Yesterday, I posted most of a Wall Street Journal article announcing “new” Homeland Security rules for employers to verify whether their employees are legally eligible to work or are illegal aliens who must be fired. Today, the news is all over the media.
But as the article stated, the rules were actually formulated by the Bush Administration and Michael “Serpenthead” Chertoff’s Department of Homeland Security a year ago and never implemented, in favor of the phony “comprehensive immigration reform” baloney:
The department first proposed the regulations in June 2006 but then failed to implement them while an immigration-overhaul made its way to the Senate floor.
Even a year ago was too late. But now–with 16.5 months left of the George W. Bush Administration–is way too late. Where was President Bush for the first 6 and 2/3 years of his Administration on this issue? Where was he for the 6 years since 9/11?
Too little, too late. And as the WSJ article noted, the illegal aliens population is growing by more than half a million per year (and that figure doesn’t account for their anchor babies).
But, hey, at least they are finally admitting they lied about claiming they can’t enforce the law unless they grant illegal aliens instant amnesty.
