A few thoughts on the amnesty bill:

1) It's an amnesty bill.

2) It's fundamentally unfair, rewarding those who broke the law to get here and punishing those who have been trying for years to immigrate legally.

3) It's a fiscal disaster, adding a huge number of unskilled workers and dependents to the social services rolls. You thought the federal deficit was bad now? Wait until 20 million minimum wage earners hit Social Security, Medicare, schools, and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

On the plus side, I haven't seen this level of outrage among conservatives since Harriet Miers, Dubai Ports, and Amnesty 2006. And conservatives are 3 for 3 on those.
