If you think too many illegal aliens are in the United States, get ready for more: a lot more.
A Time Magazine investigation predicts three million additional illegal aliens will flood the U.S. this year. Three million!
Asa Hutchison, Deputy Homeland Security Secretary, told the Washington Times that it wouldn't be practical to round up and attempt to deport illegals.
This is an outrage. If we can't control our borders and enforce our laws, we can kiss this country goodbye.
While most of the illegals are, and will be, Mexicans, Time reports a sharply growing number are from countries with large populations hostile to the United States.
Congress has failed to insist that Federal agencies separate those who pose a threat from those who don't.
The open borders allow illegals to come into the country, commit crimes, and return home with little fear of arrest or punishment.
And who knows how many terrorists are here with more coming?
Who is going to stop this madness?
The Bush administration isn't, but it should.
