According to Ken Mehlman, that is!

My latest email from the GOP
(I joined GOP.com just to keep my enemies close)

Here is the latest spin:

Dear Jennifer,
Our immigration system is broken. And we need your help to fix it.

In his address to the nation last night, President Bush showed the way to getting real results on this difficult issue. We need your help today to stand up in support of the President's bold plan. Sign the petition and call your Senators and Representatives to demand immediate action on comprehensive immigration reform.

Our nation faces a long-term problem that requires a long-term solution. As the President outlined, America needs real reform that includes:

Dramatic increases in manpower and technology at the border

A system of controlled, temporary, and legal entry into the United States that meets our economic needs and relieves the pressure of illegal immigration at the border. No amnesty.

Holding employers who hire illegal immigrants accountable, with beefed-up ID requirements - no excuses.
Harry Reid and Senate Democrats have played partisan politics and resisted these basic reform principles and have attempted to block border security legislation at every turn. Every day of Reid's obstruction is one more day with a broken system that isn't working.


Sign our petition to demand solutions, not politics. And call your Senators and Representatives to tell them that you support the President's plan for real border security.

America is a nation of laws. We are also a welcoming nation, one that moves forward confidently in the tradition of Ronald Reagan, who called America a "shining city on the hill" with the doors "open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here." There is no contradiction between these American values. Together, we will secure the border and welcome those who wish to come here legally and build a better life.

This is a decisive moment. The time for action on immigration reform is now.

Sincerely,

Ken Mehlman
Chairman, Republican National Committee

3. Errrr. So not a single republican will call a republican house member.
Since the repubs are the ones blocking the president, bushs' program will go down in flames. Too fucking funny.

The one that authorizes the hiring of 1,000 additional Border Patrol agents as well as the purchase of new helicopters and boats?

Oh - and I love this - "America is a nation of laws". Good one Ken. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
