Mayday Mayday – Fred Thompson just lost some points with me.
The Conservative Cajun reminds us that Mayday is National Mobilization to Support Immigrant Workers! He writes:
Tomorrow is May Day 2007 for the National Immigrant Solidarity Network. That means tomorrow, hundreds of thousands of “immigrants rights” groups are going to be protesting in the streets of major U.S. cities, including Dallas and Los Angeles.
Therefore, tomorrow should be a perfect day for rounding up and deporting illegal aliens. But that won’t happen, because our politicians lack the intestinal fortitude to do so (LINK)
In the comments led me to this Fox News interview with Fred Thompson. Thompson is for amnesty!
WALLACE: You also favor comprehensive immigration reform. I want to...
THOMPSON: No, no, no, no.
WALLACE: Well, let me put up on the screen something that you said last year about illegals, and let's take a look at it. "You're going to have to, in some way, work out a deal where they can have some aspirations of citizenship but not make it so easy that it's unfair to the people waiting in line and abiding by the law."
Now, you said, "Look, it's just not realistic that we're going to round up 12 million people and ship them all out of the country."
THOMPSON: Well, that's true, as a general statement. We woke up one day after years of neglect and apparently discovered that we have somewhere between 12 million and 20 million illegal aliens in this country. So it became an impossible situation to deal with.
I mean, there's really no good solution. So what do you do? You have to start over. Well, I'm concerned about the next 12 million or 20 million. So that's why enforcement, and enforcement at the border, has to be primary.(LINK)
Sure Fred...Securing the boarder is first, then make it impossible for them to get a job. Round up the ones that are left. If Fred is wanting to reward illegals with amnesty he has lost points with me.
