"All nations are 'nations of immigrants' "

So, the news today is that the Senate has voted to build 370 Mile of fence along the border with Mexico . . . AND
"endorsed a chance at citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants Wednesday by turning down an amendment that would have removed provisions allowing illegals in the country for more than two years to try for eventual citizenship."
In other words, AMNESTY.

Of course, some R.I.N.O.s swear this isn't amnesty:

"Let's stop the nonsense," said Hagel, addressing fellow Republicans. "You all know it's not amnesty."

McCain, addressing Vitter, said: "Call it a banana if you want to. ... To call the process that we require under this legislation amnesty frankly distorts the debate and it's an unfair interpretation of it."
Oh, please, enough with the Lib Language. We all know this is amnesty. One cannot get around the fact that it is amnesty without lying completely.

Of course, I'll leave it to Ann to really talk about Amnesty.

Here newest column is titled Read My Lips: No New Amnesty and here is an excerpt:

On the bright side, if President Bush's amnesty proposal for illegal immigrants ends up hurting Republicans and we lose Congress this November, maybe the Democrats will impeach him and we'll get Cheney as president.

At least Bush has dropped his infernal references to slacker Americans when talking about illegal immigrants. In his speech Monday night, instead of 47 mentions of "jobs Americans won't do," Bush referred only once to "jobs Americans are not doing" — which I take it means other than border enforcement and intelligence-gathering at the CIA. For the record, I'll volunteer right now to clean other people's apartments if I don't have to pay taxes on what I earn.

Also, someone must have finally told Bush that the point about America being a "nation of immigrants" is moronic. All nations are "nations of immigrants" — as Peter Brimelow pointed out brilliantly in his 1992 article in National Review on immigration, which left nothing for anyone else to say (Time To Rethink Immigration? ).
Do read the rest.
