Flyers, not to be critical, but I don't think he is concerned about that. He is more concerned, at least it seems to me, about how the rest of the
world will view America if it decides to develop a stringent policy in regards to illegals in this country. I personally couldn't care less. Most of
the rest of the world already has a negative opinion of Americans anyway.
We are being accused of being "selfish" by people who really shouldn't be concerned about what we do about our national borders. Yet, Americans
haven't shown themselves to be selfish at all. There is no society that is anymore charitable than Americans, not one.
Also, how long have we allowed people free access into this country? I know for at least the last 60 years people from other nations have been allowed
to come and go in our country without question, really.
For me, this whole issue is about the world we live in today and what needs to be done. We are no longer living in a world where our borders can
remain porous. It's just not acceptable, and it certainly, despite what Mr. White may think, isn't smart.
I don't have to present any facts and figures to support my case because the numbers are out there in excess for anyone who cares to examine it.
Also, my point of view makes its own case. I am sorry, Mr. White, but if you're arguing that we should just eat the 12-20 million illegals that are
here, and continue to have an open borders policy, you are wrong, sir.
The first thing that needs to be done is to decide what we are going to do to secure our national borders. After that is done, then what is to be done
about those that are here should be decided.
Mr. Bush has quite conclusively shown himself not to be a conservative by any stretch of the imagination. A conservative would have started working on
a border policy within months of 9/11, not wait until five years, count them, five years to try and develop a policy. He is only doing it now for
