Cornyn, Kyl seek $3.5 billion more for security

Crossposted from The Uncooperative Blogger:

From The Washington Times:

Two of President Bush's most loyal supporters in Congress yesterday asked him to request that more than $3.5 billion in "emergency" funding be spent immediately on securing the border -- rejecting the White House's assertion that enough is being done along the border.

Republican Sens. John Cornyn of Texas and Jon Kyl of Arizona -- who have long shared Mr. Bush's view that immigration reform should include a guest-worker program as well as increased border security -- said "comprehensive" legislation is dead this year unless the federal government proves that it is serious about enforcing current immigration laws by spending billions along the border.

"What we are offering today is what I believe is the last best hope for a comprehensive immigration reform to pass before the end of the year," Mr. Cornyn told reporters yesterday.
It is always the same, even when something good is done in the Senate, it comes with something bad. The American people do not want a "comprehensive" bill. They do not want a path to citizenship or an EXPANDED guest worker program, especially one with a path to citizenship.

We do want the border secured like Fort Knox, but not the rest of it.

Fact: It will cost more to process those here towards citizenship than it would cost to deport them.

Fact: No one with a brain is happy about the concept of almost doubling our population over the next 20 years, which a "comprehensive" bill would make happen.

The President keeps insiting on a "comprehensive" bill so let us give it to him.
  • Secure the border by any means necessary. This includes the Military.

  • Stiff penalties for employers, which are actually enforced.

  • No taxpayer funded programs for illegals or their families. (including school for children of illegals and non-emergency medical care for any illegal)

  • No "Anchor Babies" (no automatic citizenship for children of illegals born in the US)

  • No path to Citizenship in any name or form for those here illegally.

  • No Guest worker program until the above measures are put in place and the need can be PROVEN

  • English only education and the official language of the USA

How do you like my "comprehensive" immigration reform Mr. President?
