Quote of the day on illegal immigration

From Thomas Sowell's Washington Times Commentary piece 'The GOP and immigration':
...The real question is whether sweeping the illegal aliens problem under the rug by calling them legal will bring in still more millions of illegals, as a previous amnesty has already done. Nor will calling amnesty by some other name do anything more than undermine the confidence of the American people in general and the Republican base in particular.

Sometimes caution is the most dangerous policy. Gen Douglas MacArthur once defined defensive warfare in one word: "Defeat."

Frankly, the Republicans deserve to lose this fall's election, after their wild spending and pandering to economic ignorance on gas prices. But a Republican defeat would only bring in the Democrats -- and the country does not deserve anything that disastrous.

The Democrats' petty obstruction and irresponsible demagoguery in wartime disqualifies them for national leadership when a nuclear Iran and nuclear terrorists loom on the horizon.
