Bush & Mexico VS America

Mexico may take fence dispute to U.N.
Mexico's foreign secretary said Monday the country may take a dispute over U.S. plans to build a fence on the Mexican border to the United Nations.

But...

Will Bush Veto the Fence Bill?
President Bush has not yet signed the Secure Fence Act.

We're approaching pocket veto territory here, aren't we? Under the Constitution Bush has 10 days to sign the bill into law--a deadline that would seem to be rapidly approaching.

Stabbed in the front and the back.

The whole situation is absurd. You have Mexico demanding amnesty for illegal immigrants, and yet the president of the United States agrees.

They are partners in crime.

Maybe he understands something you don't.

I hate to say this Daniel, but in the USA Today (30 Sep. 2006) there was a small side-column article about the issue with animal migration between the U.S. and Mexico border if the fence is built. Now we have the environementalist and animal rights nut jobs pitching in the fight to avoid constructing the fence.

President Bush better sign the Fence Bill. I see why not. He should represent the legal citizens of the United States, not the people of Mexico.

All a big chess game and I feel pawnish!

A liberal suggesting Bush might understand something, how bizarre.

My guess is that Bush will use procedural tactics to push the deadline back to somewhere in the last week before the election, then sign with much fanfare.

Maybe Bush understands something bryan saxton doesn't.

I'm not a lib anymore than I'm a conservative. I am greatly concerned with social issues, and may take a lib's side, but I could never advocate a plethora of things they do such as abortion.

Anon 7:21:

Perhaps, but I doubt it, especially from someone who so fiercly advocates a guest worker program. Beleive it or not, but the illegal immigration issue falls farther to the right of the political spectrum than most educated conservatives are on. Most understand the economic ramifications of mass deportation, and have read significant studies regarding illegals and their actuall impact on society.

Just a side note, given Saxton's political advocacy background, I doubt that he will do anything to deport illegals even if he is elected, because he'll consider those who in Oregon care a small interest group.

Bryan, point taken. I'm very conservative, voted for Bush twice, and now think he needs to be impeached. Not just for his open immigration policy but for the way he has conducted the war and his complicity in this whole North American Union agenda and for his constant attack on our civil rights. He also totally botched up the response to Katrina and obstructed the 9/11 investigation.
As far as Ron Saxton goes, I think he must have some thought that the immigration issue is big or he wouldn't risk using it as his main campaign ads.
