Kill the Bill

I've gotta hand it to Colorado state Republicans. They're not as dumb as their voters. Here they see problems down the line and do the conservative thing: stop moving.

Sad to say, this may cost them a few jobs. I expect Randy Baumgardner's will now be added to every "don't retreat: reload!" list in the state. Craig Silverman's going to bitch about it on the radio, bet.

Illegal immigration remains a problem, but these "Arizona-style immigration bills" are not the answer.

You know, it's really easy to turn an "illegal immigrant" into a "documented resident." You just have to fill out a few forms...

Seems much easier than asking everyone, "Papers please."

I wonder, too, how much of this legislation is sponsored by people associated with GEOGroup. That's my conspiracy theory. It ain't got nothing to do with a birth certificate. There are literally people out there making fortunes running ICE detention facilities. Think about that for a second. Getting rich, running a prison.

So what if a raid puts that meat-packing plant out of business? Cha-ching!
