And we might as well say it in plain English: our national border security is being held hostage to an effort at amnesty for a massive number of illegals.
Not all Congressmen are afraid to meet their constituents. Sen. John Kyl (R-AZ) is one such. Last Thursday, he held a Town Hall meeting in North Tempe, and discussed, among other things, border security, and an initiative that I had not heard of, Operation Streamline, which is the concept that rather than sending illegals back to where they came from when they’re caught, they go to jail. What a concept! Kyl makes a good case for why this works, and why it should be expanded to include more border areas.
But of course the kicker (which really is no surprise) is what Sen. Kyl reports that the President told him in a one-on-one meeting recently:
OBAMA: The problem is, if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.
As you watch the video, listen to the audience reaction at the point where Kyl quotes Pres. Obama.
Americans are being taken for a ride of massive proportions with this administration of thugs, grifters, and “what’s-in-it-for-me” politicians; and come November 2012, a lot of people are going to be demanding in the voting booths that we change course and get out of this damned handbasket.
