Okay folks, I told ya so!

The first layer of "smoke and mirrors' comes via:

Plan to Deploy Guard at Border Worries Mexico

White House officials said Mr. Bush assured Mr. Fox that a permanent National Guard presence on the border was not being considered.

So what is the point of deploying the Guard at all?

Can we say "November"?


And then: Reform bill to double immigration

The immigration reform bill that the Senate takes up today would more than double the flow of legal immigration into the United States each year and dramatically lower the skill level of those immigrants.
The number of extended family members that U.S. citizens or legal residents can bring into this country would double. More dramatically, the number of workers and their immediate families could increase sevenfold if there are enough U.S. employers looking for cheap foreign labor. Another provision would grant humanitarian visas to any woman or orphaned child anywhere in the world "at risk of harm" because of age or sex.
The little-noticed provisions are part of legislation co-sponsored by Republican Sens. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska and Mel Martinez of Florida, which overcame some early stumbles and now has bipartisan support in the Senate. The bill also has been praised by President Bush, and he is expected to endorse it as a starting point for negotiations in his prime-time address to the nation tonight


These proposed increases are in addition to the estimated 10 million to 12 million illegal aliens already in the U.S. whom the bill would put on a path to citizenship. These figures also do not take into account the hundreds of thousands of additional immigrants who would be admitted to the U.S. each year under the guest-worker program that is part of the bill.

Can we say "capitulation"?


So our President will deploy Guard forces to the border to assist the Border Patrol to do nothing for a short time, say, until November in the hopes of shoring up his crumbling conservative base...

While our Congresscritters sell the future of America to be re-elected.

Politics as usual, one might say, but the clock is ticking.
