    Do you support his decision on this, BiR?

    Even someone we do not particularly like or agree with on most issues can do some good things once in a while.

    Good idea and fine words but how does this fit in with the agenda? That being a North American Community with America, Canada, and Mexico sharing a common border.

    I support this decision but I don't see it happening, globalization out ranks a mere House Majority Leader and congress of the United States and the POTUS as well for that matter.

    http://www.newsmax.com/archives/ic/2005/8/5/205249.shtml </font>[/QUOTE]Excellent! Let's get all law enforcement working together to help the Border Patrol with this problem. Let's also get people to stop using illegal alien workers in order to help dry up the market that brings them here. Let's all be prepared to stand firm against the political and economic cries that are sure to be heard over any corrective action we take. Regardless we need to close our borders to illegal immigration. Citizens and legal immigrants all expect that and our government had best start giving us what we want.

    Sure I do.

    Would you say that about Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Dick Durbin, John McCain or Olympia Snowe?

    Regards to you, Brother Reed,

    If they were to do something good, I would acknowledge it. How about you, BiR? Don't you think this is a good thing Delay is doing?

    Tom DeLay is right except for one thing. The biggest governmental body to not enforce US immigration laws is not local cities and municipalities. It's the federal government that fails in this arena. California's own Governator has complained profusely that Washington DC's failure to enforce the laws is costing California billions of State dollars.

    So while I appreaciate DeLay's comments, I'd appreciate it more if he didn't blame local government for the problem the federal government is responsible for.

    He is making a good effort. He talks the talk, let's see if he walks the walk. Perhaps this is another diversion.......

    Can you not say anything nice about the man...or can you only condemn and judge him? I don't think I have ever seen you say anything nice about the man. What a shame?

    Regards to you, Brother Reed,

    BiR </font>[/QUOTE]Certainly. I would love for those you mentioned to do something with which I agree. I, unlike many others, actually like John McCain. Although there are many issues with which he and I do not agree, I can see that he is sincere in what he believes. The others you mentioned, seem to me to be pandering to interest groups, rather than standing by their true convictions. Of course, I could be wrong, but that is how it appears to me.

    If Kennedy, Feinstein, Boxer, Durbin, and Snowe come out in favor of legislation to curb illegal immigration and help secure the borders, and stop calling the Minutemen vigilantes, I would be overjoyed and I would praise them vigorously.

    I will also not fail to chastise Bush, DeLay, or amy others who are not in favor of such legislation and who belittle the contribution of the Minutemen. In fact, it is my opinion that the border problem is one of the major failures of President Bush's administration and that inaction could quite possibly lead to another 9/11-style attack.

    Johnv, if you can not get cooperation from local and state governments, then what is the use of passing federal legislation? The sanctuary cities already disregard federal law, so passing more will not matter to them. I know this because I live in a santuary city, and believe me, illegals are a major problem here. I can promise you that there are at least a half million illegals in and around Houston. It is pitiful, and rather than assisting federal agents with the problem, the city has used our tax dollars to build "day labor stations" where illegals can sit by the side of the road, now in comfort, waiting for a pick-up to pull up and offer them a tax-free, cash job for the day.

    It outages me that the city allows and even encourages this to continue unabated.

    Stop the cities from harboring illegals, and then stop the flow of illegals over the border.

    Border control will never work until all levels of government are working in cooperation with one another.
