Grassley, King to Bush: Enforce immigration lawsI was going to send'em a letter but what's the point. Grassley's in the corporationist's corner and King trawls racist sewers for votes. That, my friends, pretty much sums up the core of today's Republican Party.

Washington, D.C. — Two Iowa Republicans called on President Bush today to
enforce current immigration laws, as the president traveled to the Capitol to plead with Senate Republicans to accept an immigration overhaul that he backs.
Both Sen. Charles Grassley and Rep. Steve King remained opposed to bipartisan legislation pushed by the Bush administration, amid a widening split in the GOP over the volatile immigration issue.
Grassley today with eight other Republican senators sent a letter to the president telling him to enforce border security laws already approved by Congress, whether or not Congress approves legislation.
"Thousands cross our southern border every night, in violation of American law, and President Bush's answer is to try and change that law," said King. "Instead of empty promises and self-destructive amnesty, I call on the president to enforce our rule of law."

Oh, yes, and one more thing, nothing will be done about "illegal" immigration this year, next year or in the foreseeable future.
