Parties Diverge on Illegal Immigration Issue

American Patrol Commentary -- August 27  

    The Denver Post reported that all four speakers at a Democrat panel discussion on immigration, including Rep. Zoe Lofgren, Chairwoman of the House Subcommittee on Immigration (etc.), said immigration law must be reformed before the border with Mexico can be secured. "The enforcement-only strategy of the current administration is not working, they said."
    At a Republican National Committee meeting on the platform "sparks flew when delegates got into a debate over illegal immigration."
    According to, delegates from North Carolina wanted to include opposition to "comprehensive immigration reform." This was opposed by Bud McFarlane, a man with a history of mental instability.
    The issue of the RNC’s comprehensive reform language is yet to be settled, but on one point -- border security -- there is a clear difference between Republicans and Democrats. Democrats want amnesty first and Republicans want border security first. Moreover, Bush’s failure to implement the Secure Fence Act of 2006 gives McCain an opportunity to distance himself from both the Democrats and an unpopular President.
