Clueless America, Clueless Prez/Congress: Interesting Amnesty Bill Poll

This is from Tuesday’s USA Today, but it’s very important. It shows how out of touch the President and the Congress are with the pulse of the nation, when it comes to illegal immigration. While most Americans are sadly clueless on this very important issue, those that have a clue have the right view, overwhelmingly:

As the Senate prepares to vote on a landmark immigration bill, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds that Americans who have an opinion about it are overwhelmingly opposed to the deal.
By nearly 3-1, those who have a view say they’re against the compromise supported by Senate Democratic leaders and President Bush. However, 58% of those surveyed say they don’t know enough about the legislation to favor or oppose it.

Expect More of This in America if Amnesty Bill Passes

The telephone poll of 1,007 adults was taken Friday through Sunday.

For the 58% clueless, I recommend they read Kris Kobach’s column in today’s Washington Times: “A Wake Up Call for the Senate,” on immigration and terrorism and how they are inextricably linked.

Dear Debbie;
That picture you have of that guy taking a picture of five women, is the silliest, stupidest, dumb-assed photo I have ever seen.
How can you tell who is in the photo if you can’t see anyone’s face?
Muslims are the craziest people.

Exactly what I was thinking!!!! I’m laughing my butt off!!!
What’s the point of the picture?

If Bush and Congress are so relentless about pushing the amnesty bill then perhaps he should legislate it for a good cause by using the bill to pardon the 8 marines being held at Camp Penalton convicted under false charges instead of granting amnesty to the real law breaching criminals such as those who are tresspassing through our borders into our country unauthorized.

EJO and TheAwakenedOne, that picture always cracks me up, also. How, in this age of communication could one-fifth of the world not know that the other four-fifths is laughing at them?

You folks can have your laugh about the photo, but this technique guarantees no bad photos or complaints about not catching a happy pose.

Since the American People have spoken (polls, cards and letters and Bush/Congress have gone 10/7 on the amnesty bill, then perhaps they enforce the current LAW OF THE (HOME)LAND.
Follow the plan that has been alluded to by Andrew C. McCarthy of National Review: Do nothing with the 12-20 million illegals here now. That’s right, no Z-Visa, no mass deportation, no path to citizenship, no rounding up, nothing.
The truth is, we have lived with the illegal population for quite some time now. Whence comes the exigency to do something now?
What we can and should do is encourage their attrition, piecemeal.
Few are against securing the border (or so they say). So secure it. Build the full fence and show some seriousness about protecting our country. In the meantime, we need to stop the silly sound-bite that if you build a ten-foot fence the illegal immigrants will find an eleven-foot ladder. With enough border patrol, the ladders become irrelevant.
But, we can and should deport illegal persons piecemeal and over time as they, themselves, come out of the shadows,as of course they will whenever they have cause to show an i.d. to a government agency or employer; or if they show a fake ID; or if they are arrested for other crimes; or if they are merely pulled over for traffic violations.
At those points, let us show our ability to handle the law as it is now, which allows for the deportation of illegal aliens.
Earlier this year, Michelle Malkin pointed out that we have doubt enough with our task as it is, never mind absorbing 12 million (minimum) more illegal citizens and requiring their legal mainstreaming and processing. Among other things, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has lost track of 111,000 files in 14 of the agency’s busiest district offices and processed as many as 30,000 citizenship applications last year without the required files.
We are being asked in the pending Senate legislation to adopt a whole series and set of laws, regulations, and procedures that depend on our or the government’s ability to actually effectuate those requirements that few have confidence we can effectuate rightly. How can we think of reforming something called Section 101(a)(15)(H)(ii) of the Immigration and Nationality Act to solve our problems with absorbing a minimum of 12 million illegal aliens when we have yet to solidify the southern border? That’s what irks about the long, Rube Goldbergian machinations of the proposed law. We cannot even make the current law work.
Let’s try the law as it is now, first, and prove our ability.
Let’s put illegal immigration on the course of ultimate extinction by tolerating no more furtherance, or rewarding, of it, but without taking any drastic measures either.

Doesn’t anyone realize we already have laws on the books to settle this illegal immigration problem once and for all? All we need to do is start enforcing it by sweeping the jails, doing massive factory sweeps, visiting the day loabor congregating areas every other week and denying every single overstay their Immigration application benefit request and we’ll have almost all illegals out within 10 years.
