PRESIDENT SPEAKS - BORDER SECURITY YET STILL SOMEWHAT WEAK ON ILLEGALS

President Bush spoke from the Oval Office tonight on the hot bed issue of illegal immigration. The beginning of the speech finally dealt with border security. 6,000 National Guard will be deployed, in my opinion not enough but at least a start. The President also outlined a comprehensive program from high tech security to building fences in rural areas. Again not strong enough but a good start. From this point, though stronger than in the past, the speech did not take the tough stand that the nation is demanding. The President made it clear that he did not favor any amnesty programs and though I agree that deporting illegal aliens in large numbers is really not feasible the program that the President outlined though not in essence amnesty and placing any path to citizenship behind those who have obeyed our laws, the plan outlined penalties but again absolutely no incentive for illegals to step out of the shadows and participate in the program. It was good to hear that the plan actually will have penalties for employers who hire illegals including ID cards that are tamper proof. Whether it is enforced now remains to be seen. Enforcing the law when it comes to employing illegals will deter the massive flow coming over the border as illegals will find acquiring employment harder because of employment enforcement. Again the question is will it be fully enforced. If so great, but enforcement means NO exceptions. The President stated that in order to secure the border there must be a temporary worker program. I disagree ! Border security is possible without temporary worker programs. First completely secure the border. The flow must stop in order for the problem of illegal aliens to even begin to find a solution! I would like to believe that 6,000 National Guard is just the beginning and as the states on the borders request then additional Guardsman will be deployed. For those who disagree with National Guard on the border remember they are THE NATIONAL GUARD. Deployment in times of war is at the discretion of the President but their primary duty is national security whether a natural disaster, or deployment to protect our citizenry. Border security is vital to our national security and placing the Guard on the border is keeping with the responsibility of the Guard. All in all not the speech of strength that I would have liked but a start which will begin the process of dealing with the illegal alien issue. Now Congress must take this initiative by the President strengthen it and deal with the problem from a position of law enforcement and tight border security.

A lot of talk - we will see what actually happens.

Putting National Guard on the border and not allowing them to actually do any policing seems foolish to me. Basically, they have to point to illegals and call Border Security. We'll have to see what the rules of engagement are.

The temporary worker program is a joke. So people can enter the country and sign up, then when their temporary worker status is done they are going to just go back? Right.

All the folks who are here illegally would be given a chance to become legal by paying a fine and learning English. That is an amnesty program. It is in contravention of current U.S. law and it rewards them for breaking the law.

Rob,
On that I agree with you 100%. Now excuse me, I need to rinse my mouth out with soap.

A horrible night for Bush.......His base will crush him, and the Democrats will spite him just because it's what they do.

NO WALL = NO PLAN!

And if the Guard is going down there to hand out water and tacos they should be sent home.

Mark it down: May 15, 2006 - The day Bush officially became a lame duck.

I'm not happy about it, but he did it to himself.........Unfortunately the results will allow the Democrats to do it to all of us.

I hate to say it, being a die-hard liberal, but Bush is basically right on this one. However, rather than sending the guard, we should be beefing up the border patrols, who can take more direct action when necessary. Diverting the Guard to the border might become very costly should they be needed to respond somewhere else. But a fence makes sense, and the longer the better. It would make the patrols' jobs a heck of a lot easier, and so what if it's costly, or that it won't completely stop the flow. It'll sure slow it down. And yes, a guest worker program makes sense. Will it create a second-class work force? Yup! What else should anyone going into another country illegally expect? If the ultimate goal is inclusion into a free and prosperous society, then hell yes, I'd take being exploited for a while. My grandparents did.

As much as I hate to say it, and as much as I might agree with the humanitarian aspect of their argument, the left really has it wrong here. If they are going to hold the President and Congress to the letter of the law, why the double standard with illegals?

Now, if he only keeps his word and actually funds the things he said he would. How likely do you think that is?

Rob, absolutly right alot of talk. Maybe since it was from Bush it may spark action.

Poison, Your right no wall, no plan, but this does not leave the Dems in control because neither party has a clue!

CIR, This is one issue that is actually bi-partisan it ticks of both Dems and GOP, libs and conservative!

Vern, Once again like I mentioned to Rob, we will see if this begins true action to confront this out of control problem.

Vern,
"However, rather than sending the guard, we should be beefing up the border patrols, who can take more direct action when necessary."

The point of the NG is just to be there as the border patrol "beefs up." Fill in the gaps until the BP can take over. However, I would say put them there 365...but that is just me.
