What about the LEGAL ones?

WHOO HOOO!....Phil over at Day's Limit is pretty pissed over GW's new Immigration Policy....head over there and give it a read....as someone who has went through the LEGAL procedure of getting a Visa for my Scottish spouse, I can totally understand...it took 6 months for her to get all the paperwork in order...it was a total fiasco....I had a dying Father at the time, and we were forced to involve our Senator in the mess...he finally pulled some strings to get her paperwork rushed through...so that she could arrive just a few weeks before my Father died...and, if we hadn't involved the Senator, it would have taken close to a YEAR for her paperwork to get approved....anyway, I don't normally talk politics...but...since I currently LIVE with a Legal Alien...*whack*...*Ouch! Sorry, Babe!!*

Here are a few choice quotes that I liked....heh...

and we are going to reward them for that? What about all those immigrants that came here legally and went through the painstaking process of becoming citizens? What does this say to them? A big “Fuck You Very Much” is what it says. “We know you came here legally and did everything that we asked you to do, but we really don’t give a shit.


We are going to pay them full benefits, even though they didn’t contribute long enough to deserve full benefits, and we are going to send the checks to them back in Mexico. Yeah, that makes sense. We are creating a fucking social welfare program for the entire planet. Real nice of ya “W”. Please feel free to increase my payroll taxes to help finance that one. Dick!

...dang, Phil...go get'em, tiger...

I'm not sure Bush's policy is as bad as it seems. I essence, Bush wants to sort through the 10 million or so illegals in this country and and tax the ones that are working hard and put them on the path to legality. Now if he'd also enact strong measures to insure that the criminal and lazy element among this group are deported I'd be fine with it.

Another great point about his new policy is that it does allow for fast-tracked citizenship for aliens who have served, honorably, in our armed forces. This makes sense, those guys are the ones we want as citizens.
