Psssttt, McCain campaign--over here

Have you guys in the McCain campaign noticed this?

"The Department of Homeland Security has dramatically ratcheted up its arrests of individuals along the U.S.-Mexico border for various immigration crimes, according to statistics released today by Syracuse University. Immigration prosecutions hit an all-time high in March 2008, with 9,350 defendants charged. The number of March arrests is up 50% from April and up a whopping 73% from 2007. The prosecutions are part of a Homeland Security and Justice Department program called "Operation Streamline." Under the program, illegal immigrants caught along the U.S.-Mexico border are prosecuted on federal criminal charges that require jail time. The average sentence is one month."

So do you support what Homeland Security and the Bush administration are doing here? Do you endorse this? Do you want energized conservative support this fall?

Then you better start making yourself heard on this issue and on this kind of news, and soon. I'm not holding my breath, myself.
