Grandfathering Amnesty

I've been surprised by the depth of antipathy to the idea of granting amnesty to illegal aliens. Maybe we should discuss it in terms of 'grandfathering' instead. After all, we winked at the law as much as the illegals did. Given our decades-long record of lax border enforcement and practically nil workplace policing it's unfair to suddenly uproot people who've invested years in building lives here. Let's not give amnesty, let's grandfather them in. On a related note, there are actually people who huff and puff that these people break the law every day by being in this country. Let's see, can anyone remember a drug war victim (the drug war itself being a vile outrage against our freedom and dignity) being charged not only with possession but with possession on a day-to-day basis? Have trials focused on how many days the poor soul was in possession, with a new charge for every day? Jeez, these people need to get a grip.

Yup. We've had laws for years. The enforcement of those laws have taken a dive especially in the last five years. In 1999 403 companies were busted for hiring illegals. Today, only three companies a year get busted (and it is usually because they didn't contribute to the RIGHT party). The issue is a joke. It is only being presented as a distraction from the other things the RIGHT has done to mess up America.
