Et Tu, George?

In some parting advice to the GOP on Fox News today [h/t the Washington Post], President George Bush falls into the error of many others who have commented or reported on the subject. He leaves out that one critical word.

And we should be open-minded about big issues like immigration reform, because if we’re viewed as anti-somebody — in other words, if the party is viewed as anti-immigrant — then another fellow may say, well, if they’re against the immigrant, they may be against me.

Respectfully, sir, no one, Democrat or Republican, who supports the enforcement of our immigration laws is opposed to immigrants. We are opposed to politicians who either fail to discourage illegal immigration by insufficiently encouraging or funding ICE or who openly invite illegal immigration by championing amnesty legislation in the guise of “reform”.

Monique is correct. “Comprehensive immigration reform” is code language for mass amnesty for illegal aliens. Opposing this in no way makes one “anti-immigrant.” There is a huge different between immigrants and illegal aliens, which Bush still apparently doesn’t understand. And Bush is the one who is uncompassionate for advocating amnesty for millions of illegal foreign workers when there are over 10 million Americans out of work.
