John McCain says that he has heard the American people and now understands that we need to secure the border before enacting any “comprehensive” immigration reform. But John McCain has also said that he hasn’t changed his position. He supported amnesty in 2003 by name, proposed it in 2006 and 2007 without calling it amnesty, and says that anyone who says that he ever supported amnesty is a liar.
The presence of Juan Hernandez in the background of the McCain campaign tells me that John McCain is as weak on border security now as he ever was.
Old school Hot Air readers might remember Dr. Juan Hernandez. He’s a dual citizen of the US and Mexico, was a member of Vicente Fox’s government, and is as open borders as you can get.
Of Mexicans who move to the US, Hernandez has said:
“I want the third generation, the seventh generation, I want them all to think ‘Mexico first.’”
Meanwhile in Britain....
Gordon Brown's campaign to promote British values has been exposed as a sham after it was revealed he personally approved a decision to remove Britannia from the 50p coin.
The patriotic symbol - based on a Roman goddess - will no longer be on any British coin for the first time in more than 300 years, as part of a redesign by the Royal Mint.
An overhaul of all coinage in April, being billed as the most significant change to the currency since decimalisation, will see it replaced with a representation of modern Britain.-source
Almost 700 Britons moved abroad every day last year, it was claimed yesterday.
A record 250,000 emigrated in 2007, many because they wanted to escape high levels levels of crime and tax.
The exodus is a fifth more than the 207,000 who left in 2006, and a jump of 70 per cent on the 149,000 in 1997.
It is the equivalent to 684 every day, or one every two minutes, according to Government figures due to be released later this year and revealed in a Sunday newspaper.Meanwhile the numbers arriving in the UK is soaring, hitting more than half a million in 2006.
Nearly a quarter of a million of those arriving said they came for jobs and more than 150,000 more arrived as students.
Fewer than one in five were from Eastern European countries. They were outnumbered by migrants from Commonwealth countries in the Indian sub-continent and Africa.
Non-Whites = 88% of the population of the world in 2008 and rising.
Demographics is Destiny…
