According to the advocates of the current wink-or-turn-a-blind-eye approach to illegal aliens, we need lots of illegals because they “do jobs Americans won’t do.”
Well one job this American didn’t want is to attempt to read the 326-page draft of the immigration “reform” bill. Fortunately, Hugh Hewitt has stepped up and done it for the rest of us.
What qualifies Hewitt to stroll into that labyrinth of legislative-speak and full-contact lawyerizationalizing? Well, here are some highlights from Hugh’s resume:
. .a Professor of Law at Chapman University Law School. . .the recipient of three Emmys during his decade as an anchor of a nightly news and public affairs show for the Los Angeles PBS affiliate, KCET. . .served six years in the Reagan Administration in a variety of posts including in the White House Counsel’s office. . .is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Michigan Law School. . .
Other than that, he’s just another hack like me.
Tellingly, there are sections of the bill that even Hugh couldn’t decipher. Just wait until some low level bureaucrat starts trying to apply them.
As you read Hewitt’s eight-part dissection of the bill, keep in mind that John McCain is screaming and swearing at my Senator, John Cornyn, because he wants it passed quickly before anybody can actually figure out what it will actually mean for our country.
