Good grief.................

Aldermen unanimously approved a resolution urging Obama to use his executive powers to call an immediate halt to deportation of undocumented workers that separate them from families that include either a U.S. citizen or a child who would be covered by the so-called “DREAM Act.”
and then they have the unmitigated gall to try to tie deportations of illegals into actions against slavery?

Burke noted that in the 1850s, the City Council voted to prohibit law enforcement officials from cooperating with U.S. marshals then tracking down fugitive slaves. The immigration issue is a similar issue of “compassion and morality,” Burke said

Now, let them try to deny these children arenít being exploited as anchors. It truly boils my blood when they compare slavery to illegal immigration. There is NO comparison; none whatsoever. If caught, an illegal will be detained, and at the most, deported. Within a few days, they will return and resume their illegal lifestyle. They will not be shackled and beaten unmercifully, and then sold to a plantation owner as a gift to the lady of the manor. Their children arenít being ripped from their mothersí arms, never to be seen again. They arenít being branded, and hunted like animals, and killed for sport. Nor were they captured and stuffed like sardines on ships, and brought here against their will. This truly, truly pisses me off.

Why do you respond when you appear to have nothing to add to the topic? If you find my post "confusing" perhaps there's a reason..........and it's not my post

These kind of misconstrued arguments will hopefully come back to bite them where they sit. I'm with you, when they make these comparisons it diminishes the atrocities of our past. And they wonder who is rewriting history.

Too uneducated to realize, there are consequences for an individuals actions.
Let's change the consequence on the fly.

Cheating in the game and changing the rules when you get caught cheating, gets the game destroyed never to be played again.

Comparing slavery and illegal-immigration is just STUPID.

The open border crowd has no problem with 'anchor babies' and 'chain migration'. Look for the words 'chain migration' in the next push for amnesty. It was in the last bill.

the REASON-the confusion is in equating the Dream Act with "achor babies" one has nothing to do with the other...
