Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

CONDOLEEZA RICE URGES GOP TO EMBRACE IMMIGRATION REFORM

Rate this Entry

Another prominent figure in the Republican Party urges her party to change its ways on immigration. Rice tells the New York Times:


IMMIGRATION POLICY IS FOREIGN POLICY.

We didn't get comprehensive immigration reform. . . . I think
everybody knows that this president tried. I remember the first
foreign-policy meeting that I went to with the then-governor, before he
was inaugurated, was with the then-governor, soon to be president of
Mexico, Vicente Fox,
and they talked about the need to fix this problem. I am a firm
believer in defending our laws and defending our borders. . . . But
it's also true that there are a lot of hardworking people in this
country who live in the shadows.


IMMIGRANTS ARE CENTRAL TO AMERICAN IDENTITY.

I was a major proponent of the temporary-worker program and
finding some way to normalize the status for these people. I think that
it goes to the core of who we are. I hear some people talking about,
well, maybe there should be a timeout on legal immigration, check your
last name and see whether or not it came over on the Mayflower.


WHY SOME IMMIGRANTS SHOULD STAY -- AND SOME SHOULD STAY HOME.

Improving the economic conditions that would allow people who
are clearly ambitious -- if they're going to walk across the desert to
get here, they're ambitious people -- improving the capability of those
people to stay home and contribute is the last piece of that puzzle.
Comprehensive immigration reform is the one thing I wish we'd been able
to do, and it's going to have to be done, and I hope it's done soon.

    Did George Bush really try to get CIR through? Or was he like Pontius Pilate backing down in front of the white skin worshipping pagan mob led by Sessions, DeMint and Vitter? Pray tell the truth.

    It is too late for this over achiever, self centered, confused (Miss. Rice) to even pretend to care for immigrants, please tell her to leave quietly thus nobody will harbor any hard feelings against her.
    I am glad that she achieved her goal of being filthy rich, every immigrant's dream/goal/desire/ you get the point, but it is cowardly of Miss. Rice atempt to now trying to become the voice of common sense/advocate.

    Please Condoleza just leave, you have done enough, cuidese y que Dios la recompense 20 veces por las buenas cosas que hizo.
