Intel bill sham

The Intel bill now being pushed by all of the usual suspects would do nothing to stem the tide of illegal immigration. We must make clear that that is the reason for opposition by some Republicans. Hat tip to Michelle Malkin.

Powerline and the Washington Times report on the 9-11 families who oppose the bill based on the immigration failings of the bill.
"You allowed the murder of my son. I will not allow you to kill my daughters," said Joan Molinaro, mother of a New York City firefighter who died September 11, as she first held up a picture of her son and then a picture of her two daughters. "No bill should pass the Senate, the House, anywhere, unless it contains immigration reform — you secure our borders, you keep my girls alive."

Rich Lowry at National Review explains why the bill does nothing meaningful.

The Scrappleface parody hits the nail on the head, as usual.
