Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says
Bush Amnesty is "dumb"

From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

...the president tonight also is expected to renew his push for a "guest-worker" plan. It's amnesty for illegal aliens. We have a real four-letter word for that -- dumb.

Administration allies say opposition to the president's plan is a "knee jerk." Give it a chance, they argue. Well, the only "chance" we see is for "guest workers" to become the newest members of this nation's ever-expanding shadow population.

Private Social Security accounts will strengthen the state of our union. Illegal alien amnesty will undermine it. We are encouraged by the former. The administration must come to recognize the latter.
