  1. As someone who was somewhat in favor of the Bush/Senate versions of immigration reform, I have to say that I’m not really upset at what appears to be the failure of that proposal.

    As politics, this seems to mean that the issue will be debated at a later date. When, by all indications, there will be more Democrats in Congress than there are now. I’m ok with that.

    As policy, I expect that if a compromise solution had been found (or if one eventually is found) it would have been such a mess that it would have done more harm than good.

    If I were in Congress I would propose a simple two-step solution:

    1. Provide a path to legalization. Include fines for having broken the law. English literacy required. Welfare denied. Felons need not apply.

    That takes care of current illegals.

    2. Increase the quotas for legal immigration from Central America and Mexico.

    That takes care of future illegals.

    Then I would probably be voted out of office in a landslide. ;)

  4. I’m just glad folks weren’t stampeded into the horrible “DO SOMETHING” mode that often takes in cases like this. Often action is seen as a cure no matter what direction the action takes. On an issue like this thought and concensus is what are needed, not action.

  5. Just in time for the 4th of July, Jones American Comedy Network has created a hilarious sequel to our popular web animation “Mexican Tourism Ad” — it’s the “Immigrant National Anthem,” aka the Star Spangled Banner refried!

    We invite you to spread the joy by posting a link to the animation at your site. Here’s the URL:
