But that's OK. That's not the problem that we have right now. The problem we have right now is that, every single day, you hear about illegals, people coming in here illegally."

That creates hostility, he said. Yet, unlike the nativists, Schwarzenegger doesn't blame the immigrants themselves. Contrary to the popular myth that illegal immigrants cut in line, the governor realizes that there is no line - not if you're poor and from a country where the number of people who want to come to the United States far exceeds the visa allotment.
"Those people didn't choose (to come illegally)," he said. "It's the only way they can get in here. ... It's not like you can stand in line and wait a few days and then you can get in. There's no way. There is a system that has been created on purpose to look the other way and to bring them in because everyone knows that we cannot function without them." That dependence creates more hostility. Schwarzenegger encountered some of that himself when he came to California more than 30 years ago, but not to the degree he sees it today

And it's about time that we hear about the illegal alien invasion! We have been turning a blind eye too long and now we are overrun with them! I think Arnie is way off base.

The article was written by Ruben Navarrette. That tells me everything I need to know.

You got that right. The man has already said, in so many words, over and over again how he loves the illegals, as long as they are from Mexico that is.

Fair and balanced to someone that supports his love of illegals.

I could not agree more, ArizonaBear.

Haven't you noticed how he along with so many other illegal lovers have so much trouble distinguishing between the terms IMMIGRANT vs ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS?

Is it STUPIDITY, DENIAL or BLATANT DECEPTION?
