This Looks Good

Over at The Corner, NR editor Rich Lowry posted this:

“FRIST ORDERS BORDER SECURITY FIRST”

Encouraging—from Washington Times:

Majority Leader Bill Frist, frustrated by the sluggish debate over immigration reform at the committee level, plans to introduce a bill that deals solely with border security as early as today.

Mr. Frist's bill, according to aides on both sides of the aisle, does not include a guest-worker provision or a process for handling the 12 million illegal aliens already in the U.S., divisive topics that have stalled immigration legislation in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
If Senator Frist could get this pushed through---with NO amnesty (in any form), I would be more amenable to voting for him if he runs for President. Illegal immigration is a very big issue for me. President Bush has been a VAST disappointment in that area.
