Another Victory for “France’s Giuliani?

France appears poised to continue its hard lurch to the Right as opinion polls and projections through the second round of voting scheduled for June 16 predict that Sarkozy's Union for a Popular Majority (UMP) and its center-right allies will win over 42% of the vote — under France's proportional representation rules, that would give the President and his allies between 410 and 430 of the parliament's 577 seats.

After promising “No mass legalizations,’ and “No backing away from the scheduled mass deportations,” as well as major revisions to France’s failed welfare state and ill-conceived labor laws (the 35 hour work-week and eight weeks paid vacation may be going by the boards), Sarkozy's popularity seems as high as it's ever been.

Food for thought; if France (FRANCE!!!) is talking mass deportations and refusing to legalize its illegal migrants, then why shouldn’t America take a cue from that?

I mean, after all, the NY Times and other Leftist organs have been begging America to emulate many of the failed French policies. Why not look to emulate one rooted in real common sense and true compassion?

Why?

Because lobbyists from both sides are leaning on the pols in DC from both sides to free up new voters (Dems) and cheap labor (Repubs).

The outcry from all of us has given them pause and now Harry Reid is trying to claim that this is another defeat for Bush.

Earth to Harry: Bush aint running anymore.

You and your feckless friends are.

Here's a question for you all: last year congress passed a bill to build a new fence on the Southern border.

It hasn't been built.

So why should we believe that ANY law that these bozos pass will be implemented? Any more than the existing rules regarding illegal immigrants.

As to the argument that the laws tear families apart, I have a simple solution:

Leave the US and reunite with your loved ones in your country of origin!

A win-win for all!

I agree with mal.

And I've said it before about the wall. Put those here illegally to work building the wall. (they're looking for work, right?) Then if they still want to work for a living in the U.S., let them come back through a gate and APPLY LEGALLY for citizenship.

If these terms aren't acceptable to them, bus 'em south!

That's the key Mal, the existing laws aren't being enforced and when Bills are offered that make "guest-worker" programs and "paths to citizenship" for illegals their hallmark and then promise enforcement, it's more of the same old joke, first heard back in 1986.

The thing I don't get about the "cheap labor" agrument is that legalizing these illegals would seem to undermine the cheap labor, as once their all legalized the minimum wage and withholding taxes are required, etc.

The "cheap lanbor" argument seems to be predicated upon the view that "we need illegal aliens to do work at wages no American can afford to take."

Legalizing those illiegal aliens here would seem to merely require MORE illegals down the road to feed that need for cheap labor.

Doesn't that seem counterproductive, from the "cheap labor" viewpoint?

I like the irony Dan O, but I'd like heavy fines for the employers of illegal aliens even more.

Once those illicit magnet jobs dry up, the vast majority of the illegals here would "self-deport."

It really IS disappointing how both Moderate Republicans and Liberal Dems have both sold out the country for, as Mal notes "cheap votes" (for the Dems) and "cheap labor" (for the Moderate "Country Club" Republicans.

I'm happy for France, but I sure wish we could find our own Sarkozy.
