Democratic response on immigration - PUKE!

Ok, so we already knew that tonight's President George W. Bush's address to the nation on immigration issues would be puke-worthty. So maybe we should have expected the Democrats to truly offer an alternative and inclusive message? Here are excerpts from tonight's Democratic response presented by Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois:
Real immigration reform begins with enforcement at the border and in the workplace, but it does not end with enforcement.

During the last decade, we have doubled the number of Border Patrol agents and illegal immigration into the United States has also doubled.

We need a comprehensive, tough and fair approach.

People who have broken our laws should not and will not be rewarded with amnesty. But people who work hard and play by the rules should have a chance to earn their way to legal status if they pay a fine, learn English, pay back taxes and go to the back of the line.

Hm, Republicans, Democrats, where is the difference?
