1,282 Down, 11,998,718 to Go

According to Michael Chertoff, the feds recently arrested 1,282 illegal immigrants not merely because they were illegal aliens.

“This is not only a case about illegal immigration, which is bad enough,” Chertoff said at a news conference in Washington. “It’s a case about identity theft and violation of the privacy rights and the economic rights of innocent Americans.”

Kudos to Chertoff for tackling identity theft, but by his own admission, illegal immigration isn’t something that should be tolerated either. Although opponents of any border at all continuously squawk that we can’t deport all 12 million illegal immigrants, we should still give it the old college try. This raid could be a good start.

At a minimum, those who illegally enter the country should not be granted amnesty. As Ryan post just below this one illustrates, Mitt Romney understands that. Perhaps Romney should give the White House a call, especially if he wants to live there.
