WHEN ROVEBOTS WRITE:

Bad Fences Make Bad Neighbors (Joseph Richey, 4/27/06, AlterNet)

President Bush has publicly promoted a guest worker program and called massive deportation "unrealistic," but when he's not on the podium, he's already expanding an immigration plan that's not so immigrant-friendly.

With Bush's approval, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff has ordered new and expanded programs on the frontier in Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and internally at Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and its Office of Detention and Removal (DRO). Their 2007 budget request seeks ten times more funding for detention and removal than it does for employer violations and apprehension.


Precisely the message the Administration is trying to sell.

The message isn't getting through to the conservative base. They want their wall and no amnesty

They seldom understand the messages, but the President keeps winning.

Like gun control, illegal immigrant control: no new laws, prosecute with existing laws.

Like slavery, no unjust laws.
