You pay taxes; Illegal immigrants exempted

I'm not making this up. President Bush and Ted Kennedy did it. Unbelievable.

You and I pay income taxes or else we get slammed for fees and fines. Beyond a certain point it is a crime.

But the Bush-Ted Kennedy immigration amnesty bill allows illegals to get citizenship despite owing back taxes. Why? Because it is "very difficult and costly and extremely time consuming."

The process you and I suffer through every year is very difficult and extremely time consuming. But we are law abiding. Bush saves his sympathy for law breakers. What else can I conclude?

Boston Globe has the details:
The Bush administration insisted on a little-noticed change in the bipartisan Senate immigration bill that would enable 12 million undocumented residents to avoid paying back taxes or associated fines to the Internal Revenue Service, officials said.
