Two Cheers for Amnesty


Over at The American Spectator, Lawrence Henry has a thoughtful piece on Bush's recent plan to legalize illegal immigrants. A snippet:

Initial reaction, however, shows that as many legal Spanish-speaking immigrants will hate this proposal as love it. As a vote-getter, it's a wash—probably worse, when you consider the outrage on the President's right.

No, I think this is a pressing administrative issue that President Bush simply will not ignore. Further, it will set the stage for handling another even more exigent administrative issue that is one of George W. Bush's most cherished dreams: reforming Social Security.

He did it on purpose.

He did it now, when he didn't have to.


Whole thing here.
