The brave men and women of Immigration and Customs Enforcement have averted a potential attack by terrorist parrots:
WASHINGTON (Talon News) — Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) issued a statement on Tuesday contrasting the government’s zeal in preventing parrots from Mexico from illegally entering the country with their efforts to stop illegal immigration in general.
Under the headline “Apparently There Are No Jobs Available That American Parrots Won’t Do,” Tancredo said he was surprised to learn of the “incredible success that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers enjoyed in apprehending smugglers attempting to illegally smuggle 150 Lilac Crowned and Mexican Redhead Amazon Parrots into the United States.”
The statement points out that ICE, however, has not had the same luck in preventing an estimated 3 million illegal alien human beings from swarming into the U.S. annually unchecked.
The Bush administration needs to address the open door that is our southern border before I’ll believe he’s accomplished anything as far as national security.
