By December of 2005 it was evident that the Republican Right Wing was getting ready to create a new “crisis” that is afflicting our country. Not this time.
Given that during the majority of the Bush administration the Republicans controlled the Executive & Legislature (both Senate & House), that 9-11 occurred 5 years back with no substantive improvement in border security in said period (neither the Canadian or Mexican border), that the largest border of all, our coastline and ports remained porous, it is laughable that the Right Wing would have the mitigated gall to use this issue as a wedge in an attempt to corner liberals into the trap of being against the population. Their idea is to plant stories in all mass media about the strain illegal aliens are putting on society at large as well as the security implications. After this false impression has metastasized, they then challenge Liberals as being soft on illegal immigration and security.
In watching the discourse in the mass media and in the blogosphere, I fail to see an emphatic response specifically hammering every Right Winger that brings up the immigration issue with their specific failure, being the party in power, to submit or effect legislation to protect the border. This one issue packaged appropriately can show their incompetence and hypocrisy.
The reality is that the immigration issue is a complex issue that is not easily explained in sound bites (the preferred language of communication perfected by the Right Wing). As such it is best not to be forced to address issues of citizenship but hammer on border security as well as homeland security. We do not need get wordy or nuanced on this issue. Make the immigration issue our issue.
