TEXAS - George Bush has come out against himself, in an apparent bout of schizophrenia, and called for better border security! Unfortunately, it was when he was our governor, the other George Bush. Here is an excerpt:
When new President Fox swept into Washington this fall, he brought with him the new proposition that the U.S. and Mexico should work toward opening the border completely. Given that there are already 8 million Mexican-born adults living in the U.S. (40 percent of them believed illegal), and roughly 350,000 more coming every year, Fox’s daring proposal took many Americans’ breath away.
American political leaders reacted cautiously. President Clinton, while welcoming the Mexican President effusively, stated that "We have borders, and we have laws that apply to them, and we have to apply them, and so do the Mexicans." Then he added, "But I think over the long run our countries will become more interdependent." Vice President Al Gore praised Fox for his "big ideas, very large ideas," but also rejected the idea of open borders, at least for today. Texas Govenor George W. Bush said he believed that curbs on the entry of illegal aliens should be strengthened, insisting, "We’ve got to do a better job of enforcing our border."
