I’m hoping that Americans get as excited and angry about the watered-down Senate immigration bill as they did about the Dubai ports sale. We have got to toughen our borders first, and worry about law-breaking refugees second. If you are in this country illegally, you should not have any rights under this nation’s Constitution. It is a pretty obvious conclusion.
I am a product of an immigrant family who came through Ellis Island in the early 1900s and did it legally. If the immigration process is cumbersome, good. We cannot absorb every refugee from every nation on earth into our country. It is impossible!
To give you an idea at what that might look like — just take a gander at the burning riots in France this year. Someday soon Los Angeles and New York will be under the same strain if we allow unfettered access to our country.
Please call your Senators today and urge them to toughen the weak and pathetic immigration bill that was passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday. It doesn’t go far enough to protect America and to ensure that those who are here illegally are made to follow our laws and our Constitution. I have no more right to go to Switzerland and expect instant citizenship than those from Mexico or Canada do to come here and demand the same. Tell your Senator to support amendments making the Senate bill in line with the House-passed bill.
Finally, is there any doubt as the result of this story that illegal immigration is a security threat? This sounds like an hour episode out of “24” for crying out loud! (Hat tip: Polipundit)

Congress — wake up! We need a real fence, real enforcement of our exisiting immigration laws, and the balance on this issue needs to tip to national security, not political correctness sensibilities.
