The GOP Gets Serious About Border Security; The Democrats Go Ahab and Filibuster the Patriot Act

Email Email Print

It has taken four years, but the House of Representatives last night voted to get very serious about border security, voting to build fences along the U.S.-Mexican border, and to take other measures to reduce the flood of illegal border crossers, thus making the job of the expanded Border Patrol much easier. Here is the electronic guide to the bill. It is now up to the Senate to match the House’s very systematic approach to the nation’s border security.

But the Senate, hobbled by a hard left Democratic Caucus, can’t even renew the Patriot Act, which will now lapse at midnight on December 31, 2005 thanks to a Democrat-led filibuster. (The contact info for the four GOP senators who joined all but two of the Democrats in filibustering the Patriot Act is in this post.)

In less than eleven months the country will get to vote on what it believes about the priority that ought to attach to national security. The past month has revealed the true nature of the Democrats: committed to defeat and retreat in Iraq, open borders, and a crippled intelligence system. The collapse of the Democrats’ credibility on national security is complete. It isn’t a political party anymore. It is a suicide pact.
