Yes, I have pointed out that Sheriff Baca is of Hispanic descent, to show that there are plenty of LEGAL Hispanic citizens who are also in favor of enforcing our immigration laws

I get so sick of these pro-illegal advocates that try to use our Constitution against us to protect illegal aliens. What kind of Americans are these?

Interesting!

I think this is similar to how france handles its illegal immigration problems but outside of those communities, it is like a third world country came to they're homeland. My brother went to france and told me just outside of paris there are neighborhoods worse then the worst neighborhoods in NYC. =/

Your brother is right and these areas are very dangerous for non-immigrants (ie...natives) to enter. The same can be found throughout the UK and the Netherlands.

The interpretations of it go both ways.

"If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so." [4]
Simple: If a law is wrong, not only is it okay for them to disobey it, but they should disobey it.


Supposedly by Thomas Jefferson. The 14th amendment has started to fall under this idea.
