Cracking Down On Illegal Immigration?
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 — Citing concerns about terrorists crossing the nation's land borders, the Department of Homeland Security announced today that it planned to give border patrol agents sweeping new powers to deport illegal aliens from the frontiers abutting Mexico and Canada without providing the aliens the opportunity to make their case before an immigration judge.I don't quite know what to make of this since it seems to have just popped out of nowhere. After all the crap about accomodating illegal immigrants, I find it somewhat difficult to swallow this whole. However, this move (if it's actually followed through on) goes somewhat against the general tact that Bush as taken with respect to illegal immigration. I just hope it's not an election year thing but rather that this represents an honest effort to keep the bad guys out of our country.
