US And Mexican Leaders To Discuss Immigration
Jorge W. Bush will shortly be meeting with the incoming Mexican president Felipe Calderón and immigration is the stealth discussion topic of their meeting.
MEXICO CITY – The nearly 700 miles of fencing President Bush authorized for the US-Mexican border two weeks ago could overshadow other issues when Mexican president-elect Felipe Calderón makes his first visit to the White House on Thursday.
Bush wants to use the fence to demonstrate he's serious about border security so that he can argue for amnesty and a guest worker program. Never mind that next House Speaker and big time Open Borders advocate Nancy Pelosi might not allow funding of the fence.
Calderón, like many advocates for US Open Borders (but not for Mexico's southern border - Mexico's own immigration policy being built upon hypocrisy), tries to make the ridiculous claim that fences that keep people out are morally equivalent to fences that keep people in.
On a recent trip to Canada, Mexico's president-elect compared the fence to the "Berlin Wall," the former barrier between Communist East and democratic West Berlin.
"The most important thing for him is to end the monothematic tone [between the two nations]," says Luis Rubio, president of the Center of Research for Development, a think tank in Mexico City. He says the US-Mexican relationship, dominated by drug trafficking in the 1980s, now is being driven by differences over US immigration policy.
Bush is hoping that the big electoral victory by Open Borders supporters in the Congress due to the Iraq debacle can help him realize one of the big ambitions of his Manchurian Candidate presidency: A massive guest worker program combined with a massive amnesty.
The US border fence, meant to enhance security and deter illegal immigration, is one step in a comprehensive immigration reform plan that Bush hopes can later include a guest-worker program and amnesty plan for some undocumented immigrants. Half of the estimated 11 million undocumented migrants living in the US are believed to be Mexican.
Note to the Democrats: If Bush is for something it is usually a sign that it is a bad idea.
The moral equivalence of all border walls, or of all walls for that matter, would make freedom for aggression equal to freedom from aggression.
The freedom of Mexico to invade is not the kind of freedom that any American patriots should want to see.
Bush's diplomacy with Mexico has been so absurdly lacking in savoir-faire, that he drags the entire American diplomatic tradition into further humiliation, every time he meets with one of them.
Hasn't Mexico withdrawn from the Rio pact, and how, in that case, can the administration still pretend that we have 'good relations' with that enemy state which Bush calls an ally?
One good outcome of the election will likely be that the congress will not support the administration's pretenses of being capable of negotiating any advantageous foreign agreements whatever.
There were serious doubts that Bush wouldn't maneuver to discreetly kill the fence before it was built, and this was when the GOP controlled the Congress. I figured that with the recent election, the fence is now already a dead letter. After all, Bush doesn't want it, and why would be the Dems be all hot and bothered to stop an influx of future Dem voters and government dependents?
As I see it, the only hope is to prevent CIRA for another two years, with the desperate hope that a conservative who cares about American sovereignty gets elected president in 2008.
I can't believe it...we've probably got the three biggest scumbags ever running this country (Bush, Pelosi, Reid). All three of these motherf***ers are going to drive this country into the ground, with their support for bringing in millions of super-low productivity and dependent workers through open borders, support for reckless spending, and desire to massively increase old-age entitlements that we already can't pay for. Execution by hanging for high treason would be a light punishment for these three cockroaches, yet they are running the country. Today's young and middle-aged people are going to be paying...big time, that is if our country can survive their selling out this country Whether its for votes or a true belief in their nonsense or both, they are scum and I hope they pay.
