Take action now:

John McCain back to supporting "comprehensive immigration reform", "guest" workers, H-1B visas

Some people have tried to say that John McCain turned his back on "comprehensive immigration reform", i.e., a massive amnesty for illegal aliens. In a Silicon Valley speech today, McCain clarified the matter (link):
After several of the business leaders complained about the difficulty in obtaining temporary H1B visas for scientists and engineers, something the Senate immigration bill was supposed to address, Mr. McCain expressed regret the measure did not pass, calling it a personal "failure," as well as one by the federal government.

...Mr. McCain asked others on the panels for suggestions about how to "better mobilize American public opinion" behind the notion of comprehensive immigration reform.
It gets even worse, as - with Arnold Schwarzenegger by his side, cheering him on - McCain said:
"Senator Kennedy and I tried very hard to get immigration reform, a comprehensive plan, through the Congress of the United States... It is a federal responsibility and because of our failure as a federal obligation, we're seeing all these various conflicts and problems throughout our nation as different towns, cities, counties, whatever they are, implement different policies and different programs which makes things even worse and even more confusing... ...I believe we have to secure our borders, and I think most Americans agree with that, because it's a matter of national security. But we must enact comprehensive immigration reform. We must make it a top agenda item if we don't do it before, and we probably won't, a little straight talk, as of January 2009... ...[illegal aliens] are also God's children, and we have to do it in a human and compassionate fashion...
The last is simply false compassion, and what McCain supports will lead to even more people wanting to come here and will give even more political power to corrupt business groups and far-left groups that currently oppose immigration enforcement.

IT WAS ALL JUST A DREAM UPDATE: From this:
Team McCain tells me the senator's comments were poorly worded. There's been no discussion within the campaign of altering their stance on illegal immigration, and as far as everyone on the campaign is concerned, the policy is still, 'secure the border first.'

I said, "so, this change away from border-security-first wouldn't happen, unless John McCain and his top advisers had gotten together, studied it in great detail, weighed all the advantages and disadvantages, and came to the carefully-considered conclusion that they're really not interested in winning the election?" The strategist laughed and agreed.

Fred is right. All three major candidates have the same agenda, just slightly different plans for it's execution. They are happy to provide the distraction that they care about the economy, gas prices, taxes, gay marriage, health care, the republic, and about Americans, whether democrat or republican, rich or poor. Not. It's not even about the cheap labor, the votes, or some high-minded compassion for the poor illegals. Measure the three senators words and deeds against a bigger agenda. Then decide for yourself what their intentions are. Americans are a well armed society that would set aside political differences in a heartbeat. We are an independent lot, with a tradition of dealing with traitors and tyrants, making us a thorn in their side, their objective, uncertain. So, how to get around a predictably messy situation which carries the possibility of a losing outcome for the open borders internationalists? Smoke and mirrors, ahead of that nation-killing tidal wave of humanity these traitors are so desperate to import. They are...your replacements. Memorial day weekend. Remember them. One year left. Follow Fred's advice.

eh

Talk of "border security" is just campaign blather to numb the masses. At least those who aren't so busy watching American Idol that they're actually paying a little bit of attention.

Has ANYone ever even ASKed McCain just what he actually MEANS when he says he'll "make sure the borders are secure before..." (or..."first..."). What does he MEAN by "secure"? Is he going to go walk the length of the border and make a decision? Spend forty nights and forty days with the Border Patrol and count the illegal aliens? Exactly WHAT does he MEAN when he says he'll "ask the border state governors to declare the border is secure..." Are the GOVERNORS going to go down and walk their borders with Mexico? Drive around with the BP? ANYone going to do ANYthing like that? Are they going to consider as secure, say, a hundred less illegal aliens spotted crossing the border versus the current numbers? At what POINT is this declaration of "secure" going to be determined? And what is McCain going to do AFTER he's gotten this pronouncement from these governors? And how LONG or in what context of "security" (as in, permanent and ongoing) is this "secure" border going to exist? Is there a plan to stop whatever process McCain says he's going to advance "after" the border is "secure" IF the border's found to be, again, not secure at any time? These simple campaign statements are meaningless unless they are accompanied by prying questions and difficult answers. But, answered these questions have to be.
