Actually, I was an occasional Navarette reader, now and then, until I sort of lost track of him....not a bad read, as long as you keep in mind that he's got an agenda, and the story is ALWAYS going to have the same ending, and he's never going to make any allowances for the 'other side'.

Brilliant points.....excellently worded, and relevant to the very essence of the entire controversy. Wish I could 'rep' you, but I can't.....(the moderator would allow me to, but I can't).....

Your post reminds me af a dear friend I once worked with....the fellow was often given to deep moments of insight. I recall once in 1992, when the city of Homestead, FL was almost wiped out by Hurricane Andrew, we sat together eating lunch and pondering such matters. He allowed that it "was kinda sad what happened", all right. But he couldn't REALLY feel TOO sorry for those folks, because they were PROBABLY all rich, and anyway, "they shouldn't have built their houses in the path of a hurricane".

Thanks for your post...I just LOVE a reasoned debate....and it's not often one hears such wisdom.

Because I am an American.......next inane question?

Face it: your side is losing--------big time.

Just that the pro illegal folks are still in denial------in the face of exploding anti illegal immigrant sentiment.

It's obvious that Navarette believes all Mexican citizens have an unlimited right to come to the USA in whatever numbers. My question is -- does Navarette believe that ALL people of ALL countries are in no way obligated to respect American immigration laws, or does he believe this total access to the USA belongs only to Mexicans?

LOL...since i'm an american too, don't ever suggest again that i move from this country.

I don't see how "my side" is losing. The only thing trying to explode in this nation is the anti-immigrant sentiment practiced and encouraged by so many of you on here.

Again with the 'anti-immigrant' label when you KNOW it's deceitful. What is it about you illegal alien apologists that precludes you from realizing the difference?

I have nothing but love for legal immigrants, although I do believe that 2 million a year is a little much. I don't think our infrastructure and social service systems can take much more.

I am vehemently anti-illegal alien, REGARDLESS of their country of origin, and I think that the employers of these illegals need to get a good, long look at the inside of a jail cell while their EX-employees are removed from my country.

You are correct: the truth does hurt.

I have nothing against legal immigrants.

Illegal immigrants need to be deported and have their assets seized.

In other words: blacknight04, quit trying to obfuscate the issue with your twisted lies about what I and many others state here.
