And then?

Consul-At-Arms has a post up here that is of some note.

It addresses with clarity the nuts and bolts a genuine effort at immigration reform requires to work, and most certainly deals with details I hadn't thought of.

To paraphrase the old saying... From his mouth to the U.S. Senate and President Bush.

...

Wandering back from the brink of my manic obsession with the whole 'New World Order' scenario I find myself still puzzled and frustrated.

Illegal immigrants to this country are being exploited by capitalists and communists alike. Business seems to want (or need) cheap labor and the communists want (or need) downtrodden workers.

BTW, if the communist reference needs explaining just take a look at the many of the signs at the recent pro-immigration protests.

These two broad groups are diametrically opposed in pretty much every aspect save this one. I have to ask why they appear to be working for the same apparent goal?

...

If that isn't confusing enough... We have our military deployed in foreign lands to preserve our security and known criminals can cross our borders with impunity. Again I have to ask why?

...

We're being asked to accept a lessening of our civil liberties in the name of security while outright criminals are about to be told that if enough people break a given law we'll simply change the law to suit them. Yet again why?

...

I'm reminded of Charles Fort and his Book of the Damned, or maybe the less esoteric view of Douglas Adams ("Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy") is applicable "If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands."

Maybe there's no vast conspiracy hell bent on making the United States merely a part of some larger entity, but SOMETHING is going on... Perhaps it just a big duck?
