Republicans for Illegal Immigration

I only wish this were an April Fools post.

Five Republican representatives from Florida have asked Bush to grant Venezuelan immigrants temporary immunity from U.S. immigration laws. It seems that Florida Republicans regard free elections in Venezuela, monitored and certified as honest by international organizations, as some sort of "dictatorship".

What is even more appalling is that our present government is much more likely to give Venezuelans a free pass than it is to allow Iraqis to immigrate.

It makes you wish there were some other political party in the US that could point out the hypocrisy here when the Republicans start bleating about "illegal immigration" again.
