Illegal Immigration


"An 18-year-old undocumented student named Jessica Bravo made an appointment to meet with California Representative Dana Rohrabacher to share her story. She was met with yelling, statements like "I hate illegals" and veiled threats at deportation." Presente.org

You know, I have no trouble with a nation wanting to have control over its borders.  It's the the hatred with which so many people treat illegal immigrants that I have a problem with.  See, until you've lived in the kind of situation these people have lived in, you can never really understand why they would be willing to risk their lives and freedom to come illegally to another country.

I also find it quite ironic that the country that still HAS NOT closed down the School of the Americas, which trains some of the "finest" terrorists out there and sends them back to their own countries to spread terror there, also refuses to acknowledge that any of it is their problem.  "We are not responsible for a failed Mexico."  Oh really?  Not even a little bit?

If you want to get rid of the problem of illegal immigrants, you might want to try starting with looking at your foreign policies first, including closing the SOA as well as taking a look at how multi-national companies do their business elsewhere and making them accountable.

What if the pro-life movement went about screaming "We hate women who abort!" calling them murderers and criminals and then in the same instant, refusing to help pregnant women keep their babies, because "it's not our problem"?
