Illegal Immigration Quote of The Day

Fred Barnes:

On immigration, Rove has reinforced Bush's instincts, which are to seek the maximum--stiffer border enforcement, a temporary worker program, and earned citizenship for illegal immigrants living in the United States. This irritates conservatives who favor enforcement only, but matches the view of Reagan, the conservative standard-bearer.

Immigration affects the Hispanic vote, a long-term obsession of Rove and Bush. In 2004, Bush lifted the Republican share of that vote to 44 percent, a record for a Republican presidential candidate. Left to their own devices, conservatives and congressional Republicans would enact an enforcement-only bill that might drive away Hispanics and deny Republicans a lasting majority in America. Rove and Bush are eager to prevent that by saving conservatives from themselves.

Second time I've mentioned this but it needs to be seen by someone who can get the news out:
500 – Senator Dennis Hollingsworth (R-36th, Murietta (2002)), Budget Vice-Chair. Health care for all illegals making less than $60,000, based on a formula that considers eligibility at 300% of the Federal poverty level, at a cost of $500 million per year.

This is inserted deep in the budget where it will probably be passed without comment or debate. Better healthcare for illegals than most California and American citizens enjoy. You'd have to be stupid NOT to come here illegally.

I heard about this from Dennis Mountjoy and Frank Pastore ( and I just wish I had a way to make more people aware of it.

UPDATE: this passed committee this weekend and will be buried in the budget where it will probably be passed without notice. The most insidious pork EVER.
