Leave it to a guy from Iowa to come up with a common sense solution to the problem. I, too, grew up in Iowa and I believe it is something in the water — except that wouldn’t explain Senator Harkin, would it?
Mr. Hogberg has the right idea except I think the border enforcement should go on for at least five years before we start a guest worker program. Our bureaucrats can fake it for two years. It would be much more difficult to fabricate numbers and fences for five years.
During that five years, we can start enforcing the employer sanctions on those who hire illegals. With employer sanctions in place fewer illegals would be able to get jobs and would start disappearing back into their own country. When that happens, then start a guest worker program.p>Just some thoughts from a former Iowan… br> — Judy Beumler br> Louisville, Kentucky /p>
The words that David Hogberg would put in President Bush’s mouth on the matter of illegal immigration are not the words that I would put in President Bush’s mouth. So here goes:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
