Ask a silly (rhetorical) question:
There is only one provision that has unanimous support: stronger border enforcement. I’ve seen senators stand up and object to the point system, to chain migration, to guest workers, to every and any idea in this bill — except one. I have yet to hear a senator stand up and say she is against better border enforcement.
Why not start by passing what everyone says they want?
A: because what our lying, sleazy politicos say they want and what they actually want are two very different things. Krauthammer knows this, of course.
No new laws until the old ones are enforced. Period. It won’t work out that way; in the end, the Grand Bargainers will get what they want, and the will of the people be damned. But at least the grifters and hacks ought to know they aren’t fooling anybody with this sham.
Update! Gotta love this line:
Fences work. That’s why people have them around their houses — not because homeowners are unwelcoming, but because they insist that those who wish to come into their domain knock at the front door.
Seems pretty simple, doesn’t it?
