From The Corner:
Ted Kennedy on Immigration [Mark Krikorian]
1965: "The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs."
1986: "This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."
2007: "Now it is time for action. 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system."
If the government is unable to secure the borders and punish criminals that enter our country illegally, why should we think they can be competent on education, social security and health care. Securing our nation is one of the few things that the constitution requires of the government.
How many employees are given more responsibilities when they cannot even meet the requirements of their job description?
