Illegal Immigration Still Illegal...For Now

Good news on the amnesty front: illegal immigration is still going to be illegal at least through the end of the year.

Barack Obama admitted today that his attempt to grant amnesty is going to have to wait. With Cap-and-Tax still up in the air (and likely dead) and ObamaCare in doubt, he's decided that it would be too much to try to move his amnesty bill this year.

Given the reality of election years, this may kill any attempt to grant amnesty to illegal aliens outright. It's highly unlikely that Obama's Democratic allies are going to be eager to cast yet another risky vote that may wind up costing them their seat in Congress. House Democrats are already on the hook for their vote on Cap-and-Tax, and it remains to be seen if they're going to be willing to walk the plank yet again to vote for ObamaCare. I have no doubt that Obama's been told behind closed doors that no-way, no-how are House Democrats going to be willing to go 0-for-3 after the Senate has already hung them out to dry twice.
