"Too tough on illegal immigration
Excessively harsh laws do nothing to bring about real reform".

February 21, 2008

It's getting ugly out there for illegal immigrants. States and cities are cracking down with harsh new ordinances, and the courts are upholding them. Not only are deportations at record highs, but immigrants are being detained at places previously understood to be off-limits, such as schools. The debate about illegal immigration, labor, social justice and international trade has devolved into open season on illegal immigrants.

Was there a story on the next page about how mean it is to send other criminals to jail? That seems more harsh than sending someone home.

When will pro-illegals stop comparing illegal immigration to slavery? Dred Scott? Give me a break. I'm sick of the nonsense rhetoric. The author is right about one thing. I am angry. Reading pro-illegal tripe like this article doesn't make me any less angry.

Talking Logic

THE U.S. wouldn't make harsh laws if you illegals would go home. TO GET AWAY FROM "YOUR TORMENT" GO HOME!!!!!

Let me get this straight (bear with me, please)..we now have approximately 15 to 20 million illegals living here, and this shows we're "TOO TOUGH" on them?...So, at what point do we become. "Just tough ENOUGH"?....when we reach 35 million?...How about we become "KIND"?...I figure that would be at about an even 50 million....

No joke.

Those illegal immigrant lawbreakers chose to come here whereas the Black slaves were brought here against their will.
