This Is Killing Me

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted much in the past few days it’s because this whole illegal immigration thing is wearing me down. I’m so disgusted by what I see day after day that I am trying to take a break from it.

This article is a good example of what is driving me crazy.

Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano is afraid of what is going to happen to her in the 2006 election so she’s paying lip service to the illegal immigration problem just like New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson who is thinking of running for President. It’s a big joke because they’ve both pandered to illegal immigrants their whole careers.

Suddenly they both declare a state of emergency due to the ravages and terror of human smuggling, drug smuggling, kidnapping, murder, destruction of property and the death of livestock.

Then Napolitano runs around with a letter from Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff that “outlines a strategy to deal with this devastating problem.” She wants everyone to know that she’s getting things done.

“We are moving forward quickly and aggressively to fashion a comprehensive plan with real solutions,” Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff wrote. “We . . . intend to build a partnership with Arizona.”

Basically the letter says that ICE will help train four people (1,2,3,4) and they’ll start walking through the Phoenix bus station every now and then. They might even hire someone to push paper around in the ICE office. That’s it. That’s the comprehensive plan.

“I think this is very promising,” Napolitano said from Washington, D.C. “We’re finally seeing some movement. I look forward to speaking with Secretary Chertoff. It’s finally nice to get something in writing.”

This is what is killing me. Reading this stuff is sucking the marrow from my friggin bones.
