Former Clinton Administration official agrees with Wizbang

Over the weekend, I described our illegal alien problem as an “invasion,” and outlined why I thought that term was valid to use. I was pretty comfortable with my reasoning and beliefs, and still am.

It turns out that I wasn’t the only one who thinks so. New Mexico’s governor, Democrat Bill Richardson (Bill Clinton’s UN Ambassador and Secretary of Energy), says the situation on his state’s southern border that he’s declared it an “emergency,” specifically citing illegal immigration and the subsequent consequences.

I kinda wish I’d seen that story at the time I wrote my piece, because it would have given me an additional piece of evidence to back my case. But by not hearing about it until today gives me a chance to re-visit my initial piece — and reaffirm it.

But one political aspect of this worries me. I think that illegal aliens could be the big issue in 2008. And it’s starting to look like Democrats are realizing that first. And not only are they talking tough about it, they’re actually doing something about it.
