so what tie to immigration does it have?

its apalling that posters like jdubs cant separate citizenship from a mere human facto. its worse that they make this, like everything in their lil brains, about immigration.
i am glad i dont go around wondering if people are here illegally or not.

im happy for a success story regardless of citiZenship, and i am sadened by a tragedy regardless of whether it involves immigrants or not.

this story is about tragedy. not immigration.

some people aint big enough to see beyond race, others cant see beyond immigration status.

all i see is a tragedy. liberian or not. immigrant or not.

and then to bring in an unrelated case. thats trully appalling.

the quality of these threads is diminshed by idiotic posts. but the OP does a very good job of that all alone. so many irrelevant threads in this forum.

this is a tragedy. plain and simple.

it does not belong in the immigration forum.

I don't believe that the notion of having the landlord check immigration status was even mentioned.
