BUSH’S IMMIGRATION PET PHRASES

After the White House news conference this morning, Bill Kristol on Fox News praised President Bush’s remarks about “immigration reform” as “eloquent.” Beg to differ. The president’s open-borders statements were empty, garish platitudes strung together sloppily like cheap Christmas lights:

Illegal aliens “do the job Americans won’t do.” President Bush used that dog-tired phrase about a half-dozen times during today’s press conference as he defended his impending illegal alien amnesty plan. Mark Krikorian effectively puts this mindless rhetoric to rest here.

“Family values don’t stop at the Rio Grande.” Uh huh. Well, terrorists and gang members and drunken murderers and cop-killers don’t stop there either. And based on past and recent experience, granting amnesty to 13 million law-breakers will only result in more illegal immigration, not less.

We need immigration reform that “recognizes reality.” Rank-and-file immigration enforcement officials give a real reality check on the amnesty debacle here, here, and here.

As immigration enforcement veteran/former U.S. prosecutor Peter Nunez put it:

[W]e need to stop the talk of a coming amnesty, or of a guest worker program, both of which, by themselves, serve to encourage additional illegal immigration. What kind of message are we sending when we dangle that possibility before people desperate enough to put their lives at risk? Doesn’t this kind of talk also indicate that we really don’t care much about law breaking, that we don’t really care that much about the rule of law, that these immigration laws exist only as a token objection to the violation of our sovereignty?

Now, that is eloquent.
