Nancy Pelosi issued another statement, this time stating that the “Republican record on border security” is “a ‘catastrophic failure.'”

“Once again, Republicans are touting their record on border security in which they do not have a single accomplishment and have failed miserably. For five years, the Republican Congress failed to secure our borders and has repeatedly underfunded the border patrol.”

It’s true that Republicans haven’t secured our borders but it’s equally true that Democrats have been willing accomplices in not securing the Mexican border. Here’s just one example:

Virtually all Democrats were joined by the chamber’s lone independent and 28 Republicans in opposing Mr. Session’s amendment to the Homeland Security Appropriations Act. Only two Democrats, Sens. Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Thomas R. Carper of Delaware, supported funding the fence.

I know that Pelosi can’t control what Senate Democrats do but the point is that I’d doubt that she’d oppose Ted Kennedy’s idea of immigration reform.

Ms. Pelosi, If Democrats capture the majority in the House, are we to understand that you’d direct John Conyers to take up a strong enforcement-first immigration bill on the first day of the new Congress? Or would you give him permission to start impeachment proceedings> Would you tell Ted Kennedy to back off his spineless, no-enforcement bill? Or would you agree with him on an ‘open borders’ type of ‘immigration reform’ bill? I suspect that you’d choose the ‘Kennedy Option’.

It’s time that the Democrats didn’t try disguising a laundry list of complaints against Republicans as an agenda.
