    as border control.

    Border control and this immigration bill is the gateway for some nasty things, given the fact that it has become more of a border protection funding bonanza than anything else.  

    With 9/11 they exploited the fear of terrorists and look what they did with the permissiveness on surveillance and used the PATRIOT act against all Americans.  With the immigration bill they will exploit xenophobia and whatever tools and new powers they get as a result will also be used against all Americans.  There is no denying the history of how these things go and we're sitting here with a govt that is perhaps the most abusive of power, continuing and furthering the abuses that Bush/Cheney ushered in. They are out of control and we are ready to give them even more power and tools?
