Responses to Bush's border speech
Benj Buck
May 16, 2006

It seems many of the folks in national media have no quams telling you what they think about President Bush's speech on securing our southern border.   Just consider a sampling of the headlines out there:

Good speech, one bad ideaThe Seattle Times
Bush's speech leaves activists grumblingChicago Tribune
President's Middle Path Disappoints Both Sides of Sharpley Divisive Immigration IssueThe New York Times
Father's message lost on Bush: Boston Globe

Of course politician throw their proverbial two cents at the speech as well.

Sen. Hillary Rodham C., D-NY:  “It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scripture because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably Jesus himself."

Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-TN: "Upholding the rule of law on our border is as important as defending our freedom in Iraq."

Sen. Richard Lugar, R-IN: "Immigration policy should be updated in a comprehensive way to provide some realistic resolution to the status of at least 11 million undocumented immigrants."

Gov. Bill Richardson, D-NM: " I need the National Guard in New Mexico to help with forest fires, emergency preparedness. The problem is that many of these guardsmen their mission is not border security. I'm concerned that they're tired from Iraq and Afghanistan."

Sen. George Allen, R-VA: "We need to secure the border. And I'm glad that the president has come around to recognizing that we need more enforcement at the border with personnel, detention centers, actual fences, and virtual fences."
