Mass immigration lovers can rest easy with the recess appointment of Julie Myers to head the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as the impressive consensus is that she is unqualified for the post and, therefore, just another Bush appointee rising through the ranks through the Presidente’s favour and patronage. On matters of immigration and national security, such a post is too important to be left to another unqualified lawyer whom Mr. Bush happens to like. That Mr. Bush would appoint a flunkey (and an unqualified one at that) to a major law enforcement bureau tasked with securing America’s borders tells us all we need to know about his commitment to the “national security” he so routinely waves in our faces to justify his power grabs. However, Joe Guzzardi at the VDare Blog does offer this silver living.
