Blair Bans the French

Feb. 7 (Bloomberg) -- U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair plans to allow only people who speak English and have skills that are in demand to settle in Britain, after polls showed the public considers immigration rules to be too weak.

Hmmm. I like it. Let's do it. Maybe not so strict. You have to be able to say more than "Ok", and "No Speak English" to immigrate here illegally. Blair is going as far as blocking out anyone who isn't an English speaking dentist. I say he's on the right track. I think illegal immigrants should only be allowed to stay if they can speak English. If it were up to me, illegal immigration would be illegal, but I guess that's too much to ask of certain states. Imagine if someone actually suggested doing this in the U.S. All Blair needed was a poll that showed the majority of the public thinks immigration laws are too lax. Here's a poll for President Bush. I didn't have to look too far. I just typed in "poll US immigration policy" in Google, and it was the first thing on the list. Apparently 70% of Americans think our immigration policy isn't strong enough. So why are so many politicians afraid of the issue? Perhaps because the Liberals will politically slay any politician who even mentions protecting our borders. I'm not saying we ban Mexicans, I'm actually in favor of making it easier on those who want to come in to do so legally. I'm also in favor of teaching them English, to help them succeed in our country. I wouldn't mind other education courses to help them adjust culturally, stay sober, and discipline their fricken kids, either. But such suggestions would be deemed by the Liberals as a heartless attempt to assimilate Mexicans and destroy their culture. Why are they afraid of educating Mexicans, and helping them to succeed? Because successful, educated Mexicans don't need Liberals to promise them free stuff in exchange for their votes. The uneducated will be more prone to buying into the lie that protecting borders is racist, and anyone who opposes illegal immigration hates all Mexicans. A secure border isn't about racism, it's about our safety. That goes for all of us, no matter what our heritage is.
