Perspective on Immigration - II

After my previous post (and the lively response), I thought a bit of a clarification is in order.

1. America is the land of the free and home of the brave. I welcome all legal immigrants who enter the US legally. I am NOT for this kind of activity whatsoever. Away with them. We have ONE flag, The Stars and Stripes. We are a MELTING POT which means that people from different cultures come from all over the world to make ONE people. Within our differing groups we have and enjoy our particular culture with the freedom to do so. But we are NOT a multi-cultural Nation.

This is the United States of America - a sovereign nation. Clear enough?

Now, saying that, understand that we are not going to find an easy solution to this problem of illegal immigration. We're about 100 years too late. So we are not going to "round 'em up and lock 'em up", at least not in LA (Arizona may be a possibility though), but the fact is that the lax enforcement of our immigration laws or more specifically our border protection is long standing. I remember back in '81 watching illegals literally spilling over the Rio Grande into El Paso by the droves and the border patrol doing next to nothing to stop them. While some would like to see the troops and tanks brought in, there isn't a politician worth his 2006/2008 who is going to risk inflaming the sizable hispanic voting blocks in this country. Lame? I know. But it's just the facts as they are.

AJ Strata has I think a good take on what part of the solution may be. But even so, the solutions are not going to be found easily - that's the point.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
