Mexico must approve any fence?????

Michelle Malkin reveals that the dishonest Senators inserted a requirement at the last minute that Mexico must be consulted before any fence is built. This is outrageous. There is a lot that the House needs to remove, but this is definitely one of the big ones.

Republicans who voted for the Mexican consultation requirement: Bennett, Bond, Brownback, Chafee, Coleman, Collins, Craig, Graham, Hagel, Lugar, Collins, McCain, Specter, Stevens, Warner, Martinez, Murkowski, Snowe, and Voinovich.

Bernard blogged This is political correctness run amuck and is consistent with the unadulterated crap going on in the United States Senate. Interesting that S-2611 passed because 62 Senators didn’t consult first with the majority opinion of America’s likely voters!

Slublog blogged I guess 'greater understanding' is more important than secure borders.

Bizzy blogged Put down whatever you’re drinking. Keep sharp objects out of arm’s reach. Someone who has been working here illegally for the past 5 years and who, because of family size, would have been entitled to the maximum Earned Income Tax Credit for each of those 5 years could receive a tax handout of over $20,000 — plus interest. You can start drinking again. You are forgiven if you change your choice of beverage to one with some punch to it. I hope the House can retain its sanity; the Senate has lost theirs.

Riehl blogged The American people need to hold the appropriate individuals, including the President, responsible. For now, the battle moves to the House by pressuring them to hold firm in conference. If they don't, I predict an entirely new political movement forming in this country, one that reaches across party lines and results in some significant number of these political hacks being thrown out.
