Carlsbad, Calif. -- Republican National

rising anti-immigrant sentiments in the debate over border security
and illegal immigration, suggesting that the GOP risks being
on the wrong side of history and electoral politics alike if
it embraces an exclusionary message.
Lie: "Temporary Workers" Will Secure The Border
As Peter Brimelow blogged Monday, President
Bush has returned to his vomit Monday with the same old "Temporary
Worker Program" business. Unfortunately, it's nothing more
than the same old lies, damned lies, and spin. -- I took the
liberty of marking the, let's say spin, in his speech.

this Presidency -- Why Bother?

reform doesn't cut it
...The problem with this stance is that
illegal aliens are not citizens, nor are they law-abiding. By
being here, they have already broken the law and need to be deported.
The president should realize that illegal immigration does pose
a serious threat and the time for being compassionate is over.
Either they wait in line...
...Here in California, if we add-up the
expenses of just the basic components of illegal immigration

Bush's border scheme won't work
...For one thing, his plan is not new.
It is the same temporary guest-worker program he unveiled in
January 2004. It has only been repackaged with more emphasis

sounds to many in Bush's own conservative base like an amnesty
like others passed since the 1980s...
