The Republicans have tipped their hands on the immigration bill. It’s all about business.
As my grandmother (an Irish immigrant who came in legally) used to say:
“He’ll sell his soul for a bowl of soup.” That about sums it up.
Update: And for you who love themes for important legislation, the democrats have come up with a good one: This bill “brings millions out of the darkness and into the light”. I heard both Sen. Kennedy and Sen. Menendez invoke this cheerful thought (and Kennedy added out of the light, into eventual citizenship – there’s the truth of the matter). Important legislation reduced to silly catch phrases. What nonsense.
