusion of the amendment, with the passage of the amendment, to build some barrier along at least 700 miles of our southern border. I hope we continue with that, by the way, along the entire border, to the extent it is feasible, and the northern border we could start next."
--Rep. Tom Tancredo (R., Colo.)
So there you have it. Tom Tancredo has done everyone a favor by stating plainly the immigration rejectionists' endgame--turn the United States into the world's largest gated community. The House took a step in that direction this month by passing another immigration "reform" bill heavy with border control and business harassment and light on anything that will work in the real world....
...President Bush has said repeatedly that he'll only sign a comprehensive immigration reform bill; that means creating legal pathways for foreign labor to enter the country and fill jobs Americans simply won't do anymore. Regrettably, the White House, in a sop to the throw-'em-all-out faction, praised the House vote. By voicing no disapproval of these over-the-top provisions, Mr. Bush legitimizes the forces that will make it hard to pass useful reform. And so a highly divisive problem may fester without solution into the next elections. At some point, the president of the United States will have to get behind the Statue of Liberty or Tom Tancredo's wall.

I wonder what he thinks about our plans to help build a wall across the Dominican Republic to keep out Haitians?
I wonder how enthusiastic the folks at the WSJ would be about unfettered immigration if I started hiring illegal immigrants to steal copies of their newspapers from people's doorsteps and hack into the WSJ website to get access to their on-line articles that are only available to paid subscribers.
Seems search is no longer our friend.
So you support the Bush amnesty?
See the Wall Street Journal still pushing that "let 'em all in, big business knows all" line.
Do not see this in editorials. Where is it posted?
I posted the link to it! USE SEARCH
For Christ's sake man, it's currently on the front page of FreeRepublic.
A republic that refuses to abide by the will of the people is not representative.
A President who willfully refuses to enforce the laws has violated his oath of office.
It is now but not when the dup was posted. Whatsup with the cusses?
The Globalists will never allow this to happen.
I am disappointed by the article from the WSJ.
I operated a small business in the 80's and we were frequired to check citizenship of all hires even though we were a union shop with people 30 years in the union.
The fine for first offense was $10,000, not a problem, I didn,t hire illegals.
Expected to find posted editorials in ..... "editorials".
FR spreading a lot of hate and discontent this morning. Whatsup with that?
"It is now but not when the dup was posted."
Even if it wasn't under the editorial section, it was still on the first page of FreeRepublic.
Man, some people here can be really harsh. LOL.
