Maybe some of the rest of you can help me out here because I'd really like to understand. The question is: Why is it ok for Mexico to enforce their immigration laws but NOT ok for America to enforce ours?

Mexico can go hang: the USA is really tightening up ICE enforcement as we speak,

As I have said many times in the past: watch the economy.

Then why do so many want our country to end workplace raids and stop going after the illegals in this country?

Illegal alien advocacy groups who are petrified of the ramifications of hardening enforcement.

Here is a question for all of you. Why can't this country take away someone's citizenship when people show their treasonous actions and speech toward their own country and toward the citizens of our country? Do any of you consider some of these pro-illegal groups to be at least somewhat treasonous?

Treasonous, I don't think they are. Do they support American citizens, no they don't.
I'd love to get an honest answer from them tho, but that will never happen.

For the same reasons people ave to tolerate disgusting Neo-Nazi groups: because we have free speech in this country.

People need to watch the way they throw around a charge of treason. Treason is defined in Article III section 3 of the Constitution:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.


So the people can pretty much say what they want about illegal immigration, unless they make threats to kill someone. Neither is treason, but the latter is quite illegal.

So I hope now we can stop throwing around the "treason" rhetoric. You don't have to like what someone says, but they're saying does not make them a traitor to their country.

Do you find no fault in those who aid and abet illegal aliens?
