And there you have it

Bush's brother Jeb and Ken Mehlman today finally came out and said why he supports the immigration reform bill - and why he thinks you should, too.

In addition to arguing the merits, the two noted the political damage to the Republican Party after California in 1994 passed Proposition 187, a measure denying many public services to illegal immigrants.

"The GOP won the governor's mansion in the short term, but alienated the fastest-growing constituency in the state," they said.
Not because the bill will end illegal immigration, not because it will fix the problems of illegals soaking up public services, not because it will secure the border...but because it will get them votes.
