More Shamnesty

Fox News Sunday: Trent Lott and Diane Feinstein

A central fraud committed by those trying to sell shamesty is the line pioneered by McCain, saying that the status quo is "silent amnesty". In a sense they're right, but they're implying that it's the current bill or nothing at all.

But that isn't the case. Congress could pass a good bill. But this one isn't. They could fix the problems in this bill, but they won't, and they won't allow meaningful debate on amendments.

Bill Kristol is one prominent conservative who is self-admittedly "soft" on illegal immigration, and he thinks the bill stinks. When the "soft" folks aren't on board, something is terribly wrong.
