Cal Thomas speaks out...
...on the McCain/Kennedy Guest Voter Bill which appeared befor the US Senate.
If the Department of Homeland Security were doing its job, it would have joined the Immigration and Naturalization Service, checking identification and employment records for at least some of the millions demonstrating for citizenship in recent days. I thought illegals were afraid to show themselves and preferred the shadows for fear of getting caught. No more. They are in our country and in our faces, daring us to catch them. They have nothing to fear because timid politicians won't enforce immigration laws.
One of the excuses made for their illegal behavior is that they "work hard." So do a lot of other people. That does not give anyone an automatic pardon for breaking our laws. The other excuse is that they are doing jobs Americans won't do. The Washington Times put a severe dent in that argument when it reported on an Alabama employment agency that sent 70 laborers and construction workers to job sites following Hurricane Katrina. According to the newspaper, employers sent the men home after just two weeks on the job. The employers explained, "The Mexicans had arrived."
