Why does it bother you whether a thread remains in this forum? Do you concentrate on the validity of threads in other forums, or just immigration? Iím not trying to antagonize you, Iím simply curious. Personally, I donít care if a thread is moved or remains. If I choose to continue to post, I can post in the new location as easily as here.

It was a neutral comment. Don't mean for you to feel threatened, and don't mean to interrupt the fun. Carry on

Not to worry, I don't feel threatened by much. I simply find the attention interesting. It seems as soon as a certain regular member of this forum posts a thread, radar is activated, and swarms of illegal alien apologists question its validity. Human behavior is my profession, and the group dynamics of this forum are fascinating. Sorry if you misinterpreted my comments. No harm intended.

I 'call out' illegal alien apologists with gusto----------especially with the economy continuing to deteriorate.

For the love of God... This is a forum of Immigration period. Not a forum of Illegal Immigration any more than a forum for Legal Immigration. So both sides are here (pro/against) to "hopefully" discuss ideas and thoughts as is the purpose of a forum. True certain member has a right to post whatever they chose as long as it relates to immigration. And those who support or are against are also allowed to counter.

The problem is both sides seem to mostly want to whine and complain where there is not a whole lot of debate or discussion. I feel like at times there is a race to see who can post the most immigration articles. I have yet to see realistic suggestions or solutions discussed. Sending all illegals out of the country is no more feasible than my suggestion of legalizing drugs in order to break the chain of violence committed by illegals who are drug traffickers. But at least it is a suggestion and a different approach. Immigration is multidimensional it is not one dimensional. Think out of the box folks and stop whining!

My, my, it appears someone is not a happy camper. Have you considered posting a thread for discussion, or sharing your sage advice on this topic? If not, why?

It is not my fault the vast majority of illegal aliens are Hispanic. It's a fact, and the sooner you and other pro-illegals accept it, the better off you will be. I can't change the facts to suit your agenda. Sorry.

I actually have posted in the past. In fact you and I have discussed topics in the past. I just can't stay on this forum long as it become boring and monotonous. For record before you call or accuse me of being one thing or another, I am not for uncontrolled immigration so don't categorize me. I am also a realist and accept the fact that it is logistically impossible to force all illegal immigrants to leave. There are little steps to celebrate such as allowing illegals to sue which in turn forces big business to think twice. There is no one realistic solution... it will take many to harness uncontrolled immigration.

I look forward to continuing this discussion, but it's almost midnight, and I must leave. See you tomorrow.
