I believe Laura Ingrahm made this point the other night on Hannity's show. Elites pretend to be concerned about "average" people but they routinely ignore them or in fact sneer at them. Immigration is a case in point. Every poll shows the public is very concerned about the level of immigration and wants it curtailed. They also want states and cities to stop frustrating federal immigration law, and they want the federal government to start protecting our borders. With this type of public concern, what do the elites give us? California passes a law to give drivers license to illegals, and I suppose that makes them eligible to vote (remember the ill-conceived Motor Voter law?). Other states are accepting mexican consular cards as valid ID, even though they are easy to get fraudulently and really establish nothing about the bearer, except that they are a lawbreaker. The federal governemtn could put a stop to this but instead does nothing, and through lax enforcement encourages illegal immigration. There is an unholy alliance of dirtbag politicians groveling for latino votes, businesses looking for cheap labor and ethnic race hustlers working against the voters and there doesn't appear to be a damn thing the voters can do about it. I'm not against immigration, but I think it is obvious it is out of control. Our policy is totally screwed up. We send courageous Cubans fleeing oppression back to Castro, but pretty much roll out a red carpet for others who cannot speak English, have no skills and even come here to have babies that are automatically american citizens. Meanwhile, those who follow the law face endless waiting lists and huge attorney fees. Changing the basic character of a country through immigration is also something that should not be done without a lot of thought and open debate. We are doing it through stealth and inaction, and one day we will pay the price.
