Bush ignores immigration at his peril
That is the message coming from some on the right. John Fund writes in the WSJ that there is a great deal of concern over unchecked immigration which is now a national security issue. John O pointed out that Hillary Clinton is running to the right of Bush on immigration.
Anti-immigration is not a position I would want to associate myself with. Too many people of questionable character hide their prejudices behind this issue. However, controlling our border is necessary for the security of our nation. Bush will need to address this at some point and I am hoping there will be a compromise that will allow a guest worker program and a secure barrier for our borders. Triangulating Hilllary aside, a terrorist attack carried out on our soil by illegal immigrants that had crossed our border would be Bush's fault. He has had plenty of time to sort this out.
