North Amexican Forced Total Amnesty

Mexican President Vincente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin visited with President Bush in Waco, Texas. While President Fox is pushing to rename most of North America a more fitting "Amexica" with more mutually condoned border crossing, Prime Minister Martin continues to show no interest in defending against ballistic missiles.

While Canada continued the royal tradition of not having much more to say that "aye", Bush and Fox are united in their opposition to US citizens doing what the federal government should be:

WACO, Texas President Bush yesterday said he opposes a civilian project to monitor illegal aliens crossing the border, characterizing them as "vigilantes."

He said he would pressure Congress to further loosen immigration law.

More than 1,000 people including 30 pilots and their private planes have volunteered for the Minuteman Project, beginning next month along the Arizona-Mexico border. Civilians will monitor the movement of illegal aliens for the month of April and report them to the Border Patrol.

Mr. Bush said after yesterday's continental summit, with Mexican President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin at Baylor University, that he finds such actions unacceptable.

"I'm against vigilantes in the United States of America," Mr. Bush said at a joint press conference. "I'm for enforcing the law in a rational way."

The Minuteman Project was born out of a long-held perception among many residents that more Border Patrol agents are needed to handle the flow of illegal immigrants.

The president's 2006 budget allows enough money to add only 210 agents for the U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico.

Mr. Bush said he will "continue to push for reasonable, common-sense immigration policy." He has proposed legislation to grant guest-worker status to millions of illegal aliens already in the United States.

The legislation has attracted scant support in Congress, where it is widely regarded as another amnesty that will encourage even more illegal immigration.
The federal government really has two main jobs: 1.) Keep us safe. 2.)Stay out of our way.

Condemning the volunteer efforts of the citizenry to do what the federal government has failed to do for about 200 years is like fisking people for calling the cops when a burglar breaks into their home. Under this analogy, is President Bush telling us, "I know you don't have doors on your home, but unless one of the scant number of police that we have patrolling your area personally witnesses them entering your home, your civic duty is to let them come on in. Hey, while they're in your home, shove some food down their throat, give them a job and give them your car keys so they can run themselves to the ER if they get diarrhea, they can get a driver's license on the way. If one of them happens to go into labor, fix them a room, cause they'll be popping out an 'anchor' in a few hours."

Either Bush's push for yes, amnesty, is excessively irresponsible with evidence of naughty jihadi's crossing from Mexico, or my flu medication is making me irrational.

If Bush wants to "enforce the law in a rational way," I've got a solution. The warning label on my antibiotics said nothing about blogging under the influence, so excuse me for saying that if we give a thousand bucks an a bus ticket to the 10.3 million illegals tomorrow, drop them at the border and pay them to build the rest of the border fence from the Mexico side, we'd save billions by relieving our prison population by 1/3, free up a few million school books for kids who aren't learning a second language, we'll open some of the hospitals bankrupted by unpaid illegal care and the jobs that Americans can't take will miraculously get filled.

If the government can't be expected to enforce immigration, restrict entry and control who and how people enter the US, how can they expect us to take them any more seriously that a Shaq movie?
