Senator Reid's Amnesty for Terrorists BillTopics: Immigration and Border Issues
Andy Selepak has a few questions for Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid on his support for the "amnesty for terrorists" provision in the immigration bill; you know which one we're talking about here - the one that President Bush says we're "unpatriotic" if we don't support and that Reid referred to when he told ABC that it would be a real tragedy if we tried to make this immigration debate about dealing with terrorism":
Reid thinks it would be a tragedy if the debate over immigration addressed how potential terrorists enter the United States? Isn't the purpose of an immigration bill to regulate and restrict who enters this country? Shouldn't it be a given that terrorists are to be kept out of the U.S.?
On one level, Reid's statement might be seen as a gaffe or misstatement. Politicians make them occasionally. But in light of the Fort Dix case, his statement must be seen as far worse. It should be viewed as designed to ignore a problem that continues to pose a mortal danger to every American. That's why the Senate's amnesty legislation has to be derailed before politicians make a bad situation even worse.
