...courtesy of Michael Chertoff, the director of the hideously misnamed "Department of Homeland Security."
In speaking of the crackdowns yesterday at various meat-packing plants that rounded up scores of illegal aliens, Chertoff said "The [immigration] problem is everyone's problem, and we can fix it with comprehensive immigration reform."
Wrong, you pathetic fool.
Out-of-control illegal immigration is the problem of George Bush and the congress, working hand-in-hand with city officials around the country that have caved in to the wack-job left and are agitating to just throw the damn borders wide open.
It is not "everyone's" problem.
The government is "everyone's" problem.
Oh, and the illegals who were rounded up? They are under suspicion of "identity theft," because they used fraudulent Social Security numbers to get jobs. Since the government has agreed with Mexico that its citizens will get their S.S. benefits from Uncle Sugar regardless of the legality of their status and no matter whether their I.D. numbers were legal, it's a pretty minor rap.
They'll be all right, anyway. Inevitably, they will be freed pending a court appearance they'll never show up to, and will simply come back to the packing plants with new names.
It's time for comprehensive politician reform.
