In a heated discussion about the Senate’s immigration reform bill on Hannity Thursday, Michelle Malkin said promises of tougher border security are nothing more than “empty gestures.” The Senate’s agreement to double the number of border patrol agents, expand border fencing and improve technologies does nothing to convince Malkin that the bill is something other than mass amnesty, and will somehow result in less rather than more illegal immigration.

“I reject the premise of ‘secure the border first.’ I hate these platitudes.
