You must be mistaken Benicar; all of us white males just cannot stand anyone outside of our race. I mean, oh my gosh, you're not "one of us!"

Oh crap, I now realize that I'm MARRIED to a non-white female. What am I to do?!!!!

BTW, I like your friends.

Peace to you my friend, and I really enjoy reading your perspective.

Just to stay on topic, which is something that I myself violated somewhat (hey, a little brevity is GOOD), you can DM me and I'll tell you how. But, I'm about to log off here so I won't be able to get back with you until sometime tomorrow. Perhaps someone else will be willing to help in the meantime, through a DM.

Okie dokee?

Illegally is not the easy way, but the fast way.

Those people are going to stay in the bottom rung, and in constant fear of deportation.
People who are here legally have more security, and a chance to move on to something better.

AMC760 said, "I think people immigrating legally should appreciate how much easier it will be for them, instead of wasting their time being bitter over people who are going to have to do it the hard way."

But you just said the legal way was the easy way.

He didn't elaborate on how he's taking the right route, or on how they are cheating. Maybe its because he knows in the long run, he'll be better off anyways. Educated, paid, better life. And he clearly sympathized with the people crossing illegally.

I just thought I'd share that. I think people immigrating legally should appreciate how much easier it will be for them, instead of wasting their time being bitter over people who are going to have to do it the hard way.
As in how it WILL be for them, as in down the road? The ultimate good?

As in life in America.

You said that the easy way was the legal immigrant way, and now you're trying to spin things.
