It's not the spirit of the law. It's how it is being flouted.

The United States has a sovereign right to regulate the flow across its borders. I do not know any rational person who would argue against this. That is why we have immigration laws. That is why people who seek legitimate entry to this country have to apply for it. But people who get entry in this fashion are more than welcome.

However, somebody who illegally crosses the border is violating the sovereignty of the United States, not to mention its laws.

So, assuming all that, why reward someone who sneaks across the border for the express purpose of having a child and gaining the benefits of residency? It is a slap in the face to those who try to gain residency and employment through legitimate, legal means.

I recently got a fundraising solicitation letter via email from Dickie Boy. Needless to say I promptly responded by letting him no in no uncertain terms that after 37 years of his do nothing behind, I'm voting for change. Haven't heard back yet.

As for going to DC, that just may be do-able in the near future. Will definitely let you know.

Too many times when discussing immigration laws on this board I have heard "the law is the law" the immigrants are illegal, deport them.

I even have negative reps saying: "promoting the breaking of US Federal Laws" LOL.

Well here we are, law is the law, the derogatory term "anchor babies" is law, you are promoting the breaking of laws.
Sorry but it is not the law and has been misintrepeted for decades now and of course the people who want illegals for whatever reason are the ones who misinterpret it purposely. BTW, the illegals and the Latinos are not in any kind of civil rights struggle and I am sick of hearing that.

Who is promoting the breaking of laws? What on earth are you talking about?
It sounds like they do a lot of spinning of the facts if you ask me.

Any "special consideration" was always meant to help African Americans ONLY. It did not extend to other "minorities".

Just because some hispanic person comes in here illegally, it does not mean that I have to give them special privileges. We didn't DO anything to them, as we did the African Americans. For goodness sakes, they just GOT here, and they think they deserve special rights? Gimme a break.

Why do they think they get special rights? We did not discriminate against them in the first place, any more than discriminating against Irish, or German, or French. Plus, they're not even legal!!

I want special rights, too, because I am Dutch. "What about the rights of Dutch people"?!, I will scream as I put the Dutch flag above the American one as I march down the streets of American cities.

the pro illegals on here know what the law states, they know it's being manipulated (loophole)... of course they will come in here and state, well
I am not pro illegal.. (laughing) but spew all kinds of bull about why we should allow this to continue. Wonder why none (pro's) ever admit being
on the other side of the fence? maybe it just a bit too dirty on that side of the fence, maybe it's guilt?, maybe the hidden agenda is a bit "related" to those from the other side of the fence? It's funny how the pro's can spew all this pro crap.. but yet be "on" the fence, guess it's safer to state being on the fence, than state being on the "wrong" side of it...

You have said it well. It seems two posters on here are confused.

I honestly don't think they are confused at all. I believe they are absolutely pro-illegal and wish to destroy this country and all it stands for.

Agreed and therein lies the problem and why the backlash against illegal Mexicans is so great. While I do not condone anyone's illegal presence what infuriates me is Calderon who can't control his own cesspool financially raiding America and trying to dictate policy here so that he and the oligarchies can enjoy the fruits of America's tax dollars; the racist agendas, the whining, moaning, complaining, Mexican rag waiving and demanding bilingual everything as if we are Amexico and the total overall disrespect of American culture and rule of law, is utterly infuriating.
