Border Security Added to Bill

Washington Times

What does it take to get through the thick skull of some of these mental midgets we call US Representatives!! Apparently, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee doesn't understand the difference between Legal Immigration and Illegal Immigration. Here - let me 'splain it to you Sheila of the mental midget variety. Legal Immigration is when a person has gone through all of the bureaucratic forms and approvals to enter this country with a valid Green Card. Illegal Immigration is when a person does none of the above and crosses the US Border illegally thus breaking our US laws. For someone who is a lawbreaker and not a legal immigrant, this bill isn't about anyone being anti-immigrant, it's about protecting our country from terrorists crossing our borders illegally!

The House yesterday added to the $81.3 billion supplemental defense spending bill a provision to tighten border security, a measure criticized by Mexico but praised by some lawmakers as a way to thwart terrorism. House Republicans said the measure, which was attached to the spending bill by voice vote, would enhance national security by making it harder for terrorists to enter the country and therefore belongs in the war spending package. "American citizens have a right to know who is in their country," said Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican. But Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Texas Democrat, said although she backs the package to support U.S. troops, the "anti immigrant" bill is "a poison pill" and should not have been attached.

I'm sick and tired of these so-called Representatives calling people who want to protect our borders anti-immigrant or racist.
