GOP is fickle over immigration

The Tea Partyers now want to extend the existing horrendous steel curtain wall on our southern border by another 700 feet to keep out the influx of immigrants entering our country illegally.

The Republicans do not mention any other immigrants who enter our country illegally via the Canadian border or by way of the Pacific or Atlantic oceans. Why are they welcomed with open arms? Especially when some of those people turn out to be terrorists and inflict more harm to our country than those people entering from our southern border.

Some conservatives apparently also want to check the IQ of all immigrants and also test their aptitude, obviously to pick the cream of the crop from other countries. They want our corporations to hire highly skilled workers from other countries, and still do all the outsourcing they want. I believe most Americans would not like to see that happen, but would prefer to educate our own people. What do Republicans do? Cut funding for education.

Are we going to have to reincarnate Ronald Reagan and let him call President Barack Obama: “Mr. President tear down that wall”?
