The cult of "something must be done" claims another victim:
Senator Jim DeMint, Republican of South Carolina, said he had doubts about this approach, but said Congress had to do something because his constituents were telling him that “they feel they are being overrun with uncontrolled immigration.”
And so he signed off on a bill that will probably ... increase illegal immigration. Good work, Senator.
Update: Apparently he hasn't signed off on it after all.
