Here is another reality of our times destined only to become worse in the future ahead:
Remember the six men arrested in their foiled terrorism plot to attack Fort Dix, of which three brothers were illegal aliens? In a post by HotAir, we are informed the INS knew about these three illegals for two decades, but a beauracratic paperwork backlog allowed the entire family to remain here illegally and suspended any effort that could have deported them.
My jury remains out on whether a quick decision on the family’s 1989 asylum request would have prevented the near-miss at Fort Dix, since (a) their request could have been granted; or (b) they could have sneaked back over the Brownsville border if deported. Yet this story undeniably screams at how overburdened our government has become, and especially so the INS.

Gee. I wonder just how yesterday’s newly proposed “Amnesty Under Another Name” bill, if passed, would further bury the INS?
Behold the consequences of reactive legislation and a congress with a preponderance of members more concerned with re-election than rationality and responsiveness to their electorates.
