Sounds great to me. How are you going to incarcerate the millions of people who are caught and charged with a felony?Originally Posted by js33
Don't put all of this on Bush like he is the only one not doing anything about it. It is probably the one thing I disagree with him about the most...but the democrats are just as bad on this issue. When it comes time to vote and put their vote where their mouth is, you will not find any one who will touch this with a ten foot pole on the democrat side. You watch.Originally Posted by js33
And I would speculate that Bush's motivation has les to do with "wanting cheap labor for his corporate buddies" (...just give it up already)...and more to do with a political move of not wanting to piss off the hispanic voting population for the Republicans in upcoming elections. This is the reason why the democrats ultimately won't go there either at the end of the day either. Look at California for a current example of that. The democrats have been running this state and its legislature for decades...and illegal immigration here is about as bad as it can be. Even Arnold can't do a anything about it when he has the legislature stacked against him on this issue. That is why he has chosen to go to the people with referendums so often in attempts to bypass the legislature's democratic monopoly.
Illegal immigration is a BIG problem and needs to be dealt with using drastic measures in my opinion...but politics and those election considerations will ultimately win out over a heated topic such as this I'm afraid.
