Read My Lips: No New Amnesty by Ann Coulter

Sobering sarcasm Coulter style.

HUMAN EVENTS ONLINE – Read My Lips: No New Amnesty by Ann Coulter:

Bush has also apparently learned that the word “amnesty” does not poll well. On Monday night, he angrily denounced the idea of amnesty just before proposing his own amnesty program. The difference between Bush’s amnesty program and “amnesty” is: He’d give amnesty only to people who have been breaking our laws for many years — not just a few months. (It’s the same program that allows Teddy Kennedy to stay in the Senate.)

Bush calls this the “rational middle ground” because it recognizes the difference between “an illegal immigrant who crossed the border recently and someone who has worked here for many years.” Yes, the difference is: One of them has been breaking the law longer. If our criminal justice system used that logic, a single murder would get you the death penalty, while serial killers would get probation…

Instead of choosing immigrants based on the longevity of their lawbreaking, another idea is to choose the immigrants we want, for example, those who speak English or have special skills. (And by “special skills” I don’t mean giving birth to an anchor baby in a border-town emergency room.)

Why not use immigration the way sports teams use the draft — to upgrade our roster? We could take our pick of the world’s engineers, doctors, scientists, uh … smoking-hot Latin guys who stand around not wearing shirts between workouts. Or, you know, whatever …
