Must Read: The GOP Approaches Its "Virtual" Divide

I link and quote it in my previous post, but I want to point out this is the must read for the day. Hugh Hewitt has some serious predictions and analysis on the upcoming speech and the immigration issue.
National Guard deployments may signal some temporary tightening of the border, but the refusal to embrace the House program to extend existing fencing by 700 miles, and to do so with a crash construction effort, will be to signal unseriousness on border security of a thorough-going sort. The border-security faction within the GOP is not to be confused with the anti-regularization movement, and wants only for the party and president to be serious about stopping the next 11 million illegal entrants, not deporting the millions already here.
