RedState: Open Letter To Sen. Mitch McConnell

RedState, one of the nation's leading conservative blogs, featured an open letter to Mitch McConnell today. The letter slams the Louisville liberal over pushing Teddy Kennedy's amnesty bill:

Senator McConnell:

Recently you said:
"I think the status quo is indefensible. The status quo is what's produced 11 or 12 million illegal immigrants in the country with no real plan - a de facto amnesty, if you will, for those who are already here."

Your statement is indefensible...

Reducing the amount of fence that was already promised to be built and leaving a porous border is indefensible.

Promising that the government really will enforce this new law (when it never has done so in the past) is indefensible...

Dismissing the legitimate concerns of so many of your constituents is indefensible.

I agree that the status quo is indefensible. Senator McConnell, tell President Bush to change the status quo. BUILD THE FENCE. SECURE THE BORDER. ENFORCE THE LAWS. After the flow has stopped, then we can talk about other reforms.
