Does anyone think George Bush's immigration plan has any chance of becoming law? You must still believe in tooth fairies. For one thing, Bush offers a chance of citizenship to the 12 million undocumented Latinos in the U.S., but only if they return to their countries of origin, apply through the local U.S. consulate, and PAY A FINE OF $10,000! If you were undocumented, would you even consider this non-starter proposal? No undocumented person is going to do this. No undocumented person is going to voluntarily leave the U.S. where he/she is employed and go back and get on line. Bush's proposal is DEAD IN THE WATER.

Furthermore, the Bush Wall is odious. The United States is hated universally in the Islamic World. The Bush Wall creates a similar level of hatred in the Latin American World for North Americans. Think of the two hated walls that have been built in the last 60 years: The Berlin Wall. The Israeli Wall. Now add to these the Bush Wall. Bush pretends to be the defender of freedom, yet the Bush Wall shows him to be the worst offender. Bush is the enemy of freedom, just like communists in East Germany, and those neo-con Israelis who clamored for a wall imprisoning the Palestinians.

Freedom requires no wall. Freedom demands that a human being have an inalienable right to travel and go anywhere, without being hassled by artificial borders and cruel policies of ICE.
