No matter which way you slice it, dice it or re-work this immigration bill, it is still going to allow millions of criminals to become legal U.S. residents .. and many will become citizens with full voting rights. Right now I suppose all that we can hope for is the lesser of all the evils.

Yesterday the Senate tightened up some parts of the bill. It capped the number allowed through the guest worker program at 200,000. The Bush administration originally planned for 400,000, with the option to increase that number to 600,000 if necessary. It also cut down on the number of temporary work visas, and said that security at the borders must be tightened before any of these new laws go into place.

This one is my favorite: cracking down with mandatory prison sentences on illegal immigrants who are deported and then re-enter the U.S. Well, isn't that special. How about prison for the ones who enter illegally to begin with? All we have to do is make sure that the living accommodations we provide in our prison camps for illegal aliens are at least as good as the conditions from whence they came. Start rounding them up and throwing them in prison for a year before they're sent back and you'll see a screaming halt to the Mexican invasion.

As for the 12 to 20 million already here? Read what Dick Morris has to say about the amnesty bill and the Republicans. Sadly, he makes a lot of sense. The disgusting political reality is that this whole immigration debate is now about our law. It is about political power. Its about votes.

The media is up in arms because House GOP leader John Boehner used a profane four-letter word to describe the bill. What's the big deal? I think there are a few more choice words I could add to his list.
