President Douchebag Sounds Off On Immigration

President Bush is an evil son-of-a-bitch.

During my conversion from "San Francisco Liberal" to conservative, that is the one thing that has remained constant. I'm amazed that the Socialists - who have been railing against Bush for years - are suddenly in bed with him on immigration.

05-30) 04:00 PDT Glynco, Ga. -- President Bush cranked up his campaign for immigration reform Tuesday, accusing detractors of unfairly picking apart a compromise bill and of denouncing the legislation without reading it (LIKE HE READ IT?).

The president used his most forceful language yet in support of the Senate bill, which would establish a new point system for awarding green cards and offer legal status to many (ACTUALLY "ALL") illegal workers already in the country.

"The first step to comprehensive reform must be to enforce immigration laws at the borders and at work sites across America (HAHAHA - THAT'S REALLY FUNNY, GEORGE! CONSIDERING YOU'RE THE SAME DOUCHEBAG THAT HAS BEEN WITH-HOLDING ENFORCEMENT TO USE AS A BARGAINING CHIP FOR YOUR AMNESTY! FUCKING DOUCHE). And this is what this bill does," Bush said at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco. "For the skeptics who say (RIGHTFULLY) that we're not concerned about border security or workplace enforcement, they need to read the bill."

Bush accused conservative opponents of the bill of engaging in "empty political rhetoric."

"I know there are some people out there hollering and saying, 'Kick them out.' That is simply unrealistic. It won't work," the president said. "If you want to scare the American people, what you say is, the bill is an amnesty bill. It's not an amnesty bill (YES IT IS). That's empty political rhetoric, trying to frighten our fellow citizens (LIKE YOU CARE ABOUT CITIZENS YOU FUCKING CHIMP)."

Under the deal struck this month between the White House and a bipartisan group of senators, workers seeking legal status would need to pay fines and back taxes and eventually VERY EVENTUALLY) demonstrate proficiency in English.

Border security also would need to be improved before other parts of the immigration package -- including a temporary worker program and legal status for some workers who are currently illegal -- can take effect.

One reason Bush chose to speak to law enforcement trainees at this federal site about 60 miles south of Savannah was to underscore his commitment to improved border controls (YEAH, RIGHT). The bill would increase the number of border agents to 20,000, add hundreds of miles of fencing and vehicle barriers, and build 105 more surveillance towers.

"A lot of Americans are skeptical about immigration reform primarily because they don't think the government can fix the problems," Bush said. "And my answer to the skeptics is ... give us a chance to fix this problem (YOU'VE HAD SIX YEARS AND ALL YOU'VE DONE IS FUCK IT UP). Don't try to kill this bill before it gets moving."

White House officials declined to say whether the president has made progress in persuading members of his own party to support the deal.

"I'm not going to get into nose counting right now," said White House spokesman Tony Snow. "We have been inviting folks to take a look. And I think the more they hear, the more they're going to be inclined to support it."

The immigration package survived several legislative challenges last week, its first on the floor of the Senate. The administration and other supporters say they are optimistic that the bill will be passed in the Senate with its central compromise intact: legal status for many (ALL) of those already in the country in return for shifting the emphasis in the (DISTANT) future away from family unification toward a more merit-based system.

The bill's fate in the House is less certain.

Last year, a comprehensive immigration reform package squeaked past the Senate only to die in the House. This year, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, has said the White House needs to deliver 70 Republican votes or the bill will not make it to the president's desk.

"I appreciate the Republicans and Democrats in the United States Senate ... who put politics aside and put courage first to work on a comprehensive bill," Bush said. "It takes a lot of courage in the face of some of the criticism in the political world to do what's right, not what's comfortable. And what's right is to fix this system now before it's too late."
