God love Georgie Anne Geyer too. She and Molly Ivins are pointing out something very important that’s being left out of this whole immigration debate . . .

Immigration A NEWS ITEM FROM OUR IMMEDIATE FUTURE?(April 13, 2006) from www.uexpress.com/georgieannegeyer/

WASHINGTON — Here’s a news item from my wishful-thinking file:
After three weeks of demonstrations across America by illegal immigrants and others, President George W. Bush on May 1, 2006, gave a speech that was praised across America for its clarity and forthrightness — and that brought forth renewed hopes for Republican victories in the coming elections. We reprint portions here:
———————————————————————————Dear fellow American citizens, legal immigrants, illegal workers, and friends and colleagues across the world:
It is time for clarity on the crucial question of illegal immigration to our beloved republic. The truth may be painful to some — it often is — but we Americans can no longer live in this fairytale world of borderless nations, of men and women here illegally demanding “rights” and of specious economic rationales for illegal behavior. You know what a stickler I am for the correct usages of words, so let’s get a few things clear right away.

PROPOSED CUTS WOULD EVISCERATE ENGLISH-LANGUAGE VOICE OF AMERICA (April 6, 2006) from www.uexpress.com/georgieannegeyer

WASHINGTON — My first reaction, when I heard that the Voice of America is going to abolish most of its English-language programs to the world, was how downright stupid such a move is.
Since President Eisenhower founded organizations like the Voice after World War II as instruments to defend the United States by broadcasting fair and accurate news to the world, the Voice has been an inexpensive treasure house to the nation. It has influenced countless leaders, often when they were young, standing in the fields and back alleys of dictatorships and autocracies for whom the very word “news” is subversive.
