[quote=JDubsMom;5339822]Television news host Geraldo Rivera on Thursday asked Birmingham business leaders to join him in urging President Bush to pardon the approximately 12 million immigrants living illegally in the country.

"Call off these raids and pardon these people, then go forward and help to heal the inequities and the other bureaucratic problems and irregularities with the immigration system," Rivera said.

Whoa! Is it just me, or is Geraldo setting the stage for illegal reparations? It would explain why laraza is so eager to align themselves with african american civil rights. Wouldn't it be a kick in the pants if illegals got what the descendents of slaves never did?

That's what they've been trying for.

Something tells me that would not fly.................

Especially with the hardening attitudes towards illegal immigrants.

"Call off these raids and pardon these people, then go forward and help to heal the inequities and the other bureaucratic problems and irregularities with the immigration system," Rivera said.

Rivera, host of "Geraldo at Large" on Fox News Channel, told an audience of about 350 people at the Hispanic Business Council's annual breakfast that Bush should halt raids on plants employing illegal immigrants and issue the pardons in his last few months in office. Granting illegal immigrants some form of documentation would make them feel safer to report crimes, he said.


"I'm not saying even give them a path to citizenship - let the Congress work that problem out. Let the people of the United States voice their opinions on that," Rivera said, speaking at The Harbert Center downtown. "But for God's sake, do what you attempted to do in 2007 with your reform legislation."

U.S. immigration policy has been racist nearly from the beginning, he said, and there has never been a legal way for a large number of Mexicans to become U.S. citizens. Rivera also said he is distressed by the racist rhetoric of the immigration debate and accused members of the media, including rival network CNN's Lou Dobbs, of spreading misinformation about immigrants.

"Gerald" needs to shut up and educate himself on this issue instead of trotting out the over zealously used race card in lieu of any substantial defense of why America hates this invasion.
Geraldo is intelligent, and if you are so sure that immigration will be taken care of, what does it matter to you. Getting a little worried are we?

It depends on which side of the fence you are looking at, I'm getting less concerned all the time

That's quite obvious. But your starting to act more concerned for the Law Breakers being excused for knowingly breaking the Law.

Your concern toward whats legal and whats not has obviously disappated also.

Classic example of bravado masking desperation on the side of the pro illegals.

That is because you read into things that are not there. I have always said that we have a problem with illegal immigration, but it was ignored on this forum. I do not think them coming to this country without all of their documents is not a crime. A crime to me is when you hurt or damage someone else, stealing, robbing, etc.
But to come here looking for work that pays more than Mexico is not a crime. To you it is, to me it is not.
I mentioned before and no one paid any attention...all of the hate that is spewed on this forum, makes people do a double take and most are sick of hate. That would like waking up and going straight for the obituaries, then listen to someone with all their aches and pains, and nothing but hate on tv. Some people thrive on it and others cannot stand it, and I am one of those people.

I almost did not answer this, because it is becoming weary. I have not done one thing illegal period. I don't know if I could say the same about you and some of your friends
