Duncan has a great post up on Redstate
. Duncan writes "Yes It Is Amnesty. No I Will Not Support It." The McCain Kennedy Amnesty bill has died for now. Ward wonders
if it is really dead. Duncan concludes with this:
Now, the supporters of this bill will tell you that it will end illegal immigration, that it will secure our borders, and that it will be the last amnesty that we'll ever have to do. Back in 1986, some of the exact same people were saying the exact same things. I didn't believe them and that's why I opposed the Simpson-Mazzoli amnesty bill back then. Well today, I'm telling you that this bill won't secure our borders, it won't stop illegal immigration, and if we pass this bill, we'll be right back in the same place, doing another amnesty in ten to twenty more years. Now, whom do you believe? Me or the same people who said the Simpson-Mazzoli amnesty bill was the answer to all of our problems back in 1986? If you do believe me and think I'm right, I hope you'll do two things. Number one, I hope you'll call your senators and tell them to oppose this bill. Number two, I hope you'll support me for President because I will build the entire 854 miles of fencing, I will not support amnesty, and I will make sure that anyone who wants to enter this country has to come through the front door, because the back door on the border will be closed.
