How about having the “migrants” respect our laws. Is there no end to these euphemisms? Irregular?

Quote:
GENEVA (Reuters) – The United Nations said on Thursday governments must respect the rights of all migrants, in a statement apparently targeting measures including Arizona's crackdown on illegal immigrants and French expulsions of Roma.

The statement from the Global Migration Group -- combining 12 U.N. agencies, the World Bank and the International Organization for Migration -- said it was concerned about the rights of tens of millions of migrants in 'irregular' circumstances around the globe.

Who cares?! It behooves us as a nation to get them off our land (illegals AND the d*mnable dangerous UN).

It could be argued that it doesn't behoove us at all. I've worked on immigration issues for a while, and while i was doing it in NYC, there was a serious concern that if undocumented migrants were deported, the hospitality industry (i.e. the economy) would suffer. There's ups and downs to every solution to the problem.

With millions of Americans out of work? Since when does this country's "ideals" advocate for illegality to make it prosper anyway?

I can see how, as someone who works on these issues for a living, and capable of politely expressing a difference of opinion, I am duped and dumbed down. Perhaps in the future, I will show my intelligence by refusing to believe anyone who doesnt share my opinions to the letter can't possibly have anything to say.

Am I to infer from this post that in order not be "duped and dumbed down" I should never consider the validity of polite discourse? I considered the poster of that comment's opinion, expressed my own without insult... how silly of me.

Oh, so they’re not all picking crops.

Someone needs to inform the media, and several pro-illegal posters on this forum.
