The two top Republicans in Congress, House Speaker Dennis Hastert of Illinois and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee, folded on Tuesday and said they intend to pass immigration legislation that does not subject illegal aliens to prosecution as felons.
The House, which is more representative of the majority of American voters, passed legislation late last year that makes illegal immigrants subject to felony prosecution.
So, Hastert betrays his fellow representatives and Frist continues to disappoint in the leadership role as they cave in to pressure by socialists, anarchists and foreigners who would tell us how to run our country. If Frist is thinking of running for president, he has just managed to torpedo his own ship.
This entire debacle is playing out as if it has been scripted to delude the American people. It seems the decision to make citizens out of millions of illegal trespassers on our soil has already been made and now the play is in its final act.
The illegals are here because our government has deliberately refused to enforce existing law. The illegals will remain because the government deliberately refuses to enforce the will of the American people. What is going on in Washington is merely the lipstick on the pig.
