No amnesty for you

The Senate has basically killed the immigration bill. Too hot for an election year. And, you know, every year's pretty much an election year.

I see a lot of sides to this issue. We need to secure our borders... but a wall? Communist Germany had a wall. But how do we keep the bad guys out (or control which bad guys we let in and watch) without a wall? Not sure.

Illegal immigrants broke the law coming here... but we can't practically round all of them up and deport them, and even if we did, what would be the effect on the economy? But just "making them legal" doesn't seem right either.
