HOW TO TURN OUR NATIVISTS INTO COYOTES:

Slammed by an Open-Door Policy: Germany's popular foreign minister is under fire for a program that let thousands of illegal immigrants into the nation. (Jeffrey Fleishman, March 3, 2005, LA Times)

An astute politician and international charmer, German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer would seem a hard man to bring down. He and his Green Party positioned themselves as the conscience of a nation, embracing environmental protection and popular liberal causes.

But the snowy-haired Fischer, who a few months ago was the toast of the tabloid press as he rushed about town with his 28-year-old girlfriend, faces a scandal that jeopardizes his career. He's accepted responsibility for a poorly regulated visa program that allowed thousands of illegal immigrants, many of them Eastern European prostitutes, to enter Germany.


If that was who was coming over our border you'd not hear a peep from Pat Buchanan and company.

Prostitutes are ill prepared to pick our vegetables, mow our lawns and roof our houses. However, if you need your ashes hauled, then that's another story.

Did he approve them personally? That would be an achievement.

Immigration of high earning professionals is exactly what I have recommended for the US. It would stiffen up a drooping economy. Glad to see you're on board.
