CQ Radio: John Hawkins

blog radio

Today on CQ Radio, John Hawkins of Right Wing News returns to talk immigration. Both of us interviewed Senator John Ensign, the NRSC chair, and we'll talk about the different takes we had on our interviews. We'll also talk about John's continuing efforts to pressure Republicans in the Senate to defeat the immigration bill, and the effort in the House to work on the different issues separately. If we can, we'll even squeeze in some discussion about Jimmy Carter's latest jaw-dropping idiocy.

Next Thursday evening, I will debate James Boyce of the Huffington Post at BlogTalkRadio's Debate Central at 7:30 pm ET. The topics: Fred Thompson's impact on the Republican race, and Bill Richardson's policy on Iraq. Don't miss it!

Wasn't Richardson a former hawk on Iraq who actually went to meet Saddam to get him to release some U.S. prisoners at one point?

Obviously we're not prepared to process Z-Visa applications today, but it doesn't need to happen until the triggers allow it to happen in a few years. But until we have a national goal, like putting a man on the Moon for example, nothing ever happens. Start with the chicken, or start with the egg, but start with something.

"it doesn't need to happen until the triggers allow it to happen in a few years"

I know you are not stupid. Sadly, that leaves few alternatives for saying things like this. Everyone gets a probationary Z visa instantly, and the Y visas are also not contingent on the existence of a system for tracking them.

Illegals are already here, living next door. What harm does it do to identify them in the interim?

A probationary Z-Visa is only as valid as the database says it is TODAY. That can change tomorrow, or two months from now. The card is worthless without its online validation, like a credit card.
