Do you think these laws are cruel?

If not what are other alternatives?

Jim Crow, MLK and the civil rights era? Are they kidding me? Who is anti-"immigrant" anyway? Just more lies and spin by the pro-illegals.

Of course they are not cruel. We have no obligation to citizens of other countries. We also don't have the resources and infrastructure to accomodate all the citizens of other countries who want to come here. That's why we need immigration laws.

Here's someone who is anti-immigrant. And talking about LEGAL immigrants.

Miami and much of Florida look like little Havana with most Cubans insisting on Spanish only.
I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to figure out who the mystery anti-immigrant poster is.

I agree that you have no obligation to others. But that doesn't give you a license to interfere with other people and prevent them from working, nor does it mean you have a right to get in my business and tell me who I can hire.

If you don't want to pay for them, then I suggest you stop doing it. Not interfere with other people's private transactions.

So...in someone's sick, twisted mind, treating CRIMINALS like, well, criminals, equates to Jim Crow laws? Or slavery? The only "slavery" involved is when these criminals are brought in and work illegally for those that will employ them in below legal conditions. That's not SLAVERY when they come here illegally and by choice.

I think the writers at the NYT need to put down the crack pipe.

What a hypocrite.
Not only that but Americans are obligated to pay for these illegal's social costs through our taxes. We don't get a say in how our taxes are spent.
