Today’s Required Reading

…I commend to all those presumptuous senators and congressmen the sardonic and wise words of Edmund Burke in his 1792 letter to Sir Hercules Langrishe: “No man will assert seriously, that when people are of a turbulent spirit, the best way to keep them in order is to furnish them with something substantial to complain of.” The senators should remember that they are American senators, not Roman proconsuls. Nor is the chairman of the Judiciary Committee some latter-day Praetor Maximus.

Tony Blankley cuts to the meat of the matter.
UPDATE: There were student protests in LA, Dallas and Phoenix yesterday.

“I’m here for my parents,” Juliana Rojo, 14, told the Associated Press. She said her parents are illegal immigrants. “They work hard. I just want them to be treated fairly.”

Senator Kyl from AZ has my vote.

The Senate bill would allow the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants now in the USA to become citizens eventually. They would have to prove they have jobs, pass a criminal background check, learn English, and pay fines and back taxes.
Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., said he cannot support the bill approved Monday by the Senate Judiciary Committee because it offers a chance at citizenship to workers who are needed only temporarily.

Pay back taxes?! Who are they kidding? Of course, that idiot Senator of ours is all for letting them stay. Every time he opens his goofus mouth, he makes me look like a genius for not voting for him. And dear Cardinal Mahoney ~ I think you’ve missed the point.

Like a number of the Judiciary Committee bill’s supporters, Mahony argued that it offers a more workable approach to a difficult problem. “How are you going to pick up and arrest 8 (million) to 11 million people?” he asked. “It’s not realistic.”

If they wore turbans and had private pilot licenses, he’d be wondering why we weren’t tougher on defending the borders.

When Illegal Is Right, What Is Wrong?
