Borders Held Hostage to “Immigration Reform”


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.

Allahpundit at Hot Air is all over this, as is Fausta’s Blog, but it’s so important that I think it really needs to be disseminated as widely as possible as quickly as possible.

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.

    It is not JUST about the borders. We need interior enforcement. We need the “you are committing a crime by bei8ng in our state if you are here ilegally” mentaqlity. We need this sort of law a s a federal law, if it is not already. Why??? Because it is estimated that 40% of all illegal aliens came here legally on visas and stayed (probably planned) here after their visas expire. But make no mistake, they are just as much illegal aliens as the border jumpers.
