House Speaker Dennis Hastert
Duck Session Looms Large
We said Bush would win. He did. (We
hope we are wrong about the terrorist attack.) Proposition 200
won in Arizona. Now the illegal immigration battle moves to the
upcoming Lame Duck session of Congress when the immigration provisions
will be settled one way or another.
Country -- August 3, 2004
Dennis Hastert: "...I was an advocate of putting
the military on the border of putting a fence along that border,
not to keep people out but to move people in in an orderly way
so you can check to see who is coming in... And I don't favor
an amnesty because when you create an amnesty situation you create
another amnesty down the road because people think, well I can
come in, I'll wait around, lay low, until then next amnesty comes."
