Democrats REALLY Want Immigration Reform

It’s coming soon. They are really going to push comprehensive reform. It is vastly important to them, a major priority.

(Washington Times) Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, an architect of the Democratic campaign that regained control of the House last year, says his party will not attempt comprehensive immigration reform until at least the second term of a prospective Democratic president.

The congressman’s statement was reported by a Hispanic activist and confirmed by Mr. Emanuel. "Congressman Rahm Emanuel said to me two weeks ago, there is no way this legislation is happening in the Democratic House, in the Democratic Senate, in the Democratic presidency, in the first term," Juan Salgado, board chairman of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, told the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) at its annual convention last weekend.

Whoa! Can’t you just feel the burning need? It’s not like illegal immigration is a big issue with the American people, or anything. Heck, you would think the Democrats would be hot to trot to get the border issues solved, considering how often they have called to bring the troops home from iraq and deploy them along the southern border (which would violate Posse Comitatus, BTW).

Through a spokesman, Mr. Emanuel, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, blamed Republicans for botching this year’s debate and said that makes it tougher for Democrats to return to the issue.

"Congressman Emanuel has worked hard to make comprehensive immigration reform a reality and that work continues," said Nick Papas, Mr. Emanuel’s spokesman. "However, President Bush and congressional Republicans’ failure on this critical matter has set back efforts to enact real reform."

It is very simple, Rob. Cut out the amnesty parts, and we will be happy to work to fixing a system that is completely and utterly, well, there is little other way to put it, f*cked.

    Apparently, the Democrats feel that having the consent of the governed on measures such as this is optional. Par for the course, I suppose; witness their decades-long battle for control of the courts, in order to ramrod a left-wing agenda down the country’s collective throat…
