Brace yourselves for this one.

Are you sitting down now? Is the seat secure? Okay, I can start then.

I don't like what President Bush is doing.

Whoa, where did that come from, I'm sure you must be wondering. Well, I like President Bush and many of his policies. There is one however, which I am greatly opposed to, and my sentiments are shared by conservative blogger Michelle Malkin.

There are immigration laws for many reasons. First, it allows for people who are trying to get in legally safe entrance. These people are dedicated to it, and for that reason, we could expect that many would be striving to become American citizens. They want the jobs available here just as much, if not more than, the illegal immigrants.

There are also some major security issues. It is true that the 19 responsible for 911 got in through legal procedures (though still using false passports and such). But with tighter security on legal procedures, terrorists will be more likely to use weakened borders to enter the country.

Miss Malkin points out many other problems.
- President Bush promised to strengthen border patrols before, but instead thinks that allowing people in illegally is a good idea. Please Mr. President, we don't need Vincente Fox that much.
- Social Security, already a huge issue, could be made worse. Nearly $350 billion (that's billion, with a B) could be siphoned off to illegals with false social security numbers over the next 20 years. So much for that estimate of it going bankrupt in 2041, now I have to wonder if my people in their 30s and 40s will see any Social Security money now.
- Jobs taken by illegals would no longer be restricted, given them all the full benefits and also encouraging many more illegal immigrants to come into the country.
She lists a few other issues as well, and many other bloggers have spoken out against this as well.

Some people get offended when illegal immigrants are called as such, but that is exactly what they are. They are, by all legal terms, felons who are cheating Americans out of what they have worked hard to earn. A message must be sent to the White House, as well as Congress, that this cannot be allowed, for, if nothing else, our security.
