I have just about had it with the total disingenuity of this argument.
There are LEGAL and ILLEGAL Immigrants (I prefer the term Illegal Aliens, because it is harsher, and help seperates them from the legal ones), and it is the ILLEGAL ones that people are opposing.
If it weren't for immigrants, none of us would be here. People who want to come become part of American society are welcome. Those who want to be here illegally and sponge off the American system are to be detested.
So here's a question for you...are you saying I should work and slave my life away so a bunch of illegal aliens can have free education, child care, avoid paying taxes, and send their earnings out of country? I'm supposed to be ok with that?
I really, really want to understand how anyone can take this issue and blur it. Oh wait, our post-modern culture does it all the time. No norms, no values, no objective truth.
