Reality may be a bitch, but it cannot be ignored, right? If we cannot deport 11 million people,how should we deal with them? Does continuing their illegal status make any sense? It may discourage further illegal immigration but a secure border would do a much better job of that,would it not?
Neither of these positions is acceptible to Dems. The former would deny a potential Dem voter the right to vote, and the latter would shut of the supply of same. The Repubs want that secure border,a goal I see as mandatory.Why should the USA be the only major world power to allow unimpeded immigration? But the Repubs are totally out to lunch on immigrant (NOT immigration) policy. The Repubs need to address this issue NOW before the Dems crucify every Repub candidate (other than Newt) on this stupidity while they demonize Newt for everything else.
I believe that permanently classifying over 11 million people as criminals is un-American, ugly, stupid, and unacceptible. I am not a "compassionate" guy. I actually don't care about illegals or their children. I care about not doing obviously stupid things. We have seen TOO much of that in the last few years. The Repubs can stop doing a stupid thing now (ignoring this issue or bs'ing about it) before the elections and get the "return to sanity" movement started in earnest.
And if you disagree with me, you are a criminal that should be beaten to death with a shovel.
