Bush’s ‘War on Immigrants’

After mixed results with the “War on Iraq” and the “War on Oil,” the president is embarking on his most ambitious war to date - the “War on Immigrants.”

To get the country past this sudden and unexpected crisis - the mid term elections - President Bush is once again calling up the troops.

This time, the National Guard will be fighting evil-doers at the U.S.-Mexico border. OK. They won’t exactly be fighting evil-doers. They’ll be busy mending fences, building roads and watching surveillance video.

While the National Guard is busy keeping illegal immigrants out, the president has asked congress to open the U.S. borders to “guest” workers.

Here’s how it will work:

Instead of having undocumented immigrants sneaking across our borders at night, the new plan is to issue special ID cards to allow them to walk across the border during the day.

These state-of-the-art ID cards will have biometric codes, and may even contain the latest in color imaging technology (a mug shot).

When the “guest” worker’s permit expires, the “guest” will quit his job, pack up his belongings, say goodbye to his friends and move back to the impoverished village he ran away from in the first place.

If an undocumented worker is caught, the penalty will be severe. They will be sent back to their home country and a note will be put in their permanent record.

Here’s a recap of the president’s 5-part plan:

1) Spend lots of money.
2) Put 6,000 troops within commuting distance of our U.S.-Mexican border.
3) Invite lots of “guest” workers into our country.
4) Send back a few undocumented immigrants to their home country.
5) Give millions of illegal immigrants currently in this country a chance to become citizens (a.k.a. amnesty).

With a plan like this, our country will once again be safe and secure.

"With a plan like this, our country will once again be safe and secure." Do I detect tongue in cheek here? You got it right on point #1: The President's plans involves spending lots of money. BTW, this isn't a Great Wall of China so much as it is a high tech boondoogle IMHO. Below is an excerpt from a story in today's NY Times. It's corporate crony feeding time again at the government trough!

Seeking to Control Borders, Bush Turns to Big Military Contractors

Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman, three of the largest military contractors, are among the companies that said they would submit bids within two weeks for a multibillion-dollar federal contract to build a "virtual fence" along the nation's borders.

Using some of the same high-priced, high-tech tools these companies have already put to work in Iraq and Afghanistan -- like unmanned aerial vehicles, ground surveillance satellites and motion-detection video equipment -- the military contractors are zeroing in on the rivers, deserts, mountains and settled areas that separate Mexico and Canada from the United States.


Through its Secure Border Initiative, the Bush administration intends to not simply buy high-tech equipment to help it patrol the borders -- a tactic it has also already tried, at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars, with limited success. It is also asking the contractors to devise and build a whole new border strategy.

Sounds to me like more cover-up for incompetence.
