Since the Immigration issue blew up this spring, I’ve been hoping that the US legislators would actually pass reasonable legislation that works.  Well, it looks like that my hopes have been dashed.  The legislation proposed in the Senate would cost the country as much as 126 billion dollars over the next decade, and Republican leaders are opposing this bill in favor of the House legislation that would make illegal immigrants felons, build hundreds of miles of fencing on the southern border and offer no new guest-worker programs.  Is it too much to ask for a fiscally responsible bill that isn’t a knee jerk reactionary bill?  Besides, I have a feeling the Republican answer will probably cost nearly as much as the other bill when its all said and done.

 

Sigh
