Earth to Congress: This IS a problem and needs to be addressed appropriately

As we all know now, the Senate is taking up the issue of immigration reform. Now I'm not going to go into the nuances of what these monkeys in the Congress are arguing over. Nope. Not gonna do it. Why? Because it's insignificant to what should be addressed first and foremost by them, and they're turning a blind eye to it. Hugh Hewitt points to a series that is a must-read for anyone who is serious about reforming our immigration policies, and taking care of our security. From the first part of the story:

Because all but a tiny fraction of those arrested crossing the southern border are Mexican or Central American, issues of border security get framed accordingly and cast in the image of America's neighbors to the south. Right or wrong, in this country the public face of illegal immigration has Latino features.

But there are others coming across the Rio Grande, and many are in Boles' image.
People from 43 so-called "countries of interest" in the Middle East, South Asia and North Africa are sneaking into the United States, many by way of Texas, forming a human pipeline that exists largely outside the public consciousness but that has worried counterterrorism authorities since 9-11.

These immigrants are known as "special-interest aliens." When caught, they can be subjected to FBI interrogation, detention holds that can last for months and, in rare instances, federal prison terms.

The perceived danger is that they can evade being screened through terror-watch lists.

There is nothing in the draft that addresses this glaring fact. Our enemy is coming here, and they're getting in illegally. Worse, if amnesty comes to this nation, these people will be legal, and will have most likely skipped the background checks that are necessary to ensure we only have "good people" here. Memo to the nutters in the Senate: These people aren't coming here for the jobs that Americans don't want. They're coming here to hurt this nation and kill Americans with the maximum effect inflicted on the nation.

Apply pressure, people. Tell the Senate to insert the necessary provisions to keep an eye on those "special interest cases" from the Middle East, Asia, and North Africa where the jihadists have dug in, and continue to thrive.

Publius II
