Immigration Bill Stalled in Senate

Hooray: “Landmark legislation offering eventual citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants suffered a potentially fatal blow Friday in the Senate.” — Immigration Overhaul Obstacle May Be Fatal

The AP unintentionally tells us what this immigration bill in the Senate really is: Amnesty for illegals. The American people don’t want illegal immigrants pouring through our borders. We want secure borders. Granting amnesty rewards people for breaking the law and encourages future law-breaking. We already gave them amnesty in 1986. It’s time to close the borders now.

Forget talks of a compromise bill. The only compromise involved in that kind of bill is our security. Secure our borders first. Then, we’ll talk.
