    Put the 844-page Immigration Bill on ICE for a while

    Put the 844-page Immigration Bill on ICE for a while

    And the reason we need “immigration reform” urgently is?

    I’m getting very uncomfortable with the rush to vote on an 844-page bill.

    Let it hang out in the air for a while.

    If it doesn’t stink, the fresh air and sunshine won’t hurt it.

    If it does stink, the fresh air and sunshine will do it good.

    Ted Cruz is asking hard questions and challenging assumptions, and is being demonized for it. That tells me much of what I need to know.

    Chuck Schumer is clucking like he’s the King Rooster. That tells me the rest of what I need to know.

    Update 4-23-2013: From Politico, you see why Schumer is clucking, Immigration reform could be bonanza for Dems:

    The immigration proposal pending in Congress would transform the nation’s  political landscape for a generation or more — pumping as many as 11 million new  Hispanic voters into the electorate a decade from now in ways that, if current  trends hold, would produce an electoral bonanza for Democrats and cripple  Republican prospects in many states they now win easily.

    Remember, we are not talking about 11 million new voters who are here legally; if organic electoral growth were at issue, that would be entirely legitimate.  But we are talking about giving a bonanza of currently illegal voters to the Democrats through immigration “reform” and a pathway to citizenship for people who broke our laws to get here.

    If you’re posing a bill and you look to your left and Democrats are cheering you on, you *might* want to review what you’re doing.

    Has Rubio turned into spineless DC clay so soon? Must be some kind of record.

    […] reform opponents will add the national security angle to their opposition arsenal. Any bill that emerges will be so tough that Barack Obama won’t sign […]
