As many are loathe to note, there are quite a few immigrants in this country. Actually, even more importantly there are quite a few immigrants in europe as well. Immigration is a difficult concept to really understand... After all, we're always reminded - "We ARE a country of immigrants".
However, I think immigration-as-such really refers to, in europe, the muslim problem and in the U.S. the growing hispanic population. As such, what we're dealing with here is the paradigm of those who don't like these immigrants, don't want them here, believe these immigrants to be taking the native populations' jobs, and consider these immigrants to often be security risks - and those who believe that those people who believe such nonsense are rascist xenophobes etc.
Well, this seems to be playing itself out on the capitol, where house and senate repubs' first majority move has been to repeal 'Bama's writ of amnesty to illegal immigrants.
Now, the Regime has responded that the POTUS will give the final veto when the legislation comes to his desk after being passed by the repub majority house and senate.
The Dysfunction of D.C. has never been so apparent, and this move by the POTUS is infantile and unproductive. It proves that the bi-partisanship promised by both sides after last November's elections has degenerated into dry chaff and empty promises. Ole 'Bama needs to recognize that the will of the entire house and senate is representative of public opine, and his promise to veto what would effectively just allow I.C.E. to do it's job is simply throwing in the towel and saying, "You know what, all that effort and time and money put into this immigration legislation by the house and senate - FUCK IT".
Thanks a lot.
The fact is, a lot of the terrorism problem is connected to the immigration problem, and offering amnesty to illegal immigrants only perpetuates both problems, not to mention creates - often - a nightmare for Law Enforcement. I mean we've all seen just how criminal the hispanic counter-culture is, right? I mean jesus, there's gangs flowing over the border and now Obama wants to give their border jumper babies amnesty? It's patently ridiculous.
So all in all,
just another case of D.C. Dysfunction.
Guess we'll have to wait until the big election year to get anything done.
VOTE CHRISTIE!!!! DDU 2015
